movie reviews

(Pierre Niney stars at iconic fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in the biographical film of the same name.)

Movie Review: ‘Yves Saint Laurent’

Yves Saint Laurent purports to present the man behind the myth but still gives us mostly myth and minimal man.

(The computer-animated star of "Earth to Echo.")

Movie Review: ‘Earth to Echo’

It’s not quite a ripoff, not quite a knockoff, not quite an homage. Let’s call it an echo and leave it at that.

07/08/2014

("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.

07/03/2014

("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.

07/02/2014

(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.

07/02/2014

(Mark Wahlberg, right, stars in "Transformers: Age of Extinction.")

Weekend Box Office Report: Robots Transform Weekend Totals

Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth installment in the science fiction series, earned an estimated $100-million for a runaway first-place finish.

(Anne Hathaway stars in "Interstellar," due for release this fall.)

(Mark Wahlberg, right, stars in "Transformers: Age of Extinction.")

Movie Review: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’

With this fourth installment in the “Transformers” franchise from director Michael Bay, I’ve been magically transformed from a bored viewer into a really bored viewer.

06/27/2014

("Jersey Boys" is the movie version of the hit Broadway musical about the '60s singing group The Four Seasons.)

Movie Review: ‘Jersey Boys’

“Jersey Boys” is a movieization of the hit musical that opened in 2005 and became one of Broadway’s longest-running shows.

think like a man too

Movie Review: ‘Think Like a Man Too’

There’s just too much going on for the film’s through-line to buzz through the clutter.

06/19/2014

(Jenny Slate stars in "Obvious Child.")

Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’

Like its standup-comic protagonist, the film is rough around the edges, impressing us with its brave ambitiousness, but still struggling to get satisfying laughs and smiles of recognition.

06/19/2014

(Jay Baruchel returns as the voice of Hiccup in the sequel, "How To Train Your Dragon 2.")

Movie Review: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′

The first one was respectable. The second is delectable.

06/12/2014

(Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum star in "22 Jump Street.")

Movie Review: ’22 Jump Street’

It’s essentially a rehash of the 2012 feature “21 Jump Street,” but with a bigger-is-better budget.

06/12/2014

(Brendan Gleeson, far left, and Taylor Kitsch star in "The Grand Seduction.")

Movie Review: ‘The Grand Seduction’

“The Grand Seduction” isn’t quite grand, but it is seductive.
