Cast: Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, Michelle Monaghan, J.K. Simmons, Alex Wolff, Themo Melikidze, Melissa Benoist

The movie hits all the milestones although it perhaps tries too hard to be uplifting and inspirational.

Not the best of its kind but aims to say something rather than merely satisfy by copious bloodletting.

In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Morten Tyldum
Cast: Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne

An odd movie but its central questions and dilemmas are compelling and there’s enough here of substance for the impressions to linger.

An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.

As one of 2016’s most anticipated films, it doesn’t let down the legions who have been waiting for it.

As a dramatic thriller, it does what it needs to do to keep the audience involved and interested.

Cast: Auli’I Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Jermaine Clement, Temeura Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Alan Tudyk

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