mother! * * (Joyce) * * (Don) (Confusing allegorical horror) We, like most critics, disagreed on this one. First of all, it is a tense, violent horror story. Second, it is an allegory, with many biblical references. The star, Jennifer Lawrence, more
SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING * * * (Joyce) * * * * (Don) (Funny, exciting and Marvel-ous) Joyce doesn't like superhero movies, but I convinced her that this one looked different. This take on Spidey has a unique tongue-in-cheek approach to super-heroes that more
KIDNAP * * (Car chase in real time) Joyce, like many mothers and grandmothers, did not want to see a movie about a little boy being kidnapped, so this one's on me. Halle Berry plays a single mother who takes her six-year-old son to the park. She's a more
DETROIT * * * (Based on violent 1967 Detroit riots) You will need a strong stomach to sit through this extremely violent, depressing recounting of actual events of police brutality and uncontrolled rioting on the streets of Detroit 50 years ago. more

DESPICABLE ME 3 * * (Less of Gru & more of Minions would be better) Why do they always seem to make one too many sequels? Seeing less of Gru (voice of Steve Carrell) and more of the Minions would have been more enjoyable. In this one, Gru has reformed, more
THE BEGUILED * * * (Tense morality play) Sophia Coppola directs this tense, psychological morality play with a dark mood, moving ever so slowly from beginning to chilling end. It is 1864 in Virginia, right in the middle of the Civil War. Miss Martha more
INGRID GOES WEST * (Social media hits new low) What we have here is a film about social media starring an unsociable, insecure, obsessive-compulsive teenager that we hated with a passion. Maybe the younger crowd will enjoy the story of a stalker who is more
GOOD TIME * * (Choppy, unrealistic crime drama) I didn't have that good a time at this choppy, unrealistic crime drama, in spite of a good performance by Robert Pattinson as a down-on-his-heels bank robber who keeps getting deeper and deeper in more
