2/5 40% 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

3/5 60% Allied (2016) A script that regularly comes unaccountably unhinged, and a performance by Pitt that is puzzling, all but put the kaybosh on greatness. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) watching Redmayne do a mating pas de deux with a mountainous cross between a rhino and a firefly is almost worth the price of admission on its own‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 100% Tower (2016) Strikingly elegiac, it recreates a time and place that can never be lived again on many levels, and does so with sensitivity and compassion. ‐ 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

4/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) this film is a harrowing experience, but also one that is jubilantly uplifting in its celebration of quiet courage and the strength of personal belief‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) this is film that should not be taken lightly. It will seep into the dark places of your psyche, and titillate your moral compass in disturbing yet delightful ways. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 96% The Love Witch (2016) Combines wicked visual juxtapositions, inspired bad acting, and the oddest burlesque show ever in an inordinately entertaining examination of the perils of waiting for Prince Charming. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) Smartly written, perfectly acted, and genuinely heart-stopping throughout, it's a compelling dystopian vision of corporate greed rendered as a spectacular special effects action-adventure. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 33% 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 63% 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 95% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) A cracking good time at the movies. Inventive, even daring, and barely a predictable moment in its 118 minutes. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2016
4/5 78% 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 70% Operation Avalanche (2016) Starts as a satire and ends as thriller, making the journey from the one to the other not just a logical progression, but an almost inevitable one.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 35% Blair Witch (2016) sets a new standard for found-footage horror with a story that hews to the tropes of the original and yet is a fresh hell of imagination and primal fear. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) It's at once an intimate look from the inside out about what it was like to be them, and a literate consideration from the outside in on their impact on the culture.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 77% London Road (2016) It is what art does best, consider the human condition with the clarity of a bracing new perspective, and finding truths therein that could not be discovered in any other fashion. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
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

4/5 83% In Order of Disappearance (2016) Exhibits a scintillatingly savage whimsy.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 40% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) Ably considers the resonant interplay between things that cannot possibly be and things that should never be.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2016
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

3/5 59% War Dogs (2016) Jittering uncertainly between farce and melodrama, it achieves a few moments of sublime absurdity as it satirizes the business of war.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/4 82% Sausage Party (2016) Like the sex, drugs, and politics that are fodder for the script, the question of what happens when we leave this world is addressed directly, and with the same fulsome sense of mischief. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2016
5/5 66% Anthropoid (2016) strong stuff, but realized with a beauty of intensity that grabs you by the throat whether you know the story from history of not. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 65% Nerve (2016) fails on every level but two, and those are the ones that are the most important. Do we care about what happens to our unlikely heroine? Do the increasingly dangerous dares keep us on the edge of our collective seat? Yes and yes. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 25% Suicide Squad (2016) time is pulled like taffy at the edge of a black hole, which is a fine comparison to this flick, where explosions and CGI, helicopter crashes are trapped with no hope of escape into a story that might make them worth seeing‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2016
4/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) nifty and imaginative CGI, clever twists and turns, plus what science fiction can do so well, comment on the present from another perspective, not to mention taking stock of what it means to live an authentic life ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2016
5/5 97% Little Men (2016) Sachs achieves a wondrously natural feel to the film that embraces complexities and contradictions while refusing to create heroes or villains‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2016
2/5 55% Jason Bourne (2016) its exertions rarely rise above a series of hackneyed tropes and painful clichés before pulling itself together in the last 15 minutes or so‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2016
5/5 99% Don't Think Twice (2016) a bittersweet, insightful consideration of the value of the unexamined dream, done with a dash of impudent wit.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2016
5/5 71% Café Society (2016) Allen returns here to one of his familiar preoccupations. That would be pondering with a mordant wit whether the universe has an order of some sort, or if it is all just chaos with nothing afterwards but oblivion.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2016
3/5 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Scrat's eternal and Sisyphean struggle both to acquire and to retain the acorn he's been chasing has, in equal parts, both hilarity and a keen commentary on the noble struggle of humankind against a basically unfeeling universe‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 22, 2016
4/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) There is a wry sort of bonkers at work here that pays tribute to the original (wicked cameos and shout-outs abound), but doesn't copy it.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2016
4/5 79% The American Side (2016) Tesla, government black ops, and a shadowy cabal running the world all wrapped up in a nifty neo-noir that pays suitable homage to the genre. Be still my foolish heart.‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2016
3/5 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) a raunchy romp that is fearless in how it skirts the shoals of sleaze before it wades right in with an amiable nature governing the hijinks‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2016
2/5 35% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) The most satisfying moments barely involve the humans at all. One particularly arresting sequence pits enraged ungulates against a Belgian settlement, another with hippopotami demonstrating why they are, in fact, the most dangerous animal in the jungle. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2016
71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Guns blaze here, but it's the razor-sharp minds engaged in scathingly brilliant maneuvers to outfox an opponent that evoke awe. Even gasps of delight and admiration. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 69% Central Intelligence (2016) . . .everything that the perfect bromance flick should be, starting with the improbable but undeniable chemistry between stars Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson‐ Killer Movie Reviews
