June 2013
Frances Ha a Delightful Ode to Late Bloomers

Just as reflective about universal emotional experiences as director Baumbach's previous work, but positively jubilant in comparison.

May 2013
Don't Wait for Tomorrow to See Not Today

In a summer of bloated blockbusters, this is one of the few movies everyone should see because of the message it sends: slavery is real.

 
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.

 
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.

 
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.

 
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.

 
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.

 
Sixth Time Has Charm in Fast & Furious Series

For those who like to celebrate with a good action film, this is the place to start: humor, tension, non-stop action and more.

 
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.

 
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.

May 2013
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 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.

 
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.

 
Upstream Color is Cryptic, Dreamlike Art

Shane Carruth has made a work of art with his second film. I don't understand it, but I don't care, because I'm so viscerally moved.

 
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.

April 2013
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.

 
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).

 
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.

 
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.

 
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.
