  1. What new movies are out this week: 'Atomic Blonde,' 'The Emoji Movie'

    Movies

    OPENING FRIDAY:

    ATOMIC BLONDE

    The world's baddest Academy Award winner Charlize Theron kicks Cold War butt in Atomic Blonde (R), in a role more furious (and Furiosa) than ever. It won't win Theron another Oscar but maybe an MMA title shot.

  3. Pinellas keeps movie dreams alive with indie roles, including Kevin Smith's latest film

    Tampa Bay's film industry isn't dead. It's just resting, staying limber with a few shoestring indies and ambitious life support.

  4. AARP study explores the role 50-plus moviegoers play at the box office

    Life Times

    A new study shows that seniors have a much larger impact on the success — or failure — of a film than previously realized, even films that might seem aimed at a much younger audience.

  7. Yes, 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' makes absolutely no sense

    Movies

    Spending $200 million on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is Luc Besson's sci-folly, too much for a fantasy that's gorgeous to observe yet torturous to sit through. "Too much" is Besson's signature move, so we shouldn't be surprised.

  8. Why 'Dunkirk' is one of the best war movies ever made

    Get thee to the nunnery of The Little Hours, a smutty comedy starring Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci as 14th century nuns in heat. This Sundance grad from writer-director Jeff Baena is bawdy, blasphemous and very funny when on its game, which isn't always.

    Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza) and Ginerva (Kate Micucci) swear like Philistines, 
a sign they’re already breaking their vows.
