B+ 86% 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+ 30% Home Again (2017) Combining, as Meyers films do, pleasant fantasy with aspirational settings. I know I'll watch it again when it comes on cable, or if I have the flu or need to fold laundry.‐ Movie Mom

C 37% Leap! (2017) "Leap!" would be amiable if a bit dull if not for a crucial misjudgment about the main character's choices and completely unfounded total changes of personality.‐ Movie Mom

C 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) They quip, shoot, and punch their merry way through a buddy-cop action comedy so generic it may have been created by algorithm. ‐ Movie Mom

B+ 100% California Typewriter (2017) This captivating documentary pays tributes to typewriters and the small but passionate group who still love and repair them. It is filled with delightful characters.‐ Movie Mom

B+ 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) The visuals and special effects are next-level, dazzling, stunning, and worth the price of a ticket (3D please). But the best special effect is the lovely face of Rihanna.‐ Movie Mom

2/4 44% Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry (2017) Encompasses two different films, and neither one of them is, in fact, a portrait of the poet/novelist/farmer/activist Wendell Berry. Neither one of them, despite sincere intentions, is very good.‐ RogerEbert.com

B 60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) The problem with making the title character into a happily married good guy is that he is not despicable any more. He is therefore much less interesting than the villain.‐ Movie Mom

B 78% The Beguiled (2017) Kidman and Dunst are outstanding, with two very different reactions to the intruder. It is precisely presented, even beguiling, but Coppola needs to move on or go deeper.‐ Movie Mom

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
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2017

B- 16% The Mummy (2017) A plane crash scene is viscerally exciting, and sets up the movie's funniest line later on. But it cannot make its mind up whether it wants to be adventure, horror, or camp.‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
B+ 84% Megan Leavey (2017) Cowperthwaite is a documentarian and brings a low-key naturalism to the storytelling, and Mara is excellent in revealing Leavey's growing sense of confidence and purpose.‐ Movie Mom

B+ 95% The Women's Balcony (Ismach Hatani) (2017) Immensely charming in its depiction of the quiet, gentle humanity of the community and the way their commitment to Judaism is reflected in every aspect of their lives.‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
B- 20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) The kids in the audience, mostly fans of the book series, enjoyed it very much, but adults are likely to find it a very long haul indeed.‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
B- 45% Everything, Everything (2017) Anyone over 15 may be distracted by impracticalities that go from improbable to preposterous, but might just enjoy the pleasures of watching Maddy wake up to the world.‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted May 18, 2017
B- 36% Snatched (2017) Too bad Hawn is relegated to the dreary role of the risk-averse mother. And Schumer continues to relegate herself to the almost-as-dreary role of the immature millennial.‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
B+ 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) Still delightfully off-kilter, still deliciously irreverent, and still delectably scored with 70's pop songs. ‐ Beliefnet
Read More | Posted May 3, 2017
C 17% The Circle (2017) In the last forty minutes it becomes clear that the people behind it have not thought very deeply about those questions, much less the answers.‐ Beliefnet
