Posted Feb 11, 2016
3/4 83% Deadpool (2016) "Maximally cheeky. Perversely potty-mouthed. Riotously funny. Insanely violent. Uneven as all get out. And fun, fun, fun. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Feb 4, 2016
3.5/4 80% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "It's gloriously colorful, very funny and, better yet, unexpectedly substantive and genuinely moving. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 29, 2016
1.5/4 55% Lazer Team (2016) "It's all been seen before. And given that the ending leaves the door wide open for a sequel, it may be seen again. But it shouldn't. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 29, 2016
2.5/4 58% The Finest Hours (2016) "The storm effects are first-rate, immersive all the way. The tale-telling ability of director Craig Gillespie is frustratingly inconsistent. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
2.5/4 79% Ip Man 3 (2016) "There have been all kinds of Ip Man movies. "The Grandmaster," which played in Seattle in 2013, has exquisitely lovely visuals. "Ip Man 3" has Mike Tyson. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
2.5/4 60% Monster Hunt (2016) "Director Raman Hui mixes martial-arts fights and slapstick comedy (lots of mugging by Jing) into a whimsical, fast-paced monster mash. " ‐ Seattle Times

3.5/4 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Kaufman, the mind behind "Being John Malkovich" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," possesses an artistic sensibility unlike any other filmmaker working today. That sensibility informs every word and frame of "Anomalisa" ... " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016

Posted Jan 14, 2016
3/4 54% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "It marries visceral Hollywood-style filmmaking (a Bay trademark) with sober subject matter in a manner that doesn't trivialize the seriousness of the story it's telling. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016

Posted Dec 29, 2015
2/4 31% Daddy's Home (2015) ""Daddy's Home" is a movie with a one-joke premise: Will Ferrell, he's a pincushion of punishment. Make him screech. Watch him squirm. " ‐ Seattle Times

1/4 17% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) "Exposure to 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip' may result in the dislocation of eyeballs in viewers over the age of 7 due to uncontrollable rolling of the eyes at the sight of the idiotic antics committed on screen. " ‐ Seattle Times

Posted Dec 14, 2015
2.5/4 91% The Girl in the Book (2015) "From time to time, Cohn allows a few rays of light to penetrate the gloom and suggest that Alice may find a way transcend her despair. It's a small measure of relief from the overall mood of hopelessness. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Dec 10, 2015

Posted Nov 20, 2015
2.5/4 72% Trumbo (2015) "Roach's direction is pedestrian. He turns the picture into an earnest primer of the issues of the era and a road map of how Trumbo slowly resuscitates his career ... " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
1/4 67% The Night Before (2015) "Self-indulgent? Definitely. Funny? Occasionally. Worst Christmas movie ever? Possibly. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015

Posted Nov 19, 2015
0/4 44% Dangerous Men (2015) ""Dangerous Men," the picture's production notes inform, took 26 years to reach the big screen. After having seen it, I wonder: What was the rush? " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3/4 100% East Side Sushi (2015) ""East Side Sushi" is a charming little picture. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3/4 43% The 33 (2015) "The outcome of the episode is known - all were rescued after 69 days underground while a rapt world watched on TV - but director Patricia Riggen keeps the tension high with those omnipresent sonic cues. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
2.5/4 33% My All American (2015) "Yes, there will be tears, and they are well-earned. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
3/4 77% The Assassin (2015) "The visuals relegate the acting to secondary importance. They overwhelm the story. And they make "The Assassin" unforgettable. " ‐ Seattle Times
Posted Nov 5, 2015

Posted Nov 5, 2015
2.5/4 64% Spectre (2015) "In a number of key scenes, "Spectre" re-creates classic moments from past Bonds. Think of them as James Bond's Greatest Hits. Think of them also as signs Mendes and his writers have run out of fresh ideas. " ‐ Seattle Times
