3/4 75% Split (2017) McAvoy is having a grand time, and watching him slide from person to person is like an acting class for our benefit.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3.5/4 89% Jackie (2016) Portman's scarily composed performance is laser-focused, an act of empathy without tears.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

4/4 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) A valentine to an experienced actress who absolutely owns the part.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 74% Miss Sloane (2016) Believability is overrated, and it's much more satisfying to let go of our plausibility needs and sit back to enjoy Miss Sloane's near-supernatural powers of strategic anticipation.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 93% La La Land (2016) I believe people when they say they are moved or enchanted by the film; it just didn't move or enchant me.‐ Seattle Weekly

3.5/4 97% The Love Witch (2016) Really knows what it's doing. And it's hilariously funny, sometimes in an almost subliminal way.‐ Seattle Weekly

2/4 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) The film itself isn't awful - it packs some good lines and a few decent variations on the theme - but it can't help feeling like more of the same.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 96% Moana (2016) Doesn't fire entirely smoothly - its convoluted plot is a little hard to follow, for instance.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 60% Allied (2016) Glamour is part of the appeal - and also part of the movie's game of asking whether a pretty face could be a mask for deception.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 55% Rules Don't Apply (2016) It's a relief to see a Hollywood film that doesn't have anything to prove, or even a need to please - this feels like the least audience-tested movie in years.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Lacks the coming-of-age resonance of the HP series, but this first chapter is good fun.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
2/4 89% Loving (2016) A dour, mumbling tone poem that can't even utilize the considerable talents of its lead actors.‐ Seattle Weekly

Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
4/4 97% Aquarius (2016) Frank in its ambition to explore The Way We Live Today, but also mysterious and elusive. I've seen few films this year more fascinating.‐ Seattle Weekly

2/4 93% Arrival (2016) When it comes to a payoff for all the gauzy head-scratching, Arrival reverts to a few basic sci-fi conventions for its finish.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 98% Moonlight (2016) Jenkins ... tends to try on different modes, as though looking for ways to drape style around the story's bones.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 88% Christine (2016) Captured with real authority by Rebecca Hall, who plays Christine and is the best reason for seeing the movie.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2/4 64% The Greasy Strangler (2016) Bonkers, and destined to be an instant cult item, which raises the question of whether you can design a movie to be cult.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
3/4 83% Denial (2016) Hare's real subject is corrupted public discourse. In our time, history has become a bunch of opinions - because we all have our interpretations, right? - and expertise is denigrated.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 84% Deepwater Horizon (2016) The excitement generated by each crash is perhaps just a tad unholy.‐ Seattle Weekly

3/4 91% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) The whole thing comes across like a Swedish Gran Torino, but without the guns and gangs.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) The material might have become fodder for a standard piece of uplift, but Queen of Katwe is better than that.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 70% Operation Avalanche (2016) A cracking example of a low-budget concept done right.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 95% The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (2016) It doesn't seem to know what to include or what to leave out, so it settles for a random sampling.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

2/4 35% Blair Witch (2016) If a tree falls in the forest and only the Blair Witch is there to hear it, can anyone hear you scream?‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

3/4 61% Snowden (2016) Resembles the scene in JFK where Donald Sutherland's Mr. X calmly peels back the surface of the Kennedy assassination ... This new movie is full of that: men in expensive coats, speaking in veiled terms about who pulls the strings.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
3.5/4 73% Disorder (Maryland) (2016) Fascinatingly thorny in its depiction of a damaged protagonist.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 100% For the Love of Spock (2016) The whole thing has the air of a home-movie made for fans.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
3.5/4 85% Sully (2016) Simple but laser-focused, and it's hard not to read Eastwood's interest as autobiographical, given his reputation as a no-nonsense professional who runs his movie sets without tantrums or budget overruns.‐ Seattle Weekly

2.5/4 40% Morgan (2016) Cold around the heart. But that's what makes it work.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)

1/4 40% The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016) You may wonder whether this kid is 'touched by an angel' or 'touched by fate' or touched by some other screenwriting cliche.‐ HeraldNet (Everett, WA)
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2016
2/4 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) At a certain point the movie is grounded by its director's grave approach.‐ Seattle Weekly
