The Founder (2017)
Seasons (Les saisons) (2016)
""Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened" illustrates an essential principle of art: You have to risk cataclysmic failure - and, at times, fall into it - if you're planning to scale the heights."
Life on the Line (2016)
Patriots Day (2017)
"Writer-directors Tomas Weinreb and Petr Kazda construct a still-topical case study of extreme trauma yielded by adolescent bullying and parental neglect, fronted with committed intensity by rising Polish star Michalina Olszanska."
"Designed on one level to conjure the effects of a repressive society on women with few choices available, "Love" feels frigid even though Wasilewski likely wants to extend sympathy to their situations."
Officer Downe (2016)
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
100 Streets (2017)
""Fantastic Beasts" has clearly been designed for the most devoted of Rowling's fans, and though it may prove confusing to newcomers, the faithful will appreciate the fact the film never talks down to its audience."
The Comedian (2017)
Miss Sloane (2016)
Shut In (2016)
The Monster (2016)
Off the Rails (2016)
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
"Hughes hides ... until nearly 25 minutes into the picture, though the character can't help but commandeer our attention from that point on, especially amid the vanilla pudding that serves as the rest of the plot."
The Pearl (2016)
Almost Christmas (2016)
"A bad Christmas movie can give off all the warmth of a televised yule log, but David E. Talbert, the writer-director of "Almost Christmas," has assembled a gifted cast and given them a chance to stretch out and play with their roles."
National Bird (2016)
"Chilling testimony from those three veterans, each of whom helped to wage war from behind consoles half a world away, serves as the backbone of a film that adds its voice to mounting criticism of the U.S. drone program."
Bobby Sands: 66 Days (2016)
""Moana" keeps with the tradition that made Disney the leader in animated fairy and folk tales, and yet, showing a thoroughly modern touch, it's the first to do so without so much as suggesting a love interest."
A Street Cat Named Bob (2016)
The Ghoul (2016)
The Ivory Game (2016)
You've Been Trumped Too (2016)
Bilal: A New Breed of Hero (2016)
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)
The Unspoken (2016)
"The phrase "low-budget horror" once held out the promise of seedy grisly sensation that big-budget horror wouldn't give you. But in the case of a movie like "The Unspoken," it just means: standard glossy horror tropes executed with scary ineptitude."
The Women's Balcony (2016)
Oasis: Supersonic (2016)
I Am a Hero (2015)
"I Am A Hero careens along in a giddy, bloodsoaked, immensely pleasurable rush, propelled by an enthusiasm as infectious as a bite from the undead, that makes even the hoariest beats of the plot seem dipped in bright, bloody newness."
The Frontier (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
"The key is an in-on-the-joke script, which Derrickson co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill, that ingeniously navigates major plot potholes even as it saddles its actors with ludicrous dialogue. But what actors!"
By Sidney Lumet (2016)
Operation Mekong (2016)
"If it makes for a breathlessly assaultive, vastly entertaining couple of hours, it can be discomfiting whenever there's a brief pause in the pelting gunfire and we glimpse the contours of the actual, flesh-and-blood tragedy."
Before the Flood (2016)
Land of the Little People (2016)
Fritz Lang (2016)
"Even taking into account Lang's often contradictory inventions, this embarrassing pseudo biopic, profligately adorned with period clips for a futile attempt at authenticity, is a luridly fictionalized mess."
Boo! A Madea Halloween (2016)
"It's another of Perry's raucous and slovenly comedies of responsibility, which means that its heart is in a very old - and right - place. If only a message that was this solid equalled solid laughs."
Orange Sunshine (2016)
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)
