    The Hitman's Bodyguard

    ★★

    Uet another unoriginal buddy action-comedy. Though it's nothing new, there are some pretty hilarious moments. Jackson and Reynolds have great chemistry and charisma, which lets the movie coast pretty far, but they can't overcome a boring plot. Ultimately, there are plenty worse movies in this genre, but also far better. This just leaves The Hitman's Bodyguard in the unremarkable middle.

  • Logan Lucky

    Logan Lucky

    ★★★½

    A redneck adventure, as goofy and fun as it should be. Witty and well written, which helps make it feel new. We've seen this movie before, which makes it less surprising, but it feels duct-taped together in a charming and authentic way. Logan Lucky gives a unique spin on a well-worn genre, and always seems to know exactly what it's doing. It's a sweet, heartfelt, and bumpy ride. Go see it.

    I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

    ★★★½

    I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore - It's dark. It's weird. It's hilarious. This bumbling revenge tale is great fun and well done. Check it out on Netflix.

  • The Glass Castle

    The Glass Castle

    ★★★

    Often deeply affecting, The Glass Castle does good work with a framework we've seen before. It's not extraordinary but has beautiful moments. Woody Harrelson has the best performance of his career. So many layers, you can see the deep wounds inside the character.

    There isn't much unique about The Glass Castle, and it has a very problematic ending, but it's often quite moving. Worth a rental.
