This admittedly overlong, overstuffed outing is the most enjoyable Jurassic flick since Jurassic Park and for my money, it provided about the same amount of dopey retro fun as the Tom Cruise smash that most reviewers are turning cartwheels over. At least in this one, we know where they bad guys come from.

Lauded by the Austin Chronicle as "earnest, honest, accurate, and unrelenting," the award-winning British drama God's Own Country will be screened at the Figge Art Museum on June 19 as part of the Davenport venue's celebration of Gay Pride Month, this rural romance starring The Crown's Emmy winning Josh O'Connor praised by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a universal tale about giving yourself over to love, even when you seem hopelessly broken."

Concluding his pre-show announcements with “Enjoy the goopy madness!”, the FilmScene staffer then left us to do just that at Crimes of the Future, and he wasn't kidding – the movie was goopy madness, all right. I just wish I enjoyed it more. More pointedly, I wish its writer/director did.

Lauded by the Los Angeles Times for "its transporting sense of place, its striking visual pleasures and its credible and moving performances," the 2018 drama Rafiki enjoys a June 12 Figge Art Museum Screening as part of the Davenport venue's celebration of Gay Pride Month, this acclaimed romance noted for being the first Kenyan film to ever be screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

Our official welcome-back is a rather jolting reminder that time stops for no one – not even Tom Cruise. And had Top Gun: Maverick really embraced that fact, and had its star actually embraced his human fallibility, this corny, retrograde, occasionally quite-entertaining outing might've really been something.

A watershed moment in the history of LGBTQ rights will be explored in a June 3 Gay Pride Month event at the Rock Island Public Library's Main Branch, with the venue hosting a screening of the American Experience episode Stonewall Uprising: The Year That Changed Everything, a Peabody Award-winning work that the Philadelphia Inquirer deemed “an important documentary – and a passionate and compassionate reconstruction.”

Held in celebration of Gay Pride Month, a Film at the Figge screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague will be held at Davenport's Figge Art Museum on June 5, this riveting, powerful tale of AIDS activists a Peabody Award winner for Best Documentary and a work the New York Times praised for its “scorching electrical charge,” as well as its “rage, fear, fiery determination, and, finally, triumph.”

The experience of director Simon Curtis' Downton Abbey: A New Era is nothing if not exceedingly comfortable, even if there's little that's remotely New about it.

Damned if I didn't grin and giggle at Family Camp from the very start, and damned if I didn't get misty-eyed on a couple of occasions – though given the film's leanings, I should probably be saying “darned." I'll try to remember that if, or more hopefully when, we get a sequel.

Arriving in the midst of a franchise extender almost shockingly bereft of weirdness, one scene in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness did manage to completely surprise and tickle me.
