Options

Pete's Dragon

8.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy

Succeeds as a dramatic reimagining of its predecessor – giving rise to a soulful modern fairy tale in the process.

2016.08.12

Jason Bourne

5.0

2016 | Action | Suspense

A serviceable Bourne franchise installment, but an uninventive and unnecessary epilogue to the original Bourne movie trilogy.

2016.07.29

Lights Out

6.0

2016 | Horror | Suspense

Makes for a lean and mean scare-delivering machine, but is less effective as a supernatural horror parable.

2016.07.22

The Infiltrator

6.0

2016 | Drama | Suspense | Crime

A stylishly crafted and well-acted dramatic thriller, but breaks little new ground despite fascinating subject matter.

2016.07.13

The Secret Life of Pets

7.0

2016 | Adventure | Animation | Comedy

Isn’t a mold-breaker for animated movies, but it’s a consistently funny and inspired madcap romp nonetheless.

2016.07.08

The Legend of Tarzan

5.0

2016 | Adventure | Action

Too overstuffed and rough around the edges to fly high.

2016.07.01

The BFG

7.0

2016 | Adventure | Fantasy

A technically impressive adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel – one with whimsy and heart to spare.

2016.07.01

Free State of Jones

6.0

2016 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense | War

Well-crafted and tells a worthwhile story, but makes for a better history lesson than moviegoing experience.

2016.06.24

The Neon Demon

6.0

2016 | Horror | Suspense

A stylishly surreal, but hollow, horror/thriller – and another Nicolas Winding Refn film bound to divide audiences.

2016.06.24

Central Intelligence

6.0

2016 | Action | Comedy

Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson’s comedic chemistry save it from being a passable, yet forgettable, mainstream action/comedy.

2016.06.17

The Conjuring 2

8.0

2016 | Horror

While it isn’t as innovative a horror film throwback as its predecessor, it’s an excellent ghost story in its own right.

2016.06.10

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

5.0

2016 | Music | Comedy

Essentially a solid Lonely Island sketch over-stretched to fill a feature-length running time.

2016.06.03

Alice Through the Looking Glass

5.0

2016 | Fantasy

More of a shiny, yet hollow, Disney product than meaningful continuation of Alice’s story.

2016.05.27

The Nice Guys

7.0

2016 | Action | Comedy | Suspense | Crime

An entertainingly breezy buddy-detective romp that steadfast Shane Black fans ought to get additional mileage from.

2016.05.20

Money Monster

5.0

2016 | Suspense

A well-directed and well-acted dramatic thriller weighed down by heavy-handed social commentary and implausible plot beats.

2016.05.13

Captain America: Civil War

8.0

2016 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

A great superhero blockbuster that lays the groundwork for even bigger and better things to come in Phase 3 of the MCU.

2016.05.06

Keanu

7.0

2016 | Action | Comedy

May be a glorified feature-length Key and Peele skit, but it’s also an entertaining and thematically-layered action/comedy parody.

2016.04.29

Criminal

4.0

2016 | Action

A half-baked action/thriller that fails to properly explore its sci-fi premise.

2016.04.15

Hardcore Henry

5.0

2015 | Adventure | Action | Science fiction

Only partly successful at using the first person POV format to create a unique cinematic experience.

2016.04.08

The Boss

6.0

2016 | Comedy

A solid mainstream comedy elevated by its star.

2016.04.08

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

5.0

2016 | Comedy | Love

Has enough of its predecessor’s charm and sincerity to earn a passing grade.

2016.03.25

Allegiant

4.0

2016 | Adventure | Science fiction

A subpar installment in The Divergent Series that fails to justify the decision to split the final Divergent novel into two movies.

2016.03.18

Grimsby

5.0

2016 | Action | Comedy

A middle of the road action/comedy where Sacha Baron Cohen’s R-Rated comedy brand offers diminishing returns.

2016.03.11

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

5.0

2016 | Comedy | War

An uneven, but otherwise passable wartime comedy/drama anchored by Tina Fey’s performance.
