The Grand Seduction

Contrived and formulaic but also sweet and brilliantly acted, "The Grand Seduction" is a comedy in the tradition of "The Full Monty" and "Billy Elliott," about a dying Newfoundland fishing town hatching in a complex deception to lure a petroleum plant.

Reviews

Maleficent

This revision of "Sleeping Beauty" is clumsily directed, and the effects and backdrops are CGI soup, but there are also images of primordial power, and Angelina Jolie is haunting.

Reviews

Don Peyote

This inept comedy about a stoner lapsing into apocalyptic reveries on the day of his wedding is a couple of notches above a home movie.

Reviews

Godzilla

It's less interested in a giant monster's destructive progress than in what it might feel like to be a tiny human watching it close up, or far away, or on TV.
