One of the more overpraised films of 2014, "Foxcatcher" is a deeply odd character exploration that eventually gets lost in its own dirge-like fog.
A masterpiece of mood that subverts expectations of explosive moments and steadily simmers under your skin.
"Anchorman 2" is more of the same, which is to say uproarious laughter interspersed between epic long, dull stretches.
Are three or four really tremendous laughs worth a 10-spot and two hours of your time? I vote no, and I got to see "Anchorman 2" for free.
Unambitious but entertaining, "Despicable Me 2" reprises the original with cool gadgets, plus a little romance for Gru.
Despite popular protestations to the contrary, "The Office" still had plenty of comedic juice during its final season.
Surprisingly subtle within a genre steeped in sap, this summer vacation dramedy is often refreshingly reserved, but it also proves that less isn't always more.
More of the same: a light, amusing, rather unambitious but agreeable piece of entertainment for little kiddies and patient parents.
With the exception of a few throwaway bits, the only convincing bit of hocus pocus in this comedy is the one that makes all the laughs disappear.
On DVD & Blu-ray this week ... There's this little movie about male strippers starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey.
This Steve Carell vehicle is not a comedy; it's one of the best romantic dramas in recent memory.
November kicks off with big films such as "Cars 2," Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in "Water for Elephants" and Ryan Gosling in "Crazy, Stupid, Love."
The tears in the finale of "Crazy, Stupid, Love." aren't entirely unearned. The rest of this dramedy may make you rub your eyes, too. It can be that irritating.
