Kingsman-image Save the World, Do Butt Stuff

Oh, what a beautiful fable Kingsman: The Secret Service weaves! Its moral is clear: If you save the world from a megalomaniac hellbent on eradicating the bulk of humanity, you get to have anal sex with a Swedish princess!

This useless bit of machismo trash is the only thing that captures the latent fratboy misogyny that populates much of the work of comic book author Mark Millar, whose series was the source...


Oopsie Genius

I know two things for sure: (1) Birdman aims to relentlessly drive home one singular point, one thoroughly expressed thesis about life and art. (2) It does not succeed.

It is one of the sillier movie debates a person can have, ranking only behind “Best Adam Sandler Movie” and “Worst Moment in the Star Wars Prequels.” Every year is a good year for film, if you know which ones to seek and avoid. Lemme help with that.

Two Days, One Night

This harrowing, heartbreaking tale is a parable for how the poor live now.

Mr. Turner

A spectacularly crafted piece that transcends its boring genre.

GRADE

Kingsman: The Secret Service

A gleefully cheeky action-comedy that nearly perfectly sends up 007.

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension.

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.

This Israeli comedy about military service is a mixed bag.
