    ‘Foxcatcher’ is an interesting character study that struggles to convey insightful conclusions about its subjects.

  • ‘Interstellar’ Review

    Interstellar is an imaginative movie, but a heavy-handed mix of personal sacrifice and theoretical physics doesn’t leave much room for subtle storytelling.

  • ‘St. Vincent’ Review

    St. Vincent is ultimately derivative of other (and better) indie filmmakers’ work, but thanks to Bill Murray’s performance, it’s still a pleasant and funny viewing experience.

  • ‘John Wick’ Review

    ‘John Wick’ excels, unapologetically, at what it seeks to be: a fun, pulpy, violent B-movie action romp, built upon a cool mythology within a compelling Noir world.

  • ‘The Boxtrolls’ Review

    While The Boxtrolls doesn’t represent the studio’s best work, it’s nonetheless another visually-inventive, witty, and energetic fairy tale adventure to add to Laika’s mantlepiece

  • ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Review

    As it stands, the uniqueness of the time reset premise and sci-fi action distinguish the film from so many others in the genre, and it is at least worth a matinée viewing on the big screen.

  • ‘Chef’ Review

    At the end of the day, though, Chef is successful in fulfilling its ambitions – offering a pleasant cinematic road trip, which also works as a palate cleanser for Favreau the filmmaker.

  • ‘Belle’ Review

    Belle might be a little too polite, for those who prefer their period dramas to be more souped up; at the same time, though, it has an intelligence that should make it more appealing.

  • ‘Locke’ Review

    Locke has its flaws, but manages to satisfy as a minimalist work of social realism that is both dramatically-rich and often quite engaging.

  • ‘Neighbors’ Review

    Neighbors is a smart blend of prior Stoller films – a likable mix of over-the-top comedy beats grounded with relatable characters and life scenarios.

  • ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ Review

    Despite any setbacks, Stiller’s adaptation is an inspiring and beautifully shot character adventure – one that even manages to get a worthwhile message across without becoming too preachy.

  • ‘Philomena’ Review

    Dench and Coogan are the beating heart of Frears’ cinematic social/political commentary, as their work together is enough to accommodate many of the flaws in storytelling.

  • ‘The Best Man Holiday’ Review

    The Best Man Holiday is a worthwhile revisiting that manages to push its characters forward in a very mature and emotionally honest way.

  • ‘About Time’ Review

    Science fiction fans, along with anyone who is especially intrigued by the time travel premise, should temper certain expectations and, instead, focus on About Time’s endearing character moments.
