Amateur Night (2016)
Nine Lives (2016)
Suicide Squad (2016)
"Positioned as a hell-raising alternative to normal comic book fare, "Suicide Squad" doesn't maintain the illusion, consuming genre sameness as Ayer takes a punk rock concept and turns it into a bland, mainstream extravaganza."
Don't Think Twice (2016)
Five Nights in Maine (2016)
"Just watching these two spar in "Maine" would be enough to satisfy, but Curran has prepared something special, transforming a simple tale of reconnection into a labyrinth of surging, confusing emotions."
I Am JFK Jr. (2016)
"Murray achieves a sense of John F. Kennedy Jr. as a human being, and a fallible one at that, going from birth to his untimely death in a 1999 airplane crash, grasping the magnitude and oddity of an eventful, charmed, and tragic life."
Sun Choke (2016)
Bad Moms (2016)
Jason Bourne (2016)
""Nerve" loses its titular gumption right when it gets going, growing more obsessed with Disney Channel-style social circle hysterics than the greater evil of a life lived in service of a faceless audience. "
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
Phantom Boy (2016)
Into The Forest (2016)
""Into the Forest" is particularly irksome at times, but the core viewing experience is sustained by Rozema, who handles mounting anxiety and the long apocalyptic waiting game competently, maintaining a feel for the end of the world."
The Fundamentals of Caring (2016)
"While Burnett doesn't provide a full cinematic meal with "The Fundamentals of Caring," he juggles tone surprisingly well, managing to keep the feature afloat where other helmers would fail within the first act. "
Can We Take a Joke? (2016)
"There's potential swirling around "Can We Take a Joke?" as it dissects vulnerability and stupidity, but it doesn't cut deep enough, careful to avoid black holes of debate to make a grander point on the growing indignation."
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
Lights Out (2016)
Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
Café Society (2016)
"Veers wildly from lighthearted memories and analysis to teary memories of the gravely injured and the dead. Mertens's heart is in the right place, but his storytelling instincts are shellacked with slime."
Outlaws and Angels (2016)
"It doesn't take long to realize that "Outlaws and Angels" is going to feel as long as the conquering of the west itself, with Mollner incapable of finding rhythm for this intentionally odious movie."
"There's surely an audience for his effort, especially those who enjoy slow-burn terror productions, but it's difficult to get excited about the feature's crawl of creepiness, which doesn't reward concentration with a particularly memorable conclusion."
The Infiltrator (2016)
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
Fathers And Daughters (2016)
Breaking A Monster (2016)
"While the material seems suited for a ripping horror yarn, the film is missing dramatic pieces and overall enthusiasm, making it more of a summary of King's work than an engrossing, consistent adaptation."
" It's tough for anything of note to happen in the movie when every character is dedicated to explaining everything on screen. And yet, somehow, nothing is clear or, in the end, all that interesting."
Zero Days (2016)
Swiss Army Man (2016)
"It's a creative endeavor, no doubt, and Dano and Radcliffe are heroic in their commitment to the cause. But "Swiss Army Man" stumbles to a conclusion, and no amount of farting can stabilize it to satisfaction."
The BFG (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
"There's a larger problem in the screenplay, which doesn't really know if it wants to study the story of Tarzan or use him as a poseable action figure in a tale that seldom inspires awe or excitement."
The Purge: Election Year (2016)
""Microbe & Gasoline" is one of the helmer's finest efforts, exploring the folds of the teenage mind with genuine awareness of human behavior, mixed tastefully with periodic bursts of delightful oddity. "
The Duel (2016)
Our Kind of Traitor (2016)
"Implausibility is a more powerful foe than the Russian mob in "Traitor," though charismatic performances help the feature work through a few tight spaces of credibility, keeping attention on the screen."
The Shallows (2016)
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
The Neon Demon (2016)
Adventures in Babysitting (2015)
Free State of Jones (2016)
