Heart, Humor Converge in Iron Man's Best Chapter Yet

While some comic book movies become lazy and predictable, genuine surprises and character development keep Iron Man 3 from growing stale.

Kings of Summer is No Moonrise Kingdom

Never quite finds its footing—emotionally, comedically or otherwise. It's simply too ridiculous to be taken seriously.

The Watsons Go to Birmingham Puts Family First

If parents are looking to teach their children about the Freedom Marches, or even a simple tale of God’s love, Birmingham is their destination.

World War Z Grades Much Higher in the Alphabet

Plenty of action, a few amusing moments, a lot of zombies, and a whole lot of Brad Pitt. There are certainly worse combinations.

Bling Ring a Shiny Package with Nothing of Value Inside

A painfully slow pace plus amoral, self-obsessed teens behaving like idiots minus a good lesson equals a massive waste of time.

Ironically, Into Darkness is Too Light on Meaningful Ideas

There's enough action to enjoy it, but this new Star Trek installment continues to show unfulfilled promise and a lack of strong themes.

Sexual Content, Thin Story Mar Otherwise Enjoyable Peeples

If an abundance of sexual innuendo, sexual situations, and broad slapstick comedy are your idea of a good time, Peeples is for you.

The View From Up on Poppy Hill is Complex, Rewarding

This animated coming-of-age story is aimed more at adolescents than young children, and packs a surprising, emotional wallop.

Firth, Blunt Wasted in Clichéd Arthur Newman

It's odd to say about an independent film that there’s little originality or authenticity in this slow, self-conscious, offbeat story.

Clever 'Gotcha' Not Enough to See Now You See Me

Plays like a movie equivalent of a CBS procedural: high in concept, production artifice, and plot holes, while low in character depth.

Leo & Luhrmann Make The Great Gatsby Matter

Baz Luhrmann captures the opulent decor and backs it with a hip-hop soundtrack that should feel out of place but works surprisingly well.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is Fascinating but Flawed

Tense, well-acted and intriguing, but fails to complete the picture of a complicated man or a lesson about tolerance.

Pain & Gain: Lots of the First, None of the Second

Michael Bay's version of this true-crime story crashes and burns because, like Transformers, there’s no discernible human connection.

Epic Never Quite Lives Up to Its Name

With such a title, the bar is immediately set too high for what’s a fairly conventional good vs. evil battle with spectacular visuals.

Brutal Olympus Has Fallen Insults Our Intelligence

Not the mindless action fun you've been hoping for. What makes the stupidity vile is the level of blood lust that fuels the good guy.

Like Redford, The Company You Keep Harkens to an Earlier Era

A captured fugitive says, "We made mistakes. But we were right." That’s the film’s view in a nutshell: sort of a Sympathy For Radicals.

Don't Crash The Big Wedding (it Crashes Just Fine on Its Own)

It’s called The Big Wedding but it’s really not about a wedding. It’s about sex (and some very unhappy people).

Derivative Oblivion Moves Too Slowly

For all its star power, futuristic talk and sci-fi imagery, the film is ponderous, mundane and ultimately forgettable.

Love Theme Emerges Clear as Mud

Director Jeff Nichols effectively blends genres, numerous subplots and character dynamics – and does so with emotional weight and power.

Malick's To the Wonder Wrestles with Love Itself

The core ideas, conflicts, and yearnings resonate so sincerely that it makes the occasional weight of self-import easy to forgive.
