Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
"Greg Mottola has made some fine contributions to big-screen comedy - including sweet-and-salty teen flicks Adventureland and Superbad - but his new film, Keeping Up With the Joneses, is decidedly not one of them."
The Beat Beneath My Feet (2016)
Jacqueline Argentine (2016)
Hamilton's America (2016)
"TRHPS: LDTTWA suffers from suffocating staging and an utter lack of reflection on the source material -- but also from the source material itself, as what little energy it possesses is gone by a second half that turns into a real slog."
The Whole Truth (2016)
The Lost City of Z (2017)
"A rare piece of contemporary classical cinema; its virtues of methodical storytelling, traditional style and obsessive theme are ones that would have been recognized and embraced anytime from the 1930s through the 1970s."
Max Steel (2016)
"What's truly depressing about the whole enterprise is that Garcia and Bello were pulled into it. Yes, actors love to work and bills need to be paid, but perhaps a fund could be started to spare talented thespians this sort of career embarrassment."
Ordinary World (2016)
Little Sister (2016)
Amanda Knox (2016)
"So gracefully does The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Maki sidestep the formulaic mold of struggle, perseverance and simple victory or defeat that it could almost be considered an anti-fight picture."
Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016)
The Accountant (2016)
"The Son of Joseph might be filled with talk about and visual allusions to God, Biblical art, life, parenthood, filialness and relationships, but the way the material is handled is jocular without betraying the more serious ideas at its core."
"Cai's grandmother watches it unfold via an iPad, after which the artist breathlessly asks her, "Isn't your grandson awesome?" It's a beautiful, touching moment that says more about the artistic urge than any scholarly tome ever could."
The Great Gilly Hopkins (2016)
"Those singing-and-dancing trolls will likely appeal mainly to younger viewers. Older moviegoers might experience a cloyingly sticky sensation that isn't caused by the soda-splattered floor beneath their feet."
The Siege of Jadotville (2016)
"Good intentions only take us so far, of course. Whenever Smyth moves away from the battlefield, the film is on shaky ground, with the near-comical scenes involving Strong's cowardly subordinate a real low point."
20th Century Women (2016)
"Channeling the spirit of John Hughes and playing like a tween version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life delivers an easily digestible and amusing portrait of youthful hijinks."
London Town (2016)
Jean of the Joneses (2016)
"Introducing both a fresh new voice and a fresh new face to independent filmmaking, Jean of the Joneses is a crisply urbane comedy from first-time writer-director Stella Meghie, boasting a sparkling lead performance by Taylour Paige."
Dick and Jack (2016)
That Thing You Do! (1996)
Baden Baden (2016)
"That's not much of a story to build a film on, but writer-director Rachel Lang and star Salome Richard manage to craft an intriguing feature debut filled with keen observations and slices of dark humor."
The Last Film Festival (2016)
"It's all as generic and pointless as it sounds, with tyro filmmaker Nagel unable to muster up the sort of visceral thrills that a John Carpenter or Wes Craven would have been able to deliver in their sleep."
Maximum Ride (2016)
The Girl on the Train (2016)
"The puzzle of how the various personal and narrative pieces will eventually fit together exerts a smidgen of interest, but the characters are so dour and un-dimensional as to invite no curiosity about them."
Milton's Secret (2016)
The Hurt Business (2016)
Passage to Mars (2016)
Flock Of Dudes (2016)
Generation Startup (2016)
