B 58% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) Does not have the lush glamour of the 1974 original and the tone is uneven, but the tricky puzzle is still fun to solve [and] the international cast makes it entertaining.‐ Movie Mom

B+ 83% Marshall (2017) This is an absorbing drama on many levels, as a courtroom mystery, as a historical depiction of the roots and mechanics of social change, and as a personal story.‐ Movie Mom

B+ 98% The Big Sick (2017) Smart, funny, touching, heartfelt.‐ Movie Mom
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
D 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) This big, loud, dumb, dull, nonsensical dud of a movie is two and a half excruciating hours long.‐ Movie Mom
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2017
B+ 68% The Journey (2017) Touching, inspiring, beautifully performed and very timely.‐ Movie Mom
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
B 67% Cars 3 (2017) If we feel disappointed, it is only because they have set the bar so high.‐ Movie Mom
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017
D 21% The Book of Henry (2017) Crosses the line from syrupy to smarmy, and where it wanted to be endearing, it was annoying, and then infuriating.‐ Movie Mom
