MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Dana (Kristen Connolly) and Holden (Jesse Williams) in THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.

The Cabin in the Woods

Clever and comical, but cold and clinical, "Cabin" is a pleasant, if passionless, puzzle — a fan dance for fanboys that delivers the goods while tweaking them.

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.
THE THREE MUSKETEERS

The Three Musketeers (2011)

Always beautiful to look at, but always an empty shell, "The Three Musketeers" is a busy, noisy gobbledygook of goofy action and dopey dialogue.

Too arty to settle for home-invasion scares and too laughably literal to unsettle with subtext, all that's left is an impressive technical exercise.
