Friday movie roundup – May 20

Sup, bros and sisses? I baked up a big pot of reviews for you. Here they are, listed in order of the age of their top-billed star, from oldest to youngest:

“The Meddler” (PG-13) B+
“A Bigger Splash” (R) B
“The Nice Guys” (R) B+
“The Angry Birds Movie” (PG) D-
“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” (R) B+

This week’s episode of Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider covers those same films (except “The Meddler,” which we hit last week), plus listeners’ ideas for other app-based movies.

At Mental Floss, I wrote about “Pan’s Labyrinth.” Did you know that movie freaked Stephen King out? Well, it did. Read the article and find out more things, if you want.
