OUT NOW

Ready Player One: Spielberg delivers a popcorn thrill ride that improves on its source material by leaps and bounds. (David’s Review: 3/4)

A Quiet Place: John Krasinki’s foray into horror is a smart and thrilling exercise in restraint. (Rachel’s Review: 3/4)

Isle of Dogs: Wes Anderson’s Japan-set fable has some good tricks, but questions of cultural insensitivity linger. (David’s Review: 3/4)
