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.

Set to be released on Friday, June 21, "Toy Story 4" already has a Tomatometer Score of 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Turns out we did."

With a Tomatometer Score of 94 percent and an Audience Score of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Avengers: Endgame" has become a favorite since its release on April 26. The Observer's Oliver Jones said, "What you will be getting when you walk into an inevitably overstuffed movie theater is something singular that reflects our age in a way that none of the MCU films that preceded it have-indeed, very few Hollywood spectacles ever have," and the San Diego Reader's Matthew Lickona noted, "The MCU will go on and on, but this chapter – and the American pragmatism vs. American ideals bromance that drove it – have well and truly come to their 'Excelsior! Nuff said! moment."

A shy but ambitious film student falls into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship with a charismatic but untrustworthy older man.
Set to be released on Friday, Aug. 30, "The Souvenir" already has a Tomatometer Score of 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Toronto Star's Peter Howell said, "Swinton Byrne and (Tom) Burke make for one of the year's most intriguing screen couples, although this is a romance based on anxiety, narcissism and opportunism rather than anything resembling genuine affection," while Barry Hertz of the Globe and Mail stated, "This is not a movie that lets life simply play out as it is or was – it is instead a collection of memories, some sharp as shards but others smoothed down."
It's screening at Alamo Drafthouse Midtown (3201 Farnam St.) through Wednesday, June 26. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
