Weekend Movie Preview: Tom Cruise, Madea and The Joneses

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — If you’re heading to the movie theater this weekend, you’ll want to be sure that ticket is worth the price of admission. Thankfully, teenage film critic “Lights, Camera, Jackson” (i.e. Jackson Murphy) recently gave CT Style Reporter Meghan Yost the scoop on which new releases to see and which ones to skip.

Murphy weighed in on Tom Cruises’ first October release in 30 years: “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” in which the movie star reprises his role as an investigator; this time helping to uncover a major government conspiracy.

Murphy also gave his take on Tyler Perry’s ninth “Madea” movie: “Boo! A Madea Halloween.” In the film directed by and starring Perry, Madea watches her great niece on Halloween night and ends up having to fend off poltergeists, zombies and more.

Last but not least, Murphy talked about “Keeping Up with the Joneses,” starring Zach Galifinakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. In the movie, an ordinary couple discovers their super hot next door neighbors are really undercover spies.

So should you see or skip these films? For Murphy’s take on the films, watch the video above. For more information about Murphy, visit Lights-Camera-Jackson.com.
