With social distancing and self-quarantining becoming the new normal for the foreseeable future, now is as good as time as any to binge some movie franchises — the longer the better.
“Onward,” the latest film from Pixar, is a funny, high-spirited fantasy adventure with several big emotional moments that will have kids asking their parents, “Why are you crying?” We wouldn’t expect anything less from the animation studio behind such films as “Toy Story” series, “WALL-E,” “…
In the opening scenes of “The Invisible Man,” a woman (Elisabeth Moss) escapes an abusive husband (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) in the middle of the night. As the woman, Cecilia, quietly moves through the large house of her tech-genius husband Adrian, she passes by some mysterious technology which …
For a long time, I proclaimed “High Fidelity,” the 2000 John Cusack-starring adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel, my favorite film. The story of a music-obsessed, list-making record store owner recounting his top five heartaches spoke to me when I first saw it at 17. The film is still in my top five.

With the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” the nine-film Skywalker Saga that began with 1977’s “Star Wars” has come to a close. While there will certainly be more “Star Wars” films, this is the end of the episodic adventures of Luke Skywalker, et al.
