Film Review

Batman (Ben Affleck) sees a flying, alien, bug-looking dude in Gotham, so he gets Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to help convince the Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Aquaman to resurrect Superman (Henry Cavill). It's worse than it sounds. more

Director Taika Waititi takes control over Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to gleefully strange effect. Jammed with far more comedy, insane visuals and Jeff Goldblum performing peak Goldbluming, this is the most entertaining film of the year so far. more

Matt Damon plays a schlub in the late 1950s who gets embroiled in a murderous plot in this dark comedy that also tries to tackle the sins of racism. If you think that sounds like a weird combination that can't quite work, you're right. more

This exploration of Alfred Hitchcock's classic, Psycho, starts with interesting revelations and goes into the toilet. Literally, they talk about Hitchcock's use of toilets... Interesting at times, but mostly forgettable. more

Lucky follows Harry Dean Stanton, in his final film role, as a 90-year-old creature of habit who realizes his own mortality through the quirky characters he meets in a sleepy desert town. It's as trite as it sounds, sadly. more

A Groundhog Day ripoff where a young woman has to solve her own death by getting murdered over and over again by a knife-wielding psycho in a baby mask. It's nowhere near as fun as that made it sound. more

30 years after the events of the original, K (Ryan Gosling) hunts down a secret that threatens to topple the human/android balance in a dystopian world that has a surprising amount of color and light. This sequel actually lives up to the classic. more

The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was a watershed moment in pop culture for gender equality. If only the movie had half the importance or energy of the real event... more
