“Ouija: Origin of Evil” did screen for critics, but it was at the same time as “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” due to a long-standing pissing match between Universal and Paramount that most local publicists can’t (or won’t) fix. Usually when there are conflicts I see the one that was on the schedule first, but in this case I figured people would want a “Jack Reacher” review before they wanted one for “Ouija.” I’ll catch it soon.
