"Edge of Tomorrow" is probably the most entertaining mess we'll see all year. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun watching a movie that makes so little sense.
Each year, critics and fanboys eventually start arguing over which summer blockbuster is the best of the season. It's probably too early to start that conversation, but it's unlikely any other major summer release will equal "X-Men: Days of Future Past" for screenwriting craft, characterization or complexity.
I am stunned to discover how many moviegoers are excited to see another "Godzilla" movie.
"Neighbors" is the next big comedy of the summer season and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a movie co-starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" swung into theaters last weekend, debuting at No. 1 in box office and officially launching the summer season.
It is entirely possible we have exhausted the potential of the mainstream super-hero movie. I say "mainstream" because it will always be possible for some daring storyteller to do something that turns the genre upside down.
Spider-Man slings us into the summer season this weekend.
Director Nick Cassavetes' female-bonding, cheating-husband-punishing comedy "The Other Woman" sets a new bar for erratic storytelling.
The British drama "The Railway Man" is based on the memoir of the same title by Eric Lomax, and the best thing I can say for the movie is it makes me want to read the book.
It was inevitable that Blue Sky/20th Century Fox would make a sequel to "Rio," a modest hit in 2011 that earned almost $500 million worldwide. That's what studios do: milk each intellectual property for as much box-office revenue as possible.
Another Marvel movie, another set of mixed reactions.
The Atlanta Film Festival runs from March 28 to April 6 with most events taking place at the Plaza Theatre or 7 Stages theatre.

"The Muppets" became a surprise hit in 2011 and rescued America's favorite puppet franchise from the brink of obscurity.
"Divergent" will inevitably be compared to the Hunger Games franchise, thanks to its totalitarian themes and teenage girl protagonist played by a talented, emerging star (Shailene Woodley).
No one other than Wes Anderson could have made "The Grand Budapest Hotel."
To what do we owe the second coming of the biblical epic?
Writer-director Chris Rock is not Andre Allen, the stand-up comedian turned movie star lead of "Top Five." But, it's almost impossible to watch his latest effort, a cutting comedy about showbiz, creativity and ambition, and not wonder what material Rock took from his own life. While that's a fun and compelling draw, thankfully, it's only part of the triumph of the film.
LOS ANGELES - All is not well in Panem. At the conclusion of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Katniss' (Jennifer Lawrence) force-field shattering arrow left the society in turmoil.
