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.

A Man Called Ove

A splendidly acted and oddly sweet film about a miserable old man who finds he doesn't like the story he's been telling of himself.

Alice Through the Looking Glass - featured

Alice Through the Looking Glass

It died a quick death at the box office, but "Alice Through the Looking Glass" is a charming, colorful romp that exceeds the original.
American Honey

American Honey

Frequently engaging and beautifully shot, but at 163 minutes there is almost enough material for two full movies and it washes, rinses, repeats.

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.

Godzilla: Resurgence

"Godzilla: Resurgence" is the closest the franchise has come to recapturing the original "Gojira" film.

How the West Was Won - featured

How the West Was Won (1962)

Epic more in aesthetics than scope, "How the West Was Won" used Cinerama to try and lure audiences back into the theaters at the close of the Golden Age.

The Legend of Tarzan

A confusing addition to the ape-man oeuvre until you realize its true mold is the 1981 softcore version starring Bo Derek. Except here we're ogling the guy.


Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

One of the best remakes ever, and a classic of the sci-fi/horror genre.

The Girl on the Train

This psychosexual thriller desperately wants to be the next "Gone Girl," but the audience will reach the final stop far ahead of the train.


The Birth of a Nation

A film of exquisite beauty exploring the ugliest chapter in the story of America. It is a chorus of rage, sung without malice but also without apology.

Buried Treasures: Silver Streak

While “Silver Streak” is obviously a comedy, it also works as a mystery film and a rollicking adventure.


X-Men: Apocalypse

A bit overlong and overstuffed with unnecessary distractions, but "X-Men: Apocalypse" ably continues the mutant superhero saga.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Good but not great, “Miss Peregrine’s” reminds you over and over that it’s a Tim Burton film without emulating the magic of his previous movies.
