Jason Bourne

Review by Brian Tallerico

Jason Bourne is a film that, as a fan of the series, I kept trying to like. It just wouldn't let me.

Nerve Poster

Nerve

Review by Odie Henderson

Nerve wants to be a cautionary tale about the perils of desiring fame through social media, but it isn't willing to go to the darker depths this material requires.

Can We Take a Joke? Poster

Can We Take a Joke?

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

A documentary about the supposedly chilling effect of political correctness on comedy, neither insightful nor funny.

Bad Moms

Review by Christy Lemire

Bad Moms nails a universal sensation but balances its nuggets of truth with hilariously raunchy humor.

Into the Forest

Equity Poster

Equity

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

It too often meanders with little in the way of snap, crackle or pop to energize its interactions and confrontations, and is further dragged down by sluggish editing and the lack of surprising developments.

Tallulah Poster

Tallulah

Review by Nick Allen

In its greatest achievement, the writing and directing of Tallulah articulates the intangible sacrifice and stresses of motherhood.

Miss Sharon Jones! Poster

Miss Sharon Jones!

Review by Matt Fagerholm

The Land Poster

The Land

Review by Glenn Kenny

Caple brings his perhaps familiar narrative to an unexpected, and to my mind refreshing, conclusion. He's a filmmaker worth watching, here and in the future.

On the Silver Globe Poster

On the Silver Globe

Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens Poster

Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens

Review by Peter Sobczynski

A critical evaluation of Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens is absolutely pointless—while fans of the series may get something out of the sequel, there is nothing on display that could possibly sway naysayers.
