‘Lucy’ way too out of this world

Family movie sends bad message

What if I told you a movie was about four bikers who destroy a pawnshop, cause significant damage to a bar and are chased out of it by angry drinkers? Then I told you the same four bikers break into a private residence and a barn, steal two cars, crash a high school party where everyone is drinking and having sex and commit other serious crimes.

In many ways, "22 Jump Street" is a typical comedy of the mid-teens.

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ refreshingly fun

"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.

Newest 'X-Men' best film of the summer so far

Each year, critics and fanboys eventually start arguing over which summer blockbuster is the best of the season.

Chris Rocks' stand-up stands out in ‘Top Five’

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.
