Posted Dec 3, 2016
3.5/5 87%

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

"Trying so forcefully to evoke a reaction isn't always a flaw, and pays off when the movie's second half comes around, but Gibson's indulgences are always noticeable." ‐ArtsHub
Posted Dec 3, 2016
2.5/5 51%

The Accountant (2016)

"Eschews any semblance of exploring an antisocial man in a heightened situation in favour of a stock-standard, twist-oriented action-thriller." ‐ArtsHub

2.5/5 19%

Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)

"It's the "see what sticks" type of mainstream movie-making, predicated upon little more than throwing obvious elements together." ‐ArtsHub

Train to Busan (Bu-san-haeng) (2016)

Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016)
