Here’s what’s hitting theaters this weekend: Jigsaw; Thank You for Your Service; All I See is You; and Suburbicon.

Jigsaw

A mysterious madman rounds up a group of victims to play sadistic games of life and death. Police soon find evidence that link the crimes to Jigsaw, the infamous killer who died 10 years earlier. Starring Tobin Bell, Laura Vandervoort, Matt Passmore, and Mandela Van Peebles.

Rated R. Mystery/Horror. Directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig. 1h 32m.

What the Internet Says:

“For the [‘Saw’] series' gothic themes to still be so relevant 13 years later and to have so much fan intrigue is a testament to the series' stamina and society’s penchant for cyclical moral debate... The franchise is timeless.” – Movie Pilot

Our Take: Spooky and complicated, “Jigsaw” poses controversial philosophical and moral questions that will keep your head spinning. It’s been 10 years since the last “Saw” movie, so fans of this famous horror franchise will be flocking to the theaters for this one.

Thank You for Your Service

Sgt. Adam Schumann tries to readjust to civilian life after returning home from the war in Iraq. Fellow soldier Tausolo Aeiti must deal with the aftermath of a bombing that left him with a traumatic brain injury. Will Waller searches for normalcy after surviving several explosions, while Michael Emory must deal with the effects of a sniper's bullet to the head. With memories of the battlefield still lingering, the soldiers soon begin their long journey to physical and emotional rehabilitation. Starring Miles Teller, Amy Schumer, Haley Bennett, and Scott Haze.

Rated R. Drama/Biography. Directed by Jason Hall. 1h 49m.

What the Critics:

“... Teller does admirable dramatic work here, his performance a testament to the invisible pain borne by so many of our returning members of the armed forces.” — New York Post

“The movie argues that the military stifles such breakthroughs on two fronts: first with a culture that encourages stoicism, second with a failure to provide prompt medical care for veterans... wars are permanent for those who fight in them...” — The New York Times

Our Take: This film gives the audience a heavy dose of reality with its gripping message surrounding PTSD and the post-war experience of many American Veterans. This movie is eye-opening and heart-wrenching; an earnest tribute to modern Vets and the many struggles they face.

All I See Is You

Gina is a beautiful young woman who's still haunted by the accident that took her sight years earlier. Living in Bangkok with her husband, James, she undergoes a cutting-edge operation that restores the vision to her right eye. Now that Gina can see again, she slowly starts to realize that her newfound independence makes James feel jealous, threatened and insecure. Starring Blake Lively and Jason Clarke.

Rated R. Drama/Thriller. Directed by Marc Forster. 1h 50m.

What the Internet Says:

“All I See Is You is one of the strangest, most satisfying surprises of the fall... as a psychological not-quite thriller, it’s consistently entertaining; as a visual exercise, it’s more adventurous than most would be.” — Vulture

Our Take:

Blake Lively sets the screen on fire in this dark drama that has some very unexpected twists and turns. It’ll make you think twice about the many blessings – and the unexpected curses – of eyesight.

Suburbicon

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic, suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns – the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge must navigate the town's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit and violence. Directed by George Clooney. Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, and Glen Fleshler.

Rated R. Mystery/Thriller. Directed by George Clooney. 1h 45m.

What the Internet Says:

“Clooney is after something appreciably darker and riskier in ‘Suburbicon.’ He wants to both indulge and critique the vile, amoral stupidity of his characters, to draw us into a moral dead zone that, he insists, might prove instructive and even edifying.” — Los Angeles Times

“This scattershot satire of the dark underbelly of 1950s suburbia feels like a movie the Coen brothers forgot to make. It is their script, which means the laughs still have bite.” — Rolling Stone

Our Take:

If you’re a fan of George Clooney’s politically-charged films and dark humor, add this one to your list...
