Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart star in Woody Allen’s Cafe Society.Lionsgate

Movie Planner: Woody Allen's blah 'Cafe Society,' 'Jason Bourne,' 'Bad Moms,' 'Nerve'

INDIE FLICKS: CAFE SOCIETY Woody Allen has directed a movie each year since 1982, a remarkable streak that, like Joe DiMaggio's, may never be equalled in modern times.

  1. Review: Raunchy and relatable 'Bad Moms' embraces imperfect parents (w/video)

  3. Review: Tense and clear-cut, 'Jason Bourne' is best of the series

    Movies

    Jason Bourne begins with a montage of the CIA assassin's greatest, grisliest hits, in case you're suffering from franchise amnesia. Details can be sketchy, nearly a decade after everything about this conflicted killing machine appeared settled, at least as far as Matt Damon was concerned.

    Damon’s grim demeanor as Bourne doesn’t hide the actor’s pleasure in returning to the role a decade later.

  6. Review: 'Captain Fantastic' is one of the summer's nicest movie surprises

    Movies

    Ben's five children are savages. That's the way he wants them. Brutal and cunning enough to stalk, kill and dress a deer. Able to climb sheer rock walls, know the deadliest spots to stab an opponent, stitch themselves if needed. Ben wants them ready for whatever is out there.

    Samantha Isler, Shree Crooks, Viggo Mortensen, Charlie Shotwell, Annalise Basso and George MacKay.

    FILMME GUILD: TODD HAYNES' SAFE

    These are defiant times for women in movies, from Jennifer Aniston's scathing open letter to prying paparazzi to shushing Ghostbusters bias; from protesting the industry's salary gap between men and women to demanding better roles.

    Julianne Moore stars in Todd Haynes’ psychological feminist drama Safe.

  15. Review: 'Ghostbusters' is back and it's not bad — get used to it (w/video)

    Movies

    Relax, trolls. Your precious Ghostbusters are in good hands. Not great mitts like Bill Murray's but good enough to silence the online rabble, a backward, sexist bunch.

    Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones are your new comically gifted Ghostbusters. What Paul Fieg and Katie Dippold’s screenplay doesn’t conjure is anyone outside the Ghostbusters to propel the narrative.
