Red Dog: True Blue (2016)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Sand Storm (Sufat Chol) (2016)
Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016)
"Your Name is a cluster of films all intertwined -- teen comedy, rural drama, and that comet passing by overhead can't be good either -- and Shinkai's energetic style and vivid backgrounds make it a constant delight to watch."
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
Boys in the Trees (2016)
"Verso packs his film with memorable moments, but often they feel like they're simply stacked one atop the next without any dramatic drive or progression. But that's how being a teen feels like sometimes."
The Founder (2017)
"[Hancock has] cast the film with splendid actors who can handle that kind of breezy energy. It's never laugh out loud funny, but we're invited to enjoy Kroc as a rascal, not a villain... almost til the end."
Heart of a Dog (2015)
Certain Women (2016)
"Reichardt operates as usual a specific sort of advocate for her characters, applying close, sustained, and considered attention to their predicaments, and in the process evening the balance of the individual with her surroundings."
Doctor Strange (2016)
"The best thing about Raiders the doco is the way it penetrates the cute feel-good story of the Guys so often re-told in news clips and magazines in order to uncover a painful story of adolescent angst, divorce, familial abuse and drug addiction."
Joe Cinque's Consolation (2016)
I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
The Girl on the Train (2016)
"Blunt manages to give her sad and messy character some humanity through smudged mascara and puffy lips, but the mechanical screenplay by Erin Cressida Wilson doesn't give her -- or the others -- much room to develop beyond ciphers. "
Blair Witch (2016)
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
"In their few scenes together, Hawke and Washington, so vital in Fuqua's Training Day, hold the screen with sheer chemistry, and perhaps a bit of history. If only this film had known what to do with the richness of its raw material."
Queen of Katwe (2016)
Spin Out (2016)
Don't Breathe (2016)
Girl Asleep (2016)
"[The] characters are so charming and funny, and the stylistic excesses handled with such aplomb, that this film (directed by theatre-maker Rosemary Myers in her feature film debut) is a fresh-faced delight with all the makings of a local crowd-pleaser."
My Scientology Movie (2017)
"For a more comprehensive and sober exposé, see Alex Gibney's Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, but Theroux's film works well as an entertaining and thought-provoking companion piece."
Louder Than Bombs (2016)
Down Under (2016)
Suicide Squad (2016)
"David Ayer devotes the film's first hour to telling us how bad these crazy mofos are ("the most dangerous people on the planet"; "bad guys"; "worst of the worst"), but then spends the next hour (...and 10 minutes) trying in vain to make good on the promise."
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
Golmaal 3 (2010)
"This is, essentially a broad appeal, 'comedy for everyone', but what's intriguing about it, is the way Shetty and co. have fashioned a moral about the importance of family harmony, and the need to belong."
Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011)
Ferrari Ki Sawaari (2012)
7 Khoon Maaf (2011)
Bol Bachchan (2012)
"The energy, the performances, the comedy, the story rhythms, production and styling, and the sheer manic craziness takes hold from the get-go and does not let up over its nearly three-hour running time."
The Fits (2016)
"The limited locations, lack of adult characters and the fact we never see the kids at home effectively creates a socially contained world with its own rules and consequences. Then there's Royalty Hightower's knockout lead performance."
Blood Father (2016)
