Tropic Thunder (2008) Marcianne Miller [Tropic Thunder] will probably set the bar for over-the-top humor for years to come. EDIT

Traitor (2008) Marcianne Miller The more I think about this movie, the better it gets. EDIT

Tell No One (2006) Marcianne Miller It's a thriller. It's a love story. It's for adults. Don't miss Tell No One. EDIT

Priceless (2006) Marcianne Miller As entertaining as the young lovers are, the most compelling character in Priceless is the widow Madeleine, played to sophisticated perfection by Anne-Christine Adam. EDIT

Hancock (2008) Marcianne Miller [At first] Hancock is great fun, quirky and hilarious... Smith especially proves every minute why he's become the best in Hollywood. Then the movie takes an odd turn and goes into a whole other story, with different -- and deeper, I guess -- meanings. EDIT

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Marcianne Miller A good last scene does not a good movie make. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) Marcianne Miller Nothing quite like the entertainment value of bloodless mayhem. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Death Race (2008) Marcianne Miller Death Race was so relentlessly sadistic, so grim, so basically without any redeeming human value that even a race fan like me ended up being turned off by the so-called "ultimate in auto carnage." EDIT

The Women (2008) Marcianne Miller Despite its good intentions and high hopes, The Women is not a good movie. It does, though, have plenty of nifty slices. EDIT

August: Osage County (2013) Marcianne Miller I disliked this movie so much that, figuring I must have missed something, I went and saw the darn thing again -- it was even worse the second time. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Big Eyes (2014) Marcianne Miller The movie is big and amusing, and the shots of streets full of pastel vintage automobiles are worth the price of admission. It's terrific holiday fare. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Interstellar (2014) Marcianne Miller The enchantment of a Christopher Nolan film, the sheer majesty of it, if you will, is surrendering to it. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Ida (2013) Marcianne Miller It's done in hard-focus black-and-white, with no tricky camera moves, no special effects; sort of "minimalist realism." EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Secrets of War (2014) Marcianne Miller The children are so believable you forget that you're watching a movie. You're right there with them in their changing world, hearing their heartbeats, imagining the nightmares looming over them. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
The Winding Stream (2014) Marcianne Miller You'll not leave the theater without feeling that you, too, are part of the great flow of American music. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Dough (2015) Marcianne Miller English-Austrian director John Goldschmidt and his two writers have put together a tale that, while utterly predictable, is also simply delicious. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
The Danish Girl (2015) Marcianne Miller The film's extraordinary, detailed visual beauty will stay with you long after the movie is over. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Hidden Figures (2016) Marcianne Miller It's a rousing, patriotic, feel-good picture, with terrific performances from Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monaé, and Octavia Spencer. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Jackie (2016) Marcianne Miller A subtle, mesmerizing, mind-altering character study. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Hell or High Water (2016) Marcianne Miller Hell or High Water is a modern crime tale, as mythic as any classic Western, filled with complex heroes, dangerous bank robberies, and breathtaking scenery. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) Marcianne Miller The movie is so lush with detail that only a big screen can do it justice. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
12 Years a Slave (2013) Marcianne Miller 12 Years a Slave is the most horrifying film you'll see all year. It's also one of the most beautiful. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Enemy (2013) Marcianne Miller I liked Enemy a lot. I see so many movies each year, many of which are near-clones of previous movies, that it's a treat to see a movie with an unconventional take on things, even if it's disturbing. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Noah (2014) Marcianne Miller In essence, the best thing about Noah, is not merely the excitement on the screen, but the many questions that keep multiplying when it's over. Do see Noah, and do see it on the big screen. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Winter's Tale (2014) Marcianne Miller Winter's Tale is one of the movies where you just forget logic and allow the magic to happen. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
The Dark Knight (2008) Marcianne Miller A film is only as good as its villain. By that standard, The Dark Knight achieves true greatness. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Then She Found Me (2007) Marcianne Miller In her feature film directorial debut, actress Helen Hunt delivers a solid, thoughtful drama marked by terrific performances from a perfectly cast circle of friends. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Sex and the City (2008) Marcianne Miller Sex and the City isn't a movie per se. It's a cultural phenomenon. As a movie, it's only so-so. As an event-it's terrific. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
You Don't Mess With the Zohan (2008) Marcianne Miller The high-handed premise doesn't always work in Zohan but you have to admire the chutzpah in trying it. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) Marcianne Miller Except for one grossly offensive aspect -- done twice --Crystal Skull is everything Indy fans want. It's a big, noisy, entertaining escape from reality. It makes no sense whatsoever and who cares? EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Get Smart (2008) Marcianne Miller There are a few laughs, but nothing memorable, no biting satire and no clever wit. Most disappointing, there's no real chemistry between the bumbling Maxwell Smart and beautiful Agent 99. A fizzle where there be sizzle. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Nim's Island (2008) Marcianne Miller Particularly for young girls and their supportive parents, Nim's Island is an entertaining, empowering film -- don't miss it. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Iron Man (2008) Marcianne Miller It's perhaps the most thrilling tribute to good old American ingenuity the movies have given us in ages. EDIT
Posted Aug 25, 2018
Leatherheads (2008) Marcianne Miller Is Leatherheads a retro screwball comedy? A patriotic tribute? A sliver of sports history? It's all those things and more. Alas, more is not necessarily better. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Fury (2014) Marcianne Miller Led by Brad Pitt, all the actors turn in stunning performances: weary of war, numb from the pointlessness of it all, but feverishly alive. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
The Hero (2017) Marcianne Miller The Hero is a darned good movie, full of heart and dignity, a simple tale of reconciliation. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Marcianne Miller If you channel your goofy 8th-grade self, you will love this film. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Darkest Hour (2017) Marcianne Miller You'll leave the theater stunned -- not only by what the British accomplished in WWII, but also longing for leaders whose words touch the hearts of their citizens. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Marcianne Miller Three Billboards' characters may not get slapped with an earth-based court sentence, but in this complex story, a morality play some call it, life itself metes out justice. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Maleficent (2014) Marcianne Miller Angelina Jolie was beyond perfection -- she wasn't playing the role of the wronged fairy -- she was the fairy, raging in all her queenly grief and vengeful fury, and lovely in her otherworldly beauty. EDIT

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) Marcianne Miller How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the most fun I've had in a movie theatre in ages. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Snowpiercer (2013) Marcianne Miller Snowpiercer is an astonishingly good movie. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
Calvary (2014) Marcianne Miller The movie is a tragedy with humor -- kind of like life. And, like life, it may be way-too-human for some audiences. I loved it. My companion did not. EDIT
Posted Aug 24, 2018
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2013) Marcianne Miller When The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is over, our only consolation is the realization that Ned Benson is merely 37 years old, so we can count on seeing more astonishing films from him. EDIT
