Darren Aronofsky has been talking a lot about the meaning behind his new film, Mother!, following harsh critical response and a weak opening weekend at the box office, and in a recent interview, he contended that the film was meant to provoke, not please.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Slam Trump For Backing Graham-Cassidy Healthcare Bill
22 September 2017 5:59 AM, PDT
Jimmy Kimmel lambasted Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy's proposed healthcare bill on Thursday for the third consecutive night, arguing that it removes protections from those who need it most – patients with preexisting conditions.

A producer is giving journalists an impromptu tour, pointing out small details like the Malaysian puppets hanging in an officer's ready room and bragging about the creation processes of phasers, badges and alien races.

'Victoria and Abdul' Review: Judi Dench Is 'a Pleasure' in Shallow Royal Film
21 September 2017 2:34 PM, PDT
Since Dame Judi Dench is acting royalty she has no trouble playing the hell out of Queen Victoria in her last years on the throne of England. Even better, she lets her ingrained mischief remove any hints of sanctimony from the old girl. Sadly, Victoria & Abdul, directed by the usually scrappy Stephen Frears from a dutiful script by Lee Hall, only sets one place at the table. Abdul Karim (Bollywood star Ali Fazal), the lowly Indian Muslim clerk who's sent from Agra to England to present the Queen with a ceremonial coin, »
'Ninjago' Review: Latest Lego Movie Is a 'Full House of Crass Commercialism'
21 September 2017 2:01 PM, PDT
It started as The Lego Ninjago Movie, now it's just Ninjago. Anyway you slice this animated free-for-all, it doesn't measure up to The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie. The story, based on a line of building sets that debuted in 2011, concerns high school students who have secret lives as ninjas. Why? They need to protect their hometown of Ninjago, a nation constructed from Lego blocks. It's cool to have them voiced by Fred Armisen, Kumail Nanjiani, Abbi Jacobson, Michael Peña and Zach Woods. But all the caffeinated action »

Sibling rivalry culminates in a knockdown brawl between Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller's characters in the new trailer for Noah Baumbach's film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), but the volatility doesn't stop there.

'Stronger' Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Does 'Boston Strong' the Right Way, Warts and All
20 September 2017 12:17 PM, PDT
Based on a True Story: That phrase – Hollywood-speak for bullshit – can put audiences on guard for fact-fudging and bogus uplift. Not so with Stronger, a powerhouse biopic that sidesteps the pitfalls of the genre in favor of keeping it real, warts and all. Kudos to a brilliant, hilariously unexpected performance from Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, a beer-guzzling, Boston boyo who lost both his legs, just above the knee, in the 2013 Marathon bombing. For director David Gordon Green (George Washington, Pineapple Express), the way to truly honor the man is »

"He really doesn't like democracy. He thinks it's an inconvenient, messy process," she said of the Russian leader. "And he doesn't like us. He wants to destabilize our country, sow doubt about our democracy. … He wants to undermine how we see each other."
