Movie Reviews: New Releases for July 30

Jungle Cruise, The Green Knight, Stillwater and more
The Green Knight *** In his adaptation of the Middle English tale of Arthurian legend, writer/director David Lowery noodles around at the edges but ultimately captures the text’s focus on what really constitutes a life of honor. On a Christmas day at Camelot, a mysterious knight (Ralph Ineson) arrives to challenge one of the knights of King Arthur (Sean Harris) to a dangerous game—one that is accepted by Arthur’s young nephew Gawain (Dev Patel), beginning an epic journey.

Old, Joe Bell, Val, Settlers and more
Joe Bell *** Just laying this out on the table: Given Mark Wahlberg’s documented history as a young man, it’s not easy accepting him in the role of a spokesperson against bigoted violence. Then again, regret over narrow-mindedness is baked into director Reinaldo Marcus Green’s fact-based story of Joe Bell (Wahlberg), a father in small-town Oregon who embarks on a cross-country “walk for change” in honor of his 15-year-old son Jadin (Reid Miller), who was bullied for being gay.

The Tomorrow War, Boss Baby: Family Business, No Sudden Move and more
The Boss Baby: Family Business **1/2 The original 2017 Boss Baby got away with mimicking Toy Story’s allegory for sibling rivalry through sheer relentless energy and visual imagination; this sequel seems to double down on the formula, with diminishing returns. Our imaginative hero Tim Templeton is now an adult (James Marsden) and a father himself with two daughters, and an estranged relationship with his younger, former Boss Baby/now wealthy businessman brother Ted (Alec Baldwin).

Movie Reviews: New Releases for June 25

F9, Werewolves Within, Asia, Kenny Scharf: When Worlds Collide
Asia *** A premise that might have played as fundamentally melodramatic instead gives its emotion some jagged edges in writer/director Ruthy Pribar’s Israeli drama. Asia (Alena Yiv), a 35-year-old single-mother working as a nurse in Jerusalem, has a somewhat typical head-butting relationship with her teenage daughter, Vika (Shira Haas)—until Vika’s ALS-like degenerative neuromuscular condition begins to progress rapidly, changing the dynamic of their interactions.
