The Avengers: Infinity War

April 27, 2018
When Thanos, the over-arching villain of the Marvel universe, sets out at last on his mission to recover the six infinity stones, it becomes clear that all else pales in comparison to the task to stop him. Doing so requires assembling a team of all the heavy-hitters, and I mean all of them.  [...]

Isle of Dogs

March 23, 2018
If Wes Anderson were to make a film, to tell a story in the tradition of an Akira Kurosawa samurai folklore, then I suppose Isle of Dogs would be the closest thing we could come to expect. His latest, never anything less than visually and aurally gorgeous, has an order to abide to: the urgent, [...]

Captain America: Civil War

May 6, 2016
“Captain America: Civil War” is an action-packed thriller with the good guys fighting the bad guys and -- oh, by the way, the Avengers fight among themselves, too! Therefore, the title "Civil War" is quite appropriate. William Hurt plays Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and, following some [...]

Hail, Caesar!

February 5, 2016
"Hail, Caesar!" is an original -- there is nothing else like it in theaters these days. It calls back to a lost time in Hollywood when studio heads fixed problems on movies, including keeping their stars out of the wrong kind of headlines. In this case, Josh Brolin is the man in charge of keeping [...]

The Avengers: The Age of Ultron

May 1, 2015

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Avenger" fans will love "The Age of Ultron," the newest installment in the action-packed, rollicking world of this Marvel franchise. This second film in the series feels a bit inflated and padded, with the battle at the end going on for a long time. Still, the humor and wit from the first movie is [...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

This film features an action-packed journey [...]
