    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 ...

    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 ...

    Deep into his career rebirth as a gruff-talking action hero, Liam Neeson looks like he’s having the time of his life slumming it. But Run All Night reminds you of a particular set of skills he’s been deprioritizing, namely his acting chops. A New...

    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...

    Watch your back, Liam Neeson. Sean Penn’s trying to steal your bad-guy-capping, getting-too-old-for-this-shit thunder. To be fair, The Gunman has loftier ambitions than the average Neeson run-and-shooter: Based on a popular French crime novel, it’...

    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 ...

    A silver fox for a silver crowd: Richard Gere is the magic card up the filmmaker’s sleeve for this warm if rambling sequel to the 2011 hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Novelist Deborah Moggach wrote only one book about a ramshackle Indian hotel...

    After the out-of-nowhere sucker punch of his 2009 debut District 9, Neill Blomkamp’s second film, 2013’s Elysium, felt like the work of a Hollywood-designed, blockbuster-producing robot: slick and anonymous. So it’s a huge relief to discover that,...

    A smart concept is thoroughly wasted in this cute but grating DreamWorks animated comedy. It opens with an alien invasion—not one of those messy, bloodthirsty ones. Our new extraterrestrial overlords, the cheerful, squishy Boov, merely want to shi...

    Don’t call these misadventures of a high-pitched sponge and his random pals living in the undersea village of Bikini Bottom “kids’ stuff.” Nickelodeon’s animated TV sensation has always been a home for surreal stoner humor, utterly inappropriate s...
