" Kubo and the Two Strings" is a magical motion picture in every sense of the word.
Shines a light into a lesser-known corner of the huge chamber that contains all of the World War II stories and informs in addition to entertaining.

Director: David Ayer
Cast: Will Smith, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Ben Affleck
Gets props for kinetic energy and a couple of bravura performances but pretty much everything else is either mediocre or substandard.
Despite regurgitating elements from the founding trilogy, "Jason Bourne" represents the best the series has yet offered.
At only 96 minutes, "Nerve" is short enough not to overstay its welcome and, despite a lackluster final 20 minutes, it proves to be solidly entertaining.
U.S. Release Date: 2016-07-22

Director: Matt Ross
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Shree Crooks, Nicholas Hamilton, Annalise Basso, Samantha Isler, Ann Dowd, Frank Langella, Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn, George MacKay, Charlie Shotwell
Director/writer Matt Ross offers moments of genuine power and pathos that make it easy to forgive the missteps.
"Star Trek Beyond" is a Star Trek movie, although not an especially good one.
