Critics review “The Snyder Cut,” Zack Snyder’s four-hour version of the 2017 superhero film “Justice League.” “Quo Vadis, Aida?,” an Oscar nominee about a United Nations translator trying to save her family during the Bosnian War; “Slaxx,” an original from the horror movie streaming service Shudder, about a killer pair of jeans; “The Courier,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch and based on the true story of Greville Wynne, a British businessman recruited to gather information from the Soviets during the Cold War.
