As a commercial for the game, "Warcraft" works and maybe that’s the yardstick of success against which this film should be measured.

Tina Fey is the biggest asset but even she’s not sufficient to make it worth more than a marginal recommendation.

Without jettisoning the tropes and clichés of the disaster film genre ,"The Wave" provides a little more intelligence and drama.

There are things to like about "The Witch" but not enough of them to make it worth the price of an admission ticket.

"The Walk" is a triumph of special effects but a sluggish first hour prevents it from across-the-board greatness.

"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.

The musical sequences throb with energy and this allows "We Are Your Friends" to maintain its trajectory when its momentum flags.

Despite solid acting and a screenplay that refuses to cater to Hollywood stereotypes, the film is at times a chore to sit through.

So jammed with subplots and secondary characters that it often feels like the Cliffs Notes version of a complex novel.

Two movies in one: one relatable and witty, the other dry and distancing. The second undermines the first.
