Movie: Captain Marvel

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: The luminous heart of this film is Brie Larson whose performance is one of the best I've seen from a Marvel protagonist.

Movie: White Boy Rick

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: White Boy Rick tells an incredible true story that is solidly performed by a top-drawer cast, but fritters away much of its potential on a generic crime-thriller script that focuses far too often on the least interesting aspects of the story it is trying to tell.
