Los Angeles Times
"The voice actors shamelessly overact, delivering lines in grating shrieks. The weightless animation is equally overwrought: The characters flail about as if they'd contracted the cartoon equivalent of ergot poisoning."
Classmates (Dou kyu sei) (2016)
"East engagingly meets West in "The Professor: Tai Chi's Journey West," an affectionate documentary portrait of Cheng Man-Ching, the Chinese master who brought Tai Chi to New York during the groovy but stressed-out '60s."
The Family Fang (2016)
Rabin In His Own Words (2016)
""In His Own Words" is a deeply involving look at the man's entire life, using archival footage, home movies, private letters but most of all filmed interviews Rabin gave, to let us hear him tell his own story just about from cradle to grave."
Elstree 1976 (2016)
"Given what a multibillion-dollar behemoth the Star Wars universe has become, it's fascinating to discover that a long time ago in a studio sound stage far, far away, no one took it very seriously at all."
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015)
Term Life (2016)
Special Correspondents (2016)
Ratchet & Clank (2016)
The Wait (L'attesa) (2016)
Pali Road (2016)
"As a travelogue for the green-and-blue lushness of the Aloha State, "Pali Road" has its postcard appeal, but for fans of love stories that split the mind and agitate the heart, this one is postcard-thin as well."
"Skipping deftly between time frames while keeping her camera close to her protagonist - played with tremulous understatement by the remarkable actress Alba Rohrwacher - Bispuri traces a journey of delicate interior shifts and reversals."
Mother's Day (2016)
The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016)
"If "The Man Who Knew Infinity" had been more concerned with the soul of a raw talent instead of the learn-and-earn ethos of so much accomplishment cinema, it might have produced something soulful rather than something institutional."
Sign o' the Times (1987)
Keepers of the Game (2016)
"Even if its trajectory hews to a well-worn format, "Keepers of the Game" is as strong an argument that can be made for the rich emotional rewards of schoolgirls hitting the field to show everyone and themselves what they can achieve."
Elvis & Nixon (2016)
Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016)
"This seriously warped family portrait - an inspired thematic hybrid of Kafkaesque alienation and Farrelly brothers farce, with a healthy grafting of Tod Browning's "Freaks" - still has an organic sweetness at its core."
The Meddler (2016)
A Hologram for the King (2016)
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
"This lively and engaged documentary lives up to its name. It uses the story of the paradigmatic matzo manufacturer to examine what the American dream meant back in the day and what it has turned into now."
"Filled with affecting and nuanced performances, Confirmation is an upsetting film to watch, hitting far too close to the bone to feel like a period piece about a regrettable moment from which we have learned."
The Invitation (2016)
Sing Street (2016)
"Watson, with her razor-sharp Hermione Granger conviction very much intact, gives us reason to care about her character's predicament even as the dramatics that put her there prove considerably less convincing."
Echo Park (2016)
Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016)
