3.5 star movies

Foxcatcher (reviews) movie starring Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell

'Foxcatcher' Review

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

'Interstellar' Starring Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, and Wes Bentley (Review)

'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 movie review

'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 Reviews Starring Keanu Reeves

'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)

'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

James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy in The Drop (review)

'The Drop' Review

The Drop is ultimately a solid mood piece, with strong performances that help elevate it above its derivative story elements.

'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 movie review

'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 movie review

'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.

Tom Hardy in Locke (Review)

'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.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in 'Neighbors' (Review)

'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.

Scarlett Johansson in 'Under the Skin' (Review)

'Under the Skin' Review

For cinephiles that enjoy artistic debate more than concrete answers, the film allows an intriguing platform for discussion and reflection.

Judi Dench and Steve Coogan in Philomena

'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.

Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson in 'About Time' (Review)

'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.
