Grandma; A Walk in the Woods; Learning to Drive

Written by

If you’ve seen Lily Tomlin in …just about anything---ever, you’ll find her performance is often the best thing, whether it’s Robert Altman’s Nashville or the new Netflix series Grace and Frankie (a well-deserved second season is on its way), or her supporting turn in Paul Weitz’ Admission.

Reviews of Antman; Trainwreck; Mr. Holmes

Written by

Part superhero movie, part caper film, part dysfunctional family movie (everyone’s got issues), Antman is a nice surprise, an enjoyable entry in the Marvel superhero series that is seemingly taking over the cinematic galaxy.

Review of Jurassic World; Entourage

Written by

Jurassic World has it all, as rampaging dinosaurs chow down on theme park visitors and employees alike, while Vincent D’Onofrio gets to chew up a lot of scenery.

Written by

Avengers: Age of Ultron has plenty of fireworks, as befits a movie with no fewer than seven superheroes, a few more superheroes in waiting, some minor bad guys, and one very major villain at the core.

While We’re Young; Woman in Gold

Written by

Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young is at its best in the early going, as it explores the emerging relationship between a middle-aged, childless couple (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) and an affectionate, energetic younger couple (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried).

Courage and Kindness: Cinderella; Insurgent

Written by

Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (I never thought I’d use those three words in tandem) turns out to be a visually sumptuous, beautifully scored (Patrick Doyle), and altogether enjoyable rendition of Charles Perrault’s well-known fairy tale, as adapted by Chris Weitz and fairly light on the Grimm.
