Opening This Week
Guardians of the Galaxy
3 Stars

Nationwide - Exhibiting a frisky sense of humor and a poppy mischievousness without losing sight of its sometimes quite sensitive heart underneath, the film plays more like a winky-faced space opus than conventional superhero fare.

With "Magic in the Moonlight," Woody Allen appears to have made a movie just to make one, bringing to it little of the passion, urgency and inspiration that separates his superior efforts from his second-rate fillers.
