The Gripes of Wrath: Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham embark on a messy quest for morality in The Wrath of Man

Movie Review: The Wrath of Man An armored car heist forms the bloody backdrop of a predictable action movie that packs more than gunplay and mano-a-mano combat into its magazine. The Wrath of Man also fumbles with manly friendships, family bonds and female affection -- but for all the extra writing, it's Jason Statham's pitbull-like screen presence that keeps us watching.

Bruce McDonald gives Stephen McHattie a double-scoop of Dreamland

Movies: Interview with Canadian director Bruce McDonald McDonald’s latest film features a drug-addicted trumpet player and a jaundiced hitman on a collision course in the middle of Europe. “It’s about the journeyman and the artist,” says the director. He might as well have been talking about McHattie himself -- the Canadian character actor who sits at the heart of this “one-man two-hander.”

Gleason scores, Anthropoid kills, Bad Moms just bad

Home Entertainment: November 1, 2016 Justin Lin puts Star Trek franchise into hyperdrive but fails to engage mental engines but there's plenty of other stars to check out on home platforms this week By Katherine Monk Star Trek Beyond (Directed by: Justin Lin, Starring: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg) 2.5/5: I wanted to love Star Trek Beyond as much as I enjoyed the other two reboots from mastermind J.J. Abrams, and yet, despite my ample enthusiasm for a franchise that puts friendship and humanity first, this third film starring Chris Pine as James T.

I know I do, even if I’m just getting access to the costume gallery – that small square of space accessible by freight elevator and remote staircases in the bowels of the storied institution on Fifth Ave. Ever since its inception in 1946, the costume institute (now named after Vogue editor and chief fundraiser Anna Wintour) hosts the museum’s annual fundraising ball, which makes or breaks the annual operating budget on the first Monday in May. With so much riding on the Met Gala, you can feel the stress in curator Andrew Bolton’s fashionable fibers from the moment the movie opens. And it ramps up from there as we watch him prepare for the opening of ...
