Bad Santa 2 (2016)
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
"Even when the movie gets massively visual, it never gets away from the central strength of Cumberbatch's performance. That's not easy to do, but accomplishing the task is why Doctor Strange is pure Marvel magic."
American Pastoral (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
Miss Sharon Jones! (2016)
The Hollars (2016)
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
3 Weeks in Yerevan (2016)
The Vessel (2016)
Blair Witch (2016)
"Blair Witch is nothing but a pale imitation of The Blair Witch Project -- void of all creativity and originality. It's so bad, it manages what should have been impossible and is far worse than Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2."
For the Love of Spock (2016)
The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016)
Hell or High Water (2016)
War Dogs (2016)
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
"Frears works at a frantic pace to get Jenkins from one failed performance to the next. This gives Streep a lot of moments of musical misfortunes but they are delivered in such a helter-skelter manner that each seems little different than the one before."
Sausage Party (2016)
Suicide Squad (2016)
The Little Prince (2016)
Captain Fantastic (2016)
"Captain Fantastic is a deep examination of parenting, family, excess, isolationism, hope and the challenge of making the right decisions.Most importantly, this is a movie that asks the viewer to think."
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"It all comes down to how beautifully Lumley and Saunders bring their characters to life. They have had so many years to play the roles that they come across as more of a second skin than an acting job."
Lights Out (2016)
"Sell all your stocks immediately and invest in companies that make candles, flashlights, light bulbs or anything else that creates illumination. There's going to be a run on those items with the release of Lights Out."
The Infiltrator (2016)
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
"This mildly amusing adventure story will both entertain young moviegoers with its dazzling color scheme and scare them with some intense moments. It has a bit of charm, but it is not enough to keep a tight leash on parents."
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
The Purge: Election Year (2016)
"The tension the director/writer has infused in the story is relentless. It's just the unnecessary efforts to make the story bigger, coupled with a predictable plot, that leave it the least compelling of the Purge movies."
Central Intelligence (2016)
"Warcraft has achieved a lofty goal: There hasn't been a movie as unrelentingly bad since Jupiter Ascending managed to surpass the bloated and pitiful Battlefield Earth as the worst big budget science-fiction film of all time."
The Conjuring 2 (2016)
"Once again, the movie's strength is in the way Wan plays out the scary moments. He takes safe and special items, like a child's toys, and uses them as instruments of terror. This works so well because an audience can relate to the simple items."
Now You See Me 2 (2016)
The Lobster (2016)
"The movie's uninspired plot about a rapper who struggles with his second album has enough material to fill a three-minute sketch on Saturday Night Live. And even then, there would be about a minute of failed comedy."
Me Before You (2016)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
"It takes a tour de force performance to stand out in a film that features compelling performances by Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts and Dakota Johnson. They are so good that even when Fiennes is not on screen, the quality never waivers."
The Meddler (2016)
"Hollywood is always going to lean toward youth, especially with women. It's wonderful that when given a chance, mature female actors can show they are the most capable at playing complex roles that come across in a very simple way."
The Nice Guys (2016)
"The concept is solid and Black's formula for this kind of film has worked before. Where The Good Guys goes astray is in Black's decision to downplay the '70s as fodder for his script and the casting of Gosling as the quirky private detective."
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)
The Angry Birds Movie (2016)
Money Monster (2016)
