The Witch (2016)
"With so many horrible faith-based features littering the multiplex ranging from the ho-hum (Heaven Is for Real), to the inept (God's Not Dead) to the perfectly dreadful (War Room), it's nice to have one that treats its audience with respect."
"Race means well, and it certainly wants to tell Owens' story as completely as it can. Yet Hopkins and company never quite get there, the whole enterprise coming up a little short of the finish line as it lumbers its way down the track."
Triple 9 (2016)
"As for the final 20 minutes, they are a sudden burst of sound and fury signifying precious little of significance, pushing the thriller towards a frustrating final flurry of events that are as disappointing as they are unhappily inconsequential."
Gods Of Egypt (2016)
Eddie The Eagle (2016)
The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)
"It's a real world ecological thriller that doesn't forget about the human story running through the heart of the narrative, and as such the film ends up being an avalanche of thrills and chills I cannot wait to watch again."
London Has Fallen (2016)
The Other Side of the Door (2016)
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
"If Whiskey Tango Foxtrot isn't as incisive or as penetrating as it potentially could have been, for a major studio satirical look at the war in Afghanistan there's still plenty of food for thought here."
Knight of Cups (2016)
The Brothers Grimsby (2016)
10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)
Rabid Dogs (Enragés) (2016)
"While there are some eye-opening moments, not the least of which is a foray into a small town that looks like they're in the midst of a May Day celebration straight out of The Wicker Man, there simply are not enough of them."
Miracles from Heaven (2016)
Road Games (2016)
Hello, My Name is Doris (2016)
"Showalter navigating things in such a way that he's able to pay off early jokes in a way that feels cathartic and genuine, yet is still humorous, while also allowing for an aura of jovial possibility that's positively joyous."
Hell or High Water (2016)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
They're Watching (2016)
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)
Midnight Special (2016)
Eye In The Sky (2016)
Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
"The movie respects its audience in a way few of these coming-of-age comedies ever do, and while not a home run for Linklater, it's still a solid triple off the wall I'm certain to still be cheering for throughout the remainder of 2016."
The Boss (2016)
The Jungle Book (2016)
"As a movie, there's plenty here to respect. As entertainment, however, this is tough one to enjoy, all of which makes Criminal a vexing spectacle that's hard to watch all the way through to its end."
"My Golden Days isn't perfect, but much like memories of our own youth, I'm not entirely certain it is meant to be, and as such the film becomes a far more emotionally powerful endeavor because of this."
Miles Ahead (2016)
Louder Than Bombs (2016)
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
Green Room (2016)
A Hologram for the King (2016)
"Tykwer is happy to let the journey of his main character speak movingly for itself; and in the process the veteran director brings forth a motion picture I'm going to happily treasure for a long time to come."
Sing Street (2016)
"Sing Street, while not telling a tale that could be labeled as anything close to original, still crackles with an innovative vitality all its own, making its climactic leaps into the starry-eyed unknown all the more wonderful because of this."
Mother's Day (2016)
"Keanu is funny, oftentimes achingly so, watching Key transform himself from George Michael-loving suburbanite into a tough-talking thug a royal hoot that gets more and more hysterical as things move along."
"Sacrifice, while far from a waste of time, just isn't interesting enough to bother with, the only mystery being why anyone thought it was strong enough to garner a theatrical release in the first place."
