    A watered-down adaptation that’s embarrassed to be wet, Fifty Shades of Grey is a sex-positive but hopelessly soft-core erotic drama that fails to be even a fraction as titillating as the E.L. James books that inspired it. And yet, that’s exactly ...

    You already know J.K. Simmons’s ferocious jazz teacher in the electrifying Whiplash if you’ve seen Full Metal Jacket, Battle Royale or Grizzly Man (he’d be the grizzly). Clad fully in black, biceps bulging, Simmons’s Fletcher exudes downtown attit...

    It’s Belfast, 1971, and Gary (Unbroken's Jack O’Connell), a young private in the British Army, is thrown in at the deep end of the Northern Ireland conflict. More than that, his hands are tied and there are bricks in his pocket. This quiet lad fro...

    Comedy seldom travels well from one culture to another, but to judge from the first episode of this engaging if uneven satire highlighting humanity’s baser instincts, it’s clear that Argentine writer-director Damián Szifrón has a knack for latchin...

    Spoofing James Bond is hardly a new idea (see Woody Allen in the 1967 Casino Royale, not to mention the entire Austin Powers franchise), but that hasn’t stopped writer-director Matthew Vaughn from trying his hand at a little counterespionage with ...

    Anyone with fond memories of the books or a dusty Paddington bear sitting on a shelf in their childhood bedroom can rest easy—this first-ever movie take on Peru’s furriest export is a cuddly, thoughtful triumph. But not too cuddly: The beauty of t...

    Jury duty, head lice, chlamydia—just a few of the things we'd hoped to get before a sequel to 2010's utterly inessential Hot Tub Time Machine. To that movie's small credit: Whenever star John Cusack smirked and shambled his way out of midlife cris...

    Hidden codes, secret meanings and mixed messages pulse through the reliable, old-fashioned, buzzing copper wires of true-life period drama The Imitation Game. Snappy and not too solemn, but perhaps not as much of a psychological puzzle as it could...

    At its best (which is often), director James Marsh’s affecting biopic of the cosmos-rattling astrophysicist Stephen Hawking plays deftly against schmaltz. Hawking, a great wit, has always seen the dark humor in his bodily predicament, the ALS-like...

    Do we dare watch Ava DuVernay’s civil-rights drama as a mere piece of historical re-creation (expert though it is), and not as a newscast of what’s happening right now? There’s nothing “finished” about the issue of American racism and fittingly, S...
