This forgettable, throw-away indy comedy has some funny moments, but they're sparse.
The strange but true story that gave us the term "Stockholm Syndrome" is brought to life with some inspired performances, but it ultimately fails to hold the audience captive.
”Avengers: End Game” is funny, exciting, a bit too long and a bit absurd...or in other words, it’s exactly what we’ve come to expect over the course of the 21 previous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies. “End Game” is the 22nd MCU film and is billed as the “final” installment for this particular group of superheroes.
And while it's a crowd-pleaser through and through, what wasn’t expected was for this last chapter to pack such an emotional wallop.
WARNING: What follows is a review of the film that DOES contain MILD SPOILERS, so proceed with caution.
Elle Fanning is one of Hollywood's best young talents, but she can't sing her way out of the uneven "Teen Spirit."
The latest film from Disneynature, "Penguins" waddles into theaters just in time for Earth Day.
From the pits of Hell, I sort of wish "Hellboy" would have just stayed there.
Heaven-sent for sure, there's a powerfully moving documentary in theaters this week that is all about the Queen of Soul.
