"Transcendence” recycles old technophobic plots and stock sci-fi characters in a sometimes silly thriller short on thrills and convincing human connections. Wally Pfister’s movie squanders an opportunity to capitalize on the suspenseful suspicion of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” then fails to bring fresh ideas to the ongoing debate over what exactly constitutes humanity in the future.
John C. Reilly brings personality to ‘Bears’
For the past several years, Disneynature has marked Earth Day by releasing a documentary celebrating Mother Nature. “Bears” is the studio’s latest nature doc with a twist. It’s more reality show than peer-reviewed research, and like any reality show, the creators have endowed their subjects with moxie, personality and drama.
Colin Firth fascinating in redemptive 'Railway Man'
The payoff for patient moviegoers observing Jonathan Teplitzky's restrained, fact-based drama “The Railway Man” is nothing less than a cinematic act of grace.
Trial and error lead to Kinnear's career
Greg Kinnear, star of the new movie “Heaven is for Real,” grew up in Indiana, and he said, “The Midwest is funnier than people on the coasts. They get it, you know? It's those cold winters, man. Keeps them inside and keeps them thinking! I know it sounds like a silly generalization, but I do think there's a warmth and a real sense of community when I come back to this part of the country.”
'Left Alive' a deliberate, focused vampire affair
At some point in “Only Lovers Left Alive” — indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's chilled take on the vampire genre — the constant, overt comparisons of drug addiction and blood food become obvious and slightly tiresome. The inventive twist on the undead immortals is that reclusive rock musician Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and his cosmopolitan wife Eve (Tilda Swinton) remain madly in love after centuries of cautious survival.
