82% Sausage Party (2016) "The South Park movie made the same point nearly 20 years ago, but nothing's changed, so why not say it again? " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Sep 11, 2016
98% Hell or High Water (2016) "A contemporary Western, [which] like the best of them, is concerned with the moral character of the frontier, and whether the lawless and the righteous have a foot in each other's territory. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Sep 11, 2016
61% War Dogs (2016) "Watching Hill drive guns into Baghdad destroys the last crumbling pillars of the "good war" concept. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Aug 29, 2016
54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "The purge is nothing but a satirical exaggeration of the US second amendment. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Aug 29, 2016

Posted Aug 21, 2016
77% The Shallows (2016) "A one dimensional affair that starts with its central tussle and works backwards, equipping its heroine with all the necessary skills and lucky breaks she requires to defeat her foe. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Aug 14, 2016
35% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "Something happened to this reviewer during Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. One day I hope to understand what it was. " ‐ The Ooh Tray

Posted Aug 6, 2016
56% Jason Bourne (2016) "What takes the edge off... is a sense of familiarity; the franchise going through the motions, beat for beat. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jul 31, 2016
75% The BFG (2016) "There's an uncanny sweetness to the whole thing, a very synthetic kind of charm. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jul 25, 2016
83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Safe plays well enough, but didn't Jean-Luc Picard once remind us that the sky's the limit? " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jul 23, 2016
53% The Neon Demon (2016) "Refn goes to places that other filmmakers would reject on grounds of taste, morality and commercial appeal. It's meaty cinema. Sadly, unfashionable in this day and age. " ‐ The Ooh Tray

78% Where to Invade Next (2016) "[Moore's] coined a peach of a soundbite that sums up his approach - "I'm here to pick the flowers not the weeds". If WTIN feels like his most complete film in a while, it's because he's cannily adopted a conceit that makes a virtue of this historic flaw. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jun 14, 2016
92% The Nice Guys (2016) "Cartoon pulp. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jun 11, 2016

Posted May 16, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "A remarkably coherent and tightly focused affair that by virtue of clarity and concision, manages to keep all its ducks in a row while providing both the movies billed, i.e. the sequel to Winter Soldier and the Avengers' civil war. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted May 1, 2016

Posted Apr 22, 2016
No Score Yet Space Cop (2016) "The kind of movie you used to make in your friend's house when their parents were away, meeting their secret second families. " ‐ The Ooh Tray

85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Embrace the movies, says this movie about old movies, and know that the industry and its popular myths are the 20th century's totems, and that to be the bag man for the studio in such an era, was to be as close to godliness as is possible. " ‐ The Ooh Tray

Posted Jan 17, 2016
82% The Revenant (2015) "Iñárritu's camera floats around, God-like, recording the mauled man's plight dispassionately. The effect is meditative but more pronounced in the movie's moments of harsh reality. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
Posted Jan 17, 2016
88% The Big Short (2015) "A movie with a conscience but no heroes...it concentrates on delivering the facts with mock sobriety and a sense of the absurd. " ‐ The Ooh Tray
