Three

Critics often talk about ballet when discussing the films of action filmmaker Johnnie To. It's an interesting comparison given how precisely choreographed To's chase scenes and gunfights often are. But "Three," To's hybrid cop/medical thriller, proves that the ingenious Hong Kong director's action scenes are uniquely cinematic. Show More Summary

Right Now, Wrong Then

Somehow, until now, I have never experienced a film by South Korea’s Hong Sang-soo, who made his debut as a director back in 1996. From what I gather, though, his low-budget efforts tend to contain similar elements: A self-impressed film director, a movie critic, an attractive girl, awkward social interactions and drinking binges.

The Phenom

Baseball player character study “The Phenom” very rarely takes place on the field, but within the tormented silence of a young athlete who has been dehumanized by his father into a pitching machine. In contrast, its big events are therapy sessions that Hopper Gibson (Johnny Simmons) has with Dr. Show More Summary

Independence Day: Resurgence

A massive endeavor that's Michael Bay-esque in its bloated generic-ness, populated by stiff cardboard cutouts who race through bland digital chaos.

Real-time Reactions To Waking Up In A Britain That Voted To Leave The EU

Free State of Jones

I'm convinced I endured the full four years of the American Civil War in the two hours and 19 minutes it took to watch the interminable Free State of Jones.

Hunt For The Wilderpeople

It's off-beat in all the best ways, has fantastic actors all delivering fantastic performances, and is a uproarious adventure with endless heart.
