Movies starring Reese Witherspoon

Inherent Vice

At first glance, Inherent Vice might seem to be a detective story. Look a little closer, however, and it becomes clear that this is Paul Thomas Anderson's idea of a comedy. There's slapstick, lowbrow material, and enough strange characters an...

If this is the brave new world to which 3D is transporting us, stop the merry-go-'round. I want to get off. Monsters vs. Aliens, one of the 2009 big movies designed to highlight where 3D could transport audiences, is an example of technology ru...

Rendition

Much as I might like to, I cannot heap praise upon director Gavin Hood's Rendition, a political thriller with aspirations of being so much more that it is. The film treads into the minefield of debate that exists surrounding the question of Constit...

Sing, the final major animated film of 2016, can be described using six words: great soundtrack, generic story and artwork. After enjoying Disney/Pixar’s strong animated slate this year (Zootopia, Finding Dory, Moana) with Focus’ Kubo and...
