Calvary poster

‘Calvary’ is a well-acted and bittersweet Irish tragedy

At the beginning of “Calvary,” Brendan Gleeson’s Father James is told in confession that he will be killed. The man on the other side of the booth explains that he had borne years of sexual abuse at the hands of a priest, and even though he can’t revenge himself on man responsible, he will after one week kill Father James instead. Father James’s innocence is immaterial. In fact, if anything, it’s even better. “I’m going to kill you because you’re innocent,’ he says.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is improbably hard to mock

First we had the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” and now the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” What’s next, the “Midmorning of the Planet of the Apes” followed by the “Light Lunch of the Planet of the Apes?” And, eventually, the “Late Afternoon of the Planet of the Apes?”

The Giver Movie Poster

‘The Giver’ isn’t quite like the novel

The last year or so was improbably saturated with narratives about kids in dystopias. Bolstered no doubt by the success of the “Hunger Games” (the third installment, the awkwardly titled “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” is out in theaters now), movies like “Ender’s Game,” “The Maze Runner,” “Divergent” and even, to a certain extent, “Vampire Academy,” tried to capture the same metaphor: being a teenager is a lot like being the Chosen One in some futuristic fantasy world.
