Movies. They’re cool, dark, affordable and have snacks. Some sneaky good summer flicks worth checking out: The Green Knight, Roadrunner: A Film about Anthony Bourdain, Stillwater, The Courier, The Suicide Squad and new this weekend, Free Guy and the Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect. Who said summer is nothing but a bunch of super hero movies?
