"Paterson is easily one of Jarmusch's most accomplished films. He portrays the life of the mind and the workings of the creative soul as a kind of secret love affair, a deep, hidden well inside the most ordinary, mundane existence."
Live By Night (2017)
A Monster Calls (2017)
Hidden Figures (2017)
"The miracle lies in how the film gently touches on some of the most intractable social problems addressed by the civil rights movement, while maintaining an infectiously buoyant vibe - not to mention a bouncy soundtrack."
Why Him? (2016)
Assassin's Creed (2016)
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
Old Stone (Lao Shi) (2016)
Miss Sloane (2016)
"Madden's film offers up a banal truism - money has a corrupting influence on politics - as if it were some great dramatic discovery and trots out a fairy-tale ending that both repudiates the political process and undermines the movie ..."
The Duelist (Duelyant) (2016)
The Love Witch (2016)
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
"Yates and Rowling skillfully weave their bleak - and very blunt-edged - message into the fabric of the story. It might be wildly out of place in a fantasy aimed at tweens, but it's a welcome change from the usual vapid blockbuster."

La La Land (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)

"If you think art should challenge us, then you will embrace writer-director Barry Jenkins' exquisitely crafted drama Moonlight. It's a true American masterpiece and one of the best films of the decade."
"Despite the competent animation, the great tunes, and funny voice work by costars Russell Brand and John Cleese, Trolls is a lackluster entry. The story is clichéd and predictable. Overall, the film has no real magic."
"Howard seems to have forgotten that the Langdon stories are supposed to be puzzles, brain-teasing mysteries. Here, the symbology that Langdon does is so absurdly esoteric, and so beside the point, the audience stops following the clues."
Hamilton's America (2016)
Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)
"As crime thrillers go, it's an inferior product with a predictable plot. It succeeds because of its memorable characters and their shifting relationships. There's some nice action and offbeat humor."
Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016)
The Accountant (2016)
The Birth of a Nation (2016)
The Girl on the Train (2016)
Antonia (Antonia's Line) (1995)

"A terrifying documentary that'll have your heart racing as fast as any Hollywood thriller, Kenner's film reveals that, due to a range of errors and accidents, we were very close, more than once, to detonating a nuke on our own soil."
"Masterminds is filled with the sort of idiotic bathroom humor that has become standard in big-screen comedies, but it is enlivened by the surreal slapstick touches that made Napoleon Dynamite so good."
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
