‘Power Rangers’ is more goofy than gritty
Back in the ’90s, you probably knew them as “Mighty Morphin,” and these days they take the pre-fix “Saban’s,” but we all know them best as simply the “Power Rangers.”

If ‘Life’ seems familiar, that’s because it is
Hey, “Life,” 1979 called. It wants its alien-invasion movie back.

‘T2 Trainspotting’ overdoses on nostalgia
If you’re of a certain age, Danny Boyle’s 1996 film “Trainspotting” was an earth-shattering, mind-expanding event. There was a Before “Trainspotting” and an After “Trainspotting,” which was accompanied by a sudden affinity for ambient electronica, Scottish accents and buzz cuts.

A more diverse ‘Beauty and the Beast’
Don’t judge a book by its cover.

‘Brimstone’ is effective, but overdone
If anyone didn’t already know how hard it was to be a woman on the American frontier, Dutch director Martin Koolhoven bludgeons the point home in the often gruelingly effective, if ultimately overdone, “Brimstone.”

'Kong' injects new life into classic
Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has said in interviews that he pitched “Kong: Skull Island” to Warner Bros. as “King Kong” meets “Apocalypse Now.” Working with an 84-year-old cinematic character, Vogt-Roberts has injected new life into the property by borrowing heavily from a Francis Ford Coppola New Hollywood classic that's now 38 years-old.

‘Table 19’ is disappointing and forgettable
The wedding-themed romantic comedy “Table 19” is like that beautifully wrapped gift you’ve had your eye on since the reception. But then, when you open it, you realize it’s just a blender.

Emotional ‘Logan’ cuts like a knife
Forget Batman vs. Superman or Captain America vs. Iron Man. In James Mangold’s moving tribute to X-Men’s Wolverine, “Logan,” it’s all Logan vs. Logan. He strips away the spandex, the posse and the chaos, distilling the story down to the essence of the man, Logan, also known as Wolverine, also known as James Howlett.

‘Rock Dog’ may have a ‘ruff’ going in theaters
In real estate, location is the key. With the release of movies, timing is a major factor.

'Get Out' is horror film with serious message about race
Genre films — horror, comedy, fantasy, Westerns — have always been great vessels for social commentary.

‘Fist Fight’ is rough, raunchy, rousing success
In “Fist Fight,” a rowdy, vulgar, surprisingly bloody action-comedy, human punching bags Charlie Day and Ice Cube are knocked across the screen by assorted wallops, fire extinguisher blasts, head butts, random billy clubs, hostile jailbirds, office rivals in the chaotic big city high school where they teach, unruly students, nincompoop co-workers and runaway horses.

‘The Great Wall’ defies expectations
The buzz on “The Great Wall” has been less excitement and more puzzlement and controversy.

‘Lego Batman’ is awesome
In the spring of 2016, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” darkened the doorway of nearly every multiplex across America. Almost exactly a year later comes the animated “The Lego Batman Movie,” set in a universe where everyone and everything is made of Legos. Guess which movie has more humanity, heart and sheer entertainment value?

‘John Wick 2’ is an extravagantly violent good time
Before you buy a ticket to see “John Wick: Chapter 2 ,” the improbably fun sequel to the implausibly good “John Wick,” you might want to ask yourself how much tolerance you have for gun shots to the head, because there are a lot of those in “John Wick: Chapter 2.”

‘I Am Not Your Negro’ is radical and of the moment
Somewhat deep into the searing and utterly necessary documentary “I Am Not Your Negro,” director Raoul Peck overlays audio from a 1960 U.S. Government film “The Land We Love,” in which the narrator extols the virtues of America and the freedoms afforded all citizens, with images from the 1965 Watts riots.

‘The Comedian’ is tragically unfunny
Tragically unfunny, “The Comedian” reminds us that not even great actors can knock one out of the park every time.
