  • Fist Fight Review

    Fist Fight Review

    Fist Fight may be as slight as a half-hour sitcom comedy, but enough of its R-Rated jokes hit their target to sustain the movie’s brisk runtime.

  • The Great Wall Review

    The Great Wall Review

    Despite some inspired elements, The Great Wall is an odd mashup of Hollywood monster blockbuster and sweeping Chinese fantasy epic.

  • Fifty Shades Darker Review

    Fifty Shades Darker Review

    While Fifty Shades Darker exceeds its predecessor in some ways, in other respects it’s just as ridiculous (if not more so) by comparison.

  • Rings Review

    Rings Review

    Rings is a mediocre horror sequel handicapped by poor writing that will only appeal to die hard fans of the genre and source material.

  • Sadako v Kayako Review

    Sadako v Kayako Review

    Sadako v Kayako (The Ring v The Grudge) won’t win over the uninitiated, but fans of both franchises should have a good time with this crossover.

  • Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

    The Final Chapter meets the standard for mindless thrills set by the previous Resident Evil films, ending the series on more of a shrug than a bang.

  • xXx: Return of Xander Cage Review

    xXx: Return of Xander Cage Review

    xXx: Return of Xander Cage serves up all the expected over-the-top action, but it won’t win the series any new fans due to various shortcomings.

  • Monster Trucks Review

    Monster Trucks Review

    Monster Trucks is an OK kids movie that lacks most of the substance of the classic 1980s Amblin productions it tries to emulate.

  • Live by Night Review

    Live by Night Review

    Live by Night is a dense and disorganized movie adaptation in which Ben Affleck covers too much ground for any one story or character to succeed.

  • Why Him? Review

    Why Him? Review

    Why Him? falls victim to its genre’s clichés, but Cranston and Franco make for an entertaining odd couple comedic pairing.

  • Passengers Review

    Passengers Review

    Despite decent chemistry between the leads and a fascinating concept, Passengers is a bland, unsatisfying sci-fi story that fails to connect.

  • Assassin’s Creed Review

    Assassin’s Creed Review

    Assassin’s Creed is a step in the right direction for video game movies but slick action and beautiful visuals are undercut by a hollow hero story.

  • Office Christmas Party Review

    Office Christmas Party Review

    Office Christmas Party is a decent studio comedy, but its entertaining parts do not add up to a cohesive whole.

  • Bad Santa 2 Review

    Bad Santa 2 Review

    Bad Santa 2 is another late comedy sequel that fails to catch lightning in a bottle again with a poor script and weak characters.

    Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk is a well-intentioned misfire that cannot live up to its higher aspirations.

  • Trolls Review

    Trolls Review

    Trolls is solid, visually-stunning entertainment for kids with a positive message, but there isn’t much there for adults.

  • Inferno Review

    Inferno Review

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

  • Keeping Up with the Joneses Review

    Keeping Up with the Joneses Review

    Despite a fun premise, Keeping Up with the Joneses is a mildly entertaining comedy that’s very generic.

  • Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Review

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Review

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back does not offer enough high-octane action or clever mystery to stand out from the glut of so-so crime movies.

  • The Girl on the Train Review

    The Girl on the Train Review

    Despite a strong performance by Emily Blunt, The Girl on the Train is a middling thriller without much to offer.

  • The Birth of a Nation Review

    The Birth of a Nation Review

    The Birth of a Nation is a work of passion-fueled filmmaking and messy storytelling that struggles to make the grand statement it aims for.

  • Masterminds Review

    Masterminds Review

    Although not a disaster, Masterminds is a disposable and middling off-kilter heist comedy that squanders its cast’s talents on subpar material.

  • Morgan Review

    Morgan Review

    It toys with some interesting concepts, but Morgan ultimately favors generic action over developing its core ideas into something more fascinating.

  • Mechanic: Resurrection Review

    Mechanic: Resurrection Review

    Mechanic: Resurrection is a mindless B-movie with little substance of note, but those who enjoy Statham should have a fun time.

  • Bad Moms Review

    Bad Moms Review

    Bad Moms deserves credit for mixing things up in the genre, but its reliance on caricatures prevents it from being as memorable as it could have been.
