Allied

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

Captures the spirit of classic John Hughes comedies – at the same time, refining and innovating Hughes’ storytelling approach.

One of the most poignant, poetic and beautiful movies of the year.

Poster for Arrival

Arrival

8

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

Poster for Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge

7

A grisly WWII movie that excels as an action/thriller, but has mixed success in realizing its loftier thematic ambitions.

Poster for Inferno

Inferno

4

Unlikely to earn the Robert Langdon movie franchise any new fans – and isn’t worth the long wait that it took to get made.

Poster for Ouija: Origin of Evil

Ouija: Origin of Evil

6

More solid horror film than soulless franchise continuation.

Poster for The Birth of a Nation

The Birth of a Nation

5

A work of passion-fueled filmmaking and messy storytelling that struggles to make the grand statement it aims for.

Poster for Queen of Katwe

Queen of Katwe

6

A heavy-handed variation of the Disney inspirational sports drama formula, but a sincere and well-meaning one too.

2016.09.30

2016

Poster for Masterminds

Masterminds

4

A disposable and middling off-kilter heist comedy that squanders its cast’s talents on subpar material.

Poster for Deepwater Horizon

Deepwater Horizon

7

Effectively turns the real-world disaster into an action/drama that’s more disturbing than thrilling to watch.

2016

Poster for Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby

6

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

Poster for Sully

Sully

6

Amounts to a respectable yet unmemorable account of real-life heroism, despite fine performances and capable direction.

2016.09.09

2016

Poster for The Light Between Oceans

The Light Between Oceans

6

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

2016.09.02

2016

Poster for War Dogs

War Dogs

6

A solid movie, but only partly succeeds at blending Todd Phillips’ brand of bro-comedy with social/political commentary.

2016.08.19

2016

Poster for Hell or High Water

Hell or High Water

8

Makes for a contemplative dramatic thriller that is fueled by great performances and strong direction.

2016.08.19

2016

Poster for Blood Father

Blood Father

6

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

2016.08.12

2016

Poster for Pete's Dragon

Pete's Dragon

8

Succeeds as a dramatic reimagining of its predecessor – giving rise to a soulful modern fairy tale in the process.

2016.08.12

2016

Poster for Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne

5

A serviceable Bourne franchise installment, but an uninventive and unnecessary epilogue to the original Bourne movie trilogy.

2016.07.29

2016

Poster for Lights Out

Lights Out

6

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

2016.07.22

2016

Poster for The Infiltrator

The Infiltrator

6

A stylishly crafted and well-acted dramatic thriller, but breaks little new ground despite fascinating subject matter.

2016.07.13

2016

Poster for The Secret Life of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets

7

Isn’t a mold-breaker for animated movies, but it’s a consistently funny and inspired madcap romp nonetheless.

2016.07.08

2016

Poster for The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan

5

Too overstuffed and rough around the edges to fly high.

2016.07.01

2016

Poster for The BFG

The BFG

7

A technically impressive adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel – one with whimsy and heart to spare.
