As cold and uninviting as its subject, Black Mass is a competently made and star-studded look at the true life and crimes of legendary Boston mobster, James "Whitey" Bulger. The admittedly chilling source material somehow never manages to deliver any chills.
It's been a while since Johnny Depp last dressed up in ridiculous clothes with tons of jewelry and put on a whack load of eyeliner. On screen that is. The highly profitable Disney franchise returns for another installment in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
