44% Hands of Stone (2016) "While Mr. Ramírez is excellent at portraying Durán's cockiness and imposing physicality, the movie struggles to make him a well-rounded character. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 25, 2016
3/4 28% Ben-Hur (2016) "This is a Ben-Hur of and for its time, but also a little better than its time, it turns out. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 19, 2016
96% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) "Knight has put together a picture that hits a lot of all-ages-entertainment sweet spots while avoiding hackneyed conventions, and ends up delivering what feels like a sincere family-friendly message. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 18, 2016
86% When Two Worlds Collide (2016) "A dutiful, and ultimately pedestrian, documentary. There is something evasive about it as well. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 16, 2016
2/4 59% Anthropoid (2016) "A lot of the time the experience of the movie is like looking at a very long wobbly rectangle, and the frequently abrupt cutting doesn't help. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 12, 2016
3/4 88% Blood Father (2016) "An efficient and pleasurable bad-man-tries-to-go-good exposition that gives Mel Gibson ample opportunity to flex his now-somewhat-grizzled movie-star muscle. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 12, 2016
87% Pete's Dragon (2016) "It is slightly unfair to say that this reboot of "Pete's Dragon" is middling on a larger scale, but it's not entirely inaccurate either. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 11, 2016
78% Joshy (2016) "Alcohol-induced shambling, cocaine-induced motor-mouthing and mushroom-induced melancholia are depicted with sobering accuracy. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 11, 2016
2/4 81% Sausage Party (2016) "Your mileage may vary, as they say. Also, hugs not drugs. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 11, 2016
1.5/4 No Score Yet Let's Be Evil (2016) "The movie's relentless one-note tone makes its final twist, such as it is, entirely predictable and pat. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 5, 2016
3/4 94% Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny (2016) "While not an earth-shaker, this documentary is an amiable, informative look at a guy who is shaping up to be, yes, one of the major American directors of the last fifty years. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 5, 2016
No Score Yet Will You Dance with Me? "This is not a picture about which extravagant claims ought to be made; it really is, in the end, an hour and change in a London disco in 1984. But as a page from an artist's notebook, and a time capsule curio, it rates pretty high. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Aug 4, 2016
3/4 63% The Land (2016) "Steven Caple Jr. is a filmmaker worth watching, here and in the future. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 29, 2016
4/4 80% Indignation (2016) "Drawing superb performances from each and every one of his actors, Schamus meticulously makes every shot, and every gesture contained within that shot, count. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 29, 2016
96% Gleason (2016) "While the director's vision never strays too far from the positive message that he and the Gleasons doubtlessly wish to impart, the movie winds up being most effective at doing what cinema cannot avoid doing. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 28, 2016
100% Homo Sapiens (2016) "Each individual shot creates a frisson of desolation that resonates far beyond the facile irony suggested by the movie's title. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/4 90% Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016) "What makes Summertime really refreshing is that it doesn't treat its central romance as anything but wholly normal, despite the attitude of other characters, or indeed, the tenor of the time in which it is set. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 22, 2016
4% Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party (2016) "This content ... will be familiar to anyone who's examined a right-wing website. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 21, 2016
96% The Seventh Fire (2016) "The betrayal of Native Americans by larger forces looms over this powerful movie without ever being explicitly discussed. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 21, 2016
12% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) "The 37th installment in the popular computer animation franchise. O.K., actually it's only the fifth feature, but what with the shorts and TV specials and video games, it feels as if there have been so, so many more. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 21, 2016
91% Phantom Boy (2016) "Instead of maintaining an effervescent fizzle, "Phantom Boy" too frequently sputters piffle. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 71% Café Society (2016) "It's the filmmaking around the writing that casts a particular spell. Particularly near the end, as Allen adds up the moral failings and squelched desires and doused dreams of all his characters. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 14, 2016

Posted Jul 8, 2016
68% Men Go To Battle (2016) "With the exception of Ms. Korine, the performers often seem to have a hard time shaking off the aura of the contemporary. Nevertheless, there's much of value here. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 7, 2016
90% Under The Sun (2016) "The movie raises disquieting questions, including a few that Mr. Mansky might not have meant to. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jul 5, 2016

Posted Jun 30, 2016
33% Marauders (2016) ""Marauders" lays out a scenario in the first 40 minutes or so that, oddly enough, makes you think "this is not an entirely uninteresting premise for a thriller." But after that, things devolve ... " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 30, 2016

Posted Jun 29, 2016
3/4 91% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) "The movie put me on a major Zappa listening jag ... which makes it sound like a fan-only proposition. It kind of might be, but I hope it isn't. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 24, 2016

Posted Jun 23, 2016
91% Three (Saam Yan Hang) (2016) "It's not a career highlight for the director. But a relatively ordinary film from Mr. To packs more genuine entertainment value than what passes for above-average Hollywood action fare these days. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
51% The Neon Demon (2016) ""The Neon Demon" is hot garbage that dares you to call it offensive. In addition, it's offensive. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
95% Nuts! (2016) ""Nuts!," an inventive documentary directed by Penny Lane ("Our Nixon") from Thom Stylinski's script, tells a quintessentially American story - one that elicits both wonder and horror. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Jun 20, 2016
44% Clown (2016) "I would ask any up-and-coming special-effects artist: Just because you can mold a convincing replica of a 6-year-old's severed arm, does it necessarily mean that you should? " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 17, 2016
3/4 95% Tickled (2016) "The moviemakers craft a satisfying narrative while leaving the viewer with some questions; this is a movie that manages to be disquieting and entertaining simultaneously. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 17, 2016
93% Parched (2016) "Despite the appalling circumstances and events it depicts, the movie's plain and unstinting affection for its lead characters gives "Parched" a frequently buoyant tone. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 16, 2016
3/4 48% Genius (2016) "It could be that I see so many dumb movies these days that I'm inclined to cut a lot of slack for one of conspicuous intelligence, but I greatly enjoyed "Genius." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 10, 2016
3.5/4 66% Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016) "The immediate effect Jacquot achieves, with quiet droll and some considerable dread, is bracing. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 10, 2016
No Score Yet Call Her Applebroog (2016) "Beth B is not out to deliver a comprehensive biography. Instead, she achieves a vivid snapshot of a still-vital artist late in a still-purposeful life. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
2.5/4 45% Approaching the Unknown (2016) "It remains cool, competent, engaging within a narrow realm ... but its unknown realm never explodes into anything remarkable. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Jun 2, 2016
3/4 82% Chevalier (2016) "Tsangari never lays on too heavy a hand. One is free to contemplate the allegorical and satirical implications, but also free to enjoy the spectacle of self-imposed insecurity that plays out among these characters. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 27, 2016
3/4 94% Presenting Princess Shaw (2016) "It's a pretty involving piece of storytelling, and because Princess Shaw herself is such an immediately engaging, sympathetic, and inspiring figure. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
