Dark Comedy The Family More Dark Than Comedy

The appealing cast and well-executed comic timing can't mask the repulsive core of this ugly tale.

When a movie titled after a character's name is more interesting when that character isn't on screen, that's a problem.

Unoriginal Closed Circuit a Decent Alternative

Intelligent, but not smart enough; appealing, but nothing really stands out. It's more Masterpiece Theater than major studio release.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints is Beautiful but Exhausting

A truly beautiful film about an outlaw, but one can’t shake the feeling that it's the exhaustive visual equivalent of a sad country song.

 
Neither Soaring nor Crashing, Planes Just Kinda Glides

Not bad, but not awesome, and definitely below Disney standards for quality. It's cute, funny, sweet, and forgettable.
