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.

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.

This is an appetizer and like most meager fare, it doesn't satisfy.

"Age of Ultron" disappoints not because it's irredeemably bad but because it fails to achieve the level of its predecessor in nearly every facet.
