Oblivion

"Oblivion" makes some ill-advised narrative decisions and largely wastes Tom Cruise, but a curious combination of analog patience and digital prowess saves it.

Olympus Has Fallen - inside

Dark Knight Rises - inside

The Dark Knight Rises

The final chapter of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy ends not with a bang but an allegory.

Street Smart - inside
