Can't decide what to see this weekend?

Bowling Green Daily News film critic Micheal Compton is here to tell you the best - and worst - now playing at your local cineplex.

Aquaman (B)

The latest entry to the D.C. Comics Universe is as easy and laid back as its very likable lead (Jason Momoa) - a bit clunky at times but ultimately a lot of fun. (Franklin Drive-In)

Captain Marvel (B)

The 21st movie in the franchise doesn’t just serve as an origin story, it is the bridge between last year’s “Infinity Wars” and its conclusion that comes out next month, “End Game.” (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas)

Captive State (D)

A dull science fiction film that's a cross between "The Purge" and Independence Day," without any actual action whatsoever. (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12)

Cruel Intentions (B)

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of this cult classic with a theatrical release, it is kind of fun to go back and see Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe in this update of "Dangerous Liasons." (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12)

Fighting With My Family (B)

This solid bio-pic about WWE superstar Paige is a film that even non-wrestling fans can enjoy - a family drama that depicts the highs and lows of aspiring to make it in the wrestling world. (Highland Cinemas)

Five Feet Apart (C)

Leads Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse give it everything they have in this hokey teen romance flick about two people suffering from cystic fibrosis who find love. (Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas)

Glass (F)

The spin-off from "Split" and "Unbreakable" proves to be the very worst of writer/director M. Night Shyamalan – an arrogant piece of filmmaking that is nothing more than a contrived mess of comic book psychobabble that wears thin very quickly. (Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10)

Greta (B-)

This thriller starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Isabelle Huppert feels like it is about to come off the rails most of the way, yet manages to stay on path until it finds its footing in a satisfying final act that embraces the craziness. (Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10)

Happy Death Day 2U (B)

The follow-up to the surprise 2017 hit “Happy Death Day,” is that rare sequel that surpasses the original – a fun, genre-bending excursion that takes the franchise in a different direction that is more enjoyable than the first one. (Highland Cinemas)

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (B)

Another well-crafted entry into the popular animated series that feels like the final chapter of a very satisfying trilogy. (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas)

Isn't It Romantic (C)

This spoof of romantic comedies is pretty much like your average film in the genre - light, fluffy, and easily forgettable. (Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10)

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (B+)

The return to the original Lego world is a joyful reunion that may not have quite the same charm as the original, but it is still pretty awesome. (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas, Franklin Drive-In)

Run the Race (not reviewed at this time)

(Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12)

Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (D)

What is billed as the final film to feature Tyler Perry's beloved character Madea is pretty much like every other one in the series - an uneven comedy that is poorly edited and poorly directed. (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Highland Cinemas)

The Upside (B-)

The remake of the French film "The Intouchables" is a formulaic film that really doesn't take many chances. Sometimes the pacing feels off and the story never really has any surprises.

Even with all of that "The Upside" manages to work thanks to an ace, make that two aces, up its sleeve - Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. (Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10)

Us (A-)

Writer/director Jordan Peele's follow-up to "Get Out" once again takes the horror genre and spins it in intriguing ways to create an experience that feels like some wonderful mix of Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch. (Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas)

Wonder Park (not reviewed at this time)

(Regal Bowling Green Stadium 12, Regal Greenwood Mall Stadium 10, Highland Cinemas)
