The one-liners are fast and furious in Sally Potter's wickedly entertaining 'The Party'

In "The Party," an acid-laced amuse-bouche of a movie from British writer-director Sally Potter, dinner never makes it to the table but the guests still get served, early and often. We are in the home of a London politician named Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas), who has just been appointed shadow minister for health of an undisclosed opposition party. But the celebratory mood swiftly turns toxic at a gathering where nearly every guest might as well be wearing a self-affixed "kick me" sign.

Fran–ois Ozon's psychosexual thriller 'Double Lover' is a twisty, trashy delight

Among its many virtues, Francois Ozon's wickedly uninhibited "Double Lover" brings startling new meaning to the term "opening shot." From its first post-credits frame, a small trompe l'oeil display of cinematic invention and gynecological technique, this cracked mirror of a movie knows exactly what it is: a ludicrous erotic-thriller trash-terpiece that boldly conjoins the sensibilities of Brian De Palma and David Cronenberg but with its own dash of Parisian kink. Fifty shades freed? More like 50 shades French!

Creators of Wallace and Gromit outdo themselves in 'Early Man'

Aardman films don't come out very often, but it's worth the wait because when one does, it's a work of art. The little English animation studio, home to those iconic figures of sculpted clay Wallace and Gromit, has won four Academy Awards for its handcrafted look and sweet, silly sensibility. It consistently delivers the quality work you can't achieve in a rush. In stop motion animation, capturing two seconds of footage is considered a solid day's work.

Movie review: 'Black Panther,' stellar superhero movie is among the best Marvel has ever made

Parents need to know that "Black Panther" is the first film in the Marvel cinematic universe to center on a superhero of color: African prince-turned-king T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), aka the Black Panther. As in all superhero movies, there's plenty of violence – in this case, mostly brutal hand-to-hand combat that gets quite intense, with bloody injuries and even deaths. Although there are a few shoot-outs with super-powered guns/cannons (as well as some cold-blooded killings), the majority of the action features spear and blade fighting. That said, some confrontations do include larger, explosive battles and very destructive car chases. Language and sexual content are pretty minimal – a few uses of "s--t" / "hell" and a couple of quick kisses, respectively.
