Million Dollar Arm Review

It might be grouchy to complain about Million Dollar Arm, the latest feel good sports drama from Disney, but it’s too astoundingly weak of a film to garner much enthusiasm or find anything really praiseworthy in it.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman Review

It took the better part of 60 years, but finally the work of master animator Jay Ward has a proper big screen adaptation in Rob Minkoff’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It stays faithful to the tone of the original show, delivers all new jokes, enhances the characters without destroying them, and by just updating the material enough so it doesn’t feel like a forced attempt at being hip.

Black Rock Review

Made by people not generally associated with making intense psychological thrillers, Black Rock stands out as a true hidden gem this weekend. A progressive and bone chilling survival drama with a trio of strong female leads, actress and director Katie Aselton teams with frequent collaborator and screenwriter Mark Duplass (Cyrus, Jeff, Who Lives at Home) for a lean and mean revenge flick that stays true to the mumblecore duo’s roots while delivering the genre goods.

In a World Review

Hilarious, spunky, and incredibly human, In a World is the rare kind of rewarding comedy that audiences rarely get. A triumph for first time feature writer, director, and star Lake Bell.
