Jackie Chan gets deadly serious in The Foreigner

B

The Foreigner is a good, lean cut of meat—in other words, a typical Martin Campbell movie, expeditious and cold-blooded in its cross-cut, cloak-and-dagger plotting and violence. A bomb explodes into a cloud of black smoke and glass, leaving 12 dead bodies in London’s posh Knightsbridge boutique district and scrambling…

The story behind Winnie-The-Pooh gets mangled in the unbearable Goodbye Christopher Robin

C-

A.A. Milne, who was a second-rate playwright and poet, somehow created perfect, delightfully written children’s literature with his stories of Winnie-The-Pooh, Piglet, and the other denizens of the Hundred Acre Wood.

B+

Harold Meyerowitz, the unsung artist and shitty father Dustin Hoffman plays in The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected), is a fresh addition to Noah Baumbach’s ever-expanding gallery of neurotic, narcissistic New Yorkers.
