A hauntingly beautiful tale of a young, gay black man in Miami as he grows into a man.

2017.02.23

A United Kingdom

7.5

2016 | Drama | History

The formula works, and the acting is great in this true story romance.

2017.02.22

Hacksaw Ridge

8.3

2016 | Drama | History | War

The most realistic war film out there, it paints an unlikely (but true) hero into our memories in the tradition of Saving Private Ryan.

2017.02.22

Arrival

10

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Science fiction | Mystery

A quiet sci-fi filled with beautiful shots, extraordinary ideas about time and family, and of course, a tremendous (SNUBBED!) performance by Amy Adams.

2017.02.21

Elle

7.5

2016 | Drama | Suspense

A choreographed ending can’t spoil a performance by Isabelle Huppert, in one of the strangest movies I’ve watched in a while.

2017.02.20

La La Land

10

2016 | Drama | Music | Comedy | Love

A wonderful story, with courageous actors, the entire picture comes together in the swell of a song that you never want to end.

2017.02.18

Loving

2.5

2016 | Drama | Love

Relishing in the silence, too much goes unsaid in this historical drama.

2017.02.16

Florence Foster Jenkins

5.8

2016 | Drama | Comedy

Better than average acting performances and excellent costumes elevate poor plot pacing.

2017.02.13

Hell or High Water

9.1

2016 | Drama | Western | Suspense | Crime

A terrific modern western that goes further than bad or good, but questions whether morals and issues can exist on both sides of the law.

2017.02.10

Jackie

8.3

2016 | Drama | History

A powerful score, jarring camerawork, and a terrific performance lead you forward with a movie that is thrilling to watch, even when you know what’s coming.

2017.02.09

Fences

10

2016 | Drama

Terrific acting that encompasses the poetry of dialogue from a prize-winning play.

2017.02.08

Hidden Figures

8.3

2016 | Drama | History

A feel good film about a trio of women that most of us haven’t heard about, Hidden Figures doesn’t hit any new notes, but plays the song well anyway.

2017.02.07

Captain Fantastic

7.5

2016 | Adventure | Drama | Comedy | Love

A heavy film about fatherhood, family, and what parenting really is.

2017.02.03

The Space Between Us

6.7

2017 | Adventure | Drama | Science fiction | Love

One of the few YA romance movies that was actually enjoyable to watch - disregard the seemingly negative review.

2017.02.02

Manchester by the Sea

10

2016 | Drama

So much feeling! that develops from this film, mainly due to Casey Affleck’s mesmerizing performance.

2017.02.02

Lion

9.1

2016 | Drama

Dev Patel turns in a fantastic performance in the story of a man that just wants to find home.

2017.01.30

Suicide Squad

5.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy | Action | Crime | Science fiction

A movie that falls short of a lot of what it could have been, while still maintaining a semblance of entertainment.

2017.01.25

Gold

7.5

2016 | Adventure | Drama | Suspense

Full of more ups and downs than a roller coaster, a drunk and sweaty McConaughey turns in a good performance, under a façade of weight and baldness.

2017.01.24

Zero Effect

8.3

1998 | Comedy | Suspense | Crime | Mystery

Frequently hilarious, this retelling of classic Sherlock Holmes seems like a precursor to BBC’s Sherlock.

2017.01.23

The Way Back

5.8

2010 | Adventure | Drama | History

Visually stunning, but lacking character development, this movie is an interesting watch, but not a necessary one.

2017.01.20

Split

10

2016 | Horror | Suspense

M. Night Shyamalan, ever heard of him? Returns to his classic days to bring you this thriller worth watching.

2017.01.19

Jason Bourne

3.3

2016 | Action | Suspense

Superfluous to the max, this sequel really doesn’t have much to offer you.

2017.01.18

The Girl on the Train

8.3

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Crime | Mystery | Love

It may be a by-the-books thriller for most of it, but Blunt turns in such a performance that you need to watch it.
