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.
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” isn’t a bad movie, it just forgets itself. In trying too hard to be both Jason Bourne and Will Hunting, it wanders into absurdity.

Denial

A straightforward Oscar-bait drama (with magnificent performances) about a famous libel case involving Holocaust denial.
Shia LeBeouf plays Jake, costarring with Sasha Lane in "American Honey"

American Honey

A freewheeling look at a young woman looking for adventure on the road, "American Honey" is the spiritual successor to Larry Clark's "Kids."

The Magnificent Seven

"The Merely Adequate Seven" doesn't have quite the same ring, but it's high enough praise for a skilled remake of a remake with no purpose for existing.

Suicide Squad

Though it takes a while to get rolling, "Suicide Squad" is a fun and freewheeling departure from the superhero genre.

The Hollars

Though it may offer zero surprises in its familiar wayward-child-returns-home story, "The Hollars" features a terrific cast that's always interesting and alive.

Kubo and the Two Strings

The year's best animated film didn't fare well at the box office, so here's hoping its magic will enchant a wider audience on video.
