Midnight Special

An engaging and offbeat supernatural mystery/thriller featuring some fine actors, and boasting a verve of originality so often missing from this genre.

Midnight Special

Part ode to early Spielberg, part terse rumination on Otherness, "Midnight Special" is a worthy film that is a little too meagerly with its emotions.

Black Mass (2015)

The Blu-ray release of "Black Mass" is worth a rental, even if it's only to see the wonderful performance by Johnny Depp.

Another Take: Black Mass

Scott Cooper’s new film, “Black Mass,” is a tight, well-written gangster saga that somehow left me feeling a little underwhelmed.

Rebecca Hall, Jason Bateman and Joel Edgerton (who also wrote and directed) star in "The Gift," a 2015 psychological thriller from STX Entertainment.

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Ridley Scott's version of "The Ten Commandments" has no reason for existing, and we needn't bother watching it.

Wish You Were Here

While the ending is a little too tidy, "Wish You Were Here" is a tight thriller anchored by a strong performance from Joel Edgerton.

The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann's take on the great American novel is flawed but compelling, bursting with passion missing from previous cinematic adaptations.

The Great Gatsby

Oversized and ambitious, "The Great Gatsby" better captures the passions and human conflict of Fitzgerald's book than previous film adaptations.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

"The Odd Life of Timothy Green" is not so much odd as it is just boring. A blu ray stocking stuffer sure to be re-gifted this holiday season.
