Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Movie Review

The new "Jack Reacher" film title could actually be taken as a warning... which I'll be certain to heed in the future.

The Accountant Movie Review

For a movie that celebrates precision, "The Accountant" has a lot of loose ends.

The Girl on the Train Movie Review

"The Girl on the Train" is a modestly entertaining and faithful adaptation of Paul Hawkins' best-selling novel.

Birth of a Nation Movie Review

"Birth of a Nation" isn't perfect but it's clearly passionate, a brutally effective depiction of the monstrous indignity of slavery that's sure to generate powerful discussions.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Movie Review

As peculiar as it may be, Tim Burton's adaptation of the Ransom Riggs' novel holds little of interest, particularly to those who haven't read the book.

A Man Called Ove Movie Review

Swedish entry for best foreign film is the best film I've seen so far in 2016.

The Lovers and the Despot Movie Review

Documentary re-telling of when the dictator of North Korea kidnapped the leading director and actress from South Korea. Good, but not enough tension.

Command and Control Movie Review

Documentary tells us how lucky we are not to have been destroyed a hundred times over by accidents involving nuclear weapons. Not quite as depressing as it could be.

A remake of the classic western probably sounded like a great idea - particularly with this cast - but this soulless update will do little to advance the genre.

Bridget Jones's Baby Movie Review

"Bridget Jones's Baby" is an expectedly easy film to digest but it's wildly unnecessary.
