Review: Director Brandon Camp's "Benji"
It's been a mere 14 years since the last "Benji" movie. But in dog years, that's an eternity. "Benji," which lands on Netflix on Friday, is an earnest attempt to rekindle the most earnest of film franchises, which dried up with "Benji: Off the Leash!" in 2004. In an entertainment world more...

Review: Director Roar Uthaug's "Tomb Raider"
In "Tomb Raider," which has elements of "Indiana Jones," ''Batman" and even "Tron: Legacy," but with an angsty young woman at the center instead of an angsty young man, Alicia Vikander takes a lot of beatings. She is punched in the face, and in the stomach, she is thrown against rocks and sent...

Oscars, Grammys Deliver Diminished Nielsen Returns
After Nielsen's brutal morning-after report cards for the Oscars and Grammys this winter, it's worth asking whether television viewers are losing interest in watching the entertainment industry's most prominent people celebrate themselves. The Academy Awards reached 26.5 million viewers, easily a...

Review: Director Greg Berlanti's "Love, Simon"
Some things are universal about being a teenager: The budding sexuality and sense of identity, the dramatic emotions, the profound need for acceptance and confusing inklings of first love. Countless movies (and books and songs and TV shows) plumb the agony and elation of teen romance, but "Love,...

Review: Armando Iannucci's "The Death of Stalin"
Just as history enshrines its heroes, it aggrandizes its villains. The most fearsome perpetrators of evil can become calcified in the horror of their atrocities. It becomes easy to imagine them as stern, foreboding figures who could have only earned their impunity through obsessive, bloodthirsty...

Review: Director Ava DuVernay's "A Wrinkle in Time"
Go ahead, pick your favorite young, villain-vanquishing fantasy heroine. Meg Murry probably came first. Katniss Everdeen? She arrived in 2001. Hermione Granger? That was 1997. Elphaba, the green girl from "Wicked"? 2003. But Meg, the reluctant, bespectacled heroine of Madeleine L'Engle's classic "A...

Review: Director Samuel Maoz's "Foxtrot"
Watching the Israeli film "Foxtrot " is like watching a dream play out. Writer-director Samuel Maoz's ("Lebanon") excellent film is of course more structured than the average dream (or nightmare), with themes and Greek tragedy twists that are expertly crafted to test the heart, but there is a...

Review: Director Francis Lawrence's "Red Sparrow"
In the James Bond films, sex with a globe-trotting spy seems to be fun, fun, fun. A martini, a tuxedo, a witty line or two and then it's off to a luxurious bed with two tanned, muscular bodies. Not so in the new thriller "Red Sparrow ," where the sex is cold, ugly and often violent. This dark,...

Script Scrutiny Vital To Tracy Letts, Known For Supporting Roles in "Lady Bird," "The Post" 
If you want to get Tracy Letts in your movie — and that might be a good idea since he has two up for best picture at the Oscars — you'd better proofread the script before you send it. Letts, who has supporting roles in "Lady Bird" and "The Post," is also a Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning...
