“Get Out” may well be the smartest horror film made in a long time. Writer/director Jordan Peele has put together is creepy thriller that alternately weaves in potent doses of comedy and satire. The film is about a young African-American man who visits his girlfriend’s mysterious family estate for the first time. It is a fresh and wickedly fun movie that deals its cards on so many levels. Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford star.

Matt Damon stars in this period action/fantasy film, about a group of European mercenaries who become involved in defending the legendary Great Wall against a horde of monsters. The film is hampered by a clunky plot, but that won’t stop you from enjoying this visually dazzling romp.

Hugh Jackman’s swan song as Wolverine (he has played the character in nine films) is perhaps his best. In this latest turn, Logan (aka Wolverine) is hiding out on the Mexican border with an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart). Mutants are nearly extinct – and Logan’s regenerative powers are fading. Enter a young mutant in need of help escaping evil forces – and you have one of the most brutal and satisfying action films of the year. Be wary – unlike many other superhero films, “Logan” is R-rated due to the violence – so it is not for kids.
