Rating: 3.5 out of 4

Running Time: 167 minutes

This film from Warner Bros. will be playing exclusively at theaters starting Friday, March 1.

The 1965 Frank Herbert science-fiction novel Dune has been a tricky one to adapt. There was a notable attempt to develop a movie that famously fell apart. And when an official film finally made it to screens in 1984, the results were visually striking but condensed and confusing.

That’s why many were pleasantly surprised by Dune: Part 1 from director/co-writer Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049). While it only told the first half of the novel, it was spectacularly mounted and the story benefited from the added...

This film from Focus Features is now playing exclusively at cinemas.

Since the beginning of their careers, the Coen Brothers have been making movies together and enjoying incredible success with titles like Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country for Old Men and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (among many other cinematic ventures). But over the past year or two, each has decided to tackle projects on their own. Ethan Coen helmed the Shakespeare adaptation The Tragedy of Macbeth a few years back, and now Joel is presenting a quirky comedy called Drive-Away Dolls, which he also co-wrote.

The tale follows Marian (Geraldine...

Running Time: 116 minutes

This film from Sony Pictures is currently playing in cinemas.

It may be due to oversaturation and a string of less-than-thrilling adventures, but superhero tales have been struggling recently. There has been an exception or two, but for the most part critics and audiences have begun turning up their noses at some of these titles. Madame Web introduces a new character existing in the city home to Spider-Man. Despite the concept’s potential, the film doesn’t land successfully and sadly marks a new low in the Marvel Universe.
