Major Releases

The One I Love
Film Review: The One I Love

Love gets strange in this thought-provoking relationship dramedy, about a mixed-up couple who discover a singular way of reconnecting. More »

Are You Here
Film Review: Are You Here

“Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner conjures empty men for his second feature outing, the story of two loser pals who win a chance to upgrade their lives when one happens upon an unexpected inheritance. Surprising failure on multiple counts. More »

If I Stay
Film Review: If I Stay

Delivers as promised. More »

The Expendables 3
Film Review: The Expendables 3

Third go-round for the aging mercenaries, this time fighting a ruthless arms dealer. Sylvester Stallone's B-movie formula is wearing thin. More »

The Giver
Film Review: The Giver

Another bleakly perfect future-world, another teen hero who challenges the status quo. Is this long-gestating project too late to the party? More »

Let's Be Cops
Film Review: Let's Be Cops

Let's not and say we did. More »

Into the Storm
Film Review: Into the Storm

This shoot-from-the-hip disaster flick dispenses (not quite quickly enough) with credible characters and even the pretense of its shaky-cam POV premise to get to the business at hand: shredding a Midwestern town with a monster tornado. More »

The Hundred-Foot Journey
Film Review: The Hundred-Foot Journey

Things old and proven in traditional movie storytelling refresh again in this lovely but predictable romantic drama about a family of new Indian immigrants to France who launch a restaurant across the road from an established Michelin one-star staple. Fortifying this familiar menu is the presence of the always watchable Helen Mirren and a story as digestible as popular French and Indian dishes. More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Film Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Aimed squarely at the elusive point where the attention spans of young children, teenagers and adults meet, the 3D Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles strikes it with surprising regularity. More »

Step Up All In
Film Review: Step Up All In

One step forward, two steps back. More »

What If
Film Review: What If

Daniel Radcliffe engages in an otherwise groan-inducing affair. More »

Get On Up
Film Review: Get On Up

Chadwick Boseman is sensational in this multi-faceted portrait of troubled, pioneering soul-music giant James Brown. More »

Guardians of the Galaxy review
Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

With Marvel’s backing, cult filmmaker James Gunn blasts off for the stars and takes audiences along for a wild, funny ride. More »

Hercules
Film Review: Hercules

Legendary strongman is caught in the middle of a brutal civil war in a fast-paced vehicle for Dwayne Johnson. More »

And So It Goes
Film Review: And So It Goes

As generic as its title, this comedy squarely aimed at "mature" audiences may find itself roundly rejected by seniors, if they have any taste. More »

Lucy
Film Review: Lucy

Drugs unleash the full potential of the brain with tragic results in Luc Besson's sci-fi adventure. More »

The Fluffy Movie
Film Review: The Fluffy Movie

The personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film. More »

Magic in the Moonlight
Film Review: Magic in the Moonlight

Slight Woody Allen period romance is enlivened by appealing leads Colin Firth and Emma Stone. More »

Wish I Was Here
Film Review: Wish I Was Here

A failing actor learns that his father is dying in Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded feature. More »

Sex Tape review
Film Review: Sex Tape

Couple's homemade porn circulates on the web in an R-rated comedy that wastes the talents of its stars. More »

The Purge: Anarchy
Film Review: The Purge: Anarchy

A modest but noticeable improvement on its predecessor, The Purge: Anarchy offers a more effective—if still far from ideal—realization of the series' killer premise. More »

Planes
Film Review: Planes: Fire and Rescue

Action-oriented animated sequel that, in blockbuster fashion, offers well-choreographed set-pieces in place of an interesting story and characters. More »

A Most Wanted Man
Film Review: A Most Wanted Man

Stylish, dense contemporary spy drama about a suspected terrorist on the loose in 2008 Hamburg has the late Philip Seymour Hoffman again delivering an exceptional performance, here as a rogue German agent determined to stamp out terrorism. A true audience-pleaser for the smart set, but attention must be paid. More »

Dawn of the Apes review
Film Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

If Rise of the Planet of the Apes successfully restarted the dormant Apes franchise, the superior Dawn indicates the grand saga this new iteration might become. More »

Deliver Us From Evil
Film Review: Deliver Us From Evil

An effective if imperfect meeting of the detective film and the exorcism-based fright flick. More »

Earth to Echo
Film Review: Earth to Echo

Earth to Echo is a shame-free replication of (or homage to) E.T. and Chronicle, but mainly hits home with its universal worry: What happens when best teen buds are forced to separate? More »

Tammy
Film Review: Tammy

Hollywood’s most bankable big-screen comedienne is on the buddy-comedy road again, with a most worthy companion—a brilliantly out-there Susan Sarandon. More »

America
Film Review: America

Dinesh D'Souza returns with another jingoistic doc that primarily plays to true believers. More »

Transformers: Age of Extinction
Film Review: Transformers: Age of Extinction

Autobots defend ungrateful humans in the fourth entry in the franchise. Special effects still reign despite a new cast. More »

They Came Together
Film Review: They Came Together

David Wain does the world a solid by giving glossy romantic comedies the Wet Hot American Summer treatment. More »
