At Redbox: Richard Jewell
Richard Jewell is a compelling story about a man who went from hero to villain overnight, and the effect that can have on your life and beliefs.  It has a strong cast, a commitment to realism, and absolutely stellar performances by the main characters.  For more information, check out our review!

Streaming (Netflix): The Platform
The Platform delivers important messages about social responsibility in a new way, with a grim and interesting setting, fantastic characters, and a bizarre but effective premise.  For more information, check out our review!

Streaming (HBO): Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw
Although it doesn't have the Fast & Furious "family," this film does still attempt to keep the family spirit of the main series alive.  Hobbs and Shaw is the fast summer movie that we expected, so jump into an exotic car, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.  For more information, check out our review!

Streaming (VUDU Free With Ads): The Founder
Michael Keaton's biographically based drama gives you a look at the founder of the world's most famous food chain and the ruthless and inspiring way he revolutionized both food and business.  The movie is not a happy meal, but the story of the Golden Arch's founder will give you a new perspective on the famous brand.

Streaming (Showtime): Green Book
If you are looking for something a little more wholesome in this quarantine weekend, Green Book has strong performances by Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, good lessons to be learned from this surprising friendship, and an interesting, if safe, take on traveling to the south at a time when a guide had to be published to tell black travelers what establishments were safe to go to.
