IT Chapter 2 (****): Just can’t finish

"IT is one of the highest points of horror cinema in this decade. If the second chapter doesn't reach classic status, there will be very few complaints. This is a combination of films that will be watched when kids the age of the Losers have overnight sleepovers for generations to come."

Shazam! (****1/2) – All hands on deck

"The concept of the film is relatively simple, Big with super powers. If we limit our expectations to this idea, we're in for a decent surprise. The characters are painted simply, but given a shade by a plot that seems predictable in hindsight. The pleasant part to the viewer is one enjoys the film enough to be swept into the story without necessarily considering that fact."

IT (*****) is a triumph of skill and understanding
