London Has Fallen

4.0

2016 | Action | Suspense | Crime

An uninspired sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, but has some of its predecessor’s cheesy action movie throwback charm.

2016.03.04

Gods of Egypt

3.0

2016 | Fantasy

A cheesy and visually unimpressive fantasy adventure that’s too dull to make for fun campy entertainment.

2016.02.26

Triple 9

5.0

2016 | Action | Suspense

Its talented cast and inspired directorial flourishes are offset by messy storytelling choices.

2016.02.26

The Witch

7.0

2016 | Horror | Mystery

Effectively unpleasant and creepy, but it works better as a psychological thriller than a horror film.

2016.02.19

How to Be Single

6.0

2016 | Comedy | Love

Relies heavily on rom-com tropes, but succeeds in putting a more thoughtful and funny spin on many of them.

2016.02.12

Zoolander 2

5.0

2016 | Comedy

Aims to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor, but amounts to a serviceable (though less memorable) comedy sequel.

2016.02.12

The Finest Hours

5.0

2016 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense

A respectful dramatization of the real-life events that inspired it, but is too by the numbers to leave a strong impression.

2016.01.29

Ride Along 2

4.0

2016 | Action | Comedy

An uninspired retread of its predecessor, but manages to reach the (low) bar set for this action/comedy franchise.

2016.01.15

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

5.0

2016 | Drama | Action | History | Suspense | War

Has elements of a lean and efficient action/thriller, but is bloated and overblown thanks to Michael Bay’s directorial approach.

2016.01.15

Carol

8.0

2015 | Drama | Love

A visually rich period drama that boasts strong performances and refined direction, though some may find it easier to admire than love.

2016.01.08

Joy

6.0

2015 | Drama | Comedy

A decent biographical drama anchored by Jennifer Lawrence’s performance, but fails to realize its greater ambitions.

2015.12.26

Daddy's Home

5.0

2015 | Comedy

A formulaic Will Ferrell comedy, but enough jokes hit their mark to make it a passable one.

2015.12.25

The Big Short

7.0

2015 | Drama | Comedy

Has its flaws, but is one of the more unique movies based on non-fiction literature in recent memory.

2015.12.23

Sisters

6.0

2015 | Comedy

An uneven mix of raunchy farce and sincerity that’s elevated by the undeniable chemistry between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

2015.12.18

Macbeth

6.0

2015 | Drama | History | War

An effectively grim and well-acted Shakespeare adaptation, but prioritizes style over substance.

2015.12.11

Krampus

5.0

2015 | Fantasy | Horror | Comedy

Provides enough kitschy fun for those craving a darker holiday yarn.

2015.12.04

Brooklyn

9.0

2015 | Drama | Love

A beautiful period drama and rich piece of romantic storytelling that boasts great performances.

2015.11.26

Victor Frankenstein

4.0

2015 | Drama | Suspense | Science fiction

An entertainingly kooky, but otherwise messy and slapdash re-imagining of the Frankenstein mythos.

2015.11.25

The Good Dinosaur

7.0

2015 | Adventure | Animation

Still boasts a touching story and gorgeous animation.

2015.11.25

Secret in Their Eyes

5.0

2015 | Drama | Crime | Mystery

A well-acted and politically-charged drama/thriller with ambitions that exceed its grasp.

2015.11.20

Spotlight

8.0

2015 | Drama | History | Suspense

A well-crafted and thoughtful investigative journalism docudrama that is buoyed by great performances.

2015.11.20

The Peanuts Movie

8.0

2015 | Animation

Succeeds at giving the Peanuts property a shiny fresh coat of paint, while keeping its heart and humanist spirit intact.

2015.11.06

Burnt

5.0

2015 | Drama

Fails as a character study, but thrives when bringing the fast-moving world of professional chefs to cinematic life.

2015.10.30

Jem and the Holograms

4.0

2015 | Adventure | Fantasy | Drama | Music

What good intentions Jem and the Holograms has are weighed down by its cheap aesthetic and thinly-drawn storyline.
