  • Poltergeist Review
    0.5 stars out of 5: BOO-RING
    It's hard out here for a ghost. Always having to think up new ways to scare suburban people in movies. You make the kids' toys come alive and play creepy music, and all the other ghosts hold up signs with straight 1.5s across the board. You're...

  • Tomorrowland Review
    2.5 stars out of 5: You can fly. Eventually.
    In your initial visit to Tomorrowland, you're not really there at all. That's what scientifically-named Casey Newton (The Longest Ride's Britt Robertson) discovers when she first goes there by touching a tiny, metal, "T"-emblazoned pin. She takes...

  • Pitch Perfect 2 Review
    2.5 stars out of 5: Songs about butts.
    Pitch Perfect 2 begins with a crazy, performance-based, wardrobe malfunction, one that, in the film's words, exposes the "down under" region of one of the a cappella Bellas. For this accidental offense they are mocked, chastised, and stripped of...

  • Mad Max: Fury Road Review
    5.0 stars out of 5: Death to the patriarchy.
    "Who killed the world?" yells a minor character in Mad Max: Fury Road. This outburst comes after an earlier moment where camera pauses on the question painted on a cave wall. And since it's one of only a couple dozen complete and comprehensible...

  • The D Train Review
    1.0 stars out of 5: Stay home.
    Although there is at least one earlier, less sexual, usage of the slang term "the d-train," referring to having a generalized bad experience, lately the expression has become more synonymous with the penis. That's because pop culture always needs...

  • Hot Pursuit Review
    1.0 stars out of 5: Pursue a ticket to a different movie.
    Allow me to mangle Tolstoy for a minute, and say that each good comedy is good in its own way, but that all bad comedies are alike. There's variation, of course, but they all limp along on sad, weak legs and confused direction. They're airless...

  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron Review
    3.5 stars out of 5: Much Avenge About More Things
    They're building a giant machine now, a machine made of movies. To participate in the machine's agenda of taking your money, it will not help to begin by looking at this perpetual motion installment and working backwards, trying to catch up. You...

  • The Water Diviner Review
    1.5 stars out of 5: History written by the winners.
    First-time director Russell Crowe has stepped in it, probably without meaning to. But it's happening all the same. His film, entirely devoted to an exploration of the aftermath of a key, nation-defining battle in Australian war history -- the...

  • The Age of Adaline Review
    2.5 stars out of 5: Proustian mush
    It begins with a shot of the Earth from space, and omniscient narration. (The voice of Hugh Ross, narrator of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, whose low-key, somewhat conspiratorial, post-sincere, NPR reporter tone turns...

  • Little Boy Review
    2.5 stars out of 5: A little much.
    The past few years have seen a marked rise in the number of Christian-themed films getting wide theatrical distribution, but to call it a "new wave" of faith-based cinema is probably inappropriate. That designation is usually reserved for a...
