Movie review: Under the Skin

(Web Exclusive) Under the Skin is a study in humanity. It begs the question "what makes us who we are?" without ever actually asking.

Movie Review: Le Week-­End

(Web Exclusive) Overall, the temperature of the film resembles lukewarm bath water, which adds a rather somber, sometimes unsatisfactory, mood to the film.

Movie review: Draft Day

(Web Exclusive) A heaping helping of draft-day drama with the added excitement of a secret relationship and family issues on the side. However, the execution makes Draft Day a win for football fans and a disappointment for movie buffs.

Movie review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

(Web Exclusive)

Movie review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

(Web Exclusive) A fleet-footed and unusually thoughtful entry into the Marvel Comic Universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier manages to remain both gritty action flick and frothy entertainment.

Movie review: Veronica Mars

(Web Exclusive) To casual viewers, it’s a fun film and a great introduction to the characters. For Marshmallows, it’s a reason to rejoice.

Movie review: Sabotage

(Web Exclusive) The worst part of the film is the character development. The rough-and-rogue agents have nothing to offer beneath an avalanche of macho-man clichés and f-bombs.

Movie review: Noah

(Web Exclusive) The film keeps you guessing, which is some measure of accomplishment for one of the most known stories ever.

Movie Review: Muppets Most Wanted

(Web Exclusive) Not only is the plot lacking in depth, cleverness and humor, but the jokes are simply bad. The film couldn’t even hold the attention of the children sitting next to me.

Movie review: Gloria

(Web Exclusive) Gloria shows that getting older doesn’t mean losing your sense of adventure.

Movie review: Divergent

(Web Exclusive) Although it didn’t leave me weak at the knees, Divergent was downright entertaining, so much so that much of the audience robustly applauded the movie when it ended.

Movie review: Non-Stop

(Web Exclusive) Non-Stop viewers will be switching their guesses of who the true villain is up until the last five minutes. Wait to see this on DVD so you can discuss with friends who you think is holding the plane hostage without angering movie theatre-goers with your whispers.

Movie review: The Wind Rises

(Web Exclusive) Inspired by famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni, young Jiro determines to explore the sky as an aircraft engineer. The plot lines in Miyazaki's animated film, however, are too fragmental to support a strong, focused storyline.

Movie review: Stranger by the Lake

(Web Exclusive) Franck (Pierre Delandonchamps) is out of work and spending the summer by the lake— a gay cruising spot where men of all ages lay naked on the shore, take dips in the lake and even sneak away into the bushes for some not-so-private intimacy. When Franck bears witness to a swift, moonlit murder, he finds himself in the middle of the investigation, which leads to him as the number one suspect.

Movie review: Need for Speed

(Web Exclusive) This isn’t award-winning material, but it does make for one hell of a fun Friday night.

Movie review: Mr. Peabody and Sherman

(Web Exclusive) Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a great add-on to this weekend’s family night out. It's all quite sappy, but for an animated story of a genius talking dog whose son is human, it’s pretty cute.

Movie review: Son of God

(Web Exclusive) The most memorable thing about Son of God is its utter lack of memorability. It’s the skim milk of biblical biopics — a tuned-down Passion of the Christ with a family-friendlier vibe.

Movie review: 300 Rise Of An Empire

(Web Exclusive) Despite the film’s unique style of combat and testosterone-fueled bro-mance comradery, it falls through horrid acting and an unoriginal plot line.

Movie review: The Past

(Web Exclusive) In efforts to move on from the past are we really just attempting to fill voids and ending up right back where we were? I’m not sure even after 2+ hours of subtitles.

Movie review: The Broken Circle Breakdown

(Web Exclusive) Country music is all about soaring highs and crushing lows, and so is The Broken Circle Breakdown .
