Star Trek Beyond Poster

Star Trek Beyond

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

The Star Wars-ification of Star Trek continues; better than the others, but still not good enough.

Ice Age: Collision Course Poster

Ice Age: Collision Course

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

It's almost as if the writers were simply using ideas left over from other Ice Age scripts that are about as fresh as the wind beneath Sid's fleas.

Lights Out Poster

Lights Out

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Lights Out has been made with a certain degree of style—enough to make you want to see what Sandberg might be capable of with a better screenplay.

Don't Think Twice Poster

Don't Think Twice

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Mike Birbiglia's beautiful, sneakily profound comedy shows a world where "Yes, and ... " is the default.

The Childhood of a Leader Poster

The Childhood of a Leader

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

That it has the courage of cryptic-ness, and leaves sympathetic viewers intrigued long after its final images have faded, is enough to mark "The Childhood of a Leader" as an uncommonly promising debut.

Summertime Poster

Summertime

Review by Glenn Kenny

This simple and admirable romance is so relaxed in its storytelling, and so committed to a certain level of realism, that it frequently feels deliberately anti-dramatic.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Poster

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Review by Nick Allen

Whether joking about the shallowness of the fashion industry or veering to an inverted riff on Some Like It Hot, you can never say this romp doesn't go for it.

Hooligan Sparrow Poster

Hooligan Sparrow

Review by Matt Fagerholm

What this film is really about, in essence, is the spirit of defiance that unites us in opposition to what has become an increasingly tyrannical world.

The Seventh Fire Poster

The Seventh Fire

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Jack Pettibone Riccobono's documentary is a powerful example of cinema's ability to grant even the diciest of characters their full humanity.

Don't Worry Baby Poster

Don't Worry Baby

Review by Nick Allen

The Tribeca version of a Maury episode, dressed up with Millennial malaise and upper class mid-life crises, as told with an overly straight face and wholesale indie presentation.

For the Plasma Poster

For the Plasma

Review by Brian Tallerico

With deadpan line readings that seem purposefully affected, this delightful oddity plays with our instinct to look for meaning in imagery, and the baggage we bring to a movie.
