Movie review: McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence are just X-meh in 'Apocalypse'

The stakes in the boringly apocalyptic "X-Men: Apocalypse" couldn't be higher. Its long-entombed, ready-to-party mutant god, played by Oscar Isaac is both invincible and immortal, and he wants to control every single mind in every single human on Earth. The world's nukes are unleashed willy-nilly, though that part works out fine. It's a "just kidding!" moment of imminent global destruction.

Movie review: 'O.J.' is so compelling you don't want it to end � even when it's already 7 hours long

He was, perhaps, the most famous American ever charged with murder. His story saw the incendiary intertwining of numerous contemporary obsessions: sports, race, celebrity, crime, even sex. His trial lasted more than eight months and involved more than 100 witnesses, producing 45,000-plus pages of testimony, multimillion-dollar costs and books and movies too numerous to mention. But where O.J. Simpson is concerned, the best may well have been left for last.

Movie review: 'The Ones Below' is a gripping and creepy thriller

The feature directorial debut of "Hanna" and "The Night Manager" writer David Farr, "The Ones Below" is a pregnancy/parenting thriller that's indebted to Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby," but this film is its own suspenseful animal. In paying homage to the family thriller genre, it weaves references to different classic films into its own uniquely tangled web of suspicion and secrets.

Movie review: 'Looking Glass' is an uninspired trip back to Wonderland

When Tim Burton's 2010 live-action version of "Alice in Wonderland" raked in a billion dollars there was no question that Disney would pounce on the opportunity for a sequel. Helpfully, Lewis Carroll did write a second book about Alice and her adventures in Wonderland, "Through the Looking-Glass," but it proves to be only a suggestion for the film, which arrives this weekend, to a very diminished return. It feels reverse-engineered to fit a release date, with a story that, though it takes wild liberties with the book's plot, manages to feel largely unimaginative and low-stakes.
