I am salty that The Florida Project hasn't shown anywhere on Long Island that I frequent. I could watch the screener but I really want to wait for it on the big screen.

Insidious IV (Lynn Shaye) - Trash. I liked the first scene and the last. Really nothing in between.

Saw Bleed for This, good movie, but disappointed with how badly historically inaccurate it was.

Call Me By Your Name (Timothee Chalamet/Armie Hammer) - Powerful love story between a gay teen who has a professor for a father and the older college student who spends the summer with the teen's family in Italy. If you're homophobic, this isn't the movie for you, but I found the love and romance universal and relatable. Timothee's performance is every bit as good as most reviews suggest, I also really liked the music and scenery. This will without question make my top 10, which I'll be able to post once I see another movie or two.

The Commuter - I found it to be a perfectly serviceable movie, although largely unbelievable, of course. There are several set pieces that stand out but this will ultimately turn out to be a forgotten Liam Neeson film, but a fun-ish popcorn film.
