In Theaters

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

This wonderful film made me laugh until I cried.

The Foreigner

Jackie Chan may be the marquee name here, but it’s Pierce

Brosnan who makes this action thriller as much fun as it is...


Reginald Hudlin’s look back at an early case in the

career of eventual Supreme Court Justice Thurgood

Marshall is as downright entertaining as it is sadly historic...

Blade Runner 2049

This worthy sequel is a feast for the eyes and ears. The heart? Not so much....

American Made

Tom Cruise gives his best performance in years

in a film almost too intently nuts to notice...

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

It’s been a while since Hollywood worked this hard to make us have a good time.

Battle of the Sexes

Have we really come a long way, baby?

Brad's Status

No, you don’t have to be a middle aged father college road

tripping with his son to feel how wonderful Mike White’s gentle

comedy is: you just have to have an open heart and soul...

Home Again

Yes, I’d hoped Hallie Meyers-Shyer would deliver the

kind of warm and wise romantic comedy her mother

used to make and I guess she tried, but...

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderburgh’s return to the big screen

may look like an Ocean’s reboot a la NASCAR, but don’t

you go thinking this is some smart alecky snobby spin...


Katherine Bigelow’s powerful testament reminds us not just of our history,

but, especially in light of recent events, makes us wonder if we, indeed, have learned anything from it.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde feels like a punch in the gut. And

not just because of the incessant, graphic violence...


Christopher Nolan’s epic isn’t just the best film of his

career, but one of the best war movies in decades...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

The moral to this story? You can gorge on a feast of effects,

but without engaging humans leading the way, you’ll feel

stuffed with a whole lot of nothing...


Once filmmaker Gillian Robespierre gets down to it, this

sophomore effort reveals surprisingly affecting layers...

Spiderman: Homecoming

This Spidey gets the job done.

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright puts pedal to the metal, delivering a genre-spin that’s colossal entertainment.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Matt Reeves’ stunner climbs to new heights, not just technically but emotionally,

assuring this as not just one of the year’s most ambitious, but powerful entertainments...

The Big Sick

Hating on this sweetheart of a rom-com must be the cinematic equivalent of kicking a puppy...

Wonder Woman

Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is so super, you could

almost forget how important it is. But I hope you don’t...

The Women's Balcony

This dramatic comedy may be very specific to an Orthodox Jerusalem community,

but its repercussions are both universal and very, very timely...



Oh, Amy

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Charlie Hunnam may play the title role, but this is very much Guy Ritchie’s movie.

The Dinner

Oren Moverman gives us a lot to chew on in this adaptation

of the Herman Koch bestselling morality tale. At times,he

serves up too much. Others, mystifyingly, not enough...


Pro tip: do not name your movie ‘Unforgettable’. People, you’re making this much too easy.

The Lost City of Z

James Gray’s adaptation of British explorer Percival Fawcett’s

remarkable true story is almost as romantic as it gets...

Going in Style

This remake is kind of like the Sweet N Low of old guy caper movies:

not exactly the real thing, but sweet enough to get the job done...

Beauty and the Beast

This Beauty’s got such great bone structure, she’s

pretty great even with a new blemish or two...

Kong: Skull Island

There are monsters among us. And if what you’re looking for is eye popping, easily

digestible escapism, you might be perfectly fine with these oh so cinematic hairy beasts...


Well, they are sure sending Wolverine out in style. And a big, oozing blaze of glory.

Get Out

I love this movie. Sure, I had a great time watching it, Jordan Peele’s mash up of comic horror and social satire...

As You Are

Miles Joris Peyrafitte makes an auspicious filmmaking

debut with this gritty and compelling coming of ager...

The Space Between Us

It’s been a long time since I have seen a movie this

confounding. What in the hell is happening here?

A Dog’s Purpose

Adorable puppies, wholesome messages, no swear words. Oh, and dogs dying. But they come back!

You’ll probably know from those words alone if this one is for you. Or not...


We may catch the glint of a wanna-be grand scheme here,

but this one turns out to be, sadly, only gold-plated...


Maybe it’s not saying much to note this is M. Night Shyamalan’s best film in years; what

really seals the hey-this-is-good deal here is James McAvoy, who elevates this horror handily...

The Founder

Talk about auspicious timing.

Hidden Figures

This gloriously entertaining slice of American history will make you want to

stand up and cheer. In many ways, it is just the movie we need right now...

Why Him?

Why Him? Why this?

Patriots Day

This third Wahlberg/Berg salute to American heroes is as

purposeful, effective and unnerving as it should be.

  Joanna began her career on the production staff of a local Boston television station. She then focused her energies towards radio and

began producing talk shows at WMEX-AM in Boston.

  After moving to New York, she found herself at WMCA-AM, where she served as executive producer to the legendary talk show personalities Barry Gray and Sally Jessy Raphael. She began hosting a one-minute movie review spot which, in turn, led the way to her own top-rated weekend call in-show, The Joanna Langfield Show from 1980-1983.

  When Joanna moved to WABC-AM and hosted The Joanna Langfield Show every Saturday night from 9:00pm to midnight, it quickly became the highest rated show in its time slot.

  From 1987-1989,  Joanna hosted Today's People on the ABC Radio network, which was fed daily to over 300 stations around the country. She also worked closely with WABC-TV as a regular on-air contributor.

   In 1989, Joanna decided to produce and syndicate her own radio reports. She formed her own radio production company, Joanna Langfield Entertainment Reports.

  Joanna is heard and seen domestically and internationally as one of the top authoritative commentators on the entertainment industry.
