"Venom: Let There Be Carnage" not go-for-broke fun, just loud and slapped-together

"The Starling" gentle and benign but should've lost the bird

"Eyes of Tammy Faye" makes larger-than-life subject human, thanks to all-in Chastain

"Intrusion" nothing to write home about

"Dear Evan Hansen" a stirring translation from stage to screen

Weird "Prisoners of the Ghostland" on-brand for Biannual Strange Cage Movie™ but amounts to little

"Blue Bayou" moving, deeply personal, and beautifully acted

Mischievously sinister "Nightbooks" gateway horror that hits the sweet spot

"Everybody's Talking About Jamie" glossy but a vibrant and heartfelt joy
