We've got dual main reviews this week, for the same price as one! How much of Skyscraper's appeal boils down to Dwayne Johnson? Does it remind anyone of Die Hard? Does Won't You Be My Neighbor pull at the heart strings adequately? Does it touch on some of Mr. Rogers' controversies well enough?

It's John Krasinski week--or it may as well be, as we review his directed-by/written-by-and-starring-in A Quiet Place. Can it transcend our reluctance about the horror genre? What does it have to say about dystopic life?
