movie reviews

(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Will the younger members of the audience get all the irreverently skewed historical references?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.

(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.

Catching Up With Oscar

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.

Movie Review: ‘The Lego Movie’

Make no mistake about it: this is a hundred-minute toy commercial.

02/12/2014

(The documentary "Kids For Cash" traces the juvenile justice corruption scandal that rocked Luzerne County, Pa. in 2008.)

Movie Review: ‘Kids For Cash’

Few fictional narratives will affect moviegoers as viscerally as this documentary, of perhaps the worst juvenile justice system scandal ever perpetrated, does.

that awkward moment

Movie Review: ‘That Awkward Moment’

“That Awkward Moment” is a quirky R-rated romantic comedy about the romantic and bromantic adventures of three twentysomething buddies.

02/01/2014

(Gattlin Griffit, Josh Brolin, and Kate Winslet make a peach pie in "Labor Day.")

Movie Review: ‘Labor Day’

Jason Reitman’s coming-of-age script, downright leisurely at times, allows for the unspoken to be as eloquent and affecting as the spoken, and is delivered in a layered narrative that mixes in flashbacks with recollective narration.

01/31/2014

(Aaron Eckhart stars in "I, Frankenstein.")

Movie Review: ‘I, Frankenstein’

A manmade monster meanders through a middling modern melodrama after murdering his master in this moribund miscreation.

01/30/2014

(Ralph Fiennes and Felicity Jones star in "The Invisible Woman.")

Movie Review: ‘The Invisible Woman’

Charles Dickens’ secret mistress wasn’t much of a secret.

01/24/2014

(Vanessa Hudgens stars in "Gimme Shelter.")

Movie Review: ‘Gimme Shelter’

Vanessa Hudgens continues her transition from the Disney Channel good-girl-persona phase of her career to that of a serious and mature actress, but –- at this point, anyway –- she appears to be in over her head.
