Jason Bourne (2016)

Hardcore Henry (2016)

Midnight Special (2016)

"For whatever weaknesses Midnight Special has, what attention it does pay to character and mood raises it above much of its kindred."

Keanu (2016)

"The fact that the minds behind it have shown themselves repeatedly to be capable of so much more, the response to Keanu can't be any more than disappointment."

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

"[T]he basic skeleton of the story is at obvious odds with itself and not all of the charismatic actors in the world will keep the outcome from feeling like it lasts forever."

Pan (2015)

"Though the film's story technically meets the definition of 'new,' little in it will offer up the feeling that word evokes."
Posted Oct 6, 2015
6.5/10 84%

The Walk (2015)

"For all its visual brilliance, The Walk never manages to explain exactly what its goal is - or more specifically why anyone should care - because it's not a film about Philippe at all but only about what he walked on."
Posted Oct 1, 2015
6.5/10 64%

The Visit (2015)

"There's too much good in it to call it a failure, but in many ways The Visit is less than the sum of its parts. "
Posted Sep 11, 2015
