Poster for Allegiant

Allegiant

4.0

2016, Adventure, Action, Science fiction, Mystery

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

Poster for Grimsby

Grimsby

5.0

2016.03.04

Poster for London Has Fallen

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.

Poster for Triple 9

Triple 9

5.0

2016, Action, Suspense, Mystery

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

Poster for The Witch

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

Poster for How to Be Single

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

Poster for Zoolander 2

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

Poster for The Finest Hours

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

Poster for Ride Along 2

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

Poster for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

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

Poster for Carol

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

Poster for Joy

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

Poster for Daddy's Home

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

Poster for The Big Short

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

Poster for Sisters

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

Poster for Macbeth

Macbeth

6.0

2015, Adventure, Drama, History, War

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

2015.12.11

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