    The movie Loving might be the best cinematic representation of marriage and what it ultimately stands for
      As for the movie, Loving will stand as not only one of 2016's best, but undoubtedly as one of its most important.

    It’s fun to see the Potter-verse return, but its too bad it’s a bit dull
      See Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them knowing that 1) Things will probably get more exciting in future chapters and 2) Nifflers aren't half as interesting as Hippogriffs.

    Arrival is a good alien contact movie, but keep in mind it’s a bit laid back and happens to really be about universal love
      Arrival is a movie that gives itself time to breathe, and while it does have a few action scenes, it's, for the most part, intellectual fare.

    Without Inferno there’s no David Pumpkins, so thank you movie universe
      The film itself is easily the worst of the series, a series that was already pretty terrible.

    Ouija: Origin of Evil might be one of the best horror sequels ever made, really
      This is so much better than the first movie.

    The Accountant may seem crazy odd, but it’s also surprisingly good
      The Accountant is a ridiculous, implausible thriller, in some ways even more ridiculous than the recent, somewhat weak The Girl on the Train. So why did I end up liking it?

    A drunk detective riding the railroad just can’t stay on track
      Despite good performances from a cast that includes Emily Blunt, Justin Theroux and Alison Janney, director Tate Taylor's The Girl on the Train winds up being a little too ridiculous for a movie that wishes to be taken seriously.

    Deepwater Horizon is real-life blockbuster with substance and heart
      To call this a disaster film similar to those put out by Irwin Allen in the '70s is both a compliment (Hey, some of those where pretty great) and a bit belittling.

    Train to Busan is one zombie movie with heart, and that’s not on the undead menu
      Hold on to your hats everybody, because we got us here another zombie movie. I think this is something like the 5,732nd zombie movie or TV thing to come out in the last three years or so.

    Sausage Party is more than just a good weed time but a legit smart swipe at religion and politics
      There have been a few too many "more of the same" type movies at theaters this summer. Flat, big budget blockbusters and sequels without an ounce of creativity or originality puking out of the Hollywood industrial complex, delivering an astounding amount of expensive, vapid horse shit.
