Movie review: 'Pele' traces soccer legend's early years

Brothers Jeff and Michael Zimbalist, noted documentary filmmakers, tackle their first narrative feature film in "Pele: Birth of a Legend," about legendary Brazilian soccer star and "Athlete of the Century" Pele. While the format may be new, the subject matter certainly is not: They know the worlds of both Brazil and soccer, from their excellent documentaries "Favela Rising" and "The Two Escobars," and are therefore a natural choice to bring Pele's early years to the screen.

Movie review: 'Captain America: Civil War' provides Satisfying superheroism

The solemn, wrecking-ball mediocrity that was "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" made either too much or not enough of its key themes: collateral damage; vigilante excess and the ethics of peacekeeping through extreme force; as, more to the marketing point, the bloodsport appeal of should-be crime-fighting allies beating the hell out of each other for what seemed like several days. Those bullet points return, to far livelier and more satisfying results, in "Captain America: Civil War," the latest Marvel Studios exercise in ensemble superheroism and the fine art of making big piles of money.

Peter Atencio, the silent partner behind 'Key & Peele,' makes his presence known throughout 'Keanu'

Ads for the new film "Keanu," which combines kitten cuteness and gangster hardness, proclaim it as coming "from the visionary minds of Key and Peele." That would be Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, stars of Comedy Central's sketch television show "Key & Peele," which concluded its fifth and final season in 2015 after having grown to have an unexpected cultural impact that garnered fans including President Barack Obama for their on-point sketches on masculinity, identity and race.
