Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
A near-total drag, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" plays like a loose, unofficial quarter-billion-dollar remake of "The Odd Couple," in which Oscar and Felix are literally trying to kill each other. more
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
Back in 2002, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" became a bona fide cultural phenomenon, a romantic comedy that mined the cultural specificities of the Greek heritage of unknown writer and star Nia Vardalos. The film picked up an Oscar nomination for Vardalos' original screenplay, everyone began adding "My Big Fat" in front of various nouns, and we all learned a thing or two about the versatility of Windex. Fourteen years later, Vardalos and gang are back again for another wedding, but this time, it's to drastically diminished returns. more
The Divergent Series: Allegiant
The Divergent Series: Allegiant   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
Well, almost done. You know how it is. A franchise must eat and make hay while the sun shines and the customers still give a rip. more
Miracles From Heaven
Miracles From Heaven   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
In recent years, there's been a mini trend of faith-based films concerned with proving the existence of heaven. Based on true stories, films such as "Heaven is For Real" and "90 Minutes in Heaven" take up this task. Ostensibly following on their heels is the Jennifer Garner-starring "Miracles From Heaven," based on an amazing -- and weird -- true story. But while the film is centered on Christian-based faith, it argues for the powers of miracles that are of the more terrestrial and quotidian. more
10 Cloverfield Lane
10 Cloverfield Lane   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
"10 Cloverfield Lane" is only nominally a sequel to "Cloverfield," the scruffy li'l 2008 monster movie in which New York idiots ran around filming themselves while their city became the plaything of an intergalactic tourist. The new picture is that earlier film's neighbor down the street. And the neighbor lives in an underground bunker, where most of the story is set. more
The Brothers Grimsby
The Brothers Grimsby   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
First, the good news. "The Brothers Grimsby," Sacha Baron Cohen's latest exploration in pushing the boundaries of taste, gets a couple of things right. First and foremost, it clocks in at a tight 82 minutes -- it knows just how long its schtick will last. Secondly, co-writer and star Baron Cohen's Nobby Butcher, a working class British football hooligan from the town of Grimsby, is an entertaining character to throw into a spy parody. With his Liam Gallagher haircut and ever-present road beer, he's created a character that would be amusing to observe in just about any situation. more
Dheepan
Dheepan   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Justin Chang
The films of the French director Jacques Audiard roil with tension of every kind: political, ethnic, dramatic, aesthetic. He is a master of screen violence, someone who knows how to orchestrate action and mayhem for maximum stylistic flair and visceral impact. He is also a sharp and sensitive observer of race- and class-based malaise in his home country, as in "A Prophet," his galvanizing 2010 thriller about a French Arab outcast who morphs into a crime lord behind bars. more
London Has Fallen
London Has Fallen   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
After the fake (and occasionally authentic) cultural import of the annual Academy Awards, it should be refreshing to watch Gerard Butler shoot, stab and wisecrack a slew of anonymous Middle Eastern terrorists to death in "London Has Fallen." But the frenzied sequel to 2013's "Olympus Has Fallen," returning Butler to his security detail in the role of the U.S. president's infallible protector, works on a very low level of bloodthirsty escapism. Around the midpoint, long after London had fallen and couldn't get up without Butler's help, I was ready to escape the escapism. more

Eddie the Eagle
Eddie the Eagle   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
A cheery tale of unlikely sporting triumph, "Eddie the Eagle," directed by Dexter Fletcher, offers up a retro feel-good yarn about the power of determination. While it's often cookie-cutter sports movie conventional, you'd have to be stone-hearted to remain un-charmed by the story of real-life British ski jumper Michael "Eddie" Edwards, played by rising star Taron Egerton. more
