2.5/4 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) I'm nuts about Laurel and Hardy, but the folks behind the bioflick "Stan & Ollie" clearly adore them more. Blame that love on creating a nice mess. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

3/4 65% Aquaman (2018) Wan has a great visual eye or, at very least, a master's degree in CGI. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

3/4 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) Ethan and Joel Coen have a reputation for making films that shatter expectations, and "Ballad" is no exception. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

2.5/4 40% The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018) Despite recruiting red-hot Claire Foy for the title role, both Salander and the film lack the biff!-bam!-pow! punch required to get into the Justice League. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

100% Trouble No More (2017) If the recent box set spotlighting Bob Dylan's gospel years hasn't made you a convert, the concert film "Trouble No More" should do the trick. The legend has never looked more spirited and engaged than he does in this footage from 1980. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

89% The Problem with Apu (2017) The Problem With Apu, is drowned out by frustration that he can't land an interview with the character's voice actor, Hank Azaria. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

100% Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine (2017) The documentary Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine may not be highbrow humor, but you'll end up feeling just a bit smarter about the sensibilities of teenage boys. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

3.5/4 82% Confirmation (2016) We may never know who was telling the truth, but there's no denying the ramifications, too deep and wide to fit on a T-shirt. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

2.5/4 28% Annie (2014) There's still a good film to be made of "Annie," but it'll take Broadway veterans, not box-office stars, to pull it off. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

36% Salinger (2013) Too bad that Salinger offers no real insight into the elusive writer and is fueled almost entirely by trivial anecdotes. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT

3/4 81% Conan O'Brien Can't Stop (2011) The documentary makes the case that O'Brien is too passionate, too complex, too driven to simply snap out of it. - Minneapolis Star Tribune EDIT
