Movie Reviews
'Southpaw': Winner by a Split Decision
This proves tailor made for Gyllenhaal's star turn in a very ambitious, noteworthy portrayal that reaffirms his thespic excellence.

'Trainwreck': What Raillery
While moral motifs are of course exaggerated, there is nonetheless a clever and time capsule-worthy parody of the present.

'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl': Growing Up, the Hard Way
The flood of lovingly etched teenaged sensibilities in Jesse Andrews' screenplay, adapted from his novel, recall a mien that can only be called Salingeresque.

Our Neighbors: The Tragic Fall of Robert Hunter
On a fine spring day in April 1891, Robert and four friends went on an outing to go fishing and pick wildflowers.

'Terminator Genisys': Well, He Said He'd Be Back
Yep, "I'll be back," especially if uttered with a deep, Austrian accent, never fails to get an acknowledging laugh.

'Ted 2': Raunchier Than the Average Bear
Pretensions noted and quickly dismissed, the allegorical relevance of Ted's plight as a subjugated minority manages a heartfelt tone.

'Inside Out': Out and Out Insightful
Affectionately drawn to match their callings, they are a funny bunch of friendly adversaries, all dedicated to what they think is best for their dear girl.

'Jurassic World': Just When You Thought it was Safe
So here we mere mortals are again, paying no mind to those before us who messed with Mother Nature and unleashed gosh knows what wrath.

'Far From the Madding Crowd': Cinema Sanctuary
Beneath what initially may seem like fuddy-duddy prattle to young viewers shouts the realities of their own generation: Talent is nice, but money and class talk.

'Tomorrowland': Mediocre Expectations
It is a rather wispily imagined locale, dotted with zooming urban aircraft, swirling sky roadways and vague, unconvincing backdrops.

'Mad Max: Fury Road': Insane Is More Like it
Suffice it to note, whereas some dramas are character driven, the eccentric personae here make "Mad Max" No. 4 oddity driven.

'5 Flights Up': A Cut Above


'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Had Me Showing My Age
So the short review is, unless you're a diehard fan or video games are your second language, save yourself.

'Ex Machina': It's Alive! It's Alive! Maybe
This includes much philosophical pondering: What exactly is human consciousness? And while we're at, what's the secret of life?

'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2': Bargain Basement Bull
It's dependent on its loyal audience's acceptance of mediocrity for the sake of all too few laughs.
