4/5 98% In This Corner of the World (Kono sekai no katasumi ni) (2017) Katabuchi's distinct method in bringing the protagonist's free-floating, over-imaginative thoughts to life through animation help turn In This Corner of the World into an empathetic and colourful picture.‐ National Post

3.5/5 86% Ingrid Goes West (2017) It's timely and relevant, given the increasing number of studies coming out that show the connection between social media use and depression in young users.‐ National Post

83% Detroit (2017) Bigelow's recent work is a cinema of big, difficult questions, but its cold treatment of trauma often leaves an empty impression, one that doesn't make the viewer understand or appreciate the moral implications of evil.‐ National Post

11% The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (2017) A movie as forgettable as Nut Job 2 will quickly disappear into the summer haze.‐ National Post

16% The Dark Tower (2017) It's a confusing fictional world to understand, and one that director Nikolaj Arcel fails to bring to life onscreen.‐ National Post

75% Atomic Blonde (2017) Theron makes Atomic Blonde stylish with her sheer presence.‐ National Post

51% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is colourful, multitudinous, often imaginative, but the lack of a hermeneutic world and internal logic lessens the stakes for the viewer to care about.‐ National Post

100% Nowhere To Hide (2017) The documentary becomes increasingly chilling, because as gruesome as the blood splatters and bombed-out wreckage appear, the Iraqis appear quite normalized given the traumatizing amount of violence.‐ National Post

22% The Book of Henry (2017) Think of The Book of Henry as a broken Rube Goldberg machine -- all the cutesy steampunk doo-dads are for naught without proper planning to make it function.‐ National Post

3/4 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) My Cousin Rachel is a damning feminist critique of the status of women in 1800s England, one that demonstrates how the impulsive emotions of men can easily influence the direction of their lives.‐ National Post

2.5/4 86% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) The zany, over-the-top tone of The First Epic Movie makes it pretty obvious that, like its protagonists, the series doesn't take itself too seriously.‐ National Post

4/5 45% Paris Can Wait (Bonjour Anne) (2017) Paris Can Wait revels in its embarrassment of riches in the French countryside, but the mature perspective of the 81-year-old Coppola gives the film an emotional gravitas and a cliché-free depiction of a middle-aged affair.‐ NOW Toronto

1/4 20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Here we are with The Long Haul - which perfectly describes the viewing experience.‐ National Post

4/4 92% Certain Women (2016) While Certain Women is focused somewhat on the nuance of dialogue and its intertwining with body language, it's a deliberately quiet and reserved little film.‐ National Post

3/4 86% The Lovers (2017) The Lovers is a frank, playful romantic drama.‐ National Post

2/4 69% The Wall (2017) The Wall may be entertaining and masterfully directed - notable traits for a tiny budget - but it has nothing to say about war survival, other than a reductive depiction of its sheer difficulty.‐ National Post

4/4 80% Colossal (2017) Colossal may not have the marketing potential to make a billion dollars at the box office, but it might just teach you something and give you a good time in the process.‐ National Post

2.5/4 86% Black Code (2016) Outside of informing us about what's happening and gently asking us to stay aware about these global issues, Black Code doesn't have much else to say. It's a trait of televisual documentary storytelling.‐ National Post

3/4 No Score Yet Perfume War (2017) Perfume War has real substance. The doc is smart enough to identify and provide compelling answers for how and why socially conscious business models are the only sustainable form of capitalism for the future.‐ National Post

2/4 51% The Boss Baby (2017) The most disappointing thing about Boss Baby is not its ridiculous premise and name, but something that Boss Baby would have surely learned in Marketing 101. Who is this movie's demographic?‐ National Post

2/4 83% God Knows Where I Am (2017) God Knows Where I Am leaves only a trace behind of a dead woman's soul.‐ RogerEbert.com

2.5/4 16% CHIPS (2017) For a dumb, R-rated comedy peppered with jokes about male genitalia, CHIPS, the remake of the '70s cop show, isn't terrible.‐ National Post

2.5/4 23% Table 19 (2017) It's not a complicated or original idea, but one that Table 19 manages to express on genuinely heartfelt terms. You can't hate a movie that courageously wears its heart on its sleeve.‐ National Post

2/4 27% Fist Fight (2017) Painful to watch, and the first half of the movie is so unwieldy it fails to deliver any punches at all.‐ National Post

1.5/4 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) The follow-up to Fifty Shades of Grey should really be called Fifty Shades of Vanilla.‐ National Post

3/4 97% The Salesman (Forushande) (2017) Like Farhadi's previous films, The Salesman consistently tries to show us the subtle difficulties Iranian women face in their day-to-day lives.‐ National Post

1.5/4 30% A Dog's Purpose (2017) By manipulating this emotional vulnerability, A Dog's Purpose has no reason to be a good movie. It can suffice by making its audience cry through the simplest and crudest of gestures.‐ National Post

3/4 44% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) For a film franchise that is, in the words of the late Roger Ebert, more "theatre of the absurd" than "action thriller," such political acuity makes The Return of Xander Cage that much more fun and hard-hitting.‐ National Post

2/5 33% Mostly Sunny (2016) While the film seems to be asking the question of whether or not Leone can make it as a "real" actress, it does not illustrate her career trajectory. This is utterly confusing for viewers ignorant of her success.‐ National Post

2.5/4 83% Julieta (2016) It's not insulting to highlight a female character's sexuality in her narrative, but the way Almodóvar does it feels tacky and objectifying.‐ National Post

2/4 40% Why Him? (2016) The casting is almost too good. The title could easily refer to Cranston: why would such a talented actor take on a humiliating, thankless role? Unsurprisingly, he nails the straight man.‐ National Post

4/4 100% Tampopo (1985) Tampopo is a thriving, celebratory and delightful classic that will leave you ravished by the end, for ramen, Asian cuisine or really, any form of sustenance.‐ National Post

2/4 50% Anatomy of Violence (2016) The message of Anatomy of Violence is an obvious one, but the film can only tell us, not show us.‐ National Post

3/4 94% Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016) It's a sheer delight to watch these two boys -- on their way to becoming men -- challenge and provoke each other, before they finally embrace.‐ National Post

3.5/4 89% Loving (2016) It's a movie so powerfully told it has the potential to act as a gateway to greater acceptance and tolerance.‐ National Post

3/4 95% Gimme Danger (2016) Gimme Danger, as incomplete and biased as it may be, offers the perfect template for Jarmusch's hyperbolic thesis. It presents a clear-headed and knowledgeable film that still knows how to have fun.‐ National Post

2/4 19% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Simply cannot keep up with the comedies it so clearly tries to imitate.‐ National Post

2.5/4 58% Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (2016) Middle School is also more than just a comedy. It tackles that very difficult subject of childhood grief - not perfectly, but not carelessly, either.‐ National Post

1.5/4 33% Masterminds (2016) Its editing rhythm and tension-building is so off-key it makes something as exciting as a vault robbery torturous to watch.‐ National Post

84% Nocturama (2017) Nocturama slowly but surely becomes a boldly explicit film that arouses the viewer's sympathies in these tragic, pathetic figures, with a shocking ending that guts a most powerful punch.‐ Movie Mezzanine

84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) The post-apocalyptic zombie film The Girl With All the Gifts has one of those allegorical ideas that is half-interesting and half-gimmicky; regardless, considering that the sub-genre has eaten itself whole, the film's worth giving a chance.‐ Movie Mezzanine

100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) Things To Come carries a surprisingly nuanced perspective on the sensibility in how to live life in spite of setbacks and discouragement of all forms: emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical.‐ Movie Mezzanine

31% The Assignment (2017) Deliciously cheesy, pulpy, and trashy in all the right ways.‐ Movie Mezzanine

92% La La Land (2016) You won't be able to stop yourself from falling helplessly in love with this over-the-top rom-com.‐ Movie Mezzanine

80% Colossal (2017) Colossal is so beguiling in its strangeness that it still works, even though it's relying heavily on its comedy to make everything work. Don't think too hard about this one, lest you find the many plot holes.‐ Movie Mezzanine

96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) This is a pretty straightforward drama and not much more. There's nothing wrong with that. Just don't expect much of a deep seabed in this one.‐ Movie Mezzanine

96% Paterson (2016) A perfect little film that doesn't need to try too hard to win us over.‐ Movie Mezzanine
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
80% Personal Shopper (2017) Personal Shopper is an uncanny mix of ghost story and personal drama that never feels, even for a moment, like it's playing into any genre conventions whatsoever -- the film is entirely its own entity.‐ Movie Mezzanine

2.5/4 65% A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016) Because the film tells her complicated story through the eyes of her son, he has to have a staggering amount of intuition. Fortunately, his childhood innocence doesn't deter the audience from understanding the nuance of his mother's struggle.‐ National Post

2.5/4 54% Angry Indian Goddesses (2015) A film that lives up to its title and delivers something rarely seen in Indian cinema.‐ National Post
