A Dog’s Journey
The devoted dog is reincarnated into the life of a troubled teenager.

PG. Drama/Fantasy. Directed by Gail Mancuso. 1h 48m.

What the Internet is Saying:
“…Offers up an interesting, complex story into which we can sink our teeth.’” – Los Angeles Times

Our Take: A tear-jerker for sure – but if you’re a dog lover, you won’t want to miss “A Dog’s Journey.”

The Sun Is Also A Star
College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born Natasha Kingsley meet - and fall for each other - over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family's deportation just as fiercely as she's fighting her growing feelings for Daniel.

PG-13. Drama/Romance. Directed by Ry Russo-Young. 2h.

What the Internet is Saying:
“…An optimistic, all-American romance that succeeds in winning hearts.” – Variety

Our Take: This is one modern-day romance movie you’ll want to check out ASAP.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
After gunning down a member of the High Table -- the shadowy international assassin's guild -- legendary hit man John Wick finds himself stripped of the organization's protective services. Now stuck with a $14 million bounty on his head, Wick must fight his way through the streets of New York as he becomes the target of the world's most ruthless killers.

R. Thriller/Mystery. Directed by Chad Stahelski. 2h 10m.

What the Internet is Saying:
“Combat-heavy pulp of the highest order, this is the most enjoyably over-the-top entry so far. Where else can you get samurai dogs and a Tarkovsky reference?” – Empire

Our Take: He’s back and more brutal than before.
