Thanks for the picture of Zellwegger as Judy, Martine. This is gonna be a Debbie Downer movie concentrated on Garland's harrowing final downfall as well as her glory--it might turn out to be a turkey, but then again, I'm somewhat curious. It's so true Renee can't hope to sing even half as well. And the upcoming
"A Star is Born" starring Lady Gaga also sounds dodgy, but there again, I'm curious  to see how Gaga pulls it off. And again, she can't hope to hold a candle to Judy ! 
I'm excited "Pitch Perfect 3" is out on DVD now, and will rush to get it. That movie entertained me a lot, made me laugh, and I loved the music. The other Pitch Perfects did too. I found the first one to be a bit slight and light on plot, but the sequels I considered smashes. I want to get "The Only Living Boy in New York" as it's supposed to be out on DVD now. I didn't get to see it on the big screen. Has anyone seen that? It co-stars Jeff Bridges. The trailer made it appear to be  an entertaining and  sort of romantic comedy. Starring two mature hunks, Bridges and Pierce Brosnan, and the lively and beautiful Kate Beckinsale, and what looked like an American Eddie Redmayne (sort of), can't recall his name.

Summer 2018 movies I want to see, that might come to my local cinema: "The Book Club," out now, well-reviewed and called very entertaining with acting veterans Candace Bergen, Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenbergen  and Don Johnson and Andy Garcia
"Mama Mia: Here We Go Again" sequel to vastly successful "Mama Mia" musical with most of the same cast
"The Seagull" starring Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Elizabeth Moss, it won't play anywhere near me, though, probably
"The Spy Who Dumped Me," starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, because of those two and the title implies it's a comedy
"Hustle" with the very funny Rebel Wilson and with Anne Hathaway, a remake of Steve Martin's "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"
"Tully" starring Charlize Theron
"Oceans 8" that boasts an all-female cast of good actors: Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna (?). I didn't want to see this until I read it's set at a Met Gala, so it should offer a lot of visual spectacle
Toni Collette stars in a new horror film "Hereditary"--I'm a fan of her acting, so I may want to see this, but real life is scary enough in this country lately without seeking out more frights, I might pass on this one. Oh and Melissa McCarthy has a new one the end of summer about "raunchy puppets"--I saw her "Life of the Party" which provided more laughs and fun than Amy Shumer's "I Feel Pretty" which was somewhat disappointing, but it has its moments

Great list, Pinkie! I've just added some of them (and some others inspired by them) to my Netflix DVD list. Going to the movies is so expensive these days, but I miss the big screen experience. The next movie on my list is Table 19 - have you seen that? We saw a trailer of it on another movie and it looked funny.

Hi, Nicky, yes I saw "Table 19" and it's often funny and kind of heartwarming, a bit corny in parts but that's okay sometimes when you want to see something with no comic book characters or violence. Which I seldom or never want to view.  I agree you should see it. You'll enjoy it.
I'm going to see "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" tonight but kind of dread it, knowing the theme, checked it out of the library for free, on DVD

I do not really have a list. Every now and then I check out the offer and when it looks good I go to the movies. The offer is usually very restricted (in my humble opinion). I am always surprised by the number of movies there are for children.
