“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, “Ma”, “Rocketman”


Godzilla: King of the Monsters
An epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. 

PG-13. Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Directed by Michael Dougherty. 2h 12m.

What the Internet is Saying:
“This isn’t a “Godzilla” sequel that throws one or two additional monsters into the mix. It’s a full-blown, shoot-the-works, open-the-floodgates-and-let-it-rip primeval-beastie blowout…” – Variety

Our Take: Another timeless Godzilla flick!

Ma
A lonely middle-aged woman befriends some teenagers and decides to let them party in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober, don't curse, and never go upstairs. They must also refer to her as Ma. But as Ma's hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on Earth.

R. Thriller/Psychological Horror. Directed by Tate Taylor. 1h 40m.

What the Internet is Saying:
“Playing an eccentric small-town stalker-pest as if she were a real human being, Octavia Spencer roots a formula thriller in something creepy.” – Variety

Our Take: Octavia Spencer had us on the edge of our seat the whole time.

Rocketman
Academic overachievers Amy and Molly thought keeping their noses to the grindstone gave them a leg up on their high school peers. But on the eve of graduation, the best friends suddenly realize that they may have missed out on the special moments of their teenage years. Determined to make up for lost time, the girls decide to cram four years of not-to-be missed fun into one night -- a chaotic adventure that no amount of book smarts could prepare them for. 

R. Drama/Biography. Directed by Dexter Fletcher. 2h 1m. 

What the Internet is Saying:
“The colors are stunning, the settings are striking and the energy is irresistible.” – Wall Street Journal

Our Take: Ah, the amazing musical Elton John deserves.
