‘Draft Day’ takes us behind the NFL curtain

I wasn’t born into a football-loving family, and my attention span is usually too short to sit through an entire game. After watching “Draft Day,” though, I find myself reading up on this year’s top draftees and counting...

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ has punch, well-paced story

I don’t like ice or snow and I hate being cold, but I love winter. “The Winter Soldier,” that is. The much-anticipated sequel to 2011’s “Captain America” is nothing short of marvelous. Steve “Captain America” Rogers (Chris Evans)...

‘Noah’ might be a refresher course in humanity

The first thing you need to know about “Noah” is that, for all the talk of “every thing that creepeth upon the earth” going “two and two unto Noah into the ark,” the animals — and the...

‘Divergent’ pleases both newcomers, big fans

No matter how much I like movies, my love of books seems to come first. This is why I usually cringe when I hear about a book being made into a movie. They’re just not the same,...

With winter squarely in the rear-view mirror, movie studios are gearing up for their blockbusters with a slew of pre-summer movies. The rest of us just call this awkward time between winter and summer “spring,” but whatever....

‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’ is faithful to the original educational shorts of the ’50s, ’60s

“Mr. Peabody and Sherman” is animated, it’s rated PG and it’s got more potty jokes than a 4-year-old comedian, but its subtle lines and historical references are all for a more sophisticated set. For anyone unfamiliar with...

If you don’t overthink the plot, or mind a few leaps in logic, ‘Nonstop’ is not a waste of time

I’m going to try my best to resist making a pun out of this movie’s title. It’s just so hard when it’s called “Nonstop.” There are so many possibilities. I’ll do my best. Bill Marks (Liam Neeson)...

‘Robocop’ feels like a new video game demo

Once while rollerblading with a neighbor as a kid, my neighbor suggested it would be really cool to have rollerblades attached to your legs. I asked him why someone would do that, and he posited that maybe...

Here are some great movie picks to get through bleak mid-winter

Go outside. Look up. Know what those flakes mean? It means we don’t need some temperamental rodent to tell us we’ve still got more winter. When I was a kid, around this time of year, when the...
