Humor, lighter touches beam up 'Star Trek Beyond'

"Star Trek Beyond," which opens Friday, like most of the rebooted properties flying around our movie theaters, delights in nostalgically resurrecting iconic characters and tweaking them anew. The balance is a delicate one, as seen in the pre-release debate around this film revealing Sulu (John Cho but formerly played by LGBT icon George Takei) as gay. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), on a diplomatic m ...>>

Woody Allen's 'Cafe Society' meanders without resonating

Not only has he kept up his blistering pace of pushing out a movie a year, but this time he's really delivered two films, only loosely connected by jangling neurosis. "Cafe Society," starring Jesse Eisenberg as the sweet but awkward Allen stand-in, is a meandering look at lost love that is split between the highball-sipping, fur-wearing elite nightclubs of Manhattan and Hollywood in the 1930 ...>>

The conceit of his latest exercise in droll negativity is presenting the misery from the viewpoint of the cute dog, who finds herself being herded from owner to owner, each with their own distinct shades of the pathetic. The next owners on the dog's tour include a pathologically struggling screenwriter (Danny DeVito) and a resentful, ailing woman (Ellen Burstyn, brilliant) who wears giant su ...>>

The movie belabors nothing, but rather plows through plot, accomplishing in one scene what another film might do in three. If these brothers want to be part of the wedding, they must rein in their exuberance and find a pair of nice young women to bring as dates. The key to "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates" are the women, and they are like a device from a 17th-century Restoration comedy. Unable ...>>

There's an easygoing, shambling looseness about the Silk Road Ensemble, the multicultural pickup band that cellist Yo-Yo Ma assembled in 2000 with musicians from across Europe, Asia and the United States. "The Music of Strangers," a restless, shaggy effort by director Morgan Neville ("20 Feet From Stardom"), offers a profile of Ma's project, more or less. Neville's camera roams ac ...>>
