Toy Story 4
Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called "Forky" to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.
Boasting a Tomatometer Score of 98% and an Audience Score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 4" has been a must-watch since its release on June 21.

A young couple travels to Sweden to visit their friend’s rural hometown and attend its mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly descends into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
Set to be released on Wednesday, July 3, "Midsommar" already has a Tomatometer Score of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.
"This is, in other words, a less perfectly crafted nightmare than Aster's last one. But there's a deranged integrity to its sprawl, and to the filmmaker's willingness to embrace the darkest, most unsparing aspects of human desire," according to A.A. Dowd of the AV Club, while Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt said, "The skin-pricking pleasures of Midsommar aren't rational, they're instinctive: a thrilling, seasick freefall into the light."
It's pre-screening at Regal Sunset Station & IMAX (1301-A W. Sunset Road), Regal Fiesta Henderson (777 W. Lake Mead Parkway) and Cinedome 12 Henderson (851 S. Boulder Highway) through Wednesday, July 3. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
Annabelle Comes Home
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target — the Warrens' ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
Released on Wednesday, June 26, "Annabelle Comes Home" already has a Tomatometer Score of 69% on Rotten Tomatoes. San Francisco Chronicle's Mick LaSalle said, "A smart, controlled film, made with considerable integrity," while Eric Kohn of indieWire stated, "'Annabelle Comes Home' delivers on its title with the best 'Conjuring' spin-off so far, in large part because it has such modest aims."
