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.

Run Time: 2:11
U.S. Release Date: 2016-11-04
MPAA Rating: "R" (War Violence)
Genre: War/Drama
Director: Mel Gibson
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey

Embraces many of the clichés of the war movie but, instead of laying them out in a rote fashion, the film synthesizes them into a visceral, ultimately inspirational result.

Run Time: 2:24
U.S. Release Date: 2016-11-04
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Chan-wook Park
Cast: Min-hee Kim, Tae-Ri Kim, Jung-woo Ha, Jin-woong Cho

One of the best neo-Hitchcockian mystery/thrillers to have emerged from any country in any language during the last few years, if not longer.

Run Time: 2:01
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-28
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster, Ana Ularu

Watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Edward Zwick
Cast: Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Robert Knepper, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger

A jumble of overhyped action scenes, trite dialogue, painfully bad “character development”, and awful writing.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Patton Oswalt

A paint-by-numbers, creatively bankrupt “comedy” emerging from a studio system that has largely forgotten what it means to be genuinely funny.

Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.

Provides a solid starting place for a series or, if the box office doesn’t warrant a continuation, an engaging stand-alone thriller.

Run Time: 1:50
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Mature Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Mick Jackson
Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall, Andrew Scott, Jack Lowden, Caren Pistorius

It’s strangely refreshing to watch a courtroom drama where theatricality doesn’t trump meticulous examination.
