'Patriots Day' review: A serviceable tribute

Considering "Deepwater Horizon" came out just a few months ago, we weren't exactly hurting for another story of working man Mark Wahlberg kissing his beautiful wife goodbye before he unknowingly heads off into a real-life tragedy. But "Patriots Day" - a film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing directed and co-written by Peter Berg - isn't really about one man. It weaves together slices of life on that fateful day, never digging into characters but instead presenting a portrait of Boston as a living entity.

Movie review: 'Resurrection of Gavin Stone' is a new take on Christian-themed movies

Here are three descriptors for a movie that you thought you'd never see placed together: "faith-based," "comedy" and "produced by WWE Studios." Somehow, "The Resurrection of Gavin Stone" fits all three. It's the story of a washed-up, hard partying former child star, Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton), who finds redemption at a church in his small hometown. He initially shows up to perform some court-mandated community service hours, and sticks around to participate in a church play, playing Jesus Christ himself. Turns out that all that getting into character can't help but rub off on him.

Movie review: Keaton fascinating as Kroc in 'The Founder'

The title "The Founder" is in some ways a perplexing descriptor for a biopic of Ray Kroc, the man who took the McDonald's burger restaurant from a local favorite to a global behemoth. Truth be told, he's not the founder of McDonald's. But the title fits Kroc's specific approach to success, a version of the American Dream that states, if you want something, go out and take it - even if it belongs to someone else.
