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 Florida Project
Our own Chris Vognar says, "The playground of The Florida Project is dirty and dangerous, but its inhabitants, like anyone else, still need to play. This film gives them room to do just that."
Only the Brave
The Boston Globe says, "This absorbing film gets the message across without sensationalism, delivering a straightforward portrait of regular working men toiling at an uncommonly risky job."
Goodbye Christopher Robin
Hollywood Reporter says, "It's the chemistry between Domhnall Gleeson and newcomer Will Tilston, as the awkwardly matched father and son, that makes the movie more than a mélange of inept parenting and Tigger too."
Dallas Morning News art critic Richard Brettel says of this hand-painted film, "As you watch, your eyes simply cannot stand still, because each scene is being painted and repainted as you look at it, and the whole film quivers with a nervous life that becomes, in many cases, almost manic."
Blade Runner 2049
While Blade Runner 2049 may not end up being the classic the original is, in some ways it's as good of a sequel as you could ask for. Read my full review.
