47 Meters Down
Starring: Mandy Moore and Matthew ModineTwo sisters vacationing in Mexico become trapped in a shark cage on the ocean floor. As their oxygen starts to run out and with great white sharks circling them, the sisters must find a way to get to the surface alive.
“47 Meters Down” starts off to be a solid thriller, giving the audience the hope that it will be worth the time and effort to see it. But then the film falls into a cliche-ridden movie where everyone begins doing stupid things.
Experienced divers jump into shark-infested waters, The girls leave and return to the shark cage like it was a revolving door and everyone seems not to know how to work a flashlight.
There are some jump-in-your-seat moments, but mostly the action is almost too quick to follow.
“47 Meters Down” is a likable shark movie, but it is not one that will be remembered for very long.
It gets a C and is rated PG-13.

Book of Henry
Starring: Naomi Watts and Jacob Trembly
In the film , a single mother discovers a scheme in her son's book to rescue a young girl from the hands of her abusive stepfather and sets out to execute the plan at any cost.
“The Book of Henry” is an overindulgent movie that lightly candy coats child abuse and pediatric terminal illness to the point of the ridiculous. The film is too preachy and weighty to be enjoyable and too maudlin to be forgivable.
The film gets a D and is rated PG-13.
Starring the voices of: Owen Wilson, Nathan Fillion and Armie Hammer
“Cars 3” wasn't expected to be much more than a way for the Disney franchise machine to sell more stuff. More toys and new characters to collect.
But the surprise is “Cars 3” really delivers a unique and heartfelt story which simply talks about finding the best in yourself, no matter what generation you represent.
There are so many wonderfully touching moments in the film where Lightning seems to be lost emotionally and has lost his passion for the sport. In those moments he remembers what his mentor, Doc Hudson, said to him and somehow finds the strength and courage to not only move on, but to do in in a very unexpected way.
“Cars 3” is about as good as a Disney sequel can get.
It gets an A and is rated PG.
