Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.
A perfect time capsule that gives a real sense of what it was like to breathe the air of a recognizable yet wholly different New York City.
Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.
An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.
"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.
An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.
Although not an Oscar-worthy endeavor, "Sully" proves to be by turns engaging, exhilarating, and nail-biting.
An entertaining but inconsequential animated movie with a strong "Toy Story" influence.
