2.5/4 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "It's just a shame the end of the movie wasn't lurking around the corner far sooner than when it finally turned up, by which time a considerable amount of my emotional investment in the film had been exhausted. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016
3.5/4 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "Front and center, carrying the film, is Samberg in what is easily the most winning film performance of his career. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Jun 2, 2016
2/4 58% Me Before You (2016) "Me Before You is a beautifully filmed and well-intentioned weeper marred by an unfortunate performance from one of the leads, and a plot development that leaves us more angry and frustrated than moved in the final act. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Jun 2, 2016
3.5/4 96% Weiner (2016) "You can't look away, but it's almost painful to watch. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 27, 2016
3.5/4 86% Maggie's Plan (2016) "I love movies like this. Movies where we eavesdrop on smart, self-involved, deeply flawed and consistently interesting people." ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 26, 2016
3/4 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Even the hardcore geeks who like to get their Comic-Con on might be feeling a little superhero fatigue right about now. Still. You owe it to yourself to see Quicksilver do his thing. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 26, 2016
1.5/4 30% Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) "The attempts at sentiment are heavy-handed. The Mad Hatter has Daddy Issues. Alice has Mommy Issues. The Red Queen has Sister Issues. Ugh. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 26, 2016
3/4 90% The Lobster (2016) "Farrell absolutely kills it as David. Weisz gives one of her best performances since her Oscar-winning turn in The Constant Gardener. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 20, 2016
3.5/4 87% All the Way (2016) "Director Jay Roach turns Robert Schenkkan's acclaimed Broadway play into an engrossing, powerful if slightly overcrowded movie that works as a biopic of LBJ and as a time capsule of a crucial period in the civil rights movement. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 20, 2016
3.5/4 98% Love & Friendship (2016) "Love & Friendship has the air of one of those movies where you sense the actors had the time of their lives on the set, what with getting to wear the garb of the time and reciting such sublime dialogue and performing such exquisitely choreographed scenes. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 20, 2016
3/4 83% Hockney (2016) "A rich if occasionally slight bio of one of the most well-known artists of the last half-century. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 20, 2016
3/4 92% The Nice Guys (2016) "Crowe and Gosling save the day. They both look like hell for most of the film, with neither actor demonstrating a wisp of vanity as they throw themselves into this cheerfully nasty mess. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 19, 2016
1.5/4 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "I couldn't wait for this movie to end. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 19, 2016
1.5/4 27% How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town (2016) "Despite its provocative title, How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town isn't particularly sexy. More troubling, it's not very funny either. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 12, 2016
3.5/4 61% The Trust (2016) "Wood and Cage have a terrific dynamic together. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 12, 2016
2.5/4 23% Being Charlie (2016) "Better remembered as the vehicle to healing for the family than a movie that made an impact. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 12, 2016
2.5/4 63% High-Rise (2016) "High-Rise keeps hammering home the same points, and not even the wealth of strong performances from Hiddleston, Miller and Irons are enough to salvage the day. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 12, 2016
3.5/4 58% Money Monster (2016) "Sometimes very funny and occasionally legitimately tense. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 12, 2016
3.5/4 86% Francofonia (2016) "As Sokurov examines a pivotal point in the Louvre's history and gives us a virtual tour of the magnificent museum, he makes larger points about the vital importance of art throughout human history. This is one of the most beautiful films of the year. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 5, 2016
3.5/4 77% Elstree 1976 (2016) "A sweet, quietly funny, fascinating and contemplative study of 10 character actors and extras, none of whom had any idea back in the 1970s they'd forever be defined by the one or two days they spent on the set of a sci-fi movie. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 5, 2016
3.5/4 79% The Family Fang (2016) "Even when The Family Fang stretches credulity, we stay with it. Bateman knows how to tell a story. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 5, 2016
3.5/4 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "Kudos to co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo and the team of writers for juggling more than a dozen comic-book characters and nearly that many plot lines, and only occasionally getting us (and by us I mean ME) lost in the Geek Weeds. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted May 3, 2016
3.5/4 84% The Meddler (2016) "Taken as a whole, Sarandon's performance is something to behold. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 29, 2016
0/4 7% Mother's Day (2016) "Like just about everything else in Mother's Day, the nod to the earlier movies are clumsy and pointless and obvious. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 28, 2016
3.5/4 80% Confirmation (2016) "Save for a few scenes that feel like overkill just to give us a little bit more intrigue and suspense, Confirmation feels true to the spirit of the events, which were bizarre, unsettling - and undeniably entertaining. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3.5/4 91% Green Room (2016) "This is one smart chiller. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3.5/4 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Elvis & Nixon is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen this year - a whip-smart slice of strange history bolstered by pitch-perfect period-piece references, two excellent, offbeat performances and a brisk sense of pacing. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
3.5/4 71% A Hologram for the King (2016) "Writer-director Tykwer skillfully presents a series of fantastical scenes in a way that has us thinking: Sure, that could happen. This is quite simply a beautiful film to behold. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 19, 2016
2/4 19% The Adderall Diaries (2016) "The Adderall Diaries comes across as an incomplete jumble of colliding plot lines. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 14, 2016
3.5/4 90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) "Just about everything else clicks, thanks in no small part to the wonderful performances from the deep cast. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 14, 2016
1/4 30% Criminal (2016) "Given the lurid, stupid, loony and unintentionally laughable nature of this espionage thriller, I found some measure of entertainment studying the vastly different approaches taken by Costner, Jones and Oldman. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 14, 2016
3.5/4 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "Thanks to director Jon Favreau's visionary guidance and some of the most impressive blends of live-action and CGI we've yet seen, The Jungle Book is a beautifully rendered, visually arresting take on Rudyard Kipling's oft-filmed tales. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 12, 2016
2/4 71% Remember (2016) "Atom Egoyan's bold but often ludicrous Remember plays a like a mash-up of The Terminator, Marathon Man and Memento, as filtered through the lens of an old Twilight Zone episode. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
1/4 22% The Boss (2016) "It's just early April, but I have an early contender for the most loathsome, ill-advised, horrible executed, most spectacularly unfunny movie scene of the year. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
1.5/4 53% Demolition (2016) "This is one of those movies made by smart people about smart people that gives the audience no credit. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3/4 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "In a rousing, beautifully shot closing sequence, Davis shares the stage with modern-day jazz musicians. Like most of the film, it's a bit loopy and a bit trippy, but pretty damn cool as well. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016
3.5/4 84% Midnight Special (2016) "It's refreshing to find yourself immersed in a film that zigs and zags between genres -- and occasionally zaps your senses with an electric charge of shock and awe. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
4/4 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Richard Linklater's non-sequel of a sequel to Dazed and Confused has pitch-perfect tone. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3/4 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Even when I Saw the Light is giving us standard-issue concert scenes or simple interior sequences such as young Hank and his band playing live on the radio, the saturated colors and the subtle camera moves make every scene pop. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 31, 2016
3/4 5% Get a Job (2016) "The imperfect work mired in storage all this time gets a well-deserved spin. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3/4 28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) "Vardalos is wonderful, and 88-year-old Michael Constantine casually pockets every scene he's in. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
3/4 27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "When it sings, Dawn of Justice is a wonder. When it drags, it still looks good and offers hints of a better scene just around the corner. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 22, 2016
2/4 82% Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016) "Pee-wee is still a startling and original and strangely endearing creation. He just deserved a funnier, more intriguing holiday. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 18, 2016
3/4 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Mr. Rickman was never nominated for an Academy Award and it's probably a long shot for a posthumous supporting actor for this film -- but his work here is a reminder of what a special talent he possessed. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 17, 2016
2/4 33% The Bronze (2016) "The problem with The Bronze isn't that Melissa Rauch's Hope Ann Gregory is such a nasty, foul-mouthed, terrible little human being. It's that she's not as funny as the film thinks she is. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 17, 2016
2/4 46% Knight of Cups (2016) "A ponderous affair, never taking 30 seconds to make a point when four minutes is available. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 10, 2016
1.5/4 26% London Has Fallen (2016) "Like the original, London Has Fallen features a top-notch cast and some crackling good action sequences. And, alas, like the original, this is a cliché-riddled, aggressively violent, laughably plotted exploitation flick. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 3, 2016
3/4 68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "If this role isn't remembered as THE signature moment when we came to think of Tina Fey as an award-level dramatic actor as well as an iconic comic force, it's a substantial step in that direction. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 3, 2016
4/4 98% Zootopia (2016) "Zootopia is one of my favorite animated movies. Not one of my favorite animated movies of the last year or two, or of the last decade, or in recent memory. It's one of my favorite animated movies, period. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Mar 2, 2016
4/4 93% The Last Man On The Moon (2016) "This is a great documentary about a great man. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
Posted Feb 25, 2016
3/4 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Director Dexter Fletcher paints Eddie's story in broad, bold strokes, never missing an opportunity to milk a suspenseful dramatic turn or go for the relatively easy laugh -- but it's a style well-suited to this wonderfully ridiculous story. " ‐ Chicago Sun-Times
