    Colorful folks and cool stunts abound, but casual viewers may still utter a big "Why?"

    Predestination may have the trippiest, weirdest take yet on the time-travel concept.

    Some of Hyde Park on Hudson feels like lost scenes from "The King's Speech," the 2010 Oscar-winner about King George. It doesn't help that "Hyde's" own rhythms, appealing as they are, are often soporific.

    The jokes are hit-and-miss, but the cast is uniformly game, with Labine stealing the show.

    Australian director Cate Shortland’s straightforward approach to the blinders worn by Hitler Youth creates a disconcerting and eerie film, made even more memorable since it’s seen through the prism of childhood’s end.

    Throughout, Hollyman rings true . She’s heartfelt, freaked-out and never too way out.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    An emotionally devastating drama that isn't for the squeamish.

    It's amazing that in an era of oversharing and reality TV, a doc consisting mostly of cable TV clips and personal reminiscences can be so resonant.

    Even with no wood sprites, witches or spells, there’s plenty of magic in this coming-of-age charmer.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    The result is cool and semi-comical, but also serious.

    His years of success aren't as gripping as Kapadia, and Senna's legend, would have us believe. He had no demons besides fame, and no hurdles besides a recklessness that went with the territory.

    A committed cast and pensive insights into family and self-expression help make this indie drama work.
    • 59 Metascore

    It doesn't try too hard, but what The Lie is working at, in its unassuming, amusing way, is a mini-portrait of growing pains in a time of extended adolescence. The truth is, that kind of thing is never easy, no matter what age.

    "2" works harder to land punches, but when it does, it provides the kind of fun it's fan base hopes for. But expectations, and targets, are lower all around.
    • 77 Metascore

    Director Andrew Dosunmu’s film is big-hearted and rich, frequently using slow motion to underscore an artful intimacy.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    Peter Mullan and Olivia Colman give such hard-as-nails, lived-in performances in this stark drama directed by Irish actor Paddy Considine ("In America," "Cinderella Man") that it's impossible not to be pulled in.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    The rhythms of this comedy-drama may be familiar, but besides its fratty title, it's surprisingly sophisticated.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    This uneven but often charming movie produced by Spielberg gets so many things right, including its practiced naivete. What's missing, however, is a crucial sense of connection to itself.
    • 57 Metascore

    With the combo of Neeson’s natural solemnity and his action chops, “Tombstones” treads compellingly amongst lesser thrillers.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    Twisty, engaging thriller.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    A taut drama that manages to be thoughtful without forgetting it's a creep-out.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    Chronicle is an energetic hodgepodge that tweaks familiar conventions just enough to seem fresh. Forget the X-Men - these are iHeroes.

    Weithorn, a sitcom vet whose credits include "Ned and Stacey" and "The King of Queens," makes sure even the quiet moments in the unassuming "A Little Help" move things forward. And that every one of Laura's missteps is in the right direction.

    Sadly suffers from more than a dollop of boredom. Like the ornate dollhouse that plays a part, "Arrietty" is lovely and well-appointed, but filled with only what you bring to it.

    With action this strong, the script just needs to be serviceable - and that's exactly what it is.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    In terms of scares, this old-fashioned Thing is better than most new things.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Joe Neumaier
    Fascinating and, when you see Afghan versions of Simon Cowell and Co. reacting to tryouts, a reminder of how fame and the thirst for it is the same in any language.
    • 67 Metascore

    Plot is not the movie’s strong suit. But stylish set pieces are, including one epic blast-a-thon alongside a pool.
    • 70 Metascore

    Even with all the inconvenient truths exposed, Stone's film is still, sadly, inescapably crucial.
    • 85 Metascore

    There’s visual poetry here and haunted performances from Mezzogiorno and Timi -- who plays two roles, and is especially gripping as Dalser’s grown son.
