Finding Vivian Maier Movie Review

A small purchase at an auction turns into the emergence of a newly-famous photographer. Great story. Great photos. Good film.

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".

David's Top Ten Films of 2014

David picks his Top Ten Films of 2014.

Unbroken Movie Review

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

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.

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.
