Nerve (2016)

"This lightweight thriller for the new millennium is flashy, with decent, likable characters and adrenaline-fueled thrills, even if it grows ever more implausible and ultimately disposable. " ‐Common Sense Media

Jason Bourne (2016)

"The only one who actually seemed to care is Tony Gilroy, who wrote or co-wrote the four previous movies (and directed the fourth). He didn't even show up for this dud. Now that was a smart move." San Francisco Examiner

Don't Think Twice (2016)

"Appealingly rich and cluttered, as well as fascinating and funny." Combustible Celluloid

Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016)

"Michel Gondry's coming-of-age road movie Microbe and Gasoline is, surprisingly, his best film since Be Kind Rewind, or even Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. " Combustible Celluloid

Tallulah (2016)

"This Netflix original film falls into the old "weepie/women's picture" category, but it stays stubbornly rooted in characters and moments. " Combustible Celluloid

Sausage Party (2016)

"This animated comedy is decidedly not for kids; it's rambunctiously filthy in more ways than one. And while it's not exactly hilarious, it's at least consistently amusing and has a positive attitude. " ‐Common Sense Media

Pete's Dragon (2016)

"A gentle, whimsical tale, focusing on wonder in an age when most kids' movies focus on noise and movement. " Combustible Celluloid

Blood Father (2016)

"This well-made action-chase movie could have easily fallen apart along its well-worn story grooves, but nifty characters and electric dialogue, along with intense action, keep it alive. " ‐Common Sense Media

War Dogs (2016)

"Gleefully irreverent, and with a so-crazy-it-must-be-true vibe, this exuberant comedy manages to be wildly entertaining while simultaneously finding alarming cracks in the fabric of American society. " Combustible Celluloid

2/5 66%

Anthropoid (2016)

"There are many important WWII stories worth telling, but sometimes movies, like this one, take the wrong approach, and we end up with something that's poorly made, tedious, and depressing. " ‐Common Sense Media

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016)

"This documentary is one of Herzog's best; it's thoughtful yet entertaining, amusing yet heartbreaking, and sometimes simply beautiful. " ‐Common Sense Media

Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

"Kubo and the Two Strings champions the pure pleasure and power of storytelling; it's simple, but spectacular. " Combustible Celluloid

Imperium (2016)

"Daniel Ragussis' debut feature is better at being suspenseful than it is at being socially relevant; but at the same time, it has moments in which it terrifies and inspires despair and dread. " ‐Common Sense Media

Don't Breathe (2016)

"The first three-quarters of this simple, intense thriller are something close to masterful -- and then it goes a little too over the top, with an outlandish reveal and elements of torture and gore. " ‐Common Sense Media

Hell or High Water (2016)

""Hell or High Water" is a great genre picture: film noir cannily combined with a Western, but with a modern-day setting." San Francisco Examiner

Suicide Squad (2016)

"At some point, with Smith and Robbie getting most of the screen time, this team was supposed to jell and form a unit whose members depend on one another. Frankly, they don't. " Combustible Celluloid

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"The 13th overall movie in the Star Trek franchise turns out to be good luck for everyone. It's a fresh, satisfying return to the beloved characters of the 1966-1969 TV series and to a rousing sense of teamwork. " ‐Common Sense Media

The Infiltrator (2016)

Cell (2016)

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

Reclaim (2014)

"A totally routine movie that tries to combine a message about trafficked children with a lowbrow thriller about loved ones going missing in a foreign country. " ‐Common Sense Media

De Palma (2016)

"Brian De Palma is currently one of America's best filmmakers, or at least one of its most stylishly singular, and... "De Palma" cannily sheds light on exactly why. " Combustible Celluloid

Finding Dory (2016)

"In many ways, Finding Dory improves upon its predecessor, although it still doesn't rank as any kind of major achievement for the beloved animation studio. " Combustible Celluloid

Me Before You (2016)

"Me Before You might have been a profound movie, but it instead goes for an easy marketing niche, copying a template that has previously proven successful with female moviegoers of a certain age range." Combustible Celluloid

The Family Fang (2016)

"Laced with subtle performances and rich characters, Jason Bateman's The Family Fang is a big improvement over his last movie, the overly cynical-but-cute Bad Words. " Combustible Celluloid

Criminal (2016)

"Trying to explain what happens in CRIMINAL is bad enough -- you run up against all the things that make no sense -- but then there's the clumsy, jumbled, thoughtless way it's all put together. " ‐Common Sense Media

Miles Ahead (2016)

Krisha (2016)

Midnight Special (2016)

"Though talented indie filmmaker Jeff Nichols borrows from established sci-fi classics, this movie tells its story in a new way, rooted in characters and emotions, embracing uncertainty and loss. " ‐Common Sense Media

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016)

"The sequel is directed by Yuen Woo-Ping, who choreographed the fight scenes in the original... he's not as prestigious as Lee, and has fewer awards, but the man knows his kung fu." Combustible Celluloid

Where to Invade Next (2016)

"By now we know that Moore is far from an objective maker of documentaries; his films always have their own slant, but despite that, it's hard to refute some of the good ideas here. " ‐Common Sense Media

Remember (2016)

"Canadian director Atom Egoyan offers his best work in ages with this quietly observant drama. Paying special attention to sounds, places, and tones, the movie turns unexpectedly moving and powerful. " ‐Common Sense Media
