The movie becomes so obsessed with narrative switchbacks that it comes close to straying into self-parody territory.
With its lazy, somnambulant pace and endless stream of cameos, "Around the World in 80 Days" seems to be unfolding in real time (although it boasts stunning visuals).
A standard-order noir murder mystery with a confused last act, "Anon" is more notable for how it sees the future than what it sees going on there.
The screenplay doesn’t rise to the level of the behind-the-camera craftmanship or the acting.
Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.
It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.
A plot-by-numbers sit-com movie that tries hard (perhaps too hard) to reproduce the elements that made its predecessor successful.
Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.
"The Angry Birds Movie" is like the game - an opportunistic attempt to “strike while the iron is hot” that’s devoid of elements that would give it an extended life.
"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.
