19% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) Nostalgia is nice, but Netflix should just focus on making better content.‐ The Daily Dot

49% War Machine (2017) The general would be a great character in a film that deserved him.‐ The Daily Dot

30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) To that hallowed list of great expensive follies - "John Carter," "Ishtar," "Heaven's Gate" - let us ceremonially add another name: "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword."‐ Salon.com

73% Ghostbusters (2016) Ghostbusters, one of the funniest movies of the year, is so daffy and effervescent that it appears weightless, as if the film could float away at any moment. But that disguises its immense importance at a time when many felt it shouldn't exist.‐ The Daily Dot

88% Jackie (2016) "Jackie" transcends mimicry to achieve something greater - bringing the first lady's grief and resolve in the face of unspeakable loss to vivid life.‐ Salon.com

95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) The wisest and smartest teen comedy in years.‐ Salon.com

30% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) It turns out you can't do the Time Warp again after all.‐ Salon.com

A 88% 20th Century Women (2017) 20th Century Women is filled with the kinds of people you know very well or ones you would like to know. By the time the movie has reached its bittersweet, tearful conclusion, you'll want to hug the person who made it.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 80% Personal Shopper (2017) For the film's many sins, Personal Shopper is surprisingly effective and intermittently gripping. For that, credit is due to a truly phenomenal performance from Stewart.‐ Consequence of Sound

C- 83% Julieta (2016) Julieta is a reminder that even great directors make bad movies‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
A 93% Toni Erdmann (2016) What Toni Erdmann offers - in all its crushing optimism - is a chance at absolution. Running nearly three hours, Ade's film is almost overwhelming in its hopefulness, which is precisely what makes it so necessary. ‐ Consequence of Sound

45% The Girl on the Train (2016) If it came across your desk, you would probably give it a C-, along with feedback on how to improve on the next assignment.‐ Salon.com
Read More | Posted Oct 8, 2016
B+ 96% Paterson (2016) One of the director's finest to date, the film derives its unique power from the repetition of daily life, elevating the mundane to a kind of divinity.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
B+ 96% 13th (2016) If you're waking up to news about Donald Trump's latest threat to the life and liberty of people of color and you wonder how we got here, 13th has an answer for you.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
B- 95% Gimme Danger (2016) Gimme Danger checks the usual rock doc boxes, but it succeeds because of its smashing subject matter. The Stooges may not be the greatest musical act in history, but they are one of the most lively subjects for a documentary.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2016
A 98% Moonlight (2016) Under Jenkins' direction, Moonlight is both haunting and poetic, a bittersweet elegy for what could have been. His unflinching camera, which tends to follow the film's characters like a ghost, gives the film a startling immediacy and emotional power.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 71% XOXO (2016) If you share the filmmakers' starry-eyed view of EDM, you might like XOXO. Everyone else, however, is urged to buy a ticket to another show.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2016
D- 11% The Sea of Trees (2016) The Sea of Trees isn't the worst movie of the year, but it certainly isn't for lack of trying.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2016
85% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "Beyond" is undoubtedly messy, like a Starfleet ship that's taken its fair share of beatings, but it is frequently a reminder of how good the series can be when all its engines are in working order.‐ Salon.com
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2016
B 70% Café Society (2016) If a great deal of Café Society is shaggy and unfocused, it's at least pleasing in its shapelessness.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2016
C 75% Brahman Naman (2016) Brahman Naman is like a crispy Samosa with nothing at the center. The Netflix release pays homage to American sex comedies from Porky's and Revenge of the Nerds to There's Something About Mary, but lacks the heart to go along with the excess of raunch.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2016
D+ 10% Cell (2016) Given the absurdity of the premise, Cell isn't nearly as luridly entertaining as it should be. ‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2016
A 97% Love & Friendship (2016) Love and Friendship is the purest distillation of Jane Austen's work yet to grace the screen.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 13, 2016
B- 81% The Family Fang (2016) The Family Fang particularly succeeds as a showcase for Walken, who is skilled at bringing to life men of unbending will.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 5, 2016
C- 18% Special Correspondents (2016) Special Correspondents is so devoid of more meaningful commentary that it's practically headless.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted May 1, 2016
D+ 6% Mother's Day (2016) Even with a reduced cast list, Mother's Day feels both overstuffed and undernourished, filled with subplots that simply don't need to exist.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2016
D- 19% Mr. Church (2016) Although most of Mr. Church is lazy and banal, the film intermittently invents novel ways to fail.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2016
B- 44% King Cobra (2016) King Cobra never goes more than skin deep, but at least the surface is nice to look at.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2016
D 36% Wolves (2017) Wolves isn't just over-reliant on cliches, it's made of almost nothing but them.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2016
B 35% Equals (2016) Equals is composed of small, sensual moments which build to a climax that feels both gut-wrenching and potently universal, like an old torch song to which you already know all the words.‐ Consequence of Sound

C 73% A Hologram for the King (2016) A Hologram for the King belongs to a select subcategory of cinema one could call the "Meh-stige Film." These are the movies that look great on paper. They are also not particularly remarkable.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2016
D+ 64% Dean (2017) Nearly every moment in Dean is derivative of better movies.‐ Consequence of Sound
Read More | Posted Apr 22, 2016
B- 77% Elvis & Nixon (2016) Elvis & Nixon may only hint at the wounded soul underneath the velvet, but it still makes for good company.‐ Consequence of Sound

23% Zoolander 2 (2016) There's no reason the movie had to be this terrible.‐ Salon.com
