FIFTY SHADES FREED

Believing they've left behind the shadowy figures from the past, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and his new wife, Anastasia (Dakota Johnson), fully embrace their inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. Just as the Greys begin to step into their new roles, sinister events come to light and jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins. Also starring Rita Ora, Kim Basinger, and Brant Daugherty. Based on the best-selling novel by E.L. James.

R. Drama/Romance/Thriller. Directed by James Foley. 2 hours.

What the Internet Says:

“Is ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ a wily takedown of married bliss, or at least an acknowledgement that it makes the wildest among us a shade less exciting? Almost certainly not, to go by the contented sighs and cheers that greeted the finale’s dreamily domestic flash-forward at its premiere. Still, it’s fun to imagine this ritzy, ultimately rule-abiding film being at least that provocative.” — Variety

“Johnson and Dornan do their best in the roles, which are more multifaceted than previous films by virtue of ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ allowing the characters some opportunities to break from their respective archetypes – Christian, the inexpressive, possessive man can be charming, and Anastasia the timid, clumsy woman can be a boss.” — Screen Rant

Our Take: Fifty Shades fans are in for a treat: This romantic movie series just took a serious turn into thriller status. Get ready for more intensity and drama in this final installment of the popular trilogy. And if you don’t know what to do for Valentine’s Day, this one is ideal for date night.

PETER RABBIT

Peter Rabbit's feud with Mr. McGregor reaches new heights as both compete for the affections of a kind animal lover who lives next door. Starring Rose Byrne, James Corden, Daisy Ridley, Margot Robbie, Domnhall Gleeson, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sam Neill. Based on the classic children’s story written by Beatrix Potter.

PG. Family/Adventure. Directed by Will Gluck. 1h 40m.

What the Internet Says:

“It might not be exactly what Beatrix Potter had in mind for a film version of her classic children’s book, but Sony Animation’s frenetic and entertaining new age telling of the tale works well enough to keep the brand hopping into a new generation.” — Deadline

Our Take: Time to “hop” over to the movies! The beloved, rebellious, quirky Peter Rabbit we all grew up adoring is back – with a modern twist. Kids and grownups alike will find this funny flick entertaining and pleasantly sentimental.
