42 (2013)

Television veteran Chadwick Boseman gives a fine, canny performance as Jackie Robinson, the man who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Well, except for when he talks to his wife and infant son: then, writer-director Brian Helgeland’s script drives him into speechmaking about the ... (PG-13)

Death at a Funeral (2007)

The title is too harsh. The comedy doesn't die, it just labors, as a funeral at a country estate turns to fiasco and farce, beginning with the delivery of the wrong cadaver and escalating with a bottle of mislabelled hallucinogens. Matthew MacFadyen, Keeley Hawes, Alan Tudyk, Daisy Donovan, Rupert Graves, ... (R)

A Knight's Tale (2001)

The Dark Ages lightened up: a rock-and-roll songtrack (Queen, Bowie, BTO, others), a spontaneous eruption of disco dancing at court, a Nike insignia on a suit of armor, a Mademoiselle cover girl for a fair maiden, and a centuries-ahead-of-his-time democratic hero, a lowborn squire who skyrockets to superstardom in the ...

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015)

Serenity (2005)

The short-lived sci-fi TV series, Firefly, finds new life on the big screen, and latecomers are apt to feel at a decided disadvantage. The garbled storytelling and affected, facetious, rapid-fire style of dialogue, alternately highflown and down-home, will win few new converts, and will doubtless help to explain the short ...

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010)

If this horror spoof is not quite Shaun of the Dead, it’s because Friday the 13th is not quite Night of the Living Dead — you have to consider the source material. Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk star as a pair of genuinely good good ol’ boys who accidentally run ... (NR)

Welcome to Me (2015)

Open-faced Kristen Wiig stars as Alice, a borderline-personality woman who believes everything Oprah tells her about being a special person who deserves to win. And who, when she wins $87 million dollars in the lottery, decides to host a TV show about...herself. What starts out looking like a quirky attack ... (R)
