B 63% American Anarchist (2016) "American Anarchist" is an interesting look at accountability on several different levels.‐ Detroit News

C 67% Life (2017) Espinosa thinks he's making "Gravity," not a SyFy movie with an unusually good cast. In space, no one can hear you sigh with resignation.‐ Detroit News

B+ 39% Wilson (2017) Like Wilson himself, the movie is a bit of a throwback, out-of-step with the times, but whimsical in its execution.‐ Detroit News

A- 79% Personal Shopper (2017) "Personal Shopper" is tough to pin down, but it's a strange and stunning ride - haunting without being hokey, with surprises around every turn.‐ Detroit News

B+ 76% T2 Trainspotting (2017) If there's going to be a Trainspotting sequel, T2 Trainspotting is the best case scenario. It rewards a cult-like obsession with the first film, incorporating copious visual callbacks to Trainspotting and nuggets of the original's soundtrack into its DNA.‐ Detroit News

B+ 71% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Broadbent, so often a supporting player, is a treat in the lead role, soft and mournful, but with a youthful gleam in his eye.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
D+ 33% The Last Word (2017) Even when surrounded by junk, the 83-year-old MacLaine still has plenty of pep. She's a treasure, but "The Last Word" doesn't do her or her legacy justice.‐ Detroit News

B 96% Kedi (2017) "Kedi" is the cat's meow. Literally.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B+ 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) It's a tale as old as time, but in its latest imagining it still feels fresh.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2017
B- 78% Kong: Skull Island (2017) A fun if muddled monster movie that gets its best jolts from the sheer size of its beasts.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2017
B 92% Logan (2017) Jackman's performance is Clint Eastwood-esque, and the lines in Jackman's face tell the story of his worn character; he plays Wolverine as a man at the end of his line, adding at least a decade to his 48 years.‐ Detroit News

B 67% Before I Fall (2017) While it's far from subtle getting there, "Before I Fall" sticks its landing in its final moments. And what could have been a forgettable teen drama leaves a lasting impression.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
C- 19% Table 19 (2017) "Table 19" is like being stuck at the worst table at a bad wedding.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
C 21% The Shack (2017) "The Shack" is a grief-packed journey through loss, bargaining and acceptance that feels like an overly long church sermon.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
B 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) Some films are a speeding train. This one is a hammock on a Saturday afternoon.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
C+ 92% Toni Erdmann (2016) "Toni Erdmann" has plenty to say about parenting, ambition, feminism and modern happiness, but not enough to justify its absurdly longwinded running time.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
C 82% A United Kingdom (2017) Noble but stuffy, "A United Kingdom's" good intentions suffer from its dull, predictable beats.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
B+ 99% Get Out (2017) Writer-director Jordan Peele has fashioned a smart, scathing commentary ... as a base for his allegory on the horror of race in America.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2017
D+ 40% A Cure For Wellness (2017) At 90 minutes it could have been an eerie, tricky, well-crafted thriller. At two hours its wheels start to fall off. And then it continues to limp along for another 30 minutes, after which you wonder what the point of it all was in the first place.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
F 27% Fist Fight (2017) "Fist Fight" is so terminally unpleasant that it feels like the audience is the one catching a beating. In this fight, there are only losers.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
C 35% The Great Wall (2017) It's meant to play to as broad an audience as possible, so everything about it is spread thin, and its attempts at humor warrant light chuckles at best.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
B+ 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) It's the Bat-spoof we didn't know we needed and it gives Batman a chance to loosen up.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
D+ 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) There continues to be no chemistry between department store mannequins Steele and Grey, and the world director James Foley builds around them is flat and unrecognizable as real life.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
C 96% Paterson (2016) It's not exactly riveting material, and even Jim Jarmusch - the veteran writer-director who traffics in the day-to-day contemplation of human existence - struggles to make "Paterson" pop.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
B+ 84% Julieta (2016) Suárez gives a searing performance in the lead role, her grief overwhelming her to the point where she physically wears it on her body.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
A- 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) In the wrong hands, this type of thing could be a drag, but "John Wick 2" is one of the most fun action pictures in recent memory.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
B+ 98% I Am Not Your Negro (2017) It is an urgent, gut-wrenching film that doesn't sugarcoat the truth. America's race problem is all of our problem, it argues, and will not change until all of us step up and take responsibility for our role in it.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
C- 25% The Comedian (2017) There's a big problem at the center of "The Comedian": It's not funny. At all.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2017
D+ 33% A Dog's Purpose (2017) "A Dog's Purpose" finds itself in a peculiar spot, pandering to dog lovers, but still not giving them what they want.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
C- 42% Gold (2017) McConaughey does everything he can to make it shine, but the mine is empty.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
B 88% 20th Century Women (2017) It's a credit to Mills that he makes it feel like he's making the Earth move even when he's just capturing a snapshot in time.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
B+ 90% Elle (2016) "Elle" never pulls any punches, and Verhoeven titillates right until the end.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
B 43% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Big, dumb times call for big, dumb movies, and they don't come much bigger or dumber than "xXx: The Return of Xander Cage."‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
C+ 83% The Founder (2017) "The Founder" is a bit like McDonald's: it's satisfying, but it leaves you hungry for more.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
C- 75% Split (2017) "Split" doesn't do enough to overcome its weaknesses, bouncing between a grungy horror exploitation flick, a psychological thriller and a supervillain origin story.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
A- 80% Patriots Day (2017) It's a story about one city, but it honors the essence of America, and it shows that when the going gets rough, we're all Boston Strong.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
B- 34% Live By Night (2017) It sure looks great - it was lensed by Tarantino regular Robert Richardson - and its gangster-movie tropes are familiar, yet welcome.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
C 85% Silence (2017) For those not exulted by the inner-workings of devotion, it's a slog.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
B 94% Hunter Gatherer (2016) Locy's good intentions and optimistic worldview take him only so far, and he struggles to find a fitting capper for his story. But the performances and the characters linger in your mind.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
C- 23% The Bye Bye Man (2017) It keeps you guessing, if only to find out, "uh, is that all there is?"‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
B 93% Hidden Figures (2017) Johnson, Vaughan and Jackson were trailblazers whose fight deserves to be heard, and "Hidden Figures" honors them by turning their story into an audience-pleaser.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
B+ 87% A Monster Calls (2017) This is a tough movie that takes on adult issues and doesn't shy away from the grim realities of its subject matter. But that's what makes this grim children's story work. It's a work of lovely darkness.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2017
B 93% Fences (2016) "Fences" is an effective drama, but it feels rigid, its stage origins handicapping its storytelling.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2016
A 86% Lion (2016) Its themes are universal. Everyone has a home, and everyone feels connected to it, no matter how far they travel.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2016
C 40% Why Him? (2016) Like "Meet the Parents," but littered with F-bombs, "Why Him?" is a holiday comedy that never quite figures itself out.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 23, 2016
C 31% Passengers (2016) Lawrence and Pratt are both big movie stars and they look good, fulfilling the minimum requirements of holiday movie fare. But "Passengers" is a missed shot at something more worthy of their talents.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
C 73% Sing (2016) The songs are rudimentary, the animation doesn't sparkle, the story doesn't inspire.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
A 89% Jackie (2016) "Jackie" is a gamble, and Portman makes it pay off.‐ Detroit News
Read More | Posted Dec 16, 2016
C- 12% Collateral Beauty (2016) A holiday movie with Hallmark Channel DNA that should star Jaleel White and Judith Light but somehow snagged a top-line cast that includes Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Edward Norton.‐ Detroit News
