Movie Reviews
'Exodus: Gods and Kings': And Frogs, Too
Technically, it couldn't be much more convincing. Problem is, most of us aren't sure what we want from this retelling.

'The Theory of Everything': Just a Matter of Time
There is an especially admirable civility here that is in itself a worthwhile goal.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1': Undernourished
It's all just rehashed poli sci 101, a refresher course for those who don't quite remember their Machiavelli.

'Dumb and Dumber To': It Sure Is
It takes some pretty smart writing to make the title characters appear as stupid as they are in "Dumb and Dumber To."

'Interstellar': Relatively Far Out
But as Flash Gordon once said in an episode when the Earth's fate hung on his heroism, it's worth a try.

'Nightcrawler': Uneasy Does It
That chillingly public service message aside, this is an action-packed, absorbing and hauntingly exciting delve into the underbelly of modern broadcast journalism.

'St. Vincent': Absolved of All its Sins
Smart writing by Melfi, with just the right touch of quirkiness and a smattering of running gags, draws us into the scenario.

'Fury': Proves Term ‘Great War Movie' is an Oxymoron
We fear how this might end, but nonetheless hope that the quirky, ragtag crew with whom we've become acquainted will survive this unthinkable scourge.

'The Judge': In Defense of Sentiment
Now, if you think this plot takes its cue from the horse that knows its way back to the barn, well, you're initially right.

'Gone Girl': Gives You a Run for Your Money
By this time, we are adrift and at a total loss as to what gives, a feeling director Fincher repeatedly engenders with devilish success.

'The Skeleton Twins': Cuts to the Bone
But I will allow that Maggie and Milo are haunted from the dark recesses of what they care to remember.

'This is Where I Leave You': Sibling Reveries
Each suffers a recognizable travail which the movie mulls to death.

'The Drop': Tells a Low-Down Tale
Whether Bob and Nadia know it or not, romance attempts to gift the sordid air with its hopeful fragrance.

'Cantinflas': Rags to Riches, Mexican Style
Granted, director de Amo's studious and competent homage relates a long overdue chapter in movie lore.

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For': Graphic, Indeed
Here, much of the suspense is dispensed with, the buckets of blood unabashedly spoon-fed to whomsoever wishes to lap it up.
