Men, Women & Children

Writer-director Jason Reitman has a gift for the comic and calamitous in everyday life (see Juno, Up in the Air). But he’s lost his touch in Men, Women & Children, a scolding sermon on the evils of the Internet. Dad (Adam Sandler) is addicted to porn. So is his son…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

The Two Faces of January

The shivery, sexy suspense of a Hitchcock thriller is deliciously dished out in The Two Faces of January. Screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive), in a potent directing debut, explores the psychological depths in the 1964 novel by Hitch favorite Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley). On a vacation…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Jimi: All Is by My Side

It’s a trade-off with biopics on dead rockers: You please the James Brown estate and get the music (Get On Up); or you go warts-and-all, like first-time director John Ridley in Jimi: All Is by My Side, and forego rights to “Purple Haze” and other classics. Ridley, whose script for 12…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

The Equalizer

Denzel Washington doesn’t have to say a word. He can do more with a move, a head tilt, a shot of fire in the eye than most actors do with pages of dialogue. That’s a star, baby. Washington drives The Equalizer, an updated, ultraviolent take on the 1980s TV series…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Gone Girl

David Fincher’s shockingly good film version of Gone Girl is the date-night movie of the decade for couples who dream of destroying one another. Expect a stampede at the box office. Gone Girl is a movie of its cultural moment, an era when divorce won’t cut it if there are…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

The Guest

Brit actor Dan Stevens couldn’t have picked a better vehicle to explode his proper image as Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey. In The Guest, Stevens plays David, a U.S. soldier who intros himself to a family in New Mexico as the BFF of their son, who was killed in Iraq……. Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

This Is Where I Leave You

This comedy about a death is a funeral for the audience. But, hey, here’s your chance to sit shiva with an all-star cast, led by Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll, who are all led astray by a smarmy script and sitcom-y direction by Shawn…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Tusk

If you’re a Kevin Smith junkie, as I am, you’ll appreciate the verbal pinwheels he spins around the horror genre in Tusk. If not, go dull your brain cells at Hollywood multiplex gunk. Tusk feels as offhand and undercooked as a podcast, which is how it started for Smith, so…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews

Tracks

Tracks sounds like a slog, the true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) as she treks 1,700 miles across the Australian desert with four capricious camels and a black dog named Diggity. The journey, which spawned an article for National Geographic and a global bestseller, begins in April 1977 and…… Source: Rollingstone Movie Reviews
