An affecting examination of the grieving process brought to life through strong direction and compelling performances.

La La Land

9.0

2016 | Drama | Music | Comedy | Love

Makes for Damien Chazelle’s most technically-accomplished love letter to music yet, as well as the filmmaker’s most poignant work.

2016.12.16

Nocturnal Animals

6.0

2016 | Drama | Suspense

Has style and ambition to spare, yet as a whole Tom Ford’s dark psychological thriller rings hollow.

2016.11.25

Moana

8.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy | Animation | Music | Comedy

A funny, heartfelt and richly-crafted hero’s journey adventure that effectively puts a Disney spin on Southern Pacific culture.

2016.11.23

Allied

7.0

2016 | Drama | Action | Suspense | Love | War

Most compelling as a dramatic spy thriller – less so as a sweeping romance that unfolds against the backdrop of WWII.

2016.11.23

The Edge of Seventeen

8.0

2016 | Drama | Comedy

Captures the spirit of classic John Hughes comedies – at the same time, refining and innovating Hughes’ storytelling approach.

2016.11.18

Moonlight

9.0

2016 | Drama

One of the most poignant, poetic and beautiful movies of the year.

2016.11.18

Arrival

8.0

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Science fiction | Mystery

A smart tale of alien contact that boasts great visuals and performances, if also more brains than heart.

2016.11.11

Hacksaw Ridge

7.0

2016 | Drama | History | War

A grisly WWII movie that excels as an action/thriller, but has mixed success in realizing its loftier thematic ambitions.

2016.11.04

Inferno

4.0

2016 | Suspense | Mystery

Unlikely to earn the Robert Langdon movie franchise any new fans – and isn’t worth the long wait that it took to get made.

2016.10.28

Ouija: Origin of Evil

6.0

2016 | Horror | Suspense

More solid horror film than soulless franchise continuation.

2016.10.21

The Birth of a Nation

5.0

2016 | Drama

A work of passion-fueled filmmaking and messy storytelling that struggles to make the grand statement it aims for.

2016.10.07

Queen of Katwe

6.0

2016 | Drama

A heavy-handed variation of the Disney inspirational sports drama formula, but a sincere and well-meaning one too.

2016.09.30

Masterminds

4.0

2016 | Action | Comedy | Crime

A disposable and middling off-kilter heist comedy that squanders its cast’s talents on subpar material.

2016.09.30

Deepwater Horizon

7.0

2016 | Drama | Action

Effectively turns the real-world disaster into an action/drama that’s more disturbing than thrilling to watch.

2016.09.30

Bridget Jones's Baby

6.0

2016 | Comedy

A perfectly enjoyable addition to the Bridget Jones franchise, if not a particularly meaningful one.

2016.09.16

Sully

6.0

2016 | Drama | History

Amounts to a respectable yet unmemorable account of real-life heroism, despite fine performances and capable direction.

2016.09.09

The Light Between Oceans

6.0

2016 | Drama

Strong performances and beautiful cinematography elevate, yet soap opera contrivances and uneven writing hold it back.

2016.09.02

War Dogs

6.0

2016 | Drama | Comedy | Crime

A solid movie, but only partly succeeds at blending Todd Phillips’ brand of bro-comedy with social/political commentary.

2016.08.19

Hell or High Water

8.0

2016 | Drama | Western | Suspense | Crime

Makes for a contemplative dramatic thriller that is fueled by great performances and strong direction.

2016.08.19

Blood Father

6.0

2016 | Action | Suspense

Offers solid genre film entertainment, but works better as a character piece than as a pulpy thrill ride.
