Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)
"Never Go Back is boilerplate action-thriller, filmed with an anonymous style and scripted so that characters talk in catchphrases. It clears the bar of competency, but what kind of recommendation is that?"
Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016)
Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
La Leyenda del Chupacabras (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
"Not so much horrific as it is just skeletons-in-the-basement creepy, this is a shuddery fun surprise for horror fans, who by the way should stick around until the closing credits are done for a special (if inevitable) trick or treat."
"The final verdict, of course, is a matter of historical record, but Denial brings with it so many parallels to contemporary issues of huge lies and great truths that its message is all the more resonant. Well done."

Under The Shadow (2016)
"To paraphrase Talking Heads, life during wartime ain't no party, especially if you're stuck in Tehran at the tail end of the Iran-Iraq war in the late Eighties. That's the predicament facing the family at the heart of this nervy little haunter."
Raw (Grave) (2016)
The Zodiac Killer (1971)
"True crime and cinema go together like highways and spree killers. But no film has a more bizarre relationship with real-life murder than 1971's The Zodiac Killer, the first film to be restored by the American Genre Film Archive."
Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
Queen of Katwe (2016)
"Not only is [Madina Nalwanga] able to convey Phiona's preternatural abilities, but also the trepidation and fears that arise once the child gets a sense of her own keenness and a glimpse of how life is lived outside the slums of Katwe. "
"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is simply too much of a good thing crammed into a single movie. It's a phantasmagorical chase movie that rarely takes a breather long enough for you to enjoy the sights along the way."
"Not only an instant genre classic but also an astute and affecting rumination on the notion that the shades of the past are always with us and can disrupt us to the point of personal and societal collapse."

Other People (2016)
"Other People is gentle, heartfelt, and of a delicate build. Kelly's best observations are small but true: the touching banality of a bad pop song, and that "other people" is in fact most people, if you're paying attention."
When the Bough Breaks (2016)
"It is clear from the start that Deborah Esquenazi's film couldn't care less about aesthetics... But it becomes a compelling aesthetic of its own, expressing an intimacy with the women and their families that the viewer can't help but fall into."
