'Patriots Day' review: A serviceable tribute

Considering "Deepwater Horizon" came out just a few months ago, we weren't exactly hurting for another story of working man Mark Wahlberg kissing his beautiful wife goodbye before he unknowingly heads off into a real-life tragedy. But "Patriots Day" - a film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing directed and co-written by Peter Berg - isn't really about one man. It weaves together slices of life on that fateful day, never digging into characters but instead presenting a portrait of Boston as a living entity.

Movie review: 'Resurrection of Gavin Stone' is a new take on Christian-themed movies

Here are three descriptors for a movie that you thought you'd never see placed together: "faith-based," "comedy" and "produced by WWE Studios." Somehow, "The Resurrection of Gavin Stone" fits all three. It's the story of a washed-up, hard partying former child star, Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton), who finds redemption at a church in his small hometown. He initially shows up to perform some court-mandated community service hours, and sticks around to participate in a church play, playing Jesus Christ himself. Turns out that all that getting into character can't help but rub off on him.

Truth be told, he's not the founder of McDonald's. But the title fits Kroc's specific approach to success, a version of the American Dream that states, if you want something, go out and take it - even if it belongs to someone else.
