The Magnificent Seven is flawed and full of cliches but the cast is fun enough to make it an enjoyable trip to the wild, wild west.

Blair Witch is pretty much a roided up remake of the original, except it’s not scary.

Sully is good, just not great. But thanks to another fantastic performance from Tom Hanks, it’s a promising start to awards season.

‘Southside With You’ is an engaging, interesting peek into the lives of two influential people, played by a couple of actors who do a superb job slipping into characters much of the world knows quite well.

But from its nerve-racking opening, through a series of darkly comedic bank heists, and all the way to its quiet climax, Hell Or High Water is a tightly constructed film that smartly tweaks Western tropes while leaving viewers exhilarated.

Sausage Party is yet another dumb stoner comedy from Rogen and his idiot friends. Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing at all wrong with a good stoner animated comedy. We need these, I get it. But this feels like something these boys would have done years ago. Aren’t they past this phase in their careers yet?

For awhile after seeing ‘Lights Out’ I wondered if my enjoyment of the film was for not entirely respectable reasons, if I enjoyed it for reasons closer to that of an MST3K film than that of a truly solid genre effort. But you know what? If something is fun I’m gonna tell the world it’s fun, and dammit this film is fun.

I enjoyed The Music of Strangers quite a lot. It’s no masterpiece, nor necessarily worth multiple viewings, but it’s a strong effort from a fine documentarian.

The good news is this movie isn’t the abomination the prognosticators predicted. It’s funny, which is all that matters and yes, it’s pretty dumb. No, it’s not destined for instant classic status, but it doesn’t tarnish the Ghostbusters name — Ghostbusters II already did that years ago.
