Summer Movies: Opening June 9, 2017

I’m sad that The Mummy is not getting good reviews since I do love me a good Tom Cruise action flick. It Comes at Night is not a straight up horror movie, but one that scares you by what you can’t see. Megan Leavy might veer on the sappy side since it does involve a war dog, but it still has decent reviews. Beatriz at Dinner seems like it would be really good but also very awkward to watch. My Cousin Rachel looks predictable, but creepy enough that I want to check it out. The Hero looks like a good character flick with an interesting cast.
