(Scarlett Johansson plays the title character in "Lucy.")

Movie Review: ‘Lucy’

(Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz star in "Sex Tape.")

Movie Review: ‘Sex Tape’

(2½ stars out of 4)Sex Tape offers its share of pure -– and some impure — physical comedy, which Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz meet the challenge of, delivering a respectable number of laugh-out-loud moments.

Movie Review: ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’

(2½ stars out of 4)This inevitable followup to the commercially successful kidflick “Planes” is another PG-rated film aimed unapologetically at the preschool kids in the audience.

(Zach Braff, center, wrote, produced, directed, and stars in "Wish I Was Here.")

Movie Review: ‘Wish I Was Here’

(2½ stars out of 4)It’s a mixed bag of a movie about marriage, with a generous number of grace notes delivered by a game cast.

Movie Review: ‘Earth to Echo’

("Tammy" stars Melissa McCarthy, right, with Susan Sarandon as her grandmother.)

Movie Review: ‘Tammy’

The pathos and hard truths trotted out in the third act are crowbarred into this slapstick vehicle as if flown in from another movie.

("Snowpiercer.")

Movie Review: ‘Snowpiercer’

With its idiosyncratic take on the 99 percent/one percent income-inequality class system and environmental destructiveness at the forefront, the film has remarkable contemporary relevance.

(Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde are among the stars in "Third Person.")

Movie Review: ‘Third Person’

“Third Person,” despite an intriguing opening and numerous compelling individual moments, demands patience from us without sufficiently rewarding it by film’s end.
