2.5/4 24% Unforgettable (2017) Slick, glossy and radiating juicy villainy, it knows exactly what kind of movie it is and goes for it with giddy abandon.‐

3/4 86% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) In Richard Gere's deft, veteran hands, Norman Oppenheimer is consistently, completely fascinating. You may not be able to root for him, but you can't help but feel for him.‐

2.5/4 45% Going in Style (2017) Its stars are such pros, they're so enormously charismatic and have such lovely chemistry with each other, it's hard not to be charmed by their mere presence on screen.‐

3/4 62% Carrie Pilby (2017) As the title character, Bel Powley is so enormously compelling that she breathes life into Carrie's quirks and the story's contrivances.‐

2/4 78% T2 Trainspotting (2017) An opportunity to wallow in grimy nostalgia seems to be its sole purpose.‐

2.5/4 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) A film that's well-acted but tastefully restrained to a fault, with gentle humor about aging and a central mystery that isn't all that engaging.‐

3.5/4 90% Raw (2017) Ducournau's lurid, vivid film is visually striking, full of images that will shock you while others will lull you with a hypnotic beauty.‐

3.5/4 69% As You Are (2017) Joris-Peyrafitte shows confidence and talent beyond his years, with an artful eye for imagery and a truthful ear for dialogue.‐

2.5/4 72% XX (2017) If XX is trying to make some sort of statement, it's not doing so with much clarity or power.‐

2.5/4 83% A United Kingdom (2017) A United Kingdom is well made and well-intentioned. But Asante is also saddled with a script from Guy Hibbert that spells out everything for the audience.‐

1.5/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) The twists are just unbearably ridiculous, which drains all the power out of their supposed catharsis.‐

3/4 75% Split (2017) A rare, straight-up horror film from Shyamalan, Split is a thrilling reminder of what a technical master he can be.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2017
1/4 0% The Book Of Love (2017) Filled with contrivances, false emotions and even flimsier accents, it strains mightily to tug at our heartstrings while also enticing us with whimsy, and fails on both fronts.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
2.5/4 93% I, Daniel Blake (2017) I, Daniel Blake is an extremely Ken Loach-y Ken Loach film, for better and for worse.‐

1.5/4 40% Why Him? (2016) After an increasing cavalcade of flatly crass visual gags featuring high-tech toilets, moose urine and poorly-timed sexual shenanigans, Why Him? collapses the way so many R-rated comedies do.‐

3/4 86% Two Lovers and a Bear (2016) Beautiful and thoroughly unpredictable; you never know where Nguyen is going with this story, including the chilling, sci-fi/horror direction he heads in toward the film's climax.‐

3.5/4 96% Moana (2016) Moana would have been enormously entertaining regardless of when it came out, but its arrival at this particular moment in history gives it an added sense of significance-as well as inspiration.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 22, 2016
3.5/4 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The Edge of Seventeen is a delight, with Hailee Steinfeld serving as the radiant star at its center.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
1/4 0% My Dead Boyfriend (2016) A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
3/4 84% The Ivory Game (2016) A documentary that plays with the gripping pacing and glossy production values of a suspenseful, international thriller.‐
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
2/4 19% Inferno (2016) The multiple twists, double-crosses and leaps in logic are more likely to prompt giggles than gasps.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 27, 2016
.5/4 0% Max Steel (2016) A movie based on a toy should be a whole lot more fun than this.‐

3.5/4 97% Aquarius (2016) It may feel like it drags a bit in the middle, but Aquarius has so many individual moments of grace that it rewards you for sticking around.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
1.5/4 44% The Girl on the Train (2016) A flat and suspense-free tale of pretty people in peril.‐
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
1.5/4 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) The latest from Tim Burton would seem tailor-made for his tastes but it's a convoluted slog, dense in mythology and explanatory dialogue but woefully lacking in thrills.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/4 63% Storks (2016) Zippy and zany, cute and cuddly, Storks manages to balance wild humor with winning heart-for the most part.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
3/4 88% Other People (2016) "Other People" breathes new life into the formulaic, dark comedy about death.‐
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2016
2.5/4 40% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) Either you'll be willing to go with some of its wilder visual conceits or you won't. (I was, for the most part.)‐

2/4 45% Hands of Stone (2016) In trying to encompass way too much, Hands of Stone ends up feeling superficial and unsatisfying.‐
Read More | Posted Aug 26, 2016
3.5/4 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) It's a classic hero's journey full of action and adventure, but it's also an intimate fable about love and loss, magic and memory.‐

2.5/4 79% Joshy (2016) You probably wouldn't want to spend that much time with these people yourself, but at least they're never boring.‐

2/4 11% Nine Lives (2016) It's not that Nine Lives is terrible. It's just that it's not terrible enough.‐

1.5/4 25% Suicide Squad (2016) It's massive, messy and noisy. And it stinks.‐

3/4 58% Bad Moms (2016) Even when things soften and turn sweet toward the end-including an unexpectedly emotional segment during the closing credits that I will not spoil for you-Bad Moms retains an appealing wrongness. ‐

3/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) It is an incredibly simple yet irresistible idea for a movie. It's also exactly what you think it's going to be - no more, no less.‐
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
1.5/4 35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) It hammers us over the head with the same handful of jokes in the hopes of beating us into submission. And it strains the screen appeal of a group of actors who normally are enormously likable.‐

3/4 93% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) Veteran French director Anne Fontaine approaches a spiritually and emotionally complex real-life slice of history with deftness and understated drama in "The Innocents."‐

3/4 94% Finding Dory (2016) It's gorgeous. It's lively. It's got terrific performances from a strong voice cast. It's emotionally affecting without being heavy-handed.‐

1.5/4 31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) It's just dull and hollow-a massive waste of time and money.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 24, 2016
.5/4 5% The Do-Over (2016) Typical Adam Sandler fare in every way, from the raunchy humor to the inclusion of his buddies to the deplorable view of women to the vacation disguised as a movie shoot to the forced sentimentality in the final act.‐

2.5/4 66% Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2016) Husson captures the restless rhythms of adolescence-the push-pull of angst and boredom, of self-consciousness and the yearning to lose oneself completely.‐

0.5/4 28% Warcraft (2016) Easily a contender for the worst movie of the year.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2016
1/4 0% Urge (2016) A movie that's as empty and unlikable as the characters themselves.‐
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
3/4 72% The Ones Below (2016) Even as events turn more than a tad preposterous with twists that seem not just predictable but inevitable, Farr keeps a handle on the tension and tone, which keeps us hooked.‐

2/4 86% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) The musical elements of the film aren't even the most compelling parts. They're actually surprisingly cheesy.‐

2.5/4 85% Maggie's Plan (2016) Miller offers a vivid snapshot of a niche segment of New York. ... She truly gets the city's rhythms and idiosyncrasies, and her dialogue frequently sparkles.‐

2.5/4 57% Money Monster (2016) Jodie Foster has directed a real-time drama that's lean, efficient and benefits from the enormous charisma of George Clooney in the starring role as a slick, smug financial pundit.‐
Read More | Posted May 13, 2016
3.5/4 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) The fact that a Marvel movie dares to question the big, shiny spectacle that is its bread and butter - and acknowledge that untold thousands die in the name of entertainment - seems rather novel. ‐
Read More | Posted May 11, 2016
3/4 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) Simultaneously lush and lurid, sumptuous and startling, "A Bigger Splash" never goes where you expect, even as its undercurrent of danger is unmistakable from the start.‐
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
.5/4 7% Mother's Day (2016) Mother's Day might be trying to show how diverse and progressive it is in representing every kind of family, but it's a laugh track away from Three's Company levels of subterfuge.‐
