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.")

Movie Review: ‘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.

My Old Lady sure sounds like a comedy. But not exactly.

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.

(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.
