3.5/5 48% Wilson (2017) Wilson is a bitter, infuriating, and utterly unsympathetic character in Daniel Clowes' original graphic novel, but at some point [screenwriter Clowes] found a way to turn Wilson's vinegar back into wine.‐ AllMovie

2.5/5 79% T2 Trainspotting (2017) At 20 [their] behavior is Rimbaud romantic; at 40 it's a nuisance. Why won't filmmakers shrug off their "sequel-itis" and just let their iconic characters live their destinies without us anymore?‐ AllMovie

3/5 83% The Founder (2017) At any moment, The Founder can be correctly read as a celebration of American corporate ambition, or as an equally passionate indictment of it.‐ AllMovie

2/5 23% Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016) . . . some viewers will be more disturbed by the ghosts of Mantan Moreland . . . and so many others who shuffled through an entire grotesque cinematic "tradition" of black characters going bug-eyed and frantic after encountering ghosts.‐ AllMovie

3/5 52% The Accountant (2016) It's fashionable to pile on Ben Affleck, an activity that has been film criticism's favorite all-season sport for more than two decades, but [here] he reminds us once again that he is a genuine talent.‐ AllMovie

4/5 58% Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (2016) . . . a nectarous confection of anarchic wish fulfillment clothed in the trickster skin of an afterschool special.‐ AllMovie

4/5 87% Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) " . . . the triumph of director Stephen Frears' portrait of the performer, who sadly hit the wall of her own talent long before her passion ran dry, is that it never chooses . . . one pat answer to sum up the ultimate meaning of her career."‐ AllMovie

2/5 84% Star Trek Beyond (2016) Siphoning out the fistfights and exploding spaceships from its two-hour running time would leave about 30 minutes of plot, a sign that this story is essentially an overcomplicated TV episode rather than a movie. ‐ AllMovie

3/5 70% Café Society (2016) . . . kibitzing parents; the moral wiggle room of a godless world; winsome, slim-limbed ingénues; and a nebbishy, whiny, wry pseudo-narrator as the surrogate lead-haven't we gone over this before? ‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 93% Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016) There are no great thunderbolts of emotion as in Koreeda's other work, but fans of the director's more heartrending movies may appreciate this buoyant palate cleanser.‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 75% Wiener-Dog (2016) This movie is a tone poem on Solondz's usual topics: the plastic banality of American life; the casual cruelty of average, well-meaning people, [and] the crushing of innocence and joy.‐ AllMovie

4/5 98% Zootopia (2016) Even though Zootopia remains whimsical family entertainment and never turns into a polemic, at its core it has more in common with Animal Farm . . . than it does with other classic anthropomorphized Disney fare . . .‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 61% Race (2016) Despite its shortcomings, Race is still a rich, engaging, and ambitious sports biopic that does right by its true story.‐ AllMovie

2/5 68% Touched With Fire (2016) It's pitiful that Kay Redfield Jamison's important work [about bipolar disorder] has been slandered by this stupid, offensive melodrama.‐ AllMovie

4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) It's a strange puzzle box of a movie, as impenetrable in its own way as Mulholland Drive, and its slippery, shape-shifting nature defies all of the usual critical assessments, except one: It's worth seeing.‐ AllMovie

3/5 7% Fifty Shades of Black (2016) [This] movie could use at least one real gut-busting moment as a centerpiece, but the sporadic chuckles it provokes are real and deserved. ‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) As a stand-alone movie, it's enjoyable but not extraordinary. As a continuation of a franchise, it needs a "Warning: Under Construction" sign.‐ AllMovie

4.5/5 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) Director Ron Howard has created a maritime redux of his other explorers' epic, Apollo 13; both of the films are about men at the mercy of technologies that help them traverse dangerous places.‐ AllMovie

4.5/5 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) That rat-a-tat repartee between the two men is what constitutes the meat of The End of the Tour, and it's a tour de force . . . for Eisenberg [and] Segel, who is a revelation.‐ AllMovie

3/5 10% Stonewall (2015) Compared to a genuinely rousing gay-rights historical drama like Milk (2008), Stonewall falls considerably short. ‐ AllMovie

4.5/5 86% Steve Jobs (2015) Luckily, even the miscasting of Fassbender can't upstage Steve Jobs' main attraction: Aaron Sorkin's witty, nimble, and shrewd dialogue. ‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 35% Max (2015) There are life-and-death moments for both people and animals. But there are also moments of great vividity, of tearing through the woods with a dog at your side and choosing difficult honor over expedient disgrace.‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 19% The Perfect Guy (2015) The Perfect Guy might be high melodrama . . . yet despite its faults, it dresses nicely, wears good cologne, and has excellent table manners.‐ AllMovie

3.5/5 69% Sunset Edge (2015) This resolutely lo-fi and hauntingly lovely movie . . . ventures instead into the hypnagogic minimalist territory of other beautiful head-scratchers like Last Year at Marienbad or Picnic at Hanging Rock.‐ AllMovie

4/5 86% Trainwreck (2015) Audiences anticipating a feature-length extension of Schumer's standup routines, which are largely the kiss-and-tell confessions of a shameless party girl, will be pleasantly surprised by this movie's humanity. ‐ AllMovie
