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

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

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

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

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

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

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016)

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

Antibirth (2016)

White Girl (2016)

"The film's endless scenes of debauchery and exploitation don't really yield much of a take-away ..." ‐New York Post

The Sea of Trees (2016)

The Intervention (2016)

"Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution." ‐New York Post

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

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

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

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

Equity (2016)

"Ultimately, I found the story surrounding "Equity" - that it is a movie about women on Wall Street, financed largely by actual women on Wall Street - more interesting than the movie itself, but it does contain its share of memorable moments." ‐New York Post

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016)

"On the whole, it's a pitch-perfect love letter to "Ab Fab" devotees. As for newcomers? My advice: See it after a couple of Stolis, darling, and you'll be just fine." ‐New York Post

Outlaws and Angels (2016)

""Outlaws and Angels" isn't perfect - Murray mumbles into his beard way too much - but Eastwood sure is at ease with a cowboy hat and revolver. Clearly, she's studied with the best." ‐New York Post

Ghostbusters (2016)

"Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones make a formidable comic team in their own right - though McKinnon steals the show as oddball physics geek Holtzmann (the Egon, if you will)." ‐New York Post

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

"This simple premise, spun into a caper by the canny team behind "Despicable Me" and its hyperactive sequel, "Minions," makes for a pretty amusing ride." ‐New York Post

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

Tickled (2016)

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

""Horsemen reappear in London; world holds its breath," blares a newspaper headline in this sequel, rather overestimating the world's fascination with magicians - as well as its recall of the first movie ..." ‐New York Post

Careful What You Wish For (2016)

"This erotic noir is about as substantial as one of its female lead's string bikinis, but it's an enjoyable trifle nonetheless." ‐New York Post

Approaching the Unknown (2016)

"Claustrophobic space films certainly don't have to be funny, but writer/director Mark Elijah Rosenberg fails to convey any real psychological chills either with this portrait of an obsessive adventurer banging away at his imperfect machine." ‐New York Post

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016)

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"Mostly ... it's the same old story: Bad mutants versus good mutants, with the fate of us humans - mostly off-screen, disturbingly expendable - hanging in the balance." ‐New York Post

Presenting Princess Shaw (2016)

"In this trolling-heavy era, "Presenting Princess Shaw" is a refreshingly positive ode to the power of the Internet to bring far-flung artists together and change lives in the process." ‐New York Post
Posted May 26, 2016

Maggie's Plan (2016)

"Maggie's Plan isn't perfect - the threads of its plot are sometimes a little too loosely knit - but Miller's clearly got her finger on the pulse of the New York intellectual comedy." ‐New York Post

High-Rise (2016)

"Director Ben Wheatley ("Kill List") is masterful with arresting imagery set in a dystopian spin on the '70s; less so with a compelling narrative." ‐New York Post

The Trust (2016)

""The Trust" is a so-so heist movie whose dirty-cop character's personality must have been described in the screenplay as "Nicolas Cage-esque." Fortunately, Cage was available." ‐New York Post

Being Charlie (2016)

"Good intentions aside, it fails to resonate, though there is a certain voyeuristic intrigue to attempting to figure out how much of this toxic stuff is drawn from the real Reiners." ‐New York Post

Those People (2016)

""Those People" ... suffers, perhaps, from a lack of timing; Kuhn's group of one-percenter millennials harkens back to early Whit Stillman or, more recently, "Gossip Girl."" ‐New York Post

Mother's Day (2016)

"The cinematic equivalent of a paper plate with macaroni and glitter haphazardly glued onto it, "Mother's Day" is a film only its creators could love (and even they must be having some misgivings)." ‐New York Post

Keanu (2016)

"Yes, it's basically a really long "Key & Peele" sketch, but if you were a fan of that show, this will be welcome news - and if you weren't, well, "Keanu" is a reasonably good introduction ..." ‐New York Post
