White House Down Gets No Thumbs Up

May prove to be a classic example where film critics and the masses part ways, as there is much to pick on but there were also cheers.

Nothing Grown Up - or Funny - about Grown Ups 2

What on earth did they do to earn their paychecks, sit around and drink beer all day until they came up with recurring plot points?

Monsters University: The Parental Guidance of Pixar Movies

Not even close to being on par with Pixar's Toy Story sequels, but a genial nature and thoroughgoing inoffensiveness make it palatable.

Bridges Breathes Life into R.I.P.D.

Flawed, but it only takes one special element to set a film apart. Here, it's a loony performance from the great Jeff Bridges.

The Way, Way Back is Way, Way Overrated

The only distinguishing characteristic is that it doesn't have one. The writing and direction lack distinction; the young lead is bland.

As Faith-Based Fright Fest, The Conjuring Fails

In a way, this is a faith-based film. It's also scary, violent, and filled with images that I don't think anyone really needs to see.

Before Midnight Beautifully Caps Trilogy Capturing Life, Love

Love is still central in this trilogy's third act, but now so much more life has been lived, and consequences can be Love’s kryptonite.

Lewd Humor Tarnishes The Internship's Underdog Story

If you can tear your eyes from the geeked-out Google campus long enough to ponder the plot, you’ll realize you've seen this story before.

Title Aside, Only God Forgives Isn't Spiritually Edifying

There is neither grace nor forgiveness here, only revenge. In this story of a fight between man and 'god' it’s not clear who wins.

Veggie Tales Merry Larry Shines Big and Bright

There are a lot of things that make Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas a special edition to the Veggie Tales collection.

So This is Christmas One Unhappy Holiday

Not family-friendly, and not really a Christmas movie. But it tries hard to be a Christian movie without sanitizing real-world problems.

Pacific Rim Looks Solid but Rings Hollow

Had promise, considering del Toro, of being the rare big-budget film to fire on all cylinders, but alas, it's dumb, loud and predictable.

The Heat's Rap Sheet: Funny but Endlessly Profane

Laughs are consistent and abundant in this all-female take on the cop buddy genre. So are the f-bombs and misuses of God's name.

Home Run Advances Christian Filmmaking a Base or Two

Pretty much a two-hour commercial for Celebrate Recovery, but as promotional videos go it's a surprisingly good and realistic one.

After Earth Points to Brighter Future for Shyamalan

At heart, a father-son story in which a young man is called upon to put dad's lessons into action. Not complex, but largely satisfying.

Shakespeare & Whedon's Worlds Mix Well in Much Ado About Nothing

Funny script and whimsical tone give movie lovers an escape from the more mindless stories where the highlight is something blowing up.

The Purge Flunks Philosophy to Favor Fright

Tries to make us ask deep questions, but really, a "kill or be killed" scenario does not raise the moral dilemma the filmmakers think.

Hangover III: Hang It Up Already

Less a disaster than a standard disappointment, the biggest of which is Bradley Cooper, who phones it in post-Silver Linings Playbook.

Nothing Too Crude about The Croods

A funny, family-friendly, family-affirming movie that parents will identify with and kids will love.
