'Monster' gets a belated Netflix showcase, but the cast is better than the movie

"Monster" represents a minor coup for Netflix, not as much due to the movie's merits as who's in it. More than three years after its festival run in 2018, the film arrives with a timely theme and a cast whose stock has soared in the intervening time -- including Kelvin Harrison Jr., Jharrel Jerome and John David Washington -- making this one for the time capsule if nothing else.

'Here Today' pairs Billy Crystal and Tiffany Haddish in a gone-tomorrow comedy

In the spirit of Billy Crystal's last directing effort for the baseball movie "61*," "Here Today" serves up slow pitches for Crystal and Tiffany Haddish to knock out of the park, delivering another comedic odd couple with carefully massaged heart. As thin star showcases go, it's an occasionally effective bit of comfort food, arriving as theaters reopen and served with a generous side of schmaltz.

For a series about superheroes, "Jupiter's Legacy" moves in what feels like slow motion. The result is a Netflix drama that's impressive in its scope -- adding to the growing roster of dark comic-book tales -- but frustrating in its sluggish pacing, oscillating between twin timelines over the course of its eight initial episodes.

'Wrath of Man' reunites Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie in a grim revenge thriller

Reunited, and it feels so painful, as Jason Statham, co-writer/director Guy Ritchie and an old-fashioned revenge plot add up to "Wrath of Man," a serviceable, ultraviolent thriller if you can weather the exceptionally bad tough guy dialogue. Statham doesn't speak in much of it, in a movie that operates under the maxim leave no bullet unfired.

"The Water Man" arrives with the coveted Oprah Winfrey seal of approval, marking the directing debut of David Oyelowo, who also co-stars.
