A rundown of select films currently in theaters
“Despicable Me 3”
Steve Carell returns as the voice of the most lovable cartoon “villain” ever, this time reunited with a long-lost twin brother. Also, there will be Minions.
Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler play a couple that opens an underground casino in their home to pay their daughter's college tuition. Let's hope hilarity ensues.
“Jaws” 4K restoration
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water … the first true summer blockbuster screens at the Gateway Film Center. If you haven't seen it in a while, remind yourself how great it is.
Also in theaters:
“Transformers: The Last Knight”
The much-awaited conclusion to Michael Bay's loud, bombastic, overlong Transformers series comes to theaters. I know I was awaiting the end of this series.
This “Hangover” with a female-led cast wastes some serious talent in an R-rated comedy that is lacking on laughs. (2 stars)
“It Comes at Night”
Not the straight horror movie it's been promoted as, “It Comes at Night” is something far better, a smart, layered thriller that will leave you shaken. (4 stars)
“47 Meters Down”
This surprisingly taut, low-budget horror-thriller stars Mandy Moore as a vacationing American who finds herself at the bottom of the ocean in a cage surrounded by sharks. Seriously, it's good. (3 stars)
We finally have a really great superhero movie that half of our population can project themselves into. It's about damn time. (4 stars)
