ANIMALS 109 minutes (MA15+) ★★★★☆Partying isn’t so much a hobby as a vocation for the two women who run fabulously amok through this arrested coming-of-age drama. ANGEL OF MINE 98 minutes (MA15+) ★★★☆☆ Swedish actress Noomi Rapace’s performance in this moody Australian thriller is so powerful, it throws the rest of the cast — and the world they inhabit — off balance. THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2 97 minutes (PG) ★★★☆☆ Director Thurop Van Orman employs the franchise’s absurd slingshot device with enough skill and dexterity to hit the vast majority of his comedic targets. IT: CHAPTER 2 169 minutes (MA15+) ★★★☆☆ Slithering eyeballs, humanheaded spiders, babies with bat wings … the Loser’s Club’s long-dreaded but hotly anticipated rematch with the evil clown Pennywise is like Dali on steroids. THE KITCHEN 103 minutes (MA15+) ★1/2 Three mobsters’ wives take over the family business when their husbands are jailed. There’s not much heat in The Kitchen, but it still burns a strong ensemble cast of Elisabeth Moss, Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish. ANGEL HAS FALLEN 121 minutes (MA15+) ★★ 1/2 Having saved the POTUS from two previous assassination attempts, Mike Banning is looking a bit rough around the edges. But he can still run rings around his adversaries. A DOG’S JOURNEY 109 minutes (PG) ★★1/2 The tricks are familiar, and the anthropomorphic dialogue is pretty ruff, but once you agree to roll over, this shaggy dog sequel scratches all the designated spots. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD 161 minutes (MA15+) ★★★1/2 A deliciously pulpy, fan-boy fairytale about cowboys of all kinds. Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the Golden Age of Hollywood stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.
