‘Zip and Zap’ is more than worth your time

It’s not often I review something that won’t be imminently coming to local theaters. But in the case of “Zip and Zap and the Marble Gang,” I feel like making an exception. Part of the first-ever “Sundance...

‘Cultured swines’ to crammed bus rides, Sundance is all worth it

It may be one of the biggest film festivals in the world, but I would not like to live in Park City when Sundance rolls around. I mean, a week or so of seeing celebrities as you’re...

Gangnam Style aside, kids should, well, go nuts for ‘The Nut Job’

What happens when anthropomorphic animals and a crew of gangsters try to pull off the same kind of heist at the same time? Oppa Gangnam style. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Surly Squirrel (voiced by Will...

‘Lone Survivor’ is a tense, patriotic thriller that’s big on accuracy

‘Grudge Match’ makes up for its flaws and adds up to a solid knock-out

The thing about sports movies is you’re supposed to root for the hero. It makes it easy to choose sides. “Grudge Match” does a good job of making it hard by making its opponents both pretty fleshed...

There’s plenty to laugh about in ‘Anchorman 2’

It seems like with Ron Burgandy, you either love him or you hate him. There’s a middle ground, but it’s pretty slim. In this sequel to the 2004 hit, “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy,” his appeal...

‘Hobbit’ sequel might leave fans feeling burned

I’ve always kind of felt like the second of the three “Hobbit” movies would kind of make or break the trilogy. Better get sweeping. Picking up shortly after “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ended, “The Hobbit: The...

‘Frozen’ is a lighthearted, timely adventure

Disney’s newest movie is a fun, frosty adventure, but its songs might leave audiences cold. Get the theater to fast-forward through those and you’ll be fine. Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s tale “The Snow Queen,” “Frozen”...
