    Even if you know nothing of Panem, mockingjays and Katniss Everdeen (silly names, ahoy), skip this darkly suggestive first chapter of a soon-to-be-major sci-fi franchise at your own risk. The source material is a young-adult series—Suzanne Collins...

    Teenage rebel, 1930s Olympic runner, WWII prisoner-of-war survivor: Why has it taken so long for Hollywood to make a film about the incredible life of Louis Zamperini? Angelina Jolie’s third film as a director is a gorgeously shot and hard-hitting...

    What’s in the woods? A-listers dressed like Game of Thrones extras, belting out show tunes. Into the Woods, the 1987 fairy-tale mash-up musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, has fallen under Disney’s spell, getting the lavish big-screen tr...

    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...
