Marvel looks to dominate another box-office weekend, while lower-key offerings include a biopic about an American president, a romantic-comedy documentary and a milestone feature for a celebrated Japanese director.

Woody Harrelson's performance can't provide enough foundation for the overly-streamlined biopic LBJ (pictured). The terrific documentary Dina proves to be more than just a romance between two people on the autism spectrum.

Eric D. Snider celebrates the perverse premise and grim humor of The Killing of a Sacred Deer. A mediocre premise only gets worse in the holiday raunch-com sequel A Bad Moms Christmas.

MaryAnn Johanson laments the interminable gorefest that is Takashi Miike's 100th feature, Blade of the Immortal.

In this week's feature review, a little extra comedy and a familiar Marvel formula make for the predictably pretty good Thor: Ragnarok.
