2.5/4 40% Justice League (2017) A turgid film that thinks it's more important than it really is bringing together characters that haven't been given much in the way of individual support so far, making them feel tacked-on.‐ Cinema Sight

3.5/4 88% The Lobster (2016) Not just Colin Farrell's best performance, but a film that reminds us what a contrivance marriage and relationships can be when mandated by societal pressures.‐ Cinema Sight

3.5/4 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) What a marvelous foray into the world of J.K. Rowling. Its period setting helps set it as an astute parallel political commentary while the progressive undertones make for a more enjoyable experience.‐ Cinema Sight

3/4 96% Moana (2016) A song score that's far weaker than the great animated musicals of the 1990s, this Disney princess film has all the charm one would expect from the Mouse House, without the feeling of urgency.‐ Cinema Sight

2/4 57% Rules Don't Apply (2016) If not for the performances, including a pair of engaging leads, the film would suffer from an overburdened reliance on dated tropes.‐ Cinema Sight

3/4 85% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) This is a Star Wars film for fans, not casual observers. It has plenty of nice touches that bring back fond memories of the original and may well be the best Star Wars films since the original trilogy.‐ Cinema Sight
