Kids At 20: A Relentlessly Unpleasant Day In The Life Of '90s NYC

Larry Clark and Harmony Korine’s Kids was released 20 years ago this week, but if you want to have a celebratory home screening of it, you’re going to have a harder time than you might have expected. Once as controversial a cultural property as the soon-to-be-a-Broadway-musical American Psycho was back in the day, Kids » 7/31/15 11:25am Friday 11:25am

What Could Possibly Happen In Another Jurassic World Movie?

In June 2018, Universal is scraping what is left of the amber-preserved DNA to give life to another Jurassic Park movie. Both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will resume their roles in what is technically a sequel to this summer’s Jurassic World. None of this is bad news. It’s not even exactly surprising. It’s… » 7/23/15 3:46pm 7/23/15 3:46pm

The Super-Macho Southpaw Is Trying Way Way Way Too Hard

If you know one thing about Southpaw, which tells the story of a champion boxer who loses everything and fights to get most of it back, it’s that its star, Jake Gyllenhaal, went through a crazy training regimen to prepare for the role. It comes up in every interview, and winds up being the focal point of most of them.… » 7/23/15 3:22pm 7/23/15 3:22pm

You Absolutely Have to See The New Batman V Superman Comic-Con Footage

Wonder Woman! Lex Luthor! Kryptonite! A Robin uniform hanging in the Batcave? Strange soldiers with Superman’s “S” symbol?! A WWII-looking Batman!?! This new Batman V. Superman footage comes straight from Comic-Con, and you’re just going to have to see it for yourself. » 7/11/15 3:59pm 7/11/15 3:59pm

Movies About Male Strippers, Ranked

If there’s one thing that makes me sad for heterosexual men, it’s that so many of them haven’t seen Magic Mike. They assumed they’d be in for nonstop tight close-ups of Spandex-packaged junk, exposure to unrealistically chiseled and waxed male bodies, and barely plotted sexploitation aimed at the gaze of those who are… » 7/07/15 4:45pm 7/07/15 4:45pm

You Didn't Kill Amy Winehouse, But You Didn't Save Her, Either

The cool thing about posthumous tragic-rock-star documentaries is the fresh insight from old friends and still-smitten fans and sheepish surviving accomplices, the raw intimacy of the childhood home movies and illicit backstage footage, the cheesy vintage TV appearances, the nerd arcana, and most of all the… » 7/06/15 12:41pm 7/06/15 12:41pm

Magic Mike XXL Wants To Be A Feminist Fantasy, And Almost Succeeds

I was fully prepared for the bulges, for the leather thongs that wagged and bounced with every pelvic thrust from one of Magic Mike XXL’s stripper superheroes. I was ready for the more impromptu gyrations, too, like when Mike uses his rippling arms to drill nails into a workshop table, or when the character named BDR… » 7/01/15 3:12pm 7/01/15 3:12pm

Maybe Creed Can Help Everyone Forget About Rocky Balboa

Rocky Balboa, the sixth of the Rocky movies, may have been financially successful and critically acceptable, but man, it felt really dated with a 60-year-old Sylvester Stallone shuffling around with Antonio Tarver. Creed is clearly intent on extending the franchise with a new, young boxing protagonist, and seeing how… » 7/01/15 10:44am 7/01/15 10:44am

The Tribe Is The Darkest, Greatest Silent Movie You'll See All Year

Most movies, even some of the greatest, encourage you to be passive. As intellectually stimulating or deeply moving or incredibly exciting as they might be, your role is to sit back and let it wash over you. When critics describe a film as “challenging,” it usually means a little work is required on your part—you may… » 6/16/15 5:28pm 6/16/15 5:28pm

Yes, Jurassic Park's Bad Dinosaur Science Still Matters

I was ten when Jurassic Park roared across the screen in the summer of 1993. I couldn’t wait for it. Both National Geographic and TIME ran dinosaur cover-stories leading up to the release, celebrating the new image of “hot-blooded” saurians set to make box-office records. In the week leading up to the movie, I finally… » 6/11/15 10:43pm 6/11/15 10:43pm

These Are the 10 Best Female Characters From Jurassic Park

With the release of Jurassic World just around the corner, we wanted to revisit the Steven Spielberg classic that started it all. 1993’s Jurassic Park has its share of great male characters (hello, Dr. Ian Malcolm!), but is most notable for its abundance of female roles. Below is our list of the 10 best female… » 6/09/15 8:15pm 6/09/15 8:15pm

Spy Gives Us The Melissa McCarthy Comeback We've Been Waiting For

It’s rare that my reaction to a movie is to want to hug it. But with Spy, that was the sensation that washed over me both times I’ve seen it. It’s not just that it’s really funny and consistently entertaining—it’s that, for the first time since becoming a star, Melissa McCarthy finally is in a movie that knows what to… » 6/04/15 2:57pm 6/04/15 2:57pm

The Entourage Movie Is The Hate-Watching Event Of The Summer

I’m gonna forego all ceremony and just tell you the best part of the Entourage movie, which is Ronda Rousey’s reading of the line, “I think somebody’s fuckin’ in there.” I will be purchasing this film on Blu-Ray six months hence in hopes of viewing outtakes from this scene. I need variations. “I think somebody’s » 6/03/15 11:40am 6/03/15 11:40am
