A- 88% The Post (2018) The people deserve the truth and not to be lied to, but "The Post" shows that is easier said than done, and it's harder than just writing a story and sending it to the presses.‐ Detroit News

A- 100% Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton (2017) Kaufman was a button-pusher, he sought to get a rise out of people and questioned where performance ended and real life began. "Jim & Andy" carries on that spirit. Kaufman would be proud.‐ Detroit News

A 99% Lady Bird (2017) "Lady Bird" is a deeply accomplished debut, as much a love letter to Gerwig's hometown as it is to awkward adolescence. It flies.‐ Detroit News

C- 40% Justice League (2017) At least at two hours -- brief by modern superhero standards -- Justice League doesn't overstay its welcome. But like most all-star games, it's better as fantasy than it is reality. Level your expectations to the league minimum.‐ Detroit News
