Movie Lounge – August 10

The week’s 10 best-sounding movies, ranked by how much they might be worth seeing. The Rhode Island International Film Festival website is still driving me nuts but there are a couple of decent bets if you don’t mind doing your own research. (Seriously how hard it is to put trailers on a website.) One additional note, only because I mentioned it last week: Black Panther has finally wrapped up an epic six-month run.
