    The movie has its flaws. Still, for anyone with a soft spot for the mute gaze of man’s best friend, it’s hard not to shed a tear — or two — during The Art of Racing in the Rain.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Unfortunately, in the filmmaker’s narrative-feature debut, she takes the theme of betrayal and turns it into fodder for a sitcom, and not a particularly funny one at that.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Yet despite the stirring performance at its heart, the movie is ultimately too restricted by its own dramatic conventions, and it only seldom comes to life.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    The film lacks the very imagination it touts, along with another trait that it links to exceptional athleticism. That’s obsession.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Sometimes feels like a horror movie with a contact high.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    In his effort to inject fresh blood into this gory franchise, which has already seen four sequels (including two “Alien” crossovers), the filmmaker can’t seem to summon up that old Black magic.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Like its protagonist’s fleeting relationships, the film never completely connects.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Despite a glorious performance by Nicolas Cage as a vicious father, this vivid satire of a world turned upside down is marred by writer-director Brian Taylor’s sloppy filmmaking.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    This is one movie that no one needs to relive.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    There are some inspiring people in the film, and one wishes it had been edited to focus more on their stories. In the end, Tomorrow is less a movie than a long public service announcement.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Unforgettable borrows elements from film noir, Lifetime movies and slasher flicks and updates them for the Internet age. But this forgettable thriller will simply make you remember other, better films.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    I Am Michael, is an intermittently affecting — but not entirely convincing — conversion story.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    London Road comes across as no more than tabloid karaoke.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    Manhattan Night gets by on the strength of its visuals and a few vivid central performances, but by the time we find out whodunit, it doesn’t really matter.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Pat Padua
    The film’s likeable leads almost carry off a dark premise: that the love that strengthens this couple also makes them dangerous.
