REVIEW | ‘Sin City 2’ left originality elsewhere
I’ve never been a great admirer of Robert Rodriguez. Like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese and Jean-Luc Godard, the 46-year-old, Texas-born filmmaker is a self-taught “student of cinema,” a one-man crew.

REVIEW | ‘If I Stay’ doesn’t give audience reason to care
Based on the book by Gayle Forman, R.J Cutler’s “If I Stay” is really two movies in one. The first is about the blossoming love between a shy cello player and a cool, leather jacket-wearing hunk in a rock band.
REVIEW | ‘Expendables 3’ is as expendable as its predecessors
“The Expendables 3” is surprisingly watchable. Considering the picture was preceded by two lackluster installments, I’d say that’s the highest praise a movie called “The Expendables 3” can get.
REVIEW | ‘The Giver’ has little to offer in its execution
Directed by Phillip Noyce and based on the children’s dystopian future book by Lois Lowry, “The Giver” is set in a society where everything is the same.

REVIEW | New ‘Turtles’ movie should have stayed in its shell
The new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (TMNT) feature — directed by Jonathan Leibsman — didn’t give me much reason to care about the half-shelled heroes and their struggles.
REVIEW | ‘What If’ wonders if it can do romantic comedy
In the new romantic comedy “What If,” director Michael Dowse wants to recapture the same kind of screwball, verbal-sparring energy characteristic of classic Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn comedies.
REVIEW | This ‘Storm’ lacks any punch
There’s nothing like a gigantic storm to put your life in perspective. All those silly, little problems we have just get blown away in the event of a tornado.
REVIEW | The food makes up for lack of story in ‘Journey’
“The Hundred-Foot Journey” is a food movie, so you can expect a lot of scenes featuring beautiful and tasty-looking food paired with beautiful and tasty-looking sequences of it being delicately prepared.
REVIEW | The Guardians can’t save ‘Galaxy’ from itself
The best thing about James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” — the latest Marvel universe picture — is that it introduces a new universe and a new set of characters.
REVIEW | ‘Get On Up’ does injustice to James Brown, his portrayer
In “Get On Up, the new James Brown biopic, 32-year-old actor Chadwick Boseman embodies the legendary funk singer in just about every way.
