When Beauty and the Beast hits its rhythms, it really soars. However, when Beauty and the Beast missteps, the weight of the expectations created by the movie's spectacular predecessors can be felt.
Nocturnal Animals is a poetic but brutal blending of the crime, noir, and thriller genres, which Tom Ford controls masterfully while getting mesmeric performances out of his esteemed cast.
Smug, condescending, and completely without incident, The Circle is the reason why people hate Hollywood.
While the sequel doesn't pack the full punch of the original, it's a wonderful, beautiful follow-up that is richly dense in detail and features a parade of thrilling and fun surprises.
If you need a quick fix of relatively calm animal cuteness, Born In China should serve as a nice breather before blockbuster season cranks things up.
Loud, brash, and rollicking, Free Fire has enough gun blasts and violence to entertain, but ultimately lacks the requisite surprises or savvy to be anything more than frivolous.
