Amounts to little more than fan service.

What's Good: Seeing your favorite characters back in action again, playing those characters off of some snooty new arrivals, more glitz and glamour, series favorites get more screen time, plays...

Fascinating exploration of deep space and head space.

What's Good: Takes you on an awe-inspiring, yet sentimental journey. Brad Pitt's performance makes it work. Interesting production is equal parts new and familiar. Excellent sound and picture. Disciplined direction....

Another novel-to-film adaptation bites the dust.

What's Good: High production values yield an impressive picture, big name stars play their roles well enough, emotional story. What's Bad: Plot does not translate well...

The golden age of Hollywood is not Tarantino's

What's Good: Another great performance from Leonardo DiCaprio (Brad Pitt isn't bad either), his pairing with Brad Pitt lives up to expectations, fully immersed in the sites and sounds of...

Martial arts satire that hits its mark

What's good: Hilarious script, subversive off-beat approach, great cast with excellent performances, fresh approach to a tired genre, timeless production, creative way to explore a serious topic, unorthodox techniques show...

Men In Black should not be back.

What's Good: Silly sci-fi shenanigans, good cast does decent work, genuinely funny, plays homage to the previous films. What's Bad: Not enough creativity in the writing...

A fun but generic addition to the franchise.

What's Good: Marvel finally gets a female-led film, Brie Larson is a good fit for her role, Samuel L. Jackson is never boring, fun swashbuckling plot, some funny moments, a...

Big eyes, slightly less big thrills.

Disembodied limbs fly across the screen in slow motion. Twisting in flight they spray a synthetic blue blood. A seedy underworld teems with nasty cyborgs, armed to the teeth with...

Vicious historical farce isn't for the faint of heart.

What's Good: Great performance by a great cast, technically compelling direction, lavish production, biting dialogue, witty presentation, perfect balance between comedy and tragedy, unbalanced delivery makes for a challenging picture...

Another movie to make you feel sorry for the current state of politics.

What's Good: Solid if not spectacular performances, interesting story derived from actual events, production really helps transport you to the 1980's, film provides different perspectives on a singular event, draws...
