'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' review: Not for 'Ab Fab' newbies

After the off-putting "Entourage" movie and that second, egregious "Sex and the City" film, I'm stunned to report that the latest small-screen transfer to hit theaters, "Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie," occasionally justifies its merrily low comic existence. It helps, of course, when you have Joanna...

    'Lights Out' review: Watch out for the darkness

    Two good ideas is all a low-budget horror movie needs, really, to not stink. The 80-minute feature directorial debut "Lights Out" has two good ideas. One involves an imaginary best friend, or rather, frenemy, with a twist: It's not the child with the friend, it's the child's disturbed mother. The...

  • 'Equals' review: Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult feel all the feelings

    'Equals' review: Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult feel all the feelings

    Filmmaker Drake Doremus makes films about impossible love; difficult, complicated, bruising, fragile love. His latest, "Equals," leaves behind the realistic contemporary environments of his two previous features, "Like Crazy" and "Breathe In," for a sterile, dystopian future, but the emotional...

    'Wiener-dog' review: Todd Solondz tragicomedy is a canine tale in four acts

    Nothing softens up a hard-hearted auteur quite like the presence of a beloved animal. The Coen brothers demonstrated this conclusively a few years ago with "Inside Llewyn Davis," an exquisite ode to loserdom that was brightened, and at times upstaged, by a winsome orange tabby cat. And even that...

  • 'Our Little Sister' review: Siblings unite at father's funeral

    'Our Little Sister' review: Siblings unite at father's funeral

    "Our Little Sister" has to be seen to be believed. Not because it depends on huge explosions or special effects but because it doesn't. A delicate, unforced meditation on the bonds of family and the joys and wonders hidden in everyday life, this film is able to move audiences without apparent effort,...

    'Life, Animated' review: The magic of movies unlock a boy's mind

    The most heartbreaking moment in "Life, Animated," an absorbing and ultimately exhilarating documentary about the journey of an autistic boy into manhood, is hearing his parents describe their feelings as they watched their healthy, happy 3-year-old deteriorate before their eyes, losing the ability...

    'Nuts!' review: Entertaining slice of history offers lesson about hoaxes

    Hey there, how'd you like to see a part-animated, research-rich, narratively fleet documentary about an early 20th century doctor who a) discovered an impotence cure by grafting goat glands onto human testicles; b) was nearly elected governor of Kansas on a write-in ballot; c) built the world's...
