Three Billboard...
Really Great 83 Points 2017

This oddly titled gem is a crazy crime movie from MidAmerica, set in fictional Ebbing, Missouri, not in Fargo, North Dakota, or Hibbing, Minnesota, or a real hicksville you may know in the Central Time Zone.

Forbidding title aside, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing is readily accessible and se…

King of the Hill
Really Great 66 Points 1993

King of the Hill is a real life Little Rascals, what with pipsqueak brothers living alone during the Great Depression. Amazingly it’s the truthy autobiography of A.E. Hotchner, Paul Newman’s pal and business partner. Even if fictional, it would still charm and enlighten, as it’s a perfect fil…

Gone Girl
Great 66 Points 2014

Gone Girl stirs the pot, no doubt about that. Premiering amidst the NFL-stoked domestic violence uproar, this sordid thriller about a wife’s murder is akin to throwing gas on a fire. But never mind all that societal stuff, is it a good movie? Yes, a great one, albeit far from perfect.

The es…

The Founder
Great 83 Points 2016

The Founder is about the creation of McDonalds, if not necessarily about the founders of McDonalds. Those would be the McDonald brothers, not Ray Kroc, the salesman who turned their creation into a world-changing commercial juggernaut. Michael Keaton dominates this movie, just as Kroc did the M…

Winter's Bone
Very Good 96 Points 2010

Heroism and bravery have a new name, and that name is Ree. Just 17 years old, Ree’s as brave and heroic as any movie hero ever. Played by stellar newcomer Jennifer Lawrence, her quest – Winter’s Bone being a quest movie – is so virtuous and she’s so intrepid, so true, that you know she’s boun…

Ain't Them Bodi...
Very Good 66 Points 2013

This movie’s about Ruth and Bob, a fictional and extremely laconic Bonnie and Clyde. Plain names it’s got in spades, plainspoken words too. Plain, albeit a bit precious, e.g. the title: Ain’t Them Bodies Saints

Is that a question? No, it’s a Sundance sponsored project that comes up mostly…

The Good Lie
Very Good 17 Points 2014

Imagine being relocated from Sudan to Kansas. Apparently this kind of thing happens all the time thanks to charitable organizations. The Good Lie brings this to life in a heartwarmer of a tale which generates LOLs in unexpected ways. Think family movie with a kinder, gentler Reese Witherspoon …

The Assassinati...
Bad 66 Points 2007

Think the title is long? Consider yourself warned: this boring movie never seems to end, meandering for nearly 2½ hours. Plus it commits the deadly sin of assuming that the viewer is familiar with the particulars of Jesse James’ early legend, without which the poorly told story has no narrative…
