There are three movies in cinemas these days that feature iconic anthropomorphic dolls.The reviews for "Toy Story 4" are pretty good and the "Child's Play" reboot is actually pretty solid, too. It's a winking, self-aware horror movie that will make you laugh even when things are drenched in blood.The original "Child's Play" came out in 1988 and featured the nightmare-creating concept of your dolls coming to life and harming you.It was a fairly straight-ahead horror flick with a dash of commentary on consumerism. At one point, there's a "Star Wars" joke that's especially funny because Mark Hamill voices Chucky.While most of the oxygen will be taken up with "Toy Story 4," credit goes to "Child's Play" for turning in a solid valentine to the darker side of what "Toy Story" also does -- including movie posters that drag the bigger franchise."Child's Play" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
