2.5/4 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) ""Star Trek Beyond" is not a stale rehash ... But it is another case of an aging franchise running short of good individual films, even when it pursues an alternate timeline. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3.5/4 75% CafĂ© Society (2016) "Stewart is irresistible here. Allen is a legendary director of women, and Stewart's performance is shockingly good, awards-caliber work. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/4 90% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) "It's a good reminder, or introduction, for a multi-talent like no other. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 77% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Ross keeps a fine balance of comedy and chagrin here, paralleling Ben's own narrow sense of humor. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "The colorful new version isn't unfaithful to the source material's mythology. It's a fun, true-blue update of a classic. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 99% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) ""Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is the kind of adorable, coming-of-age dramedy that Pixar would proudly create if it made live-action movies and not cartoons. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 68% The Infiltrator (2016) "How can a blood-soaked crime story take all the elements of classic neo-noir thrillers and become a perfect storm of tedium? " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 12, 2016
3.5/4 88% Zero Days (2016) "Still worried about old-school nuclear weapons? Enter the 21st century, and prepare for some brand-new nightmares. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 7, 2016
4/4 84% The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble (2016) "Ma's project and Neville's film celebrate the joy that can be achieved when people put aside their regional differences to create something joyous. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3.5/4 91% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) "Starring, directed, filmed and written by women, balancing agnostic intelligence and respect, this is one of the most compelling films about war in years. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/4 39% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "It's asinine in an almost irresistible way. The film has an unapologetically dirty mind, except when it seems to have no mind at all, which is frequent. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 7, 2016
2.5/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "It's not a bad cartoon. There's not much here that you wish you could fast-forward through. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 7, 2016
1.5/4 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) ""Independence Day: Resurgence" is a dull, brainless sequel, representing how sadly major studio film quality has declined in the intervening two decades. And how gullible the makers think audiences have become. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jul 6, 2016
2/4 70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "In the past I've respected but not enjoyed Le CarrĂ© films, which are overly abstract; this one I enjoyed scarcely at all. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3/4 72% Wiener-Dog (2016) "A four-part sick joke from cinema's dean of depressive, coldhearted humor, Todd Solondz. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016

Posted Jun 30, 2016
3/4 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "Some thrillers scare us, really effective ones upset us. While the craft of "The Purge: Election Year" is amateurish, the film is almost eerily well timed. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/4 65% Swiss Army Man (2016) "If you can't remember the title for this film at the box office, ask for "the farting corpse movie." Or, if offbeat bad taste isn't your must-see, take my advice and skip the hot mess altogether. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2.5/4 73% The BFG (2016) "It all adds up to fine family fare, and surely fun-packed excitement for kids. But it left me feeling that Spielberg at this point in his life and career is better at thoughtful, history-based adult material. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/4 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "The saga doesn't tell a coherent story so much as juggle tropes, images and archetypes from earlier, more enjoyable adaptations. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3.5/4 89% Art Bastard (2016) "The secret sauce of this delicious romp is the joy of hanging out with a delightfully unruly rebel with a paintbrush. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 23, 2016
3/4 95% De Palma (2016) "De Palma remains a focused and productive filmmaker at 75, with several productions in the development pipeline. "De Palma" makes one hope that he'll keep up the pace for years to come. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2/4 67% The Last King (2016) "It's an iconic tale for Norwegians and the inspiration of the annual Birkebeiner ski race, but a dud with scant dramatic zing or star quality. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 16, 2016
1.5/4 49% Genius (2016) "It ultimately leaves you cold, empty and aware of why stories about literary life make uninteresting movies. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 16, 2016
66% Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016) "Few films have the power to manipulate, engage, play and discombobulate the audience this well. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 16, 2016
2/4 68% Central Intelligence (2016) "Johnson and Hart are performers of trustworthy charisma, but their personal appeal hits its limits when they are recruited to perform in a film that is hard to sit through. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 16, 2016
4/4 95% Finding Dory (2016) "There's a big undersea world out there in Finding Dory, one that's endlessly diverse and consistently beautiful. Not only in its dazzling photorealist images, but in the story's creative depth. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 15, 2016

Posted Jun 9, 2016
1.5/4 29% Warcraft (2016) ""Warcraft" is presented as the opening chapter in a franchise, but already I feel it's time to move on. We're done here. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Posted Jun 9, 2016
3.5/4 100% Dragon Inn (Long men ke zhen) "You get the feeling that Quentin Tarantino drew a lot of the "Kill Bill" movies and "The Hateful 8" from this textbook; it's clearly the goofy ancestor of Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted Jun 9, 2016

4/4 90% The Lobster (2016) "This kind of art is not on many people's wavelength, but those who connect to it will remember it 20, 30, 40 years later. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Posted May 19, 2016
3/4 65% The Wait (L'attesa) (2016) "The story is minimal, but the imagery - and the hypnotic Binoche - are masterful. " ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
Posted May 12, 2016
