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.

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.
