5/5 92% Kate Plays Christine (2016) "It's a movie at war with itself, and rightly so, because any attempt it makes to reimagine Christine Chubbuck's life is, on some level, ethically wrong. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 24, 2016
2/5 45% Hands of Stone (2016) "A sticky piece of cornball that keeps pulling its punches. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 24, 2016
5/5 92% Howards End (1992) "If only more costume dramas were this close to being electric. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 23, 2016
2/5 48% The Hollars (2016) "One minute Richard Jenkins is emphatically crying over his wife's illness, which is apparently a running gag. The next Wilco is playing over earnest montages of people staring into space. " ‐ Metro

3/5 92% Southside With You (2016) "It's the pleasant movie we deserve after a needlessly contentious eight years. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 90% Don't Breathe (2016) "Director Fede Alvarez is a pro at creating tension with nothing more than sound effects and shots that constantly have us thinking of what's outside the frame. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 22, 2016
3/5 62% A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016) "A flawed but worthwhile effort - a deeply personal project, but not one so delicate that it's easily mocked. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 18, 2016
3/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) "This isn't a smug broadside against the global village. Much as Herzog mourns (in that voice) over the dark side, he's also smitten with the possibilities in a future we have no way of predicting. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 17, 2016
2/5 28% Ben-Hur (2016) "The big centerpiece - that super-duper-mega-chariot race - is only disappointing in the sense it's almost the same as the famous one. (Adding GoPro insert shots doesn't constitute an improvement.) " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 17, 2016
2/5 59% War Dogs (2016) "Is it really that hard to make a rollicking satire about amoral arms dealers? " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 16, 2016
3/5 91% Morris from America (2016) "Craig Robinson is a revelation without being just another comedic actor turned semi-serious; as in his funny roles, he knows there's great power in pretending to do very little. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 16, 2016
4/5 96% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) "Even if it has no interest in birthing a franchise, it deserves to live on as an instant classic. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 15, 2016
3/5 74% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) "It's a nerve-jangler that jangles nerves by keeping us in the dark and staying uncomfortably close to its damaged hero. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 12, 2016
2/5 73% My King (Mon roi) (2016) "A movie with enough talent to convince you, every 10 or so minutes, that it might be more than a movie about a couple that never should have lasted beyond than a one night stand. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 12, 2016
3/5 100% Abortion: Stories Women Tell "It's not about merely being even-handed; it's about understanding a complicated issue while reminding viewers that no one, not least those choosing to have an abortion, take it lightly. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 12, 2016
4/5 98% Hell or High Water (2016) "The rare crime movie with room for both commentary on the housing crisis and "That's what she said" jokes. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 10, 2016
4/5 87% Pete's Dragon (2016) "The new "Pete's Dragon" could be another pox on the multiplexes; instead it's closer to the cure. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 10, 2016
4/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) "Walks a fine line between deep mockery and genuine empathy. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 10, 2016
4/5 93% The Little Prince (2016) "It's part-adaptation, part fan-fiction, part update. But it doesn't forsake the original. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 5, 2016
3/5 26% Five Nights in Maine (2016) "It's a small movie, often to a fault. But every time you're about to write it off as "Generic Grief Indie #451," it surprises you. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 4, 2016
5/5 100% Multiple Maniacs (1970) "Negligible budget and poor framing and crap in the film gate and shots that go in and out of focus and all, "Multiple Maniacs" is a helluva movie. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 4, 2016
4/5 97% Little Men (2016) "It's amazing "Little Men" only runs 85 minutes. Somehow it's both economical and open. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 3, 2016
2/5 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "The rare comic book movie that truly feels like it came from one person's wackadoodle vision. " ‐ Metro
Posted Aug 2, 2016
3/5 84% Equity (2016) "Remarkably efficient, free of fat, as tough and steely as its hero herself. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 29, 2016
3/5 80% Indignation (2016) "It's not the Roth movie that "gets" it - that transports his specific tone and charm (and, sometimes, epic lack of charm) into cinema. But it is the one that finds its own voice while piggybacking off of his. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 28, 2016
2/5 62% Bad Moms (2016) "It's a good cast and a good vibe in search of a movie that gives them something better to do. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/5 96% Gleason (2016) "It's easy to read this as a triumph-of-the-human-spirit jag or even a stranger-than-fiction tall tale. But it runs deeper than that. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 27, 2016
3/5 61% Nerve (2016) ""Nerve" seems too good to be true, and it is, sort of. After a dynamite first two acts, the third bites off more than it can chew. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 26, 2016
2/5 57% Jason Bourne (2016) "It tries to bring back the good old days but comes off like the guy who still wants to shotgun Buds (or Americas) at 50 while blasting W.A.S.P. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 26, 2016
5/5 100% BoJack Horseman: Season 3 (TV, 2016) ""BoJack Horseman" is both the funniest and saddest show on television right now. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 25, 2016
4/5 99% Don't Think Twice (2016) "A quietly devastating and exacting portrait of a tight-knit group splintering. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/5 90% The Childhood of a Leader (2016) "It's an art film version of "The Bad Seed," where the antics are minor but the outcome is even bigger: One never expects the kid who acts up a little bit will one day almost destroy the world. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 21, 2016
3/5 62% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "The new "Star Wars" was basically the first "Star Wars," and the "AbFab" movie is basically a super-long episode of the show. Where the former's unoriginality stemmed from a lack of nerve, with the latter it's an act of defiance. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 20, 2016
3/5 76% Lights Out (2016) "If anything it tries too hard, resulting in a nerve-jangler that's both smart and deeply silly. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 20, 2016
0/5 4% Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party (2016) "It's 'The Room' of political cinema - a movie so jam-packed with uniquely ridiculous crap (and worse acting) that you'll need an after-sex cigarette to recover. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 20, 2016
3/5 83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "The kind of movie the bloated second one should have been: a one-off romp - a super-sized version of an old episode, just with more hot-dogging motorcycle stunts and stuff going boom. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 18, 2016
3/5 71% Café Society (2016) "It's a film that seems better in retrospect, like a magic trick that seemed dodgy but reveals itself with its killer prestige. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 15, 2016
3/5 91% Phantom Boy (2016) "You could certainly make the animated French children's fantasy-thriller 'Phantom Boy' as a live-action film. But it wouldn't be as charming. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/5 44% Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (2016) "The ambiguity, that refusal to steer us to one opinion or another forces us to evaluate Robbins with an open mind. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 13, 2016
3/5 66% The Infiltrator (2016) "Its most perverse twist on the undercover genre is this: It finds sympathy for one of the devils. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 12, 2016
2/5 32% Equals (2016) "It's not the first time someone's ripped off George Orwell, but it is the first one to have this many feels. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 11, 2016
3/5 73% Ghostbusters (2016) "The new 'Ghostbusters' is its own thing, has its own voice, and is only mildly slavish to an old commodity. Broken down it's 30 percent a new "Ghostbusters" movie, 70 percent a new Paul Feig movie. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 11, 2016
4/5 92% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) "The nicest movie in theaters right now is 'Our Little Sister.' That's not to say it's not sad or dark or that its characters can't be prickly and neurotic. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 8, 2016
3/5 84% Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You (2016) "As history it's often thin - and it just barely namedrops Lear's one film directing credit, the 1970 cigarette satire 'Cold Turkey' - but the thin-ness, in a strange way, is part of the charm " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 68% Men Go To Battle (2016) "Deep down it's not about authenticity so much as how time stomps on us all, and how major historical events occur outside of our perception. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 79% Captain Fantastic (2016) "This could have been a movie the usual people love and the usual people hate. Instead it asks everyone to look at everything that happens with great and exacting skepticism. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/5 36% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) "The Stangles lucked into brief fame and unearned riches, but they've been rewarded with a movie that (mostly) upends their dudeish worldview and makes the ladies funnier than the gentlemen. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 5, 2016
3/5 90% Microbe and Gasoline (Microbe et Gasoil) (2016) "A reminder that Gondry is as brooding as he is silly, even when making an outlier like 'Microbe & Gasoline.' " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 1, 2016
3/5 93% Life, Animated (2016) "There's a lot here about how pop culture impacts us, but even more about how adversity can bring out our very best. " ‐ Metro
Posted Jul 1, 2016
5/5 94% Blood Simple (1984) "The audience has to work in 'Blood Simple,' and its niftiest trick may not be apparent till the lights have come up. " ‐ Metro
