    If you’re of a certain age (born in the early ’80s), the best part of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” comes after the movie is over, when the credits morph into the bright, cartoon style of the TV show we knew and loved, soundtracked to that indelible theme song.

This brings us to "Me Before You," written by ex-journalist Jojo Moyes. Moyes came to her 2012 romance between...

    'Weiner' review: Documentary tracks congressman's 2nd sexting downfall

    In 2011, seven-term Democratic Congressman Anthony D. Weiner's underwear selfies, emblems of a sex farce not intended for wide release, accidentally went viral.

    'X-Men: Apocalypse' review: McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence are just X-meh

    The stakes in the boringly apocalyptic “X-Men: Apocalypse” (opening May 26) couldn’t be higher.  Its long-entombed, ready-to-party mutant god, played by Oscar Isaac is both invincible and immortal, and he wants to control every single mind in every single human on Earth. The world’s nukes are unleashed...

    'Alice Through the Looking Glass' review: An uninspired trip

    When Tim Burton's 2010 live-action version of "Alice in Wonderland" raked in a billion dollars there was no question that Disney would pounce on the opportunity for a sequel.

    How 'Finding Dory' and 'Finding Nemo' deal beautifully with disabilities

    Growing up, I would see the look. My mother taught special-ed for many years, and when I accompanied her students on field trips, I was sensitive to how adults in the world would react facially, and then vocally, when encountering her pupils and realizing they had special challenges.
