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

An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.

"Snowden" could have been an important film. Sadly, unlike its subject, it’s unremarkable and easily forgotten.

Although not an Oscar-worthy endeavor, "Sully" proves to be by turns engaging, exhilarating, and nail-biting.

Gets props for kinetic energy and a couple of bravura performances but pretty much everything else is either mediocre or substandard.

"Star Trek Beyond" is a Star Trek movie, although not an especially good one.

An entertaining but inconsequential animated movie with a strong "Toy Story" influence.

It’s a disappointment when a film ends on a sour note if it’s the only part of the experience that doesn’t work.
