HOW I MET YOUR FATHER
A spin-off of mid-2000s hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother, is finding its footing as it continues to delight fans who revel in the current Gen-Z-centric angle. Like the original, with a gender reverse for the premise, adult Sophie is telling her son in the year 2050 the story of how she met his father. But, like Ted Mosby in HIMYM, she dances around the issue by teasing story after story about how she met her core group of friends in New York and all the men she dated before finally settling down.

STRANGE WORLD
Part “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” part “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” this bright and busy animated adventure works a climate-change allegory into a more intimate story of a father and son with diverging priorities.
