3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) WALL is a big, blustery action-adventure flick in the classic mold, but with one exception. There's no damsel in distress here. Instead, the winsome lady of the piece is a warrior with nerves of steel and no fear of heights. Kudos there.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 No Score Yet Six Rounds (2016) A perfect distillation of character and mood expressed in silence and in shouts; of emotion visualized through quick cuts and slow motion into a tone poem of stark eloquence with nary a flaw in its running time.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 39% A Cure For Wellness (2017) This hodge-podge of dental torture, putative madness, and a very clumsy use of eels as metaphor wears out its welcome well before the final credits roll, skittering pell-mell towards an ending that is painfully obvious and even more painfully trite.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) revisits all those elements that were so very right in the first film, and ... amps up into another violent flight of fancy replete with exquisitely choreographed mayhem and a suitably black sense of humor. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 25% The Comedian (2017) I wish THE COMEDIAN were more focused. As it ponders issues of ageism and talent in the age of social media and viral videos, it may never gel, but it does resound.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 95% Neruda (2016) As a portrait of an artist with imperfections and genius, it has a truth that mere reportage cannot approach. As a portrait of a country grappling with applying abstract ideology to human endeavor, it is unimpeachable.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 34% Live By Night (2017) if only we were given a plausible reason for Joseph battling through a bloodbath in a white linen suit and not getting a spot of anything on him. Even sweat.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 84% Silence (2017) A maddening film more to be admired than enjoyed as it wrestles with questions of faith, compassion, and the prison of dogma. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 96% Paterson (2016) The quintessence of everything Jim Jarmusch has done before. Playful in approach, profound in meaning, it is a lyrical evocation of joy and sorrow as lived by a bus driver/poet during one eventful yet ordinary week in his life. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 98% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) Uses deceptively simple animation to tell the epic adventure. of Sasha, a spirited and determined 15-year-old set on restoring her family's honor, and the legacy her of her beloved grandfather.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 31% Passengers (2016) A long, increasingly preposterous slog whose most tantalizing element is the question of why Jennifer Lawrence looks so very much like a young Renee Zellweger in some shots.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 39% Why Him? (2016) Cranston's mastery of the slow burn coupled with discomfited politeness makes the most of a script that regularly goes off the rails into crass and scatological shoals. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 18% Assassin's Creed (2016) a middling sort of film almost redeemed by fine performances by Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Oh, and a truly kick-ass rendering of 15th-century Parkour. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) From a whiz-bang opening sequence where space folds in on itself as combatants hurl magical fire at on another, to the charismatic, ahem, marvel that is Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, this action film is a knockout.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 38% Kampai! For the Love of Sake (2016) A paean to more than just rice wine. It is a consideration of tradition in transition and the wondrous possibilities that being open to new ways can engender.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Burton seems uninterested in the live-action component that Burton seems uninterested in what comes between the bouts of CGI, gifting it with lackluster pacing as his protagonists fumble easy shots and make several questionable decisions ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 96% Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016) A cracking good time at the movies. Inventive, even daring, and barely a predictable moment in its 118 minutes. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 77% Goat (2016) If the story takes familiar turns, it does nothing to lessen its impact. The calamities arrive like way stations in a classic Greek tragedy of hubris and excess.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 85% Sully (2016) hinges on the superiority of experience over theory, a soothing message in a mechanized world that relegates the human factor to a slot just this side of superfluous, but one that needed the kind of subtlety that Hanks delivers in his performance.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 40% Morgan (2016) A high-minded film that wants us all to ponder what it means to be human. Alas, the most ponder-worthy thing in this film is wondering how Kate Mara managed to do all that running through the piney woods in those very high heels.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 25% Ben-Hur (2016) If you must, it should be seen on the big screen for that chariot race. Otherwise this limp simulacrum of epic filmmaking should be eschewed in favor of that silent version. Trust me. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
