Berlin Syndrome

7

The experiment is engrossing, and delivers the kind of experience that will keep you grounded for a few minutes after the film’s conclusion...

Denial

7

Even though Lipstadt sometimes struggles to influence her own biopic-of-sorts, she is nevertheless the star of the show.

Poster for Bitter Harvest

Bitter Harvest

4

A necessary production, yet it fails to deliver the same punch as similar historic episodes re-told through film.

Collateral Beauty

4

Just as its title tries to say too much, so too does the film try to tell too many stories and provoke a few too many tears.

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

6

While the interview scenes tell us why music is important, these scenes ultimately give us the most compelling evidence.

Peaks when it dabbles in satire.

Poster for Finding Dory

Finding Dory

6

Takes advantage of its oceanic setting by introducing us to a number of quotable sidekicks.

Poster for Now You See Me 2

Now You See Me 2

3

Lets down its actors and audience with a heist film that tries to be too smart for its own good.

2016

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

5

An easy, (very) low-brow comedy...

Poster for Zootopia

Zootopia

8

Disney’s most sophisticated and clever animated release in years.

Poster for Brooklyn

Brooklyn

6

For all the brilliant acting and aesthetic fine-tuning though, the story behind Brooklyn is relatively dull.

Poster for The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur

If you care too much about narrative and originality, it might be worth giving this one a miss.

He Named Me Malala

7

Paints Malala's story in a respectful light, both figuratively and literally; clever animated artworks of Pakistan help progress the narrative.

Poster for How to Change the World

How to Change the World

7

A steady voice delivers his prose in a rhythmic manner, a nostalgic accompaniment to grainy archival shots of Greenpeace’s early days.

Poster for A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods

5

Ultimately its inability to bring Bryon’s persona to life holds it back from being anything more than a nice travel film.

2015.09.01

2015

Pride

8

The knowledge that Pride is a true story gives every scene and every character an extra ounce of legitimacy.

2015.03.26

2015

Poster for Get Hard

Get Hard

4

As formulaic, stereotypical, and unoriginal as most American red-label comedies come.

2015.03.26

2015

Big Eyes

8

Rather than take the film down a psychological road, Burton keeps the film light and accessible.

2015.03.19

2015

The Mule

7

Engaging editing and cinematography give the film a lighter look than most crime films...

What We Do in the Shadows

7

The diversity of perspectives ensures that there are enough gags to keep the film moving.

Poster for Magic in the Moonlight

Magic in the Moonlight

7

Seems to neither endorse nor dismiss religion, instead showing us that both perspectives are valid...

Poster for Sex Tape

Sex Tape

6

The likeable characters and their awkward dilemmas should be enough to please audiences...

2014.07.17

Beatriz's War

An important reminder for aid-giving countries to not forget about Timor Leste...

2014.07.10

Tim's Vermeer

There’s something strangely compelling about this documentary, making it one of the most unique films you are likely to see all year.
