What did you think of this film?
In this turbocharged heist comedy from Academy Award®-winning director Steven Soderbergh, West Virginia family man Jimmy Logan (Channing Tatum) leads his one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and hairdresser sister Mellie (Riley Keough) in an elaborate scheme to rob North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway. To help them break into the track’s underground cash-handling system, Jimmy recruits volatile demolition expert Joe Bang (Daniel Craig). Further complicating the already risky plan, a scheduling mix-up forces the thieves to execute the job during the Coca-Cola 600, the track’s most popular NASCAR event of the year. As they attempt to pull off the ambitious robbery, the down-on-their-luck Logans face a final hurdle when a relentless FBI agent (Hilary Swank) begins investigating the case.

Ingrid Goes West (2017)?

Title: Ingrid Goes West
Rating: R
Directed by: Matt Spicer
Written by: David Branson Smith, and Matt Spicer
Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, Wyatt Russell, Billy Magnussen, and O’Shea Jackson, Jr.
Release Date: 8/11/2017
Running Time: 97 minutes

What did you think of this film?
Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) is an Instagram-famous “influencer” whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid’s latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF. Built around a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West (winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance) is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Trip to Spain, The (2017)?

Title: The Trip to Spain
Rating: NR
Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
Starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Marta Barrio, Claire Keelan, and Margo Stilley
Release Date: 8/11/2017
Running Time: 110 minutes

IMDb

What did you think of this film?
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with director Michael Winterbottom for another chapter in their hilarious road trip series. This time taking their wit and appetites on a tour through picturesque Spain’s finest fine dining, Coogan and Brydon trade celebrity impressions and witty banter over paella and gazpacho, their comic observations on fame and friendship as dry as the finest Spanish wine. Older and maybe wiser, the pair’s conversation roams over many topics, but always seems to come back to fame, family, and getting older. Brydon is now a father, while Coogan is basking in the critical response to a lauded film performance (which he is happy to remind Brydon of at every opportunity), even as his agent seems to be losing interest in his career. The Trip to Spain is a delightful road trip comedy that feels like a vacation with old friends.

Brigsby Bear (2017)

Title: Brigsby Bear
Rating: PG-13
Directed by: Dave McCary
Written by: Kevin Costello, and Kyle Mooney
Starring: Kyle Mooney, Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, and Michaela Watkins
Release Date: 7/28/2017
Running Time: 100 minutes

What did you think of this film?
Childhood is when impressionable minds open widest to the mesmerizing power of entertainment. Nearly everyone can recall connecting with a show so completely it feels like a magical world created just for you.

But what if it actually was?

Superfan James is obsessed with the clever if quaintly goofy kids’ show Brigsby Bear to the point of religiosity. A bright, sensitive young adult still living at home, he has grown up with this fantasy series, and the program has grown with him as well — getting more complex over the years. But to say James’ intensely protective parents have kept their son a bit sheltered is an understatement.

One dramatic night, James’ insular world is upended. Through the disorienting but sporadically hilarious transition to a new life that follows, Brigsby remains James’ security blanket and, upon learning the series has been cancelled, he adopts the old adage that the show must go on. Family members and authority figures fret over James’ fixation, but by becoming Brigsby Bear’s new creator instead of just a viewer in the dark, he finally accesses all the meaningful connections his life has lacked. By telling his story, James repairs it — producing in the process an inventively offbeat and profoundly uplifting love letter to the redemptive power of creativity.
