51% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) While parents may miss the second-level smarts of its predecessors, kids should fall right into the fun.‐ TheWrap

72% Dayveon (2017) Abbasi has elicited outstanding performances from his entirely-amateur cast, who infuse both authenticity and professionalism into their roles. And it's impossible to remain unmoved by the many contrasts he carefully arranges.‐ TheWrap

83% The Final Year (2017) Under the current circumstances, Barker has given us a film with much broader appeal, one that's not only absorbing but also essential in its depiction of humane, responsible leadership.‐ TheWrap

83% Patti Cake$ (2017) The description makes Patti Cake$ sound like a pretty typical Sundance crowd pleaser. Which, technically, it is. But what sets it apart from other overpraised festival indies is its tremendously gifted lead.‐ TheWrap

33% Chronically Metropolitan (2017) The best way to watch is to think of it as a parody of a particularly pretentious brand of indie romance. Unfortunately, director Xavier Manrique and writer Nicholas Schutt play it so solemnly straight that it seems unlikely they're aiming for satire.‐ TheWrap

78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) It's all fascinating and terrifying and inspiring and essential. And at each stop, we're left wanting to know more.‐ TheWrap

89% Girls Trip (2017) We're in it for the ride, the company, and the pure pleasure of watching these women, and the actresses playing them, embrace an independence Hollywood doles out too grudgingly.‐ TheWrap

46% Rough Night (2017) Yes, it'll remind you of countless other movies, from Weekend at Bernie's and Very Bad Things to Bachelorette and Bridesmaids. But if you take it on its own merits, you may wind up glad you saw it.‐ Culture Trip

89% Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press (2017) Its intentions are ultimately stronger than its execution, but you're likely to pay a lot more attention to White House press briefings after watching it.‐ TheWrap

36% Snatched (2017) The Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn dream team deserved a better Mother's Day outing than Snatched.‐ Culture Trip

92% Wonder Woman (2017) Jenkins and screenwriter Allan Heinberg have created an unassailable icon, one who fits into the pantheon with ease, and stands out like no other.‐ Culture Trip

75% The Incomparable Rose Hartman (2017) Mass makes good use of Hartman's archival images, keeping things flowing with a steady stream of glittery nostalgia. But what's especially interesting is the striking ambivalence of her peers. ‐ TheWrap

84% Megan Leavey (2017) The filmmakers use the same restrained patience to build a touching connection between Megan and Rex. Soon, it seems perfectly reasonable that an emotionally isolated soldier would consider a German shepherd to be her one true soul mate.‐ TheWrap

55% Lowriders (2017) Mexican-American culture isn't merely draped over the story as an added element but woven throughout with a casual practicality that respects both the primary characters and their shot-on-location East L.A. setting.‐ TheWrap

3/4 73% The Housemaid (2011) Im Sang-soo can't improve on Kim Ki-young's 1960 original, a jaIm Sang-soo can't improve on Kim Ki-young's 1960 original, a jarring and operatic cult favorite. Still, he does tweak the themes in intriguing fashion.‐ New York Daily News

2/4 68% Mumbai Diaries (2011) Nearly every element of Rao's debut is uneven. But her passionate vision of so much useless prejudice leaves a lingering impact.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 63% All The Wilderness (2015) First-time writer/director Michael Johnson falls back on coming-of-age clichés. But overall, his sensitive, moody camerawork and the cast's strong performances go a long way toward making the familiar feel fresh.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 79% Queen and Country (2015) It works, but not entirely.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 72% The DUFF (2015) Most of the credit goes to Whitman, who stands in, and stands up, for the DUFF in all of us.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 64% The Rewrite (2015) The title of this Hugh Grant romantic dramedy feels like a challenge, so we'll bite: The performances are strong, but a rewrite - or two - was definitely in order.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) The violence flies repellently over the top, and the finale features an extended joke so insanely sexist it sends us out on a seriously sour note.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 59% The Last 5 Years (2015) Stars Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan are earnest and often appealing in "The Last Five Years," even if the musical romance never completely finds its footing.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) Johnson is a true find: She's so committed, she makes Ana's every discovery - in or out of the bedroom - convincing.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 80% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) The spirit of the series remains true: cheerfully random jokes, blink-and-you'll-miss-them references and, above all, a silly, stubbornly sentimental streak that only the crabbiest cynic could dismiss.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 5% Outcast (2015) Given the state of Nicolas Cage's résumé, it's faint praise to say this samurai tale is slightly better than most of his recent movies.‐ New York Daily News

1/5 36% Lovesick (2014) Matt LeBlanc is so great on Showtime's "Episodes" that it's both baffling and depressing to imagine that this soulless rom-com was the best big-screen project available to him.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 86% Ballet 422 (2015) For dance fans, any glimpse of the New York City Ballet's inner workings is welcome. Ultimately, though, this observational documentary from Jody Lee Lipes feels too much like an exercise in form over function.‐ New York Daily News

1/5 32% Wild Card (2015) Does the curdled thriller "Wild Card" represent a brief misstep? Or is this the moment when Jason Statham, like so many action heroes before him, settles into self-caricature?‐ New York Daily News

2/5 69% Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of (2015) Every time the film inches into compelling territory, the band backs away to avoid offending anyone.‐ New York Daily News

0/5 12% Mortdecai (2015) Johnny Depp has done so much for us. Let us now return the favor and pretend "Mortdecai," a disastrously misjudged career low, never existed.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 34% Song One (2015) It all seems like low-key riffing, rather than a movie that makes any cohesive statement.‐ New York Daily News

1/5 51% The Humbling (2015) With all the talent on tap - including screenwriter Buck Henry, who worked with Michal Zebede to adapt Philip Roth's 2009 novel - you'd think we'd get something better than this outdated indulgence.‐ New York Daily News

1/5 27% We'll Never Have Paris (2015) The danger in writing, directing, producing and casting yourself in the same movie is that there's no one to pull you back from the cliff.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 63% Son of a Gun (2015) First-time director Julius Avery plays the action by the book. None of the plot twists - from the central heist to a distracting romance - is particularly persuasive.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 75% Match (2015) One of the great delights of low-budget indies like "Match" is the freedom they offer high-wattage stars like Patrick Stewart, who gets to chew some serious scenery here.‐ New York Daily News

0/5 4% Vice (2015) Here's hoping Bruce Willis bought something special with whatever cash he earned from this pointless, brutally ugly rehash of 1973's "Westworld."‐ New York Daily News

2/5 31% Loitering With Intent (2015) The title may suggest acts of indecency, but if there's anything this mild dramedy could use, it's a little more raciness.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2015
2/5 63% The World Made Straight (2015) A palpable sense of environment and strong performances from Noah Wyle and musician Steve Earle can't balance the extensive flaws in this unconvincing Appalachian melodrama.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 71% Beloved Sisters (2015) The movie is gorgeous, awash in lavish costumes and stunningly detailed sets. But it's merely a wash thematically, leaving us with 170 minutes (!) of unabashedly grandiose fan fiction.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Jan 7, 2015
2/5 25% Black November (2015) Basinger, Rourke, Anne Heche, Vivica A. Fox, Akon and Wyclef Jean all appear lost or disengaged in bit parts that give a B-movie feel to a political passion project.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 72% American Sniper (2015) The best movies are ever-shifting, intelligent and open-hearted enough to expand alongside an audience. "American Sniper," Clint Eastwood's harrowing meditation on war, is built on this foundation of uncommon compassion.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 46% The Gambler (2014) Whether Wahlberg's been miscast or misdirected, we never buy him as a desperate addict. Still, the movie is so quick and cool that for much of the time, we barely notice how little is actually at stake.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2014
3/5 71% Into the Woods (2014) The life lessons are delivered with insight and heart, the rightfully beloved music is well handled and the cast is so enthusiastic that we can excuse some rough patches.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 71% Big Eyes (2014) "Big Eyes" is still a compelling film, well presented and solidly performed by leads Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. But more weirdness would have done wonders.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 18, 2014
3/5 62% Goodbye to All That (2014) Despite its flaws, the first feature from "Junebug" writer Angus MacLachlan is a heartfelt, bittersweet and often amusing portrait of early middle-age.‐ New York Daily News

2/5 27% Annie (2014) For all the talent involved, the overall effect is surprisingly flat. Foxx appears disconnected, Byrne is wasted and a painfully hammy Diaz seems to be in another movie altogether.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 97% Mr. Turner (2014) Leigh and lead Timothy Spall make full use of their canvas, creating a sprawling portrayal of a wonderfully messy personality.‐ New York Daily News

3/5 45% Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks (2014) Seidelman lacquers this predictable plot with a sitcommish sheen, but that's where we see the value of great casting.‐ New York Daily News

4/5 74% Inherent Vice (2015) Phoenix's extraordinary performance pulls the movie's infinite strands together. But this twisty tale takes so many foggy turns that you'll want to approach it with a plan.‐ New York Daily News
Read More | Posted Dec 10, 2014
1/5 18% Free the Nipple (2014) The movie is so tone deaf, and travels so far from its original feminist ideals, that it's painful to watch.‐ New York Daily News
