Drive

Finding Dory

I'll Do Anything

Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World

Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World is a great title with a great premise for a not so great film. The comedy of Albert Brooks is delicate stuff - self-deprecating one-liners that need the perfect context to generate laughter. Films like Mothe...

Most Violent Year, A

Secret Life of Pets, The

About 20 minutes into The Secret Life of Pets, an entertaining but inconsequential animated movie, I was struck by a powerful feeling of déjà vu. It didn’t take long for me to ascertain the cause. The Secret of Pets is pretty much...
