You know a movie's good when a goat gives one of the best performances of the year so far.

Hail, Caesar!
Hail, Caesar! (2016)
22 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's fairly easy to see how audiences could be a bit thrown off by how low-stakes and light-hearted this is for a Coen brothers film, especially in comparison to recent critic-favorites like "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "True Grit". But if you can get past the fact the the film is way more lightweight than the trailer makes it out to be, this is still the Coen brothers at the most witty and funny they've been since "Burn After Reading", with the always reliable Roger Deakins adding some beautiful cinematography along with it. The least essential Coen brothers film in perhaps a decade, but one of the more entertaining films at that.

Jane Got a Gun
22 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Weirdly lacking and deficient for a movie that's been in production for four years. There are some decent moments of filmmaking here and there and the script, though clearly revised and patched-up, isn't bad at all, it's just so un-substantive and simple and forgettable that the fact that the title of this movie has been floating around since freakin' 2012 makes it so that the experience is extremely underwhelming.

The Forest
The Forest (2016)

Succeeds at not having anything particularly terrible about it for such a low-scored January horror movie, but still manages to frustrate you by teasing an interesting premise with very limited, half-effective attempts at bringing you substance that's more engaging than a soggy, dark forest,

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Like the original trilogy, "Star Was: The Force Awakens" entertains and excites by keeping the story-line simple and the action with the characters. This episode features the best acting in the franchise and new characters who match the likability and genuine heroism of the original characters. And Kylo Ren rivals (and beats imo) Darth Vader as the best villain in the series. Adam Driver, you are one scary son of a bitch.
