Neighbors 2 Review Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

The Nice Guys Review The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys is the type of adult comedy that we don’t see that often anymore. Set in the 1970s, the film features two male leads — played respectively by Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling — who are thrust into a conspiracy when they are hired...

Money Monster Review Money Monster

Money Monster, a film that takes on both ratings-driven financial programs and corporate greed, is a populist thriller that both sides of the political aisle can appreciate. The drama, which unfolds in real time, persuasively raises questions about...

Ratchet & Clank Review Ratchet & Clank

To its credit, Ratchet & Clank isn’t the typical animated film. It tries to be better than that. “Time for a flashy montage,” onscreen  text notes before a flashy montage begins near the end of the film. This is an animated movie that is...

Keanu Review Keanu

If you aren’t already a fan of comedians Key and Peele (who rose to stardom on the Comedy Central show of the same name), the new comedy Keanu serves as a grand introduction. The film lets the duo revel in one-liners and great set-ups that...

Barbershop The Next Cut Review Barbershop: The Next Cut

Barbershop: The Next Cut is one of the most powerful comedies I’ve seen in recent years. This film — the third in the Barbershop series — doesn’t simply settle for small laughs or easy guffaws. It dares to deliver more and in taking on the...
