A huge, harmful, insidious, attractive lie.
Heroes like this one are unlikely and unlikable and just like us.
22 Jump Street
The buddy comedy feels a bit recycled the second time around - and it knows it.
Big Hero 6
It's plenty of fun for kids, but it ends up being a good time without ever really being a good movie.
Bridge of Spies
Spielberg and Hanks are captivating and likable, though the film still comes up a little empty.
Man of Steel
Snyder's Superman reboot is visually stunning and well-acted, but lacks the humanity of The Kings of Summer, a little coming-of-age movie with a big heart.
Hollywood is fighting its own Loudness War, and this movie definitely isn’t helping.
A bloody roller coaster with unappealing hills and underwhelming drops.
The Fifth Estate
The movie about Wikileaks is a mess, and a giant missed opportunity.
A movie that's both distinctly American and a bit troubling.
The Lego Movie
The rare (and wonderful) kids' movie that rewards those who come to it like children.
