Rating: ««« out of ««««

Running Time: 95 minutes

Rich people are awful. This is the assertion made by the film Ready or Not, and based upon the events depicted, it’s a pretty accurate portrait. It’s a gory, over-the-top horror effort with its tongue planted firmly in cheek that is reminiscent of titles like...

Running Time: 90 minutes

Over the past couple of years, there have been plenty of coming-of-age comedies about kids growing up, dealing with conflict and strife in their personal relationships and coming away with strengthened bonds. Good Boys veers in a slightly different direction, taking its tween leads and putting them in increasingly exaggerated, over-the-top and, well, gross situations. Along the way, they find themselves broaching the barrier into, if not adulthood, then adolescence. Thankfully, there are enough big laughs to earn it a recommendation.

Max (Jacob Tremblay), Lucas (Keith L. Williams) and Thor (Brady Noon) are 12-years-old...

Running Time: 109 minutes

It seems like there has become a whole separate genre of tear-jerker melodramas devoted to pooches and their influence in our lives. Marley & Me is an obvious example, and in the years following, we’ve gotten titles like Red Dog (which I admit, actually worked on me), A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey among many, many others. These movies aren’t exactly subtle and almost seem to revel in their emotional manipulations, doing everything they can to try and eke sniffles out of viewers. Based on the novel by Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain follows this trend, abandoning every ounce of subtlety.
