The Wailing (Goksung) (2016)
"Na Hong-jin's spellbinding and scatterbrained new film is 156 minutes of demented occult nonsense that gradually begins to feel less like a linear scary story than that it does a ritualistic invocation of the antichrist. "
All the Way (2016)
The Angry Birds Movie (2016)
"Maybe at this point it's too much to hope for an animated film like The Angry Birds Movie to exist as anything other than marketing fodder, but hopefully it's not too much to ask for that #content to have a shred of substance to it."
The Neon Demon (2016)
"This grotesque, hyperstylized treatise on the fashion industry recaptures some of the zany images and B-movie abstractions of Refn's crossover effort, "Drive," though it never quite gels on the same level of inspiration. "
Welcome To Happiness (2016)
"Bad movies are a dime a dozen, but the truly pitiable ones are few and far between. Oliver Thompson's debut is spellbindingly awful, but most of it is touched with a guilelessness that makes it difficult to hate."
Ma ma (2016)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)
The Nice Guys (2016)
The BFG (2016)
Last Days In The Desert (2016)
"At a time when cynical, pandering 'faith-based' movies have gained an extraordinary foothold at the box office, it should be exhilarating to see a genuinely provocative movie about the trials and tribulations of Jesus Christ. It isn't."
Sunset Song (2016)
Café Society (2016)
Presenting Princess Shaw (2016)
Search Party (2016)
"This is safe, hyper-conventional stuff, lazy enough to make you feel bad that Middleditch had to go nude for it. The best thing you can say about the movie is that men have taken their pants off for less. "
X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
"It's a messy romp that's funny, hot, and horrifying in equal measure; and if it squeaks a bit whenever it tries to shift gears, that sound just becomes another instrument in Guadagnino's latest symphony of the senses. "
"Represents everything that makes Audiard one of the most exciting forces in contemporary French cinema. It's almost too perfect a fit for a filmmaker who exclusively tells stories about people who suffer their way to freedom."
Always Shine (2016)
Being Charlie (2016)
Term Life (2016)
The Family Fang (2016)
The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016)
Ratchet & Clank (2016)
"So profoundly bad that it represents the worst of two entirely different mediums, Ratchet & Clank doesn't blur the line between movies and videogames so much as it flushes them both in a toilet and watches as they swirl together down the drain."
Mother's Day (2016)
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Special Correspondents (2016)
The Meddler (2016)
"The charm of "The Meddler" isn't the kind that benefits from big pushes forward in narrative or massive plot movements, but it revels in heart-warming humor, vibrant characters and what's clearly a deep affection for its story."
A Hologram for the King (2016)
Elvis & Nixon (2016)
"What's most admirable about the film is the person who's been pushing for its creation the longest. Kerry Washington brings a beautifully reserved presence to Hill without stripping her of any bravery."
"Seeing how visionaries new and old foster an idea of things that go bump in the night is what keeps viewers coming back for more, and when anthologies add as many twists as Holidays, aficionados are always ready for the next installment."
Sing Street (2016)
Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)
"A standout at Cannes 2015 (where Lindon deservedly won the prize for Best Actor), Brizé's ode to the working stiff is a sobering corrective for anyone who's ever said 'It's not personal, it's just business.'"
The Adderall Diaries (2016)
The First Monday in May (2016)
"Anyone intrigued by the fashion world will gain some understanding of the power players involved in this seminal showcase, which mostly just salutes their accomplishments using competent techniques."
"An elegant, brooding drama with a sprawling international cast, the movie presents its haunting premise with barely any explanation, leaving viewers to steadily make sense of the chaos along with the confused protagonists."
The Invitation (2016)
