  • 'A Walk Among the Tombstones' is uncommonly well-made thriller

    Starring Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour, Boyd Holbrook, Adam David Thompson, Brian "Astro Bradley; directed by Scott Frank; 114 minutes; rated R for strong violence, disturbing images, language and brief nudity They've done it at last: made a Liam Neeson-stomps-some-behind flick where, as the credits roll, there's more stuff to be...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: 'The Maze' gets lost in overfamiliarity

    This month's "young adults save the future" film franchise is "The Maze Runner," an indifferent quest tale about boys trapped in a gigantic maze with no idea how they got there. A teen boy (Dylan O'Brien) wakes up, screaming, on a freight elevator soaring up to a field, where it promptly drops its "greenie," or newby, into a clatch of rustic...

102 minutes; rated R for disturbing violence, gore, strong language, sexual content Take "The Human Centipede" - the gross-out movie about the mad doctor who stitches humans together - and sprinkle with the old Bob and Doug McKenzie sketches...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: A stellar cast lets 'This is Where I Leave You' leave you laughing

    Starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn; directed by Shawn Levy, screenplay by Jonathan Tropper; 103 minutes; rated R for language, sexual content and some drug use "This is Where I Leave You" is a big, broad dysfunctional family comedy, sort of a "Parenthood" pushed into

  • MOVIE REVIEW: 'Dolphin Tale' sequel holds interest for younger viewers

    You might have thought "Dolphin Tale," the sleeper hit kids' film of a few falls back, was a complete, compact and uplifting story that didn't really need a second act. And if so, you were on the money. A fictionalized account of the true story of Winter, a badly injured dolphin rescued by the Clearwater (Florida) Aquarium, and how a...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: 'The Drop' is a simmering thriller

    They also serve who pour and observe. That's Bob Saginowski's modus operandi. He's bartender-
for-life at Cousin Marv's on the cruel side of Brooklyn, a 30-something loner living in the house his late parents bought. Bob notices things, which we gather is a pretty solid survival strategy for this corner of Brooklyn. There's menace in the...

Some will stop at nothing to stop him. "No Good Deed" - (Thriller, PG-13, 84 minutes) Not reviewed. A woman (Taraji P. Henson) living comfortably in an...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: 'Identical' is just like an old school Elvis Musical - in the worst ways

    A musical mashup of Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis biography and myth, "The Identical" plays like a failed, faith-based "Inside Llewyn Davis." And that's the closest thing to a compliment it will get. Built around a too-tall Elvis impersonator, Blake Rayne, it tells the story of fictional twins separated at birth. One grew up to be Drexel "The...
