JOKER: Rebel Without Applause

There’s a new “King of the World” box-office-wise. Todd Phillips’ dark-but-empathetic take on the infamous Agent of Chaos is the rare blockbuster that actually lives up to the hype.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

EQuentin Tarantino just may be a lover and a dancer. His latest opus is an ode to the L.A. of his youth, lovingly awash in vibe and local detail, and yet he manages to skirt around some of its thornier subjects. If the devil is in the details, who's minding the plot? Your good doctors break it all down: QT, Leo, Brad, Margot, Manson, and, yes, the Bruce Lee scene. Now THIS is a star-studded 'cast...

INCREDIBLES 2: The I’s Have It

Hey kids, remember 14 years ago? Well, that feeling is back: Brad Bird returns with the continued adventures of our favorite superfamily, as smart and sharp as ever, with new powers, new teammates, and more Edna.

INCREDIBLES 2: The I’s Have It

HEREDITARY: Strained Relations

After the death of a grand-matriarch, a family is besieged by some downright creepy and uniquely disturbing circumstances. Held together by the almost savage commitment by a stellar Toni Collette as the grieving mom who uncovers some deep family secrets, this bold debut from writer-director Ari Aster is masterfully crafted in some ways, startlingly fresh in others, and just plain infuriating at times. Find out which spells worked on the Doctors and which ones vanished into thin air...

SOLO: No Galaxy for Old Men

A long time ago… A character burst on the screen who reignited the swashbuckleage of Errol Flynn with the rugged charm of the handsome carpenter next door. *And* he flew a spaceship… Forty years later, we get an attempt to portray his origins, as only Ron Howard and the Magic of Disney can. Worthy predecessor or lost opportunity? The Doctors have a strong feeling about this…

A QUIET PLACE: In Case No One Can Hear You Scream

A remote family finds themselves tiptoeing around creatures waiting to pounce at the drop of a dime. With A Quiet Place, John Krasinski accomplished what every director today dreams of: getting an audience to STFU for a while. But the central story speaks volumes – an allegory for our times, or does it just look smarter than it… uh, sounds? Check your stethoscopes at the door, for your doctors’ diagnosis is loud and clear…

BLACK PANTHER: Purple Reign

EWhat can be said by now that hasn’t already been said about Ryan Coogler’s FUBU superhero epic that continues a long history of…absolutely nothing else like it. But it takes more than a daily dose of vibranium for maladies to escape the forensic eyes of the Doctors. Put this tiger in your tank:
