Love & Friendship
Love & Friendship   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
Whit Stillman's "Love & Friendship" is compact, modestly budgeted, sublimely acted and almost completely terrific. It'll likely disorient the average Jane Austen fanatic, which is nice, too. more
X-Men: Apocalypse
X-Men: Apocalypse   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
The stakes in the boringly apocalyptic "X-Men: Apocalypse" (opening May 26) couldn't be higher. Its long-entombed, ready-to-party mutant god, played by Oscar Isaac is both invincible and immortal, and he wants to control every single mind in every single human on Earth. The world's nukes are unleashed willy-nilly, though that part works out fine. It's a "just kidding!" moment of imminent global destruction. more

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
Two years ago, "Neighbors" writers Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, along with director Nicholas Stoller, reinvented the classic college party movie by pitting the frat guys against the young parents next door. It was a raunchy but sweet rumination on getting older and growing out of party mode, a refreshing take on the college movie formula. With "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," they've flipped the script, creating a feminist party classic that's completely current and doesn't skimp on any of the wild humor. It's also even better than its predecessor. more
The Angry Birds Movie
The Angry Birds Movie   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Katie Walsh
If you've ever played the mobile video game Angry Birds, you might have found yourself wondering -- why am I sling-shotting cartoon birds at grinning green pigs? Why are these birds so angry? What have the pigs done to deserve this destruction? "Angry Birds," the movie, is here to fill in that backstory, to answer the questions that may or may not have been asked, and provide motivation for the avian rage. The film, directed by Clay Kittis and Fergal Reilly, from a screenplay by "Simpsons" writer Jon Vitti, proves to be more than just a gimmick, and doesn't skimp on any of the quirky wackiness that you might expect from a film about blob-shaped, flightless birds battling pigs. more
The Meddler
The Meddler   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
The smooth, cozy charm of writer-director Lorene Scafaria's "The Meddler" offers considerable seriocomic satisfaction in its story of a mother and a daughter, the meddler and the meddled with, respectively. I don't get the high-end praise for this medium entity. But as a performance vehicle it's nice and spacious. more
The Nice Guys
The Nice Guys   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
At one point in "The Nice Guys," the disheveled, half-drunk private eye played by Ryan Gosling falls off a Hollywood Hills balcony, rolls down the hill and comes to rest inches away from one of the film's many corpses. Gosling's reaction? Bust out the best Lou Costello (of Abbott and Costello, for you ahistorical comedy rookies) available under the circumstances, complete with non-verbal gasping, tears and a comic inability to form actual words. more
Weiner
Weiner   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
In 2011, seven-term Democratic Congressman Anthony D. Weiner's underwear selfies, emblems of a sex farce not intended for wide release, accidentally went viral. There went a bright political future. And then a reprieve: Improbably, once the Weiner scandal became yesterday's whoopsie-daisy, the man got his second act, an initially promising run at the New York City mayoral race. more
High-Rise
High-Rise   ( of 4)

Chicago Tribune: Michael Phillips
Already streaming on Amazon, "High-Rise" is the latest so-called unfilmable book that has, yes, been filmed. Directed by Ben Wheatley, it comes from the J.G. Ballard allegory, in which Ballard compressed an entire, fading British Empire's worth of spiritual depletion and class warfare into what he described in his 1975 novel as "a gigantic vertical zoo," with "hundreds of cages stacked above each other." more
