Adrift ★★ 1/2 “Adrift stars Shailene Woodley (also one of this movie’s producers) and Sam Claflin (co-star of The Hunger Gamesfilms) as Tami, a free spirited dockworker, and Richard Sharp, the world-traveling British sailor from whom she becomes inseparable.” Read more >>

Hereditary ★★ 1/2 “You’ll see few debut films more technically accomplished than Ari Aster’s Hereditary.” Read more >>

Hotel Artemis ★★★ “You’d be forgiven if you mistake this film for yet another Purge sequel—that one opens in July. But writer/director Drew Pearce has landed a solid lineup of thespians for his dystopian vision of 2028 Los Angeles.” Read more >>

Incredibles 2 ★★ “Rather than conjuring a satisfying return, Bird replaced the boundless creativity of his 2004 masterwork with a predictable plot that barely coasts on autopilot.” Read more >>

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ★ “For some audiences, this will be enough. And for them, there’s another sequel on the way.” Read more >>

Ocean’s 8 ★★ 1/2  “Steven Soderbergh manufactured so many sequels to Ocean’s Eleven that he could probably make one of these heist movies in his sleep. But even though he’s settled into a role as producer, his fingerprints can still be felt all over Ocean’s 8.” Read more >>

On Chesil Beach ★★★ “Novelist Ian McEwan (Atonement) adapts his novella set during a single hour in a hotel room into this screenplay that’s filled with flashbacks upon flashbacks to flesh out the personal histories of the newlywed protagonists.” Read more >>

Solo: A Star Wars Story ★ 1/2 “Solo: A Star Wars Story suffers greatly from what was probably always going to be an identity crisis.” Read more >>

Uncle Drew ★★ 1/2 “Drew’s recruited by Dax (Get Out’s Lil Rel Howery), a dreamer who’s drained his life savings to enter into the Rucker Classic hoop tournament in Harlem.” Read more >>

Tag ★★ 1/2  “First off, this is not a remake of Tag: The Assassination Game, the low-budget action thriller that was a staple on HBO back in the ’80s. However, director Jeff Tomsic’s new comedy does share a plot that hinges on grown men who refuse to act their age.” Read more >>

Upgrade ★★★ “At the twisted nerve center of actor and writer-turned-director Leigh Whannell’s low-budget horror/thriller is an artificial intelligence that’s soon to be implanted into the neo-cortex of Grey Trace.” Read more >>

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? ★★★ 1/2 “Button up your sweater, lace up those sneakers and run to the nearest theater showing this affectionate portrait of the late Fred Rogers, the kind-hearted television host who guided generations of children.” Read more >>
