5/10 61% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Pictorial beauty in a David Lean sort of way and a mesmerizing quality might convince a viewer 'The Light Between Oceans,' a contrived and emotionally manipulative tale, has real credibility.‐

5/10 71% Café Society (2016) The movie's final grace note is deeply felt, so much so you wish Woody Allen had chosen another route to get there.‐

5 59% Money Monster (2016) It's 'Dog Day Afternoon' meets 'Network' meets 'Inside Man' meets 'The King of Comedy' and that's far too many 'meets' to strike an original cord.‐
