“Papillon,” from director Michael Noer and starring Charlie Hunnam and Rami Malek, is a meticulous and heartfelt ode to the remarkable true life of its title character. It’s also been done before, and doesn’t quite measure up to the previous effort.
“BlacKkKlansman,” Spike Lee’s latest joint, is certainly not subtle about making its point. What it is, though, is compelling, as both a period film and a scathing indictment of extremism in modern America’s discussion of race.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp” delivers solid Marvel-style entertainment, thanks to its talented cast and inventive action. The fast paced storytelling, the humor, the in-jokes, they’re all here, and most of them work.
