Abrams has grown into a confident cinematic storyteller, capable of setting high stakes, staging impossible situations, and having his characters get out of them, one after another, with a combination of exciting action and just enough of their intellect.
NOW YOU SEE ME stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Common, Michael Kelly, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman.

His slow-motion prowess and action-film chops add a surreal element, but Bay’s camera leers at the world the same way his characters do. He wants to celebrate his “heroes” at the same time he’s making fun of them, but his over-the-top delivery gives him away.

David Cronenberg’s adaptation of ‘Naked Lunch’ is out now from The Criterion Collection in an extras-packed Blu-ray. The cinema’s most intellectual purveyor of psychological torment masquerading as body horror proved himself up to the task of bringing Burroughs’ hallucinatory masterwork to the screen.
Michael Bay has crafted some of the most badass and all-around enjoyable films my eyes have ever had the pleasure of seeing in a darkened movie theater…and that is why this April the Alamo Drafthouse and Tough Guy Cinema is celebrating Bay’s new release with a non-stop, all-day , all-Bay mainline of eye cocaine called BAYMAGEDDON.
