Review: Their Finest

posted: 04/28/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

There's a lot to admire about some British movies made during World War II, while Germany was bombing major cities like London. It was a wonder the films were made at all when a stray V2 rocket could have wiped out the filmmakers.

Review: Jungle fever

In The Lost City of Z, a lush, melancholic story of discovery and mystery, a mesmerizing Charlie Hunnam plays a British adventurer in the Amazon who is consumed by "all the glories of exploration," as Joseph Conrad once wrote of a different journey. Enveloped by the forest, the explorer and his crew face snakes, piranhas, insects and that most terrifying of threats: other people, who at times bombard the strangers with arrows.

Review: The Promise

posted: 04/21/2017 1:50 a.m. Discuss

Like its stylistic first-cousin, the bio-pic, sweeping epics very often suffer from their inflated scope, attempting to condense an enormous amount of information and story down to a small, finite series of stilted and obligatory scenes in which every point is telegraphed, and every detail is in direct service to the sprawling plot.

Review: Free Fire

posted: 04/21/2017 1:50 a.m. Discuss

If Quentin Tarantino has taught us anything (debatable), it's that restraint is a front for less committed artists to hide behind, separating them from true genius. In other words, if you're going to all the trouble to make an outrageous, amoral shoot'em-up, you might as well take it all the way. In any event, Ben Wheatley certainly got the memo. His gonzo action epic plays like Reservoir Dumbasses: It dances like no one's watching, and covers the muddy tarmac in spent bullet casings.

Review: Born in China

posted: 04/21/2017 1:48 a.m. Discuss

Capitalizing on the annual observance of Earth Day on Saturday, the seventh film in Disneynature's documentary series features a principal cast consisting of three iconic species of bears, wildcats and monkeys native to western China.

Review: Gifted

posted: 04/21/2017 1:48 a.m. Discuss

Watching Gifted, it was easy to imagine the performers practicing award speeches while waiting to deliver their next line. These speeches -- that none of them will ever get to make -- might have made better listening than the movie's dialogue.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm graduating from high school in a couple of months, and I don't have any idea what to do next. My parents are pressuring me to go to college, but I can't get excited about it. I know you'll tell me to seek God's will, but how will I know it?
