3.5/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Faintly Bond-like, lushly shot and sometimes smart, "American Assassin" is an international action thriller that starts slow but picks up speed and just outruns its own clichés to make for a gripping two-hour ride.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 52% The Boss Baby (2017) Kids will enjoy it, and adults will, too. I laughed knowingly with the other cineastes at the "Glengarry Glen Ross" reference. But they are not likely to love it like the trailblazing originals.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 17% Man Down (2016) An admirable, but muddled attempt to present a new perspective on the mental damage of war, showing it both from inside and outside one soldier's wrecked mind.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 56% Rules Don't Apply (2016) Beatty's choices as an actor, his adoption of a bunch of ticks to reveal his take on the recluse, are rather delightful. You get to know this guy, how he reacts to stuff, and what is likely going on inside his odd brain.‐ New York Daily News

3.5/5 94% Arrival (2016) Adams is convincing and smart-seeming, bringing appropriate queasiness to the position of being a college professor drawn into a rough military world.‐ New York Daily News

1/5 34% Masterminds (2016) This movie is not for you. This movie is not for anyone. Except maybe for Lorne Michaels. It must make him feel good that he can still get movies made after all these years.‐ New York Daily News

5/5 78% American Honey (2016) This shimmering, raw, hip-hop hymnal of a film by Andrea Arnold is an American tale that is both gorgeously original and rooted in some of the greatest stories this country has ever produced.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 39% Morgan (2016) A lot makes me uneasy about where biology and technology are going. But Great Scott! Is "Morgan" really the best you can do?‐ New York Daily News

3/5 43% Forsaken (2016) The story is terribly unsurprising and that drains the interest out of the film like a bullet hole through a horse trough.‐ New York Daily News
