‘Lion King’ circles back

AP Film Writer Life moves in a circle, “The Lion King” tells us, and, increasingly, so does studio moviemaking. Close on the heels of “live-action” remakes of “Aladdin” and “Dumbo” and on the precipice of a reborn “The Little Mermaid,” “The Lion King” is back, too. ...

‘SpiderMan’ swings onto screens again with popular sequel

In joyous ‘Toy Story 4,’ the toys evolve too

AP Film Writer It’s futile to ask “why more” in the movie business, but it’s hard not to go in a little suspicious of a fourth “Toy Story.” The trilogy was so perfect. What more could we ask of Woody and Buzz? What more did we as an audience need? If we got another, would it live ...

Spencer lends a dose of humanity to campy revenge fantasy

Teenage brains. Alcohol. Driver’s licenses. Put them together and what you get, inevitably, are a whole bunch of bad decisions — in real life and in movies. It’s not a new lesson, but it’s the most coherent one in “Ma,” a middling high school horror revenge fantasy (if that’s a ...

Egerton glitters in glossy, conventional ‘Rocketman’

AP Film Writer Whatever you say about Dexter Fletcher’s glossy, glittering Elton John blinged-out biopic “Rocketman ,” a shiny sequin of a movie, it doesn’t lack for sparkle. Like its flamboyant subject, it’s a movie outfitted to the nines in dazzle and verve, even if it’s gotten ...

In ‘Parabellum,’ John Wick is on the run again

AP Film Writer Movies can be blessedly simple. As the first “John Wick” showed, all you really need is a car, a gun, a dead dog and Keanu Reeves. Who needs “kiss kiss” when you’ve got plenty of “bang bang”? Alas, nothing in today’s movie-land stays minor-key. Chad ...
