Review: ‘Good Dinosaur' sticks to the Disney-Pixar formula (+trailer)

Disney films have a tried and true formula, and “The Good Dinosaur” is no exception. However, there’s something rather soothing about the familiar, and when it’s executed well, it’s cinematic comfort food. The time-tested template is in full force in the latest Disney-Pixar flick: take one misfit youth, add parental peril and a journey away from home, where our protagonist learns a life lesson or two and displays some hard-won heroism. It’s worked time and again for everything from “Bambi” to “The Lion King.” If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This recipe is a family favorite.

Movie review: 'Victor Frankenstein' is a mashed-up mess

Someone left a copy of Mary Shelley's novel out in the rain, threw the wet mess into a blender, hit puree and came up with "Victor Frankenstein," the 758th movie retelling of the seminal horror tale, this time with a dash of Marvel Comics and a revisionist perspective thrown in for flavor. Although the mad doctor with a God complex (played by James McAvoy) gets title billing, the star this time is his faithful assistant Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), a circus sideshow freak whose hump turns out to have been a really big zit (no, seriously) and whose curved spine is quickly fixed by wearing a back brace. There, good as new!
