    As gorgeously animated as any of his previous movies, Wind has Miyazaki trading in his more fantastical impulses for contemplative, old-fashioned drama and period detail.

    With the same brand of realist irony the Coens used to cool down "Blood Simple," writer-director Jeremy Saulnier slows the genre’s heartbeat to gripping effect.

    The resulting adventure, like most of Aardman's work (Chicken Run, Flushed Away), is more clever than outright funny, but it's also genuinely sweet, and the complicated relations among Santa's clan are surprisingly believable.

    There are more videogame cameos and winks than you can shake a Wiimote at - even the Konami Code, the gamer's paternoster, makes an appearance - but the real success of the film is its emotional core and the relationship between the two misfits.

    The coat of irony helps when the film takes a major pivot in tone, and Stevens is unnervingly placid as the corn-fed terminator.

    At times, Big Hero 6 gets a little too noisy for its own good, but that never manages to drown out its many quieter charms.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Keith Staskiewicz
    Charming enough on its own not to feel like just reheated leftovers.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Keith Staskiewicz
    The film’s first half feels almost as directionless as its characters, but the detailed specificity of the milieu and story proves engrossing.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 75 Keith Staskiewicz
    It’s half "Friday the 13th," half "Phantom of the Paradise," and just cheesy enough to work.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Keith Staskiewicz
    That doesn’t stop the movie as a whole from feeling a little slight, though, like a Christmas tree that isn’t entirely filled out.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 67 Keith Staskiewicz
    The characters are boiled down to their essentials, the humor is timelessly broad, and Jolie's at her best when she's curling her claws and elongating her vowels like a black-sabbath Tallulah Bankhead.

    "Once" was a small and well-loved heirloom, its imperfections part of the charm. But Begin Again has been burnished to a shiny dullness.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 58 Keith Staskiewicz
    A handful of adrenalizing sequences of animated anarchy can't save this story from feeling overly primitive.
    • 49 Metascore

    At a time when the budgets for sci-fi films are, like the universe itself, expanding at an astronomical rate, Riddick decides to go small.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Keith Staskiewicz
    A movie so stuffed with eccentricity, it rips at least a couple of seams.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Keith Staskiewicz
    A moderately popular racing series that the powers that be have tried to turn into a turbo-boosted stunt-car extravaganza of the same make and model as the "Fast & Furious" franchise.

    In one of his final roles, Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as a man whose no-good stepson is killed on a construction job, while John Turturro, Richard Jenkins, and Christina Hendricks round out a formidable cast that isn’t given much to work with.

    For a film ostensibly about the importance of finding a little spice and flavor in your life, From Prada to Nada is surprisingly bland.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 42 Keith Staskiewicz
    The longest stretch of logical plotting lasts about forty seconds, and the deep-rooted silliness makes it hard to take anything in the film seriously. But at least it has the decency never to ask us to.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 42 Keith Staskiewicz
    An intermittently fun, but overexcited and predictable mish-mash.
    • 51 Metascore

    The film tries to paint in shades of gray with vague criticisms of the war on drugs, but the absurdity of its he-man Everyman plot ends up turning its moral palette a muddy brown.

    Some horror movies want to scare you witless, but Silent Hill: Revelation 3D just wants to beat you senseless.

    For his part, Lee seems to have pored over every sports underdog movie of the last twenty years, boiled away all the interesting particulars, and kept whatever dross was left.

    With more telegraphed scares than Samuel Morse on Halloween, it still might give you a restless night, but only because you fell asleep in the theater.
