All Eyez On Me Review

All Eyez on Me is a loving tribute to Tupac Shakur, but its sloppy execution and scatterbrained story mean it will definitely not become the next Straight Outta Compton.

The Heart of the Film: Matt Schrader and Marco Beltrami on “Score: A Film Music Documentary”

The Book of Henry

“The Book of Henry” is a throwback to the Amblin-produced suburban sagas from the ‘80s, where the adults are usually clueless, the families are broken and children are our greatest hope. It’s “E.T. the Extraterrestrial,” but with an all-knowing boy genius as the Christ-figure alien. Show More Summary

Kill Switch

Indie sci-fi film "Kill Switch" is the worst kind of science-fiction film: the kind that coasts on a central gimmick instead of delivering either visceral or intellectual thrills. The gimmick in this case is that we navigate an alternate...Show More Summary

Once Upon a Time in Venice

After decades of kicking ass and taking names as one of America's foremost action stars, it's somewhat easy to forget that Bruce Willis began his career as a comic actor. Before "Die Hard," there was "Moonlighting," where Willis, alongside Cybill Shepherd, perfected casual, barbed banter as well as his sly wit. Show More Summary
