Based on the classic Stephen King novel, “IT” is one of the scariest movies of the past few years. The story surrounds a group of bullied kids who come together to fight an ancient evil that threatens their town. While a horror film, “IT” really shines as a coming-of-age tale (mixed in with creepy clowns and gruesome killings). Be warned: don’t watch “IT” alone.

Available January 9. Rated PG-13.

The true story of a young, idealistic Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, as he battles to free a man unjustly accused of a crime. The film is an entertaining old-fashioned courtroom drama mixed with issues such as discrimination and misogyny. Chadwick Boseman as Marshall and Josh Gad as his partner are outstanding as two young men who risk their careers—and lives—to find justice.

“Blade Runner 2049” is a thoughtful and stunning return to a world created 35 years ago. The story picks up as a replicant hunter (aka a ‘Blade Runner’) uncovers a secret that could start a war between humans and replicants (the latter being bio-engineered humans). “Blade Runner 2049” is a rich and immersive science fiction film—much like its predecessor. The film may drag in places for some, but most people will appreciate the ambitious nature of the movie. Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford star.

Available now. Rated R.

Tom Cruise stars in this tale of an American pilot who became a drug-runner for the CIA in the 1980s. Based on a true story, “American Made” packs a lot of fun and a lot of thrills. The outrageous and over-the-top nature of the story is reflected in the narrativ—not to mention Cruise’s winning performance.
