7/10 58% Anthropoid (2016) "Burdened by washed-out color and counter-factual Hollywood touches (like a ridiculous love affair), this still shows a faithful recreation of the disastrous assassination of Nazi monster Reinhard Heydrich in Prague, 1942. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Aug 12, 2016
3/10 26% Suicide Squad (2016) "This movie fits the formula perfectly with a fight every 10 or 15 minutes each of which defies all logic and reason. Nothing's perfect, or I would call this a perfect waste of time. ..if you have seen one of these, you have seen them all. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Aug 5, 2016
2/10 20% The Double (2011) "Richard Gere and Topher Grace say the lines and hit their marks like professionals do, but almost from the opening scene it's clear that this is a thriller that is less than thrilling. " ‐ tonymedley.com
Posted Aug 3, 2016
3/10 84% Equity (2016) "...advertised as '...produced and financed by women, collaborating with women of Wall Street, who chose to invest in this film because they wanted to see this story told,' given the quality of the result, I won't be investing in any of their IPOs. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 29, 2016
8/10 56% Jason Bourne (2016) "...an entertaining film marred by ridiculous car chases, but one does get to look at Alicia Vikander for two hours, and there's nothing wrong with that. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 29, 2016
0/10 61% Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (2016) "...annoying...hopelessly silly...cannot be taken seriously either as a parody or a satire... commands no involvement whatsoever in either the characters or the story. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 25, 2016
8/10 66% The Infiltrator (2016) "...an extraordinarily high tension tale...Even better is that the bittersweet conclusion is far from being a typical Hollywood Ending. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 17, 2016
8/10 70% Café Society (2016) "Woody Allen's clever story and script are delivered with spot-on performances by Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Steve Carell. The Los Angeles locations are filmed so lovingly that it makes one yearn to be there then instead of now. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 16, 2016
5/10 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "This is little more than what would have been a B film in the 1930s-40s, the second feature of a double bill, and it might not have even made that cut. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jul 1, 2016
7/10 95% De Palma (2016) "If you ever wonder why movies are too long, listen to a director talk about himself for almost two hours. It's interesting but I would have liked to have heard from others about what it was like to work with him, too. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 30, 2016
10/10 70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "This is the type of thriller that Eric Ambler used to write, where an ordinary man suddenly finds himself involved with all kinds of international intrigue. I loved Ambler's books and I loved this movie just as much. Stellan Skarsgärd sparkles! " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 30, 2016
0/10 51% The Neon Demon (2016) "...another bit of psuedo-stylistic rubbish by Refn...a horror film that includes graphic scenes of perversions like necrophilia and cannibalism...mind-numbingly slow...and stomach-turningly disgusting. Why it's not rated NC-17 is puzzling. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 28, 2016
7/10 91% Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words (2016) "You don't have to like Kappa's music, or even know anything about it, to get something out of this informative film which includes caustic comments about virtually everything, government, religion, the music industry, American culture, and more. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 27, 2016
9/10 30% Septembers Of Shiraz (2016) "...captures what it must be like to have your life suddenly turned around into total chaos, the hopelessness, the helplessness, and the despair that descends when thrown into a dungeon where people all around you are being executed on a daily basis. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016
8/10 66% Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016) "Jacquot expertly combines the mores of the 1900 novel and the mid-20th Century films with today's world and the result is a thought-provoking film that leaves the viewer contemplating what they have just seen. Seydoux is outstanding. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 15, 2016
2/10 48% Genius (2016) "...a drab, dark, slow movie with absolutely no chemistry between or among any of the players...the color so washed out that it might as well have been in black & white. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 10, 2016
7/10 77% Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016) "...while it admirably mocks the sounds rap musicians try to foist off as 'music,' and 'lyrics,' ...there are far too many F bombs...but the production values are of high quality, the rap music almost agreeable,...and the film reasonably enjoyable. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jun 7, 2016
8/10 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "Writer/director Shane Black is back with another Private Eye flick and this is a good one...overcoming a byzantine plot that never really does make any sense with a witty script, fine acting and directing, and terrific cinematography . " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 27, 2016
8/10 86% Maggie's Plan (2016) "This is a complex film about a protagonist, Maggie Hardin (Greta Gerwig), who views herself as an honest person who feels she deals with life ethically. Who was it who said that women are inscrutable? " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 20, 2016
0/10 62% Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) "...vulgar, disgusting, tasteless drivel. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 18, 2016
8/10 57% Money Monster (2016) "This is either a spoof or a devastating attack on those charlatans on TV who spout all they know about investing in stocks and bonds, which is basically nothing. It's well directed and acted and has the required tension throughout. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 17, 2016
8/10 90% A Bigger Splash (2016) "...even though it is a lot of talk, there is an underlying tension constantly onscreen that the characters are cascading towards something bad. Particularly effective is Dakota Johnson who creates an extremely disturbing femme fatale. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 5, 2016
5/10 90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "This is a stark example of what movies have become, which is intellectual diarrhea...there is no acting...just one ridiculous fight after another between and among people who are more or less invulnerable. But, get used to it. This junk makes money. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted May 5, 2016
7/10 62% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "Despite grossly misrepresenting many facts, this is an interesting, well-acted movie. Too bad they felt they had to put Hollywood twists into a story that would have been better told had they stuck with what actually happened. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 30, 2016
2/10 7% Mother's Day (2016) "Gary Marshall has apparently morphed from comedic movie director to rabbi, because this preaches a plethora of politically correct Hollywood Values with not one laugh in sight. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 29, 2016
5/10 95% The Jungle Book (2016) "10/10 for 7 year olds, but while the special effects are spectacular and beautiful, it's a cartoon and how can any adult sit still through this for 2 hours? Save me from any cartoon that lasts much longer than 7 minutes. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 25, 2016
0/10 84% The Meddler (2016) "First the good news. This does, in fact, end...even though you might feel terminally trapped in this politically correct drivel.The only good things are J.K. Simmons who is in it for about 10 minutes and Juice Newton singing 'Angel of the Morning.' " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 23, 2016
7/10 17% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "It's all a bunch of nonsense, but the production values are high and the forests are enchanted, the special effects...are good, and the story is told with a wink and a lot of light-hearted touches, so there's nothing to get too upset about. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 22, 2016
10/10 89% Fastball (2016) " I've seen lots of baseball clips but there are clips in this film I've never seen, including some fine clips of the legendary Walter Johnson. But there's a lot more to it than that.This is a film that no baseball fan should miss. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016
7/10 31% Criminal (2016) "If you can accept the premise, which I was able to do, this is a tense sci-fi chase thriller with a fine cast, exceptional cinematography, and good pace. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 15, 2016
1/10 22% The Boss (2016) "The team of McCarthy/spouse as auteurs threatens to give nepotism a bad name...there's good news and bad news. The good news is that it's only 90 minutes long; the bad news is that it is 90 minutes long. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 8, 2016
1/10 73% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle says, 'I had no interest in making another biopic since I found them full of contrivances and fabrications. You know, 'based on a true story'.' So he makes a biopic full of contrivances and fabrications and fictional characters. What a waste! " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Apr 3, 2016
10/10 No Score Yet Joan Rivers: Exit Laughing "This story of Joan Rivers (one of very few comedians who could make me laugh uncontrollably) is told both by herself and her fellow comics with insight and lots of humor and clips. I'm sorry I can only give it a 10. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 30, 2016
5/10 21% I Saw the Light (2016) "...huge mistake in minimizing the great music and in allowing Hiddleston to sing the songs himself instead of lip syncing to Williams' unique voice...then for 'Lovesick Blues,' they use Emmett Miller's voice instead of Hank's! How stupid can you get? " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016
7/10 84% Midnight Special (2016) "The ending would appeal to Alain Resnais, who directed the puzzling 'Last Year at Marienbad'. But what do you do with a sci-fi movie? Oh well, it's finely directed and acted, and it's entertaining so that's all that matters. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 19, 2016
7/10 83% Hello, My Name is Doris (2016) "If this film had come out near the end of the year, I think that Field would be up for another Oscar (R). What she conveys in her eyes and facial expressions are what make the film a grabber. I think you'll "really like her!" " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 11, 2016
10/10 95% Eye In The Sky (2016) "Seems like a remake of Gable's 'Command Decision' updated for the 21st Century. The tension crackles as time is a-wastin' while everyone passes the buck. This is exceptionally realistic with a top flight performance by Helen Mirren in Gable's role. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 11, 2016
3/10 26% London Has Fallen (2016) "...a script filled with hackneyed dialogue...automatic rifles that shoot thousands of bullets without needing reloading...filmmakers without the courage to identify Islamic Jihadists as the bad guys. How many more times will we have to see this? " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 4, 2016
9/10 68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "...deftly mixes comedy with adventure and romance to make this an extremely well-rounded film. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Mar 4, 2016
3/10 23% Crazy About Tiffany's (2016) "...a display of highly offensive conspicuous consumption by some snooty ladies who wear their privilege at the end of their stuck up noses. Frankly, until the last ten minutes I had a hard time staying awake. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Feb 26, 2016
8/10 80% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "This is a touching true story of a nerd who became an Olympics hero with a smashing performance by Taron Egerton and terrific skiing photography. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Feb 26, 2016
5/10 61% Race (2016) "...too long, too slow, has clumsy recreations of the sporting events, has an actor who doesn't reflect Owens' pleasing personality, and replaces facts with Hollywood fiction...Jessie Owens deserves better. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Feb 19, 2016
0/10 84% Deadpool (2016) "Even though Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool is strikingly reminiscent of Stephen J. Cannell's appealing anti-hero PI James Rockford, this is just another superhero movie filled with boring sameness. How many times can one sit through the same thing? " ‐ tonymedley.com
Posted Feb 14, 2016
7/10 86% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Not uproariously funny, still the Coens did a superb job of creating a parody that captures the ambience of the era with a light hearted, comedic touch. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Feb 9, 2016
8/10 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "...fine special effects and high tension with good performances...lags during the final ten minutes when the mood, exacerbated by the music, becomes maudlin. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jan 30, 2016
9/10 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "...graphically captures all the dangers, gun fighting, bombs, and the uncertainty of the fight because it was all done in the dark of night by heroic independent contractors who have been ignored, even dissed, by the Democrats responsible. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jan 20, 2016
3/10 15% Ride Along 2 (2016) "(Hart's) silliness is so annoying it's excruciating to sit through. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jan 18, 2016
6/10 60% Joy (2015) "If this is a comedy, I'm Babe Ruth. The title should have been "misery," because that's what it is to sit through...the denouement is über unrealistc, even for Hollywood...This picture proves that a great cast a great movie does not necessarily make. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Jan 1, 2016
9/10 72% The Salvation (2015) "in the grand tradition of Sergio Leone and his Spaghetti Westerns set in the American Old West but shot in Europe...enriched by a fine score by Kasper Winding that keeps the tension at a fever pitch with fine performances by Mads Mikkelson and Eva Green. " ‐ Tolucan Times
Posted Dec 29, 2015
3/10 61% Concussion (2015) "a slow, boring movie devoid of pace.The callous NFL needn't worry about this film not only because it takes pains not to lay a glove on them, but because it is so unentertaining...acting honors go to Albert Brooks who keeps the film alive, barely. " ‐ Tolucan Times
