Aint-them-bodies-saints Missed It By That Much

Gather ‘round the campfire, children, your Uncle Ryan has a story of terror to tell.

Way back in “aught 6,” Omaha didn’t have a way to watch some of the best movies in the world. It’s true! Why, before ole Film Streams came along, we were at the mercy of pirates and thieves to see some of the most acclaimed films! This is before your fancy Netflixes and new-fangled Amazon Primes and “The Hulu.” “On Demand” was...

Tom-cruise-mission-impossible-rogue-nation ILY IMF

At some point, Mission Impossible and the 007 series “freaky Fridayed.” Bond moved from implausible ridiculousness to slightly-more-grounded cloak-and-daggerism, whereas Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is now climbing into airplanes by holding on to a door handle while it takes off. There’s room for both types of espionage spectacles, and Mission Impossible has found its place by embracing the fact that, whether or not he’s...

Southpaw is a boxing movie with, dare I say, far too much boxing in it. I realize that sounds strange, but director Antoine Fuqua’s new movie isn’t very interested in its extended training montages or improbable fight scenes—and that’s not entirely a dig.

The Martian

An ode to ingenuity and duct tape.


Pawn Sacrifice

A profile of a mentally ill genius chess player who briefly fought the Cold War alone.


Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

After a somewhat quiet first film, this second adaptation of the postapocalyptic young adult novels goes bonkers.


Reader Recommends

The Look of Silence

A companion piece to The Act of Killing, this makes a one-two punch as good as any documentary in history.


The Visit

A middling found footage horror-comedy that counts as a triumph for this director.


The Stanford Prison Experiment

A recreation of the actual experiment that chills but has little new to say.


Reader Recommends

On DVD: Mad Max: Fury Road

It's basically "Smash the Patriarchy: The Movie" with really awesome cars.


No Escape

Don't go to Malaysia. You'll probably die.
