The Big Sick
Starring: Kumail Nanjiani and Ray Romano
Rated R

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, “The Big Sick” tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian, who connects with grad student.

However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of him by his traditional Muslim parents.

When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.

“The Big Sick” is a wonderfully eloquent and touching love story that goes far beyond a traditional romantic comedy.

Do not pass this one by. It gets an A and is rated R.

Wonder Woman
Starring: Gal Gadot and Chris Pine
Rated PG-13

Gal Gadot is Princess Diana, who rescues a WWII pilot when he crashes in the waters of the coast of her hidden and mythical Island.

The downed pilot, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), tells her of the war that's being fought and Diana begins to realize her true purpose.

She leaves her island with Trevor to begin a battle against evil deeds.

“Wonder Woman” is a rip-roaring, action adventure and exactly what comic book films should be, exciting, fun, humorous and touching.

Gal Gadot is perfectly cast as the Amazon warrior. She is a fearsome fighter who never loses her femininity. It is a perfect balance she gracefully maintains. Also well-cast are the supporting characters including Chris Pine as the steadfast Steve Trevor. Pine delivers a terrific turn as Wonder Woman's guide into the world beyond her peaceful island.

“Wonder Woman” is a true summer blockbuster delivered with all the trimmings.

It gets an A and is rated PG-13.
