Movie Review: ‘Mother’s Day’

In ‘Mother’s Day,’ three generations come together, mothers everywhere are celebrated, and we’re left wishing that the movie was as creative as it is mawkish.

Movie Review: ‘Green Room’

Bravely, daring to sport a premise that is off-putting from the get-go, ‘Green Room’ pits punk rockers against neo-Nazis.

Movie Review: ‘Keanu’

Like a number of films over the years that began as seven-minute sketches – many of them emanating from, for example, ‘Saturday Night Live’ – ‘Keanu’ is misshapen as a feature film.

Movie Review: ‘A Hologram for the King’

Alan Clay needs to find a new direction and start over. That’s the fuzzy premise of the meandering, Kafkaesque comedy-drama, ‘A Hologram fore the King,’ anchored by the estimable Tom Hanks.

Movie Review: ‘Criminal’

This thriller is so goofily fanciful and casually sadistic, it’s almost ‘Criminal.’

Movie Review: ‘The Jungle Book’

‘The Jungle Book’ is a kidflick in the same way that ‘E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ are kidflicks.

Movie Review: ‘Miles Ahead’

‘Miles Ahead’ is a biopic, but a chronological, cradle-to-grave drama it is anything but.

Movie Review: ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’

Although ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ comes from the same director as 1993’s ‘Dazed and Confused,’ it is not a sequel.

Movie Review: ‘The Boss’

‘The Boss’ is comedic force of nature, Melissa McCarthy’s attempt to top herself and/or demonstrate her range.

Movie Review: ‘Demolition’

Demolition continues to make his case as a skilled screen-acting stalwart who can easily carry and sometimes even transcend a film.

Movie Review: ‘Midnight Special’

‘Midnight Special’ is a contemporary sci-fi fable, also a road or chase flick of sorts.
