Walk in the theater not expecting much. Walk out charmed and happy. Key & Peele will have that kind of affect on you. And that little furball that plays Keanu is worth his weight in catnip.

How you waste a top-tier cast in a total nothing of a movie like this I'll never understand. Pity poor Jessica Chastain, who I've adored in just about everything she's done and who looks like she was forced into this project against her will.

Enlightening and moving are two descriptive words that will never be associated with the misconceived and misguided endeavor that is Nina.

It's a feast for the mind and the eyes, with stunning special effects, dazzling use of 3D (seriously, go see it in 3D!), and a revelatory performance from a talented young newcomer to hold it all together.

'EKAJ': More Than a Movie

Peter C. Frank | Posted 04.05.2016 | Queer Voices
Peter C. Frank

The decision by director Cati Gonzalez to use "real people" who parallel the lives of the film's characters offers an unvarnished glimpse into the graphic reality of a subject often talked about only in generalized terms.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Comic book fans will flock to this movie regardless. Whether they come back to see it a second or third time, like they did for The Dark Knight Rises or Deadpool, is the question.

Born to Be Blue

"I did it my way..." No, Ethan Hawke doesn't sing those lyrics in this faux bio/film about jazz great Chet Baker.

There must be a day of reckoning and it can't be left up to fate. That's the premise of this extremely inventive geriatric revenge movie, which is the brainchild of casting director turned screenwriter Benjamin August.
