In Theaters



Pro tip: do not name your movie ‘Unforgettable’. People, you’re making this much too easy.

The Lost City of Z

James Gray’s adaptation of British explorer Percival Fawcett’s

remarkable true story is almost as romantic as it gets...

Going in Style

This remake is kind of like the Sweet N Low of old guy caper movies:

not exactly the real thing, but sweet enough to get the job done...

Beauty and the Beast

This Beauty’s got such great bone structure, she’s

pretty great even with a new blemish or two...

Kong: Skull Island

There are monsters among us. And if what you’re looking for is eye popping, easily

digestible escapism, you might be perfectly fine with these oh so cinematic hairy beasts...


Well, they are sure sending Wolverine out in style. And a big, oozing blaze of glory.

Get Out

I love this movie. Sure, I had a great time watching it, Jordan Peele’s mash up of comic horror and social satire...

As You Are

Miles Joris Peyrafitte makes an auspicious filmmaking

debut with this gritty and compelling coming of ager...

The Space Between Us

It’s been a long time since I have seen a movie this

confounding. What in the hell is happening here?

A Dog’s Purpose

Adorable puppies, wholesome messages, no swear words. Oh, and dogs dying. But they come back!

You’ll probably know from those words alone if this one is for you. Or not...


We may catch the glint of a wanna-be grand scheme here,

but this one turns out to be, sadly, only gold-plated...


Maybe it’s not saying much to note this is M. Night Shyamalan’s best film in years; what

really seals the hey-this-is-good deal here is James McAvoy, who elevates this horror handily...

The Founder

Talk about auspicious timing.

Hidden Figures

This gloriously entertaining slice of American history will make you want to

stand up and cheer. In many ways, it is just the movie we need right now...

Why Him?

Why Him? Why this?

Patriots Day

This third Wahlberg/Berg salute to American heroes is as

purposeful, effective and unnerving as it should be.

La La Land

More than just a thoroughly modern musical, Damien

Chazelle’s love story leaves us walking, well, dancing on air...


Pablo Larrain taps into a challenging and intriguing

perspective on the traditional White House bio-pic..


This sentimental romance may not break your

heart, but it sure is very easy on the eye...

Miss Sloane

Jessica Chastain’s ferocious star turn is the fascinating and stabilizing

factor in this promising, but ultimately wobbly political thriller...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

This eye-popper gets the new franchise

off to a magical enough start...

Manchester By The Sea

This movie is a miracle: a stunningly intimate masterwork

that wrenches, but still leaves the heart brimming...


Elegant and ambitious, this sci-fi mystery is designed to take

on life’s biggest questions in the most intimate way...

Dr. Strange

While very much an origins flick, this ambitious kickoff is

also, happily, a movie that wows while it makes us wonder...


Rarely has a film of such historical importance felt so vivid and relatable.

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Desperate for a good laugh? This, unfortunately, isn’t it.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Explosions, guns and oh yeah, Cobie Smulders in a bra.


This achingly beautiful coming of ager

leaves its mark on both heart and soul...

The Accountant

Yes, I pretty much followed along with the mess-with-the numbers

story of this accountant, a math genius with Asperger’s Syndrome...

The Girl on the Train

Emily Blunt’s outstanding lead performance, which is

so good, you almost think she’s in another movie...

Deep Water Horizon

Peter Berg’s rugged version of the worst environmental disaster in

American history is very effective. So why did I feel so guilty enjoying it?

Bridget Jones’s Baby

This is the movie equivalent of meeting an old

friend you haven’t seen in a long time for brunch...


You used to be able to count on Oliver Stone for a good shot or two of cinematic adrenaline.


Clint Eastwood’s heart pounding recreation of the Miracle on the Hudson

is only one of the rewards of this earnest, slyly emotional biography...

War Dogs

This buddy/action/adventure/comedy/based on true story movie tells aninteresting

enough tale. But, oh, if it only had the guts of its no-good heroes...

Sausage Party

This “secret life of groceries”, like so many other Seth Rogen movies, is a

congenial mess of the outrageously funny and the bong-induced lazy drags...

Hell or High Water

Not everything is what it seems in this deceptively simple story.

Florence Foster Jenkins

The fact that it is no surprise Meryl Streep delivers a virtuoso performance

here shouldn’t deny us the sheer joy of watching her do it...

Suicide Squad

Please let the record show I actually kind of dug the first 20

minutes of so. It was the rest of this movie that did me in...

Jason Bourne

When was the last time I was surprisingly engrossed

by so much incessant, full throttle action?


You can keep your 3D and blue screen. For my money, the

most exciting scene of the summer comes as Logan Lerman

and Tracy Letts let it rip in this Philip Roth adaptation...

Star Trek Beyond

Justin Lin’s take on the iconic series is not your father’s Star Trek...

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

This splashy update with Edina and Patsy is very

much your mother’s Ab Fab. And proud of it...

  Joanna began her career on the production staff of a local Boston television station. She then focused her energies towards radio and

began producing talk shows at WMEX-AM in Boston.

  After moving to New York, she found herself at WMCA-AM, where she served as executive producer to the legendary talk show personalities Barry Gray and Sally Jessy Raphael. She began hosting a one-minute movie review spot which, in turn, led the way to her own top-rated weekend call in-show, The Joanna Langfield Show from 1980-1983.

  When Joanna moved to WABC-AM and hosted The Joanna Langfield Show every Saturday night from 9:00pm to midnight, it quickly became the highest rated show in its time slot.

  From 1987-1989,  Joanna hosted Today's People on the ABC Radio network, which was fed daily to over 300 stations around the country. She also worked closely with WABC-TV as a regular on-air contributor.

   In 1989, Joanna decided to produce and syndicate her own radio reports. She formed her own radio production company, Joanna Langfield Entertainment Reports.

  Joanna is heard and seen domestically and internationally as one of the top authoritative commentators on the entertainment industry.
