CRITICS' PICKS

The Farewell: Lulu Wang's tender, funny and melancholy dramedy about an elaborate family deception is personal filmmaking at its most incisive, with superb performances from a cast that includes Awkwafina, Zhao Shuzhen, Tzi Ma and Diana Lin.

Toy Story 4: Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with a new friend. If Pixar is getting bored with its franchise-extending chores for Disney, it certainly doesn't show in this funny, freaky, often profound animated adventure that is certainly the best movie ever made about a spork.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: Spooky things happen when teens tell scary stories in an old mansion with a dark history.

Hobbs & Shaw: In this Fast & Furious spinoff, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham return as a lawman and a lawless outcast who form an unlikely partnership to take on a genetically enhanced force that threatens humanity.
