Leave No Trace

Few little moments in film are as endearing as when you watch Mr. Foster and Ms. McKenzie click their tongues twice at each other to say “I love you.”

Sorry to Bother You

Be prepared for an emotional experience that will come close to sucking the wind out of your cinematic lungs.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

This film is a perfect example of why I see most movies alone.  I almost always enjoy the ride, and few others share my enthusiasm.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Comedy, great special effects and two dynamic female performances safes this film from its own weaknesses.

The First Purge

Have we already begun our version of the Purge by separating children from their parents in the name of domestic security?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Though it’s far from a great movie, who doesn’t enjoy watching dinosaurs devour a few bad guys.  But let me warn you that this may be too horrifying for younger children.

Dunkirk

If you majored in history in college as I did, this film teaches you more about an event in World War II than you will ever learn in a textbook.

Hearts Beat Loud

This little film defines why I love going to the movies.

Hotel Artemis

The only creative thing about this film is the inventive name of the characters ranging from Waikiki, Niagara, Honolulu, Acapulco and Everest.
