    The clue is in the title: The second Fifty Shades film, Fifty Shades Darker, is aiming for the shadows. It wants to be a thriller, where the erotic risk of Christian Grey’s sex dungeon is upstaged by actual danger (of the non S&M variety) for love...

    The young writer-director Damien Chazelle has followed his Oscar-winning drama Whiplash with another entirely novel film steeped in the world of music. His soaring, romantic, extremely stylish and endlessly inventive La La Land is that rare beast:...

    This belated, unwanted horror sequel is as much fun as watching blood dry. The 2002 Hollywood remake of Japanese shocker Ringu may not have been a patch on its predecessor, but at least The Ring had a solid pedigree: Pirates of the Caribbean creat...

    Who the hell is Xander Cage? A valid question, particularly if you don’t have an encyclopedic knowledge of stalled 21st-century action franchises. Back in 2002, xXx saw skate-punk Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) recruited by shady CIA officer Gibbons (Sa...

    The first movie had Keanu Reeves’s stoic man of action taking on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog—a vengeance with a vicious edge. No, they haven’t come for his cat this time, but the taciturn ex-assassin is still prone to murderous rages. ...

    Denzel Washington brings all the gestures, small and large, that animated his Tony-winning turn as August Wilson’s seething patriarch to this sincerely wrought onscreen version. It’s a Fences hemmed in by tradition. Unfortunately, the performance—...
