Lucasfilm Ltd. One thing I know after seeing Godzilla is Gareth Edwards doesn’t need a good script to deliver a great blockbuster.

Sundance Film Festival There were several walkouts during the screening I caught of Pervert Park. I don’t know what those people anticipated from a documentary about a community of sex offenders, but it is worth noting that however intense you think a film with that descriptor will be, this one will likely exceed those expectations. These sex offenders, some of whom committed absolutely insidious crimes, discuss said crimes with unsparing candor. Nothing about this film seeks to soften its subject matter. What it does try to do is bring humanity to its characters.

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs. The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and “Dark Shadows” in 2012.

Sundance Film Festival It seems every year brings one notable documentary that features a major “plot twist,” and The Amina Profile may be this year’s model. That makes it difficult to discuss all aspects of the film, since much of its thematic resonance stems from the nature of the twist. Of course, if the words “A Gay Girl in Damascus” mean anything to you, then you’ll know exactly where the plot is going. I did, so I was ahead of the characters in the film, but I can happily report that this doesn’t harm its effectiveness.
