Review: “Focus”

Will Smith returns in top form in “Focus”, a shell game of a film that will keep you second guessing yourself every time you think you know how it’s going to end.

Review: “McFarland, USA”

Yes, it’s another Kevin Costner sports movie, but don’t let that turn you away from “McFarland, USA.” Earnestly told and beautifully shot, it’s a remarkable story that’s worth your time and attention.

Review: “Fifty Shades Of Grey”

“Fifty Shades of Grey” is a rare example of a film that vastly improves upon and is far more enjoyable an experience than the book it is based on.

Review: “Kingsman: The Secret Service”

As a sly and self-aware homage to beloved spy films past and present, and as a slick and stylish action thriller with a definite subversive streak, “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is easily the most fun to be had at the box office so far this year.

Review: “Seventh Son”

“Seventh Son” is slightly better than the usual schlock period action or epic fantasy films found in theaters in January or February, but only slightly.

Review: “Mortdecai”

“Mortdecai” is goofy, over-the-top fun thanks to Johnny Depp and to director David Koepp’s efforts to keep the running gags and physical comedy rolling at a good clip.

Review: “Blackhat”

“Blackhat” features all the visual artistry we’ve come to expect from a Michael Mann film, but none of the coherence.
