Winter's Tale More Mystifying Than Magical

What seemed like it might be a fantastic, magical story feels awkwardly stitched together, even laughable when not outright confusing.

About Last Night Remake Neither Romantic nor Comedic

If your idea of romantic comedy is that profanity equals hilarity, drunkenness equals happiness and sex equals love, this is for you.

RoboCop Reboot Looks Cool but Still Isn't Worth Revisiting

A lot has changed in nearly three decades, but there's simply not much need for a RoboCop reboot. Audiences have been there, seen that.

Everything Stacks Up Superbly in The Lego Movie

This rapid-fire laugh machine is a wildly inventive, highly enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining family film when we least expect it.

The Monuments Men is an Entertaining, Skilled Throwback

The patriotic schmaltz feels right. If we can't be sentimental about preserving culture, we've lost touch with what these characters did.

Labor Day is a Big, Gooey Mess of a Movie

Director Reitman finally has a real stinker on his resumé with this sappy, schlocky film. Even Nicholas Sparks would scratch his head.

That Awkward Moment Takes Casual Approach to Rough Content

Hard to care much about any of the lazy, libidinous characters, especially when so much time is spent on the least interesting of them.

I, Frankenstein is Anything but Alive

Not even amusing in a "so-bad-it's-good" way. Should be the nail in the coffin of non-superhero comic book adaptations, but it won't be.

Unearned Ending Aside, Pro-Life Gimme Shelter Works

Not quite a documentary, but has an unflinching, realistic feel right til the end when it turns into a Lifetime movie with a bow on top.

Not Much to Crunch on in Forgettable Nut Job

Pretty much what Saturday morning cartoons would have been back in the day if they had been 90 minutes long and available in 3D.

Jack Ryan Reboots with Mixed Results

Has enough potential that it need not take another decade to develop the next chapter in Jack Ryan's cinematic story.

Strong Acting Can't Save Soap Opera Hysterics of August: Osage County

Watching these familiar faces shout, scream and degrade each other at dinner for hours probably isn't most people’s idea of a good time.

Lone Survivor Contains More Surprises Than Title Suggests

Berg's thematic explorations of courage, fear, integrity and sacrifice feel like introspective meditations rather than formulaic beats.

 
The Legend of Hercules is Epic... Epically Bad

If only it had been clever. Or well-acted. Or better conceived. As is, it's even worse than you might expect.

Exciting Finale not Enough to Save Lumbering 47 Ronin

More often dull, listless, and unengaging than outright bad or painful to watch, though its Eastern witchcraft may be bothersome to some.

Blatant Commercialism Can’t Sink Sweet Walter Mitty

A comedy that deals with serious themes but manages to stay light enough on its feet that any moments of heavy-handedness are forgivable.

Imperfect Mandela Boasts Worthy Performances and Ideals

Takes a lionizing and fairly standard look at the life of the South African revolutionary, contextualizing debated aspects of his life.

 
Grudge Match Boxes Ears without Warming Hearts

The winner is...? Certainly not the audience. Could have been fun were it not for the thick layer of smut coating virtually every scene.

Man's Depravity Knows No Bounds in The Wolf of Wall Street

In true Martin Scorsese fashion, The Wolf of Wall Street is yet another demented tale about Man at his most dark and depraved.

There's Something About Her, but There's Also Something Missing

Stimulates our mind more than it stirs our spirits or pulls our heartstrings; more of a discussion than a heartfelt experience.
