149. Cardboard Boxer - Homelessness drama produces mixed reactions as it treads a fine line between empathy and exploitation. Full Blu-ray Review

148. Everybody Wants Some!! - Richard Linklater's authentic recreation of time and place is wasted on insufferable bros. Full Blu-ray + DVD Review

147. Bleed for This - Generic, uninspired boxing tale relies on underwhelming over-the-top caricature. Full Film Review

Dorothea (Annette Bening) and Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann) see a car catch fire in the parking lot of a grocery store in #145, "20th Century Women."

146. How to Be Single - A fairly routine ensemble romantic comedy that at least does not insult.
Full Blu-ray Review

140. One More Time - An okay but relatively unremarkable indie drama about an aging musician and his family. Full DVD Review

Meryl Streep plays Florence Foster Jenkins, an opera singer who can't sing in the one-joke comedy "Florence Foster Jenkins."

134. Barbershop: The Next Cut - A well-intentioned but not so graceful discussion of contemporary issues facing Chicago and the rest of the nation. Full Blu-ray Review

133. Miracles from Heaven - Polished yet corny faith-based drama. Full Blu-ray Review

Shan (Yun "Jelly" Lin) is appointed to seduce Mr. Liu so that her endangered kind may kill him in #132, the Chinese blockbuster "The Mermaid."

128. Into the Forest - An unusually believable, genre-bending apocalypse film. Full Blu-ray Review

127. Neruda - Turgid drama about the Chilean poet's political fugitivism fails to truly grab you.

126. Miss Sloane - An overlong and heavy-handed drama about modern lobbying. Full Film Review

Halloween or not, Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) takes a pressing phone call on New Orleans' bustling Bourbon Street in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back", also known as "A Jack Reacher Halloween."

125. Free State of Jones - Unpleasant Civil War revolt drama fails to provoke much of a reaction.

124. Puerto Ricans in Paris - A breezy buddy comedy-international mystery.

122. Mr. Church - A saccharine but well-intentioned drama. Full Blu-ray Review

121. Hands of Stone - Boxing biopic holds your interest without distinguishing itself in a major way. Full Blu-ray Review

120. The Infiltrator - An okay crime drama built largely on a fine Bryan Cranston performance. Full Blu-ray Review

119. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - A lesser supporting cast yields the diminished returns of a largely unwanted sequel. Full 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray Review

118. Come and Find Me - An adequate yet forgettable disappearance thriller/romantic dramedy. Full Blu-ray Review

In "The Legend of Tarzan", #117, Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) returns to Africa with a wise-cracking American Civil War veteran (Samuel L. Jackson) by his side.

117. The Legend of Tarzan - A visually striking but narratively underwhelming adventure. Full Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray + DVD Review

115. The Handmaiden - Interestingly constructed Korean drama has more style than substance. Full DVD Review

114. Certain Women - Distinctive storytelling is equal to the sum of its moderately engaging parts.

113. Bridget Jones's Baby - Untimely sequel is not the disaster you might anticipate. Full Film Review

112. Rules Don't Apply - Entertaining but disjointed passion project falls short of satisfying. Full Film Review

Full Blu-ray + DVD Review

110. Keeping Up with the Joneses - Suburban spy comedy is as spry as it needs to be. Full Film Review

109. Central Intelligence - A routine yet entertaining buddy action comedy. Full Blu-ray Review

108. X-Men: Apocalypse - Uncharacteristically underwhelming installment cools off the superhero franchise's hot streak.

107. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - A new source still provides more of Tim Burton's old whimsy.

106. The Salesman - Eventually grabs your attention with revenge ruminations, but it's a slow, bumpy ride there.

105. Tumbledown - An investable yet unremarkable indie dramedy. Full Blu-ray Review

104. Tanna - Narratively familiar drama is markedly different culturally. Full Blu-ray Review

103. Jane Got a Gun - Compelling western deserved a better fate. Full Blu-ray Review

102. The Angry Birds Movie - Gently diverting without any attempt to stretch itself creatively. Full Blu-ray + DVD Review
