- Movie Review
'42' effectively portrays Jackie Robinson
A traditional telling of Robinson's historic breaking of baseball's color barrier, the film is also emotionally moving, authentic and filled with big performances, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Evil Dead' lacks campy humor, abounds in gore
There are buckets of blood and several moments that will make most any viewer jump, Steve Ouellette writes.
'G.I. Joe' fails on many fronts
"Made by Hasbro" might be a great selling point for a children's toy, but it's a giant red flag when it's slapped on a movie, Steve Ouellette writes in his movie review.
'Croods' a warm, funny affair
The prehistoric animated romp is a broad, slapstick affair with plenty of cheap laughs, but it also has warmth and a smidgen of intelligence behind it, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Incredible Burt Wonderstone' limp, predictable
Film boasts talented cast, but laughs are lacking, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Oz' undeniably entertaining, imaginative
"Oz the Great and Powerful" will not be a classic remembered 70 years from now, but it fits in nicely with the Oz mythos, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Jack the Giant Slayer' family friendly
Don't let the title fool you. "Jack the Giant Slayer" bears little resemblance to the children's fable of the same name, leaning more on the oft-retold tale of "Jack and the Beanstalk."
- 'Dark Skies' mostly silly and familiar A slow-moving combination of the haunted-house and alien-abduction genres, the film has some creepy moments, a scare or two and some game performances by a solid cast, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Die Hard' franchise should take a rest
Fifth installment in the series easily the worst of the lot, Steve Ouellette writes.
'Side Effects' offers thought-provoking entertainment
Movie has plenty of suspense and some real emotion, and director Steven Soderbergh takes it in some unexpected directions, Steve Ouellette writes.
