‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’

Starring: Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell

Why do all the Marvel Comics super guys and gals seem to be having a much better time than this dreary bunch assembled to for this DC Comics latest “save the world” episode? The recent “Thor” installment proved that it was possible to ward of the evil forces of the universe and still have fun doing it.

Cast of Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

‘Murder on the Orient Express’

Starring: Kenneth Branaugh, Michelle Pfeiffer

Directed by: Kenneth Branaugh

Rated: PG-13

Unfair as it may be, there will be comparisons between this version of the Agatha Christie novel and the 1974 adaptation that was an immensely satisfying piece of entertainment. With a distance of over 30 years between the two films, I have no quibble with the idea of a redo. But the actual redo is a different story — literally.

The cast of A Bad Mom's Christmas

‘A Bad Moms Christmas’

Starring: Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn

Directed by: John Lucas and Scott Moore

Rated: R

It’s not unusual to rush out a sequel after a hit movie like “Bad Moms.” It just struck a chord with its target audience of females, so it makes sense to go for a repeat. The three stars — Mila Kunis, Kristin Bell and Kathryn Hahn — return, and in a clever twist, this movie brings their mothers into the picture, which explains a lot about each of them.
