Mortal Queen-Verse (This Week’s Movies)

Saoirse Ronan: Mary Queen of Scots (Liam Daniel/Focus Features)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.

Mary Queen of Scots. “As anything other than an actors’ showcase, this Mary has a tendency to plod along.”

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. “If somehow those jokes could have been squeezed into a 90-minute package instead of a 117-minute feature, maybe Spider-Verse would have more zip.”

Mortal Engines. “There’s a lot to look at here, but not much to think about. The story beats are so broad and the characters so bland that this movie wears you out well before the big finish, despite the quirky touches.”

For Scarecrow Video’s blog, I contribute a Seasoned Ticket entry that includes something on Clint Eastwood (alas, I haven’t seen The Mule yet, not screened locally for critics) and Sondra Locke. Read it here.
