'Still Alice' sanitizes Alzheimer's disease
Alec Baldwin and Julianne Moore star in a scene from the movie
Alec Baldwin and Julianne Moore star in a scene from the movie "Still Alice." The Catholic News Service classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian. (CNS photo/Sony)
The real depredations of Alzheimer's disease and its toll on the families of the afflicted are not on display in the flawed drama "Still Alice" (Sony Classics).

'American Sniper' may hit home for veterans
For those seeking an insight into an individual veteran's perspective on the Iraq War, director Clint Eastwood's sober drama "American Sniper" (Warner Bros.) -- which stars Bradley Cooper as real-life Navy SEAL Chris Kyle -- will likely hit home.

'Wedding Ringer' bogged down in nastiness
Moviegoers should avoid putting themselves through "The Wedding Ringer" (Screen Gems). Under co-writer Jeremy Garelick's direction, what could have been a touching comedy bogs down instead in juvenile nastiness.

'Paddington' is a gift for entire family
Hollywood offers a belated Christmas gift in "Paddington" (TWC-Dimension), a delightful, warmhearted comedy for the entire family.

Book captures spirit of 'Ms. Rosie'
When Holy Names Sister Mary Bertoli left in 1991 to volunteer in the Mississippi Delta, she intended to stay for one year. She was there for 10. Now she has written “Catching the Spirit of Mississippi’s Ms. Rosie,” a  book filled with stories, reflections, advice and thoughts from one of the most inspirational people she met during that decade.

Comic strip not old, just timeless
Nancy is cool again. While many may only dimly remember her as a mid-20th century comic-strip character, the girl with the dot eyes, Brillo hair and a sidekick named Sluggo has been rediscovered by her genre's current elite.

Selma: A battle in the struggle for African-American equality
Arriving on screens almost precisely 50 years after the events it portrays unfolded, director Ava DuVernay fact-based drama "Selma" (Paramount) compellingly recreates a crucial battle in the long struggle for African-American equality.

'Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death' fails to excite
Though far friendlier than the 2012 movie to which it serves as a sequel, "The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death" (Relativity) makes for a dull horror outing. Director Tom Harper tones down the original's troubling theme of children lured to suicide, and Jon Croker's screenplay excludes all objectionable language. Yet, while their mostly decorous follow-up provides the occasional start, it fails to excite much interest.

'Imitation Game' about famed mathematician Alan Turing
In the pantheon of dramas about famed mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954), "The Imitation Game" (Weinstein) is distinctive for its plucky, aphorism-spouting World War II code-breakers, its chocolate-box Bletchley Park setting and its oblique treatment of sexuality.

Joan of Arc: A Life Transfigured
Along the way to completing her new biography of St. Joan of Arc, Kathryn Harrison renewed her Catholic faith in a way that surprised her: She discovered the Latin Mass.

Family Theater makes steps back toward TV production
Family Theater Productions -- the entertainment-with-a-message arm of Holy Cross Family Ministries, was first known in the pre-TV era for its weekly "Family Theater" radio anthology, in which stars of the day acted out radio scripts.

'The Gambler' veers between pessimism and naive romanticism
Perhaps intended as a giddy ride through the gritty world of underground betting, "The Gambler" (Paramount) comes off instead as a bleak drama whose underlying outlook veers between materialistic pessimism and naive romanticism.

Positive values permeate 'Unbroken'
Positive values permeate the inspirational fact-based drama "Unbroken" (Universal). Despite its admirable qualities, however, the film also represents something of a missed opportunity.

Book mixes cultural wars with parenting advice

For middle-class Catholic parents clueless about methods for incorporating moral values into their children's upbringing, "Teachable Moments" by Marybeth Hicks can provide a start.

Lecture examines Christian art history
A traveling lecture and slide show available in Oregon moves through 2,000 years of art in the Christian Church, from the catacombs of Rome to the Gothic cathedrals of Europe to modernity.

Power of love at core of 'Top Five'
At its core, the romantic comedy "Top Five" (Paramount) is a well-intentioned look at the redeeming power of love.

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' big and boring
The bad news is that director Ridley Scott's 3-D epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" (Fox) turns out to be big but boring. The good news is that, somewhere, Cecil B. DeMille is at ease, knowing his 1956 blockbuster "The Ten Commandments" remains the definitive mass-media take on this crucial portion of the Old Testament.

'The Pyramid:' things that go bump in the Egyptian night
Cross "The Mummy" with "Alien" and you get "The Pyramid" (Fox), a schlock horror film about scary things that go bump in the Egyptian night.
