Much toil and trouble with this 'Macbeth'

The enormous popularity of "Hamlet," from the years following World War I through the 20th century, coincided with a time of alienated youth and of an economy that valued, more than it had ever previously, traits that Hamlet possessed in abundance: innovation, individuality, personality. In a similar way, 21st-century audiences may be ready to embrace "Macbeth," a play about monstrous ambition in ...>>

Inspired telling of legend still as elusive as white whale

With "In the Heart of the Sea," director Ron Howard has given us a painstakingly crafted bore, a lovingly rendered snooze, and a very expensive means by which audiences can experience restless leg syndrome before being carted off to the land of happy slumber. The movie purports to tell the real story that inspired the writing of Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," and like most real stories, back ...>>

Though uneven, 'Chi-Raq' a wonderfully disarming effort

The best moments in the film belong to Angela Bassett, as neighborhood do-gooder Helen, who is the emotional center of the movie; John Cusack, as activist priest Father Corridan, who orates a fiery sermon about the city's social ills; and Samuel L. Jackson, as the narrator who appears now and then in loud suits and delivers the film's ultimate message. [...] Chi-Raq" is a positive movie ...>>

'James White' starts better than it finishes
Entertainment

The movie is a character portrait that does double duty, as the exploration of a singular personality and as an expression of a social condition. The opening shows James (Christopher Abbott), an aimless fellow in his 20s, in a nightclub, where the music is pounding but where he is wearing headphones and listening to much softer pop music. The camera stays with him at about midlevel, no matter wh ...>>

'Little Girl Blue' explores Joplin's demons

Little Girl Blue, the sound that erupts from Janis Joplin singing the '60s R&B classic Cry Baby comes as close as I've heard to a grown-up singer capturing a baby's primal squall. Some of the most memorable images in "Amy" show Winehouse cringing on the street as she is virtually eaten alive by flashbulbs, and at such moments, it feels like a true-life horror movie. The antithesis ...>>

Originally announced for Thanksgiving 2013, this particular "Dinosaur" took a bumpy evolutionary path, with the original director, producer and much of the voice cast being replaced and the movie reconceived by a new team.

Origin stories - movies about how famous characters got their start - have their place, but in the wrong hands they become tales of boring people that end just as they're getting interesting. [...] if this movie had more wit, one would be tempted to think of Radcliffe's characterization as a tribute to Feldman and all he did for screen comedy.) But within hours of meeting Dr. Frankenste ...>>
