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

MPAA Rating: "PG" (Mild Violence)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Joe Wright
Cast: Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar, Amanda Seyfried

As a family-oriented adventure film, "Pan" is adequate, although the darkness of the material may make it unsuitable for younger children.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Seth MacFarlane
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Barth, Giovanni Ribisi

The film fumbles its lame narrative and, although some of MacFarlane's jokes are hilarious, they're just blips on the radar.

Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Cast: Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris

The film offers everything one could ask for from popcorn entertainment and its brand of action feels fresh and freewheeling.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Josh Trank
Cast: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Toby Kebbell, Reg E. Cathey

As a superhero movie, it falls into the "adequate" range of the spectrum - neither memorable nor forgettable.

With minimal plot development and far too much running around in dark corridors, "The Scorch Trials" has a poor story:filler ratio.

When film-goers speak of New York-based indies as having become insular and pretentious, "Mistress America" is an example of what they're referring to.
