Gold (***1/2) is a beautiful loser

If you like McConaughey, then watch this film. If you are on the bubble and think he just may have gotten lucky, watch this film. Tell me if it doesn't make you feel like he's finally proved himself worthwhile.


Black Mass (**) is not moving

Someone messes up, they go for a car ride, they get whacked. Someone gets arrested, they talk (or don't) they go for a car know.

Ant-Man (*****): It’s about damn time

This movie is Paul Rudd, through and through. It is the role he's deserved after a career of being the best part of every film he's made. He does not waste his moment in the spotlight, and the film is all the better for it. There is heft to the film, but with his performance, it doesn't have to be an obnoxious weight. If he's not as serious as Captain America, he is every bit as earnest. Marvel's Cinematic Universe needs Rudd every bit as much as it needs Downey, Jr. or Pratt.
