(Tina Fey is among the flesh-and-blood performers in "Muppets Most Wanted.")

Movie Review: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’

Like its seven big-screen predecessors, this Muppets movie puts a wide smile on your face and leaves it there.

(Kristen Bell stars in the movie "Veronica Mars," reprising her TV role.)

Movie Review: ‘Veronica Mars’

“Veronica Mars” began as a crime-solving TV series that had low ratings but the undying love of its fervent fans. Kristen Bell reprises her role as the wisecracking, crime-solving outsider.

(Aaron Paul stars in "Need For Speed.")

Movie Review: ‘Need For Speed’

If speed is all you need, then maybe “Need for Speed” will do it for you.

03/14/2014

(TIlda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes are among the large array of stars in "The Grand Budapest Hotel.")

Movie Review: ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

The Grand Budapest Hotel, a story within a story within a story, is set in the fictional Eastern European republic of Zubrowka between World War I and World War II.

(Max Charles and Ty Burrell are the voices of Sherman, left, and Mr. Peabody, right.)

Movie Review: ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’

Will the younger members of the audience get all the irreverently skewed historical references? No. Does that matter? Not really.

03/06/2014

(John Cusack stars with Rebecca Da Costa, right, and Robert De Niro in "The Bag Man.")

Movie Review: ‘The Bag Man’

This dispiriting, noirish crime thriller is tall on crime and short on thrills.

03/06/2014

(Liam Neeson stars as a federal air marshal in "Non-Stop.")

Movie Review: ‘Non-Stop’

Non-Stop extends Liam Neeson’s action résumé with an airplane-hijacking thriller that flies the unfriendly skies fueled by the paranoia we feel in the post-9/11 universe.

Here’s a list of the movies you don’t want to miss. They are all figuring prominently in the 2014 Academy Awards ceremonies.

02/21/2014

(Kevin Costner stars as a CIA agent in "3 Days to Kill.")

Movie Review: ’3 Days to Kill’

3 Days to Kill is a shallow action thriller with an uneasy mix of brutal fight sequences and sentimental family-reunion scenes.

02/21/2014

(Tom Felton and Jessica Lange in a scene from "In Secret," based on an Emile Zola novel.)

Movie Review: ‘In Secret’

Its themes of love, lust, adultery, and murder are woven so organically into Emile Zola’s source material that they still pack the power to grab and move us.

02/20/2014

(Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde star in "Endless Love.")

Movie Review: ‘Endless Love’

It’s the story of a privileged, upper-class girl and the lower-class boy (and fellow recent high school graduate) she falls for — against the strong objections of her parents.

02/13/2014

("The Monuments Men" stars include, counter-clockwise from bottom left, George Clooney, who also directed; Matt Damon; Bob Balaban; and John Goodman.)

Movie Review: ‘The Monuments Men’

The Monuments Men may not be monumental, but it sure is quietly but richly entertaining.
