Movie Review: ‘The Book of Life’

book of life movie

Día de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead may seem like a somber celebration as the focal point of a children's animated film. However, the roots of the Mexican holiday that typically spans from Halloween through All Saints' Day revolve around the essence of what brings families together. The Book of Life directer Jorge R. Gutierrez ( Nickelodeon's El Tigre: The Advent... more

Movie Review: ‘The Best of Me’

best of me james marsden michelle monaghan

If the Internet, yours truly and indeed the world still exist in 21 years, maybe I'll think to do a Google image search on Luke Bracey , an Australian hunk whose credits include "Cobra Commander" in "G.I.

Inarritu's bracingly inventive and accomplished new film about fame, relevance, self-worth and lots of other intense stuff, he's sitting in his white undies, in the middle of a dressing room. No, really in the middle. Like, in the air. He's levitating. Of course you think, "How'd he DO that?" Turns out that's an apt metaphor, intentional or not, for Inarritu's entire... more

Movie Review: ‘St. Vincent’

bill murray st vincent

If we were going to be curmudgeonly about it — and "St. Vincent" is, after all, a movie about a curmudgeon — we'd focus on the one major flaw in the film, and not on its pleasures. But since those pleasures are so, well, pleasurable, we'll do what Vincent — he's the curmudgeon, brought wonderfully to life by the singular Bill Murray — would never do. We'll focus on the positive. Which is considerable. Who wouldn... more
