<p>Things are not alright, alright, alright for McConaughey in the familiar but stylish The Lincoln Lawyer. </p> L.A. Law

Based on the novel by Michael Connelly, The Lincoln Lawyer is one loud, swaggering showoff of a thriller. It is well-acted and decently written … but there's something about director Brad Furman's approach that invites us to ignore all of that and just revel in the surface excitement. Bursting at the seams with flashy photography, attractive people and the usual courtroom dramatics, this movie would probably feel...


<p>Sure, they look cute and cuddly here, but the animals followed by the filmmakers of The Last Lions assure that this is no Disney movie. </p> Where’s Whoopi?

Throaty and sleepy, Jeremy Irons begins his narration of the wildlife documentary The Last Lions as if awoken from a crumpet-induced nap. Any electricity that’s felt by once more having Irons’ voice laid atop images of lions is blunted by a delivery that sounds like Irons is auditioning for a British sex chat line.

Amidst a sea of fallen comrades, facing almost certain death at the hands of an incomprehensible foe, Staff Sgt. Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) gets inches from the face of Cpl. Jason Lockett (Cory Hardrict) and begins to bellow a five-minute rant without missing a single military cliché. Seemingly exhausted by covering every base from “good men died out there” to “Marines don’t quit,” Nantz pauses, looks...

This harrowing, heartbreaking tale is a parable for how the poor live now.

Mr. Turner

A spectacularly crafted piece that transcends its boring genre.

GRADE
A

Kingsman: The Secret Service

A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

GRADE
B

On DVD: Birdman

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension. 

GRADE
B+

On DVD: The Theory of Everything

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

GRADE
B+

Jupiter Ascending

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.

GRADE
A-

Zero Motivation

This Israeli comedy about military service is a mixed bag.

GRADE
