This is like no superhero movie we have ever before seen. Nor is there likely to be another one of this sort anytime soon.

Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Release Date: 2017-02-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Chris McKay
Cast: Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, Ralph Fiennes

Witty, bright, and makes a great contrast/alternative to DC’s current line of serious live-action films.

Anyone who’s up for something ominous and unsettling could do worse than to choose "Life".

While "Logan Lucky" is 3/4ths of a very good movie, the final half-hour becomes narratively unfocused as it strives to tie up some loose ends.

Run Time: 2:05

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne, J. Quinton Johnson

A thoughtful meditation about war and surviving in its aftermath.

Highlighted by an awards-worthy performance by Saoirse Ronan and structured around a light, witty script, the movie delivers a coming-of-age snapshot.

Director Harbaugh presents grief as it is, in all its pain and ugliness, rather than using the convenient, uplifting short-hand that Hollywood prefers.

Run Time: 1:33

An ensemble of solid performances with some affecting moments is ultimately undone by a storyline that treads too-common ground for American indie films.

Despite the occasionally uneven pacing and some dramatically inert moments, the historical elements mesh effectively with the fictionalized action-oriented ones.
