At its best, it feels like an echo of its predecessor. At its worst, it’s unfunny, crass, and uncomfortable (not in a good way).

If "Moana" seems like a throwback to the animated Disney films of the late 1980s and early 1990s, it’s not a coincidence.

"Allied" probably isn’t prestigious enough to attract much Oscar buzz but it’s too good to be tossed into theaters without a publicity push.

Features some nice performances and contains some strong material but, as a whole, the movie is too slow and too long to really work.

With a smart, perceptive script and an arresting lead performance by Hailee Steinfeld, the film rises to the top of a crowded genre.

Represents an effective melding of visceral and intellectual filmmaking.

"Fantastic Beasts" is an enjoyable stand-alone but its position as the progenitor of a new franchise remains unclear.

Although it could be argued that "Loving" does little more than bring life to a Wikipedia entry, it does so with tact and craftsmanship.

Run Time: 1:56
U.S. Release Date: 2016-11-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Adult Themes, Profanity)
Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mark O’Brien, Tzi Ma

This is a singularly powerful movie, without question one of 2016’s best.

There are times when the visuals are dazzling and dizzying but there’s also a sense that we’re watching something created on a computer as opposed to a genuine bending of reality.
