Although it qualifies as solid entertainment for a 2019 family with its technically superior look, the film struggles mightily to find the magic that came so easily to its predecessor.

Run Time: 1:28
U.S. Release Date: 2019-07-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Alexandre Aja
Cast: Kaya Scodelario, Barry Pepper

An old-fashioned B-grade monster movie made with 2019 technology.

The movie doesn’t do anything well and it’s an open question why anyone would pay money to see a reworking of a premise that offers so little.

A much different breed of horror than one typically finds in multiplexes, trading in jump scares for something longer and lingering.

Run Time: 2:00
U.S. Release Date: 2019-06-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Joe Talbot
Cast: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Jamal Trulove

Even though Talbot opts for a quasi-humorous approach to the subject matter, the comedic edge can’t hide an underlying sadness about what this all means.

With a dose of comedy, a dash of romance, and some CGI-heavy battles, the film accomplishes what it needs to do.

Run Time: 1:54
U.S. Release Date: 2019-06-29
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Claire McCarthy
Cast: Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, Tom Felton, Dominic Mafham, Devon Terrell

There wasn’t much to Hamlet’s Ophelia and there’s not a lot more to this production’s version of her.

Run Time: 1:56
U.S. Release Date: 2019-06-28
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Romantic/Fantasy
Director: Danny Boyle
Cast: Himesh Patel, Lily James, Joel Fry, Ed Sheeran, Kate McKinnon, Meera Syal, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Alexander Arnold

Weaknesses aside, it’s a feel-good experience with more to recommend it than the obligatory nostalgia trip associated with half-century old songs.
