It might be possible to make a gripping film about the 2010 mining disaster but "The 33" isn’t it.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Release Date: 2015-04-24
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Fantasy
Director: Lee Toland Krieger
Cast: Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Ellen Burstyn, Harrison Ford, Kathy Baker

The movie takes a detour into Nicholas Sparks territory and never fully recovers.

It's hard to find a level on which "Aloha" works. It's a murky, muddled mess.

The movie is replete with bloody encounters, sly asides, and one-liners, but the tone is awkward and uneven.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2016-01-08
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Nudity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Animated/Drama
Director: Charlie Kaufman, Duke Johnson
Cast: Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Thewlis, Tom Noonan

Charlie Kaufman at his best and worst, but at the very least a discussion-worthy animated feature.

Run Time: 1:57
U.S. Release Date: 2015-07-17
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Michael Pena

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.

Using gallows humor, likable protagonists, and a variety of nonstandard filmmaking techniques, director Adam McKay maintains a high level of energy for more than two hours.

Run Time: 2:04
U.S. Release Date: 2016-05-13
MPAA Rating: "R" (Nudity, Sexual Content, Profanity, Violence)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Luca Guardagnino
Cast: Matthias Schoenarts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson

Despite a strong cast, gorgeous cinematography, and a suffocating sense of sexual tension, this movie takes far too long to get off the ground.

Johnny Depp brings Whitey Bulger to life with force and flair that allow us to forgive the movie's narrative shortcomings.
