Pete's Dragon (2016)
"Guatemala's active Pacaya volcano is a symbol both of ancient traditions and modern threats in this absorbing, beautifully shot film about the consequences of a peasant girl's pre-marital pregnancy."
La corrispondenza (2016)
"For all that it bounces off a lot of contentious issues about children and the internet, where Carrie-style bullying has moved into the unsupervised zone of cyberspace, Nerve frustratingly stops short before eventually falling in on itself ..."
Jason Bourne (2016)
Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016)
The Childhood of a Leader (2016)
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"The third instalment of the re-booted Star Trek franchise gets safely through its voyage, offering a strong returning cast and a familiar, if slightly tweaked mix of effects-heavy space action, cheeky humour and philosophical musing."
Garnet's Gold (2016)
Girl Asleep (2016)
"Desperately striving for the raucous, R-rated irreverence of "Wedding Crashers," "Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates" expends a lot of energy trying to convince viewers of its edgy, outrageous impertinence."
The Infiltrator (2016)
"Bryan Cranston is appreciably grizzled, but this straightforward drama doesn't have much new to say about the madness of America's drug war or the moral quagmire that comes from living a double life."
Life, Animated (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
"[It] has a highly suggestive philosophical agenda, but at the same time functions as a gripping, subtly eerie drama which keeps you guessing even while it maintains its supernatural (or theological) undertow simmering beneath the surface."
The BFG (2016)
"More a technical triumph than a full-bodied emotional experience, this family film has plenty of whimsy and heart, even though it rarely matches the visual wonders and resonance of Spielberg's earlier work."
The White King (2016)
Window Horses (2016)
The Shallows (2016)
""The Shallows" sports plenty of B-movie gusto, but this thriller never fully rises above its predictable survival storyline. That said, there are pleasures to be had in watching Collet-Serra and Lively try to wring every scare out of this simple scenario."
Kids in Love (2016)
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
Free State of Jones (2016)
Moon Dogs (2016)
Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
Teenage Kicks (2016)
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
Sour Grapes (2016)
"Rothwell and Atlas are smart enough to realise they have a great story on their hands and run with it, playing their cards with aplomb, knowing just the right of information to feed the viewer and just what to withhold for maximum impact."
Golden Kingdom (2016)
Finding Dory (2016)
"Although never challenging the original's high standing within the Pixar pantheon, this sequel showcases everything the venerated animation company does so well, providing plentiful laughs, ace action sequences and a deep emotional wellspring."
"Goldstone proves a film of harsh landscapes of the physical, psychological and political kind, and of the burdened silences and pointed dialogue of a place where people hear everything but choose to say very little."
"Formal in its construction and often favouring the calm gaze of fixed camera shots, Tikkun confirms Avishai Sivan as a distinctive voice in world cinema willing to get down and dirty with basic matters of faith. "
"Writer/director Michael Connors creates a good sense of atmosphere and clearly knows his way around the military milieu, but never manages instill the film with a much-needed sense of dramatic tension despite a solid enough story structure."
From Afar (Desde Allá) (2016)
O.J.: Made in America (2016)
"Eight hours doesn't feel like enough, and, following on from cable crime hits such as Making A Murderer, The Jinx and the podcast Serial, it crowns the long-form documentary as a true witness of the media age."
The Conjuring 2 (2016)
"Lacking some of the simplicity and elegance of the first installment, "The Conjuring 2" is nonetheless a smoothly efficient horror movie, building to a powerhouse finale rooted in our emotional connection to the film's well-drawn main characters."
"Moderately tasty junk food, "Out of the Shadows" is practically filet mignon in comparison to the indigestible 2014 reboot. Packed with better action and a smidgeon more emotional resonance, this sequel remains a rather clattering and crude affair."
Now You See Me 2 (2016)
