Killer Movie Reviews
Golden Kingdom (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
"From a whiz-bang opening sequence where space folds in on itself as combatants hurl magical fire at on another, to the charismatic, ahem, marvel that is Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, this action film is a knockout."
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
The Love Witch (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
The Accountant (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
Kampai! For the Love of Sake (2016)
"Burton seems uninterested in the live-action component that Burton seems uninterested in what comes between the bouts of CGI, gifting it with lackluster pacing as his protagonists fumble easy shots and make several questionable decisions "
Operation Avalanche (2016)
Blair Witch (2016)
London Road (2016)
"hinges on the superiority of experience over theory, a soothing message in a mechanized world that relegates the human factor to a slot just this side of superfluous, but one that needed the kind of subtlety that Hanks delivers in his performance."
In Order of Disappearance (2016)
The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016)
"A high-minded film that wants us all to ponder what it means to be human. Alas, the most ponder-worthy thing in this film is wondering how Kate Mara managed to do all that running through the piney woods in those very high heels."
War Dogs (2016)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
Ghost Team (2016)
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
Sausage Party (2016)
"fails on every level but two, and those are the ones that are the most important. Do we care about what happens to our unlikely heroine? Do the increasingly dangerous dares keep us on the edge of our collective seat? Yes and yes. "
Suicide Squad (2016)
"time is pulled like taffy at the edge of a black hole, which is a fine comparison to this flick, where explosions and CGI, helicopter crashes are trapped with no hope of escape into a story that might make them worth seeing"
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"nifty and imaginative CGI, clever twists and turns, plus what science fiction can do so well, comment on the present from another perspective, not to mention taking stock of what it means to live an authentic life "
Little Men (2016)
Jason Bourne (2016)
Don't Think Twice (2016)
Café Society (2016)
"Allen returns here to one of his familiar preoccupations. That would be pondering with a mordant wit whether the universe has an order of some sort, or if it is all just chaos with nothing afterwards but oblivion."
Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
" Scrat's eternal and Sisyphean struggle both to acquire and to retain the acorn he's been chasing has, in equal parts, both hilarity and a keen commentary on the noble struggle of humankind against a basically unfeeling universe"
The American Side (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
"The most satisfying moments barely involve the humans at all. One particularly arresting sequence pits enraged ungulates against a Belgian settlement, another with hippopotami demonstrating why they are, in fact, the most dangerous animal in the jungle. "
Our Kind of Traitor (2016)
Central Intelligence (2016)
Len and Company (2016)
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
Finding Dory (2016)
