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.

 
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).

April 2013
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.

 
Derivative Oblivion Moves Too Slowly

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

 
By-the-Numbers 42 Still Hits for the Cycle

Like The Blind Side, faith is integral and is presented unapologetically. And like The Blind Side, 42 isn't appropriate for all ages.

 
Into the White a Stark Tale of Enemy-Friendship

Does nothing original while exploring an age-old question about what makes humans enemies, but manages to hold our interest anyway.

 
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.

 
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.

 
Place Beyond the Pines is Both Bleak and Beguiling

If points were awarded strictly on ambition, it's nothing short of epic. Unfortunately, director Clanfrance doesn't know when to say when.

 
Classic Jurassic Park Will Never Go Extinct

20 years ago this film set a new cinematic standard and, perhaps most amazing of all, it still meets our standards today.
