4/5 63% Bad Moms (2016) "Bad Moms is full of bad language and worse behaviour, but bottom line, it's a valentine to moms everywhere. Despite what you've been seeing all summer on the big screen, real superheroes wear aprons, not capes. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/5 33% Equals (2016) "This is a visually interesting meditation on human emotion, and it's too bad there isn't quite enough story to go around. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/5 79% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Captain Fantastic is an engaging character study about compromise, humility, letting go and love of family. It's one of the best films you'll see all year. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "Wiig is at her best, Jones is a revelation, Chris Hemsworth is a wonderful surprise in the movie and Kate McKinnon steals the show. They're all weirdly endearing, too, and it has nothing to do with nostalgia. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 10, 2016
3/5 74% The BFG (2016) "You'd be forgiven for expecting it to be far more interesting than it is. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 30, 2016
2/5 32% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) "Want to see things blow up good? Independence Day: Resurgence really delivers. However, if you like a bit of story to go with all those explosions -- forget it. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 24, 2016
3.5/5 77% The Shallows (2016) "The Shallows is brisk and engaging, and a great vehicle for Lively. The film has the sort of breathtaking cinematography that will inspire you to visit the ocean. And a story that may stop you from ever going into the water again. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 23, 2016
4/5 51% The Neon Demon (2016) "The Neon Demon is a cautionary tale about youth, beauty and Los Angeles, a vampiric study of modelling that is both terrifying and hilarious. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 23, 2016
3/5 49% Genius (2016) "It's not bad, Genius, but it could have been great, and that's the disappointment. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 16, 2016
4/5 74% Into The Forest (2016) "In the midst of blockbuster season, any viewer hungry for character-driven drama will appreciate the subtlety, intelligence and power of Into the Forest. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 2, 2016
2/5 38% Mr. Right (2016) "Rockwell and Kendrick are great together, but the movie never quite marries the cute romance and the bloody killings. Most of the time the two leads appear to be on their own in a completely separate movie. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 26, 2016
4/5 99% Love & Friendship (2016) "Love & Friendship is quick, clever and delightful, very funny and hugely entertaining. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 26, 2016
5/5 89% A Bigger Splash (2016) "Even when the story turns dark, much remains unsaid, unresolved and ambiguous. Four great performances bring the whole thing to life. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 12, 2016
4/5 84% The Meddler (2016) "This is a sunny little gem of a film. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 5, 2016
3/5 78% Keanu (2016) "It's a credit to the chemistry and charisma of Key and Peele that the movie works at all. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Apr 28, 2016
4/5 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) "The best thing about Hello, My Name Is Doris is that nothing gets resolved in the expected movie fashion. The story will make you laugh, no question, but it will also make you deeply uncomfortable, and we mean that in the best way. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3/5 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Miles Ahead has its moments, but the movie is disjointed and, for the uninitiated, probably bewildering. You could say the narrative has the same creative flights of fancy as a Davis' jazz composition, but that would be a lie. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Apr 14, 2016
4/5 90% Sleeping Giant (2015) "Everything changes over a single summer for the kids in Sleeping Giant, a superb coming-of-age story set in Northern Ontario. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/5 53% Demolition (2016) "Around the time Davis starts smashing his house and its contents to smithereens, Demolition goes into story overdrive. And stops being interesting. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Apr 7, 2016
4/5 83% Midnight Special (2016) "The movie has its flaws, but it is nonetheless an intriguing sci-fi entry and an engaging story about family. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3/5 29% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) "The movie has Andrea Martin, who returns as bossy Aunt Voula, sometimes dispensing her gonzo brand of sexual advice and sometimes confiding her list of bizarre medical curiosities. She alone may be worth the price of admission. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 24, 2016
4/5 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Watching battle organized at arm's length is a strange and surreal experience, steeped in dread. When Eye in the Sky eventually touches down to put a viewer right into the centre of the action, emotionally speaking, it's a jarring transition. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3/5 90% The Lobster (2016) "For this viewer the whole thing ran out of steam halfway through. A general flat affect, mirrored in visuals and performance, eventually stopped being funny. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3/5 33% The Bronze (2016) "There are some decent laughs here (especially for a well choreographed sex scene) and even an amusing soundtrack, but there's just not enough story to go around. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 18, 2016
3/5 90% River (2016) "As thrillers go, the thrill is gone fairly quickly. But give River points for appearing to ask hard questions about do-gooders in far-away places. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 10, 2016
4/5 59% Barney Thomson (The Legend of Barney Thomson) (2016) "You don't have to be a Scot to laugh yourself silly at The Legend of Barney Thomson, although canny viewers will no doubt catch more of the inside references. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 4, 2016
2/5 26% London Has Fallen (2016) "The sequel swaps cunning for brutal violence and turns Banning into a one man killing machine. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Mar 3, 2016
3/5 71% A Perfect Day (2016) "A Perfect Day is a war story told on a small scale. It's all the more powerful for its subtlety. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 25, 2016
3.5/5 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "This tale of the quixotic British athlete who became the darling of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games is a tad sugary sweet, but thanks to the performances of Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton, the end result is a family film that's highly entertaining. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 55% Triple 9 (2016) "Triple 9 races past in a blur of crime and action scenes, with plenty of violence and the odd spot of gallows humour to keep things interesting. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 25, 2016
4/5 91% The Witch (2016) "Helped by along by a great cast, a haunting soundtrack and terrific attention to period detail, The Witch is an auspicious feature debut for writer-director Robert Eggers. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 19, 2016
3/5 68% Snowtime! (2016) "To make a snowball fight seem like this much fun and then lay on a terrible lesson seems somewhat disingenuous. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet A Date With Miss Fortune (2016) "The comedy is essentially sweet-natured; the conflict that will keep our lovebirds apart, so crucial to the genre, does not go down quite so well. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 4, 2016
11% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "This is a movie that desperately wants to be a raunchy, politically incorrect, gross-out comedy. It gets as far as desperate. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2.5/5 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Waaaaay too talky and overcomplicated. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jan 28, 2016
4/5 97% 45 Years (2015) "A movie that will shatter you. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 97% It Follows (2015) "No question that the storytelling here is impressive; the story itself, however, is a bit thin. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 30, 2015
1/5 0% Extraction (2015) "It's a rare movie that can't be saved by Bruce Willis single-handedly killing all the bad guys. And yet, here it is: Extraction. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 17, 2015
4/5 73% Youth (2015) "Youth is imperfect and it meanders, but Caine and Keitel bring this thing to life with gusto. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/5 94% Carol (2015) "Carol is a complex human story about unspoken desire, social expectations and an authentic life. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/5 60% Life (2015) "Both Pattinson and DeHaan could have used more to do, but both actors put in performances that elevate the proceedings. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 61% Legend (2015) "It's not short of thrills, the biggest of which is Hardy's double performance. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 3, 2015
3.5/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) "It's Julia Roberts who owns the movie. As the grieving Jess, a woman reduced to a shadow by the death of her daughter, Roberts is a revelation here. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 20, 2015
3/5 81% Man Up (2015) "Man Up has a couple of bits that don't quite work and the ending is just silly, but for the most part, Pegg and Bell carry this thing through sheer force of personality. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 19, 2015
4/5 97% Brooklyn (2015) "It's such a beautiful film. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3.5/5 34% By The Sea (2015) "By the Sea [is] a strange, dream-like undertaking and ravishing to look at. What it all means is tougher to work out. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3/5 44% The 33 (2015) "The 33 is not a failure. It's a crowd-pleasing, sentimental, middle-of-the-road venture suitable for any audience. And that's a pity, because the subject matter cries out for a much more muscular treatment. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "Spotlight is a mystery, a thriller and a human interest drama, but mostly it's a love letter to investigative journalism. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
4/5 100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "Kilo Two Bravo is one of the most intense anti-war films extant. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3.5/5 45% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse manages to be a very good comedy, a scary adventure, a tale of friendship and a coming of age story, all rolled into one. " ‐ Toronto Sun
