Your time and money are valuable, so you should invest them in good movies. Here are some films in theaters this week that have been approved by our in-house critics and/or reviewers from elsewhere on the internet.
The Women's Balcony
According to The LA Times, "[Screenwriter Shlomit] Nehama, who grew up in an Orthodox Jerusalem community like the one in the film, has said her goal was 'to tell the story of the moderate people who are forced to deal with growing religious extremism,' and The Women's Balcony definitely does that."
Lightning McQueen (voiced by Dallas' Owen Wilson) is now an old head, but he still rules the track. Read Dawn Burkes' full review.
47 Meters Down
DFW.com says, "We're going to need a bigger cage. The Jaws jokes write themselves with 47 Meters Down, a surprisingly effective shark-in-the-dark thriller that makes for frighteningly fun summer escapism."
It Comes at Night
The Washington Post says, "For much of its brisk running time, It Comes at Night teeters between delicious atmosphere and almost unbearable tension."
Taken just at face value as a superhero movie, Wonder Woman is one of the best in its class, matching some of the better efforts in a genre that Marvel has dominated for years. Read my full review.
