Insulting and awkward, Hot Pursuit is a rehash of age-old material that runs cold quickly and is likely to set the entire women’s movement back for decades.

Ex Machina is a science-fiction film that takes a smart and realistic look at the creation of intelligent, lifelike robots and our selfish desire to build them.

April 17, 2015 – 7:45 am
