Lion stars Dev Patel as Saroo, a boy lost thousands of miles from home in India

Lion

A worthy but overrated drama about a lost child longing to return home as an adult, "Lion" is the classic parable of the book being better than the movie.

Fences

Director/actor Denzel Washington and his cast bring us an amazing translation of August Wilson's play, penned by the playwright himself.

Moana

“Moana” is a completely original and delightful tale that pulls its inspiration from the mythology of the various Polynesian cultures.

Allied

It got lost in the shuffle of year-end Oscar hopefuls, but "Allied" is a top-drawer WWII drama that goes beyond the usual spy thriller tropes.

Trolls

A great fit for video. Set the kiddies up on the couch, press “play” and enjoy 92 minutes of bliss while you go into the next room and do something else.
Tom Cruise plays Jack Reacher in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

The cool thing about “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” is that it never forgets that it’s meant to be pure popcorn fun.

The Handmaiden

One of 2016's most unexpected and finest foreign films, “The Handmaiden” is a fascinating exploration of deceit, love and betrayal.

The Girl on the Train

Despite a strong performance by Emily Blunt, “The Girl on the Train” loses momentum as it goes rather than gaining it.
