  1. I didn’t see any of these movies. June has been such a bust for film, with the exception of Netflix/Amazon/HBO releases. Caught When They See Us and Always Be My Maybe, both were excellent!

  2. I saw LATE NIGHT here in NY and it was a delight! I think I found it funnier than you guys, but I totally agree it would have worked much better as a show. Only problem with that is that Emma Thompson probably wouldn’t have done it.
