"There is no justice in the world if Mahershala Ali does not get a best supporting actor nod for Moonlight." Washington Free Beacon

Manchester by the Sea (2016)

"Lonergan's script and direction are pleasingly subtle, studded with nice little moments that help us understand the characters and help them understand each other." Washington Free Beacon

Loving (2016)

"Nichols and the actors bring the appropriate level of gravity to a tale that calls to mind life in a police state. " Washington Free Beacon

Arrival (2016)

"Arrival is a magnificently made movie and likely the best I've seen so far this year. See it as soon as possible and on as big a screen as you can. You don't want to miss out." Washington Free Beacon

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

"Throwback war film among best, bloodiest of the year." Washington Free Beacon

Inferno (2016)

"I'm not saying Irrfan Khan should definitely win best supporting actor at the Oscars, but he should be on the shortlist for kinda-sorta saving this easily skipped picture." Washington Free Beacon

2/4 38%

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"A far inferior sequel, one saddled with bland villains and a meandering plot that tries, and fails, to get us to care about Reacher's personal life." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Oct 21, 2016
2.5/4 51%

The Accountant (2016)

"What could've been a great, fun, no-frills high-concept action flick is instead something far more mediocre and frustrating." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Oct 14, 2016
2.5/4 72%

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

"The Birth of a Nation devolved into a totem in the culture wars ... for reasons outside of what's up on the screen: an intermittently powerful yet underwhelming film." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Oct 7, 2016
3/4 84%

Deepwater Horizon (2016)

"[Peter] Berg has developed into one of our more impressive big-budget directors, tackling sometimes-somber subject matter with delicacy and without letting things get morose." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Sep 30, 2016
2.5/4 63%

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"Not quite as good as the old Magnificent Seven and certainly not as good as Seven Samurai, but ... if you're into this sort of thing, you'll like it just fine." Washington Free Beacon

Snowden (2016)

"That rarest of creatures: a boring Oliver Stone movie." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Sep 16, 2016
2.5/4 84%

Sully (2016)

"Tom Hanks is the perfect choice to play the unflappable Sully, given that he is the Patron Saint of Quiet Calm and Confidence in Crisis." Washington Free Beacon

1.5/4 92%

Southside With You (2016)

"Hagiographic retelling of Obama's first date likely to disappoint those uninitiated into his cult of personality." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Sep 2, 2016
3/4 87%

Don't Breathe (2016)

"If you're looking for something scary, this is the first great horror film of the spooky season." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Aug 26, 2016
3/4 59%

War Dogs (2016)

"War Dogs is a lively and funny flick that inadvertently makes the case for keeping the business of war in the hands of soulless mega-corporations. What's not to love?" Washington Free Beacon
Posted Aug 19, 2016
4/4 98%

Hell or High Water (2016)

"Hell or High Water is one of the best films released thus far this year. The action unfolds efficiently, alternating deftly between tense action and genuine hilarity." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Aug 12, 2016
1.5/4 26%

Suicide Squad (2016)

"Suicide Squad is an exposition dump masquerading as a cinematic experience." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Aug 5, 2016
3/4 56%

Jason Bourne (2016)

"Jason Bourne is entertaining enough, an action-packed paranoid thriller that clocks in at a trim two hours." Washington Free Beacon

Equals (2016)

"[Kirsten Stewart's] one of the most interesting actresses working today, and is worth seeking out, even on VOD." Washington Free Beacon

Cell (2016)

"Everything feels wrong, down to John Cusack's haircut: a greasy pseudo-mullet. ... You wonder if the production declined to splurge for hairdressers." Washington Free Beacon

2/4 72%

Ghostbusters (2016)

"Ironically, given all the Sturm und Drang over the fact that the Ghostbusters are now ladies, Kevin [Chris Hemsworth], a man, is the best, funniest part of the film." Washington Free Beacon

The Infiltrator (2016)

"The whole thing feels so by-the-numbers that it's hard to get too invested in the proceedings." Washington Free Beacon

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

"A bigger, dumber version of the first Independence Day stripped of its best character ... and redesigned in a lab to appeal to audiences in China." Washington Free Beacon

The Shallows (2016)

"In a summer of retreads ... it's nice to get something tiny, something new, something borrowed, something true." Washington Free Beacon

Free State of Jones (2016)

"Horror of war and the fight for freedom combine in sometimes-rousing history lesson." Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 55%

The Neon Demon (2016)

"Astute viewers will pay special attention to Abbey Lee, a model herself who was most recently seen in last year's best picture, Mad Max: Fury Road." Washington Free Beacon

Finding Dory (2016)

"As always, mid-tier Pixar is better than 90 percent of stuff out there." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 28%

Warcraft (2016)

"The film as a whole is a real mess. Not that it matters. The Chinese market is going to ensure that we are treated to Warcraft stories for years to come." Washington Free Beacon

Weiner (2016)

"Weiner is, simply put, one of the most incredible things I've ever seen." Washington Free Beacon

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

"Nothing about this film makes sense." Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 98%

Love & Friendship (2016)

"Wry and witty, Love & Friendship is one of the funniest films of the year, a costume comedy for the ages." Washington Free Beacon

3.5/4 92%

The Nice Guys (2016)

"Shane Black's R-rated, 1970s action-comedy is a welcome throwback." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 63%

High-Rise (2016)

"High-Rise is a bit of a mess, bloated and meandering. As far as meandering, bloated messes go, however, High-Rise has its moments." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 58%

Money Monster (2016)

"Far from the painfully earnest snorer that the first trailer ... promised, Money Monster is surprisingly funny, impressively acted, competently shot, and remarkably efficient." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 90%

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Despite the name on the marquee and the content of the advertising campaign, this is very much a film about Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)." Washington Free Beacon

Keanu (2016)

"[An] excellent cast papers over some of the film's obvious deficiencies." Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 91%

Green Room (2016)

"Green Room is unsparing in its brutality and unsentimental in its treatment of its protagonists. When the violence finally gets going, things get ugly, quickly." Washington Free Beacon

Criminal (2016)

"Criminal is kind of a mess, alternately dumb and dull." Washington Free Beacon

Hardcore Henry (2016)

"The filmmakers should be imprisoned for this first-person-POV crime against humanity." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 84%

Midnight Special (2016)

"Midnight Special works nicely, coming across as a lower-budgeted Close Encounters of the Third Kind or a smarter, more human (and humane) version of Tomorrowland." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 27%

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"Wildly overstuffed and oddly slapdash, filled with characters and sequences that serve little purpose other than to set up a 'cinematic universe.'" Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 72%

Remember (2016)

"Plummer himself is perfect for this role. There aren't too many others who could convincingly play a demented nonagenarian with such verve. " Washington Free Beacon

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"[10 Cloverfield Lane is] alternately hilarious and terrifying, horrifying and tender." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 46%

Knight of Cups (2016)

"Simply put: It's the most Malicky of Malick's recent films, relying on all his tricks and his tradecraft to convey a feeling rather than a story." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 26%

London Has Fallen (2016)

"Stupid but action-packed Olympus sequel entertains." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 91%

The Witch (2016)

"Robert Eggers ramps up the tension by setting his tale in a familiar-yet-foreign locale and using the natural terror of isolation to prompt chills and thrills from audiences." Washington Free Beacon

3/4 84%

Deadpool (2016)

"Ryan Reynolds, the king of charming smarminess, hits the big time." Washington Free Beacon

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"Instant-classic Coen comedy comments upon, and celebrates, the studio system." Washington Free Beacon
