The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Wednesday Dec 17, 2014
The epic concludes in epic fashion; the film feels bigger than it does long, and after so many hours already spent in this fantastical land, that's saying something.

The Expendables 3

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Monday Dec 15, 2014
What "The Expendables 3" lacks in wit, charm and style it covers up with fight sequences and star power.

Guardians of the Galaxy

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Monday Dec 15, 2014
In modern space adventures like "Guardians of the Galaxy," Han Solo is the hero, supporting characters are cool but misunderstood geeks, and the super villains are kind of hot.

Exodus: Gods and Kings

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Friday Dec 12, 2014

John Wick

Judging from the trailer, "John Wick" is a taut, atmospheric thriller. Judging from the film itself, it's a comedy -- but then again, this is a Keanu Reeves vehicle.

Fury

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Friday Oct 17, 2014
David Ayer's "Fury" is a grisly, jingoistic slice of macho-porn disguised as a gritty war film.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

By Mahalel Kilian Melloy | Tuesday Oct 14, 2014
This newest installment in the X-Men film franchise marks the return of director Bryan Singer, who invests the film with moments of pure pop poetry. Film and director both benefit, so let's keep it that way from now on.
