With a story centering on the multiverse and time travel and a host of other pseudo-science mumbo jumbo, it embraces the silliness at the core of its premise and plays as an out-and-out sci-fi comedy.

"Cold Pursuit"

The first fifteen minutes of “Cold Pursuit” hit all the clichés we’d expect. Neeson steps out into the night, kills people, growls at people and kills people after growling at them.

The world can be unfeeling and cruel, but “The Kid Who Would Be King” explains to its young audience that they don’t have to be, and in its sincerity, it may remind adults of the same thing.

It’s strange to say, especially as someone usually hasty to criticize movies for overstaying their welcome, but if “The Hidden World” was even just five to ten minutes longer, it would allow for more development for Hiccup and his struggle without sacrificing any of the time we spend with Toothless and the Light Fury. It’s the conclusion of a critically acclaimed trilogy, DreamWorks! Treat yourself!

“A Dog’s Way Home” plays less like a movie than it does a series of stitched together YouTube videos, as if an aspiring editor with a lot of time on their hands took to the internet, cut together the most endearing stock footage of dogs they could find and somehow convinced Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) to do a voiceover.

It’s not a bad movie. It’s not a good movie. It’s a well-acted but deeply uninspired movie which tries for social relevance and falls flat on its face.

More than any of these live-action “Transformers” films, “Bumblebee” has a heart.

Rose Byrne in 'Instant Family'

“Instant Family” is a film with a goal, gooey edges and all; it’s a rousing, funny and deeply moving success.

"Robin Hood"

This Robin Hood is basically Batman, and that might have been cool if everything about the film didn’t speak to a complete disinterest in telling the story at hand.
