‘Into the Woods’ is a well-done trip down a well-trod path

‘The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies’ is like a date that goes from bad to awful

You know those really awful dates where everyone tells you this person is amazing and clever and wonderful, but you get there and they’re kind of idiotic and almost offensively boring? You struggle through dinner and as...

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ could have been more than middle of the road

I wonder who it was who looked at the Bible, then at a poster for “Newsies,” then back at the Bible, and was like, “Oh my gosh, guys, great idea.” And, actually, casting Christian Bale as Moses in...

Everyone knows the penguins are the best part of the “Madagascar” franchise. They’re cute, they’re fluffy and they’re diabolical. What’s not to love? At the same time, the idea of giving even highly entertaining supporting characters, even...

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’ rises to the best film of the series yet

You know what I hate? When book adaptations split the last book into two parts. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows and Breaking Dawn — don’t even get me started on “The...
