Hector and the Search for Happiness
Film Review: Hector and the Search for Happiness

A good cast comes and goes and can’t quite carry this overly stylized, globetrotting dramedy, about one man who literally searches high and low in his pursuit of true happiness. More »

Film Review: Tusk

Kevin Smith kicks the dust off his filmmaking career with a wild, wooly walrus tale. More »

Walk Among the Tombstones Review
Film Review: A Walk Among the Tombstones

A grim ’70s-style detective story whose narrative failures are overshadowed by evocative turn-of-the-millennium anxieties and a world-weary tough-guy performance from Liam Neeson. More »

A grieving family opens its doors to a polite young man who knew their late son when both were serving in the military in this cautionary thriller about the perils of taking things–and people–at face value. More »

No Good Deed
Film Review: No Good Deed

This one certainly doesn't go unpunished, at least for the audience. More »

The Drop review
Film Review: The Drop

An excellent cast carries this familiar crime story that relies on revelations a little far-fetched. More »

Film Review: Dolphin Tale 2

Handicapped dolphin Winter finds a new friend in this wholesome sequel to a family favorite. More »

The Skeleton Twins
Film Review: The Skeleton Twins

A film with many shortcomings, yet notable for its ensemble cast and fine acting. More »

When the Game Stands Tall
Film Review: When the Game Stands Tall

Enervated football drama plods along predictably. More »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Film Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Neither significantly better nor worse than its predecessor, the belated Sin City sequel is more of a repeat, rather than a continuation, of the original. More »

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 »

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 »
