‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ satisfies in a parade of superhero films

Director Bryan Singer invigorates his latest X-Men film with vintage 1980s charm in an origin story about how the mutant supergroup unites and divides in response to the villain Apocalypse. And while battles between heroes are an X-Men tradition, warring among the ranks has become a superhero trope this season, at play in both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Captain America: Civil War.”

Movie review: 'Love & Friendship' is pure pleasure

Lady Susan Vernon, the dubious heroine of Jane Austen's 1790s-era novella "Lady Susan," is a very accomplished flirt: the sort, an acquaintance notes, who "does not confine herself to that sort of honest flirtation which satisfies most people, but aspires to the more delicious gratification of making a whole family miserable." She is, in short, someone who would be thoroughly annoying in real life, but quite delightful in fiction - and, in Whit Stillman's sparkling comedy "Love & Friendship," on screen.

Movie review: 'X-Men: Apocalypse' loses some of the magic

The last two "X-Men" movies - "Days of Future Past" (2014) and "First Class" (2011) - were wonderful surprises that didn't conform to the notion that sequels are, more than likely, woefully inferior to the original. Rejuvenating the Marvel franchise with a strong, alternate cast playing youthful versions of the characters turned out to be a stroke of blockbuster inspiration.

Q&A with Oscar Isaac, a bad guy of biblical proportions in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

If you were casting a supervillain in a comic-book movie, odds are Oscar Isaac wouldn't be the first person you'd think of. Until he broke out to worldwide fame last year in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" as ace pilot Poe Dameron - a guy squarely on the light side of the Force - Isaac was best known for his work in heady, small-scale fare like "Inside Llewyn Davis," "A Most Violent Year" and "Ex Machina."
