The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is Short on Magic

A few genuine laughs along the way as Carell's Burt tries to forge a path forward, but this film’s third act is truly a head-scratcher.

 
The Call Hits Most of the Right Numbers

Proving that sometimes the best ideas are, indeed, the simplest ones, this nervy new thriller dials up a promising first two acts.

 
Oz Not Great but Visually Powerful

A colorful, visually arresting prequel that could have used a bit more story development to justify its 2:10 running time.

 
Dead Man Down Defies a Few Action Movie Stereotypes

As unsatisfying as the conclusion is, the journey itself makes for a pretty fascinating morality tale... as far as action movies go.

 
STUCK is One Part Instruction, One Part Inspiration

More than a documentary, this film is a call to action on behalf of the 10 million children in orphanages worldwide.

 
Christian-Made Lost Medallion Fun but Confusing

Certainly a step in the right direction for the family-friendly genre, but the movie's broad approach holds it back in the end.

 
Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum, Jack the Giant Slayer's Fun

Old-fashioned storytelling and cleverly staged action sequences remind you of old favorites like The Princess Bride and Indiana Jones.

 
Phantom Torpedoes Itself

Somehow, Hollywood has made a submarine thriller that tests our patience and fails to engage the imagination, not an easy thing to do.

Snitch is Action Plus Teachable Moments

Consider it a modern "scared straight" kind of story, one that fathers and sons should consider seeing together.

Escape from Planet Earth is Surprisingly Entertaining

The premise is well-worn and far from original, but the execution of this family-focused story has a few flashes of brilliance.

There's No Safe Haven from Poor Reviews

This Nicholas Sparks adaptation opened on Valentine’s Day but was forgotten by Presidents' Day.

A Good Day to Die Hard Nowhere Close to Series' Standards

The bulk of the film is nothing but elaborate nonsensical action sequences that don’t have any of the yippee-ki-yay of previous efforts.

Nothing Redeeming about Beautiful Creatures

Had I not been required to write this review, I would have walked out an hour before this incoherent Southern Gothic teen romance ended.

Bateman, McCarthy Let Down by Script in Identity Thief

Completely runs out of laughing gas before turning into a dreadfully misguided attempt at personal reformation and redemption.

Side Effects May Include Shock, Dissatisfaction

The final product is strangely unsatisfying, moving into erotic, even perverse areas unsuited to Soderbergh's smooth, cold visual style.

Warm Bodies Warms the Heart

Quirky humor and romantic love are huge parts of this oddly delightful, highly original film’s charm.

What's going on with all the God talk from these aging mobsters having one last night on the town?

Good Adaptation, Performances Can't Hide Parker's Ugly Side

The filmmakers have done justice to the novels, but that’s not to say you should rush out and rent it.

Hardly Bewitching, Hansel & Gretel Fails

It’s not just the fairy tale that gets fractured in this silly, bloody and unnecessary retelling.

Last Stand Exactly What You'd Expect in an Arnold Movie

No one will mistake The Last Stand for anything made in Schwarzenegger’s glory years, but it contains exactly what the audience expects.
