’13 Hours’ movie review

It has been a good half-year or so for prominent American directors giving their takes on John Carpenter movies. David Robert Mitchell gave us a spin on “Halloween” and “Christine” in “It Follows,” Quentin Tarantino brought the sublimated racial tensions of “The Thing” violently to the fore in “The Hateful Eight,” and now Michael Bay

Opinion: Pixar on steady decline

‘Jurassic World’ fails to wow audiences

Nicholas Amadeo Connector Contributor “Jurassic World” had a tough act to follow after the original “Jurassic Park” trilogy set the bar, evidently, a little out of reach.
