'Hands of Stone' review: Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez do OK with bantamweight script

With "Hands of Stone," Robert De Niro officially enters his Burgess Meredith-in-"Rocky" phase, bringing the ringside grizzle and rumpled gravitas by the pound. In writer-director Jonathan Jakubowicz's peppy, none-too-probing biopic of Panamanian champion Roberto Duran, played by Edgar Ramirez, the "Raging Bull" Oscar winner (and let's not forget "Grudge Match") takes the role of legendary trainer Ray Arcel. He's the man behind the man. And good or bad, there's always a man behind the man in boxing.

Movie review: 'Southside with You' a perfect look at first date of future first couple

"Politics? Maybe," so shrugs a young Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) in Richard Tanne's "Southside with You." At the moment, he's got more important things to focus on - namely, his companion, Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) and whether they're on a date or not. Tanne's film follows the first date of the future first couple, "Before Sunrise" style. It's a little bit about politics, but mostly just about these two remarkable people, their life stories and what they want to do in the world, which at this time is simply "more."
