Helen Mirren is always great. I saw her a few months back at the Starbucks at 92nd and 3rd, and she looked great. WINCHESTER could well be the first good movie of 2018. Keep an eye out for my review in early February!

You had me at Michael Haneke. And then you add Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant, and we've got a very promising movie on hand. Really looking forward to seeing the latest effort from Haneke!

Here comes one more chance to watch the great Anton Yelchin in one of his last film roles before his untimely death. It doesn't hurt that the film is set in one of the world's most romantic and beautiful cities. I'm really looking forward to seeing "Porto."

Natalie Portman In Alex Garland's sci-fi thriller ANNIHILATION

The filmmaker responsible for "Ex Machina" (Alex Garland) seems to be upping his game with his own adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer's novel. Natalie Portman is due for a comeback. Welcome to a world where "the rules of nature do not apply."

Color me curious.

LADY BIRD — Yet Another Gasp of Mumblecore

Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird," starring Saoirse Ronan (pronounced Ser-Sha, as in Sersha, Sersha, Sersha) finds Gerwig going all semi-autobiographical mumblecore, as if that Godforsaken genre weren't already long dead gone. Let's just say this looks to be an ideal movie for entitled white girls to get all touchy feely over while hiding in blind spots to the rest of society. Yes, yes, yes, here is yet another me, me, me movie that will probably be every bit annoying as "Tiny Furniture." Blech. I feel dirty for even having watched the trailer. Search it out if you must in the upcoming New York Film Festival —September 28 through October 15.
