Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
84% While We're Young (2015) " While We're Young may very well turn out to be Baumbach's magnum opus. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 27, 2015
29% Get Hard (2015) " Get Hard has grand ambitions, packaging trenchant social commentary in a crass R-rated comedy. But it's undermined by a blind eye toward homophobia. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 27, 2015
88% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) " An endearing unlikely heroine in an utterly charming escapade. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Mar 20, 2015
31% Insurgent (2015) " Woodley is a talented, charismatic actress who deserves a blockbuster franchise. Unfortunately, if Insurgent is any indication, the Divergent movies may not be it. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Mar 13, 2015
63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) " Like the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel itself, the novelty of the concept is a bit worse for wear, and this second go-round lacks the urgency of the first film. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Mar 6, 2015
90% The Hunting Ground (2015) " Diligently researched, The Hunting Ground is infuriating and dispiriting, but it does offer a muted ray of hope in Andrea Pino and Annie Clark. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 27, 2015
55% Focus (2015) " Though it may not go the way you expect it to, Focus makes up for that small disappointment ... with a denouement that's refreshingly uncynical. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 27, 2015
95% Wild Tales (2015) " A clever collection of short films that coalesce around a central theme, wielding humor and horror in equal measure. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Feb 20, 2015
74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) " All about fun, playfully riffing on the James Bond movies while establishing a stylish, over-the-top formula of its own and tackling the issue of class. " ‐ L.A. Biz
Posted Feb 13, 2015

99% Timbuktu (2015) " What daily life is like for locals living under the jihadist rule of insurgents: repressive, humiliating and too often tragic. " ‐ L.A. Biz

Posted Jan 23, 2015
89% Still Alice (2015) " Still Alice lives or dies on Moore's performance, whose portrayal is nuanced yet never maudlin. " ‐ L.A. Biz
