Critics’ choice

THE HURRICANE HEISTThis is pretty much what you expect when you pay to see a movie with this title: a few fun action sequences, a lot of genre clichés, CGI disaster effects and unemotional violence. – Michael Ordona, Common Sense MediaBOOK CLUBNo matter how you feel about the Fifty Shades of Grey books (part of the narrative of this film), it’s a treat to watch this quartet of excellent actresses on screen together, although the comedy is only somewhat entertaining. – Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense MediaTAGIt might not have much more substance than the titular game, but Tag offers enjoyable and breezy summer action/comedy entertainment. – Sandy Schaefer, Screen RantLOVE, SIMONTender, sweet, and affecting, this is the mainstream romcom that gay teens might not have even known they needed. But when they watch it, they’ll find themselves deeply reflected. – Joyce Slaton, Common Sense MediaDUCK DUCK GOOSEA tedious animated adventure that’s entirely devoid of any charm or imagination. – Tom Beasley, The Popcorn Muncher
