Triple 9 movie (2016) review

Triple 9 Review

Triple 9 has elements of greatness, but its talented cast and inspired directorial flourishes are offset by messy storytelling choices.

Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2 trailer sets record

Zoolander 2 Review

Zoolander 2 aims to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor, but amounts to a serviceable (though less memorable) comedy sequel.

The Finest Hours trailer #2 and poster

The Finest Hours Review

The Finest Hours is a respectful dramatization of the real-life events that inspired it, but is too by the numbers to leave a strong impression.

Po and the Furious Five in Kung Fu Panda 3 (Review)

Kung Fu Panda 3 Review

Kung Fu Panda 3 is a well-meaning piece of escapism for kids - one that shows signs of wear in the larger computer-animated kung fu franchise.

Krampus (2015) movie review

Krampus Review

Krampus isn't as clever or scary as Christmas horror/comedies past, but provides enough kitschy fun for those craving a darker holiday yarn.

Spectre Review

Unfortunately, Spectre is to Skyfall what Quantum of Solace was to Casino Royale; that is to say: less inspired in just about every way.

Bradley Cooper in Burnt

Burnt Review

Burnt fails as a character study, but thrives when bringing the fast-moving world of professional chefs to cinematic life.

Our Brand is Crisis Starring Sandra Bullock (Review)

Our Brand is Crisis Review

Our Brand is Crisis stumbles in turning the 2002 Bolivian presidential election into a cohesive dramedy but the film is packed with memorable humor.

Bridge of Spies Review

Bridge of Spies is a bit of dull historical theater, propped up by the talents of Spielberg, Tom Hanks and the Coen Bros.

Crimson Peak Reviews Movie (2015)

Crimson Peak Review

Crimson Peak is a classic case of style over substance resulting in a hollow movie experience that never fully reaches its potential.

The Intern with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathway

The Intern Review

The Intern is an insubstantial Nancy Meyers comedy kept afloat by Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway's screen chemistry.

The Hotel Transylvania 2 Movie Cast 2015 (Review)

Hotel Transylvania 2 Review

Hotel Transylvania 2 offers cute but brainless escapism for young moviegoers - as well as parents looking to distract their children for a few hours.

The Visit Movie Reviews 2015 (Shyamalan)

The Visit Review

The Visit is a fun and kitschy horror parable - though the trademark Shyamalan twist will be a big disappoint for many viewers.

The Boy Movie 2015 Starring Jared Breeze

The Boy Review

The Boy is a very slow burn, one that successfully works to the narrative at hand, but isn't particularly enjoyable to watch.
