Selma
By: Courtney Pace Lyons
We need movies that show the horrors of our history in plain view. We need movies that stir our souls, quicken our heartbeats and empower our feet to take steps for change. "Selma" delivers. (Photo: Paramount Pictures)



"Exodus: Gods and Kings"
By: Cliff Vaughn
Ridley Scott can't or won't shake faith on film, but one thing seems certain: "Exodus" works best when it's about Scott's artistry, not Moses' theology – imagined or otherwise. (Photo: 20th Century Fox)



"Godzilla"
By: Brock Ratcliff
The new "Godzilla" does not disappoint. The monsters look great, and the destruction is grand and thorough. This is no mock-up of Tokyo being trampled by a man in a costume. (Photo: Warner Bros.)



"Heaven is for Real"
By: Roger Olson
Based on the best-seller about the purportedly true story of a 4-year-old's visit to heaven, "Heaven is for Real" is a surprising film, treating evangelical Christianity sympathetically. (Photo: Sony Pictures)
