3/4 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) The look of Blade Runner 2049 tops the dark chaos of Blade Runner. Roger Deakins' cinematography and Dennis Gassner's production design are beyond stunning. It's hard to imagine anyone topping them for the Oscar.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 65% The Visit (2015) The Visit doesn't quite deliver a roundhouse punch. Unlike [M. Night] Shyamalan's early successes, there is no satisfying connection of emotions and events at the end. But it's scary and funny enough, and certainly well-made, to recommend.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 86% Trainwreck (2015) Trainwreck comes close to running off the rails only in the final act, when fantastical events occur. Even so, viewers can enjoy a great ride.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 85% It (2017) It's scary and funny but by the time all is said and done, It falls short of being a classic.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) It's a lavish and entertaining enough retelling of the "tale as old as time."‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3.5/4 96% Moana (2016) She's no official princess, but the girl can hold a tiara to Disney's legacy any day.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2/4 22% American Pastoral (2016) The book is dense and by turns unwieldy and lovely and troubled. Streamlined into a screenplay by John Romano ("The Lincoln Lawyer"), the narrative loses much of the complexity, and the resulting film borders on family melodrama.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

3/4 98% Don't Think Twice (2016) Don't Think Twice, written and directed by Mike Birbiglia, is full of cringe-worthy, oh-no moments. But beyond its subject, jealousy, desperation and sadness run neck-and-neck with the funny stuff.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

2.5/4 78% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) Bubblier than a prosecco cocktail, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a fake cinematic documentary that (mostly) pulls off a tough feat: it lampoons music genres that are insanely over-the-top.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

53% Whitney (2015) With so much of this family's lives on display, including that of the couple's only child, Bobbi Kristina, it's hard to really buy into the story writer Shem Bitterman is selling.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

52% Flowers in the Attic (2014) This is material that screams for a campy touch, but director Deborah Chow and teleplay writer Kayla Alpert tell the tale with mostly straight faces.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

No Score Yet Lovestruck: The Musical (2013) Bubbly as a diet soda and about as substantial, ABC Family's Lovestruck: The Musical offers up a pleasant little diversion for a spring evening.‐ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
