Save it

You can catch the latest blockbuster at the only movie theatre on the Strip, but don't expect lots of locals, any great luxury or cutting-edge cinema technology at this ageing cineplex just north of the MGM Grand. Parking in the Showcase garage is free with validation; if, that is, you can get past the parking lot that is Las Vegas Boulevard.

      The all-female reboot of Ghostbusters is here—jacked up, subversive and often very funny—and before any fanboys make the leap from vicious trailer criticism to the movie itself, let’s get real about the 1984 original: It’s breezy, it’s blessed wit...

      Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass prompted widespread surprise with their decision to return to the Bourne series, despite the neat closure of their trilogy capper, 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. Surely, we assumed, they must have a great reas...

      Although Bad Moms was written and directed by the creators of the uneven Hangover trilogy (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore), any hopes that it will play out as an estrogen-charged, drugs-and-booze-fueled farce are quickly squashed. Instead of all-nighte...
