August 4

Maggie Moore(s) (2023)

When two women with the same name are murdered in a small town, Police Chief Sanders (Jon Hamm) unravels a web of small-town lies when he investigates the case with the help of a nosey neighbour named Rita (Tina Fey).

August 5

Assassin (2023)

When a man dies during an experimental military program, a former black ops soldier takes his place in an attempt to find out what happened to him. 

The only thing notable about this predictable thriller is the fact it was the last movie Bruce Willis made before he retired from acting. 

August 6

The Harbinger (2022)

When Monique (Gabby Beans) ventures out of quarantine to visit an old friend who is being plagued by nightmares, she finds herself drawn into a hellish landscape where she is tormented by a plague-mask-wearing demon.

This is yet another movie that uses the recent pandemic as a backdrop but it’s better than most due to an eerie atmosphere and well-realized story.

August 11

A Man Called Otto (2022)

Tom Hanks takes the title role of Otto Henderson in this second adaptation of the 2012 novel, A Man Called Ove. Otto is grumpy and intolerant of his neighbours but when a young family moves into his neighbourhood, this irascible old man starts to soften.

A Man Called Otto is a humourous and heartwarming movie but it’s not quite as good as the 2012 Swedish adaptation that came before it.

August 12

Billions – Season 7 (premiere)

Damian Lewis returns as Bobby Axelrod for the seventh season of this popular American drama series set in the world of high finance.

Here’s the synopsis for Season 7:

“Alliances are turned on their heads. Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.”

Margaux (2022)

When a group of young people rent a smart house for a partying weekend, their fun and games are interrupted by Margaux, the house’s super-advanced AI system, which has sinister designs for each of them.

Susan Bennet, the original voice of Siri, voices the malicious AI. Perhaps now is the time to delete Siri from your phones, just in case…

August 13

Biosphere (2022)

Thankfully not a sequel to the appalling Pauly Shore movie Biodome! This is an endearingly odd comedy about the last two men on Earth (Mark Duplass and Sterling K. Brown) who are living in a custom biosphere and doing their best to survive the apocalypse. 

August 18

Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves (2023)

Based on the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, this recent fantasy action adventure focuses on a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers who embark on an epic quest to retrieve a lost relic.

Chris Pine leads the cast as a bard named Edgin and he is joined by Michelle Rodriguez (Holga the Barbarian), Justice Smith (Simon the Sorcerer), and Sophia Lillis (Doric the Druid).

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Movie Review

August 19

She Said (2022)

In 2017, New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor received a tip-off that a Hollywood actress had been sexually assaulted by movie producer Harvey Weinstein. Her decision to break the story with reporter Megan Twohey shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and it sparked the #MeToo movement which gave people the courage to talk about their experiences of sexual assault and harassment.

This movie tells the story of the two reporters and the news story that caused waves within all aspects of the movie industry.

August 20

Next Exit (2022)

When a research scientist confirms the afterlife exists, two unhappy strangers head out on a road trip to join a study that will see them leave this world behind. Katie Parker, Rahul, Kohli, and Karen Gillan star in this poignant piece of sci-fi from debuting director Mali Elfman.

August 25

M3GAN (2022)

A grieving young girl named Cady (Violet McGraw) is partnered up with an artificially intelligent new playmate in this surprisingly decent horror movie about the titular killer doll.

We have seen movies like this one before, most notably Child’s Play and its various sequels, but this stands out as one of the best due to the impressive performances and the disturbingly life-like robot that is one of the best horror antagonists of recent years.

August 26

Wifelike (2022)

Grieving widower William is assigned an AI companion who has been programmed to behave like his late wife. However, things quickly become complicated for the heartbroken man when a mysterious organization, which is against AI exploitation, attempts to sabotage her programming. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) and Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies) star in this poorly-received thriller.

August 27

Agent Game (2022)

Dermot Mulroney, Mel Gibson, and Annie Ilonzeh star in this disappointing thriller about a CIA officer who finds himself the target of a rendition operation after an interrogation goes horribly wrong.
