    The Intern is an insubstantial Nancy Meyers comedy kept afloat by Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway’s screen chemistry.

  • The Visit Review

    The Visit is a fun and kitschy horror parable – though the trademark Shyamalan twist will be a big disappoint for many viewers.

  • The Transporter Refueled Review

    Despite a lot of shortcomings and undercooked elements, The Transporter Refueled is a mildly entertaining action film.

  • We Are Your Friends Review

    We Are Your Friends is a beautifully absurd millennial angst fantasy, as shallow yet infectiously catchy as an EDM song.

  • The Boy Review

    The Boy is a very slow burn, one that successfully works to the narrative at hand, but isn’t particularly enjoyable to watch.

  • Sinister 2 Review

    There are elements of a decent horror parable here, but Sinister 2 lacks the restrained direction and eery mythos of its predecessor.

  • ‘American Ultra’ Review

    American Ultra is not quite the sum of its eclectic parts, but is strangely entertaining, nonetheless.

  • ‘Ricki and the Flash’ Review

    Ricki and the Flash is a half-baked comedy/drama, but the cast (including Meryl Streep’s aging rocker) makes it a charming one.

  • ‘Fantastic Four’ Review

    All the pieces were in place for a refreshing entry in the superhero genre, but Fantastic Four completely unravels at the halfway point.

  • ‘Vacation’ Review

    The new Vacation means well but tries too hard, and is ultimately just another pale imitation reboot.

  • ‘Southpaw’ Review

    Southpaw is a paint by numbers boxing drama kept afloat by good direction and a ferocious Jake Gyllenhaal performance.

  • ‘Pixels’ Review

    Despite a solid premise and talented supporting cast, Pixels is another shallow addition to Adam Sandler’s product line.

  • ‘Minions’ Review

    Minions delivers just enough of what people love about the eponymous Despicable Me characters to please their fanbase – but not much else.

  • ‘Self/less’ Review

    Self/less is an average science-fiction drama that pulls heavily from prior filmic explorations of immortality – and passes familiar plot beats off as fresh ideas.

  • ‘Terminator Genisys’ Review

    Terminator Genisys is a good entry point for new viewers, with worthwhile setup for future installments, but falls short in evolving core elements of the series.

  • ‘Entourage’ Review

    ‘Entourage: The Movie’ arrives in theaters offering too little, way too late, for anyone but the die-hard fans to enjoy it.

  • ‘Aloha’ Review

    Aloha has elements of Cameron Crowe’s best work, but poor storytelling results in a film that’s more perplexing than charming.

  • ‘San Andreas’ Review

    It may be big, loud, and pretty dumb, but San Andreas is a fun (albeit fleeting) piece of summer blockbuster escapism.

  • ‘Poltergeist’ Review

    Poltergeist is a forgettable diversion – one that may satisfy casual viewers looking for a mildly eerie (and sometimes humorous) ghost story.

  • ‘Tomorrowland’ Review

    ‘Tomorrowland’ is a fun adventure with big ideas and a lot of heart, but somehow winds up lacking in both.
