  • Una

    Una

    ★★½

    There's a strange absence of conviction to Una. The movie tells the story of a woman in her late 20s, who tracks down the man who had a sexual relationship with her over a decade ago—when she was 13 years old. He was much older than her then, and obviously, he's even older now.

  • The Pirates of Somalia

    The Pirates of Somalia

    ★★★½

    His friends go out drinking, but the time that he isn't working for the marketing firm is spent submitting pitches to various newspapers and magazines. Jay Bahadur (Evan Peters), the protagonist of The Pirates of Somalia, has come to know a rejection letter from the first sentence. The word "unfortunately" is a dead giveaway. His new plan is to refuse to write for any publication that uses that word in its rejection letters. Even that seems like a pipe dream. After all, you have to get an offer in order to reject it.

  • Mortdecai

    Mortdecai

    Mortdecai is the stuff that inspires stipulations in wills, as in, "Have some basic decency on the event of my passing, and don't let people bring up that one movie." On the more positive side of things, it's also one of those movies that will likely be a, if not the, low point for everyone involved, which theoretically means that everyone here only has better things to look forward to in the future of their careers. Even so, this one is going to sting.

  • Last Ounce of Courage

    Last Ounce of Courage

    ½

    This is the movie equivalent of a spoiled child having a temper tantrum, stomping around the room, and, through the whole thing, repeatedly falling down. It would be easy to be annoyed with the movie if it weren't so unaware of how damn funny its display of pointless outrage is.
