Quick Take: JOHN WICK CHAPTER 4
Salvaged by a wicked sense of humor and imagination that really comes through in long, wild, meticulously choreographed action sequences.
Quick Take: 65
Hampered by so-so visual effects and storytelling.
Quick Take: BOSTON STRANGLER
A good cast in a dark, gloomy but fairly persuasive film that tries to do justice to the victims.
Quick Take: SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS
Entertaining in fits and starts, not least thanks to its main cast, but the intended emotional payoff near the end feels half-hearted and predictable.
Quick Take: SCREAM VI
The final revelation of the killer’s identity is about as dumb as in previous entries… but there are many thrills leading up to it and the cast is game.
Quick Take: EXODUS
The director’s experiences as a child during his escape to Sweden from Beirut informs this gripping drama.
Review: THE LION IN WINTER
A diabolically entertaining family game, where insults dipped in acid are traded.
Quick Take: WE HAVE A GHOST
A passable adventure, but goes on much too long.
