Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

An inoffensive fourth entry in a series that is hardly groundbreaking, this family film can at least say it might get your kids reading.

Alien: Covenant

"Alien: Covenant" has moments of brilliance surrounded by tired retreads.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Uniquely awful, in that unlike half-considered blockbuster messes this one combines two fully considered, awful attempts at the same story spliced together.

The Dinner

Not since “My Dinner with Andre” has a meal seemed so full of portents and human collateral.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

A perfect sequel, a movie utterly different than the first film while still full of all the comedy, action and heart you expect from the franchise.


A clever take on the "returning home" drama with a little kaiju thrown in for good measure.


The quotidian dilemmas of a Romanian doctor force him to examine his morals, hopes and the tatters of his various mislaid relationships.


Undeniably fun in a trashy sort of way, "Unforgettable" is one of those thrillers about women fighting each other over men, children, jobs or all three.
