Review: Director Sean Baker's "The Florida Project"
Not too far from the gates of the Walt Disney World Resort, where families are promised "enchanted escapes" and "fun" and "magic" and where day tickets start at a cool $99 a person, is a discount motel off a busy street called The Magic Castle. It's painted in garish shades of lavender and amethyst...

Review: Director Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049"
"We're all just looking out for something real," says Robin Wright's police captain in "Blade Runner 2049." Wright, an icy, steely actress seemingly born for the world of "Blade Runner," is speaking to her replicant detective whose name is his serial number: KDC-3-7 — or "K," for short (Ryan...

Lee Daniels Reflects On "Empire," "Star," Combined Series Storylines
Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels says he's consumed by fear each time he films a new scene. Even after Daniels found meteoric success through films such as "Monster's Ball," ''Precious" and "The Butler," along with his popular TV series "Empire," he still worries that his work won't live up to...

Review: Director Stephen Frears' "Victoria & Abdul"
Stop us if this sounds familiar: A tall, dark, bearded servant of rough breeding comes from far away to suddenly charm a grumpy, widowed Queen Victoria and thus upend Britain's royal court at the turn of the 20th century. You were perhaps thinking of the film "Mrs. Brown," starring Judi Dench as...

Review: Director David Gordon Green's "Stronger"
"Stronger " is about a survivor but it is not a feel-good movie. In 2013, 27-year-old Jeff Bauman went to watch his ex-girlfriend, Erin Hurley, run the Boston Marathon. He was there when the bombs went off and lost both of his legs as a result. An Associated Press photograph of Bauman, bloodied and...

Review: Director Matthew Vaughn's "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" 
In the first film about a secret spy group known as Kingsman, we learned they are well-dressed, courtly and perfectly groomed. But by the second film, there's a decidedly ungentlemanly whiff about them — of desperation. "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" comes three years after the first leg in the...

Review: Cambodia Drama From Director Angelina Jolie
By now, there should be no debating that Angelina Jolie is a talented director, capable of handling the most challenging subject matter with assurance and sensitivity. Those who continue to denigrate her skills because she's also a movie star and tabloid fixture are running out of ammunition. There...

Review: Director Darren Aronofsky's Audacious "mother!"
Women give, men take and the Old Testament crashes into modern anxiety in director Darren Aronofsky's "mother! " It is an audacious, bold and fascinating fever dream of a film. It's allegory for, well, everything (the environment, marriage, art, spirituality, you name it!), that will challenge,...

Review: New Action Hero Unveiled in "American Assassin"
Mitch Rapp is an action hero in the vein of Jack Ryan or John McClane: an impossibly tough and determined everyday guy out to save the world. Dylan O'Brien brings a youthful freshness to that archetype in "American Assassin," his first leading-man role and the first big-screen adaptation of Vince...
