Review: Director Kay Cannon's "Blockers"
The teen sex comedy, a dude-fest if there ever was one, gets a very overdue and very funny update in Kay Cannon's "Blockers," a gleeful, gross-out farce about the absurdities of gender bias. Like "Porky's" and "American Pie" before it, Cannon's film begins with a sex pact. Three high-school friends...

Review: Director John Curran's "Chappaquiddick"
Ambiguous and damning at once, John Curran's "Chappaquiddick" plunges us back into the summer of 1969: the season of Woodstock, the moon landing, the Manson murders and the lowest ebb of the Kennedy mythology. It was six years since the assassination of John F. Kennedy and a year since Bobby was...

Review: Director John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place"
Let's start with a popcorn warning. If you're bringing your usual tub of multiplex popcorn into "A Quiet Place," just be aware that you'll be hearing every single crunch. That's because much of John Krasinski's ingeniously creepy new film, in which he stars alongside his real-life better half,...

Review: Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One"
"Why can't we go backward for once?" wonders the protagonist of "Ready Player One" shortly before gunning his "Back to the Future" DeLorean in reverse. "Really put the pedal to the metal." Pressing rewind is, if anything, an understandable desire these days. But in today's reboot, remake-mad movies...

Review: Steven Soderbergh's iPhone-Lensed "Unsane" 
Steven Soderbergh, who briefly retired from Hollywood after lamenting its timid small-mindedness, has shot his second post- hiatus film entirely on an iPhone. "Unsane," a pulpy psychological thriller, is an exercise in both genre and technology. It's a B-movie iMovie. And it's 98 minutes of proof...

Review: Director Steven S. DeKnight's  "Pacific Rim Uprising"
At the end of the monsters-versus-robots flick "Pacific Rim," a breach at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean is closed, plugging a hole that allowed hellish creatures to emerge and terrorize the globe. But after the movie earned $400 million worldwide, was that portal really going to stay closed? No,...

Review: Wes Anderson's "Isle of Dogs"
There is an out-of-body melancholy that sets in about three quarters of the way through Wes Anderson's ninth feature "Isle of Dogs ." Yes, you will be inexplicably wrapped up in the drama of a gang of sickly stop-motion animated dogs who have been exiled to a trash island and are determined to get...
