  1. Field, as usual, goes all-out; the film may be a comedy, but she attains a few moments of real heartbreak.
  2. South African director Gavin Hood (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine’’) pulls off some really tricky tonal shifts.
  3. There aren’t enough movies in which Tina Fey fires an AK-47 while grinning maniacally. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot turns out to make excellent use of her established skills while revealing new ones: It’s “30 Rock Me to the Casbah.”
  4. Where Zhao excels is in the range of emotions she gets from a mostly nonprofessional cast.
  5. The year’s best film so far.
  6. Racist, stupid and boasting cheesy effects.
  7. Chop up the film’s segments, replay them in any order, and things would make no more or less sense.
  8. The film begins by telegraphing impending doom (and wraps up, underwhelmingly, with thriller clichés).
  9. The Wave, competent as it is, lacks the heart-rending power of the similar 2012 tsunami movie “The Impossible.”
  10. Scary and sad, Trapped is for anyone who cares about the precarious future of reproductive health for American women.
  11. Like the lobby of a Donald Trump building, it looks ever so expensive and amazingly cheap at the same time.
  12. Hugh Jackman, as a (fictional) former American jumper named Bronson Peary, enlivens things a little.
  13. In the end, this relentlessly nihilistic crime-caper thriller adds up to less than the sum of its impressive parts.
  14. Frankel has a fine eye for telling detail, and the result, while sentimental, is as irresistible as the dessert cart.
  15. “I see dead people,” Adrien Brody all but exclaims in Backtrack, a movie that tries to make a choo-choo out of “The Sixth Sense” but immediately goes off the rails.
  16. Hitler didn’t actually snub Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympics, but the story is too good not to tell, so Race tells it anyway — adding the (true) detail that Owens was snubbed back home. By someone called “the White House,” because this supposedly truth-telling movie can’t bear to spell out the words Franklin D. Roosevelt.
  17. It’s a creepy little gem, and its imagery will stay with you long after you’ve left the theater.
  18. Tautly directed by Kiefer’s longtime “24’’ helmer Jon Cassar, Forsaken greatly benefits from the poignant teaming of its father-and-son stars — as well as Michael Wincott as an especially elegant and eloquent gunfighter who has great respect for John.
  19. A sudden lurch into trippy abstraction at the end simply doesn’t work, but for the vast majority of the time this is a strong and original film.
  20. Risen veers so far off the Bible’s path that it might as well be a tale of this 13th apostle, called Marty, who was in charge of snacks and mini-golf reservations.
  21. Stiller’s one good idea is turning things over to Will Ferrell, who does some amusingly demented things while haranguing Anna Wintour and Tommy Hilfiger and is probably funnier in his sleep than Stiller is at his best.
  22. This one is a “different kind of superhero movie,” meaning even more fiercely attached to the mode of artistic expression known as “puberty.”
  23. It will probably not surprise you to learn that this film, generically directed by Christian Ditter (“Love, Rosie”), was written by the people behind 2009’s “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Seven years later, guess what? He’s still not that into you! And I wouldn’t be, either, not with this lot.
  24. This well-intentioned drama — writer/director Paul Dalio has spoken publicly about his own struggles — veers into a common pitfall of films that portray mental illness: Romanticizing it.
  25. Despite a too-tidy wrap-up, it’s a humane film, one that sees the war as a tragedy for the Afghans, not just Western soldiers.
  26. I was too bored to hate the movie. Besides, who hates a stuffed animal? If it actually said something intelligent or surprising, you’d be alarmed, not pleased.
  27. What really makes Hail, Caesar! sing are the Coens’ painstaking period simulations of scenes from five films,including not only “Hail, Caesar!” but a synchronized swimming routine a la Busby Berkeley and a corny musical Western.
  28. It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a pretty silly idea. So why on Earth is this movie, based on the satirical book by Seth Grahame-Smith, not having more fun?
  29. Some handsome location shooting in New Orleans doesn’t make up for the Oscar winners’ relentless hamming and a plot that twists way beyond credibility.
  30. The Club offers plenty of stifling, agonized atmosphere, but it’s all penitence and no redemption.
