Now Playing (in San Diego)

Your Name is a great Japanese animated movie of a teen city boy and small-town girl
who begin to switch lives like dreams.

Born in China is an expertly documented year or so with wildlife including
pandas, snow leopards, golden monkeys and more.

Get Out is Jordan Peele's sharp, crazy, funny horror movie of a photographer
lured into a strange evil suburban plot.

The Circle (2017) is James Ponsoldt and Dave Eggers asking, "What does
it mean to be a human in a group? How about now?"

Frantz is Ozon's tale of grief and moving on as a French soldier seeks out
the family of a German comrade after WWI.

Their Finest is the making of a British propaganda film during WWII and loves
of its novice screenwriter (Gemma Arterton).

Colossal (2017) is a fairly obvious allegory with some subtlety, Hathaway
and Sudeikis nearly outplay underwritten roles.

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

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

Kong: Skull Island (2017) is a ridiculous moderately intermittently fun
King Kong monster movie set after the Vietnam War.

Logan (2016) is the best (i.e., the only okay) Hugh Jackman standalone
Wolverine movie, ridiculous but about in the right mood.

The Lost City of Z is based on the true story of a pre-WWI Amazon explorer,
passable but bogs down in the second half.

The Boss Baby is a silly 3-D animated movie with a weak plot but some
imagination and funny jokes (some aimed at Trump).

Going in Style (2017) is a senior heist movie not incredibly difficult
to sit through but not good enough to rate as good.

Ghost in the Shell (2017) is a somber, boring live-action adaptation of the
Japanese future-set manga and anime series.

New for Home Viewing

Things to Come [L'avenir] is a bright, realistic story of a divorce
for a philosophy professor (Isabelle Huppert, great).

The Founder (2016) is all-American Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton, amazing)
hustling McDonald's fair and square mostly maybe.

La La Land (2016) is Damien Chazelle's ace musical of an aspiring
actress (Emma Stone) and jazz pianist (Ryan Gosling).

Split is the best movie of 2017 so far, move over MCU and DCU for an odd,
neat Unbreakable Shyamalan Universe thriller.

I Am Not Your Negro is riffs on U.S. racism sort of connected to Medgar Evers,
Malcolm X and MLK by James Baldwin's notes.

The Comedian (2016) is a kind of funny movie with De Niro as a has-been,
might-be comedy star. Better than Grudge Match.

Sleepless (2017) is Jamie Foxx in a fun action comedy of errors with
Michelle Monaghan, Dermot Mulroney and Scoot McNairy.

Gold (2016) is based on true events involving gold, fraud and Wall Street,
not substantial in this movie's storytelling.

The Red Turtle is an authentic experience of 60 years spent on an island
with a f---ing deadpan turtle in only 80 minutes.
