Written by

Leonardo DiCaprio certainly undergoes a tremendous physical and emotional ordeal in The Revenant, Alejandro G. Inarritu’s follow-up to his highly praised Birdman.

Reviews of Spotlight; Spectre

Written by

Spotlight, from director Tom McCarthy is a compelling account of how, in 2001, the “Spotlight” team of reporters from the Boston Globe uncovered numerous reports of child abuse by Boston’s Catholic priests, as well as the system-wide cover-up of said abuse by shuttling these clergymen from parish to parish, after a designated period of “sick leave.”

Steve Jobs

Written by

Steve Jobs, from writer Aaron Sorkin and director Danny Boyle, is a busy three act drama that packs in a fair amount of entertainment value while trying in vain to disguise the fact that far from being innovative and profound, this film is really at heart, a conventional family drama and a tribute of sorts to all that is Steve Jobs.

Movie Review: Black Mass; Sicario

Written by


Black Mass, from director Scott Cooper, is a hard-hitting crime drama and a welcome return to form for Johnny Depp, as he emerges from a self-induced acting coma (nothing else can explain Mordecai) to create a memorable portrait of career criminal and South Boston hero figure James “Whitey” Bulger.

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.

Reviews of Terminator Genisys; Inside Out

Written by

Arnold Schwarzenegger is ba-a-ack in his signature role for Terminator Genisys, but the question you may have by the end is why anybody bothered.

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.


The future is once again playing at your multiplex, but it could also be the present, with isolated warring factions amidst a parched wasteland and rapacious leaders who bully the underprivileged masses by hoarding all manner of resources, including water and gasoline.

Review of Avengers: Age of Ultron

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).
