Selma Movie Review

The march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, was a momentous moment in American history. Ava DuVernay's "Selma" more than does it justice.

American Sniper Movie Review

Clint Eastwood's examination of America's most famous sniper is great when it's showing war, and okay when it isn't.

Leviathan Movie Review

Russia's entry to the Academy for Best Foreign Film has made it to the final five, but the borscht ring is probably out of reach.

Blackhat Movie Review

No one wants to see a movie about people sitting at computer terminals. Unless it’s "WarGames". This isn’t "WarGames".

Unbroken Movie Review

Angelina Jolie's attempt at portraying the amazing life of Louis Zamperini is good, but falls short of the book.

Mr. Turner Movie Review

A famous British painter's life is immortalized and it features an outstanding performance by Timothy Spall, but that's not enough to elevate this film to the next level.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Movie Review

Rarely has a final battle been so anticlimactic (or padding been so apparent).

Inherent Vice Movie Review

The first film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel stays true to the spirit of the source material which proves to be both a virtue and a vice.

Exodus: Gods and Kings Movie Review

Ridley Scott's new take on the Old Testament never justifies the miracle of its own existence.

Wild Movie Review

Reese Witherspoon stars as a young woman who goes on a long walk to clear her head. It's really just a long walk.
