Special Correspondents (2016)
Tickling Giants (2016)
"Taksler, a producer on The Daily Show, shows Youssef as a warmhearted and effortlessly amusing man, and his satire is the sugar coating around the bitter truth that democratic revolution has failed in Egypt and almost every other Arab country."
A Hologram for the King (2016)
"This modest saga of a struggling American businessman on a work trip to Saudi Arabia can't break free of the cliches that are inherent to such a story, offering done-to-death life lessons about second chances and the value of broadening one's perspective."
"[Alba Rohrwacher turns] in a magnetic performance, but despite this and the director's skill at creating emotional resonance out of small things, it's not quite enough to stop the story from feeling a little undercooked."
Elvis & Nixon (2016)
"A cheeky, forgettable comedy-drama, "Elvis & Nixon" features a disarmingly off-kilter performance from Michael Shannon, but the film is so superficial and cutesy that it proscribes greater emotional undercurrents."
Adult Life Skills (2016)
King Cobra (2016)
Command and Control (2016)
The Take (Bastille Day) (2016)
"Smartly, the film uses social media and hashtags to effectively move the plot forward without resorting to images of people typing in front of a computer screen. The rest is done by Elba, charging through Paris."
All We Had (2016)
All This Panic (2016)
Betting on Zero (2016)
The Ticket (2016)
"Despite the slapdash plotting, the film - taken from the point of view of the star - gives an uneasy insight into the celebrity's co-dependent relationship with the people who make him, and can destroy him."
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
"A gargantuan entertainment that finds room for a little emotional resonance underneath the sterling spectacle, "Captain America: Civil War" is a well-paced, thoroughly satisfying, completely overstuffed action-thriller."
The First Monday in May (2016)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
"Sensitively judged, totally committed performances from Rachel Griffiths and Barry Keoghan carry a tale that edges towards Greek tragedy in its treatment of the fragile, twisted bond between mothers and sons."
My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016)
The Boss (2016)
"Trying to balance her trademark bulldozer comedic style with a little more sweetness, Melissa McCarthy gets part of the way there with this sporadically funny film that has moments of real heart amidst a formulaic redemption story."
The Adderall Diaries (2016)
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
The Jungle Book (2016)
Bei Jing yu shang Xi Ya Tu (2013)
Above And Below (2016)
Journey To The West (2014)
Lost In Thailand (2013)
Tai Chi Hero (2013)
"The second installment of Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Fung's steampunk martial arts trilogy shows an encouraging restraint in its stylistic approach and finds a much sharper focus on its storytelling."
The Assassins (Tong que tai) (2012)
The Bullet Vanishes (2012)
"Takashi Miike's live-action adaptation of the long-running anime series Nintama Rantaro is a hilarious family movie that will handsomely reward younger viewers and fans of the original, but might inevitably alienate the uninitiated."
Saving General Yang (2013)
Sleepless Night (2012)
