Movie review: James Gray’s sci-fi epic ‘Ad Astra’ fuses the emotional and intellectual to dazzling effect

Somber, stirring, ridiculous and just shy of sublime, James Gray's speculative fiction "Ad Astra" opens with a vision of a man falling to Earth. He's an astronaut named Roy McBride (Brad Pitt), and he's perched on an International Space Antenna – basically a very, very high-altitude ladder, with the world spreading out like a vast blue-green carpet beneath him. It's an impossibly serene and beautiful moment that is disrupted by a series of sudden explosions, as shock waves surge through the antenna and send Roy tumbling toward what looks like near-certain doom.

Movie review: Zach Galifianakis stretches web series ‘Between Two Ferns’ to a snapping point

The best part of "Between Two Ferns: The Movie," a semi-amusing, Netflix-produced addendum to the popular Funny or Die web series, is the closing-credits blooper reel.

Review: ‘Where’s My Roy Cohn?’ is a blunt, absorbing account of a master manipulator’s life and crimes

There are documentary portraits that pay respectful tribute to their famous subjects, that measure their lives and accomplishments with varying degrees of admiration and ambivalence. And then there is "Where's My Roy Cohn?," which moves decidedly and unsurprisingly in the opposite direction. Its view of the notorious attorney and power broker Roy Cohn can be summed up in one interviewee's unminced words: "If you were in his presence, you knew you were in the presence of evil." After (or even before) seeing this absorbing, excoriating documentary, you may find it hard to disagree.
