  • Magic Mike XXL

    Magic Mike XXL 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2015

    Magic Mike XXL lacks a bit of its predecessor's narrative strength, but it does what it can to make up for that by the strength of the cast. Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Jada Pinkett Smith, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodríguez, Gabriel Iglesias, Donald Glover and even Kevin Nash kill it in their delivery and their performances here. I was happy to see this didn't go the way I was afraid it might, with some overblown dance movie-style competition, but there isn't…

    Danny Collins 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Aug, 2015

    He may not be tearing up the box office, but Al Pacino is in the middle of a career resurgence.

First came the surprisingly good The Humbling, about a washed-up actor. Then we got this one, which covers similar thematic ground but more effectively.

I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2015

    "What a lovely day" is Mad Max: Fury Road's most marketed phrase, but the one that most exemplifies it is "We are not things." This fourth film in the famous Australian franchise is a $150 million arthouse post-apocalyptic spaghetti western, and a fabulous one at that. George Miller is as good as he's ever been behind the camera with this intense experience that turns many elements of the action genre on its head. The acting is top-notch -- including from…
