It's the end of May and there is a lot to go over. This week's recap is based around some new films I've seen via digital and some screeners for titles now available on VOD. There's also a list of the recent releases made available to stream, rent, or own digitally. There are two notable new releases this week, a pretty good music-focused comedy-drama, The High Noteand the excellent indie sci-fi film, The Vast of Night. I have reviews for both. Additionally, there are several new podcasts, including thoughts on The Lovebirds, The Trip to Greece, and Zack Snyder's Justice League.
