Posted Dec 23, 2015

46% Bleeding Heart (2015) "Despite its non-exploitative approach to its subject, the film... is too schematic and obvious to have the desired impact. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 9, 2015

Posted Dec 7, 2015
50% Uncle Nick (2015) "Failing to live up to it anarchic convictions by adding sympathetic aspects to its central character shortly before the conclusion, Uncle Nick, much like the sorts of holiday celebrations it depicts, is ultimately too strained to be enjoyable. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 7, 2015

Posted Dec 3, 2015

Posted Nov 19, 2015

Posted Nov 9, 2015

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.

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 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

Posted Sep 15, 2015
93% 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 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
