Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016)
"It's a basic Point-A-to-Point-B adventure film, but with so much life, energy and emotion. It's perfectly cast, and the animation -- particularly the parts with the ocean in them, which is almost all of it -- is jaw dropping."
Phantom Boy (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
"The animation itself is impressively detailed, giving a lo-fi, tactile look to the characters, in keeping with the original toys, while the song choice and vocal performances will tug you in all the right directions despite yourself."
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
"We didn't think anything was going to get us excited about a sequel to 2014's crushingly routine Blumhouse horror Ouija, but we didn't reckon on the addition of director Mike Flanagan and writer Jeff Howard."
I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)
"The pacing and subject matter may alienate some viewers, but this is the kind of film that deserves to find a cult audience. It's a chilling, surprising and sensitive horror that you won't forget in a hurry."
A Monster Calls (2016)
The Babadook (2014)
Swiss Army Man (2016)
The Girl With All the Gifts (2016)
Blair Witch (2016)
The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)
"If you're looking for a gripping narrative then look elsewhere; enjoy the B-movie effects and crash zooms, melodramatic acting, eclectic soundtrack, Hockney-esque visuals and Bowie's effortless charisma instead."
Under The Shadow (2016)
The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016)
The Similars (Los Parecidos) (2016)
"With enough narrative complexity, homages to vintage science fiction and sheer entertainment to justify repeat viewings, The Similars is an absolute treat for genre fans and we highly recommend that you hunt it down as soon as possible."
Don't Breathe (2016)
The Purge: Election Year (2016)
The Childhood of a Leader (2016)
Lights Out (2016)
"What makes Lights Out so terrifyingly effective is that it takes full advantage of that primal fear of the dark that almost everybody has felt at some point in their lives. And this time, there really is something under your bed."
400 Days (2016)
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
"It's always impressive when a film manages to truly immerse the viewer in the world it's presenting. In the case of We Are The Flesh, which played at Fantasia Film Festival, it's not necessarily a pleasant experience, but good lord, it is powerful."
"The appeal of La Rage Du Demon may be somewhat limited, and at times it does feel a little like an exercise, but it's as much a celebration as it is a sleight of hand, and an engrossing and entertaining one at that."
Suicide Squad (2016)
"While reports of reshoots and studio interference are as prevalent in blockbuster cinema as superheroes, there's a jarring mash of tones and clumsy editing that suggests that someone felt that something wasn't quite right on Suicide Squad."
Man Underground (2016)
Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)
"Alan Moore probably wouldn't appreciate us saying it, but The Killing Joke story itself feels made for the screen. It's hard to truly critique something when it takes its cues from a truly excellent comic-book storyline."
Pete's Dragon (2016)
The Eyes of My Mother (2016)
"The deliberate pacing will put some viewers off (even though it's less than 80 minutes), and some may complain that it's a little hollow, but as a cinematic experience, this is truly impressive, and it will stay with you."
The Wailing (Goksung) (2016)
The Unseen (2016)
Bed of the Dead (2016)
"With some great practical effects and some strong gory surprises, there are things to like her, but ultimately Bed Of The Dead doesn't quite come together. Still, we're definitely interested in seeing what Maher does next."
Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016)
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
The Love Witch (2016)
