8/10 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Laika brings another visually dazzling epic to the screen with Kubo and the Two Strings, and while the narrative isn't the studio's finest, its stylish execution and thematic heft neatly pick up the slack.‐ We Got This Covered

6/10 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Meryl Streep (of course) delivers yet another solid performance, but Florence Foster Jenkins gets a bit too lost in the balancing act between comedy and drama to emerge a bonafide winner.‐ We Got This Covered

7/10 95% Neither Heaven nor Earth (Ni le ciel ni la terre) (2016) Moviegoers hoping for a more traditional cinematic take on war may be turned off by just how quiet and contemplative Neither Heaven Nor Earth is, but those prepared for a more philosophical take will walk away satisfied.‐ We Got This Covered
