Insidious Chapter 3 Poster

Insidious Chapter 3

Review by Christy Lemire

By the end, you feel the characters' sense of loss and grief, of catharsis and eventual closure. There are legitimate stakes here, not just cheap thrills.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence Poster

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

Review by Simon Abrams

It's a series of comedic sketches about people who are too self-involved to empathize with each other. It's also a plaintively blunt wake-up call, and an effective demand for viewers' vigilant sensitivity.

Entourage

Review by Brian Tallerico

At the end of HBO's "Entourage," the characters were wildly successful, rich and happy. Guess what? They still are!

Spy

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

The true measure of a comedy is always how much you actually laugh. As long as the chuckles exceed the body count, all is good.

The Nightmare

Review by Sheila O'Malley

In The Nightmare, Ascher leads us into that other-world of terror where the darkness is alive. And it moves on its own. And it's coming to get you.

Testament of Youth Poster

Testament of Youth

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

While all of the actors' work deserves commendation, special praise must be given to Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress who does an amazing job conveying one young Englishwoman's strength, resilience, intelligence and vulnerability.

Hungry Hearts Poster

Hungry Hearts

Review by Glenn Kenny

Painful in a completely unrewarding way. It is earnest and tortured and pointless, in a very self-serious suffer-for/with-art fashion.

Wild Horses Poster

Wild Horses

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

While the mix doesn't always cohere, the film boasts moments and scenes that rank with Duvall's best work.

Freedom

Review by Peter Sobczynski

One of those movies that is as dull as it is well-meaning and man, is it ever well-meaning.

We Are Still Here Poster

We Are Still Here

Review by Glenn Kenny

Once the viewer finds him or herself comfortable with the idea that it's going for mildly-spine-tingling rather than gut-punching and eyeball-violating, all holy hell breaks loose. Which in this case turns out to be a pretty hellishly good thing.

Police Story: Lockdown Poster

Police Story: Lockdown

Review by Simon Abrams

An uneven but satisfying hostage crisis thriller that is also a perfect example of the type of late-period films martial arts star Jackie Chan has decided to make after entering middle age.
