Title Aside, Only God Forgives Isn't Spiritually Edifying

There is neither grace nor forgiveness here, only revenge. In this story of a fight between man and 'god' it’s not clear who wins.

 
Cute Turbo Coulda Used More Torque

An impossibly cute but decidedly conventional story about striving for the seemingly impossible dream.

 
Nothing Grown Up - or Funny - about Grown Ups 2

What on earth did they do to earn their paychecks, sit around and drink beer all day until they came up with recurring plot points?

 
Pacific Rim Looks Solid but Rings Hollow

Had promise, considering del Toro, of being the rare big-budget film to fire on all cylinders, but alas, it's dumb, loud and predictable.

 
The Lone Ranger is a Wild, Wild Mess

The last half-hour is exactly what we want a summer movie to be, but we have to sit through two hours of utter tedium to get there.

 
Despicable Me 2 Delivers More Than Expected

Plain and simple, a kid's movie: lots of fun to watch, the colors are bright, the laughs are many.

June 2013
Copperhead is Truly the Civil War Film for Today

Tells a desperately important, underacknowledged tale of American history, specifically for politically active modern Christians.

 
The Heat's Rap Sheet: Funny but Endlessly Profane

Laughs are consistent and abundant in this all-female take on the cop buddy genre. So are the f-bombs and misuses of God's name.

 
White House Down Gets No Thumbs Up

May prove to be a classic example where film critics and the masses part ways, as there is much to pick on but there were also cheers.

 
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.

June 2013
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.

 
Monsters University: The Parental Guidance of Pixar Movies

Not even close to being on par with Pixar's Toy Story sequels, but a genial nature and thoroughgoing inoffensiveness make it palatable.

 
Tired Action Scenes Aside, Man of Steel is Serious, Substantial

Clear parallels to the life of Christ and themes of sacrifice, redemption and love elevate Superman's story above mere entertainment.

 
Before Midnight Beautifully Caps Trilogy Capturing Life, Love

Love is still central in this trilogy's third act, but now so much more life has been lived, and consequences can be Love’s kryptonite.

 
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.

 
Lewd Humor Tarnishes The Internship's Underdog Story

If you can tear your eyes from the geeked-out Google campus long enough to ponder the plot, you’ll realize you've seen this story before.

 
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.
