Posted on February 14, 2020 by

Sonic the Hedgehog

Starring: Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Neal McDonough

Directed by: Jeff Fowler

Plot: After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help it defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on it.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 65%

Critic Consensus: “Fittingly fleet and frequently fun, Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game-inspired adventure the whole family can enjoy — and a fine excuse for Jim Carrey to tap into the manic energy that launched his career”

Downhill

Starring: Will Ferrell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Zach Woods, Zoe Chao, Miranda Otto, Julian Grey

Directed by: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash

Plot: Barely escaping an avalanche during a family ski vacation in the Alps, a married couple is thrown into disarray as they are forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other.

RT Freshness: 44%

Critic Consensus: “Fittingly named for a remake whose charms are dwarfed by its superior source material, Downhill is frequently — and frustratingly — less than the sum of its talented parts”

The Photograph

Starring: Issa Rae, LaKeith Stanfield, Lil Rel Howery, Rob Morgan, Courtney B. Vance, Chante Adams

Directed by: Stella Meghie

Plot: When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton hurt, angry and full of questions. When a photograph tucked away in a safe-deposit box is found, Mae finds herself on a journey delving into her mother’s early life and ignites a powerful, unexpected romance with a rising-star journalist, Michael Block.

RT Freshness: 79%

Critic Consensus: “Gorgeous visuals, an affecting love story, and simmering chemistry between Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield keep The Photograph solidly in focus”

Directed by: Jeff Wadlow

Plot: The enigmatic Mr. Roarke makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.
