    Review: David Ayer's 'Sabotage' Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos & More

    With nary an Ahnold quip, "Sabotage," David Ayer's fetishistically violent action thriller, often feels like a misguided detour, a waste of goodwill amassed by the superior "End of Watch." Doing away with the concept that guided the 2012 cop drama but retaining and supercharging it's once-relatable ...

    Ranking the Top Action Stars, from McQueen to Neeson

    Grantland's Bill Simmons should get a bonus for what will likely be one of their most viral stories ("The Action Hero Championship Belt"), his ranking of the top action stars since the first prototype of the modern model, Steve McQueen. Simmons cleverly narrows his focus to define what an action sta...

    Review: 'Mistaken for Strangers' Is a Rock Doc About The National -- Or Is It?

    While Tom Berninger's "Mistaken For Strangers" is technically rooted in the travels of successful indie rock band The National, it would be inaccurate to characterize it as a rock documentary.

    Review: 'Jackass' Meets Michael Haneke With Grotesque Social Satire 'Cheap Thrills'

    The comedic thriller "Cheap Thrills" establishes a ridiculous premise early on and takes it to various extremes until you just have to accept the crazy venture on its own terms or simply give up.

    Review: Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' Starring Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly & More

    Only a few pages long and with the barest of details, the Genesis tale of Noah’s Ark is one the original peaks of brevity. A succinct story of an apocalypse and its aftermath, one can easily see why the themes of death and rebirth attracted Darren Aronofsky to a film adaptation. But “Noah” is no mer...

    Review: 'A Birder's Guide To Everything' With Kodi Smit-McPhee, James Le Gros, Katie Chang & Ben Kingsley

    In general, teenage obsessions are generally fairly obvious—music, comics, movies, clothes—but there are always a few teens whose interests, at least at the time, seem completely inexplicable, to everyone but themselves. So, it's not quite a surprise that the high school birdwatching club in "A Bird...

    Review: Meditative, Haunting And Very Beautiful 'Hide Your Smiling Faces'

    In a strangely beautiful and unnerving moment, "Hide Your Smiling Faces" opens up with an arresting visual: a close-up of a snake -- its mouth wrapped around a fish, slowly struggling to swallow it whole. It's disturbing, fascinating and the shot lingers with a sense of awe, curiosity and wonder. An...
