Hollywood knows what you're doing on Sunday staying home and watching the Super Bowl so the studios aren't throwing out any big movies to fight against it.
"The Woman in Black" marks the beginning of Daniel Radcliffe's post-"Harry Potter" career, as he plays a Victorian-era lawyer assigned to sort out the will of a widow woman in a creaky country mansion. The movie is robustly old-fashioned in its scares, though it loses some brainpower as it goes.
"Chronicle" is another "found footage" thriller, this one with superhero-origin trappings. Three high-school friends discover some glowing thingee in the woods and, after touching it, discover they have telekinetic abilities. The storyline follows too-familiar contours, as one of the teens succumbs to the dark side of his new powers. The effects are pretty cool, although the "found footage" gimmick gets a little stretched.
