Moana

Disney delivers with this instant classic that's part anthropology, part mythology and pure imagination.

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

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Although it doesn’t quite live up to its legacy, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is a promising return to the Harry Potter franchise.

An alien craft hovers above the water in "Arrival," a 2016 Paramount Pictures release directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Arrival

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

A breezily entertaining flick that will pass the time, but deserves neither the accolades or vitriol that have been heaved its way.
