Review: “Nightcrawler”

More character study than thriller, “Nightcrawler” is riveting thanks to the talents of its star, Jake Gyllenhaal.

Review: “The Good Lie”

Earnest and heartfelt, “The Good Lie” is a fine film inspired by true stories of courage, survival, and loss.

Review: “The Equalizer”

Smart, stylish, and entertaining from open to close, “The Equalizer” works thanks to yet another powerhouse Denzel Washington performance.

Review: “The Drop”

“The Drop” is intense, riveting, and as good a character-driven crime drama as any other released this past year.

Review: “Get On Up”

“Get on Up” entertains and enthralls because just like its subject, the late James Brown, it’s not afraid to break the rules.
