8/10 100% Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010) Never Sleep Again won't be winning any awards as the kind of documentary that changes and rearranges the genre. Instead, it is a wildly informative summary of a seminal horror icon - and the people who populated his dark, disturbing dreamscapes.‐ PopMatters

7/10 87% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) When it works, it works magnificently. When it doesn't, it only has itself, and it's overreaching screenplay, to blame.‐ PopMatters

4/5 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) As rousing as it is respectful, carving out its own path while playing within the boundaries of the previous blockbusters, this is one of the best Star Wars stories ever put to film‐ Film Racket

2/5 32% Abattoir (2016) suffers from the whole "first chapter in a franchise no one is asking for" syndrome‐ Film Racket

3.5/5 75% Miss Sloane (2016) The bureaucratic chess game at the heart of the film is a compelling contest where moral ambiguity sparks contemplation about ends justifying means‐ Film Racket

2.5/5 No Score Yet Kill Ratio (2016) does nothing to really differentiate itself from the pack, and can't find a means of making more out of its limited appeal‐ Film Racket

3/5 76% Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016) Far from wearing out his welcome, Hart the comedian must battle Hart the superstar for some of his stage time -- and he doesn't always succeed. ‐ PopMatters

3.5/5 83% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) By piling on the characterization and atmosphere, Mike Flanagan creates a true horror classic out of broken pieces from the previous title. ‐ PopMatters
Read More | Posted Oct 29, 2016
3/5 21% Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) By removing most of the "Go with God" material, the faith-based filmmaker has created his most consistent mainstream comedy to date. ‐ PopMatters

3/10 40% Morgan (2016) A collection of moldy old motion picture ideas dressed up for another grasp of the brass ring. It misses it by a mile.‐ PopMatters

3.5/5 58% Bad Moms (2016) It may not hit all the right notes, but it definitely offers some late Summer laughs.‐ Film Racket

3.5/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Star Trek Beyond successfully straddles the fine line between Star Wars' high tech toy merchandising and the serious ideas fostered by concept creator, Gene Roddenberry. It's also a stone cold blast. ‐ PopMatters

4/5 76% Lights Out (2016) Lights Out succeeds because it does something few contemporary horror films manage-it's frightening‐ Film Racket

3.5/5 34% Now You See Me 2 (2016) It's not a guilty pleasure so much as a guileless one. It knows it's a fraud and it owns every minute of it. The result is a wild ride that seems epic at the time, but shrinks in the memory. Kind of like a magic act.‐ Film Racket

4/5 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) the fact that The Conjuring 2 is so consistent creepy says a lot about its value, and the worth of the man making it all happen‐ Film Racket

7/10 77% Keanu (2016) Are there other ideas percolating beneath the surface, struggling for recognition beyond the ballyhoo and burlesque? Absolutely. That Keanu handles them subtlety may be its most masterful move.‐ PopMatters

7/10 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) Barbershop: The Next Cut is very good. It tries many ambitious things, and for the most part, succeeds. That's a rarity, indeed.‐ PopMatters

1.5/5 25% London Has Fallen (2016) London Has Fallen is escapism as a chore, trying to inject present day political subtext to what is basically a bunch of people playing cops and robbers, and all said intention does is drive the audience further and further away‐ Film Racket

1.5/5 23% Zoolander 2 (2016) That famed "blue steel" look may be lethal, but the lack of anything funny here is far deadlier for those hoping for a good time.‐ Film Racket
