Queen of Katwe
Queen of Katwe   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
A lot of Disney's fact-based sports movies stir the blood or, at the very least, satisfy our need for rousing underdog stories. Often the stories can be shaped so that a white protagonist runs the show, even if it's not really their show. "Million Dollar Arm" was like that; so was "McFarland, USA," both of which I liked -- despite the key characters, the competitors, being marginalized in their own narratives so that Jon Hamm and Kevin Costner could dominate the posters. more

Cigueñas: La Historia Jamás Contada 3D   ( of 4)

Welcome to the very strange, and strangely moving, world of "Storks." Writer-director Nicholas Stoller, known for his more adult comedies, such as "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Neighbors," delves into the family-friendly animated genre in a little movie about where babies come from. Or where they used to come from. In this world, the old wives tale of storks delivering bouncing bundles of joy is real history, though the birds have been relegated to delivering packages for CornerStore.com after one became too attached to a baby. more
My Blind Brother
My Blind Brother   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Andrew Barker
After living for more than a decade within the Apatovian slacker-comedy tradition, in which the joys of arrested development are smiled upon indulgently for a while before our heroes stride heroically and inevitably into maturity, it's weirdly refreshing to see a romantic comedy where selfishness, resentment and sloth are presented as unabashed virtues. Such is the charm of Sophie Goodhart's "My Blind Brother," which takes an ostensibly dark premise -- a man of few qualities attempts to steal his overachieving blind brother's girlfriend -- and turns it into a featherweight frolic as winningly unambitious as its central couple played by Nick Kroll and Jenny Slate. The film has "Netflix acquisition" written all over it. more

Blair Witch
Blair Witch   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Rick Bentley
It wasn't a smart script or great acting that made "The Blair Witch Project" a box office sensation in 1999. It was the creative way the movie was put together and promoted that created buzz around the quirky independent film. more

When it comes to poking the bear, and to depicting American history as the cyclical wising-up of its idealists, Oliver Stone remains the man with the plan, and the bullet points. more
Finding Dory
Finding Dory   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
Childhood and, in fact, the very act of being human involves a certain level of loneliness. The great news is, you can make money off it. For close to 80 years, if you go by Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" making history in 1937, all sorts and achievement levels of feature animation have preyed upon the fears, insecurities and isolating circumstances of growing up. The best Pixar features, like those pre- and post-digital from Pixar's parent company, Disney, have exploited that loneliness brilliantly, and the lesser Pixars have tried to do the same. more
Kicks
Kicks   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Robert Abele
For 15-year-old Brandon (Jahking Guillory), the frizzy-haired, undersized kid protagonist of Justin Tipping's agile feature debut "Kicks," navigating adolescence and a rough, depressed Oakland, Calif., neighborhood is like working a double shift that doesn't pay. He's got a status-bump goal, though, and the phrase "clothes make the man" isn't specific enough. more
Sully
Sully   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
The sight of a passenger plane along the skyline of New York is an image that has been seared in the global collective consciousness. It's a memory that "Sully," Clint Eastwood's new film, acknowledges, but also attempts to redefine. What if a plane skimming skyscrapers could conjure an image not just of unimaginable terror, but one of incredible heroism and skill? That's what "Sully" might accomplish, in committing to film the heartwarming story of "The Miracle on the Hudson," when Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger made a forced water landing on the Hudson River with 155 passengers aboard a U.S. Airways flight to Charlotte. more
