These movies get decent reviews; the first three movies are thought-provoking, but not uplifting. Links are to Rotten Tomatoes.
Cold in July: tragic, noir thriller about a man who kills an intruder, the son of a sinister ex-con. Critics’ darling. Viewers love it even more.
Belle: mixed-race woman raised as an aristocrat in late 1700’s.
The Immigrant: Polish immigrant falls prey to impresario shyster. This is a bit of a warning–86% critics like it, but only 56% viewers.
X-Men: Days of Future Past: haters vs. mutants. Critics’ darling.
Million Dollar Arm: ignore the numbers. Go see the Hamm-man.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier: if you like super-hero movies, missed this one, and it happens to be playing near you. I loved it!!!
