Critics review Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan;” “I’m Thinking of Ending Things,” from director Charlie Kaufman about one couple’s unusual relationship and mind games; “The Andorra Hustle,” about a bank robbery in the tiny country of Andorra, situated between France and Spain; “Love, Guaranteed,” about a lawyer and her relationship with a new client, who wants to sue a dating website over its guarantee of love. 

Also, one of the biggest releases of the summer is coming out today, but it’s not showing in LA. Audiences must head to the San Diego area where select theaters are showing Christopher Nolan’s new film “Tenet.”
