A Hologram for the King (2016)
Sing Street (2016)
"Those put off by the prospect of a musical in the '80s pop style of Duran Duran or Pet Shop Boys should cast their prejudices aside when it comes to John Carney's "Sing Street." You might find yourself singing along."
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
Green Room (2016)
Elvis & Nixon (2016)
The Jungle Book (2016)
"Favreau has proved he can make big studio contraptions seem warm and nearly human - he's the Baloo of filmmakers - and the great strength of this "Jungle Book" is how busy it is with personalities and incident."
Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)
Miles Ahead (2016)
The Dark Horse (2016)
Born To Be Blue (2016)
"When Hawke's Baker finally slips out of the whiney loser persona and performs "My Funny Valentine," the scene evokes Baker's elusive melancholy and wistful torment, making the earlier fumblings worth the struggle."
The Dying of the Light (2016)
The Boss (2016)
Hardcore Henry (2016)
"When the action is at its sharpest, such as with Henry's mid-chase leap from a detonating truck onto the back of a motorcycle, it's spectacular. Other times, it can be as wearying as generically hyper-edited Hollywood fare."
The Invitation (2016)
"Kusama's handling of point of view is diabolically shrewd. She maximizes the terror potential of the vapidly ostentatious modernist mansion without fetishizing it. She intensifies the monstrosity of some of the characters by making them all too human."
The Clan (El Clan) (2016)
Midnight Special (2016)
I Saw the Light (2016)
Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
Take Me To The River (2016)
"It piles too much on its serving plate, and at 129 minutes it's definitely overlong. But it has Frot, an actress with the wise, patient eyes of a cat, and she invests Marguerite with the multiple meanings the rest of the film elegantly fumbles."
City Of Gold (2016)
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)
Hello, My Name is Doris (2016)
The Bronze (2016)
"It touches on big topics like the Holocaust, dementia, and middle-class American mores, and in doing so verges on bad taste. Despite all that, and an implausible plot, Egoyan ekes out an engaging and meaningful potboiler."
"This setup creates real anticipation about where the story might be headed, at least for those who haven't read Roth's books. Frustratingly, though, the movie devolves into a derivative muddle by the second act."
Eye In The Sky (2016)
"It's clockwork entertainment, in the end - a precisely calibrated schematic in which every aspect of the ethical quandary balances every other aspect, and the only variable is your own moral compass."
Creative Control (2016)
"Even after establishing David as a panicky wreck addicted to his morning Xanax chewables and evening booze, the movie doesn't dramatize his ensuing breakdown so that it makes sense or generates much sympathy."
Miracles from Heaven (2016)
Knight of Cups (2016)
"[Malick] seems to be working ever closer to some kind of ur-movie in his head - the film he has always wanted to see and maybe even be. But he's also in danger of working his way down to an audience of one."
Rams (Hrútar) (2016)
"In its attentive and hushed way, the movie is about collision: between stubborn farmers and the government veterinary board, between ancient ways and modern times, between two old, hardheaded brothers."
Talent Has Hunger (2016)
"Porter deftly presents statistics, graphs, and background information. But she also shows the intimate, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking day-to-day drama of the dedicated staff and owners of the clinics ..."
In The Shadow of Women (2016)
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
London Has Fallen (2016)
The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)
