Fences (2016)
15 hours ago via Flixster

Although it features powerhouse performances from Washington and Davis, the feature film format does the source material no favors. It feels long-winded, cheapens its central metaphors by hitting us over the head with them, and makes it painfully obvious that Troy Maxson is a guy with whom nobody would want to spend 5 minutes, let alone 2+ hours.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
17 days ago via Flixster

Although it could be construed as more fan service, some tie-ins are necessary, and most of these manage to be fairly seamless. More importantly, the story is original and organic enough, much of the movie has the rawer feel of the original trilogy, and it bridges the gap leading into Episode IV effectively.

Nocturnal Animals
19 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While the acting is strong all-around, and the inner story serves as an effective thriller, the outer story is mostly unsuccessful and serves as little more than a backdrop while failing to offer a lot of character depth.

Don't Think Twice
21 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's obvious Birbiglia has a love for the improv/comedy scene of which he is part, and here he's created what feels like an honest portrayal while also showing his adeptness in evoking a wide range of human emotions as the film plays out.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe
22 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Ovredal's use of striking and disturbing imagery that was on display in Trollhunter continues in this creepy, tense, unique thriller that's also bolstered by strong performances from its leads.
