Hail, Caesar! Blu-ray Review

The Coen bros may not be at the top of their game for Hail, Caesar!, but even a minor work from these major filmmakers is worth a second (or third) look.

Unbroken Review

Equally overlong and underdeveloped, Angelina Jolie's WWII biopic Unbroken squanders an unfathomable amount of first rate talent in front of and behind the camera.

Prisoners Review

Gorgeously shot and impeccably directed by Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, Prisoners still has a bit too much going on across its two and a half hour running time. It never fully bogs down until it becomes a completely different – and sadly far less satisfying – movie in its final 40 minutes.

The Croods Review

Far from the “Ice Age with humans” pitch made by the film’s ad campaign, The Croods is an exceptional family adventure that rises above a plot cribbed from countless Disney films to create something special. It’s a funny, vibrant, and surprisingly thoughtful and sincere effort from the makers of the equally great How to Train Your Dragon with action scenes as good as anything that wowed audiences in Rango.

Skyfall Review

Skyfall is one hell of a movie going experience—the best entry in the James Bond franchise without a shadow of a doubt.
