Chasing Coral

Making environmental catastrophe both visually alarming and so heartbreaking you’ll cry an ocean of your own, Jeff Orlowski’s documentary is cine-activism done with panache.

5

Lady Macbeth

This brilliantly feminist indie film plunges a cold, sharp knife into the back of period-piece dramas. Confusingly, it has nothing to do with Shakespeare: The tale concerns a teenager in Victorian England (Florence Pugh, like a young Kate Winslet) whose father has married her off to a rich miner’s son. But she has other plans in mind.

The Reagan Show

Smartly judged in terms of scope, this documentary takes a found-footage approach to the president’s iconic potency, which was carefully finessed.

Despicable Me 3

It seems third time’s the opposite of lucky with animated franchises. Like Toy Story and Ice Age before it, the Despicable series has made the short trip from lovably madcap to tedious in three films.

Wonder Woman

Looks like the DC Comics universe has finally hit its stride. Let’s thank likable star Gal Gadot and a team of screenwriters that remembers to have some fun.

Wish Upon

Teens mess with fate and suffer the consequences in this exhausted horror whiff, a movie of zero originality.

Cars 3

Pixar's speedy franchise rolls on to a third chapter preoccupied with obsolescence and getting tune-ups.

Transformers: The Last Knight

Michael Bay’s previous film, the Benghazi-related (and critically underrated) 13 Hours, was basically an art film for him. The explosion-friendly director now returns to his signature franchise, perhaps with more politics in tow. Adding to the grandeur is Anthony Hopkins in a prominent role. Good parts are hard to find, apparently.

The House

Playing suburban marrieds who find themselves too short of cash to send their hardworking daughter to college, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler find ample opportunity to cut loose with khaki-clad fury. The solution to their problems? Hosting a secret Vegas-style gambling parlor where trusted neighbors can unleash their inner Joe Pescis. It’s not pretty.

Landline

Following up her feature debut Obvious Child (and bringing along that film’s star, Jenny Slate), writer-director Gillian Robespierre attempts a more conventional domestic comedy, this time about a neurotic NYC family. Set in an overly showy 1995, the movie moans under the weight of its oppressive stream of cutesy nostalgia.

Killing Ground

It’s another grungy Australian thriller, but if you recall this spring’s Hounds of Love (or 2005’s notorious Wolf Creek), you’ll know this is a subgenre that Oz’s directors somehow know how to do expertly. In this case, a likable family heads into the wilderness for a camping trip. Doesn’t that already sound like an extremely bad idea?

Wonder Woman is brilliant. The performance of the lead actress is just amazing. The director dealt it really well. I watched it 3 days back and loved it. I am going to watch this with my kids on my onebox A great way to watch movies and Tv shows that you missed is by onebox app (https://oneboxhd.org). We can install it on Android phones and Smart Tvs.

A lot of these movies sound really good. I have been looking for something to go watch for my brother's birthday when he comes in town on Saturday. I'll see if he wants to see any of these when he's here. I'm sure we could find something good.
