DVD Reviews


They needed three tries, but they finally got a Wolverine movie right — just in time to bring his grim saga to a close.

The Space Between Us

Part science fiction, part road movie, a whole lot angst-y teenage romance, “The Space Between Us” shows the limits of what you can do with a good cast.

Fifty Shades Darker

Watching "Fifty Shades Darker" is like being the reluctant participant in a frisky whipping, and you’ve forgotten the safe word.


Mathew McConaughey shines brightly playing a lowlife who hits the big time in this little-seen drama that didn't get the hoped-for awards attention.

La La Land

“La La Land” is a little bit of a lot of things — funny, sad, romantic, melodious, handsome, charming. But it just doesn’t impact you in one or two strong ways.


Though it plucks the hoariest of chestnuts, split personalities, off the cinematic fireplace, "Split" still manages to scare in between the snickers.

Janelle Monáe, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer star in "Hidden Figures," a 20th Century Fox release.

Hidden Figures

Takes an interesting bit of forgotten history, and then spools that out in a predictable plot that's strictly by the numbers.

Rogue One

It's easily the weakest of the "Star Wars" saga. But this prequel still is better than most science-fiction out there and builds momentum rather than losing it.
