Based on the popular book of the same name, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a perfect playground for director Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) to play in, as well as a great showcase for the amazing Eva Green (Casino Royale, Penny Dreadful).

Director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer) remakes the classic Yul Brynner western from 1960, itself a remake of The Seven Samurai. Denzel Washington (Training Day, Remember the Titans) leads the pack this time out and the result is a rousing and very enjoyable western thanks in large part to its all-star cast.
Academy Award Winning filmmaker Oliver Stone (JFK, Platoon) directs star Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this biopic of Edward Snowden. Despite being familiar territory for Stone, Snowden has a hard time rising above being an average government thriller than being something much more of the moment and urgent that it desperately wants to be, despite another solid showing from star Levitt.
Director Clint Eastwood guides Tom Hanks in the true story Sully, the acclaimed pilot who pulled off “The Miracle on the Hudson”, saving over 150 passengers and crew in the process. Eastwood deftly pulls off this engrossing drama with huge help from Hanks, who delivers yet another fantastic performance.
Ben-Hur is a remake of the Oscar winning 1959 Charlton Heston classic, which was also a remake, interestingly enough. This iteration, starring Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman, fails to live up to its predecessors, making for a bland and forgettable filmgoing experience.
Disney continues the recent trend of remakes of their beloved classics with Pete’s Dragon, and like The Jungle Book and Cinderella, this particular version proves to be a successful and surprisingly emotional update of the 70s original.
Taking place in the same cinematic universe as this years Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad takes the biggest and baddest villains of those two heroes and puts them together for the first time on screen. The movie itself is a bit messy, but overall these eclectic characters and the actors playing them deliver a good time at the theater.
Jason Bourne finds director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon returning to the franchise they left nine years ago with The Bourne Ultimatum. Though not as good as previous entries, Jason Bourne is fueled with tense action and a rapid fire pace, proving to be well worth the return.
Star Trek Beyond is the third installment in this rebooted version of the classic television series, and thanks to wonderful cast interaction and a focused story, Beyond proves to be a treat for old and new fans alike.
Director Paul Feig has successfully rebooted the comedy classic Ghostbusters thanks to a winning cast made up of some of the funniest and most talented comedians working today.
