2/4 56% The Hollars (2016) "Doesn't register much louder than a mumble. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 23, 2016
3.5/4 91% Don't Breathe (2016) "While the sight-based conceit offers the opportunity for clever suspense and scares, it's the starkly realistic setting and all too newsworthy themes underpinning the spooky tale that makes the horror of this film so bone-chilling. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 23, 2016
3/4 92% Morris from America (2016) "A deeply felt coming of age story that's honest about the highs, lows and often awkward messiness of growing up. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 19, 2016
3.5/4 78% The People vs. Fritz Bauer (Der Staat Gegen Fritz Bauer) (2016) "What "The People vs. Fritz Bauer" does so well is distill large, complicated political issues into an intimate, personal story about one man's desire to bring not only justice, but catharsis to post-war Germany, mired in a fog of complacency. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 19, 2016
3/4 92% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) "Herzog breaks the internet, cracks it open to carefully examine the insides - the glorious possibilities and the devastating potential pitfalls. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 19, 2016
78% Joshy (2016) "It's a fascinating depiction of the way men do -- or don't -- confront life's tragedies and traumas. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 17, 2016
71% The Model (2016) "The Model digs into the sexual-political economy of Paris fashion through the experience of Emma (Danish model Maria Palm in her acting debut), a naive teen alone in a foreign land, chasing her dreams of fame and fortune. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 12, 2016
2.5/4 81% Sausage Party (2016) "This smack in the face of good manners is surprising and strange, often delightfully so. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 12, 2016
1/4 86% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) " A film that dares you to give it a bad review, simply so it can turn around and call you a bully who picks on the people who try. It invites you to giggle at Florence's horrible singing and then promptly scolds you for laughing, " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 12, 2016
4/4 98% Hell or High Water (2016) "A dusty, blood-soaked myth of crime and punishment far from fantasy, a finger planted on the pulse -- and the trigger. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 9, 2016
7% Nine Lives (2016) "A Frankenstein's monster of Hollywood's worst instincts, a movie made with a math formula where its vision should have been. The fact of the matter is that you're going to need nine wines to endure "Nine Lives." " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 8, 2016
75% Lace Crater (2016) "It would spill over into silly if not for the delicate performance of Burdge, who brings a palpable fragility and anchors the film with her sensitive, intensely physical performance. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 8, 2016
2.5/4 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "The characters are the ultimate in "squad goals," but they're far more fun than the actual story itself. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Aug 2, 2016
B 86% Miss Sharon Jones! (2016) "A fine tribute to her as an individual. But it leaves you wanting more - more from her history and rich backstory. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jul 29, 2016
83% Tallulah (2016) "Even if the tale is a bit much to be believed at times, it's unlikely you'll see a film more refreshingly honest and incisive about motherhood than "Tallulah." " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 29, 2016
78% Into The Forest (2016) "Walks a blade's edge between terrifying and uplifting... Rozema has a careful but unflinching eye when it comes to presenting the physical and emotional traumas the sisters experience. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 29, 2016
2/4 62% Bad Moms (2016) ""Bad Moms" makes a compelling argument for embracing imperfection and vulnerability, but we shouldn't have to accept that kind of messiness in our movies. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/4 57% Jason Bourne (2016) "Damon and Greengrass ably right the ship, delivering a Bourne film that looks and feels like the kind that we've always loved. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 26, 2016
2.5/4 61% Nerve (2016) ""Mr. Robot" meets "Battle Royale"... a neon-saturated teenage dream, high on first kisses and digital hearts. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 26, 2016
3/4 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Everything you want a post-modern "Trek" movie to be: funny, poppy, self-referential -- and with Captain Kirk punching bad guys in rubber masks. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 21, 2016
1/4 11% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) "A perfunctory, watered-down entry in the series that feels like it should have been released on home video. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/4 76% Lights Out (2016) "Built on a clever premise, the film is executed seamlessly. It's the best expression of a low-budget horror flick: resourceful and smart, where the most charismatic character is the ghoul itself. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 20, 2016
3/4 62% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "A big, bright and viciously bold celebration of funny, flawed women, and the friendship that sustains them. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 20, 2016
No Score Yet Ovation (2016) "Ovation is a loving tribute to the theater, to the intoxicating power of live performance and to the bond among performers and crew, from the lighting guy in the booth down to the star on the stage. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 18, 2016
2.5/4 32% Equals (2016) "Ambiguity allows "Equals" to back away from its assertions, and with a compelling premise but no message, the film disappointingly says nothing at all. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 13, 2016
3/4 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "Somehow, this Ghostbusters remake is going to push us all to reckon with what a more equal world might look like, whether we like it or not. Fortunately, the movie is tremendously easy to like. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 12, 2016
2.5/4 66% The Infiltrator (2016) "Rides on Cranston's abilities to so ably and sensitively portray the average American man torn between his double life. The story itself often seems outlandish, and if it weren't based on a true one, would feel unrealistic and overly contrived. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 12, 2016
28% Fathers And Daughters (2016) "Might as well have been titled "Daddy Issues: The Movie." " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 8, 2016
37% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "Doesn't even convincingly craft its own internal reality. There are no rules or character motivations, words come out of Zac Efron's mouth when it isn't moving, and Anna Kendrick's wig changes color seemingly at random. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 8, 2016
4/4 79% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Almost startling in how profoundly life-affirming and affecting it is. That's due in large part to Mortensen's wry and tender performance as a man not only committed to his ideals, but the ideals of his wife. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 8, 2016
2.5/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "Draws on the universal experience of pet ownership to draw out the "awww" in all of us. But the film butt-scoots by on its premise. There's not much more going on, thematically or emotionally below the surface. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jul 8, 2016
90% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) "Gondry brings a sense of heartfelt nostalgia, pathos and humor to this portrait of a short, unique adolescent moment. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 1, 2016
3/4 75% The BFG (2016) "The most effective moments of "The BFG" are the ones that hit home with wistful emotion, but surprise with the possibilities of magic in connections - those moments that Spielberg and Dahl have defined for a generation. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3 1/2/4 55% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "The biggest, baddest, berserkest Purge so far. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/4 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "Strangely naive in the way it rewrites history... feels both misguided and slapdash, and the good parts aren't enough to muddle through this overly complicated and dull-as-dirt story. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 30, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "One of the best season finale episodes of the series - a shocking yet satisfying, suspenseful coda to season six. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 27, 2016
No Score Yet Paint It Black ""Paint it Black" has some real gems among the jumble, especially Shawkat, who ably shoulders the task at hand, and gives a raw and sensitive performance of a woman dealing with the loss of a lover far too young. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 24, 2016
17% Careful What You Wish For (2016) "Everything that comes before is rote and by-the-book, from the groan-worthy innuendo-laden puns to the two-dimensional cookie-cutter characters, it's a color-by-numbers thriller that's flat. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2.5/4 69% Central Intelligence (2016) "Doesn't have much going for it beyond its leading men, the leading men just might be worth the price of admission. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 24, 2016
67% Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) (2016) "Surprising, invigorating and sharply frank. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
93% Parched (2016) "A bright jewel of a film, surprisingly funny, fresh and upbeat in the way it takes on the complicated and often dark topic of sexual politics in rural India. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
19% The Duel (2016) "Pretty to look at, but the story itself is overly long and overly wrought, a flabby two-hour tale that feels about three. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
50% The Debt (Oliver's Deal) (2016) "Despite its best efforts to be thought-provoking, the film is dramatically inert, slow and its revelations aren't all that politically illuminating, relying on coincidence and worn tropes to obfuscate its lack of ingenuity. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2/4 79% Seoul Searching (2016) "Despite the overwrought stylization, the heart of "Seoul Searching" does ultimately emerge. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2.5/4 76% The Shallows (2016) "A splash of fresh seawater in the face of a rather dismal summer movie season. It's very cheesy, which is how escapist summer cinema should be, and part of its charm is that it's not self-reflective enough to be aware of its own cheesiness. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 24, 2016
3.5/4 51% The Neon Demon (2016) "Archly silly, quotable, visually hypnotic and perfectly suited for repeat viewings. On first watch, the film is bizarre, hallucinatory, shockingly gruesome. A second watch unlocks the dumb-clever charms of Refn's script " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 24, 2016
2.5/4 43% Free State of Jones (2016) "Ross bit off more than he can chew... the story lolls and wallows in wartime violence and the rebellion, then rushes through the horrors and trauma of Reconstruction. " ‐ Tribune News Service
Posted Jun 24, 2016
85% My Love, Don't Cross That River (2016) "My Love, Don't Cross That River is a moving tribute to the beauties and mysteries of life and death, an exploration of how growing old gives the gift of time, but there's never enough. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 24, 2016
98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 9 "Beautifully chaotic, epically grimy, and almost unbearable to watch, but impossible to look away from. " ‐ The Playlist
Posted Jun 22, 2016
A- 95% Tickled (2016) "Simply delightful in just how stranger than fiction it manages to be. " ‐ The Playlist
