MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Jack Black stars in Columbia Pictures' "Goosebumps."

Goosebumps

"Goosebumps" is a fun and entertaining ride through Nostalgia-ville, but the film never really truly feels like what the fans deserved.
Geena Davis and Matthew Modine star in Renny Harlin's "Cutthroat Island," the notoriously unpopular 1995 film that once held the world record for most money lost by a film ($105 million).

Class of 1995: ‘Cutthroat Island’

“Cutthroat Island" isn't the landlubber suggested by its bad reputation. But if all involved knew they were going broke, they should have gone for broke.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Philippe Petit in Tri-Star Pictures' "The Walk" — director Robert Zemeckis's 3-D depiction of Petit's legendary walk between the World Trade Center towers.

The Walk

Although cartoonish qualities sometimes belie its confidence, “The Walk” stands solidly on its own as a thoughtful, crowd-pleasing complement to “Man on Wire.”
Jake Gyllenhaal stars as expedition group leader Scott Fischer in "Everest," an adventure drama based on true events and directed by Baltasar Kormakur.

Everest

A technically magnificent, frighteningly immersive and solidly acted drama about the irresistible force of commerce meeting Mother Nature's immovable object.

Chris Pratt stars as a velociraptor trainer in "Jurassic World," a 2015 Universal Pictures release.

Jurassic World

Pulpy summer fun with more on its mind than you'd think, "Jurassic World" is infused with equal danger, intimacy, intelligence and humor.

Film on Vinyl: Jurassic Park

Next up on Film on Vinyl’s playlist: Mondo’s reissue of the "Jurassic Park" soundtrack. It's a review 65 million years in the making.

INTO THE WOODS

Into the Woods

Disney's big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical "Into the Woods" has plenty of charm and charisma to cover the tiredness of the film's premise.
"Seventh Son" (2015) starring Jeff Bridges.

Seventh Son

"Seventh Son," starring Jeff Bridges, is a serviceable sword-and-sorcery movie that offers just enough for genre fans.
