Leap! (Animated adventure, PG, 1 hr. 29 min., 2017)

Fanning does wonderful voice work as an 11-year-old orphan dreaming of dancing ballet in 1880s Paris. Aside from one murderous misstep, this lovely and breezy animated adventure is thoroughly enchanting.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Action comedy, R, 1 hr. 51 min., 2017)

Through a series of contrived circumstances, a security specialist (Ryan Reynolds) is enlisted to transport an assassin (Samuel L. Jackson) to a war criminal’s trial. There’s nothing and no one to like in this blunt, ultraviolent, obnoxious empty vessel of a movie.

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (Sci-fi adventure, PG-13, 2 hrs. 17 min. 2017)

As special operatives in the 28th century, Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan are so wooden they could have floated near the Titanic long enough to save Rose AND Jack. This pop sci-fi epic is an excruciatingly repetitive, sparsely plotted, slow-witted, weird-for-the-sake-of-being-weird bomb.
