NEW YORK (CNS) — With a thematic agenda that takes it beyond the usual confines of its genre, and a story driven forward by sustained, nervous dread — an emotion skillfully conveyed from the characters to the audience — "Kong: Skull Island" (Warner Bros.) is an impressive monster movie.

NEW YORK (CNS) — As its title implies, "Collide" (Open Road) involves vehicular mayhem.

There's so much high-speed demolition derby, in fact, that it becomes somewhat more entertaining, just on the basis of sheer volume, to focus on that rather than the thin drug-smuggling plot. But director Eran Creevy, who co-wrote the screenplay with F. Scott Frazier, intends all of this with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

The Shack
NEW YORK (CNS) — "The Shack" (Summit), director Stuart Hazeldine's screen version of William Paul Young's best-selling novel, represents a serious effort to tackle the problem of evil from a Christian perspective. As such, it will be welcomed by believers.

Get Out

NEW YORK (CNS) — Is the thriller "Get Out" (Universal) as good as all get out? Well, not exactly.

Clever social commentary from writer-director Jordan Peele does add heft to the proceedings. But late scenes featuring some gory encounters, together with swearing throughout, make his film a rugged ride even for grown-ups.

Justice League Dark
NEW YORK (CNS) — DC Comics' new straight-to-video release "Justice League Dark" (Warner Home Video) should come with a label that reads, "Warning: Not a Real Justice League Movie."

Even more important, the fact that this animated feature is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America should be conscientiously brought to parents' attention.

Early on in the film, its main character, seemingly successful high school student Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch), is killed in a car crash. But instead of this being the end of her tale, it turns out to be just the beginning.
