‘All of Us Strangers’ movie review:A beautiful ghost story you won’t soon forget
So long and thanks for all the fish jokes! Jason Momoa wraps up his run as the Aquaguy in an aggressively fine adventure sequel (and the last movie before DC reboots its movie universe). The Justice Leaguer teams with his previously villainous half-bro (Patrick Wilson) to fight an ancient evil. Hey, at least your little kids will dig it.

Millie Bobby Brown plays a young woman who, to help her family, gets married off to the prince of another kingdom. Just after the vows, she gets thrown down a chasm as a sacrifice to a vengeful talking dragon she has to outwit to survive.

Tyler Perry just gussied up the Lifetime thriller, y’all. Kelly Rowland plays a criminal defense attorney who ticks off her toxic family when she takes the case of – and is super-tempted by – a hunky artist (Trevante Rhodes) on trial for murdering his girlfriend. It’s a self-aware flick that really slathers on the sexy cheese, with a bonkers final act.

Tina Fey’s adaptation of the Broadway musical (itself based on the 2004 Lindsay Lohan teen comedy) turns out to be an unnecessary retread. That said, a few of the songs are catchy and Renee Rapp is a force as Regina George, the high-school queen bee who takes new kid Cady (Angourie Rice) into her popular girl clique.

One of the big victors at the Oscars, Yorgos Lanthimos’ dark comedy puts a fantastical, feminist spin on Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.” Best actress winner Emma Stone stars as the newly resurrected Bella Baxter, who matures from infantile woman-child to liberated Victorian-era prostitute with a heart of gold.

Forever the one that got ‘N Sync back together.

Timothée Chalamet plays beloved candyman Willy Wonka a bit too sweet and desperately in need of a dash of saltiness in the musically joyous origin tale.
