The Founder (2017)
"It's not the feel-good movie of this (or any) year, but it's clear-eyed and concise -- as well as important and informative. Perhaps it's no coincidence it received its national rollout on the same day the ultimate capitalist pig took the Oval Office."
xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017)
Live By Night (2017)
"There's nothing inherently wrong with Ben Affleck's warmed-over plate of gangland goulash -- it's a gorgeous production, meticulously put together by a team of seasoned Hollywood vets -- but there's also little that's fresh."
Sing Street (2016)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
A Monster Calls (2017)
Hidden Figures (2017)
Why Him? (2016)
Assassin's Creed (2016)
La La Land (2016)
"As effervescent as the finest bottle of champagne, La La Land is an intoxicating motion picture that should particularly please anyone whose heart skips a beat whenever Fred dances on the late show or Judy sings on TCM."
Collateral Beauty (2016)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
"While Rogue One never comes close to matching the heights of the series at its most dazzling (basically, Episodes IV and V, with honorable mention to Episode VII), it's still a worthy addition to the canon."
Office Christmas Party (2016)
Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
"While the foul language, misanthropic attitude, and cynical performances still come into focus, even squinting might not pick up much in the way of the first film's clever plotting, genuine wit, and sneaky subversive streak running throughout."
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
"Better than Finding Dory but not quite reaching the level of Zootopia, the latest Disney animated effort of 2016 adheres pretty much to the formula we've come to expect in recent years from the storied studio. "
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
"A motion picture that turns out to be far more focused on humanity than on otherworldly visitors, it's a transcendent viewing experience that gets under the skin and into the heart. As a bonus, it's also the right movie at the right time."
Doctor Strange (2016)
"Rote storytelling and pesky politics aside, the film does offer its rewards, particularly in Cumberbatch's fine performance, some twisty visuals (many cribbed from Inception), and the occasional dabs of gentle humor."
On Dangerous Ground (1952)
Bobby Deerfield (1977)
9 to 5 (1980)
"One of Stallone's better efforts. Besides, where else can one find the screen being shared by the who's-who gallery of Rocky Balboa, Lando Calrissian, Roy Batty, the Bionic Woman, and the bald lady from the first Star Trek film?"
