Movie Reviews

Song to Song

A frustrating exercise in avantgarde filmmaking, only for die-hard-Terrence Malick fans.

Power Rangers

Surprisingly, it's the angst and teen adventure element of “Power Rangers” that works, that sets it above other similar franchise reboots


A smart, effective but derivative take on the familiar tale of scientists stumbling across new life, only to find it wants to eat their faces.

T2 Trainspotting

"Trainspotting" was edgy, groundbreaking cinema. “T2 Trainspotting” enjoyably underlines many of the same themes without adding any meaningful postscript.

Beauty and the Beast

A live-action remake of the 1991 animated Disney classic, “Beauty & the Beast” makes a tale as old as time feel new, magical and familiar all at once.

The Sense of an Ending

Jim Broadbent shines in this contemplation of regret and memory, which is really the story we tell ourselves about ourselves.

The Last Word

"The Last Word" is a good-enough dramedy to hold a place of honor on screen legend Shirley MacLaine’s filmography.

Kong: Skull Island

Gloriously funny and thrilling, the year's first real thrill-ride blockbuster delivers in a big way. No bones about it: This Kong is the real deal.
