12 Strong

For the soldiers, the mission is more important than the man. It's unfortunate that the movie's philosophy is the same.


Den of Thieves

Den of Thieves tells a story of generically bad cops and fundamentally bland robbers.


Forever My Girl

The movie is founded on a few fantasies: that Josie would basically wait for Liam, that the right woman can change a terrible guy, and that we're supposed to find any of this romantic.


Mary and the Witch's Flower

As the story moves into familiar territory, Mary and the Witch's Flower doesn't lose its sense of wonder. What it does lose is its sense of discovery.


The Final Year

Access means nothing if you don't do anything of worth with it.


Small Town Crime

It's a straightforward mystery, but it's strengthened by a collection of eclectic but recognizable characters.


Mom & Dad

What Mom & Dad has to say about the parent-child relationship is intriguing, but how the movie says those things is at once overblown and undercooked.


The Commuter

The concept and the execution fall apart in gradual stages.


Paddington 2

The utterly delightful Paddington 2 feels like the right film for this moment in time.
