'Pengiuns...' never takes flight

"The Penguins of Madagascar" is a spin-off from the successful "Madagascar" animated franchise, and while it has its moments of energy and humor, I think it would've been much more successful as a DVD release.

New 'Hunger Games' has sporadic action; good acting

The "Hunger Games" series continues with the recently released third installment, "Mockingjay - Part 1," which goes the same route that worked for both the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" series: Split the final chapter into two parts to milk the proverbial cash cow.

'Interstellar' is another Nolan classic

'Nightcrawler' is a masterpiece

"Nightcrawler" is nothing short of a revelation in filmmaking. It features a powerhouse performance by Jake Gyllenhaal and contains characters and an atmosphere that completely is in service to its story. I think if Michael Mann had made either "Broadcast News" or "Network," this is probably what it would look like.

'Fury' is realistic war drama

"Fury" is a World War II movie that provides a sense of intense, visceral violence and a semblance of authenticity that probably hasn't been seen since "Saving Private Ryan." I think this movie could be for WWII what Platoon was for Vietnam.

Game review: Imperial Assault is Star Wars in a box

When Fantasy Flight Games announced Star Wars: Imperial Assault at Gen Con, America's largest board game trade show in August, it quickly became the most anticipated game of the year. With Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures the company's top-selling line, and with“Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens” soon in theaters, a new big box Star Wars campaign game seemed like a sure-fire hit that didn't require a targeting computer.
