2/4 17% The Circle (2017) Our gradual, voluntary loss of privacy is ripe for dramatization, but this movie arrives when people are actually backing up from social media.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 26% Unforgettable (2017) For a bad movie, this one is an awful lot of fun.‐ New York Post

2/4 66% The Fate of the Furious (2017) "The Fate of the Furious" begins and ends with adrenaline-spiking scenes - a drag race through Havana, an airplane brawl - that remind you why this gear-head franchise is still purring along. As for the two hours in between . . . not so much.‐ New York Post

89% The Lost City of Z (2017) By all means, go see "The Lost City of Z" - I wouldn't have missed it. But spare a thought for all the less celebrated characters in it ...‐ New York Post

2/4 44% Going in Style (2017) As creaky as its would-be bank robbers' joints.‐ New York Post

2/4 45% Ghost in the Shell (2017) With its killer-robot geishas, Godzilla-size hologram ads and nearly nude fighting gear, it's a cyberpunk wonderland - but there isn't much ghost left in this smokin' hot shell.‐ New York Post

3/4 58% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Overall, Caro seems to be making a pointed narrative choice: In the war movie genre, those who quietly tend to the vulnerable don't always get their due.‐ New York Post

2/4 68% Life (2017) For all its CGI showiness, the fact that Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal signed on for this splatterfest is the film's most impressive feat.‐ New York Post

3/4 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) If you want your old favorite dressed in sumptuous new clothes, that's what you'll get. Those who always desired a little more depth from "Beauty and the Beast" will be happy, too: There's something there that wasn't there before.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 80% Personal Shopper (2017) "Personal Shopper" doesn't have much of a plot, but if you can tune into its languid frequency, it will get under your skin.‐ New York Post

94% The Incredible Jessica James (2017) Casting makes all the difference, and Williams and co-star Chris O'Dowd bounce off each other with a sparky, sarcastic chemistry.‐ New York Post

2/4 17% The Space Between Us (2017) If Nicholas Sparks wrote science fiction, he might come up with something like this teen soap in which boys are, like, literally from another planet.‐ New York Post

40% Wilson (2017) "Wilson" has much of the same everything-sucks humor that gave Clowes' "Ghost World" such sardonic punch 15 years ago, and Harrelson has a ball delivering insults with that goofy grin on his face.‐ New York Post

80% Band Aid (2017) A rock-tinged comedy about channeling the banal conflicts of married life into musical energy.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2017
3/4 97% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) It's an effectively feel-bad story, deploying a torrent of wounded, retrograde masculinity to make uttering the word "rape" an even greater transgression than the event itself.‐ New York Post

71% The Hero (2017) Elliott's a master of understatement, and just watching him stare off into the distance, mulling mortality with a weathered cowboy stance, is true cinematic Zen.‐ New York Post

100% Call Me by Your Name (2017) It's not to be missed.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
74% Ingrid Goes West (2017) Olsen nails it as Taylor, who speaks almost exclusively in superlatives: "Ohmygod, you're my favorite person I've ever met!"‐ New York Post

56% L.A. Times (2017) Morgan writes dialogue at a pace to rival "Gilmore Girls," with a haughty vocabulary that evokes the best of Whit Stillman and laugh-out-loud zingers so frequent I couldn't scribble them down fast enough.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
31% The Yellow Birds (2017) "The Yellow Birds" mostly feels like a slightly different version of "American Sniper," not least because of its disregard for any lives lost that don't belong to Americans.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2017
100% Novitiate (2017) It's thought-provoking, occasionally melodramatic fare that should definitely garner some award nominations for Leo, who could put the fear of God into anybody.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Jan 21, 2017
76% Landline (2017) A smart and tender movie that was swept a bit under the rug by its misguided designation as "the abortion comedy."‐ New York Post

2.5/4 75% Split (2017) Unfortunately, you could probably improve "Split" by editing out everything around McAvoy and making it an experimental one-man show.‐ New York Post

4/4 88% 20th Century Women (2017) Despite being set in the late 1970s, "20th Century Women" feels like the perfect movie for this moment.‐ New York Post

3/4 95% Paterson (2016) Jarmusch salutes a life with a refreshing lack of drama.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
2.5/4 34% Live By Night (2017) It's difficult to avoid sizing up "Live by Night" as "The Town" with a classier wardrobe but less heart.‐ New York Post

1.5/4 31% Passengers (2016) There are so many points along the way when the stranded-in-space drama "Passengers," which is not a good movie, could have made different choices and become one.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/4 87% A Monster Calls (2017) The film belongs alongside "Pan's Labyrinth" in the realm of darkly creative kid-centric films that are, at their core, not really kids' fare at all.‐ New York Post

3/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) "Rogue One" is definitive proof: "Star Wars" is back, baby.‐ New York Post

3.5/4 96% Moana (2016) It's so transporting it will have your kids begging you to book the next flight to the islands.‐ New York Post

2/4 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) There's never been a better time to escape into J.K. Rowling's world of magic. Unfortunately, the cast of characters you'll find here is a pale imitation of her Hogwarts heroes.‐ New York Post

3.5/4 94% Arrival (2016) "Arrival" makes a moving case that we've only scratched the surface of what we think is possible - and what we define as intelligence.‐ New York Post

3/4 90% Doctor Strange (2016) With a mischievous, metaphysical flourish, "Doctor Strange" administers some much-needed CPR to the flagging superhero genre.‐ New York Post
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
1.5/4 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) "Joneses" never really upends its initial premise, which is that impossibly good-looking people are cooler than the rest of us. That's not comedy, that's Us Weekly.‐ New York Post

3.5/4 98% Moonlight (2016) There is so much pain in "Moonlight" that it's a little hard to breathe at certain moments. But there are others, of connection and redemption, that positively glow.‐ New York Post

2/4 52% The Accountant (2016) If you're going to make the first mainstream movie about autism since "Rain Man," maybe don't feature an anti-hero who's highly adept at shooting people in the head.‐ New York Post

2/4 33% Masterminds (2016) I cracked up here and there watching this broad heist comedy, but it wasn't laughter I felt great about.‐ New York Post

3/4 79% American Honey (2016) At 162 minutes, "American Honey" may test some viewers' patience, but for this one, it paid off with an unflinching portrait of middle America, a love letter to the open road and a dynamic newcomer in Sasha Lane.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) Sometimes, it's enough to walk out of a film with your heart warmed - even if your brain's still craving a little something more.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 76% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) Enough laughs here to merit this gaffe-filled outing with Ms. Jones.‐ New York Post

3/4 81% Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016) A wild trip with a highly unreliable narrator.‐ New York Post

1/4 15% The Wild Life (2016) Belgians may have bragging rights on waffles, but judging from "The Wild Life," their animated fare needs help.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 64% Antibirth (2016) Like its wastoid heroine, "Antibirth" is a mess - but an interesting one.‐ New York Post

2/4 71% White Girl (2016) The film's endless scenes of debauchery and exploitation don't really yield much of a take-away ...‐ New York Post

2/4 80% The Intervention (2016) Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution.‐ New York Post

3/4 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Despite a traditional-seeming quest for a suit of armor and a sword, the film's intrinsic message is all about the transformative powers of music and love. It's a movie the whole family can rock out to.‐ New York Post

2.5/4 83% Sausage Party (2016) Directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon are working with a first-rate cast, running wild with stereotypes and daring you to be offended.‐ New York Post

3/4 98% Little Men (2016) It's a no-win situation in which no one is the bad guy - a gentle, intelligent oasis in this summer of heated name-calling.‐ New York Post

3/4 77% Into The Forest (2016) Wood and Page generate a believable, prickly sibling closeness in Rozema's unhurried but harrowing micro-portrait of how easily civilization could crumble.‐ New York Post
