SPECTRAL Trailer: Netflix's Supernatural War Movie Hits this Week

I had big hopes for Spectral when it was announced that Legendary would be producing it. A big budget supernatural war movie blending the raw aesthetic of Black Hawk Down with the notion of a ghostly invasion sounded like a great...

Review: MOANA, Stereotypes Are Overturned, and Also Reinforced, on the High Seas

Spectacular beauty is on display throughout Moana, the 56th theatrical feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Even better, the film's protagonist is an admirable young woman who is determined to come of age on her own terms, without any adolescent...

Review: ALLIED, In the Territory Between Tribute and Parody

A ripe potboiler, Allied resembles countless World War II motion pictures, yet its intended tone is difficult to discern. Is it meant as a tribute? Or a parody? The answer lies somewhere between the two, obviously, for a movie that...

Review: RULES DON'T APPLY, Imperfect, Awkward and Kind of Marvelous

Kind of marvelous in its apparently single-minded devotion to a slender tale, Warren Beatty's return to directing is weird and ragged and amusing and endearing. Rules Don't Apply, which also marks Beatty's return to acting after a lengthy absence, follows...

Holy Shit! In KONG: SKULL ISLAND, The Ape Is Just The Beginning.

Tonight on ABC's Jimmy KImmel Live, Kong: Skull Island star Tom Hiddleston unveiled the new trailer for the massive monster movie I'm most excited about. There has been a lot of talk about the melding of worlds between Kong and...

Review: BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK Goes Nowhere

No, this isn’t a movie about someone who’s had too much to drink in the first half, and then has trouble locating a restroom during the break. Although that may’ve been a better film. As we're now two years beyond the surprisingly...

Review: ARRIVAL Tackles Big Ideas With Pure Elegance

They should have sent a poet. The imagining of humankind's first contact with alien lifeforms is territory well-mined in popular fiction and probably best executed in Robert Zemeckis's wonderful 1997 film Contact. With such great works in the past, is...

Destroy All Monsters: I Know How Badly You Want To Screw Up WONDER WOMAN, Warner Brothers, But Please Don't

Before we begin, two caveats: Caveat one: anyone, and I mean anyone, can cut a good trailer. Trailers don't mean a single thing. Let's all take a deep breath on this (but yeah, that's a great trailer). Caveat two: Patty...

Review: LOVING, Civil Rights Brought Home, Beautifully

There may be no more subtle, beautiful and accomplished film this year than Jeff Nichols' Loving. There might also be no film more in need of help being championed, a work surely going to be stampeded in a year where...

Review: TROLLS, Don't Worry, Be Happy

Beneath its cheerful surfaces, a noxious message underlies Trolls. The latest production from Dreamworks Animation features highly colorful visuals to enhance the tuneful karaoke of the primary narrative. The setup is that the monstrous, evil race of creatures known as...
