New movie releases

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby

  • Rated as: 3/5

The shortened version of a ambitious directorial debut is a garden-variety love story bogged down by clunky, Hallmark dialogue

God Help the Girl

  • Rated as: 3/5

Tusk

  • Rated as: 3/5

Even if Clerks feels a century old, you can't help but root for Kevin Smith, still a good-natured motormouth

The Zero Theorem

  • Rated as: 3/5

Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem is a lo-fi, future-tech farce with an air of high-end cyber intrigue

A Walk Among the Tombstones

  • Rated as: 2/5

Adapted from Lawrence Block’s thriller, this is a dour, exploitative crime story

This Is Where I Leave You

  • Rated as: 1/5

Nothing that happens between these dysfunctional family members compares to the torture that is watching this movie

A dingy-looking Brooklyn crime drama features fine work from Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini, but putters along dozily
