Quick Take: HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA: TRANSFORMANIA
Major liabilities include the hysterical tone, a lack of good jokes and a dumb story.
Quick Take: SCREAM
Staying so close to the first Scream guarantees no shocks or surprises for the audience.
Review: DON’T LOOK UP
The film moves fast and throws in amusing jabs.
Quick Take: DEXTER: NEW BLOOD
A well-staged comeback, with thrills and a satisfying finale.
Review: LA RONDE
Max Ophüls made his best movies in the 1950s, and it started with La Ronde.
Quick Take: THE TENDER BAR
Sweet and well-acted, but there isn’t a part of the story that will make you raise an eyebrow.
Quick Take: DOPESICK
Enlightening, infuriating and moving, with a terrific cast.
A charming portrait of a childhood in Kabul and a dark, bitterly cold one of life as a refugee.
