”Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb"
Comedy adventure, PG, 97 minutes
Sitting through the thoroughly tiresome final chapter in this trilogy, I wondered: Did anybody involved in the making of this movie actually believe it was a quality effort? Ben Stiller, Robin Williams and Owen Wilson are among the terrific actors sinking in the cinematic quicksand. Rating: One and a half stars.

”Exodus: Gods and Kings"
Action adventure, PG-13, 142 minutes
Director Ridley Scott's borderline-lunatic, bold, gargantuan and visually stunning epic is in some ways more reminiscent of his "Gladiator" than "The Ten Commandments." Playing an intense, sword-wielding, tormented, visionary Moses, Christian Bale humanizes one of the most iconic figures of all time. Rating: Four stars.

"Birdman"
Comedy and drama, R, 119 minutes
In the crowning performance of his career, the darkly funny, brooding Michael Keaton plays a faded movie star attempting a comeback by directing and starring in a Broadway play. This is a strange and beautiful and unique film, one of the best movies of the year.
Rating: Four stars

"Penguins of Madagascar"
Animation, PG, 85 minutes
From their first appearance in "Madagascar," Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico have been committing grand theft scene stealing. The four lovable, military-minded penguins became an instant fan favorite with their can-do attitudes. Finally, the Penguins — voiced by Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights and Conrad Vernon — are the stars of their own feature film. "The Penguins of Madagascar" tells the story of how the four became buddies and work together to make the world a safer place. Directors Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith could have easily relied on the cute nature of the characters to carry the film. They take advantage of those assets in their smart script. From the gung-ho way the penguins attack every problem to the wordplay using the names of celebrities (Dave: "Nicolas, cage them!") the film layers on the fun. And, as if the great animation and first-rate writing weren't enough, the film offers a sweet lesson about how everyone has a purpose, no matter how small.
Rating: Three and a half stars

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1"
Fantasy adventure, PG-13, 123 minutes
The latest Katniss Everdeen adventure is a rousing yet often bleak and downbeat film that focuses a lot more on tragedies and setbacks than applause-generating heroics. Ultimately it serves as a solid if unspectacular first lap around the track of a two-lap race.
Rating: Three stars
