    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 have to hand it to Andy and Lana Wachowski: They don’t do things by halves. Fresh from blending dystopian sci-fi, period drama, cannibalism and just about everything else under the sun in 2012’s gloriously insane Cloud Atlas, they’ve taken a s...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    If Will Smith’s recent remorse over the failure of 2013 sci-fi disaster After Earth fooled you into thinking we were about to witness the all-guns-blazing rebirth of the original Fresh Prince, think again. His spiral into blandness continues with ...
