REVIEW | Despite lack of action, ‘A Most Violent Year’ maintains suspense
J.C. Chandor’s “A Most Violent Year” is a crime drama that requires a lot of patience from the audience. Part of this comes from the fact that the title promises a much different, more exciting movie.

REVIEW | Eastwood misses mark with ‘American Sniper’
In his second cinematic outing of 2014, director Clint Eastwood tells the story of Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American history, with 160 confirmed kills. It’s a great story, yet Eastwood’s film rarely escalates to such heights.

REVIEW | There’s nothing deep in ‘Inherent Vice’
“Inherent Vice,” based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, is Paul Thomas Anderson’s wild, psychedelic take on film noir — think, “The Big Sleep” crossed with “The Big Lebowski.”
REVIEW | ‘Predestination’ doesn’t know where to go
For the most part, January is a cinematic graveyard.
Occasionally, however, a movie will come along with loftier aspirations.
FOOD MATTERS | Eating in the living room
There are a number of delightful “public living rooms” if you do want to leave the house. BeachHouse Madison Park (1927 43rd Ave. E.) is one such living room.
Madison Park Christmas carolers performed Dec. 17 at the Madison Park Starbucks (4000 E. Madison St.).
REVIEW | ‘Unbroken’ is uninteresting take on a hero’s journey
Angelina Jolie’s sophomore directorial effort, “Unbroken,” is an utterly bland, mostly soulless endeavor. It’s the kind of large-scale historical biopic that comes ready-made with words like “inspirational,” “heartbreaking” and “powerful.” But the movie is none of those things.
REVIEW | ‘Into the Woods’ not worth the trip
I’ll admit up front that I’m not the audience for Rob Marshall’s “Into the Woods,” an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical (written by James Lapine; music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim). Still, I can say that the movie isn’t a disaster.
REVIEW | ‘Gambler’ risks it all on Wahlberg’s perfomance
Rupert Wyatt’s “The Gambler” is simply a good movie. It’s a remake of the 1974 James Caan film of the same name, but this version isn’t a carbon copy.

REVIEW | Modern ‘Annie’ is good family fare
Perhaps it was low expectations and the sugary beverage I drank in the theater, but I found Will Gluck’s glossy, modernized film remake of the famous Broadway musical “Annie” to be perfectly decent.
