Jackie (2016)

"Unlike previous projects, this unique film zeroes in on a particular timeframe, in which the indelible legacies of both Jack and Jackie Kennedy first came to pass." ‐Doddle

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

"Even with the Potter pedigree, creator Rowling, director Yates and talented Redmayne ... Fantastic Beasts isn't all that fantastic after all. Harry would be disappointed." ‐Doddle

Almost Christmas (2016)

"The fact that this Xmas family film released on Veterans Day makes it unique. Sadly, that's about it." ‐Doddle

The Accountant (2016)

"The cluttered plot aside, factoring in an uncommon protagonist (well-played by Affleck) and 2 surprise twists in the 3rd act, the film still lands in the black." ‐Doddle

Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016)

"So screamingly funny, your own raucous laughter just may drown out some of Hart's lines. Rewind needed here." ‐Doddle

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

"While the depiction of monstrous cruelty and the battle scenes are highly effective, the film suffers from a lack of nuance." ‐Doddle

Storks (2016)

"This baby buddy comedy offers a flock of high-flying fun. But filmmakers may want to issue a blanket apology to parents ... how are they going to explain where babies come from now?" ‐Doddle

The Royal Road (2015)

"It is at once a static, yet highly moving film." ‐Doddle

In Order of Disappearance (2016)

"Martin McDonagh meets Quentin Tarantino ... yet bristles with its own brand of quirk" ‐Doddle

Suicide Squad (2016)

"Don't think of "Suicide Squad" as the villainous flipside to "X-Men" ... instead, think Zzzzz-Men." ‐Doddle

8.5/10 98%

Iris (2015)

"So much more than meets Iris's bespectacled eyes: looking at self-determination, relentless individuality, devil-may-care creativity, romance, fame and mortality...all peppered throughout with delicious humor. " ‐Doddle

Nerve (2016)

"Succeeds as a suspenseful, yet cautionary tale that speaks to the screen-centric Generation Z. Hopefully, movies like Nerve ... may actually touch one." ‐Doddle

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

"Me Tarzan. You Jane. Movie dumb." ‐Doddle

The Look of Silence (2015)

"The anemic excuses for participating in mass murder are sickeningly familiar, e.g., "I was just carrying out orders." Name a genocide, and these kinds of justifications bloom like wildflowers in an Indonesian jungle." ‐Doddle

Central Intelligence (2016)

"Wild unorthodox teaming of a frenetic Kevin Hart running headlong into one substantial Rock, aka Dwayne Johnson." ‐Doddle

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

"Wan's developed into a clever horror-meister, tinkering with the classic pacing of the anticipated bump in the night. Solid performances from Farmiga and young Madison Wolfe strengthen the sequel." ‐Doddle

Keanu (2016)

"For moviegoers who haven't seen this brilliant duo before, this cinematic experience may be akin to catnip. And you thought cat videos were fun ..." ‐Doddle

London Has Fallen (2016)

"First, 'Olympus Has Fallen;' now 'London Has Fallen' ... maybe things will look up with the final chapter. Let's call it 'Face Has Fallen.'" ‐Doddle

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

""Benghazi" is far more than a political buzzword. If it takes a superb film like 13 Hours to remind us of that fact, then job well done." ‐Doddle

45 Years (2015)

"A masterpiece of a drama that examines a couple's fraying relationship after decades of marriage. Add to that, a delicate hint of a ghost story." ‐Doddle

The Big Short (2015)

"With punch and pop, the film looks at 4 disparate outsiders who are far enough removed from the center of the action to see it for what it's worth ... and for what it's not." ‐Doddle

Legend (2015)

"Tom Hardy impresses mightily as he"splits up with himself." Yet even with his skills, Legend often misses the mark." ‐Doddle

Youth (2015)

"Glorious Sorrentino film acknowledges that even at the end of the ever-diminishing day, 'youth' might still be considered a fountain within reach. Even at the age of 80." ‐Doddle

3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015)

"Though the courtroom scenes resonate, the film frustrates due to sidestepping explorations of Dunn, his fiancee and Florida's Stand Your Ground law." ‐Doddle

Brooklyn (2015)

"Saorsie Ronan's immigrant girl undertakes an arduous sea voyage from her Irish homeland to America. Just like Ronan's own odyssey, it's the journey from teen to woman that fascinates." ‐Doddle

Spotlight (2015)

"Though worth seeing, the film's energy suffers from brownout ... sometimes a surge, sometimes a flicker.And nowhere near the neighborhood of McCarthy's earlier, marvelous work." ‐Doddle

Beasts of No Nation (2015)

"A story about just one of the 300,000 child solders currently exploited in combat worldwide. Non-actor Abraham Attah is an absolute wonder to behold." ‐Doddle

The Intern (2015)

"Unlike Nancy Meyers' earlier film, "It's Complicated" ... this one isn't." ‐Doddle

7 Chinese Brothers (2015)

"The one bright spot is French bulldog Arrow (Schwartzman's own dog), who snorts and sighs and all but rolls his eyes in annoyance at the lifeless goings-on. We are Arrow; Arrow is us." ‐Doddle

Straight Outta Compton (2015)

"The film antagonizes. It instigates. Just like gangsta rap itself." ‐Doddle

Welcome to Me (2015)

"It's a crying shame (not a hysterical, mentally unwell crying shame), but a crying shame nevertheless that the movie falls short. Especially given Wiig's stellar performance." ‐Doddle

Danny Collins (2015)

"While the plot sounds like an old familiar tune (dissipated artist changes his wicked ways when he realizes that love of family/friends is worth more than fame/fortune), it's Danny's dazzle that intoxicates." ‐Doddle

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015)

"The irreverent title suggests that this movie may smash our preconceptions about the current formulaic tale of budding teen love tragically interrupted. And so it does, beautifully." ‐Doddle

The Age of Adaline (2015)

"Adaline is an 107-year-old mash-up of Hawking, Holmes and Mario Andretti, all dressed up in Gucci with nowhere to go. What a fascinating character the screenwriters never bothered to develop." ‐Doddle

The Harvest (2015)

"The primary horror in 'The Harvest' comes from watching the superlative talents of Michael Shannon and Samantha Morton wasted on such secondary swill." ‐Doddle

Nightcrawler (2014)

"The fascinating, disturbing Nightcrawler questions the line between crime reportage, and reportage that's a crime in and of itself. That is, if that line still exists at all..." ‐Doddle

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

"Many Wes Anderson films have been intricately laced together, the ingredients blending just so. But nothing matches this perfectly layered concoction, wrapped up in an impeccable confectioner's bow." ‐Doddle

Boyhood (2014)

"We can't help feeling inexorably attuned to these people ... as if the idea of sitting down to dinner with them is not only possible, but de facto." ‐Doddle

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

"Cleverly titled, this Girl who Walks Home Alone At Night has nothing to fear ... but everyone else does." ‐Doddle

Unbroken (2014)

"Just in time for the holidays, UNBROKEN is akin to 'The 12 Days of Christmas" ... unbearably repetitive." ‐Doddle

Wild (2014)

"At the end of the long and winding road, between lack of dramatic heft and a character arc that's as slender as a sapling, we're left wondering just where the Wild went." ‐Doddle

Ida (2014)

"Rather than relying on any preceding work driven by the written word, the filmmakers have constructed a masterpiece that nods to the sheer poetry of the visual." ‐Doddle

Snowpiercer (2014)

"A refreshingly smart thriller, its geopolitical savvy mingled with a wholly unique look, Snowpiercer is quite the dystopian choo-choo." ‐Doddle

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"Sometimes the Marvel universe isn't as Marvelous as we've come to expect. Might have been more enjoyable if there had been a compelling story to go along with all the sound and fury ... Nick Fury." ‐Doddle

Sabotage (2014)

"Sabotage is nothing more than an excuse for Arnold the AARPster to throw his weight around, bludgeoning us with equal parts of carnage and deathly boredom ... which is sort of like killing us twice." ‐Doddle

The Wind Rises (2014)

"'The Wind Rises' is akin to sitting through an unbearably long flight in which the view can only be appreciated so much ..." ‐Doddle

3 Days To Kill (2014)

"At the end of the day, this movie didn't need 3 days to kill. 2 hours was more than enough." ‐Doddle
