Reboots

prettyReboots of older movies seem to be a thing this summer.  “Tomb Raider” updates the Lara Croft series. Alicia Vikander (“Danish Girl”) plays a more vulnerable Croft, the action is less super-hero like, and the plot device, the discovery of the tomb of a Japanese shaman, has potential.  “I Feel Pretty” (Amy Schumer) is a fresh spin on “Big”. It’s about a  young women whose bump in the head changes how she feels about her looks.   “A Wrinkle in Time”, the story about a girl travels in time to find her missing father, is a glossier production the 2004 TV version and its more studious-looking lead might be truer to  Madeline Engle’s original story. “Jumanji: Back to the Jungle ” features Jack Black pinch-hitting for the late Robin Williams. “7 Days in Entebbe”, the story of the famed hostage rescue, has bigger explosions than the 1997 Charles Bronson feature.
