Movie reviews from RollingStone

Attention all you Super Trooperheads, you Trooperphiles, you maple-syrup–guzzling guys with your #MeowToo hashtags at the ready – your prayers, for better or worse, have finally been answered and crowd-funded. Chances are you either squealed with delight upon the news of a second Super Troopers flick, before strapping on your bulletproof cup and threatening to

Hanging with Amy Schumer – a genuine comedy rock star – is always fun, especially when she's the lead writer on the movies and TV shows she appears in (hello, Trainwreck and Inside Amy Schumer). I Feel Pretty is not written by Schumer, though she reportedly had input – and the disconnect shows. The script is the handiwork of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (How to Be

Jean-Luc Godard is one of the founders of the French New Wave – and, at 87, he's still kicking at the limits lesser intellects erect around cinema. (His new film, a video essay called Le Livre d'Image, will compete at Cannes in May). Now Michel Hazanavicius, director of 2011's Oscar-winning salute to the silent film era The Artist, has rustled up the nerve to put

A man in a uniform is standing on the beach, staring at the sea. Natives trudge along the shore behind him. His profile makes him look like a statue, the sort of noble "Hail the conquering hero!" sculpture you'd see in national galleries. His name is Don Diego de Zama (Daniel Giménez Cacho). The place is the edge of Argentina. The century is the 18th. He's been sent to claim and tame this land

Here's a movie that's in no rush to work a path into your head and heart. It's the intent of Chinese-American filmmaker Chloé Zhao to carve a story out of the real lives of the people she puts on screen; her docu-fiction technique was what distinguished her striking 2015 feature debut Songs My Brothers Taught Me, set among the Lakota Sioux in South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian

Anyone who's ever psyched themselves out prepping for a game, any game – life included – should take a look at Borg vs. McEnroe. There's a lesson to be learned in watching two tennis titans go at it in a movie dished out for maximum entertainment and a sneaky sense of unease. It's Wimbledon, 1980, and Swedish champion Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is going for a record-breaking fifth

There's a scene in Rampage, the latest movie adaptation of an old-ass – sorry, "vintage" – video game, in which an albino silverback gorilla named George flips the bird at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. How did this great ape know exactly what we were thinking? Look, we're willing to cut Johnson a lot of slack: His recent Jumanji reboot was genuine fun, and the man kills it

Espionage thrillers have it rough these days, what with contemporary headlines beating anything Hollywood can cook up. Still, Beirut has an undeniable retro appeal: It's 1982 in Lebanon, the eve of Israel's invasion. A hostage situation is pulling Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm), a former U.S. diplomat in Beirut, back into a spycraft shitstorm he'd practically kill to avoid. He's been

Do you remember the first time Michelle Pfeiffer showed up on your radar? Was it courtesy of one of her gangster molls, available in both coke-snorting (Scarface) and gum-snapping (Married to the Mob) varieties? Or was it via her costume dramas, playing passive heartbreakers (The Age of Innocence) and the aggressively heartbroken (Dangerous Liaisons)? Taking zero

It's a movie about a boy, a horse and the setbacks that befall them – so you can be forgiven for walking into Lean On Pete and immediately thinking you've just landed right smack dab in the middle of Tearjerker Central. Don't worry: British writer-director Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years) avoids sentiment – if anything, he’s allergic to it. Sobs are earned the hard way in this
