  • Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Review

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is an uneven, but otherwise passable wartime comedy/drama anchored by Tina Fey’s performance.

  • London Has Fallen Review

    London Has Fallen is an uninspired sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, but has some of its predecessor’s cheesy action movie throwback charm.

  • Triple 9 Review

    Triple 9 has elements of greatness, but its talented cast and inspired directorial flourishes are offset by messy storytelling choices.

  • Zoolander 2 Review

    Zoolander 2 aims to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor, but amounts to a serviceable (though less memorable) comedy sequel.

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is unwieldy horror-comedy – delivering an amusing but gimmicky blend of Regency-era romance and zombie mythology.

  • The Finest Hours Review

    The Finest Hours is a respectful dramatization of the real-life events that inspired it, but is too by the numbers to leave a strong impression.

  • Kung Fu Panda 3 Review

    Kung Fu Panda 3 is a well-meaning piece of escapism for kids – one that shows signs of wear in the larger computer-animated kung fu franchise.

  • Ride Along 2 Review

    Ride Along 2 is an uninspired retread of its predecessor, but manages to reach the (low) bar set for this action/comedy franchise.

  • 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi Review

    13 Hours has elements of a lean and efficient action/thriller, but is bloated and overblown thanks to Michael Bay’s directorial approach.

  • The Forest Review

    The Forest struggles to transform its spooky premise and haunting setting into memorable or unique on-screen movie scares.

  • Daddy’s Home Review

    Daddy’s Home is a formulaic Will Ferrell comedy, but enough jokes hit their mark to make it a passable one.

  • Krampus Review

    Krampus isn’t as clever or scary as Christmas horror/comedies past, but provides enough kitschy fun for those craving a darker holiday yarn.

    (26) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Victor Frankenstein Review

    Victor Frankenstein is an entertainingly kooky, but otherwise messy and slapdash re-imagining of the Frankenstein mythos.

    (3) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Secret in Their Eyes Review

    Secret in Their Eyes is a well-acted and politically-charged drama/thriller with ambitions that exceed its grasp.

  • Spectre Review

    Unfortunately, Spectre is to Skyfall what Quantum of Solace was to Casino Royale; that is to say: less inspired in just about every way.

    (126) by Kofi Outlaw
  • Burnt Review

    Burnt fails as a character study, but thrives when bringing the fast-moving world of professional chefs to cinematic life.

    (9) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse Review

    Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is completely uneven but guilty fun – a horror film sendup that will cull as many haters as cult followers.

  • Our Brand is Crisis Review

    Our Brand is Crisis stumbles in turning the 2002 Bolivian presidential election into a cohesive dramedy but the film is packed with memorable humor.

  • Jem and the Holograms Review

    What good intentions Jem and the Holograms has are weighed down by its cheap aesthetic and thinly-drawn storyline.

    (14) by Sandy Schaefer
  • The Last Witch Hunter Review

    Dazzling visuals and fun supernatural brawls can’t save The Last Witch Hunter from a cliché plot and uneven Vin Diesel performance.

    (31) by Ben Kendrick
  • Bridge of Spies Review

    Bridge of Spies is a bit of dull historical theater, propped up by the talents of Spielberg, Tom Hanks and the Coen Bros.

    (53) by Kofi Outlaw
  • Crimson Peak Review

    Crimson Peak is a classic case of style over substance resulting in a hollow movie experience that never fully reaches its potential.

    (46) by Kofi Outlaw
  • Pan Review

    Pan falls short at being either an imaginative origin story for Peter Pan and/or a satisfying standalone big-budget fantasy adventure.

    (28) by Sandy Schaefer
  • The Intern Review

    The Intern is an insubstantial Nancy Meyers comedy kept afloat by Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway’s screen chemistry.

    (11) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Hotel Transylvania 2 Review

    Hotel Transylvania 2 offers cute but brainless escapism for young moviegoers – as well as parents looking to distract their children for a few hours.
