Zippy Pippy

While the new Star Trek Beyond lacks a little bit in soul and story cohesiveness, it scores high on the zip factor, and introduces a creepy new villain.

Dead on Arrival

Our movie reviewer was bored by the leading ladies in the new Ghostbusters, but was kind of into the 3D ghosts.

Creature Feature

The Secret Life of Pets is good for a laugh or two, and the occasional wacked-out moment that qualifies it as a semi-original animated movie.

Devilish Delights

After watching The Neon Demon, one might get the sense that director and co-writer Nicolas Winding Refn might sorta/kinda have a reasonable amount of contempt for Hollywood fashion models. Just call it a hunch.

Alien Farts

While the original Independence Day was a stupid blast, the sequel is the equivalent of a nasty two-hour alien fart.

Johnson & Hart

While it doesn't boast much along the lines of originality, Central Intelligence winds up being an above average action/comedy buddy movie thanks to its stars, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. The guys belong together.

The Fright Stuff

Wan has tapped into something interesting with this franchise. Two films in, it's showing some decent durability and originality. It's also pretty scary.

Pop Hit

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping gives the Lonely Island a chance to play in their favorite sandbox: the music world. The results are what feel like the first fully realized Lonely Island movie. Given how damn funny the movie is, let's hope there are many more to follow.

Chicken Love?

Some movies are so weird, the vibe they put out can't really be conveyed by the written word. Men & Chicken is weird. It's seriously, freaking weird. Let's see if its weirdness can be sufficiently conveyed in this here column.

Nice Try

Gosling and Crowe are great together, and they should consider pairing up again for future films. They are so good you will forgive the film's inconsistencies and convoluted plot.

Valiantly Predictable

Director Jodie Foster goes for a 1970s throwback movie vibe while approaching a modern financial subject in Money Monster, a valiant but messy effort starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

Cinema Heroes

You must stay through the damn credits until that blue ratings thing shows at the end. It's a Marvel movie!

Old Cat, New Tricks

After a few years on their TV show, the comedic duo Key and Peele come to the big screen with Keanu, a lively kidnapped cat comedy with a high body count.

Summer Movie Guide

Every year, the summer movie season gets off to an earlier start. At the current rate, next year's Summer Movie Season will kickoff somewhere around January of 1982.

Unhappily Ever After

What producers didn't realize soon enough was that Hemsworth basically SUCKS when he's doing anything other than playing Thor.

Back to Tradition

Based on the graphic novel by Jacques Tardi and directed by Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci, the film features an alternate universe where the world is reliant on steam and terrorized by lizard-robot people. Yeah, like I said, it's weird.<
