    Richard Ray Perez's documentary concerns the myth more than the man.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    The setting abounds in beauty, and the storytelling abounds in obvious cues that mute the intended suspense, if not the horror.

    Dunne creates a full-blooded character. The film around him, unfortunately, takes low-key to the realm of tepid.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Stars Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan are game, as is the lineup of mostly wasted supporting actors. But what might have been a snappy short is interminable at feature length, the mayhem-in-suburbia conceit generating few laughs as it stomps along.

    The period details are so lovingly burnished in this uneven, if heartfelt, feature that for a while they threaten to overpower the story, which delves gently into a rarely explored aspect of the war.

    Although the film loses its way in the late going with a preponderance of melodramatic elements that dilute the more compelling social message, for much of its running time it packs a visceral punch, thanks in large part to a strong cast headed by LisaRaye, N'Bushe Wright and Mos Def.

    The frenetic pace detracts from the film's wealth of personalities and vivid visuals. There's the unshakable sense that Rugrats Go Wild is trying too hard to please kids and adults and as a result falls somewhat short for both sets of viewers.

    The promise of a stylish psychological thriller is squandered in Camera Obscura, which lapses into an ordinary, wearying tale of a nice guy in over his head with ruthless criminals.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    A worthy title for cable nets scheduling hard-hitting documentary fare
    • 48 Metascore

    Although its goofy high-concept premise won't bear much scrutiny, it offers a less predictable ride than their first pairing, and lush Hawaiian locations to boot.

    Girls ages 6-14 will get a charge from the fashion show, animation effects and, to a lesser degree, the cartoonish antics. But like most adolescent histrionics, the pic's impact on adults will be limited to mild amusement alternating with annoyance.

    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    In this well-intentioned celebration of nature and traditional ways of life, giant-screen images feel generic when they should inspire wonder.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Flawed but imaginative film.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Does offer a few deeply felt moments.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Mildly engaging but never entirely convincing.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Wavers between would-be satire and romantic drama, inhabiting neither mode convincingly.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Repetitive and ultimately a victim of its own hysteria, the U.K. indie is nonetheless an impressive exercise in high-tech gothic style, with a convincingly deranged Lee Evans.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Feels jammed into a sitcom-shaped bid for laughs.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Ultimately Fear X feels more like an intellectual exercise than a convincing drama.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    In an awkward split-personality way, it works some of the time.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    A winningly restrained lead performance by Tommy Lee Jones, who also exec produced, isn't enough to put the film on the boxoffice scoreboard.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    The film brings a spectacular but little-known chapter of World War II to the big screen with meticulous attention to period detail -- and almost none to compelling narrative.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    There's some nice low-key work amid the uneven performances, but the Montana-shot film's key strength is its sense of place.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Zeroes in on retail mania with a flimsy wire hanger of a premise.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Spends too much time on unconvincing romantic-comedy contrivances to be consistently engaging. Throughout the uneven film and its mixed bag of performances, the compelling point of focus is Diane Keaton's smart, funny, spot-on natural portrait of the formidable Stone matriarch.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    While the 1977 Fun With Dick and Jane was a reasonably diverting sendup of conspicuous consumption with a subversive if not always razor-sharp comic edge, the new version... replaces smart performances with tired shtick.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    A small-scale character piece that genuinely likes its protagonists: an overweight teen girl and an overage delivery guy. But for all its quirky touches, the comedy cleaves to formula in its depiction of how they challenge and change each other.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    With the exception of a few unpredictable moments from Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell, Winter Passing finds only cliche as it reaches for profundity.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Neither good nor so-bad-it's-good, Perry's odd oeuvre has an allure all its own.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Sheri Linden
    Feels padded in some places, truncated in others. It also feels too respectful, especially when its subject is such a deep thinker and questioner of authority.
