This year, the 4th of July falls on a Wednesday so you can definitely catch up on movies you missed in June on Friday or Saturday. “Incredibles 2” was much better than expected so definitely see this on the big screen and not at home.

My favorite time of the year has arrived. The first film I’m excited about is the sequel to “The Incredibles”. It opens June 15th. It’s been 14 years since the original came out but you will remember all the characters, especially Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl. This of course is appropriate for the whole family.

It all started in 1932, with a film called What Price Hollywood? In this initial take on the plot , the ingenue is an aspiring actress who is a waitress at the Brown Derby where she meets a director.

As the Supreme Court moves inexorably to the right there are those who have offered to donate their organs to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Both reviled by some and raised to icon status by others. Documentarians Julie Cohen and Betsy West have given us a mostly adulatory look at the life and times of Ms. Ginsburg.

The book begins with a prologue featuring an Asian family coming in from the rain with their unruly children to a ritzy hotel and requesting lodging. They are snubbed by the snooty hotel clerk whereupon they just buy the place. The tone has been set.

We live in a death denying indeed a death defying society and I am society’s child. In fact, as a nation we would rather not mention that troublesome event at all. People pass away, expire, or “kick the bucket”.

I can’t believe Summer is over! The great thing about September is that the Oscar caliber films start coming out. The one I’m excited about is “The Sisters Brothers” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Jake Gyllenhaal.

I can’t believe the end of Summer is approaching. The good news is there are amazing movies to see in the theater. The first must see movie is “Blindspotting”.
