Live By Night (2017)
A Monster Calls (2017)
"Outside of its wonderfully distinct style, it's a deep observation about the power of loss and the capacity of absolute truth. "A Monster Calls" is a soulful metaphor for anyone who's mature enough and open enough to feel, think and grow"
Hidden Figures (2017)
"Uplifting, if not a little heavy handed, "Hidden Figures" is based on the true story of three very remarkable women and all three stars make the wise choice of not being stereotypical in their performances"
La La Land (2016)
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
Office Christmas Party (2016)
Nocturnal Animals (2016)
""Nocturnal Animals" delivers a slow reveal that will surely dissatisfy many, while simply turning off others in the first few minutes, but please those who hang with it and scratch beneath the surface."
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
Bleed For This (2016)
"This is another in a list of fine performances by Miles Teller, who was so good in last year's "Whiplash." Here he captures the ego of Pazienza perfectly, making a man whose boasting should make him unlikable actually become someone to care about."
Doctor Strange (2016)
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Oasis: Supersonic (2016)
American Honey (2016)
""American Honey" grew on me, much like a melancholy memory from my youth. I may not have enjoyed the experience at the time, but looking back on it I slowly begin to understand its importance and significance."
The Accountant (2016)
The Birth of a Nation (2016)
The Girl on the Train (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
"This isn't like most disaster movies where people complete inhuman feats of heroism to escape, this is blue collar men and women finding a way to survive in a scenario none of them were trained or prepared for."
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
Blair Witch (2016)
"The Blair Witch has entered the digital age. It's no longer trapped in the Circuit City video camera age with a $22,000 budget.....maybe that's why it has inherently lost a lot of its horror, charm and bite."
"Centuries from now, should movies still be being made, film historians will still be talking about Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood...if you want to introduce your little one to a true hero, introduce them to "Sully.""
The Light Between Oceans (2016)
War Dogs (2016)
"Based on a true story, the action keeps the film flowing smoothly without becoming preachy. As one of the last films of the summer season, "War Dogs" is definitely one to watch before you end your summer vacation."
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
Hell or High Water (2016)
Sausage Party (2016)
"The first half-hour of "Sausage Party" is a comedy masterpiece. With great jokes and an amazing musical number, the film delivers on all cylinders. (Then) it becomes a hit or miss comedy. And a filthy one."
Pete's Dragon (2016)
Suicide Squad (2016)
"... a wham-bam action punch with enough exuberant and unique performances to help overshadow the lacking plot structure. You'll be talking about Robbie's Harley Quinn more than you will about Leto's Joker"
Bad Moms (2016)
"It makes sense that the film is directed and written by the writers of "The Hangover" because it shares a lot of that film's DNA. Three people, mismatched at times, decide to cut loose with alcohol and dirty talk."
"Like the best laid plans of a "Saturday Night Live" inspired film, the bits only work in small doses. Exposing the girls to 90 minutes of screen time leads to a lot of hit-and-miss jokes and outrageous situations."
The Infiltrator (2016)
"We've seen "The Infiltrator" before. There are plenty of movies about the lengthy history of the worldwide drug war. But Cranston's multi-faceted acting abilities create tension and heart pounding action where there isn't any."
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
