  • 'Grandma' review: Lily Tomlin shines in story of modern family

    We don't get to choose when or where we fall in love with a performer; sometimes it happens when they're doing Ingmar Bergman, and sometimes it's "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In." Lily Tomlin joined the cast of that cherished relic of a sketch comedy TV show in 1970, and very quickly millions became...

  • 'No Escape' review: Melodrama and misguided politics

    'No Escape' review: Melodrama and misguided politics

    If what you're seeking in the doldrums of August is stomach-churning, eye-watering suspense, "No Escape" delivers just that, but it falls short with a tone-deaf story and extremely xenophobic worldview.

  • 'We Are Your Friends' review: A familiar tune

    'We Are Your Friends' review: A familiar tune

    "Are we ever gonna be better than this?" Cole Carter (Zac Efron) entreats his hyped, pulsating crowd. "We Are Your Friends," directed by Max Joseph, isn't quite sure of the answer to that question. But, as an audience, you wish that this promising, but generic film were better than this. "We Are...

    'Digging for Fire' review: Mystery and marriage

    The best thing to happen to filmmaker Joe Swanberg? His choice of cinematographer. Ben Richardson, who worked with the director on the recent Chicago projects "Drinking Buddies" and "Happy Christmas," teams up with Swanberg again for "Digging for Fire," which was shot on warm, pleasing 35 millimeter...

  • 'Hitman: Agent 47' review: Rogue assassin tale shoots and misses

    If you see one movie about governmentally modified assassins this weekend, don't make it "Hitman: Agent 47." "American Ultra" is the far superior take on the unknowing superspy, because it takes itself far less seriously and can actually poke fun at the genre. "Hitman: Agent 47" was just never...

  • 'Sinister 2' review: Spooky, goofy tale

    'Sinister 2' review: Spooky, goofy tale

    Horror sequel "Sinister 2" is a very strange movie. Of course, it's a horror film, so strange, ghostly, and sinister events are expected. Yet this is a horror film that doesn't quite know what it is. You can't tell if the filmmakers (director Ciarán Foy and screenwriters Scott Derrickson and C....

  • 'Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World' review: Peek inside artist's haunted mind

    'Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World' review: Peek inside artist's haunted mind

    When "Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World" introduces us to its subject, the Swiss artist best known for designing the memorably creepy alien in the movie "Alien" (which won him an Academy Award), he seems on death's door — in more ways than one. Shuffling unsteadily through a dark old house teeming...
