Weekly Recap: Yesterday, Annabelle Comes Home & More!

There are some options out there this week with Yesterday and Annabelle Comes Home. In addition to having fun with superheroes, monsters, and toys, you could also take your chances with a fantasy about The Beatles (or lack thereof) or another Conjuring-universe film. Both have their charms. I also have some early reviews for a couple of highly anticipated releases in blockbuster and horror crowds. And that's not all, enjoy some reviews for new films available at home, some new trailers, and other writing. I also have a new podcast focused on how successful Toy Story 4 was, so feel free to listen to that as well.

A lot of your favorite childhood toys are back this week. Woody, Buzz, Chucky... They're all here to play. Toy Story 4 has arrived and it shows just how consistently great this series has been. There's also Child's Play, which I was planning to write about but hated it so much I just don't care to. You'll also find my early review for Yesterday. At home, you have Us, one of the best films of the year, among other options out there, including my look at Criterion's release of the classic film Swing Time.
