'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.

.@rollingstone on Fantastic Four: "How bad is this reboot of Marvel's first superheroes? Worse than you can imagine"

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.

'Pixels' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — Aliens attack Earth disguised as characters from 1980s video games. Right, Pac-Man and Donkey Kong want to kill us. Our only hope lies with arcade geeks now grown up but still immature and played by Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Kevin James (he's the president).

Tangerine (Official Movie Site) — It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone, STARLET, Generation Kill) hasn't been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor.

Little Nicky (2000) — Critics Consensus: Despite the presence of a large, talented cast, the jokes in Little Nicky are dumb, tasteless, and not that funny, and Adam Sandler's character is grating to watch.

The Beach (2000)

'Amy' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — The artistic life and awful death of Amy Winehouse at age 27 has been so exhaustively chronicled that we think we know everything about her. Think again. What makes Asif Kapadia's documentary a devastating don't-miss dazzler - like the lady herself - is the way he lays out her story without editorializing.

Terminator Genisys — When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt.

'Ted 2' Movie Review — Critics blew snob snot all over Seth MacFarlane's in 2012, claiming to be above the vulgar antics of a teddy bear, voiced by director and co-writer MacFarlane, talking shit to his real-life Boston buddy John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg). Audiences made Ted one of the highest-grossing R-rated comedies ever.
