"WW84" lopsided, but a surprising, fun, and playful sequel

"Soul" a special, meaningful, sublimely human celebration of life by Pixar

"Promising Young Woman" a daring, scalpel-sharp date-rape indictment

"Shortcut" nicely atmospheric but filled with bland characters and a lot of wheel-spinning

"Fatale" not trashy enough or legitimate enough to be a hard-hitting potboiler

"Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" an electric actor's showcase of big yet controlled performances

"Greenland" a harrowing mid-budget survival/disaster flick

"Hunter Hunter" a brutally effective, chillingly visceral gut-punch
