Moana (2016)

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

"I'm thrilled Burton is trying to get back some of the sweetness that his recent exercises in garish fairytale-telling lacked ("Dark Shadows," the "Alice in Wonderland" films) but he seems to have lost the knack." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Gleason (2016)

"The gift of "Gleason" to moviegoers is that it depicts people who know they don't have all the answers and who are trying to figure them out in front of our eyes." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Suicide Squad (2016)

"The biggest bummer about Suicide Squad is that its ads promised something different from the other too-many-superheroes-crammed-in-one-movie movies. What it delivers is yet another film overflowing with superheroes we barely get to know." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Jason Bourne (2016)

Maggie's Plan (2016)

"I don't get why it's taking so long for moviegoers to fall in love with Greta Gerwig, but maybe "Maggie's Plan" is the one that finally makes you plight your troth?" ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Love & Friendship (2016)

"Love & Friendship is hilarious, maybe the funniest movie of the year, and that it's classic Austen, featuring a sarcastic heroine who thinks she knows what's best for everyone and who probably is right." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

The Invitation (2016)

"Like Will, the movie balances on a precipice between the everyday and the fantastic. It feels like it would make sense for almost anything to happen in the movie. And then it does." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Applause (Applaus) (2010)

"The story is not new, but the film's measured take and Steen's volatile performance are worth seeing." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Midnight Special (2016)

"The emotional satisfaction of "Midnight Special" comes from Nichols' spare screenplay, in which the characters hesitate to say what they feel, but we're able to fill it in because we've come to understand them so well." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

""Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" is a pretty funny movie. Then, it's a not-bad drama. Then, it's a wacky comedy. Then, it's a tedious romance. Then, I'm not exactly sure what it's trying to do." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Race (2016)

"I understand the screenwriters' decision to pair Owens' story with the drama surrounding the U.S. decision whether to compete in the Olympics, but that timeline robs us of some of the drama of the protagonist's story." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Son of Saul (2015)

"The film's tight focus works in a number of ways. It's literally a new way of looking at the Holocaust and, as a result, it uncovers bits of behavior that you may not have thought about ..." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"Tarantino revisits some of his favorite tricks from "Pulp Fiction," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Reservoir Dogs," but "Hateful" doesn't feel like a retread ..." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

""The Force Awakens" is satisfying on its own (no half of a "Hunger Games" movie here), but it also sets the stage for these new characters to go off on some great adventures in episodes to come." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015)

The Martian (2015)

"The Martian is entertaining not because of how it ends, which you can probably guess, but from watching a whole bunch of really smart people figure out how to get there." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

The Good Dinosaur (2015)

"The resulting movie is not bad -- in fact, it's often quite good -- but it's hard not to imagine how much better it could have been if Pixar had hit it out of the Jurassic park once again." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

"This sort of crime drama has been much more likely to show up on short-form TV of late but "Secret" shows there's still room for it on the big screen." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Spectre (2015)

"If, as he has suggested, "Spectre" is Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond, then it is a very snappy send-off, indeed." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press

Room (2015)

"If you've already read the book, you may not like the movie quite as much, but I bet you'll enjoy seeing a faithful re-telling. And if you haven't yet read the book, the movie should whet your appetite for that beautifully told tale." ‐St. Paul Pioneer Press
