A minus 63% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "Break out the Bolly and caviar, darlings. Welcome back, Eddie and Patsy. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 22, 2016
A minus 74% Café Society (2016) "A sweet retro-romance set mostly in old-time Hollywood. Cast is marvelous. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 22, 2016
C plus 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Generic plot, meaningless action, overdone CGI, forgettable villain. The camaraderie of the first of the three in short supply. Only Karl Urban scores. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 22, 2016
A 93% Life, Animated (2016) "Remarkable doc account of functioning autistic man, whose childhood passion for Disney animated films was his and his family's salvation. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
B plus 68% The Infiltrator (2016) "Scorsese-like, but not quite there. Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, Amy Ryan and the rest of the cast are terrific. The direction flags too frequently. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
B plus 77% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Mortensen is the reason to see this, Langella, too. Dig the contemporary "Swiss Family Robinson" vibe. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
C plus 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "Not terrible, but utterly uninspired. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 15, 2016
A minus 88% Zero Days (2016) "Another piece of investigative-journalism cinema from Alex Gibney. Talky and too long, but also terrifying and gripping. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 8, 2016
B plus 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "Toy Story with pets. Improves dramatically when Kevin Hart, Albert Brooks and Steve Coogan show up. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jul 8, 2016
B 51% The Neon Demon (2016) "A sensuous guilty pleasure to be sure, but David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr." is so much better. "No hay banda." " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 24, 2016
C minus 43% Free State of Jones (2016) "McConaughey unleashes that thousand-yard stare, and we wait for someone to say, "I am Spartacus." A misguided misfire. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 24, 2016
B minus 63% Therapy for a Vampire (Der Vampir auf der Couch) (2016) "Nice production values and gore scenes, but too familiar and ultimately toothless. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 24, 2016
A minus 81% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) "A unique, Gaza-shot, real-life, coming of age tale from Hany Abu-Assad. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
C minus 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Some nice touches, but way too long and derivative. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
A minus 89% Dheepan (2016) "Jacques Audiard's gripping refugee tale has a Charles Bronson-like lead character from Sri Lanka and a great performance from Jesuthasan Antonythasan. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
D 29% Warcraft (2016) "A CG hot mess. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Jun 10, 2016
C plus 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "Another CG 3D slog. Helena Bonham Carter is one of the film's few virtues. Why Does S.B. Cohen's Time sound like Werner Herzog? " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 27, 2016
B 96% Weiner (2016) "But if you've seen one Weiner... A rehash of unpleasant people and events. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 27, 2016
C plus 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Yet another superhero movie disappointment. Uninspired, thoroughly routine, seen this before-itis. Boring villain. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 27, 2016
C minus 90% The Lobster (2016) "This is proof that you can be uniquely offbeat and utterly boring and nonsensical, too. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 20, 2016
B plus 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "Crowe and Gosling have mismatched-buddy chemistry to burn. Black riffs on LA Confidential, 48HRs and his own Lethal Weapon script. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 20, 2016
C 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "Another sequel no one wanted. " ‐ Boston Herald

Posted May 13, 2016

Posted May 13, 2016
B plus 63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "It is, overall, a fitting tribute to a man from Madras who became a Fellow of the Royal Society, foreshadowed Albert Einstein and is rightfully considered one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever produced. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 6, 2016
B 84% The Meddler (2016) "Sarandon is great. But the film is a pilot for a TV sitcom. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 6, 2016
B minus 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "Not as bad as Batman v. Superman. But way too long and dumb. Who believes they are out to kill one another? " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted May 6, 2016
B 61% Dough (2016) "Pryce and Holder have a nice mismatched father-son vibe as the curmudgeonly baking whiz and rascal apprentice, respectively, and Davis is fun as the hissable villain of the piece. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 29, 2016
A minus 100% Older Than Ireland (2016) "Another Irish cultural gem from Alex Fegan of The Irish Pub. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
A minus 91% Green Room (2016) "Blue Ruin, Green Room? They're both bloodbaths. Jeremy Saulnier is breakout splatter-movie auteur. Stewart is terrifying. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
D plus 16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "Let it go. Really. Mediocre, derivative unnecessary sequel. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
A 97% Sing Street (2016) "Another marvelous movie-music hybrid from Dublin auteur John Carney. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
B plus 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Lightweight, but worth seeing for Spacey and Shannon. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 22, 2016
B plus 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) "Combine "Black-ish" with "Straight Outta Compton" and voila. A "Barbershop" movie for Obama-era America. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016
A minus 97% The Dark Horse (2016) "If there were any justice in the Academy Awards, Curtis would be a front runner for Best Actor for this "Raging Bull"-level performance. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016
A minus 94% The Jungle Book (2016) "Tyger, Tyger, burning bright indeed. Elba's voice work is one for the ages. Marvelously cast and visually lush. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 15, 2016

Posted Apr 8, 2016
B 70% Take Me To The River (2016) "Yet another dysfunctional family drama indie film, writer-director Matt Sobel's Take Me to the River has its flaws. But on the whole, this is an impressive feature debut. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 7, 2016
C plus 83% Midnight Special (2016) "Close Encounters of the Spielberg Kind. Big build up to disappointing ending. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 1, 2016
B plus 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Standard biopic stuff, but strong cast. Loki can sing (and play). " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 1, 2016
A 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Dazed and Confused meets Before Sunrise, an Animal House for a new generation. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Apr 1, 2016
B plus 62% Creative Control (2016) "Better and a lot sexier than "Ex Machina" and "Her." Virtual reality sex thriller is a fun Brooklyn-hipster ride. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
B plus 71% Remember (2016) "A diabolically clever, geriatric "Memento" set up, magnificent cast. Slight let down at the end. Plummer outstanding. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
A 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Game of Drones, indeed. Excellent ensemble cast, nerve-shattering, technological high-wire act. Mirren, Rickman (sigh) and Abdi in top form. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
D 13% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "The worst in a bad and derivative series. Is the next one Abhorrent? " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 18, 2016
B minus 46% Knight of Cups (2016) "Another Malick trip down the rabbit hole. Not unpleasant, just hollow and superficial. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 11, 2016
D 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Derivative, risible, paltry. Bring back M. Night Shyamalan, all is forgiven. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 11, 2016
B plus 80% The Wave (Bolgen) (2016) "Nifty Norwegian disaster movie. " ‐ Boston Herald
Posted Mar 4, 2016
B minus 26% London Has Fallen (2016) "Not as good as Olympus, and too much like Paris, but Butler is still fun to watch. " ‐ Boston Herald
