90% Isle of Dogs (2018) But all in all, Isle of Dogs is worth recommending. Yes, it's probably the most problematic thing Anderson's done. It's also the most intricate, the most alluring, the most frivolous. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

22% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) It's very easy to see all the things that went wrong during that Air France hijacking; it's a lot harder to figure out how 7 Days in Entebbe made so many consistently bad choices.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

82% Game Night (2018) An amazing performance from Jesse Plemons, who never lets go of a Westie Terrier. And the ridiculously likable [Rachel] McAdams proves yet again she's the Meryl Streep of her generation.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

87% Annihilation (2018) Annihilation is the best kind of cinematic experience, one that floods the senses without battering them into submission, and one that moves the mind and heart without manipulating them. It's a staggering thing to witness.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

78% All the Money in the World (2017) This thing should have been a disaster. In Scott's hands, it's anything but.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) So as a star-studded actors' showcase, Murder on the Orient Express is uncomfortable. As a mystery, it's a total bust-you'll care less about solving the murder than about figuring out just what is going on with Branagh's mustache. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

28% Suburbicon (2017) The movie's a sour mishmash of too many ingredients that shouldn't have been mixed together.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

80% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) [Yorgos] Lanthimos gets under your skin and stays there.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

86% American Made (2017) The movie's a bit of a mess, but it does enough things really well that it's always fun to watch.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Kingsman: The Golden Circle what we should've expected from a Kingsman sequel-worse than the original, but still more fun than it has any right to be.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

100% Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead (2017) Long Strange Trip may be a challenging proposition for non-devotees, but it's worth diving into if you have even a mild interest in 20th-century music or American history. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% Menashe (2017) [Joshua Z. ] Weinstein's Menashe succeeds in doing what many good films do; it opens the door to a world most of us don't really know.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% Logan Lucky (2017) A couple of clicks toward even more weirdness and Logan Lucky might have landed Soderbergh in Coen Brothers territory. Now that really would have been something to behold.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) It's exactly what you're expecting, but longer, louder, and with an almost unfathomable amount of digitally created violence.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) A piece of blissfully speculative fiction that takes its small but amusing concept and runs with it.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) Like the cheapest types of candy, there's a hollow center to The Huntsman: Winter's War.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) While [Srinivasa] Ramanujan was a fascinating figure in real life, his movie representation is opaque and uninteresting. It doesn't add up.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) These are stories that should haunt your dreams; instead, they're weird but temporary diversions.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

29% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) In the correct hands, Alice 2 could have been a sugar-spun confection sailing effortlessly on wordplay and visual invention. Instead, it's a shipwreck‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

27% Warcraft (2016) Way less joyous and far more serious than it should be. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

75% The BFG (2016) Spielberg seems to have once again tapped that particular vein of childhood logic where strange things are to be explored and experienced rather than feared.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

72% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) John le Carré's source book makes for a ripping great story, in which international intrigue is shot through with a surprising amount of heart. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Wilderpeople is a hugely loveable movie that's suitable for date night or the whole family, and I know that sounds like a hacky movie poster blurb. But when a movie's this good, it's tough to avoid clichés. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

55% Jason Bourne (2016) The action scenes are good, and that's all you ever really need out of a Bourne movie.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

70% Café Society (2016) It's definitely not the best pancake [Woody] Allen's ever whipped up, but it isn't the worst, either.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
97% Hell or High Water (2016) This is a movie so perfectly paced, so generous in the portrayal of its characters, so understated and intelligent and incisive that it's painful and lovely to watch.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

86% Sully (2016) The flight and its landing are depicted transparently and without fuss. Your knuckles will be white all the same.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

96% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) Eight Days a Week is a well-drawn reminder that nothing gold-or platinum-can stay, not even the biggest band in the world.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

52% The Accountant (2016) Whatever numbers game The Accountant is playing, it doesn't add up.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

22% Inferno (2016) Inferno is the sort of half-crappy thing you might watch for free on an airplane. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

90% Loving (2016) [Jeff] Nichols's tale has no real urgency, and as a result, Loving feels vacant. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

57% Rules Don't Apply (2016) As Beatty's fable unfolds, it becomes a winning period piece anchored by the super-charismatic [Lily] Collins and [Alden] Ehrenreich.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) When you remember how well the first Bad Santa drew its characters-with depth and cruelty and razor-sharp precision-the sequel is less "White Christmas" and more white elephant. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
41% Office Christmas Party (2016) Office Christmas Party rolls out joke after joke like an ever-patient Santa with a bottomless bag of toys-plenty of 'em don't work, but only a Grinch wouldn't crack a smile as the party devolves into expected chaos.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

35% Live By Night (2017) For this viewer, Live by Night's good qualities outweigh the bad.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

83% The Founder (2017) The movie seems totally unsure how to handle [Ray] Kroc, a puzzling phantom of a character. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
42% Gold (2017) An unfunny, lite version of Wolf of Wall Street that depicts churlish men in bad '80s clothes acting like overgrown teenagers.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) For a movie that contains this much pure silliness, it's too bad it thinks it needs to talk down to kids, too.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
68% Life (2017) Life is utterly predictable when it's not being outright nonsensical. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

49% Going in Style (2017) Going in Style is far and away the worst thing [Michael Caine's] been involved with.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
Read More | Posted Aug 24, 2017
87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Charlie Hunnam is excellent as Percy, and Robert Pattinson is charming in a low-key role as his sidekick, but the film's emotional center belongs to Sienna Miller. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) [Guy] Ritchie mistakes kinetic energy for storytelling-and when the story is as age-old as Arthur, his masculine bluster is empty and exhausting.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

49% War Machine (2017) This ensemble of boys and men is War Machine's greatest strength, providing tight-knit comic timing.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

93% Baby Driver (2017) [Edgar] Wright's love letter to the American cinematic tradition of cars and guns is an undeniable blast. ‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

33% The Only Living Boy in New York (2017) The movie traffics in cliché, and will make you resent the following: New York City, dinner parties, cocktail parties, gallery openings, museums, used bookstores, writers, taxicabs, white people, apartments, rain, the entirety of the English language.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

40% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) Like a meal at the Cheesecake Factory, it is filling and unsatisfying.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
