Hercule Poirot must investigate a killing on a sumptuous cross-Europe train. Handsome and starry, this Agatha Christie adaptation struggles to showcase its cast or its plot, so while not-entertaining, feels a bit mechanical.
A ruthless Washington lobbyist goes against the pro-gun lobby. Initially intriguing though ultimately glib dramatic thriller with good performances and a sense of seriousness undone by an unbelievable third act.
A young woman on vacation in Thailand is cursed, and has to fight off a demon intent on possessing her. Straightforward jumpscare horror with some interesting moments and a neat supporting turn from Mark Boone Jr.
The true story of Molly Bloom, who ran high-stakes poker games in New York and LA. Excellent drama, balanced by a fine central performance and swaggering writing, chronicling a perhaps typical rise and fall-style story, but done with class and confidence.

A couple search for a fabled post-apocalyptic human city, while a self-aware AI system tracks them and it. Secondhand SF with many borrowings: The Hunger Games, Nightbreed and later Terminator sequels principal among them. Poor.
A search for a fabled elixir of youth reveals a network of hidden catacombs. Tatty mash-up of various Raiders, The Mummy, National Treasure and Alien sequels. Fun if you take a drink with each movie borrowing spotted, otherwise wholly avoidable.
