Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt star in "Allied," a 2016 Paramount Pictures release directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Allied

The most atypical Robert Zemeckis film yet — sacrificing his burnished gentleness and wowing spectacle for something gruff and grim but supremely entertaining.
Richie Gecko (Quentin Tarantino) and Seth Gecko (George Clooney) look on in disbelief as Santanico Pandemonium (Salma Hayek) holds court in 1996's "From Dusk Till Dawn," a Dimension Films release.

Class of 1996: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’

Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez's vampire-siege flick sizzles like capsaicin-spiked grindhouse meatloaf baked & served under the wire of its sell-by date.

Tom Cruise plays Jack Reacher in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

The worst movie Tom Cruise has ever made. Sadder still? He knows it, too.
Before he cracks heads, Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) must crunch some numbers in "The Accountant," a 2016 action-drama from Warner Brothers.

The Accountant

"The Accountant" embraces icy reserve early before turning blowtorches of dull sentiment, clunky exposition, unsurprising surprises & illogical twists upon it.

Deepwater Horizon

A multimillion-dollar movie about mistakes made to hold onto one-millionth of a profit percentage, but it mostly finds value in the right places.
Brenda (Kristen Wiig), Frank (Seth Rogen), Sammy Bagel Jr. and Vash (David Krumholtz) face a threat in "Sausage Party," a 2016 Sony Pictures release directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan.

Sausage Party

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's "Book of Mormon" moment — a marvelously animated, ecumenically equal-opportunity offender with hope, heart, humor, heroism & heft.

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) insists upon answers from his past in "Jason Bourne," a 2016 Universal Pictures release directed by Paul Greengrass.

Jason Bourne

Like watching a trio of NBA All-Stars, whom you know haven’t lost a step, return to the court and perform nothing but a three-man weave drill for two hours.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

As funny and on-point as adventure movies get. A sweet movie about innocence neither lost nor found, but rather molded, maintained and celebrated.
