An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

After about 2 hours of politely watching and... read more re-watching the same slow motion sequence of Mark Wahlberg crashing through a plate glass window as things explode around him, I knew I'd seen all Michael Bay and "Transformers: Age of Extinction" had to offer. And yeah, I got bored. So, while visually speaking this film wasn't awful, sometimes a boring movie is far worse than a bad one.

  • And So It Goes (PG-13, 2014)

    Hitting its target demographic square in the AARP, Michael Douglas's latest lobs a softball romantic... read more comedy at older audiences that's safe at home because it never attempts to leave the plate. God bless Nora Ephron. She birthed the modern rom-com with When Harry Met Sally... That particular film displayed great edge and wit while still adhering to the classic man-meets-girl H'Wood formula. Then there's Nancy Meyers, who birthed a sub-genre comprised of overlong pensioner love stories with dated expressions for titles that WISH they were When Harry Met Sally... (Something's Gotta Give, It's Complicated). With And So It Goes, she's nowhere in sight but her fingerprints are all over it. It's not nearly as smart or funny as those aforementioned flicks but it does get one thing right: At just under 100 minutes, it's lean and keen. Unfortunately, the script plays it painfully safe. Predictable and full of situations recycled from other comedies, you can call the movie's shots like a seasoned billiard player. Still, the stars somehow make it like able even if you've already connected the dots straight through to the end.

    In this PG-13-rated comedy, a self-absorbed realtor (Douglas) enlists the help of his neighbor (Keaton) when he's suddenly left in charge of the granddaughter (Sterling Jerins) he never knew existed until his estranged son drops her off at his home.

    When did Meathead become the Head Chef of the Easy-Bake Oven? The great Rob Reiner directed When Harry Met Sally... 25 years ago. Now, he's helming a paler imitation. And granted, even a polishes gem like The American President proves paler in comparison than that modern classic. Still, in following The Bucket List with this, he pretty much boils down his formula to: Add Water and Mix. At least with Alex & Emma and Rumor Has It, he took chances. This fan hopes he does again. At least his supporting turn bears some comic fruit. The same can be said of Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton in spades. Boy, does he look more like his father with every flick (not a bad thing even if the similarity skews more Tough Guys than Spartacus these days). But he pulls off The Grumpy Old Man shtick like a seasoned pro, while she gives us a reminder of why we fell in love with her in Annie Hall, lounge singing and all.

    Bottom line: Feeble Attraction
  • Sex Tape (R, 2014)

    Re-teaming for the first time since the bad education given moviegoers in Bad Teacher, Jason Segel a... read morend Cameron Diaz fare even worse here, never managing to turn their Sex-Capades into Laugh-Olympics. At the outset, Sex Tape turns a funnier and more acerbic eye on the truisms of being Married...with Children than Segel's co-hort Judd Apatow did with This is 40. There endeth any moments resembling comedy, however. Also, This is 69 just wouldn't cut it as a title, so the focus falls on the proposal of making and aftermath of making - not the actual filming of - a sex tape, slow-building toward some expected hilarity that just never shows. As an audience member, you kind of hang back patiently waiting for this slow burn approach to finally deliver a whammy moment, fully thinking the long awkward scenes and drawn-out plotting is part of Sex Tape's eventual comedic payoff. Even the post-ending scenes shown over the credits, scenes where we finally get to the see the filming of the Sex Tape in a delayed manner similar to The Hangover's photographic reveal of their hazy fun-filled night, ultimately sets viewers up for disappointment. Worst of all, despite boasting an R-rating and salacious title, Sex Tape plays out tamer than the characters' humdrum lives. It's shame too because the case is firing on all cylinders.

    In this R-rated comedy, a married couple (Diaz, Segel) made harried by being parents decide to spice up their relationship by filming their first sexual encounter in months...only the video doesn't stay their secret for long.

    Cameron Diaz has never been better. She may've cut her teeth in comedy (My Best Friend's Wedding, There's Something About Mary) and honed it along the way (Being John Malkovich, In Her Shoes) but she doesn't make a wrong move here save for signing off on the half-baked script. Meanwhile, Jason Segel excels at playing a goofy put-upon everyman even when the only one putting anything upon him proves to be himself. Any beef with Segel gets directed toward his screenwriting. He and partner Nicholas Stoller have turned out A-Grade hilarity before (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement, The Muppets). In working from Kate Angelo's story idea and first draft, however, they just can't mine many funny moments.

    Bottom line: The Five-Year Disengagement
  • Lucy (R, 2014)

    Lucy is so ridiculously harebrained, that it becomes a compelling watch, like a train wreck. For abo... read moreut the first third of the film it's a fairly straightforward woman in peril story. Once Scarlett Johansson ingests the narcotic and she begins to understand how to manipulate its benefits, the saga becomes a superhero movie without a legitimate antagonist. Scarlett Johansson morphs from a trembling airhead into an instinctual killing machine. Her voice becomes a robotic monotone to boot. Apparently only stupid people show emotion. I kept wondering when someone else would simply take the same drug so they could oppose her on the same level playing field. Alas no one seemed to figure that out. That lack of sense ironically accords with everything else in this loopy film. The script lazily sets up a far fetched premise without even trying to explain why it would work.

    As her intellect grows so does the ludicrousness of the story. There's a moment where Lucy pages through time with her hands like she's playing a Dance Central video game. We watch her zip from Paris to New York's Times Square as the site transforms through various eras. While wearing Louboutins and a sexy black mini, she ultimately has an awkward meet and greet in the Jurassic era with Lucy the Australopithecus. Yes, I'm talking about the first hominid. Then they touch fingers like when God created Adam à la Michelangelo. I laughed so hard I cried. It's an efficient little thriller too. The whole thing clocks in at just 90 minutes. A trippy dippy delight along the enjoyable nonsense of concoctions like Congo and Anaconda. Lucy is not good in the traditional sense, but it is hilariously nonsensical in spite of itself. This is pure camp and on that level, it qualifies as an entertaining movie.

I liked Bad Teacher a little bit better than this film. Segel and Diaz have a great on screen chemistry but need a better script than this. Jack Black has a funny cameo appearance. I thought the scene at Rob Lowe's place was too over the top.
  • Lucy (R, 2014)

    Even putting aside the ridiculous premise, I didn't really have that much faith going into Luc Besso... read moren's latest. The French action legend hasn't made a truly good film since La Femme Nikita back in 1990. That being said, he hasn't made any terrible movies since then either, and this somewhat dubious trend continues with Lucy.

    As is the case with most of Besson's work, anyone with half a brain will be able to follow the storylne with little trouble. Lucy unintentionally ingests an experimental drug. This raises her mental capacity to ridiculous heights, effects-driven hijinks ensue. Pretty standard stuff really, and the leaps in logic are so glaringly obvious that ignoring them quickly becomes a distraction (why push cars out of the way you could simply fly over them?).

    Granted, this fact does not seem to go unnoticed by the film itself, as several welcome moments of self-awareness manage to slip themselves organically into the storyline. But even knowing of its inherent flaws is not nearly enough to save Lucy from its cliched, high-concept plot and bring action.

    Lucy: What did you do to my stomach?

    In the premise for Lucy, Scarlett Johansson's chara... read morecter is forced to deliver a package implanted inside of her, only to gain unique abilities after the package is ruptured. I am sure some kind of variation of that description is what got writer/director Luc Besson the means to make this film as a big studio movie, as opposed to a smaller release. With that in mind, it is almost as if Besson was able to pull one over on many, as he may have a film built up to be a slick, easy-to-digest, summer sci-fi/action film, but Lucy has more going on than one may expect. It is unfortunate that the film's ambition is masked underneath a wavy sense of actual science and Besson's own penchant for kinetic (and very violent) action beats, but a strong central performance and a very fast pace keep Lucy from ever slowing down in its brief runtime.

  • Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (PG-13, 2014)

    One last chance for peace.

    Excellent Film! Sequels can be a worry when coming from big s... read moretudios. Greedy cash-ins are all too familiar, where rather than stepping further into the world established by the predecessor and exploring unlimited opportunities in character and themes, they just add more antagonists, more action and more noise. It can also be worrying when the original director who helped see a great film through till the end is replaced in the next film. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a refreshing and involving take on an old franchise and director Rupert Wyatt set up such promise for its sequel. Matt Reeves takes over the reins here on Dawn...and thankfully has taking the film to a rare, brilliant new level. The film is set ten years after the first film. Whereas Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a stripped back study of the science at the core of the story, whilst investing us in the human drama, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes throws us head first into a very different world. The scope is immense and multi-layered. At one view, it's a dead, frightening post-apocalyptic world. At another, it's brisk, dynamic and visually arresting. Matt Reeves has such a masterful handle on every string and creates brooding scope, claustrophobic tension and powerful action sequences; all amongst a basic, but incredibly rich morality play which is raw and powerfully spoken.

    What is most fantastic about the character approach is nothing is clear cut. Good vs. Bad meet in the middle and spirals out to both sides. I could sit here and blabber about the complete awe I had of the major step up in visual effects of the Apes, but that's not what caught my attention. Right from the opening scene of an extreme close-up of Caesars eyes, I felt the characters. The performances from all stunt men and actors bringing life to these apes transcend the visual brilliance. It is collective. It is immersive. It is terrifying. Andy Serkis delivers one of his most satisfying performances to date. His dedication and his understanding of every thread and fiber of Caesars being are in every frame of this film. And I cannot forget to mention the all-out, aggressive performance from Toby Kebbell as Koba. He breaks the barrier of something quite terrifying and strong. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes transcends the Hollywood blockbuster. Not only does it deliver that rare sequel explores its world and characters further, but it's also richly told, beautifully and hauntingly portrayed and truly exciting and terrifying in equal measures. Quite possibly one of the best films of 2014.

    A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.
