"Shortcomings" a witty, culturally specific anti-romantic comedy

"Retribution" by-the-numbers but watchable as Neeson Action Vehicles go

"The Dive" finds underwater tension without sharks

"birth/rebirth" an effectively upsetting, very well-acted, deeply fucked-up take on "Frankenstein"

"The Last Voyage of the Demeter" makes for a gnarly, old-fashioned monster movie with bite

"Dark Windows" makes for a competent but dull home-invasion slasher

"Red, White & Royal Blue" charms and swoons with likable, sexy leads

"Til Death Do Us Part" an interminable, sub-"Ready or Not"/"John Wick" knockoff

"Meg 2: The Trench" a bigger, dumber sequel that's surprisingly dull

"What Comes Around" is well-acted and provocative, then loses its nerve

"River Wild" is a good rendition of a great thriller
