Weekly Recap: Best of the Year So Far, Jaws, Old Guard & More!

Happy Fourth of July! It may be a different kind of year, but Happy Fourth, regardless. And for this week in releases, I only have one new review, an early one for Netflix's The Old Guard (Good!), but I also have a top ten for the best films of the year so far. This week's recap also features a list of the recent releases made available to stream, rent, or own digitally. Additionally, there are a couple of solid podcasts we put together, including our commentary track for Jaws, in honor of its 45th anniversary, as well as our "Way to Early Academy Awards." Finally, there are my various essays lists, and new trailers to dig into as well. Enjoy, stay safe out there, and thanks for reading!
