A considerable upgrade over the first "Hunger Games" movie, "Catching Fire" comes across more like a remake than a sequel.
A young adult fiction binge has broken out in "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
On and off screen, it's been a bruising summer for Hollywood.
A guide to movies from a family perspective:
It's one of the saving graces of "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's new mega-budget monsters vs. robots extravaganza, that at a key juncture, it knows how to make fun of itself.
The building is nondescript on the outside, but taking a few steps inside Life Sciences A on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus reveals animal skulls, two bright red Gila monsters, several preserved plants and fish and the largest bugs seen this side of a dinosaur movie.
"Despicable Me 2" is trampling the Johnny Depp Western at the holiday box office, according to studio estimates released Friday. The animated Universal sequel has collected three times more than the Disney cowboy caper since both films debuted Wednesday (plus limited Tuesday-night showings).
School's out, and video-streaming services Netflix and Amazon have come up with new ways to ward off summer-vacation boredom while going head-to-head in a battle for your kids' screen time.
I, for one, am officially fed up with movies about zombie outbreaks, mutant outbreaks, virus outbreaks, and outbreaks in general. To be fair, the end of the world/global epidemic genre can still be done well. The best recent example actually isn’t a movie, but “The Walking Dead: The Game,” which packed in more drama, thrills and heartfelt character development than the AMC TV show of the same name. Such compelling characters and genuine terror are missing from “World War Z.” It’s surprisingly hollow, surprisingly bland, and, most unforgivable of all, surprisingly boring.
In Pixar's "Monsters University," a prequel to 2001 "Monsters, Inc.," our expert "scarers" to be — the wisecracking pipsqueak Mike Wazowski and the burly James B. Sullivan — are college freshmen with high aspirations.
Brad Pitt wanted to build a better blockbuster.
This film publicity image released by Disney-Pixar shows a scene from "Monsters University."
ORLANDO, Fla. — If there's ever been a summer to visit a theme park — or two, or three — this is it.
When one thinks of the Holocaust film genre, dramas such as “Schindler’s List” and “The Pianist” instantly come to mind for their harrowing portrayals of victims and survivors who suffered at the hands of Nazis. But what about the German survivors – more specifically, the children of Nazi war criminals forced to come to terms with the atrocities of their parents? This is a question posed by the exceptional new German-language film, “Lore,” Cate Shortland’s follow-up to her acclaimed 2004 feature “Somersault.”
Suspending disbelief is a part of watching most any action film, where bullets fly like birds and mayhem explodes as easily as a shaken soda can. But even in such a contrived movie world, it's asking far too much for us to accept that Noomi Rapace would be hounded as a "monster" for a little scaring around her left eye.
It's not really news that Arnold Schwarzenegger is back this year. Everybody else in Hollywood is, too, so why not the former California governor?
A filmmaker making his narrative directorial debut at the helm of one of Hollywood’s most talked about biopics in years? Sounds like a bit of a gamble. With Sacha Gervasi, though, it might have just been the right risk to take.
The heralded holiday movie season is marked by big-budget extravaganzas, Oscar hopefuls and family films suitable for post-Thanksgiving or early Christmas viewing and for filling that luxuriously open week (for some lucky workers and students) before New Year’s Day.
Finally — finally! — the “Twilight” franchise embraces its own innate absurdity with the gleefully over-the-top conclusion, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.”
“That movie would have been infinitely better if it had been shown in 3-D.” I cannot speak for the rest of the movie going population, but this is one sentence I will never utter walking out of a cineplex. That is not to say 3-D technology is completely expendable. With the right movie, 3-D can be effectively exploited and have an enriching impact on a cinematic experience. In a majority of cases though, 3-D merely acts as a shameful method for the studio to increase the ticket price. Some people buy into the assumption that 3-D makes a movie appear more realistic and integrates the audience into the action. When not properly executed, however, 3-D can have dark, dreary and distracting consequences on a film originally shot in 2-D. In that sense, 3-D not only robs the audience of an extra $3, but also takes them out of the motion picture.

Barry Levinson, director of such modern American classics as "Diner," ''The Natural" and "Rain Man," makes a surprising venture into the horror realm with "The Bay," an unnerving fright fest about a coastal July 4 celebration that goes horribly wrong.
Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” is like the love child of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” and “TRON.” Where “Roger Rabbit” brought together a collection of classic toons such as Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny, “Wreck-It Ralph” assembles a roster of video game characters that includes Sonic the Hedgehog and Q*Bert.
