“CAPTAIN MARVEL” (PG-13) 2.5 STARS

This original tale of Captain Marvel will please those who like a slow trek through how she became a superhero, while those who want more flash and dash may only be happy in the final 20 minutes. Either way, Brie Larson is a great pick for the role. Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief suggestive language. 124 min. [MC, PV]



“DUMBO” (PG) 1.75 STARS

Dark, dull and joyless, this supposed children’s movie is yet another Tim Burton extravaganza to arrive without fun or flair. Rated PG for peril/action, some thematic elements, and brief mild language. 112 min. [MC, PV]

“US” (R) 3 STARS

Jordan Peele—known until recently as an actor and comedian—is rapidly proving himself to be a director who can make crazy feel real on screen. That started with “Get Out,” and continues in a much larger way with “Us,” a full-fledged horror film that starts scaring early and never lets up. Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language and suggestive material. 116 min. [PV]
