Movie reviews from RollingStone

What we have here is junky Alien clone disguised as, well, something better. But there's no life in Life, just leftovers, and a set-up comes pretty close to being a parody of the 1979 Ridley Scott classic. We're squeezed into a claustrophobic , $200 billion international space station, which is charged with care of a probe that has returned from Mars with soil samples.

Woody Harrelson is the life of this party, based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, the indie-comics legend whose work has inspired one film landmark in 2001's Ghost World (forget Art School Confidential). Wilson is not in that movie's league by a long shot, though you couldn't imagine a better interpreter of Clowes' world than Harrelson. That mischief in the

The tale of a scary-looking dude who holds a girl hostage until she submits to him is usually the stuff of police reports. Or, of course, a Disney musical. Such is the case with Beauty and the Beast, director Bill Condon's live–action version of the 1991 classic and the first animated feature to win an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. Condon (Dreamgirls) knows how to

It's a rare beauty, this odd-duck of a period piece from the great French director François Ozon (Under the Sand, 8 Women, Swimming Pool). Frantz starts out as a remake of the 1932 film Broken Lullaby by Ernst Lubitsch, a maestro whose work only a fool would mess with. But here's Ozon doing just that, taking the second half of the film down a different path

The music scene in Austin, Texas, is alive with talent and energy – and you hope that energy would inspire Terrence Malick, who lives there, to bust out of the filmmaking funk of his recent work (Knight of Cups, To the Wonder). No such luck. Despite a few glimpses of Iggy Pop, Flea, Lykke Li and Big Freedia in live performance, Song to Song has no music in its DNA, not to

Back in 1996, Trainspotting (adapted from Irvine Welsh's 1993 cult novel) emerged as one of the great British films of the era, one that bristled with incendiary sense of style and danger. The daring dims a bit in T2: Trainspotting, though director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Steve Jobs) and doctor-turned-screenwriter John Hodge try their damnedest

It's the cannibal movie that caused people to faint at a film festival – this is what people talk about when they talk about Raw, the extraordinary body-horror parable from French director Julia Ducournau. The incident, which happened at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, might cause folks to view this as some sort of cinematic dare, a splatter shocker

Kristen Stewart might be the most adventurous young actress working today. Instead of playing variations on the Twilight role that made her a star, she keeps pushing ahead into new territory (Camp X-Ray, Still Alice, Certain Women), the riskier the better. Nothing scares her. She hit a recent career peak playing the personal assistant to a demanding Juliette

The dialogue is clunky, the A-list actors are slumming and, yeah, you've seen it all before. But Kong: Skull Island is a creature feature that's damn near irresistible. Set in 1973, just when the U.S. pulled out of Vietnam, this loony epic boasts a killer soundtrack and a thing for the surreal kick of Apocalypse Now. This return of the King is the second entry in what

Eloise (Anna Kendrick) is in a bit of a pickle. She's been invited to a wedding, see. Specifically, her best friend's nuptials – the one she helped plan for months, and was supposed to be the maid of honor at, until she recused herself when her ex-boyfriend (Wyatt Russell), a.k.a. the bride's brother, dumped her. Still, she's replying in the affirmative. But our unlucky heroine
