Priceless (2016)

"What should be a lean and taut thriller based on true stories is about as exciting as watching wet socks bounce around in the dryer." ‐

Mascots (2016)

"As hard as it is to admit, Guest's once-incisive satirical bite has grown dull in its familiarity. He doesn't seem to be having as much fun here and neither are we." ‐

Denial (2016)

"Much like Lipstadt, viewers aren't privy to the inner workings of the defense except in dribs and drabs." ‐

The Dressmaker (2016)

"Positively explodes with a surfeit of pent-up creative energy that unfortunately doesn't know when to stop." ‐

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

"This update on Bridget's always-complicated affairs of the heart is more often than not a bundle of joy to watch and a far cry from being a pail of poopy nappies." ‐

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"Florence Foster Jenkins will strike a chord with those looking for relief in the form of originality, top-tier acting and amazingly godawful singing. " ‐

Equity (2016)

"Good intentions do count even if the outcome is not perfect. Here is hoping that future productions from Broad Street Pictures prove more satisfying and offer bigger payoffs. " ‐

Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)

"It's almost as if the writers were simply using ideas left over from other Ice Age scripts that are about as fresh as the wind beneath Sid's fleas. " ‐

Right Now, Wrong Then (2016)

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble (2016)

"Much like "20 Feet from Stardom," the doc becomes a grabber whenever it focuses on the immensely skilled and unique individuals who form this melodic melting pot." ‐

Me Before You (2016)

Ma ma (2016)

The Angry Birds Movie (2016)

"Instead of elevating the Angry Birds concept to surreal heights of insane genius, the filmmakers settle for a tale bogged down by familiar themes plucked from much better films." ‐

Last Days In The Desert (2016)

Being Charlie (2016)

"Like most family affairs, the film isn't perfect but it is memorable, and provides a passable high when it is over-one that you haven't felt from a Rob Reiner production in ages." ‐

The Wait (L'attesa) (2016)

"What Messina lacks in substance in his storytelling, he mostly makes up with raw feelings. We come to care through our own powers of observation, and that might be enough." ‐

The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016)

"An account of a remarkable person should strive to be as equally remarkable as its subject, not the timid and tidy boilerplate special of a biopic that "The Man Who Knew Infinity" too often resembles." ‐

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

Hello, My Name is Doris (2016)

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)

Marguerite & Julien (Marguerite et Julien) (2016)

Touched With Fire (2016)

Ride Along 2 (2016)

""Ride Along 2" pretty much employs the same crowd-pleasing blueprint as the initial go-round: Ben and James are at odds. Ben and James must capture a bad guy. Ben blunders and James fumes." ‐

Joy (2015)

""Joy" doesn't work entirely, and the structure set up so clearly in the opening sequence is dropped early on for no apparent reason, but I'll be damned if I didn't get carried away at the story of a mop sweeping the nation." ‐

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

"Although a surprising number of plot machinations from the original film remain fully intact, usually accounting for anything that seems remotely clever, what is missing is the type of hold-your-breath tension provided by good thrillers." ‐

Pan (2015)

Partisan (2015)

"A moody drama that employs a dystopian-type premise that is not too far afield from a typical young-adult book series although with loftier aspirations and a less propulsive pace." ‐
