Alice through the Looking Glass

Alice through the Looking Glass may represent Disney’s first big-budget failure in quite some time. More likely to inspire thoughts of Michael Bay than Lewis Carroll, this sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland borrows sparingly ...

Amazing Grace

As a history lesson, Amazing Grace is okay. It stays reasonably true to the established record with minimal embellishment. However, as motion picture, the film is lacking in several key areas. The presentation is choppy, with lengthy sections dev...

Amelia

Mira Nair's Amelia is a by-the-book bio-pic. By following the template, it's as safe and straightforward as one could possibly get, without narrative flourishes and with minimal exaggeration to satisfy Hollywood's appetite for fictionalization. Th...

Angry Birds Movie 2, The

Put The Angry Birds Movie 2 into the basket of sequels that no one was asking for. Three years ago, it made (business) sense to release The Angry Birds Movie. That film helped boost the Angry Birds brand, which had already infiltrated almost e...

Angry Birds Movie, The

Calling The Angry Birds Movie an “animated film” is giving it airs. It’s a cartoon. Deal with it. Family-friendly motion pictures, whether live action or computer-drawn (the hand-drawn versions are no longer being made), fall into one of sev...

Annie

Most remakes are unnecessary but Annie is a bigger offender than many. Reeking of redundancy, the film not only proves incapable of overcoming the inevitable sense of déjà vu but, despite a host of cosmetic changes, it fails to answer the questio...

Annie Hall

In today’s climate, it may no longer be in vogue to offer a laudatory assessment of Woody Allen’s 1977 Oscar-winner, Annie Hall but, dammit, this is a really good movie and doesn’t deserve the opprobrium it sometimes receives because of ...

Ant Bully, The

The Ant Bully is a sore disappointment to anyone hoping for a turnaround to the recent downward quality spiral of animated films. In fact, this movie may represent a new nadir for 3D animation. Although it's pretty enough to look at (although now...

Antz

In the Magic Kingdom, they must be getting nervous. For years, Disney has had a death grip on the animated market, but, as we enter the latter years of the 1990s, the corporation that gave us Bambi and Snow White is finding their dominance cha...

Apollo 13

For those too young to recall the tragic events of November 22, 1963, one of the most stark and enduring images of a lifetime came on a frigid afternoon in January 1986 when the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up while skyrocketing heavenward. By th...
