Movie Review: ‘The Imitation Game’

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game"

'Tis clearly the season for Oscar-worthy performances by British actors playing mathematical geniuses facing daunting personal odds. Sound overly specific? Consider: A few weeks ago we had "The Theory of Everything," starring Eddie Redmayne as the brilliant physicist Stephen Hawking . And now we have Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game" as Alan Turing, the man chiefly responsible for cracking the vaunted Enigma cod... more

Movie Review: ‘Penguins of Madagascar’

Penguins of Madagascar

Sequels and spinoffs have become commonplace in children's animated films. Once an idea such as DreamWorks' Madagascar takes off, it's not too long before there's a second or third installation, and films that should have gone straight to DVD get upgraded to box-office fare.

"Let's bet on ourselves," they tell each other, making a clearly questionable wager. They go into business with a bath product dubbed "Showe... more

Movie Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1'

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1"

In honor of the title we'll break this part of the sentence with a colon, and then use a portentous dash: "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1" is a worthy third movie in the Suzanne Collins franchise -- destined to satisfy the legions of filmgoers willing to swing with a lot of scheming and skulking in an underground bunker resembling the world's most frightening Marriott, in order to get to the revolution. Th... more

Movie Review: ‘Rosewater’

Kim Bodnia, left, and Gael Garcia Bernal in a scene from the film "Rosewater."

You can take the man away from the humor. But you clearly can't always take the humor from the man. This gratifying principle proves true both for the Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari , who was imprisoned for 118 days in Tehran and accused of being a spy, and of Jon Stewart , who captures Bahari's harrowing tale in "Rosewater," a clear-headed, sensitive and thoroughly impressive directorial debut ... more
