4/5 82% Sausage Party (2016) "The whole thing is so tasty, you may just want seconds. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Aug 10, 2016
2/5 80% The Lovers And The Despot (2016) "It's one hell of a yarn, which makes The Lovers and the Despot's strangely soporific style something of a disappointment. " ‐ Guardian

Posted Jun 29, 2016
3/5 46% Free State of Jones (2016) "The Free State of Jones is an anti-war film with a commie message that still glamorizes southern pride, hard work and the Good Book. It's a nuanced message far too rare in our current political state. " ‐ Guardian

Posted Jun 14, 2016
3/5 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "No musical mockumentary can avoid comparisons to This Is Spinal Tap, so you may as well go for a near carbon copy. The gamble pays off. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 1, 2016

Posted May 31, 2016

2/5 23% Pelé: Birth of a Legend (2016) "Considering this is the first biopic of one of the world's most beloved athletes, it's too bad such a predictable and ham-fisted kids' flick was the goal. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 11, 2016
4/5 94% Presenting Princess Shaw (2016) "Most people will find Thru You Princess inspirational. A few will find it infuriating. But that's frequently the case with a good documentary. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 10, 2016
3/5 23% Being Charlie (2016) "Despite its addiction to cliches, by the time Being Charlie ends it's a little bit emotional, thanks a great deal to Robinson's performance. " ‐ Guardian
