'The Family Fang' Movie Review | Rolling Stone

rollingstone.com — What if you had parents who referred to you and your sibling as Child A and Child B? And what if said parents forced you to participate in performance art pieces, such as staging a bank robbery complete with guns, fake blood and bystanders who think it's all for real?

‘Mother’s Day’ Movie Review

rollingstone.com — Director Garry Marshall is a menace. He keeps killing holidays with all-star comedies in which a laugh would die of loneliness. First, Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve got the Marshall treatment. Now Mother's Day takes the hit from Marhall's marauders, out to trick a bunch of poor, movie-loving moms to take a chance on this turkey on their special day.

'Keanu' Movie Review | Rolling Stone

rollingstone.com — I've heard complaints that Keanu - the feature film debut from Comedy Central's merry pranksters Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, just off a five-season run - is uneven, overlong and really just a cat video disguised as a movie. Yeah, maybe. But I laughed my ass off.

Papa Hemingway in Cuba

rollingstone.com — It is, as advertised, the first film shot in Cuba since Castro came to power in 1959. ( Our Man in Havana, with Alec Guinness, was the last, though the new U.S. open-door policy will likely bring more cinematic exploration).

A Hologram for the King

rollingstone.com — And you may find yourself in another part of the world. And you may find yourself at a high-tech sales meeting. And you may find yourself looking at Tom Hanks. And you may ask yourself - well, how did I get here?

'Red Riding Hood' is Dull in the Extreme; 'Jane Eyre' Will Surprise You

rollingstone.com — Peter Travers has no love for Red Riding Hood , a stylish update of the classic fable made by Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the first movie. Though the movie features the gorgeous Amanda Seyfried in a love triangle with two hunky guys, one of whom may be a werewolf, it's an incredibly stupid Twilight retread and dull in the extreme, so Travers is tossing it in his Scum Bucket.

'The Meddler' Movie Review

rollingstone.com — Susan Sarandon is a star shining on her highest beams. Only a fool would want to miss those fireworks. So check out The Meddler, in which Sarandon dives into her juiciest role in years as Marnie Minervini, a New Jersey widow who travels to Los Angeles to be near her screenwriter daughter Lori (the ever-amazing Rose Byrne).

'Nina' Movie Review | Rolling Stone

rollingstone.com — The word on this Nina Simone biopic has been so toxic for so long - it was filmed in 2012 but only released now - I was really hoping to find something good in it. No luck. It's not that Simone, a legendary musician and civil-rights activist diagnosed with bipolar disorder, doesn't deserve a movie of her own.

'Elvis & Nixon' Movie Review

rollingstone.com — On December 21st, 1970, Elvis Presley, the King, met with Richard Nixon, the Leader of the Free World, in the Oval Office for about 40 minutes. The photo of the two icons shaking hands is the most requested in the National Archives. What was discussed? This was before Nixon started taping all his conversations.

The Huntsman: Winter's War

rollingstone.com — Pity poor studly Chris Hemsworth. The Huntsman: Winter's War, the paltry prequel in which he again lends his mighty Thor abs to the title role, reduces him to eye candy. OK, he wasn't much more in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman.
