6.0

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.

Poster for The Edge of Seventeen

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.

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

2016.11.11

Poster for Hacksaw Ridge

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

Poster for Inferno

Inferno

4.0

2016, Drama, 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

More solid horror film than soulless franchise continuation.

2016.10.07

Poster for Queen of Katwe

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

Poster for Masterminds

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

Poster for Deepwater Horizon

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

Poster for Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby

6.0

2016, Comedy, Love

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

Poster for The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans

6.0

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

2016.09.02

Poster for War Dogs

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

Poster for Hell or High Water

2016.08.19

Poster for Blood Father

Blood Father

6.0
