Here’s what’s happening on the movie scene in Seattle during the week of Oct. 13.

Seven new movies will be showing in the Seattle area this week. Here are snapshots of what our movie reviewers thought of some of them.

★★★½  “Marshall” (PG-13): The courtroom drama is a genre that’s sadly gone out of fashion, but when it works — as it does with Reginald Hudlin’s “Marshall,” which stars Chadwick Boseman as then-NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall — it can be enormously satisfying. Full review. — Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times arts critic

 

★★★½  “Professor Marston & the Wonder Women” (R): Angela Robinson’s fascinating and surprisingly sweet-natured film ties together the creation of Wonder Woman and the unusual love story behind it. Full review. — Moira Macdonald

It’s an action-heavy, English-language, Hong Kong-style drama set largely in London and Belfast, Northern Ireland. The subject is terrorism. Full review. — John Hartl, Special to The Seattle Times

 

★★★  “Happy Death Day” (PG-13): Imagine “Groundhog Day” projected through a teen slasher lens, with Jessica Rothe as a vicious mean girl who relives the day of her murder over and over again. It’s campy, clever, thrilling and a delirious amount of horror fun. Full review. — Brent McKnight, Special to The Seattle Times
