A long-delayed remake, Keanu Reeves doing weird science and The Young RBG Chronicles are the key offerings opening at local theaters this week.

Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston star in the aggressively feel-good based-on-a-true-story remake The Upside (pictured).

Eric D. Snider notes that Replicas isn't just the stupidest movie of 2019, it would have been the stupidest movie of 2017. If you like cute movies about cute dogs on cute journeys, you'll probably like A Dog's Way Home.

In this week's feature review, MaryAnn Johanson celebrates the healthy, mutually-supportive relationship at the core of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex.
