Some movies too painful to watch carry a message too important to overlook.

“Lady Macbeth”

This is a dark and brooding account of how a desperate woman trapped in a loveless marriage leveled her own playing field.

“Atomic Blonde”

The cold war, just prior to the Berlin wall coming down in 1989 provides the over-heated backdrop to the terribly titled “Atomic Blonde”.

“The Big Sick”

If you’re looking for a tender, touching and terrifically amusing true life comedy, nothing else comes close to “The Big Sick”.

“Wish Upon”

Beware of watered down horror films that carry a PG-13 rating. They’re liable to turn out as disappointing as “Wish Upon”.

“The Beguiled”

Would you believe? It’s taken the re-make of Clint Eastwood’s moody thriller, “The Beguiled”, all of 45 years to reach the screen.

“The House”

While watching “The House,” it will become painfully apparent you’re watching one of the flimsiest comedies of this generation.

“Baby Driver”

“Baby Driver” is a stylish crowd pleaser that guns its motor towards its destination of becoming a modern day crime classic.

“Beatriz at Dinner”

The intense, conflict-filled dialogue between Salma Hayek and John Lithgow in “Beatriz at Dinner” will leave you hungry for more.

“Paris Can Wait”

“Paris Can Wait” keeps you guessing with a great deal of charm, just like all films with that French touch.

“The Book of Henry”

“The Book of Henry” is independent cinema at its finest, inflicting pain as it makes a statement.

“Rough Night”

Jillian Bell must have thought “Rough Night” would be her ticket to becoming the next Melissa McCarthy, but “Rough Night” is no “Bridesmaids…

“It Comes At Night”

Try to imagine a shocker rooted in reality that’s got nothing to do with the supernatural.

“The Mummy”

Tom Cruise stars in the latest adaptation of “The Mummy,” a film that should have been left to rot.

“Megan Leavey”

You’d swear that “Megan Leavey” was plucked from the old heartwarming Hollywood handbook of a girl bonding with her dog.

“Wonder Woman”

Now we know the real story how “Wonder Woman” prevented a diabolical catastrophe during World War One.


Even Dwayne Johnson couldn’t save “Baywatch” from sinking to the bottom of the ocean…
