ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL. With tonal inconsistencies and poorly written characters, any awe inspired by this visually stunning Manga adaptation is replaced with a profound sense of confusion. PG-13. (Grand). Grade: C

CAPTAIN MARVEL. Marvel's first movie featuring a female superhero is a plucky and pleasing, if predictable, excursion. It's a bit of a feminist character study that's brought down by outer space mumbo jumbo. PG-13. (Grand in 3-D and 2-D, East Park, Edgewood, SouthPointe). Grade: C+

THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART. This sequel to the high velocity 2014 joke barrage isn't as good as the original. But it's still an entertaining, innovative animated picture that has humor and good messages for all ages. PG. (East Park) Grade: B
