Coming Soon (to San Diego)

War for the Planet of the Apes is a sad, derivative, unimaginative capper
to what might have been a great sci-fi trilogy.

Now Playing (in San Diego)

The Beguiled (2017) is the story of women at a Virginia school for girls
who take in a wounded Union Civil War soldier.

My Cousin Rachel (2017) is Rachel Weisz in a twisty story of sadly
predictable human reactions as tragically inevitable.

Wonder Woman (2017) is the best DC Comics superhero movie since 2008,
from director Patty Jenkins. Want to like it? See it.

Despicable Me 3 is a funny further adventure of supervillain-turned-good-guy
Gru as he visits his newly discovered twin.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a new adventure for the Guardians lacking
some wit, zing and novelty of the first movie.

Baby Driver is a fun, not particularly spectacular or charismatic car chase/heist
picaresque with quite weak characters.

47 Meters Down is a tense shark attack movie somewhat blunted by reliance
on the metric system, 47 m. is more than 150 ft.

Rough Night (2017) is a very silly, largely amoral, weirdly funny comedy
about a bachelorette party gone horribly wrong.

Alien: Covenant is a dumbed-down Prometheus sequel running desperately
for Alien franchise cover, with mixed results.

The Book of Henry is an implausible and manipulative tale of a smart kid
and his family, probably not for younger kids.

The Mummy (2017) is a ridiculously plotted monster movie with weak characters,
explication, motivation, yet watchable.

It Comes at Night: "It" can refer to any noun, sometimes that's scary
or smart or fun. Slow as horror, thin as drama.

Beatriz at Dinner is a dinner party movie with many fine talents painted
into a dramatic corner and then declaring surrender. NO STARS

New for Home Viewing

T2 Trainspotting is Danny Boyle and Irvine Welsh bringing back the sunny
junkies of '96 for a true-to-character update.

A United Kingdom is a moving romance of the true story of an African king
and a London commoner married in the 1940s.

Wilson (2017) is Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern and Isabella Amara exquisite
in an absurd/hyperreal snort laugh inducer/confounder.

Okja is Bong Joon Ho's anti-industrial, anti-corporate, anti-extremes
sorta-E.T. as a girl tries to save her superpig.

The Lego Batman Movie is a pretty funny and entertaining meta-parody
of Batmedia from origins to beyond in Lego bricks.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) is an okay live-action musical adaptation
of the previous Disney incarnations of the story.

Land of Mine [Under sandet] is the late Danish Best Foreign Language Film
Oscar nominee, a WWII story, bit thin on character.

Life (2017) is a really kind of cruddy alien discovery space station movie,
not terrible as a (longish) monster movie.
