85% Kingdom Of Shadows (2015) "Providing a chilling non-fiction parallel to the recent Sicario, Kingdom of Shadows is both heartbreaking and disturbing. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 19, 2015
No Score Yet Backtrack "[While Brody] delivers a typically intense turn in this Australian thriller, the film doesn't manage to shed its overwhelming air of familiarity and obvious debt to such genre predecessors as The Sixth Sense, among countless others. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 17, 2015
100% TransFatty Lives "Deeply moving and rambunctiously funny. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 16, 2015
No Score Yet Miles To Go "The story pretty much goes nowhere, with one key climactic element involving a dramatic episode that's inexplicably not depicted onscreen. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 9, 2015
No Score Yet Come Simi "It's an enjoyable enough road movie that, with a running time of a mere 74 minutes, is careful not to wear out its welcome. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 5, 2015
96% The Armor Of Light (2015) "The Armor of Light puts a human face on the perpetually divisive topic. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 27, 2015
20% Jem and the Holograms (2015) "Not being part of the generation that watched the show, I can't vouch for its merits. But it's safe to say that it must be miles ahead of this wan, bloated screen version which forgoes the original's sci-fi and thriller aspects. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 23, 2015
No Score Yet Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank (2015) "the film is most successful when it concentrates on its subject's personal life. His candor in discussing his sexuality and other subjects is endlessly refreshing in this era when politicians are mostly defined by their timidity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 22, 2015
83% Woodlawn (2015) "Sports and religion are a potent combination, one that siblings Jon and Andrew Erwin (October Baby, Mom's Night Out) exploit to canny effect in their new film based on the real-life Woodlawn High School football team. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 19, 2015
No Score Yet Homemakers (2015) "As messy and unstructured as the inner life of its central character, Homemakers boasts an uncommonly ragged indie sensibility in its portrait of a disaffected young woman struggling with issues of self-identity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 16, 2015
33% This Is Happening (2015) "Combining the most clichéd tropes of dysfunctional family comedies and wacky road movies, Ryan Jaffe's debut feature manages to squander the talents of several notable actors. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 7, 2015
57% The True Cost (2015) "The latest advocacy documentary that will either induce you into changing your ways or simply have you curling into a fetal position from despair. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 6, 2015
40% The Prime Ministers: Soldiers and Peacemakers (2015) "It also suffers from its one-sided perspective which often fails to provide sufficient informational context. But it nonetheless provides a vividly personal account of the country's travails during some of its most tumultuous times. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 6, 2015
100% Palio (2015) "Cosima Spender's documentary... plays like a classic sports drama thanks to its memorable central characters. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 29, 2015
No Score Yet Forever (2015) "While it doesn't quite manage to sustain that same level of tension throughout, Forever is an intriguing psychological thriller that bears attention. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 28, 2015
78% Unbranded "What viewers will come away with most is a renewed appreciation for the natural beauty of both the western region of the country and the wild animals that inhabit it. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 24, 2015
No Score Yet Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer (2015) "It doesn't delve too deeply into its subject's psyche or provide much context for his work, but fashionistas are likely to be entertained. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 21, 2015
17% The Perfect Guy (2015) "You've seen it a thousand times before. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 15, 2015
100% The Lady In The Van (2015) "It's Smith's eccentric oldster who is the film's driving force, and the 80-year-old actress doesn't disappoint. Not surprisingly, she fully exploits the humor in her character's bizarreness. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 14, 2015
18% Listening (2015) "Director/screenwriter Khalil Sullins makes an auspicious feature debut with his audacious sci-fi thriller that's as engrossing as it is thought-provoking. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 8, 2015
86% All American High Revisited (2014) "As amusing and sometimes painfully awkward as attending your own high school reunion, All American High Revisited is a vivid reminder of both how much things change and how they remain the same. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 8, 2015
17% The Transporter Refueled (2015) "The Transporter Refueled is running on cheap gas. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 3, 2015
36% Contracted: Phase II (2015) "It's all as ridiculous as it sounds, with only the occasional attempts at dark humor providing saving graces. Genre fans, at least, should be satiated by the copious amount of gore and viscera on display. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 2, 2015
No Score Yet A Reason (2015) "An overwrought family melodrama involving that hoariest of clichés, the reading of a will. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 1, 2015
35% War Room (2015) "It's not so much the plot or themes of the film that's the problem as the ham-fisted execution. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 28, 2015
78% Blood Punch (2015) "This supernaturally tinged comedic thriller is far more wickedly clever than most comparable Hollywood offerings. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 28, 2015
67% Pod (2015) "While there's something to be admired in the film's economy and tightly controlled atmospheric tension, its effectiveness is limited by the derivative storyline, mostly unmodulated performances and the obviously miniscule budget. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 24, 2015
95% We Are Still Here (2015) "Showcasing juicy performances by its actors who tear into their stock roles with admirable conviction, the film looks terrific. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 21, 2015
No Score Yet The Lost Key (2015) "[Manis says] the number one goal for couples should be to achieve "oneness" and "intimacy." The latter word is invoked time and time again, and... most viewers should assume that their relationship is sorely lacking it. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 17, 2015
31% Echoes of War (2015) "[A] sluggish post-Civil War drama directed and co-written by Kane Senes that wears its shopworn ideas too heavily on its sleeve. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 14, 2015
100% Diamond Tongues "That she nonetheless emerges as all too relatable is a credit to Moondi's astute screenplay and the nerve-rattling performance by its lead performer, here making an auspicious acting debut. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 12, 2015
61% The Boy (2015) "While it's admirable that director Macneill and his co-scripter Clay McLeod Chapman opted to emphasize mood and psychology over the story's more exploitable elements, it nonetheless results in a listless tedium. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 10, 2015
50% Sneakerheadz (2015) "With subject matter so esoteric that an onscreen glossary is provided, Sneakerheadz will leave you shaking your head even as the showcased colorful footwear inevitably induces sneaker envy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 5, 2015
100% Two Step (2015) "Alex R. Johnson's Texas-set neo-noir... begins slowly and surely before ratcheting up the tension to terrific effect. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 31, 2015
100% Famous Nathan (2015) "Throughout Famous Nathan there are enough scenes of customers gleefully wolfing down juicy frankfurters to convert even the most staunchly vegetarian viewer. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 28, 2015
84% I Am Cait: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Clearly striving to impart serious messages about tolerance of the transgender community while throwing in a few Kardashians for comic relief, I Am Cait emerges as a surprisingly thoughtful if undeniably self-serving effort. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 22, 2015
41% Dark Was The Night (2015) "As generic as its title, Jack Heller's monster-in-the-woods horror film aspires to be the stuff of nightmares but instead merely lulls the viewer into an untroubled sleep. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 22, 2015
74% The Outrageous Sophie Tucker (2015) "The "Last of the Red Hot Mamas" has lapsed into showbiz obscurity, something that William Gazecki's loving documentary clearly hopes to correct. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 20, 2015
6% Safelight (2015) "Safelight squanders the efforts of a talented cast who are unable to lift the material beyond its clichés. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 16, 2015
76% The Suicide Theory (2015) "Hit man thrillers are a dime a dozen, but director Dru Brown's Aussie variation on the familiar genre takes some seriously clever, nasty turns. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 8, 2015
71% Gone Doggy Gone (2015) "The clever premise eventually loses steam as the convoluted plot unfolds... But there are still plenty of laughs along the way. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 1, 2015
92% Mala Mala (2015) "Mala Mala depicts its subjects with an uncommon degree of empathy and understanding, not to mention glamor. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 29, 2015
No Score Yet The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez (2012) "The late Ernest Borgnine receives a moving send-off in his final film, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 25, 2015
46% Ted 2 (2015) "Ted's Boston-accented zingers are expertly delivered by the director/star, whose voice talent is undeniable, and Wahlberg again demonstrates that he's skilled at comedy ... Seyfried proves adept as well ... " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 24, 2015
85% Glass Chin (2015) "Despite its impressive formalistic rigor, the film fails to connect on an emotional level, with even the tragic ending failing to move us as it should. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 23, 2015
71% Rubble Kings (2015) "An entertaining doc vividly chronicles a troubled era. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 17, 2015
No Score Yet How To Save Us (2015) "It will be interesting to see what the filmmaker achieves in the future if provided with greater financial resources. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 17, 2015
0% United Passions (2015) "Even without the cloud of the recent disturbing developments, United Passions is a cringeworthy, self-aggrandizing affair that mainly benefits from its unintentional camp value. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 11, 2015
100% Every Last Child (2015) "Provocative and hard-hitting, Every Last Child is a chilling reminder that even diseases once thought eradicated are still capable of rearing their ugly heads as a result of ignorance and prejudice. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 8, 2015
44% Freetown (2015) "Although suffused with welcome touches of sly humor, the proceedings never gather the necessary dramatic momentum. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
