The Woman in Black

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

With Harry Potter finally behind him, Daniel Radcliffe brings this longtime English scare entity to the big screen. London solicitor Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) is sent to settle the affairs of its recently deceased owner. Years earlier, Alice Drablow lost her son in the nearby marsh. His cries can still be heard. Kipps comes to learn the truth of the creepy village, the title woman and a startling fatality rate for local kids. Radcliffe is great, and the movie is an entertaining horror film, even if we’ve seen it before.

Mötley Crüe

By Cindi Reed

The Crüe made a big deal about all the spectacular things they could do with their Hard Rock residency (which runs through Feb. 19) that they couldn’t do when lugging sets on tour. So did they deliver? Sort of. The aerial silk performers were cool; the pyrotechnics were plenty; Tommy Lee’s much-vaunted drumcoaster was neat (although they’d managed to lug a similar one on their last tour); and it was fun to see Vince Neil swoop in from the balcony (kind of like what Cher did back at the Colosseum). But for all this talk of “taking on Sin City,” I expected more.
