Pete's Dragon (2016)
A Touch of Zen (1969)
Suicide Squad (2016)
"[Suicide Squad] forgoes interesting characters and engaging plotlines in favor of faux nihilism and flat one-liners. There's simply no reason to care about anything or anyone in this bumbling ballet of idiocy and pyrotechnics."
The Childhood of a Leader (2016)
"There's doubtless a way one could produce a filmic account of Perry's eccentric vision that is respectful and illuminating, but Schaner's paternalistic approach strikes me as misguided-and a little cruel."
Under The Sun (2016)
"These layers are visible especially because the film is so intently focused on Zin-mi, her fascinating face, her restrained gestures, her openness and also her caution, her obvious effort to please and her occasional and barely discernible frustration."
Interrogation (Visaaranai) (2015)
"The movie never makes your choices difficult or challenges your role as a consumer, indicting consumers of violence in a way that's simultaneously obvious and pleasurable, and not at all your problem."
Jason Bourne (2016)
The Love Witch (2016)
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"Star Trek Beyond successfully straddles the fine line between Star Wars' high tech toy merchandising and the serious ideas fostered by concept creator, Gene Roddenberry. It's also a stone cold blast. "
Café Society (2016)
Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016)
The Neon Demon (2016)
Free State of Jones (2016)
Zero Days (2016)
"[Gibney] takes up the strategies he's used so skillfully in Taxi to the Dark Side... These back-and-forths are fun and energetic, the stories they reveal at once transfixing, preposterous, and melodramatic."
"On its surface, Tickled is about Farrier and Reeve's search for a truth about who's behind these tickle cells... But it's also, at another level, about how such a search becomes a truth of its own, documented and disseminated."
The BFG (2016)
Central Intelligence (2016)
O.J.: Made in America (2016)
"Juxtaposing images and interviews, revelations and old news, the film makes clear repeatedly that people base their beliefs on what they see, but what they see is inevitably framed by experiences and expectations."
The Revenant (2015)
"The Revenant survives and has the staying power to stand up to multiple viewings. If you loved the film in the theater, the experience is hardly lessened by its viewing on Blu Ray. The ghost still walks."
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Star Trek (2009)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
The Conjuring 2 (2016)
P.S. Jerusalem (2015)
Finding Dory (2016)
The World's End (2013)
"[The World's End] soon turns from this not-quite-nostalgic focus to one more like Pegg and Edgar Wright's first two Cornetto movies, which is to say, a melding of well-known genres in order to spoof them."
The Fits (2016)
Me Before You (2016)
All the Way (2016)
"All the Way is a firm lesson in the price and struggle of progress in American democracy, and the perhaps impossibility of a "nice guy" president. It's also an illustration of both how much and how little has changed in 50 years."
Of Men And War (2015)
"For all the individual horrors it documents, Of Men and War... is organized as a collective experience, following multiple, mostly unnamed veterans as they share in group or in pairs, expressing rage and fear, frustration, and small pleasures."
Presenting Princess Shaw (2016)
X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
The Babadook (2014)
"This isn't to say it's only about how disturbing it can be to be a mom; it's also not only about how difficult it can be to be a mom to a child who reminds you each day of your most dire trauma... The film is also about institutions that fail to serve."
Last Days In The Desert (2016)
Money Monster (2016)
Cash Only (2016)
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
