    Review: 'After Earth' Provides Father-Son Counseling Within Generic Sci-Fi Trappings

    In regards to summer blockbusters, there’s a sense that we should grade on a curve. So count a couple of wins in M. Night Shyamalan’s column: “After Earth” is not one of those movies where you have to keep track of a million characters, each one having some sort of individual, arcane plot significan...
