Anthropomorphic aircraft take to skies again in 'Planes: Fire & Rescue'
Anthropomorphic aircraft take to the skies again in "Planes: Fire & Rescue" (Disney), a lively follow-up to last summer's franchise kickoff, "Planes."

Pro-marriage message of 'Sex Tape' hobbled by debased view of intimacy
"Sex Tape" (Columbia) is, arguably, a pro-marriage film centered on a couple whose love for each other is shown to be steadfast.

Lots of masks in 'The Purge: Anarchy'
Though it pretends to condemn violence, writer-director James DeMonaco's follow-up to his 2013 bloodbath "The Purge" is, in reality, little more than an exercise in barbarism.

Pop tunes, hackneyed plot line make up 'Begin Again'
Competent pop tunes are strung together by a hackneyed plot line in the romantic comedy "Begin Again" (Weinstein).

History of Roman empire could have filled three volumes
The long and winding "The Restoration of Rome" brings readers to the point -- if they ever finish it -- where they see how the bishop of Rome was the one to restore Rome's empire rather than the political rulers Theodoric, Justinian and Charlemagne, despite the great efforts of these three.

Marvel's 'Miracleman' hard to believe
"Miracleman," a 1980s British comic currently being reissued by Marvel, was an attempt at deconstructing superhero cliches. Violent and depressing, the series tells a story that's often as dated and hackneyed as the Superman tropes it seeks to dismantle.

Super-sentient simians are back
Those super-sentient simians are back in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" (Fox).

Media giants take turns going on consolidation buying sprees
WASHINGTON — In the media industry — or, as is the case here, the multimedia industry — the question continues to be asked: How big is too big? The telecom giants' answers seem to be: Not big enough yet.

'Deliver Us From Evil' not bad as far as genre goes
NEW YORK — As exorcism movies go, "Deliver Us From Evil" (Screen Gems) is better than most. Though sensational at times, director and co-writer Scott Derrickson's screen version of Ralph Sarchie's memoir "Beware the Night" (written with Lisa Collier Cool) does at least treat faith seriously.

Earth to Echo offers rewards
Yes, it's "E.T." meets "Stand by Me" with "Goonies" thrown in for good measure. But "Earth to Echo" is mildly diverting, with its wry observations on contemporary mores and a convincing subplot about Alex's experience-based fear of desertion.

'Tammy' held back by moral problems
NEW YORK — "Tammy" (Warner Bros.) makes a stab at adding pathos to the well-worn genre of road-trip-with-salty-granny. It doesn't quite come off, since the childlike title character, played by Melissa McCarthy, starts out as blithely stupid, with earthbound self-esteem, and ends up just the same.

Engaging book looks at role of clothing in U.S. Catholic history
From priests' Roman collars to nuns' veiled habits to schoolgirls' blue serge jumpers, American Catholics have long worn visually distinctive attire. Sally Dwyer-McNulty, a history professor at Marist College, has given us an intriguing and thoughtful examination of what Catholics were wearing at different times and why.

'Transformers: Age of Extinction' runs nearly 3 hours
With three-hour run time, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" has ridiculous dialogue and a heavy dose of vulgarity

'Mario Kart 8' supercharges Nintendo
Nintendo has just released a new game for the Wii U, "Mario Kart 8." Sales have been spectacular, and with good reason: "Mario Kart 8" pleases in every way. A racing game, it boasts joyful, nonviolent action, kid-friendly characters and graphics that break new ground.

No one unscathed in Yale professor's account of 1940s 'polio wars'
"Polio Wars" tells the story of the conflict between the medical establishment and "Sister" Elizabeth Kenny, who came to the United States from Australia in the early 1940s with a new idea for treating polio patients that flew in the face of standard practice at that time. Neither an accredited nurse nor a member of a religious order, Kenny received the title "sister" because of her status in Australia as a senior nurse.

Tunes are enjoyable in 'Jersey Boys'
Success on the stage does not easily translate into success on screen, particularly for a musical. And yet if the tunes are enjoyable, all is not lost. That's the case with "Jersey Boys" (Warner Bros.), a movie version of the long-running Broadway show about The Four Seasons, a 1960s vocal group.

'Think Like a Man Too' is vulgar follow-up to first film
A popular saying holds that "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." That may be true, but plenty of Sin City's debauchery is shared on screen in "Think Like a Man Too" (Screen Gems). This vulgar follow-up to the 2012 film is based, like its forerunner, on a best-selling book of relationship advice by comic Steve Harvey.
