The Little Prince (2016)
"Beautifully and expressively animated, The Little Prince basically is the story of an old man who still acts like a kid and a kid who's being programmed to be an "essential" cog in the grand industrial, soul-deadening scheme of things."
O.J.: Made in America (2016)
All the Way (2016)
"This is a riveting film with a bravura performance by Cranston, who's been the signature television actor of the past decade. All the Way again shows there's nothing he can't do -- with the exception of giving a bad performance."
Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015)
"Jackie Robinson connects all of these dots and gives a far fuller picture of the man than the pedestrian 2013 feature film 42 or 1950's The Jackie Robinson Story, in which Jackie played himself opposite Ruby Dee as Rachel."
"It fleshes out Bessie Smith to a degree but certainly not in full measure. Latifah and Rainey can sure sing out, though. It's a pleasure to watch and hear them wail in a film that otherwise doesn't quite cut it."
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)
How Murray Saved Christmas (2014)
Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
The Normal Heart (2014)
The Address (2014)
"[It] becomes an instructive and affecting film, although not a true Burns classic. Still, it's nice to him as a fly on the wall in a contemporary setting, with cameras capturing the here and now rather than recycling telling images from long times ago."
Flowers in the Attic (2014)
Killing Kennedy (2013)
"Killing Kennedy easily could have been twice its length, the better to add both nuance and context. Instead it's a watchable film with many missing parts, a broadly drawn Classics Illustrated version of what happened and why."
"What he was really like remains in large part a mystery. In that respect, Hear My Train A Comin' doesn't try to play a gumshoe. Its strengths are Hendrix in action, his guitar on fire whether he set a match to it or not."
JFK: The Smoking Gun (2013)
Seduced And Abandoned (2013)
Burton And Taylor (2013)
Ghost Shark (2013)
"Syfy already has a Sharknado sequel set for next summer, but Ghost Shark probably won't have that kind of staying power. It succeeds in being more or less stupidly watchable, but unlikely to prompt anywhere near the same Twitter eruption. "
Picture Paris (2011)
Chupacabra vs. the Alamo (2013)
Clear History (2013)
"Clear History is amusing enough to pull a viewer through it, although those who haven't yet acquired a taste for Curb might find it the equivalent of a pricey two-drink minimum without enough payback."
Behind the Candelabra (2013)
Phil Spector (2013)
Philip Roth: Unmasked (2013)
24: Redemption (2008)
