Movie review: Judi Dench rules (again) in the lopsided crowdpleaser 'Victoria & Abdul'

The English director Stephen Frears has an affinity for odd-couple comedies, particularly whenever Judi Dench gets involved. Their prior collaborations include "Mrs. Henderson Presents" (2005), in which Dench played a wealthy widow enjoying a thorny rapport with a theater manager (Bob Hoskins), and "Philomena" (2013), which cast her as a devout Irish Catholic woman searching for her long-lost son in the unlikely company of a cynical journalist (Steve Coogan).

Movie review: 'Ninjago' doesn't click like previous Lego movies

If you're of a certain age and childless, it's entirely possible you haven't the foggiest idea what a "Ninjago" – of the latest Lego movie – might be. Apparently it is both a show and a toy, but that's as far as I got into the Wikipedia article. With the wild success of both "The Lego Movie" and "The Lego Batman Movie," released just earlier this year, it stands to reason that Warner Bros. would strike while the iron is hot and churn out more Lego-themed movies, like "The Lego Ninjago Movie," which sadly proves that when it comes to the super fun Lego movies, there can be diminishing returns.
