MOVIE REVIEW
“BLACK CHRISTMAS”
Rated PG-13. At AMC Loews Boston Common and South Bay Center, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters.
Grade: D
As a horror movie, the new “Black Christmas” qualifies as a piece of coal plopped in a Christmas stocking.
Set at fictional but diabolical Hawthorne University, somewhere in the USA , “Black Christmas” spends a completely boring and uninteresting first hour detailing a troubled history of pop culture political correctness issues on campus and in the classroom that spotlight gender hostilities.
Did we mention that along with a lengthy exposition...

Rated R. At AMC Loews Boston Common, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters.
Grade: A-

MOVIE REVIEW
“JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL”
Rated PG-13. At AMC Loews Boston Common, Showplace Icon, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters.
Grade: C
To describe “Jumanji: The Next Level” as a film about a videogame is redundant. Almost all action-adventure type films are like, if not based on, videogames these days. “Jumanji: The Next Level” is also a sequel to the 2017 hit “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” featuring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. That film was a sequel to the original “Jumanji” (1995), starring Robin Williams and based on the book by Chris Van...
