What if I told you a movie was about four bikers who destroy a pawnshop, cause significant damage to a bar and are chased out of it by angry drinkers? Then I told you the same four bikers break into a private residence and a barn, steal two cars, crash a high school party where everyone is drinking and having sex and commit other serious crimes.
Netflix's most successful original series returned a few weeks ago for Season 2 with its dazzling array of rich characters and sardonic, femme-skewing wit.
The documentary "Ivory Tower" examines the state of higher education in the United States. And while its entry into limited release this weekend has thus far been quiet, it could end up making a lot of noise.
The most important thing to know about "The Rover" is it's an earnest, fearless attempt to explore the human soul and motion pictures as an art form.
In many ways, "22 Jump Street" is a typical comedy of the mid-teens.
"Edge of Tomorrow" is probably the most entertaining mess we'll see all year. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun watching a movie that makes so little sense.
Each year, critics and fanboys eventually start arguing over which summer blockbuster is the best of the season. It's probably too early to start that conversation, but it's unlikely any other major summer release will equal "X-Men: Days of Future Past" for screenwriting craft, characterization or complexity.

Director Nick Cassavetes' female-bonding, cheating-husband-punishing comedy "The Other Woman" sets a new bar for erratic storytelling.
The British drama "The Railway Man" is based on the memoir of the same title by Eric Lomax, and the best thing I can say for the movie is it makes me want to read the book.
It was inevitable that Blue Sky/20th Century Fox would make a sequel to "Rio," a modest hit in 2011 that earned almost $500 million worldwide. That's what studios do: milk each intellectual property for as much box-office revenue as possible.

To what do we owe the second coming of the biblical epic?
Writer-director Chris Rock is not Andre Allen, the stand-up comedian turned movie star lead of "Top Five." But, it's almost impossible to watch his latest effort, a cutting comedy about showbiz, creativity and ambition, and not wonder what material Rock took from his own life.
