Jackie (2016)

Allied (2016)

"The picture works better as a portrait of a man worried about what his wife might be withholding from him than it does as a WWII story." Aisle Seat

Rules Don't Apply (2016)

"What begins as a light, jaunty look at how sane people deal with disturbed-but-important bigwigs morphs into a scattershot mess." Aisle Seat

Elle (2016)

Doctor Strange (2016)

"Great fun! Doctor Strange has everything you'd want or expect from a Marvel adventure, but it also feels fresh and new. " Aisle Seat

The Eagle Huntress (2016)

"Captivating! Over the course of 87 minutes, you come to really care about this girl, not just for what she accomplishes, but for who she is." Aisle Seat

1.5/4 22%

Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016)

"Dropping Madea into a comic Halloween adventure should have been a recipe for fun. Dropping her into one that recycles jokes and celebrates the virtues of beating children proves to be the exact opposite of fun." Aisle Seat

Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)

"You could be forgiven for completely writing off the movie. But don't. In what ranks as one of the year's happiest surprises, this is a terrific old-school fright flick that delivers both chills and substance." Aisle Seat

The Accountant (2016)

"Whoever cut that theatrical trailer should be given an Oscar. They made a confused, frustratingly muddled picture look coherent." Aisle Seat

3.5/4 83%

Doomed: The Untold Story Of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four (2015)

"Fascinating and sometimes funny. This is one of the most candid behind-the-scenes documentaries of recent times because the interviewees have no reason to suppress their true feelings." Aisle Seat

Godzilla Resurgence (Shin Godzilla) (2016)

"Puts a cool, inventive, modern-day twist on the whole concept of a Godzilla flick." Aisle Seat
Posted Oct 9, 2016
2.5/4 44%

The Girl on the Train (2016)

"Both exhilarating and frustrating. Exhilarating in that it's a rare mainstream Hollywood film filled with strong female characters, frustrating in that the storytelling around those characters is needlessly muddled." Aisle Seat
Posted Oct 7, 2016
2.5/4 98%

Under The Shadow (2016)

"It tries to be both a political allegory and a horror movie, never quite finding a way to meld the two together smoothly. Consequently, this is a film more easily admired than enjoyed." Aisle Seat

Masterminds (2016)

"This is the kind of not great/not terrible picture that will work better on a casual home viewing than as a big screen experience." Aisle Seat

Deepwater Horizon (2016)

"Works extremely well as both a nail-biting recreation of a horrific accident and as a celebration of the American worker." Aisle Seat

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"The Magnificent Seven has no real substance, meaning, or depth. It simply is what it is: a breezy Western adventure with a bunch of name actors. On that level, it works. " Aisle Seat

Blair Witch (2016)

"In spite of some stabs at freshness in presenting the found footage requisites, Blair Witch is largely stuck going through the motions established by its predecessor. " Aisle Seat

Sully (2016)

"Both an admiring recreation of the Miracle on the Hudson and a poignant reflection on how an ordinary, yet supremely competent man declines to exalt himself as a hero." Aisle Seat

Morgan (2016)

Greater (2016)

I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)

Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)

War Dogs (2016)

The Fight Within (2016)

"A film that combines rampant sermonizing with muscular dudes beating the crap out of each other. It's every bit as bizarre as it sounds." Aisle Seat

The Mind's Eye (2016)

"There's not a ton of depth to The Mind's Eye, but as a punchy, gruesomely funny horror movie, it succeeds quite well." Aisle Seat

Suicide Squad (2016)

"While far from perfect, Suicide Squad is a step forward for the DC Cinematic Universe after the utter disaster that was Batman v Superman." Aisle Seat

Sun Choke (2016)

Bad Moms (2016)

"There are more than enough big laughs to satisfy. And underneath it all is a pretty sincere message about how it's okay for parents to make mistakes sometimes." Aisle Seat

Can We Take a Joke? (2016)

Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)

Lights Out (2016)

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"The issue is that Beyond tries to be a "hip" Star Trek story. Star Trek can be many things; hip is not one of them." Aisle Seat

The Ratings Game (The Mogul) (1984)

"Television has changed so dramatically since 1984 that the film has lost a lot of its direct relevance. There's still fun to be had, it's just that the sting isn't as great as it likely was when it initially aired." Aisle Seat
