John Wick: Chapter 4, A Good Person, The Lost King, Return to Seoul
A Good Person ** The earnestness with which writer/director Zach Braff serves up his story—and the great actors he has on board—are almost enough to cover over how much of a narrative and thematic mess it is. But not quite. Florence Pugh stars as Allison, a young woman looking at a happy future with her fiancé Nathan (Chinaza Uche), until her distracted driving results in the death of Nathan’s sister and brother-in-law.

Film Reviews: New Releases for March 17

Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, Boston Strangler, Inside, Blueback and more
Blueback **1/2 Writer/director Robert Connolly’s drama is such a thoughtful, low-key way of approaching the idea of budding environmentalism that it’s a shame it’s not at least a little bit more dramatically engaging. Mia Wasikowska plays marine biologist Abby Jackson, who’s called away from her research to her home on the coast of Australia when she learns that her mother has had a stroke, inspiring flashback recollections of free-diving with mom (Radha Mitchell) as a child (Ariel Donoghue) and teenager (Ilsa Fogg), and befriending a huge blue grouper she names Blueback.

Film Reviews: New Releases for March 10

Scream VI, 65, The Quiet Girl, The Magic Flute and more
65 **1/2 It’s kind of impressive how a movie this dumb and overly earnest can be this close to also being good. The concept alone is silliness on an epic level: Interstellar pilot Mills (Adam Driver), a native of a distant technologically-advanced planet, crash-lands on our earth in the Cretaceous era, and has to dodge dinosaurs on the way to wreckage that contains an intact escape pod.

Theater Review: Pioneer Theatre Company's PUTTING IT TOGETHER

Sondheim musical revue delivers some show-stoppers, and a reminder of the greatness of his full musicals
There’s something both fitting and ironic about making “Putting It Together” the title song for a musical revue of Stephen Sondheim songs.

Film Reviews: New Releases for March 3

Creed III, Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, Children of the Corn and more
Children of the Corn *1/2 In principle, there’s nothing wrong with a new angle on Stephen King’s 1977 short story that shifts the religious fervor of kids in a small Nebraska town to an existential rage over the way adults have failed them. Writer/director Kurt Wimmer simply fails to deliver on that premise in almost every possible way.
