Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
Rated R for some graphic nudity, language throughout, sexual content and drug use
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 77% (Certified Fresh)
Available on DVD and Blu-ray
While Lonely Island is a popular entity on SNL, Universal created zero buzz around this comedy gem before suddenly dumping it in a few theaters over the summer. But this mocumentary, about a breakout pop star (Andy Samberg) who can’t keep his success alive on his second album, is pure comedy gold. The songs from Lonely Island are consistently funny and at 86 minutes, the joke doesn’t have the time to get stale. I laughed so hard I had to watch it again the next day in order to catch what I missed the first time. It is a very hard R so be careful about having the kids around or you may hear some catchy songs coming out of their mouths that could find them in the Breakfast Club. A

Captain America: Civil War
Rated PG-13 for extended sequences of violence, action and mayhem
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 90% (Certified Fresh)
Available on DVD, Blu-ray,and Blu-ray 3D
This third installment of Captain America is arguably the best yet and really should be considered an all-out Avengers film. As the Avengers take sides due to a United Nations mandate that they have accountability for their actions, a new foe sneaks in to take advantage of the split. It’s a fun super hero romp with lots of suits to excite lots of fans. The plot is strong, the action exciting and while a bit long at 147 minutes, it is a fully engaging piece of entertainment. A-

The Conjuring 2
Rated R for terror and horror violence
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 80% (Certified Fresh)
Available on DVD and Blu-ray
From the stories of real-life demon hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren, comes this sequel to the 2013 hit where the couple head this time to London to take on what Ed considers in his book, The Demonologist, to be their most frightening encounter of their career as they attempt to excise a demon-possessed little girl. What makes this one so scary is its authenticity. To make your experience that much more terrorizing they actually play the real recordings during the closing credits to give you extra special nightmares. Good stuff for the horror fans. A-
