Movie Reviews
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes': Monkey See, Monkey Makes a Sequel
In a perfect circumstance, we would take all the politicians and make them watch director Matt Reeves' "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes."

'Obvious Child': Adulthood the Hard Way
Firm in its resolve, it is an unapologetic, jagged shard of reality that doesn't mince emotions.

'Jersey Boys': Working Its Way Back to You
Even if the director merely had this foursome sing the iconic hits, I'd still probably have to give it a 2 & 1⁄2.

'22 Jump Street': A Leap of Whimsy
As it stands, it is one big inside joke without a punchline, a series of snarky riffs and references with no point other than to suggest that there is no point in having a point.

'A Million Ways to Die in the West': Home, Home on the Raunch
Reminiscent of the style and character Bob Hope fashioned, MacFarlane stars as the Eastern greenhorn paradoxically out of place in the Wild West.

'Chef': Cooks up the Comfort Food of Film
Favreau as the foodie extraordinaire amiably personifies the democratization of Carl's art while serving up big dollops of that indulgent fantasy.

'Godzilla': Big Deal
Culturally, he has become the Big Kitsch, the pink transistor radio of movie monsters.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2': Of Heroes & Hormones
Y'know, J.D., this coming-of-age world saver has a little Holden Caulfield in him.

'Bears': Warm and Fuzzy
Having spent the winter in their den, it's time to eat as well as get educated to the harsh and glorious facts of survival. Delights and dangers await.

"Draft Day": It's a Coin Toss
Now more than ever, the art of the deal plays a major part in the science of winning, which, the thinking is, will enrich the ownership.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier": Leads the Blockbuster Brigade
While the baggage of his time-travel travail causes its angst, we never doubt the altruism of Evans' Steve Rogers.

"Muppets Most Wanted": More or Less
While cameos by movie celebrities have long been a Muppets staple, in this permutation the best lines are reserved for said humans.

"Noah": Not Quite the Living End
For those of a mind, the comparative mulling of human ethics and the religious laws as they've been taught to us affords the gray matter a workout.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel': Strictly 1st Class
Catering to the whims, decadence, power and frailties of those stuck in their gilded time capsules, Monsieur Gustave keeps alive an era.

'Mr. Peabody & Sherman': There's Life in the Old Dog Yet
Regrettably, I didn't see this splendidly animated film with an audience full of 9-year-olds.
