'Geostorm' review: A tempest only Gerard Butler can tame

"Geostorm" finds ways to draw attention away from an interesting use of weather as a weapon by using a cold front of political jabber. The problems in "Geostorm" were caused by director Dean Devlin and co-writer Paul Guyot as they have taken a passable action film and buried it under a tsunami...

  • 'Breathe' review: Andrew Garfield portrays disability advocate with grace

    'Breathe' review: Andrew Garfield portrays disability advocate with grace

    "Breathe" is meant, no doubt, as a sincere homage to the late disability advocate Robin Cavendish, who died, after living with polio for 36 years, in 1994. Commissioned by his son, producer Jonathan Cavendish — who plays a minor role in the film — and directed by Jonathan Cavendish's business partner,...

  • 'Only the Brave' review: Josh Brolin leads elite team into wildfires

    'Only the Brave' review: Josh Brolin leads elite team into wildfires

    The title “Only the Brave” sounds like Hollywood fraudulence. Certainly there are moments in director Joseph Kosinksi’s film, an adaptation of Sean Flynn’s vivid 2013 GQ article about the fatal Arizona wildfires and the elite Granite Mountain firefighters who took them on, when the characters don’t...

  • 'Chavela' review: Ranchera singer with a voice like a 'tremendous canyon'

    'Chavela' review: Ranchera singer with a voice like a 'tremendous canyon'

    She shared a bed, often with empty tequila bottles on the floor nearby, with Frida Kahlo and (she claims, fleetingly, on camera) Ava Gardner. And she poured so much romantic longing into each ranchera song she sang that the results seemed to emanate, as one interview subject in a new documentary...

    'The Florida Project': Childhood, in a land stranger than paradise

    In different hands, the people knocking around the mauve-slathered kitsch universe of “The Florida Project,” a highlight of the fall season, might’ve made for a pretty awful and manipulative dramatic experience. At-risk children running wild and having too much fun to know why they’re hurting inside;...

  • 'Professor Marston and the Wonder Women': One man's heroine habit

    'Professor Marston and the Wonder Women': One man's heroine habit

    “Wonder Woman” made $821 million worldwide, so the timing seems ideal for an intimately connected origin story. The comic book superheroine’s creator, free-thinking psychologist William Moulton Marston, introduced Wonder Woman (initially called Suprema, which sounds like a sugar substitute) in...

  • 'The Meyerowitz Stories' review: Noah Baumbach's witty airing of grievances

    'The Meyerowitz Stories' review: Noah Baumbach's witty airing of grievances

    Adam Sandler has made some of the rankest comedies in modern movies, and in a miserably divided world, that’s one thing on which we can all agree. But his excellent work in the new Noah Baumbach film “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” did not come out of thin air. With the perpetually...

    'Blade Runner 2049' review: Ryan Gosling stars in stylish, brooding upgrade of the '82 model

    In 1982, when replicants hadn’t yet become a Hollywood business model, “Blade Runner” failed to do what Warner Brothers hoped it would: make a pile of money. It succeeded, however, in acquiring the reputation of a modern science fiction classic. Director Ridley Scott’s 2019-set story (based on...
