Ridley Scott’s “Alien Covenant” is a direct sequel to “Prometheus,” but don’t let that worry you. With “Prometheus,” Scott let a weak, confusing script run away with the whole thing, which itself was a prequel to his seminal sci-fi horror film “Alien.” With “Covenant,” he takes hold of the reins.

Director Scott Derrickson’s newest superhero flick, “Doctor Strange,” takes you down a mind-bending journey of action and illusion.

Movies do their best to make suburbia, the typical setting of the American dream, look mundane. But the suburbs, in America or anywhere else, can’t possibly be as mundane as “Keeping Up with the Joneses,” a Hollywood misfire of rare incompetence. I’d call it boilerplate, but that would be mi…
Much like the peculiar characters that populate it, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” doesn’t quite have a place in the world.

On the surface, “Kubo and the Two Strings” is a wonderful film.
From the director of “Old School” and “The Hangover” comes a moral parable about ... well, everything and nothing. It’s about war as a business, friendship, U.S. military intervention and ambition. The only thing it’s really about, though, is director/co-writer Todd Phillips’ desire to be Ma…
