Review: Antoine Fuqua Directs Denzel Washington In "The Equalizer 2"
You won't usually find Denzel Washington in a movie sequel. He just doesn't do them. Something about not wanting to repeat himself. So there must be something special indeed for him to break his own rule for "The Equalizer 2." Fans of the first film will instantly know why Washington is drawn to...

Review: Director Carlos Lopez Estrada Debuts With "Blindspotting"
"Blindspotting," the directorial debut of Carlos Lopez Estrada, stalks the streets of Oakland with a heightened, spoken-word flow, passionately freestyling on race, police brutality and gentrification through a searing story about two friends: one black, one white. Though stylistically scattershot...

Review: Rawson Marshall Thurber Directs The Rock In "Skyscraper"
I like to imagine what King Kong, as a popcorn-chomping moviegoer, might make of "Skyscraper," the latest summer actioner staring Dwayne Johnson. Would he, watching a goliath ascend the exterior of a high-rise with helicopters and klieg lights swirling, woundedly mumble, "Hey, that's my gig." But...

Review: Gus Van Sant's "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot"
Macabre is a word often associated with the late cartoonist John Callahan. He's the man who in his widely published cartoons, drawn in his signature squiggly style, poked fun at lesbians, Chinese people, the handicapped, women, Oprah, Alzheimer's patients, chiropractors and even sexual harassment...

Review: Director Peyton Reed's "Ant-Man and The Wasp"
Not since Animal against the advice of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker ingested Insta-Growth pills has a movie had as much fun with scale as "Ant-Man and The Wasp." Among the greatest threats to the shape-shifting heroes of the Marvel sequel are windshield wipers, salt shakers and seagulls. This is...

Review: Director Boots Riley's "Sorry to Bother You"
Writer and director Boots Riley's crackling first film "Sorry to Bother You " may just be the craziest movie of the year. Fierce, provocative and bold, it's a challenging social statement about race and capitalism wrapped in a colorful, magical realist coating that will leave your head spinning. It...

Review: Director Charles Stone III's "Uncle Drew"
For a few shining minutes, "Uncle Drew" is the movie it surely intended to be: funny and clever, quick and snappy, and most of all, fun — all infused with love for the great sport of basketball. Unfortunately, those minutes come during the closing credits, a sequence entertaining enough to be its...

Review: Director Stefano Sollima's "Sicario: Day of the Soldado"
There's an oppressive bleakness to the brutal action-thriller "Sicario: Day of the Soldado." But with faces like Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro, what are you going to do? Amid the dust cloud of violence that settles over the "Sicario" sequel, nothing stands out like the furrowed brow of Brolin's...

Review: Director Eugene Jarecki's Elvis Documentary "The King"
It's usually a bad sign when critics start questioning your film before it's even finished. But director Eugene Jarecki had to endure worse. While making the documentary "The King," he actually got gruff from a member of his own film crew. After a car breaks down, Jarecki takes the opportunity to...

Review: Director Brad Bird's "Incredibles 2"
"The Incredibles" writer/director Brad Bird has said that his characters' powers are all born of stereotypes. Dad is strong, mom is stretched in a million directions, teenage girls put up shields, little boys are full of boundless energy and babies are unpredictable. It's why he decided that for...
