Coogler aims high with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and when the director hits his target, it’s right in the absolute center of the bull’s-eye. But the misses add up.
I’m not going to badmouth Falling for Christmas. Nothing truly terrible happens, and even in something as middling as this, it’s still wonderful to see Lohan back on the screen, willing to do whatever it takes to generate a laugh or get those sitting in the audience to smile.
