DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — A man accused of driving onto and damaging the eastern Iowa baseball field made famous by the 1989 movie "Field of Dreams" has changed his plea to guilty.
Hallmark sentimentality, passionate defenses of Bob Dylan's "Time Out of Mind" and horrific head traumas are thrown together in Dan Fogelman's "Life Itself ," a curious cocktail of a movie from the "This is Us" creator about all of life's highest highs and lowest lows across generations and continents. Fogelman has seemingly never met an extreme emotion he doesn't want to exploit, and "Life Itself" might be the apex of that guiding principle.

The 10-year-old hero at the center of the film "The House With a Clock in Its Walls" likes to look up words in the dictionary, like "foreboding" and "indomitable." He might want to be familiar with the term "execrable" — that's a good one for this movie.
