Beauty and the Beast is a big, splashy remake as only Disney can do them — which is to say yearly, because after The Jungle Book and now this film’s great success, Disney won’t ever stop.
Kong: Skull Island is great fun, elevating a predictable plot and flat characters with exciting action and entertaining performances.
Logan is a film that hits as hard as it does because of all that has come before it, bidding a fond farewell to one of comic book cinema’s best characters.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story does something no Star Wars film has ever done before – truly and accurately portray the horrors of war.
