Baby Driver

Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11

Baby Driver isn’t all testosterone-fueled explosions and physics-defying stunts. It’s a gritty, guns-and-bullets character study done with panache, skill and a slice of humor.

Annie

It’s a hard-knock life for a former orphan and a guy who used to be Daddy Warbucks in this not-so-expertly updated musical

Tone-deaf update of Annie can’t find its rhythm.

Django Unchained

Italian Western meets blaxploitation revenge in Tarantino’s latest B-movie blow-up

Quentin Tarantino may be America’s greatest pulp film historian. He’s certainly the greatest one actually making movies—as opposed to simply writing guidebooks on obscure cinema. His films are crammed with so many in-jokes, homages and references to previous cult films it would take an NYU grad student a week just to alphabetize them.
