Posted Sep 7, 2016
7/10 60% The Light Between Oceans (2016) If you're in the mood for an old-fashioned, historical melodrama, this is a schmaltzy, sorrowful, heart-wrenching "weeper." ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Sep 3, 2016
5/10 45% Hands of Stone (2016) It's fumbling, fragmented and formulaic, despite the fancy footwork ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 29, 2016
7/10 87% Don't Breathe (2016) If you like the horror genre, this is for you. It's scary, so inhale deeply, exhale slowly - and expect a sequel. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 28, 2016
6/10 91% Southside With You (2016) Subtly sweet, a heartfelt date movie - aimed specifically at an audience that relishes fictionalized famous romances, like Jacqueline Bouvier/John Kennedy & Prince Charles/Diana Spencer. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 26, 2016
8/10 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) Visually stunning - delivering delightful family-friendly entertainment... ‐ SSG Syndicate

Posted Aug 21, 2016

Posted Aug 16, 2016
6/10 82% Indignation (2016) Admirable - but tedious - serving as a tragic reminder of the consequences of America's once-prevalent, puritanical moral conformity... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 14, 2016
8/10 86% Pete's Dragon (2016) Enchantingly earnest, perhaps the best live-action, family film of the summer.... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 13, 2016
4/10 33% Equals (2016) Flimsy, futuristic repression isn't much fun.... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 8, 2016
6/10 81% Equity (2016) Perceptively scrappy, but the corporate intrigue lacks a satisfying payoff... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 8, 2016
5/10 26% Suicide Squad (2016) How many superhero comic-book movies does it take to make you yawn with boredom? If you haven't reached your saturation point, this could push you over the edge as super-heroes are replaced by super-villains... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Aug 8, 2016
5/10 56% Jason Bourne (2016) Sacrificing emotionally engaging character development in favor of visual, kinetic action, this familiar franchise could benefit from some lower-octane fuel... ‐ SSG Syndicate

7/10 70% Café Society (2016) Wistfully vintage Woody Allen - with a jazzy soundtrack worth savoring.... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 30, 2016
6/10 59% Bad Moms (2016) Rude and crude, it's nevertheless surprisingly satiric. Its intrinsic feminism is a lot funnier than either 'Absolutely Fabulous' or 'Ghostbusters.' ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 29, 2016
7/10 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) Tragi-comic and sentimental - with superb performances - it's a poignant celebration of indulged eccentricity and pursuing your dreams. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 28, 2016
6/10 66% Nerve (2016) Playing on the ubiquitous prevalence of the Pokemon Go phenomenon, along with the popularity of horror films, this should appeal to media-obsessed Millennials... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 28, 2016
3/10 15% Ice Age: Collision Course (2016) Colorful but tepid, making one wish for a cataclysmic disaster to melt all of them.... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 27, 2016
6/10 76% Lights Out (2016) Swedish director David F. Sandberg makes an auspicious horror debut with this shady, sinister, supernatural story. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 27, 2016
5/10 60% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) The farcical BBC cult sitcom was fabulous but, as a full-length feature film, it's frothy but only fair... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 25, 2016
6/10 93% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) Slight, serene and sweet, it's a subtly calming interlude... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 24, 2016
7/10 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) In this exciting, explosive shoot 'em up, unfortunately, character complexity has become secondary to continual conflict - too much hardware, too little heart. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 23, 2016
7/10 93% The Innocents (Les innocentes) (2016) Starkly desolate, yet compassionate story - with timely relevance for women today. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 19, 2016
6/10 69% The Infiltrator (2016) A suspenseful, stylishly slick espionage thriller - a new twist on a familiar story, distinguished by authentic performances by Bryan Cranston and John Leguizamo. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 18, 2016
5/10 73% Ghostbusters (2016) A mediocre remake that turns into slime-time for female friendship. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 17, 2016
6/10 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Admittedly, Pixar's 'Toy Story' came up with the fantasy first, but this is another sweetly spirited animated adventure that should provide a 90-minute diversion for youngsters who have already seen 'Finding Dory.' ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 8, 2016
5/10 54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) Fascistic and subversive, appealing to the homicidal maniac lurking inside everyone who has ever experienced something as simple as road rage. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 7, 2016
3/10 31% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) This tedious sci-fi sequel fizzles like a soggy firecracker... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 6, 2016
6/10 71% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) Subtly stodgy, it's an engaging but ultimately forgettable espionage thriller. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 5, 2016
8/10 82% Captain Fantastic (2016) Wryly amusing and enjoyable, revealing a different kind of superhero... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 4, 2016
4/10 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) A strange, fart-filled, absurdist fantasy that's as bizarrely provocative as 'The Lobster,' yet not as engrossing.... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 3, 2016
8/10 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) Escapist and highly entertaining, this action-adventure is the best live-action Tarzan in decades... ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jul 2, 2016
6/10 78% The Shallows (2016) Scary & suspenseful, causing a feeding frenzy at the box-office. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jun 29, 2016

Posted Jun 27, 2016
7/10 47% Free State of Jones (2016) If you think you know 19th century American history, think again. This drama reveals the sordid truth about the so-called Reconstruction Era in Mississippi. ‐ SSG Syndicate
Posted Jun 27, 2016
6/10 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) Supernatural demonic spirits arise in North London, continuing the scary franchise. ‐ SSG Syndicate
