Fast Five (PG-13)

★★★☆☆

As male power fantasies go, this fifth Fast franchise installment has an undeniable trashy charm. We join the original crew of road-racing bandits—Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster—robbing trains in Rio de Janeiro. With FBI agent Dwayne Johnson on their tail, they plan a $100 million caper. With crisp stunts that defy the laws of physics and a gritty atmosphere, this film is never dull. The extravagantly budgeted action scenes are so thrilling that you can forfeit its shortcomings.

Scream 4 (R)

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ... more Scream? The fourth installment of the seminal ’90s horror franchise (and the first in more than a decade) follows poor Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now a best-selling author, as yet another copycat killer in an Edvard Munch-inspired mask picks off her nearest and dearest. The formula no longer feels fresh, but at least Ghostface knows enough to call victims on their smartphones now.
