Ethan and Sophie take a retreat to a comfortable, if strange, vacation house, hoping to find one another again. They succeed... but in a way that plunges them into deep weirdness.

Life of Crime

By Charlie Nash | Friday Aug 29, 2014
As far as film adaptations of Elmore Leonard novels go, "Life of Crime" is a slight effort that doesn't reach the quality of greatness achieved in "Jackie Brown" and "Out of Sight," but the strong writing and performances still make it a fun crime romp.

The Expendables 3

By Kilian Melloy | Friday Aug 15, 2014
This is summer fun at its loudest, dumbest, and most ridiculously, cartoonishly violent. It's sure to be a big hit.

Frank

By Roger Walker-Dack | Friday Aug 15, 2014
Lenny Abrahamson's completely bizarre, but unquestionably genius, comedy is actually based on a real life Frank who used to wear a large papier-mâché head all the time.

Let's Be Cops

By Frank Scheck | Friday Aug 15, 2014
At one point during "Let's Be Cops," actor Damon Wayans Jr. has a scene in which a huge naked man's groin is inches from his face. That's a good approximation of what filmgoers will experience during this witless high-concept comedy.
