Movie Review: ‘Gone Girl’

(3 stars out of 4!)The novel was a page turner, the movie is a barn burner.

(Mia Wasikowska stars in "Tracks.")

Movie Review: ‘Tracks’

(2 stars out of 4)It doesn’t look like a slog or sound like a slog. But it feels like a slog, which, regrettably makes it a slog.

(Nicolas Cage stars in "Left Behind.")

Movie Review: ‘Left Behind’

Nicolas Cage’s involvement may give the film more of a fighting chance at the box office, but it also sets up expectations about moviemaking quality that do not end up being met.

(Denzel Washington stars as "The Equalizer.")

Movie Review: ‘The Equalizer’

(2½ stars out of 4)All things being equalized, “The Equalizer” could have used a more grounded technical advisor. But the leading man needs no help.

(Simon Pegg stars in "Hector and the Search for Happiness.")

Rooting interest? How about interest, period? The feel-good status the film seems intent on achieving remains well out of reach.

(Tina Fey, Corey Stoll, Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, and Adam Driver are among the ensemble cast of "This is Where I Leave You.")

Movie Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

(2½ stars out of 4)It’s an ensemble comedy-drama that has its share of awkward moments, but, like the wildly dysfunctional family it portrays, it’s still a fun visit.

Movie Review” ‘No Good Deed’

Lest No Good Deed go unpunished, let’s cut to the chase: No Good Deed is one bad movie.

(Alfred Molina and John Lithgow star in "Love is Strange.")

Movie Review: ‘Love is Strange’

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina are impeccable -– understated, convincing, and empathetic –- both individually and as a screen team, delivering privileged moments galore.

09/11/2014

(Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Sawyer Nelson are two of the stars of "Dolphin Tale 2.")

Movie Review: ‘Dolphin Tale 2′

(2½ stars out of 4) This followup is sweet, sensitive, wholesome, and uplifting in the same way as the original. It is also, like the original, based on true events.

Here’s a peek at the mainstream movie lineup coming our way over the next two months.
