Movie Critic, Rolling Stone Host of ABC's Popcorn…

How to Be Single — Will someone please get busy and put Rebel Wilson in a movie worthy of her cheeky talents? How to Be Single is so not it. It's chickbait for Valentine's weekend filmgoing when dudes will presumably get their rocks off with Deadpool. Ladies, I sympathize.

'Tumbledown' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — If you're looking for romance at the movies, try Tumbledown. It's a love story between a man, a woman and a ghost. The unseen spirit is Hunter Miles, a folk singer-songwriter who produced one perfect album of 12 songs before retiring to Maine and dying.

'Deadpool' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — There's a lot of huffing and puffing in Deadpool, but the only one who can blow down your resistance to yet another screwed-up citizen of the Marvel universe is Ryan Reynolds.

Where to Invade Next — Has Michael Moore gone soft? You might think so, making a snap judgment of Where to Invade Next, a crazy-like-a-fox documentary hellbent on seeing the best in people. Other people. Not us Americans. Turns out we suck at practicing what we preach.

'Zoolander 2' Movie Review — It's been 15 years since Ben Stiller built his comic monument to narcissism in Zoolander. Based on the blazing stupidity of male models in Manhattan, the movie opened two weeks after 9/11, not a good time for dumb jokes. Sensitivities were so high that the World Trade Center had to be digitally removed from release prints.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies — Fans of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - okay, there are no fans of that 2012 cinematic fizzle - are bound to be intrigued by what writer-director Burr Steers (his Igby Goes Down still resonates with me) has done to put the bite on Jane Austen.

'Hail, Caesar!' Movie Review — The last thing a critic expects at the start of a new year - the traditional burial ground for rotting digital corpses - is a major movie from major filmmakers. But that's what you get in Hail, Caesar!, a wild whoosh of Coen brothers wizardry that left me laughing helplessly and filled with spiritual dread.

The Finest Hours

'The 5th Wave' Movie Review — Nobody forced me to see The 5th Wave. I went of my own volition. Why? I actually read and fractionally liked the 2013 novel by Rick Yancey that put some muscle into yet another dystopian tale of teenagers facing the end of the world.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi — Have no fear Hillary Clinton. Michael Bay is not guilty of using his new blast of mind-numbing noise, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, as a battle cry against your shot at the Democratic presidential nomination. He's leaving that to Bernie Sanders.
