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

Poster for Ouija: Origin of Evil

Ouija: Origin of Evil

6.0

2016, Horror, Suspense

More solid horror film than soulless franchise continuation.

2016.10.21

Poster for The Birth of a Nation

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

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.

2016.09.16

Poster for Sully

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

Poster for The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans

6.0

2016, Drama, Love

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

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.
