Café Society (2016)
"Unlike his earlier work or more recent gems like Blue Jasmine and Midnight in Paris, Café Society is mostly froth with little substance. But that's not to say it isn't an entertaining diversion, after all, we all want fairy floss sometimes."
Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
"It's the kind of movie that could be stomached if you were stuck at home on a rainy Sunday afternoon and you saw it on special for 99 cents on iTunes. But it's definitely not worth the price of entry at the cinema."
The Girl on the Train (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
Life, Animated (2016)
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
"Most of the time, it feels like Fuqua is just ticking the boxes of the genre conventions, which would be fine if all he was trying to do is make a run-of-the-mill Western TV movie. But this is The Magnificent Seven for god's sake."
"It's also a touch overlong and indulgent in the back half... But it is bold filmmaking, taking on a source material as difficult as Ballard's novel, and makes a decent go of building this ghoulish world so close to our own."
Bad Moms (2016)
Sausage Party (2016)
Suicide Squad (2016)
"Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie could've been a hilarious meditation on ageing, fame and the desperate human desire to be relevant, but except for a couple of rare moments of clarity, it's as shallow as Eddie and Patsy."
Jason Bourne (2016)
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"In a time... when people are being pitted against one another by virtue of their place of birth or their faith, it's the reminder we need of how the collective can work together for something bigger and better than their own immediate self-interest."
Swiss Army Man (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
"Maggie's Plan is imbued with the kind of navel gazing that will inevitably grate on some viewers without the patience for it but for everyone else, there is much to like in this engaging and sweet screwball comedy."
Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
"Despite its easygoing spirit, Everybody is tightly structured, framed by four parties and a countdown clock to the start of classes. For a movie that's pretty much about nothing, it's incredibly well-paced and never overstays its welcome."
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
"In trying to recapture the sheer entertainment value of the first movie, Independence Day: Resurgence forgot it was making a movie for modern audiences, relying on the kind of bad dialogue and plot contrivances better left in the 20th century."
Finding Dory (2016)
Certain Women (2016)
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
The Nice Guys (2016)
X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
"[Fey has] grown as a performer over the years and handled the emotionally heavy scenes in this film with a more considered and convincing approach, suggesting that one day we could see her in a (gasp!) drama."
Eye In The Sky (2016)
"Director Gavin Hood has achieved something few could -- he made what is essentially 100 minutes of people standing in rooms and staring at screens incredibly compelling. It's a master class in suspense."
Midnight Special (2016)
The Daughter (2015)
Where to Invade Next (2016)
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
"There's enough variety in the action to sustain at least four major arrangements without resorting to more boom, smash and bam. For a two-and-a-half hour movie, everything's surprisingly well-paced."
The Hunt (2013)
