“99 Homes” is the best performance I’ve ever seen from Garfield and it’s equally matched by Shannon
Full of amazing effects and riding a fine, over-the-top performance by Hugh Jackman, “Pan” is sure to be a hit with the 12-14 crowd
“Sleeping with Other People” is a sometimes raunchy comedy that occasionally tries too hard to shock
The Martian is a massively satisfying sci-fi film on every level that’s anchored by a standout performance from Matt Damon.
The 3D walk is worth price of admission though the rest of the film is considerably less exciting than the Oscar-winning documentary on the same event.
With a summer of dinosaurs, Minions and super heroes behind us, you might feel like you need a little laughter to start the fall. You can’t go wrong here.
Fast moving and full of great performances, “Black Mass” is a welcome return to the big screen of the Johnny Depp we admired 20 years ago!
The ups and downs, like the music our main characters plays, are tolerable or repulsive, depending on your age.
For being an alleged action movie, “Hitman: Agent 47” is about as entertaining as watching someone who’s watching someone play a videogame
“Fantastic Four” is mercilessly thick with exposition without giving the viewer a reward for their investment into the plot
For every moment you think “Mission: Impossible” is going to let up, it pushes harder on the throttle without giving you a moment to breathe.
“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” beautifully blends a coming-of-age story and the tricky subject of youthful enmity.
As funny as the first film, though a little slow towards the end, “Ted 2” is everything you were probably expecting and more.
A first rate thriller, “The Connection” excels because co-writer and director Jimenez has chosen to show both main characters in their entirety
Does manage to entertain when it really, really wants to, but it fades into forgotten passages of the disaster movie history books.
One of the drawbacks to the film is the length. Director Bird seems so intent on dazzling the audience that he seems to have lost his watch.
Written by first time director Showerman, “Radio America” is a film that tells the familiar message of doing what you want because you WANT to, not because you have too
“Age of Ultron” is more of everything, an often wow-inducing spectacle that leaves our heroes on intriguing and unstable grounds.
“Little Boy” has its heart in the right place, but it goes about showing it’s tenderness in the wrong way
A cross between “Meatballs” and “Stand by Me,” “Age of Summerhood” makes great use of its outdoor locations to show kids as they are rarely portrayed on screen: as kids.
“Unfriended” is something that’s better for a short film format, but it’s trapped in a bloated feature length movie.
A truly interesting documentary about the passion for creation and the naivete of the teen-age mind.
Sharply directed by Simon Curtis, the film is an intriguing mystery as, little by little, more and more information comes across the viewer’s desk
If your idea of fun is watching cars parachute out of a plane and attack like a swarm of Navy SEALS or a car driving through three skyscrapers, then “Furious 7” is going to make your pants explode
“Home” is obviously setting its sights on the children in the audience, with very few inside jokes for adults
Heavy on the gunfire and light on believability, “The Gunman” is a nice looking yet unsatisfying film barely kept afloat by its star
A chilling but contrived woodland thriller to do for camping what Open Water did for snorkling trips
It’s a well-made, guilty pleasure for Disneyphiles and a refreshing blast from Disney’s treasured past for everyone else
Cleverly written and expertly acted, “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” is a welcome, sunny treat during these final weeks of winter
A “Hispanic ‘Hoosiers’”, and I mean that with all due respect, “McFarland, USA” is an uplifting film that hits the right notes
A finely performed, well-paced film, and while it may strike some emotional chords with a female demographic, I found it to be extremely hard to relate to.
Firth does a good job as the proper English spy and looks like he’s having a good time. Sadly I couldn’t say the same.
The script, written by director Binder, tries to say too much, and in doing so, loses some of its charm.
More intense then violent, “A Most Violent Year” is a tightly written story carried along on the shoulders of its actors
Featuring an amazing performance by Bradley Cooper, “American Sniper” is Clint Eastwood’s return as an important filmmaker
I have not been a big supporter of Kevin Hart and expected another 90 mins of his screaming Chris Tucker impression. However, in “The Wedding Ringer,” he is quite funny and handles the role very well.
“Selma” would not have worked as a straight biopic, but works magnificently as a focus on grassroots activism
The negative is that, in order to make the film “family friendly,” some of the darker elements of the show have been removed.
Masterfully directed with a script by a who’s who of Oscar nominated screenwriters, “Unbroken” is easily the most inspirational film of the year as well as one of the year’s best!
The film’s cast is as game as ever to bring the story to life and the special effects continue to amaze
The amount of humor might lead audiences astray from whatever noble point Rock is trying to make about comedy
The final piece of a series is no longer a bloated epic detailing the final time we’ll see our heroes…
May be a film that catalogues 118 days of imprisonment& torture, but through it’s rough imagery, it promotes an uplifting message.
I enjoyed it overall but I didn’t walk away screaming “WOW!!” like I did with recent past Disney animated films like Wreck-It Ralph” & “Frozen”
A fascinating biopic that’s additionally buoyed by an outstanding performance from Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking.
