Latest faith-based offering "Heaven Is for Real" has some real issues

Published April 22, 2014

"Heaven Is for Real" is a moderately welcome upgrade for the Christian film norm. That's not to say it doesn't have many of the same problems that plague its faith-based brethren like a pestilence, but the film adaptation of Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent's bestselling non-fiction book is at least trying. "Heaven Is for Real" still almost necessitates being graded on a curve, but at least the movie earns it.

"Dom Hemingway": Jude Law goes from prim, proper to profane, punchy

Published April 19, 2014

Gone is Jude Law's pretty regality; in "Dom Hemingway," the Brit looks rough, and he gleefully tearing into his profane lead role like an untamed wolf that just got its first taste of meat. For Law, it's a chance for him to let loose with a character like never really before. And he most certainly does, with big, audaciously compelling results. The rest of the movie, unfortunately, has a hard time getting on his level, but can you really blame it?

Arnie's comeback turns ugly in "Sabotage"

Published April 15, 2014

"Sabotage" finds Arnold Schwarzenegger briefly pushing his persona in a new direction.

Credit where credit is due for trying something new, but considering the film's brainlessly scummy ugliness, it qualifies merely as a not-quite-noble failure.

"Rio 2" is yet another enjoyably forgettable animated adventure

Published April 13, 2014

Much like the first movie, "Rio 2" is colorful and vibrant and cracks a few good jokes here or there. It's a generally enjoyable film, albeit one that feels like several animated features audiences have seen and forgotten long before.

"Draft Day" is a nice football movie for people who don't like football

Published April 11, 2014

"Draft Day" is an ad, less for the NFL Draft - though it is conveniently coming up in just a month - and more for the league itself. It's a hopeful attempt to get people to mindlessly consume a sport that's becoming more and more difficult to mindlessly consume. The mildly impressive thing is that, under "Ghostbusters" helmer Ivan Reitman's eye, the light, fluffy football trifle goes down almost as easily as designed.
