    A lovely film and another impressive calling card for Bayona, who can mix genres in an innovative way like his former producer, Guillermo del Toro. He's created a deeply emotional film about loss that will probably have you crying by film's end.

    The best thing the director has going for this one is the talented young actor playing Ricky Baker, as he constantly tries to emulate his tough "gangsta" heroes like Tupac Shakur. (He even names his dog "Tupac.")

    Wan's secret weapons are clearly Wilson and Farmiga, both such good actors they're able to sell the audience on everything the Warrens experience. The duo also does a great job selling the romantic bond between the Warrens, which helps you fall in love with them as much as you end up falling for the entire Hodgson family.

    Acclaimed filmmaker Ken Loach is a master at capturing the day-to-day of British life, and this film, which won the coveted Palm D'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival, is no exception. That said, it may be easier for some to decipher the heavy British accents than others.

    With his second film, Alvarez has mastered the tension of Hitchcock and the misdirection of a magician, proving himself to be a filmmaker of merit even when dealing with more realistic horrors.

    What makes Southside With You work so beautifully is that it could be a romantic comedy about two strangers, but because the characters are based on two people we feel we know pretty well, it adds another layer to the unfolding relationship drama.

    This is the kind of movie "Trolls" set out to be and with this kind of innovation in animation, it succeeds on far more levels as well. There are just so many laughs to be had but there's also plenty of warmth with a lot of focus put on each contestant's family.

    As dumb as "Mike and Dave" can get, it's a surprisingly fun summer comedy and icing on the (wedding) cake for fans of the raunchiest of humor.

    Once again, it's Evan Peters' Quicksilver who steals the movie whenever we see his powers in action, maybe because they've found a unique way to showcase them. There's even a fun but unnecessary tangent involving another popular "X-Men" character.

    There are a few points where Rogen and company go way too far, but even in those cases, you may find yourself trying hard not to laugh and failing miserably.

    Some of the characters' fate might be left in a frustratingly open-ended fashion, but Cuéron has created an impressive edge-of-your-seat thriller set within a fantastic outdoors environment.

    For those who enjoy the goriest of thrillers, there is plenty of red running through Green Room.

    With the added layer of humor that comes with switching genders, Neighbors 2 ends up offering even more laughs than the original movie.

    While the central visual of the figure in the dark goes a long way to provide the essential scares, the success of the film is just as much about what the filmmakers do to develop the characters that the audience cares about.

    The nearly three-hour runtime, though, may be one of the film's biggest hurdles. But the time seems necessary for a story that adds more layers the further we're taken down the rabbit hole.

    Maybe Keanu would have been stronger in the hands of a more experienced director — they brought Peter Atencio over from their show — but Key and Peele know how to deliver the laughs and killer chemistry.

    Some viewers may be surprised by how good Bana is doing comedy. Same with Farmiga, but that allows Gervais to leave some of the heavier lifting as far as acting to his co-stars. Gervais has again done a solid job writing and directing his own material.

    It's fair to say that Inferno won't be for everyone, but those who have stuck through Howard and Hanks' previous Dan Brown adaptations should find enough thrills to keep them interested in solving the mystery.

    With all the action movies that have come before, it's tough to make car chases and fist fights seem original and exciting, but fortunately, there's enough of a story to keep things interesting even when you might feel a sense of déjà vu.

    At times, the latest Barbershop might get too serious for some, but as far as the comedy goes, it remains a cut above the rest.

    If you enjoy slightly awkward romance during wartime, Allied is worth a fling.

    The young cast is generally okay. The real pleasure is the rare appearance by Oscar winner Faye Dunaway, who plays as a woman who may know how to defeat this spirit.

    Trolls just feels very formulaic, and having a pop superstar like Timberlake in your voice cast, and deliberately not having him sing until near the end just seems like a waste of that talent.

    Fans will probably appreciate Suicide Squad for trying something different — and it gets bonus points for diversity — but the weaker characters and generally weak plot keep it from being one of the better comic book movies.

    Does its best to include as much fan fodder as it does kiddie fare with the distinct personalities of the four Turtles — "Mikey," "Leo," "Raph" and "Donnie" — faithful enough to previous incarnations that both should be happier with the sequel over its predecessor.

    Ouija: Origin of Evil offers some easy scares and cheesy fun, but if nothing else, it gets points for not losing sight of its characters amidst those scares.

    Despite the genre and setting, this is still very much a performance piece, and Lively is more than just a pretty face and bikini bod. She has to do a lot with very little to work with other than a scene-stealing seagull.

    In some ways, Pesce's film is often more disturbing for what it doesn't show than what it does, with the last act probably the hardest to watch.
    • 68 Metascore

    Despite the movie's darker tone, there's still room for humor when you have rooms full of diplomats and scientists discussing how to contend with a "giant unidentified creature."
    • 57 Metascore

    Generally, one expects political thrillers to offer a little more suspense or excitement, so when this is such a deathly dull affair, you wonder what you might be missing.
