Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

"...comes across less as an opportunity to squeeze every last dollar out of the franchise and more like Rowling has many more stories to tell... " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016)

"It's all as misguided as the special filming process utilized by director Ang Lee who shot this at 120 frames per second which most audiences will never get to see. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Doctor Strange (2016)

"Through outstanding casting, splashy visuals, and some unexpected (and welcome) wit, [this] is easily the best of comic book movie of the year." ‐New England Movies Weekly

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

"[I]n its point of view and the story it tells, it is worthy addition to the list of movies spotlighting American history. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

The Girl on the Train (2016)

Deepwater Horizon (2016)

"The directing and editing gives us no sense of the space. It's never clear where characters are in relation to each other and, often, in relation to the action. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

4/5 63%

Snowden (2016)

"The weight of the film, though, is on Gordon-Levitt and Woodley and these are easily two of the best performances of the year." ‐New England Movies Weekly

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

"The result is less a date night movie than one better suited for "girl's night out." " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Sully (2016)

"The real drama here is that of an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances and finding he is prepared to meet the challenge. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Morgan (2016)

"Morgan is the flip side of Ex Machina... making it part of a lively debate rather than the "ripoff" or "clone" that some critics will inevitably claim." ‐New England Movies Weekly

Don't Breathe (2016)

"...an adrenaline rush of a film, a taut 88-minute thrill ride. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

"Even in a year that has seen some creative and entertaining animated films, Kubo and the Two Strings would be a standout. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

War Dogs (2016)

"By treating this is as a caper movie, it provides the requisite action and laughs. Yet it glosses over the actual impact of our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan..." ‐New England Movies Weekly

Ben-Hur (2016)

"If you want to know why this new Ben-Hur is dead on arrival here's the answer in a nutshell: Hollywood no longer knows how to do period epics." ‐New England Movies Weekly

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

Sausage Party (2016)

"Just when you think this surreal world can't surprise you any longer, it comes up with something else that may make you gasp or wince but will most likely make you laugh. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Suicide Squad (2016)

"What does writer/director David Ayer do with all this? He gives us extended fight scenes... What he does not do is give us any reason to care about the results. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Jason Bourne (2016)

"One would think that after more than a century of cinematic car chases we would have seen it all, but Greengrass and company have a few tricks up their sleeves. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Nerve (2016)

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"Longtime fans will remember that there used to be a rule of thumb about the movies: the "even ones" were the good ones. Now it looks like it will be look for the "odd ones." " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Ghostbusters (2016)

"There's no getting around how inadequate Wiig and McCarthy are. The breakout here is SNL star McKinnon, who needs co-stars who could keep up with her. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

The Purge: Election Year (2016)

"While providing surreal action and food for thought, one other point needs to be made: this is a movie in which the black and white characters are part of an ensemble. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

"Well, it's not as bad as the 2013 reboot of The Lone Ranger." ‐New England Movies Weekly

The BFG (2016)

"[It] will undoubtedly find an audience, but that doesn't mean that the rest of us have to pretend this giant is less big and friendly than boring and flat. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Free State of Jones (2016)

"With its epic sweep and powerful performances shedding light on a little-known chapter of American history, this would have seemed like prime Oscar bait for an autumn release. " ‐New England Movies Weekly

Finding Dory (2016)

"...a solid effort and a nice comeback from last year's The Good Dinosaur, but this is not the best American animated feature we've seen this year." ‐New England Movies Weekly

Central Intelligence (2016)

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

Me Before You (2016)

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

"It has very little to do with the novel by Lewis Carroll. Indeed, it's so bizarre and different that you may feel you've gone through the looking glass yourself." ‐New England Movies Weekly

2.5/5 48%

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
