Sausage Party

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's "Book of Mormon" moment — a marvelously animated, ecumenically equal-opportunity offender with hope, heart, humor, heroism & heft.
The life and death of soul singer Amy Winehouse is documented in the new movie "Amy" (2015).

Amy

The turbulent and tragic life and death of soul singer Amy Winehouse is laid bare with shocking clarity in "Amy," a new documentary biopic directed by Asif Kapadia.

Hot Pursuit

Texas is a big state. By the time the credits roll on "Hot Pursuit," you'll feel like you've crossed it by car and taken the scenic route.

Sabotage

A cacophonous, purposeless mishmash of mayhem and murder whose stink nestles in the nostrils while asking far too much of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Class of 1983: “Scarface”

A dishonest character choice sets "Scarface" back, but it's still a bleakly funny, compulsively watchable template for the criminal deconstruction of the American Dream.

Class of 1993: “Carlito’s Way”

With unexpected humanism and a dynamic Al Pacino performance, "Carlito's Way" remains the best film of Brian De Palma's compelling, often confounding, career.

Snitch

The Rock serves up some vigilante justice in "Snitch." Unfortunately, the schizophrenic plot muddles any and all potential for social commentary.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “Live and Let Die”

Roger Moore would have higher highs and lower lows. Still, "Live and Let Die" is a fine introduction to a 007 more prone to crack wise than crack heads.

Savages

A modern day "Romeo & Juliet" tale as told by Oliver Stone, "Savages" is every bit as violent as it is mediocre.
21 JUMP STREET

21 Jump Street

Channing Tatum is an unexpected riot. The script has some fun, winking touches. The film is brazen, brash and blustery. Too bad it's not more of a blast.

Project X

Far less ambitious and audacious than it thinks it is, "Project X" is the sort of party where there's too much booting and not enough rallying.

Contraband

This unexpectedly shrewd and efficient, if imperfect, Murphy's Law thriller is probably as close to that "Italian Job" sequel as Mark Wahlberg will ever get.
