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

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

Poster for Blood Father

Blood Father

6.0

2016, Drama, Action, Suspense

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

2016.08.12

Poster for Pete's Dragon

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

Poster for Jason Bourne

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

Poster for Lights Out

Lights Out

6.0

2016, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

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

2016.07.22

Poster for The Infiltrator

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

Poster for The Secret Life of Pets

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

Poster for The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan

5.0

2016, Adventure, Action

Too overstuffed and rough around the edges to fly high.

2016.07.01

Poster for The BFG

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

Poster for Free State of Jones

Free State of Jones

6.0

2016, Drama, Action, History, War

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

2016.06.24

Poster for The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon

6.0

2016, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

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

2016.06.24

Poster for Central Intelligence

Central Intelligence

6.0

2016, Action, Comedy, Mystery

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

2016.06.17

Poster for The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2

8.0

2016, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

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

Poster for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

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

Poster for Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass

5.0

2016, Adventure, Fantasy

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

2016.05.27

Poster for The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys

7.0

2016, Action, Comedy, Crime, Mystery

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

2016.05.20

Poster for Money Monster

Money Monster

5.0

2016, Drama, Suspense

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

2016.05.13

Poster for Captain America: Civil War

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

Poster for Keanu

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

Poster for Criminal

Criminal

4.0

2016, Drama, Action, Suspense, Crime, Science fiction, Mystery

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

2016.04.15

Poster for Hardcore Henry

Hardcore Henry

5.0

2016, Adventure, Action, Science fiction

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

2016.04.08

Poster for The Boss

The Boss

6.0

2016, Comedy

A solid mainstream comedy elevated by its star.

2016.04.08

Poster for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

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.
