'The Trial of the Chicago 7' is a jolt of timeliness
"The Trial of the Chicago 7" feels timely in an at-times jolting way, with images of chaos in the streets and angry crowds chanting "The whole world is watching."

'Blackpink: Light Up the Sky' shines brightest when it humanizes the K-pop group

Like second-tier John Wayne westerns, Neeson offers enough of what his fans want, but a thin script and stilted dialogue make the battle harder than usual.
