Maze Runner Not the Most Novel Dystopian Tale

Levels of intensity and violence push the PG-13 boundaries, but the film is competent considering it's another teen dystopian adaptation.

This is Where I Leave You: At the Opening Credits?

Has a fabulously talented cast with authentic-feeling relationships. So what's the downside to this film? It is wildly inappropriate.

May Tombstones Mark the Death of the Liam Neeson Taken Clones

Yes, Neeson is officially stuck in a rut. Now his "special set of skills" action persona is lost in a film that's forgettable and drab.

Suicide Motif Makes for a Dark Skeleton Twins

Brother-sister reconciliation story goes to some dark places, and doesn't allow viewers to laugh all of them off.

Dolphin Tale 2 Just Treads Water

The pacing is sluggish, the storytelling predictable. Compared to the original, it's pretty inferior in the inspiration department, too.

The Drop Bottoms Out Early, Never Recovers

Could more accurately be referred to as "The Letdown," and a big one at that. Only manages a small burst of energy before fizzling out.

No Good Deed is Laughably Bad, Needlessly Violent

The timing couldn’t be worse for a thriller full of violence against women. But it probably wouldn't have made much difference anyway.

As with the Rapture, so Too The Remaining: The Best Stuff's Gone from the Get-Go

Most of the movie feels un-scary, unsure of its theology, inconsistent in its methods, but there are a few nuggets of subtle quality.

 
The Identical Surprisingly Un-Identical to Blander Inspirationals

Rather than follow a predictable trajectory of rebellion during the dawn of rock, it takes a refreshing track of spiritual exploration.

Robin Wright Does No Wrong in The Congress

After a promising start, the story lets Wright down in the end by losing the human-interest angle and growing less fascinating visually.

Brosnan More Geriatric Bourne Than Bond in Blasé November Man

Plenty of car chases, moral ambiguity and a serious body count, but this loose adaptation of There Are No Spies falls into no man’s land.

 
Football and Faith Lead When the Game Stands Tall

As well-made a faith-based movie as you're likely to see, with the professional polish you'd expect from a studio-backed film like this.

 
Teen Romance on Life Support in Weepy If I Stay

Nowhere near as intriguing as the novel it's based upon. In fact it feels more like "Touched by an Angel: Teen Edition."

 
Frank Might Leave You Wearing a Puzzled Expression

Plays like an inside joke, offering moments of diversion and offbeat humor but never amounting to anything more than a curiosity.

Second Chapter of Sin City is Still All Style and Little Substance

Tries to cram four stories into just over 90 minutes. Star-studded and easy on the eyes, but lacks a method to its shock-jock madness.

 
The Giver a Fair if Basic Treatise on Societal Control

A parent-friendly thriller that allows a young audience to think about complex ideas and core human values for the first time.

 
What If This Film Had Snappier Dialogue?

On the rom-com scale, scores fair on chemistry between leads, poor on script. Too bad in a sex-free film where marriage is a noble goal.

Cowabunga! Turtles Shells Out Action + Attitude

With fun nods to pop culture and sci-fi classics, it’s a fast-paced, high-action story that takes no prisoners.

 
The Hundred-Foot Journey is Worth the Trip

Not as memorable as fellow 2014 foodie film Chef, but it’s hard to find any major flaws in it. Predictable, but well-played.

Into the Storm Looks Good, Sounds Good, Feels... Blah

Let’s get the inevitable comparison out of the way: Twister, this ain't.
