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.
Sorry to Bother You
Chris Vognar says, "Sorry to Bother You commits to a topsy-turvy vision and mixes in enough of the real world to make the satire pop." Read his full review.
As of this writing, the latest Dwayne Johnson action movie is split 50/50 between "fresh" and "rotten" reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. We'll give it a bump into the win column, though, because it seems to deliver what The Rock's fans would want from it. As Variety says, "This is escapism, pure and simple, and though the structure is rickety, by enlisting Johnson, Thurber ensures that his Skyscraper is built on solid Rock."
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
The Los Angeles Times says, "Hotel Transylvania 3 may lack the indelibility of the medium's best offerings for kids, but hopefully its clear theme of acceptance lingers long after the inoffensive odor of its fart jokes dissipates."
Ant-Man and the Wasp
It's fun, it's funny, and it's got such lower stakes than Avengers: Infinity War that it's practically the equivalent of a relaxing Sunday afternoon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read my full review.
Leave No Trace
"Through lean, economic and patient storytelling, the film builds into a quiet and intimate intensity, buoyed by two of the most mutually attuned performances you'll see this year." Read Chris Vognar's full review.
