I am so glad that Ocean’s 8 is finally coming out. I have wanted to see it since I saw the first trailer, but there have been so many trailers for it that I’m afraid I have seen the entire movie already. I want to watch and enjoy it since I love heist movies. Hereditary looks incredibly scary and has the best reviews out of all the summer movies opening this week. The cast for Hotel Artemis is really interesting, especially Sterling K. Brown, Jodie Foster, and Dave Bautista, but it seems like it doesn’t have much of a plot beyond its concept. Hearts Beat Loud looks like a super sweet coming-of-age story with a teenage girl and Nick Offerman as her dad.
There are also some interesting documentaries coming out today. Be ready to cry while watching the story of Mr. Rogers in Won’t You Be My Neighbor? I don’t know anything about either chef Alain Ducasse or designer Vivienne Westwood, but the two documentaries about them (The Quest of Alain Ducasse and Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist) make them seem like super interesting people.
Finally, some smaller limited-release movies are Nancy starring Steve Buscemi, Zoo is a family-friendly movie about animals, and Bernard and Huey seems to be another one suffering from an interesting cast, but possibly not much of a plot.
