Captain Underpants

Cars 2

Seen in Disney 3-D. It was bound to happen: a dud for Pixar. Making a sequel to 2006's Cars was always something of a head-scratcher. The original movie, while possessing a certain charm, was among the studio's least inspired efforts and the dea...

Cat in the Hat, The

There is an almost overpowering desire to write this review in the style of Dr. Seuss, but I will resist it - primarily because the end product is more Mike Myers and overblown production design than it is the clever text of one of the most beloved...

Cats

For 2019’s Big Holiday Musical Extravaganza, Hollywood has gone all the way back to 1981 to choose the source material. The concept of making a motion picture version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s immensely successful stage play, Cats, has both...

Chariots of Fire

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

If there is any living director who can do justice to the warped nature of Roald Dahl's "children's stories," it's Tim Burton. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn't the first time these two have "collaborated." Burton produced Henry Selick's anim...

Chasing Mavericks

Chasing Mavericks feels like two completely different movies that have been mashed together. The first, a derivative and unsatisfying coming-of-age story about a Santa Cruz boy and his adopted father figure, seems uncharacteristically weak for the ...
