'Nerve' Movie Review - Rolling Stone — There's a killer idea circling this tricked-up teen thriller, which is more than you can say for most summer movies. But the idea never lands because Nerve lacks the, well, nerve to follow through on its convictions.

'Equity' Review - Rolling Stone — "Dudes only" - that might as well be the motto when it comes to big-screen finance dramas such as The Wolf of Wall Street and The Big Short. In Equity, an explosive corporate thriller, a dynamite Anna Gunn fights back.

'Jason Bourne' Movie Review — Note to Hollywood: July 4th was weeks ago, so screw you for making us wait so long for the real-deal action-movie fireworks. They show up big time in Jason Bourne, that rare summer thrill ride that doesn't sell out to stupid.

'Love & Friendship' Review — by Peter Travers | July 20th, 2016 10:02:AM EST The first time I saw Whit Stillman's Love & Friendship I fell head over heels. And like anything you love at first sight, you want to see it again - not just to get closer but to put it to the test.

'Ice Age: Collision Course' Review — What's the use of getting all pissy about a kiddie cartoon? Watch Ice Age: Collison Course and see how you feel. The fifth entry in the Ice Age series is a loud, lazy, laugh-starved cash grab that cynically exploits its target audience (I use the term advisedly) by serving them scraps and calling it yummy.

'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' Review — Ever since swanned onto the BBC in 1992, there's been talk of a feature-film adventure - and now, 24 years later, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie has left Brexit-land to splash down on our shores. Moviegoers are now in the enviable position of spending decadent quality time with P.R.

'Lights Out' Movie Review — Why do we still get scared at thing that go bump in the night? At the movies, I mean. Lights Out, the feature-length (well, 80 minutes) film version of a horror short that went viral online, allows Swedish filmmaker David F. Sandberg to earn his stripes as a director in the big leagues.

'Don't Think Twice' Review: Failure Is an Option — Don't Think Twice looks at life inside an improv comedy group, which means it speaks to anyone on the periphery of success who dreams of taking the next step. It also speaks to the agony of watching one of your peers take that step and leave you behind.

'Equals' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — So here's the thing: Early Internet buzz kept calling this sci-fi parable a sterile, sexless drag in which everyone looks the same and wears the same clothes. Wrong. Actually, Equals is very sexy, mostly because there isn't much of it and yet you feel two people so longing to have it.

'The Infiltrator' Movie Review | Rolling Stone — One of the great things to come out of Breaking Bad, besides its standing as one of the best shows in TV history, is the emergence of Bryan Cranston as a screen-filling dramatic actor of the first rank.
