Films like Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 have soared at the box office just ahead of the summer movie season, but there are still a lot of films to come both big and small.

Indie flicks like "Hereditary" and "A Quiet Place" are sure to satisfy horror fans, while blockbusters Incredibles 2 and Mission: Impossible - Fallout will likely resonate with larger audiences.

KPBS arts reporter and film critic Beth Accomando and Yazdi Pithavala, a film reviewer from Moviewallas, share their top recommendations and what movies to avoid this summer Tuesday on Midday Edition.
