'Ant-Man and The Wasp' is marred by excess. Too many characters, too many story shards—a rescue mission, two sets of baddies chasing down the quantum technology, a romantic subplot, a family film angle—too much exposition and too much quantum theory.
The jokes and the set pieces are bigger and badder but it’s the mushy stuff that prevents “Deadpool 2” from slipping solely into freak show mode. It's a movie that works both as a superhero flick and as a twisted family drama.
"Tully," new dramedy from Oscar nominated director Jason Reitman, presents an often-used stereotype, the stressed out mom, then takes the story to some unexpected places, writes CTV News contributor Richard Crouse.
Based on the novel of the same name, 'Ready Player One' isn't a reboot or reimagining of a comic book or old film, it's an original story with enough pop culture icons to warm the hearts of any nostalgic moviegoer.
“A Wrinkle in Time” contains good messages for kids and some visuals that will make your eyeballs dance and it is made with heart but it feels like it bites off more than it can chew, says film critic Richard Crouse.
Watching “Fifty Shades Freed", the final movie in the trilogy, feels like breaking up with someone you know you’ll never see again. You feel relief that it is over mixed with regret that you wasted all that time in the first place, says film critic Richard Crouse.
Based on Doug Stanton’s non-fiction book “Horse Soldiers,” “12 Strong” is both conventional and unconventional in its approach. Structured like a traditional war film, it’s also the first time (to my memory) we’ve seen modern warfare on horseback on the big screen.
