Logan Lucky

Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
Runtime: 1hr, 59mins
Comedy, Crime, Drama
PG-13
Trailer

Starring: Katherine Waterston, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Sebastian Stan, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane



Steven Soderbergh may have been trying to retire from feature filmmaking, but the existence of Logan Lucky proves that retirement was short lived. It's also a return to the heist genre that may be his most well known contribution to cinema. The Ocean's Eleven movies may not all be well liked, but they're all certainly well known, and the first one remains an excellent piece of entertainment. If the early reviews are to be believed, Logan Lucky is "high-octane fun - and proves he hasn't lost his ability to entertain." It's sitting at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Directed by: Patrick Hughes  
Runtime: 1hr, 58mins  
Action, Comedy
R
Trailer

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Elodie Yung




And now for a film that is about as star studded as Logan Lucky, but by a far less acclaimed director - The Hitman's Bodyguard is a buddy action comedy in which two rivals (Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson) teaming up to take on a merciless Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman). It's seen a very mixed critical reception so far with words like "generic" and "stereotypical" being thrown around.
