60% Sisters (2015) ""Sisters" is that rare Hollywood comedy that's actually better than the promo trailers - which had anxious fans fearing the hilarious pair had lost their touch. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3/4 74% Trumbo (2015) "Cranston shows Trumbo's public and private sides - giving full measure to his eccentricities without devolving into caricature. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3/4 73% Suffragette (2015) "Mulligan, in particular, delivers, bringing believability to a role that's quite a stretch, given the transformation her character has to go through from workaday mum to first-wave feminist superhero. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Nov 5, 2015
4/4 94% Room (2015) "What happens in this tiny space gives you more to think about than 10 blockbuster action films. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3.5/4 93% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) ""The Diary of a Teenage Girl" is as rewarding as it is squirm-inducing for its honesty, audacity and artful portrayal of adolescence from a girl's point of view. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/4 43% American Ultra (2015) "The brightest star of this picture is screenwriter Max Landis, who pulls off a masterful mashup of action, comedy and romance, with bits of animation tossed in. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3.5/4 89% Meru (2015) "Whether or not mountain-climbing documentaries are your thing, "Meru" is likely to draw you in. It's as much about trust, personal goals and human bonding as battling the elements at their fiercest. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 13, 2015
2/4 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "The third big-budget attempt to tell the origin story of the Fantastic Four superhero saga on film hasn't turned out to be the charm. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2.5/4 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "By trying to appeal to young women, middle-aged moms, gay men and spring-break bros at the same time, the movie spreads itself too thin, filling time better spent on manly moves with too much talk and obvious demographic pandering. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2015
3.5/4 92% The Treatment (De Behandeling) "Aside from a few annoying implausibilities, "The Treatment" is smart suspense at its darkest. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 9, 2015

Posted Apr 9, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Miss Tibet: Beauty In Exile (2014) "The film doesn't delve deeply enough into the cultural contrasts to fully satisfy, but does offer telling glimpses of the identity struggles displaced Tibetans feel. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 9, 2015
3/4 74% The Keeping Room (2015) "Daniel Barber's beautifully shot and authentically set story is somewhat disjointed, but good acting and the women's bond nearly make up for that. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Apr 9, 2015

Posted Feb 5, 2015
3/4 80% Black Sea (2015) "Too often, moviegoers must choose between character-driven drama and edge-of-your-seat action. "Black Sea" has both, with a gripping performance by Jude Law as their nexus. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 31, 2015

Posted Jan 22, 2015
3.5/4 99% Leviathan (2014) "As harshly beautiful as the Barents Sea coastline where it is set, this parable inspired in part by the biblical tale of Job dumps more misfortune than one hapless man should ever have to endure. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 22, 2015
1.5/4 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) ""The Boy Next Door" is a string of situations in which the actors' Job One is keeping straight faces while uttering lines like, "A woman like you should be cherished." " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jan 22, 2015
2.5/4 46% The Gambler (2014) "A string of powerful performances, particularly Wahlberg's, and a killer soundtrack - including M83, Dinah Washington and St. Paul & the Broken Bones - redeem a middling entertainment gambit. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Dec 24, 2014
2.5/4 48% Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) "Ben Stiller and crew go for the easy laughs, spackling the cracks in their armor with a cavalcade of marquee-name cameos and one dizzying action scene after another. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

3/4 88% The Good Lie (2014) "A well-told tale that illuminates the experiences of the 20,000 "lost boys" (and girls) of Sudan, with such grace, insight and humor, it can be forgiven a few simplifying liberties taken in the name of moving the narrative along. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Oct 16, 2014

Posted Oct 2, 2014
1.5/4 29% Annabelle (2014) "In horror, there really is nothing new left to discover under the devil moon, so the secret to startling audiences, or at least raising hairs on the backs of necks, lies in deft direction and editing, both missing here. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Posted Sep 25, 2014
3/4 86% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "The Skeleton Twins is quietly smart, sweet but never syrupy. It should erase any doubt that its two stars, who rose to success as cut-ups, also have dramatic chops. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 19, 2014

Posted Sep 18, 2014
3/4 41% This Is Where I Leave You (2014) "The audience-appeal strategy seems to have been: Throw a bunch of gags along with a can't-miss ensemble cast up on screen and hope at least a few stick. They do, even if the overall effect is loosey-goosey. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 18, 2014
2.5/4 65% The Notebook (2014) "Not a movie for those who insist on happy resolutions, "The Notebook" is instead a study in how the nihilistic worldview that clouds the collective Eastern Europe sensibility came to be. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 11, 2014

Posted Sep 11, 2014
3/4 82% A Master Builder (2014) "Surprisingly engaging ... " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 4, 2014
2/4 30% The Last Of Robin Hood (2014) "This final-days biopic ... hasn't much to raise it above straight-to-DVD caliber save the performance of Kevin Kline in a role he was born to play. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Sep 4, 2014
