Fantastic Four

The latest attempt to turn the First Family of Superheros into a decent movie franchise falls flat. They don't even get the Thing's brow-ridge right!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Jupiter Ascending

The good news: Channing Tatum runs around shirtless for 10 – 15 minutes. The bad news: The rest of the Wachowski siblings' space opera is mostly confusing and kind of dull.

Ricki and the Flash

Meryl Streep plays the least convincing rockin' mom ever in this comedy-drama by director Jonathan Demme written by Diablo Cody. The film is sporadically entertaining until the climax, which is such utter horseshit that it ruins the whole movie retroactively.
