Certain Women (2016)
The Hollars (2016)
Love & Friendship (2016)
"Whether debutants in New York City or landed gentry in England, Stillman is perfectly at home, delivering the same dry humor and tender observations about the affairs of the highest echelons of society."
Captain Fantastic (2016)
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
"Manchester By The Sea is a meticulous, rich film: there's such a depth to this story of a man living with unbearable grief, a sense of time and place and the changing of the seasons, you feel you could almost touch it."
Morris from America (2016)
Notes on Blindness (2016)
Dirty Grandpa (2016)
The Finest Hours (2016)
Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016)
"Fitfully amusing and certainly heartfelt, this latest chapter in the likable animated saga will work best with younger viewers, but its life lessons and emotional beats feel slathered on rather than deftly woven into the storyline."
The 5th Wave (2016)
Ride Along 2 (2016)
"With a script that's about as inventive as the title, Ride Along 2 does little more than rehash the formula that two years ago teamed Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in an amiable if unambitious action comedy."
"A sympathetic but clear-eyed character study transforms into something more insidious, sobering and infuriating in "(T)error," a superb documentary that personalizes the U.S. War on Terror in ways that make the human toll intimate and unmistakable."
Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er) (2015)
"A knockout central performance by director and occasional actor Feng Xiaogang, as a former Beijing street fighter brought reluctantly back into the urban fray in order to save his son, is the dramatic anchor of this engaging mainland genre-bender."
Ip Man 3 (2016)
"Robustly entertaining while carrying the weight of impossible audience expectations, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is a fascinating, often satisfying mixture of rollicking mythmaking and fan service."
The Hateful Eight (2015)
Right Now, Wrong Then (2016)
600 Miles (2015)
"Ripstein's direction shows little interest in the details of the plot, but is far more successful when underlining the unbearable ease of acquiring arms in any American shop and taking them over the border to Mexico."
Tales of Halloween (2015)
"The improvisational flair, quirky tonal shifts and overt emotional lurches that highlighted "American Hustle" and "Silver Linings Playbook" are here less consistently inspired and affecting, resulting in a heartfelt fairy tale that only soars in spurts."
The Revenant (2015)
"Playing a frontiersman left for dead who seeks vengeance, Leonardo DiCaprio gives a potently physical performance that, much like "The Revenant" itself, eschews nuance in the name of pitiless, cathartic drama."
Point Break (2015)
"[Point Break features] a number of impressive action set pieces... However, fans of the original will mourn the lack of memorable characters, quotable dialogue and the now-legendary central bromance."
In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
American Hero (2015)
Victor Frankenstein (2015)
Criminal Activities (2015)
Secret in Their Eyes (2015)
"The past haunts the present in unconvincing and overheated fashion in "Secret in Their Eyes," an English-language remake of the 2009 Oscar-winning thriller that fails as both a character study and an exploration of the dangers of obsession."
"A jittery character drama which mixes tones and influences, the feature debut of writer-director-editor Trey Edward Shults does a very good job of finding fresh emotional terrain in what is a very familiar setup."
"Although highlighted by Michael B. Jordan's formidable charisma, "Creed" is only sporadically compelling, resulting in a movie that never quite shakes the impression that it's a novel but not particularly necessary addition to the Rocky series."
The Night Before (2015)
"It's frustrating to watch a movie which has been so painstakingly crafted and is so extraordinarily designed and yet in which the storytelling is so sloppy, as if lost in the prosthetic and mechanical clutter on the screen."
Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015)
The Good Dinosaur (2015)
