Both leading actors blow hot and cold, though they're frequently on target.

Here's something I never expected to say, something I doubt I'd have believed if someone else had said it to me: Martin Scorsese can make a three-hour movie without one fresh perspective or compelling character from end to end.

Emma Thompson glows so brightly in Saving Mr. Banks, even when her face darkens in another scowl, that she eclipses the other elements of this agreeable but unambitious film.

This isn't a history lesson. It's pure entertainment, an excuse for good actors to romp through a twisting, well-told tale.

Blue Jasmine (2013)
[Woody Allen's] spin through Tennessee Williams territory, where he has never gone before, seems fresh in the hands of an expert cast.

Jackson seems to have realized that the story -- whether his, Tolkien's or a hybrid of the two -- depends less on massed battles than on meaningful behavior.

Frozen (2013)
This may be yet another variation on the usual coming-of-age/sisterhood themes so familiar in Disney movies, but who does those better?

All Is Lost (2013)
Though a picture may not really be worth a thousand words, striking images can hold our attention when no words are forthcoming.

Wadjda (2013)
On the surface, it's about a plucky 10-year-old girl who wants a bicycle and uses ingenuity and hard work to raise money to buy one. Yet it's really about the crushing future that awaits Wadjda when she grows to womanhood.

The endlessly enigmatic conversations and continual introduction of characters who never get defined for us (let alone fleshed out) finally make the movie arid, repetitive and hollow.

Even if you know the outcome, you go away saying, "This is how it must have been" at every turn.
