Need for Speed is a movie based on a videogame of the same name. As such it has a built in audience with it from the start. All others will sign on at their own risk -- of boredom

Cusack and De Niro are the old pros in this movie and are compelling in each and every scene. They are also able to create the humor even when the situation is deadly. Da Costa jumps right into the midst of things and does her part with flair and ease.

Non-Stop Is No Taken

Neeson is still interesting in a grungy sort of way, but this time out he doesn't manage to get inside the head or the heart of his character. You are rooting for him most of the time but not with the same enthusiasm you have had in other movies.

In Italy, as in many countries, assisted suicide is illegal. Yet thanks to the assistance of people like Honey, terminally ill people can die in a time and manner of their choosing. Honey is a sensitive, interesting movie. It's not depressing, but it is thought provoking.

Popcorn Preview: True Detective

Leslie Sisman

Our sense is that True Detective will be as much about understanding what happened between Hart and Cohle as solving a murder. Because of the interviews, we know something about how things turn out. But that only makes it harder to work out.

Jackie K. Cooper

Jason Reitman is the director of such hit movies as Up In the Air, Juno and Thank You For Smoking so he obviously knows his way around a good film. So what can account for his lapses concerning his new film Labor Day?
