Onscreen echoes

This week’s new movie releases, including The Book of Henry and All Eyez On Me, sound oddly familiar

47 Meters Down: It’s hard to see how this ends well. But then, it always is.
  • 47 Meters Down: It’s hard to see how this ends well. But then, it always is.

47 Meters Down has girls and sharks, All Eyez on Me has rappers and racist cops, Beatriz at Dinner has a high-tension, high-end dinner party, The Book of Henry has boys and brutality and bullets, Cars 3 has Pixar’s sadness of aging, The Hero has aging romantic Sam Elliott, Letters from Baghdad has Gertrude Bell, One Week and a Day has people sitting shiva, Rough Night has a dead stripper, and Wakefield has Bryan Cranston pulling away from his loving family. Some are better than their predecessors, some are worse.

Band Aid, Dean, and Dawson City: Frozen Time don’t trigger an immediate association.
