55% Tag (2018) TAG isn't terrible --- it's actually fairly entertaining, when it isn't silly/stupid. And --- who doesn't want to watch Jon Hamm and Jeremy Renner in a movie together???‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

69% On Chesil Beach (2018) "On Chesil Beach" fails to make us care about the repressive mores of the early 1960's --- and it's a waste of Ronan's talents.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

85% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) Binoche is wonderful, as always. She is not the problem. The writing is what's wrong with "Let The Sunshine In". It's trite --- it's predictable. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

40% Gringo (2018) "Gringo" keeps up a fairly good pace with an entertaining script. There are multiple twists and turns --- and a few too many kidnap subplots. But it does boast some hair-raising moments and a lot of laughs.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

100% Paddington 2 (2018) I must admit I was very concerned about "Paddington 2". Sequels are rarely as good as the first. But I am thrilled that "Paddington 2" is every bit as good as the original, and that Hugh Grant is spectacular!‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
