Phoenix Secret (This Week’s Movies)


Jessica Chastain, Sophie Turner: Dark Phoenix (Twentieth Century Fox)

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald, and etc.

Dark Phoenix. “There’s something almost heroic about the way writer-director Simon Kinberg manages to turn every scene into a showdown of bad dialogue.”

The Secret Life of Pets 2. “Ambles along in pleasant fashion, blending wry jokes with slapstick, and relying on clever but basic animation style.”
