1.5/4 40% Tempest Storm (2016) While these elements on paper seem to explore the precarious balance between career and commitment, they don't thematically coalesce until the end of the film - long after it should have been played for more effect. - National Post EDIT

1.5/4 31% How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town (2016) Opting for gross-out gags and left-field revelations as its main mechanisms for humour, the movie operates with all the subtlety you'd expect from a sex comedy set in a town called Beaver's Ridge. - National Post EDIT

3/4 82% Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016) Men & Chicken is gratuitously weird, but not at the expense of crafting an intriguing narrative. - National Post EDIT

2/4 44% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) While Pixar's masterfulness is found in the subtlety of their approach, The Angry Birds Movie goes for broke in a more visceral approach, packing in pop culture references bound to go over any child's head, no matter how precocious. - National Post EDIT
