'Pan' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — We've been choking on Peter Pans lately - Allison Williams crowing in tights on TV, Finding Neverland on Broadway, the high school production you rightfully dread seeing. The nadir, till now, was Steven Spielberg's 1991 Hook, with Robin Williams as the grown-up Peter longing for his golden youth and a chance to defeat Dustin Hoffman's dastardly Capt.

'Steve Jobs' Movie Review — If you're going to interpret on film the searching mind of an indisputable genius, it helps not to make too many dumbass moves. On that basis, score a triumph for Steve Jobs, written, directed and acted to perfection, and so fresh and startling in conception and execution that it leaves you awed.

'The Martian' Movie Review — You won't find a space epic that's more fun to geek out at than The Martian. Director Ridley Scott rediscovers the light touch he's been missing in recent misfires such as Prometheus, The Counselor and Exodus: Gods and Kings.

100 Years, 100 Maverick Movies — he way I see it, and I've got the conch, the best movies of the last 100 years were made by mavericks who busted rules to follow their obsessions. We're talking about a century of cinema, but it's still rock & roll to me.

'Black Mass' Movie Review — Ice-cold. Dead eyes. Demonic laugh. His face a mask you can't read until he's up in yours. Then run. That's Johnny Depp giving everything he's got in a riveting, rattlesnake performance as South Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger in Black Mass. The FBI finally grabbed this Osama bin Laden of gangsters in 2011.

Time Out of Mind — Everyone involved in this small miracle of cinema is on the high wire. Richard Gere, deprived of his movie-star looks, plays a homeless man adrift in New York. Oren Moverman, the gifted Israeli-American writer-director of The Messenger and deprives himself of the tearjerking backstory that keeps butts in seats.

Fall Movie Preview 2015: Biopics, Bond and 'The Force Awakens' — Fall is the time of the year when studios release the movies they're not ashamed of and that won't suck the soul right out of you. That's right, they save the best for last in the hope of winning audience applause and maybe Academy gold.

'Fantastic Four' Movie Review — The latest reboot of the Fantastic Four - the cinematic equivalent of malware - is worse than worthless. It not only scrapes the bottom of the Marvel-movie barrel; it knocks out the floor and sucks audiences into a black hole of soul-crushing, coma-inducing dullness. And, guess what, it's an origin story.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise hit on a tangy idea when he decided to turn the old-school CBS series Mission: Impossible (1966-1973) into a film franchise. As producer as well as star, Cruise puts a new director in charge of every movie. So far at the helm, since 1996, we've had Brian De Palma, John Woo, J.J.

'Paper Towns' Movie Review — If you blubbered through John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and the emo-blockbuster squeezed from its bestselling YA pages, you probably won't cry all that much at the movie constructed from Green's Paper Towns. Wait, that's a good thing.

Rob Lowe’s 'Grinder' is the funniest show of the season by a mile. As a TV lawyer who thinks he's the real thing, RL's a delusional delight.
