RECENT MOVIE REVIEWS
"Pixels," "Southpaw" and "Paper Towns" fail to topple "Ant-Man" at the boxoffice; "Minions" still rolling.
Animated movies are so outstanding these days that merely-good flicks like "Home" have the patina of disappointment about them.
On this week's show Chris reviews "Paper Towns," "Southpaw," "Pixels" plus "What We Do in the Shadows" on video.
Riveting performances by Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker, but "Southpaw" follows the boxing drama template 1-2-3.
A beautiful-looking film that contrasts the amazing Alaskan vistas with the often ugly inner human turmoil.
Movies like "Paper Towns" show us a startling picture of young people as they actually are, rather than how we'd like them to be.
