MOVIE REVIEWS
 
William of Baskerville (Sean Connery) and Adso of Melk (Christian Slater) contemplate clues to a murder in "The Name of the Rose," a 1986 adaptation of Umberto Eco's novel.

Class of 1986: ‘The Name of the Rose’

Umberto Eco's assessment of this movie is unkind, but his book hasn't been stripped down to a tawdry whodunit. Here, the whydunit matters as much, if not more.

Britt Marling and Michael Pitt in I Origins

I Origins

A quiet film that says a lot, "I Origins" is more than it seems.

Devil’s Due

"Devil's Due" offers no surprises and seems comfortable with being merely a serviceable found-footage horror movie.

The Purge

A shotgun marriage between real and fictional fearmongering that invites you to the wedding, lets you decide on which side to sit, and definitely omits a sermon.

The Last Exorcism Part II

Hopefully, given the title, this is indeed The (very) Last Exorcism.

An Ordinary Family

A fun dip in the family swimming pool, and we don't even have to bring any bean dip.

Higher Ground

Vera Farmiga picks a difficult but satisfying tale about religious isolation as her directorial debut.

Natural Selection

A provocative, enlightening and interesting film, "Natural Selection" is a film that isn't afraid to take dramatic risks.
