The war drama "Dunkirk" leads the box office with $50 million; "Girls Trip" finds its audience with $30 million.
This warmhearted drama with some big names attached isn't terribly original, but it never suffers a false moment.
The lurid thriller "Unforgettable," the final season of HBO's "Girls" & the Criterion edition of "Lost in America" lead this week's new Blu-ray & DVD releases.
On this week's show Chris reviews "Dunkirk," "Maudie," "Girls Trip," "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" plus "Kong: Skull Island" on video.
As humble painter Maud Lewis, Sally Hawkins gives a performance that's essentially a portrait of pure love. One of the best films of 2017.
Kind of a goofy James-Bond-in-space adventure with fantastic alien critters, "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" is creative, but shallow.
"Dunkirk" is dazzling cinema, an all-time war movie and a genuine thrill ride in the purest sense.
Can a film still be a masterpiece while remaining intrinsically flawed? If so, "The Natural" comes as close as it gets.
