An atmospheric period-piece murder mystery, The Limehouse Golem combines elements of Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper.

While "Logan Lucky" is 3/4ths of a very good movie, the final half-hour becomes narratively unfocused as it strives to tie up some loose ends.

Run Time: 1:23
U.S. Release Date: 2017-06-16
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Fiona Gordon, Dominque Abel
Cast: Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva

A flight of whimsical fancy; a comedy fueled by meticulously choreographed humor.

Anyone who’s up for something ominous and unsettling could do worse than to choose "Life".

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Release Date: 2017-02-10
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Chris McKay
Cast: Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, Ralph Fiennes

Witty, bright, and makes a great contrast/alternative to DC’s current line of serious live-action films.

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

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Release Date: 2016-12-25
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Garth Davis
Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, David Wenham, Sunny Pawar, Abhishek Bharate, Pryanka Bose

Flaws aside, it’s an amazing tale of resilience and determination.

Run Time: 2:03
U.S. Release Date: 2016-11-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Adult Themes, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Jeff Nichols
Cast: Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Christopher Mann, Marton Csokas, Nick Kroll, Jon Bass, Michael Shannon, Bill Camp

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: 2:12
U.S. Release Date: 2016-09-02
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Sexual Content, Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Derek Cianfrance
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Jack Thompson, Bryan Brown

It’s a well-made, serious drama arriving in an era when those qualities rarely describe multiplex fare.

Unlike so many of the bloated, disappointing entries into the 2016 big budget sweepstakes, this is good escapist entertainment.
