Marvel Studios has never been afraid to let things get a little weird. In a town like Hollywood where the heaviest hitters always play it safe, it is a credit to arguably the heaviest hitter of them all that they bring forward fringe characters from the Marvel Comics universe, hand them off to a com...

There’s something old-fashioned about the “Jack Reacher” sequel “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” and that’s not necessarily a good thing. It is a bare-knuckle action movie built around a single movie star that is competently directed and requires more than its share... [More]

I’m a sucker for a good action/thriller; one that treads a little on the trashy side and feels like it could be based on a novel you would buy at the airport. “The Accountant” is one of those movies, although it is wholly original; skipping the bookstands and coming direct from sc... [More]

Occasionally, a movie will come along that has a greater cultural value than an artistic value. What I mean is it stops mattering how “good” a movie is and instead it becomes about how important it is. “The Birth of a Nation” is a very good, but not great historical drama. B... [More]

It’s hard to imagine a director better suited to adapt Ransom Riggs’ best-selling novel “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” than Tim Burton. This movie is about lovable weirdos and rests at the juncture where gothic horror meets the X-Men. This is so within h... [More]

A movie’s journey to the big screen can be a long and arduous one. Sometimes, a movie can even be completely finished and then sit on a shelf for years at a time due to financial or creative reasons. “Masterminds” is one of those movies. This dim-bulb comedy was originally slated ... [More]

Tales of diamonds in the rough are as old as stories themselves, but when done well, they challenge our preconceptions and inspirationally prove anyone from anywhere is capable of anything. “Queen of Katwe” is an exceptional diamond-in-the-rough tale based on the real-life story of Phio... [More]

It seems pedigree matters when it comes to animated family films. The really good ones rarely come out of left field and typically are a part of a familiar brand like Pixar, Disney or Laika.

There’s not much new you can do with a Western. Even the basic premise behind “The Magnificent Seven” of a town led by heroes defending itself from a ruthless villain has been used so much it has been parodied on multiple occasions (think “Blazing Saddles” and “Th... [More]

We’re all entitled to some occasional, light-hearted, murderous fun from time to time. And there’s no better way to harmlessly indulge in a high body count than the thoroughly enjoyable “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder," playing now through Sept. 25, at the Fox Theat... [More]
