|75 T7||Moonlight (2016) - Feb 10, 2017
"It's a really good film but for me the essence got lost in the three-part structure and frankly the hype. I liked different things about the different parts but I don't feel like they jelled or complimented each other perfectly. Overall for me it didn't pack the punch I feel the subject matter deserved. Found it a bit too subdued and somehow slightly too janky in its exposition. Honestly, the first act is the strongest and its downhill from there, leaving me slightly underwhelmed. Solid though."
|75 T7||Moana (2016) - Feb 05, 2017
"The first act is fantastic. The animation, setting, and atmosphere is stunning. The actual voyage was a bit hit and miss for me, but for every time it falls through a bit the music brings it back to life two times over, coming very close to Princess and the Frog-quality. Disney's songwriters are actual geniuses, seriously."
|75 T7||I, Daniel Blake (2016) - Jan 23, 2017
"The story is great but not the best craftsmanship I've seen. The ending is somehow underwhelming. Definitely worth a watch."
|100 T10||Lion (2016) - Jan 19, 2017
"Most of the parts of this movie work really well both independently and together. There's a bit too much google maps-ing - it's not too interesting to watch, but forgivable. Strong performances overall, glimpses of fantastic cinematography and a really good balance of tone for my taste. Just short of Slumdog Millionaire."
|0 T1||Split (2017) - Jan 19, 2017
"Shyamalan has exceeded himself in every way; A masterclass in completely terrible filmmaking. Words fail me. That ending, oh boy - hold on to your faces. Poor McAvoy really could have used a director on this film."
|75 T7||Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen (2016) - Jan 19, 2017
"This is just a really great story and the animation is wonderful. Timeless and surprsingly nuanced."
|0 T1||Assassin's Creed (2016) - Jan 15, 2017
"Poorly conceived. Poorly executed. Garbage."
|25 T2||The Untamed (2016) - Jan 12, 2017
"I'm surprised at how unbelievably boring and uninteresting they managed to make this premise."
|100 T10||Manchester by the Sea (2016) - Jan 08, 2017
"I had to watch this twice to fully appreciate it. One of the most nuanced films I can recall and Casey Affleck's performance in this is one of the best I've ever seen. For those who weren't fully captivated by this film: try watching it again. It'll get ya. "
|75 T7||A Time to Kill (1996) - Jan 05, 2017
"The characters are caricatures but the performances are great. Poor Ashley Judd was way out of her depths though. "
