Movie reviews from RollingStone

Call me surprised with a cherry on top. Girls Trip is not what it looks like on the surface – a black-demo take on Rough Night, Scarlett Johansson's recent white–ish-girls-gone-wild romp in Miami which hit a wall of critical apathy and audience indifference. Not this time. In all the ways ScarJo & co.'s film went wrong (the dead male stripper – ugh!), Malcolm D. Lee's

Talk about a hard act to follow: Landline brings together the same sublime actress (Jenny Slate) and filmmaker (Gillian Robespierre) who put a sting in the tail of every joke in Obvious Child, their 2014 romcom about abortion. OK, their movie about a stand-up comedian negotiating the pitfalls of 21st-century romance dug deeper than that pithy description – and the duo's

Princess Diana of Themyscira, otherwise known as Wonder Woman, saves the world.

What's more, she saves not just one but three worlds in one go. One world is that which is found in this year's movie, a world embroiled in WWI and teetering on the precipice of extinction. Another is the traditionally somewhat lackluster world of DC Comics' extended universe.

Then there is the

Confession: There are times when I've been loyally in Luc Besson's corner – the visual splendor of Subway (1985), The Big Blue (1988) and La Femme Nikita (1990) established him as a master of what the French call Cinéma du Look. And 1994's The Professional – with Jean Reno teaching the assassin's game to a very young Natalie Portman – went deeper, blending style

From first frame to last, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is a monumental achievement, a World War II epic of staggering visual spectacle (see it in IMAX if you can) that hits you like a shot in the heart. Leave it to a filmmaking virtuoso at the peak of his powers to break both new ground and all the rules – who else would make a triumphant war film about a crushing Allied defeat? And

No need to brush up your Shakespeare to feel the thunderbolts coursing through Lady Macbeth. Florence Pugh, in a performance that will soon be legendary, is not playing the Scottish Queen who can't wash the blood off her hands. It's northern England where director William Oldroyd (in a sensational feature directing debut) has chosen to set his tale, adapted by playwright Alice Birch

It's no problem making a case for Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes as both an intimate, epic adventure and one of the best movies of the summer. But first let's heap praise on the landmark performance of Andy Serkis as ape-leader Caesar. The British actor created the role in 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Rupert Wyatt, and in 2014's Dawn of the

If the sight of newly-minted Oscar winner Casey Affleck scurrying around with a bedsheet over his head sounds more like a farce than deep-feeling cinema, then feel free to skip A Ghost Story. If, however, you want to see what writer-director David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Pete's Dragon) can do with nothing but unfettered imagination and an abiding faith in the

Steve Carell doubles your fun in Despicable Me 3 – he not only voices Gru, the bald-pated baddie turned goodie, but Dru, his blond, long-lost twin and a villain-in-training with an even more delightfully bizarre accent. The yellow band of fart-tooting Minions are back (their group sing of Gilbert & Sullivan is not to be missed), as is Kristen Wiig as Gru's wife Lucy Wilde, still

News Flash: Tom Holland is the best movie Spider-Man ever. He finds the kid inside the famous red onesie and brings out the kid in even the most hardened filmgoer. The last two Spidey epics had "Amazing" in the title, but let's face it – both films stirred more apathy than amazement. The only suspense came in wondering how long and hard a franchise could be milked. It may be a problem
