Boyhood

  • Rated as: 5/5

Looking at it one way, Boyhood represents a spectacularly cheap way of saving on actors’ salaries: To capture his rambling yet absorbing Texas family drama, director Richard Linklater (Bernie, Before Midnight) received agreements from several performers—including his eight-year-old daughter,

Guardians of the Galaxy

  • Rated as: 4/5

To misquote Forrest Gump’s mother, Guardians of the Galaxy is like a box of chocolates. Or rather, it’s like a vast, family-size crate of chocolates, all wrapped in the shiniest packaging, all exploding with sweetness and surprises. Maybe there are a couple of flavors you don’t much care for,

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

  • Rated as: 4/5

Let’s face it, high-minded ideas are all well and good, but can they compete with a chimp on horseback firing an Uzi? Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) was as thoughtful as modern sci-fi gets, ditching the 1960s-born franchise’s gritty dystopian roots for a smart story of scientific
