Monster Trucks (2017)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
"I'm recommending it, if only as a three-star action movie. But I think it's important to consider how the original Star Wars movies transcended their pulpy influences and how Rogue One gets mired in them."
Jason And Shirley (2015)
"Mercifully, it's never too pedantic (it skirts close a few times) and is often quite funny - as when she gets in digs at Andy Warhol. But the film never really gets at the hostilities lobbed at Jason."
In The Grayscale (2015)
Beautiful Something (2016)
"No writer or wordsmith or anyone who has studied language will be able to resist this film. In the eyes of Arrival, language can do more than connect disparate peoples, but change our very perspective on everything."
Flock Of Dudes (2016)
The Executioner (El verdugo) (1963)
"The satire is not demonstrative. It has its point to make, but it's going to first make you wade through a painful, sometimes frantic, sometimes funny, but ultimately grueling realist drama about getting by in life."
Doctor Strange (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)
"[The new Godzilla] might serve as a deliberate middle finger to Legendary Pictures' current efforts to Americanize a famously Japanese monster. If one has to pick a side, I side with 'Shin Godzilla.'"
La La Land (2016)
Nocturnal Animals (2016)
"An utterly fascinating motion picture, even with all of its deficiencies, that ventures deep into the difficult wilds of the artistic experience and has the audacity to be vicious once it gets there."
A Monster Calls (2017)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
The Bad Batch (2016)
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
Personal Shopper (2017)
The Immortal Story (1968)
"Perhaps Welles, in playing a man who doesn't understand art, was embodying his more vitriolic critics. He was presenting ever more complex art to critical agents, and was constantly met with confusion and literal interpretations. "
A Taste of Honey (1961)
"[There are] no weeping martyrs or brave romantic souls. It deals with real people, complete in their human complexity, their dumb choices, their damaging outbursts, their illogical desires, and their emotional honesty."
Suicide Squad (2016)
The New World (2005)
"The filmmakers are very wise to make this New World, and the people in it, seem untouched, immediate, and present. There may be a small amount of cultural foreboding, but it is heard distantly, like an echo of lamentation."
Jason Bourne (2016)
Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)
