  • Hail, Caesar! (PG-13)

    Backed by Universal Pictures, Joel and Ethan Coen revisit the Hollywood satire of Barton Fink (1991), tossing together cartoonish Tinseltown archetypes (George Clooney as a dumbbell screen idol, Tilda Swinton as a pair of identical-twin gossip columnists) and swell parodies of MGM classics (an Esther Williams-style water ballet starring Scarlett Johansson, a Gene Kelly-style dance number starring Channing Tatum). more...

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (PG-13)

    A marked disappointment after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), this fourth installment in the franchise is a 157-minute holding pattern in which neither of the ongoing stories—Harry's conflict with the evil sorcerer Voldemort, the young schoolmates' coming-of-age at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft—progresses much. more...
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (PG-13)

    The fifth movie adapted from J.K. Rowling's best-selling novels introduces the wizard prodigy (Daniel Radcliffe) to another formidable adversary: the new instructor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, played by Imelda Staunton as a cross between Elizabeth II and Nurse Ratched. more...
