Film review: 'Incredibles 2'

Film review: 'Incredibles 2'

The highly anticipated sequel to the adored 2004 film had a lot to live up to. With plenty of humor, excitement, and heart, it's still an exhilarating ride.

Review: 'The Seagull'

A tale of unrequited love and unfulfilled aspirations, Anton Chekhov's bitterly tragic comedy gets an enjoyable -- if mostly unremarkable -- adaptation, boosted by strong performances from its spectacular cast.

Film review: 'On Chesil Beach'

The melancholic film follows newlyweds Florence and Edward during their disastrous first night together as man and wife, at a seaside hotel in Southern England in 1962.

Film review: 'Ocean's 8'

The gender-swapped spin-off of the trilogy of "Ocean's" films hits all the satisfying elements of a heist movie, while offering the distinct pleasure of watching its insanely talented cast have a blast and look great doing it.

Film review: 'Beast'

This psychological thriller sees Moll, a timid twenty-something, rebelling from her family by romancing danger. But "Beast" isn't just a simple whodunit, moving beyond its premise as Peace peels back the layers of Moll's own impulse toward destruction.

Film review: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Providing the origin story of roguish smuggler Han Solo, the film feels like the result of its writers being handed a checklist of events they had to include, and their job was simply to create a narrative that could connect them. The results are messy and uneven.

Film review: 'Deadpool 2'

You know the sequel doesn't measure up to the original hit film when even the fourth wall-breaking protagonist calls out the lazy writing.

Film review: 'Let the Sunshine In'

Like swiping left through a subtitled version of Tinder for 90 minutes.

Film review: 'Life of the Party'

The formulaic film aspires to be both a raucous college comedy and a sweet story about a middle-aged woman learning to get her groove back. Neither thread is entirely satisfying, but what works does so because of Melissa McCarthy's immensely likable presence.

Film review: 'Racer and the Jailbird'

Michaël R. Roskam's film tries to blend a flashy crime-thriller with somber romantic drama as it tracks the relationship between an affluent race car driver and a career criminal with a heart of gold named. But it fails.

Film review: 'Tully'

Charlize Theron plays Marlo, an overwhelmed 40-something wife and mother of two children, with a third on the way. Fearing for his sister's well-being, Marlo's brother hires night nanny Tully -- a millennial Mary Poppins.
