92% Wonder Woman (2017) Don't be fooled. "Wonder Woman" may look like just another superhero movie --- but it's not. It's a tour-de-force by Gadot, not to be taken lightly.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Jack Sparrow may be a second skin for Depp, but he's delightfully, boozily amusing --- a perfect example of an identifiable character.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted May 25, 2017
71% The Commune (Kollektivet) (2017) The promise of delightful and possibly intriguing escapades amongst the cohabitants unfortunately devolves into a tawdry and unimaginative tale of infidelity and despair. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

45% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) "Paris Can Wait" is utterly and completely enchanting. Jacques gives Anne the trip of a lifetime --- one just about any woman would kill for... ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

87% Maudie (2017) The first two Oscar-worthy performances of 2017 belong to Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
35% Snatched (2017) Most of the dialogue is pedestrian and decidedly NOT amusing. And "Snatched" is rife with unsavory bathroom references and blatant attempts at sexual humor. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted May 10, 2017
51% The Dinner (2017) "The Dinner" is provocative, thought-provoking and many times difficult to watch. And yet, you can't turn away --- it's that good.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted May 2, 2017
82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) All of the attention to detail by Gunn and his crew pays off handsomely in making "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" the eye candy it is. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted May 2, 2017
50% The Promise (2017) As a gorgeous period piece, "The Promise" falls short. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
26% Unforgettable (2017) "Unforgettable" is one of those movies that is almost forgivable on a cold, rainy night with a fire and a glass or two of wine. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
89% Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants) (2017) A heartbreakingly beautiful film, "Heal the Living", demonstrates the immense power of selfless giving. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

60% Cezanne and I (Cézanne et Moi) (2017) "Cézanne et Moi" is one of the most beautiful films in recent memory. It has all of the right components to make it a classic. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Apr 6, 2017
51% The Boss Baby (2017) Baldwin is totally hysterical as the man/baby. He is gifted with the perfect voice and demeanor to play this crazy baby. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
81% Mean Dreams (2017) "Mean Dreams" begins with an interesting premise, infused with a few chilling scenes, but the showdown at the end of the film featuring Paxton is not as intense as the situation demands. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
46% Wilson (2017) "Wilson" is an amalgamation of very different characters who don't particularly mesh well. Nor does the character development coincide with the eventual outcomes of Clowes' outrageous plot lines. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2017
71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) From the spectacular opening number to the equally awesome closing one, every second of this film is special. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
76% Kong: Skull Island (2017) The final battle scene between Kong and his mortal nemesis, the Skullcrawler, is magnificent. It is as exciting and nail-biting as anything I've seen on screen. It is beautifully choreographed and ultimately satisfying without being too long --- for once!‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 9, 2017
87% My Scientology Movie (2017) Despite the pretty surroundings and well-dressed participants in the Church's own videos, Scientology is shown by Theroux to be a frightening cult, which can be at times violent --- and at all times controlling. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2017
100% The Last Laugh (2017) "The Last Laugh", as amazingly humorous as it is, made me cry, too. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2017
35% The Last Word (2017) I simply could not wait for "The Last Word" to draw its last breath. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
9% Bitter Harvest (2017) I so wanted "Bitter Harvest" to be a grand, sweeping saga, exposing this indefensible, outrageous crime. Alas, it is not. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
93% Logan (2017) It's hard to fathom that we will no longer see the buff Jackman preening with those shiny steel claws, but he is getting older, so I suppose we should let him retire this character from his repertoire. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) What should have been a delightful romp with Arnett's cleverly, self-styled Batman, an arrogant loner with a uniquely raspy voice, has turned into a too-long and ultimately dull statement on the virtue of friends and family. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
98% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) This is truly one of those films which demands to be seen by every American citizen, considering our present state of turmoil.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
43% Gold (2017) "Gold" is a highly entertaining adventure, made even more so by the electric performance from McConaughey.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2017
30% A Dog's Purpose (2017) "A Dog's Purpose", the book, makes the reader laugh, cry, celebrate --- especially if you're a bona fide dog lover. "A Dog's Purpose", the movie, has some of that, but not nearly enough.‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

25% The Comedian (2017) If you can handle some of the questionable material in "The Comedian", then the rest of the movie will keep you hilariously entertained. ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
