  • ‘Eddie the Eagle’ a feel-good (mostly fictional) true-life tale

    By Mick LaSalle | February 25, 2016 - 10:12pm

    Maybe it’s unfair, but I came away feeling cheated by “Eddie the Eagle.’’ It’s a jolly real-life tale about an underdog who made a splash at the 1988 Winter Olympics, and it does make you feel good, but it turns out that the film’s story is 90 percent fiction.

  • ‘Triple 9’ is a meticulous, well-made crime film

    By Mick LaSalle | February 25, 2016 - 10:12pm

    “Triple 9’’ is no routine crime film.

  • ‘The Witch’ a haunting prequel to Salem

    By Jake Coyle | February 18, 2016 - 10:13pm

    Set under gray Puritan skies in a deathly autumn, “The Witch” is a slow-burning 1600s horror thriller so bone-dry it would only take a match for the whole movie to go up in flames.“A New England folktale” is how the opening titles describe writer-director Robert Eggers’ impressively rigorous feature debut.

  • ‘Race’ a portrait of Jesse Owens and Berlin Olympics

    By Mick LaSalle | February 18, 2016 - 10:13pm

    Some real-life events couldn’t be more right for movies, and the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics was one of them.

  • Irreverent ‘Deadpool’ suffers from juvenile humor

    By LINDSEY BAHR | February 11, 2016 - 10:13pm

    “Deadpool” hates its audience, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  • ‘Zoolander 2’ tries a little too hard to up the ante

    By Jocelyn Noveck | February 11, 2016 - 10:13pm

    In case you don’t follow the global fashion calendar, Fashion Week has just begun in New York, bringing with it a few nice clothes plus the usual over-the-top weirdness — bizarrely themed runway shows and front-row fashionistas teetering on stilt-like heels, swathed in feathers and smoothed out with dangerous doses of Botox.

  • In ‘Hail, Caesar!’ a studio fixer’s faith is tested

    By Jake Coyle | February 4, 2016 - 10:13pm

    The Coen canon reaches a crescendo — or rather a warped inversion of one — in “Hail, Caesar!” when the brothers assemble a quartet of religious leaders from various faiths before Josh Brolin’s 1950s movie studio “fixer” Eddie Mannix.

  • Third time’s a charm for the witty ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’

    By Jocelyn Noveck | January 28, 2016 - 10:22pm

    If you’re one of those people — and I’m with you — who roll your eyes when handed a pair of 3D glasses at the multiplex, wondering if all this rigmarole is REALLY necessary, then take heart: The lovely, color-popping visuals in “Kung Fu Panda 3” are well worth those darned glasses.

  • ‘Finest Hours’ an account of a daring rescue

    By Mick LaSalle | January 28, 2016 - 10:12pm

    “Finest Hours’’ — an odd title, in that it evokes Winston Churchill and the London blitz — concerns a lesser known historical incident that took place in 1952, a sea rescue by the Coast Guard.

  • Robert De Niro has fun as ‘Dirty Grandpa’

    By Shirrel Rhoades | January 21, 2016 - 10:13pm

    A popular prefix, we’ve seen “dirty” used in movies ranging from “Dirty Harry” to “The Dirty Dozen” and from “Dirty Dancing” to “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.” Now we’ve got “Dirty Grandpa.”This title is a tad misleading, other than that grandpa curses a lot.

  • ‘Room’ takes the parental bond to extremes

    By Ann Hornaday | January 21, 2016 - 10:13pm

    From the outset, “Room” doesn’t look like an easy sit, as critics say in the trade.

    By Ann Hornaday | January 14, 2016 - 10:13pm

    “Carol,” an adaptation of a 1952 novel by Patricia Highsmith directed by Todd Haynes, sweeps the viewer up into a heady, exquisitely choreographed dream, casting as beguiling a spell as its seductive title character.

  • Savagery and virtuosity mingle in Inarritu’s ‘The Revenant’

    By Jake Coyle
    The Associated Press | January 7, 2016 - 10:13pm

    Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's frontier survival saga "The Revenant," filmed in the Canadian Rockies, seeks to join the ranks of Werner Herzog's "Fitzcarraldo" and Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now": movies that take some of their primal madness from their raw, remote natural landscapes.

  • The extremes Leonardo DiCaprio went to for ‘The Revenant’

    By LINDSEY BAHR | January 7, 2016 - 10:13pm

    By Sandy Cohen | December 31, 2015 - 10:12pm

    If you’ve seen a preview — or even a poster — for “Daddy’s Home,” you can imagine how the movie goes.

  • A new classic is born in pulsating ‘Hateful Eight’

    By LINDSEY BAHR | December 31, 2015 - 10:12pm
