Movie Reviews

Certain Women

Three disparate tales of Montana women rise and fall on the strength of the individual stories.
Through reams of archival footage, A24's "Oasis: Supersonic" takes a look at the Britpop band fronted by brothers Noel (left) and Liam Gallagher.

Oasis: Supersonic

There are few rock 'n' roll flameouts more fascinating than Oasis, but this superficial documentary is too much champagne, not enough supernova.

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.

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.

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.

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.

David Oyelowo is Robert Katende and Madina Nalwanga is Phiona Mutesi in Disney's QUEEN OF KATWE, the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess.

Queen of Katwe

A typical sports underdog story with an exotic African backdrop, "Queen of Katwe" feels like a lot of random moves instead of a comprehensive narrative.

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.


Author: The JT LeRoy Story

An utterly fascinating exploration of the murky line in literature between inspirational and fraudulent, as well as the mystery of celebrity.

The Magnificent Seven

"The Magnificent Seven" is a well-built summer blockbuster that doesn't supplant the original but certainly doesn't shit in its bed.
