Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016)

"Huppert's performance here won't keep you on the edge of your seat as in "Elle". but Hansen-Love wrote "Things To Come" with her in mind, and she could not have asked for a better outcome." Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Allied (2016)

"A truly romantic love story against the backdrop of World War II. "Allied" may not be considered perfect, but it's a wonderful example of the way movies used to be made. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

A Street Cat Named Bob (2016)

Rules Don't Apply (2016)

Doctor Strange (2016)

"Yes, we've seen remarkable special effects in the past, but the visual effects provided by Industrial Light & Magic and Luma Pictures are, well, magical. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The Eagle Huntress (2016)

"Yes, awards and recognition for your efforts are great, but the most important aspect of Aisholpan's feat is her own feeling of self-satisfaction knowing what she has accomplished, " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"There is nothing new --- just the same high-octane chase scenes and overtly violent battles." Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The Accountant (2016)

""The Accountant" is entertaining enough. I enjoyed the characters and storyline and particularly liked the ending, which I found endearing rather than false in its efforts." Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The Girl on the Train (2016)

""The Girl on the Train" is saved solely by Blunt's superior portrayal. It is by no means better than the book, but it is worth a look." Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"To write that Streep is magnificent would be an understatement. She's as good as she has ever been --- no one can out-nuance her. She holds the screen like no other actor, and she brings Florence to life with a joyful, bigger-than-life verve. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Jason Bourne (2016)

"Though "Jason Bourne" is well-acted, sporting a terrific cast, it's just another in a long line of supposed "thrillers" that just don't possess that certain excitement any more. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Life, Animated (2016)

"The ultimate pinnacle of "Life, Animated" comes when Owen gives a brilliant speech at a conference on autism in France. If this doesn't move you, you cannot have a heart. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

"I can report that it is very sweet and funny --- perhaps not completely endearing, but good enough that you will want to round up the kids and get to a movie theater pronto. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Swiss Army Man (2016)

"Fantastical, offbeat and far-out are not necessarily a good or bad thing. Daniels have proven that they can think outside the box --- and that's a great thing. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Me Before You (2016)

""Me Before You" is a chaste love story, a true rarity these days. It's a film you can see with the entire family, and one that you can watch --- and will be watching --- over and over again. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Weiner (2016)

The Nice Guys (2016)

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"My biggest complaint --- and one I'm weary of repeating --- is the habit of such films to include massive carnage by bombings, guns, car chases, etc. "Captain America: Civil War" would have been every bit as entertaining without this excessive violence. " Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Miles Ahead (2016)

The Boss (2016)

"I love McCarthy --- I strongly believe she's better than this. If you really want to laugh, find "Spy" from last year. It's a much better film." Kaplan vs. Kaplan
