Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
The Get Down: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
BoJack Horseman: Season 3 (TV, 2016)
"While comically skewering the excesses of the anti-hero genre, the show's melancholy emotional pull and layered moral landscape also offer a chance for this devalued TV trope to regain some of its power. "
Suicide Squad (2016)
Captain Fantastic (2016)
Bad Moms (2016)
Jason Bourne (2016)
"Without the story arc of the original trilogy, it all feels gratuitous. This is a movie that seeks to indulge an audience hungry for a specific style of action, as opposed to serving a compelling narrative. "
Café Society (2016)
"The film manages a slight melancholy tug, and Woody's recent tendency to stop suddenly actually works here, underlining the characters' impossible romantic dilemmas. But the script is often lazy and listless. "

Now You See Me 2 (2016)
"The story involves tricks and illusions, bluffs and double-bluffs, turnarounds and reverses, to the point where the unpredictable becomes weirdly predictable. Basically, you know that whatever seems to be happening probably isn't. "
A Bigger Splash (2016)
Cemetery of Splendor (2016)
"Alice Through the Looking Glass provides answers to questions no one asked. Along the way, it reduces some of the more beloved characters -- the Rabbit, the March Hare, Tweedledee and Tweedledum -- to little more than celebrity cameos. "
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
"Joe and Anthony Russo effectively hit the pause button on the Avengers franchise to address the human cost of "collateral damage," while still delivering the impressive action we've come to expect from the Marvel franchise. "
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)
Sunset Song (2016)
Sing Street (2016)
The Meddler (2016)
Sleeping Giant (2015)
"While the story is about teens, it isn't made for teens. In fact, Sleeping Giant should probably be watched only by adults, who can look back knowing they somehow managed to live through those confusing, difficult, sometimes dangerous years. "
Game of Thrones: Season 6 (TV, 2016)
"The hour-long season opener delivered a few minor surprises and emphatically bloody demises but mostly went very efficiently about the business of setting the stage for the mayhem that will inevitably follow in the weeks and episodes to come. "
