Duwayne’s Pick: Hotel Artemis! I was able to see an early screening of this and I loved it! I will definitely be going back this weekend for a double maybe triple dose of it. Good story and great characters especially Jodie Foster. It has a nice mix of action, humor, and badassness that culminates into a nice finale.

Tim’s Pick: Hotel Artemis! For the reasons I see that Duwayne put down.
