It’s cheesy in the way many older films are cheesy, but the strong sense of atmosphere helps to redeem some of the dated elements.

Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temeura Morrison

Devoid of complex plotting, comprehensive world-building, and narrative twists, "Aquaman" seems strangely out-of-step with where the genre is going.

Does an excellent job assembling pieces and preparing viewers for the larger picture but disappoints in its ability to tell a stand-alone story.

The sense of optimism never fades and we’re left with images that are more about the enduring power of love than the oppressive force of injustice.

"Mary Poppins Returns" is an imperfect sequel but as a throw-away holiday film designed to provide a family viewing experience, it satisfies a need.

Run Time: 2:08
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-12
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Science Fiction/Adventure
Director: Christian Rivers

As shepherded by filmmakers with a penchant for visual storytelling, "Mortal Engines" is two hours well-spent.

Run Time: 1:21
U.S. Home Release Date: 2019-03-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Nicolas Pesce
Cast: Christopher Abbott, Mia Wasikowska, Laia Costa

The director’s macabre flourishes and garish visuals can’t completely camouflage the hollow space at the production’s core.

A fresh and breezy way to steer the superhero genre and a testimony to the main character’s appeal and versatility.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)

Has problems beyond its inability to stick the ending but that’s the one that ultimately sinks it.
