1/4 24% Vacation (2015) ""Vacation" is, minute to minute, one of the most repellent, mean-spirited gross-out comedies it's ever been my squirmy displeasure to sit through. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 28, 2015
3/4 44% Dark Was The Night (2015) ""Dark Was The Night" is a horror movie, a creepy and atmospheric and sometimes blood-soaked horror movie, and it's got a good amount going for it. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 24, 2015
2/4 15% Big Significant Things (2015) "Honestly, I think I've had enough of American Male Existential Crisis in film, period. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 24, 2015
2.5/4 28% The Ardor (2015) "As good-looking as the movie and its stars are, "Ardor," whose title refers to a literal state of burning, never manages to catch fire. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 17, 2015
3.5/4 96% The Look of Silence (2015) "Strong and upsetting. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 17, 2015
3.5/4 80% Ant-Man (2015) "It's delightful and almost miraculous the way this movie manages to work as a comic heist picture on a huge scale, and with a comic science-fiction picture blended into it...while managing to cohere to the whole, you know, Marvel thing. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 15, 2015
3/4 73% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) "It's not what you'd call "major" cinema, but it's a breezy entertainment, particularly if you're a fan of one or more of the cast members. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 10, 2015
3/4 76% Jimmy's Hall (2015) "While it may not represent entirely accurate history, it depicts a set of values and actions the filmmaker clearly holds dear, and does so with commendable engagement. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 3, 2015
1.5/4 46% Ted 2 (2015) "While the first film offered, by my casual recollection, almost two dozen belly laughs, this one barely registers four. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 25, 2015
1.5/4 37% The Face Of An Angel (2015) "To get at the heart of what's wrong with "The Face of an Angel" all you need to do is consider the professional stones it takes to adapt the Amanda Knox case into yet another movie about the existential/amorous crises of a white male filmmaker. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 19, 2015
1.5/4 26% Burying the Ex (2015) "Even masters have their off days ... and Dante's new picture, "Burying The Ex," seems to have been made over the course of quite a few of them. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 19, 2015
3/4 75% The Wanted 18 (2015) "While Shomali resists easy cynicism while seeming to have almost every excuse to indulge it, he doesn't try to craft a hopeful parable out of his material either. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 19, 2015
2/4 0% The 11th Hour (2015) "I found this a less-than-fulfilling cinematic experience. But I have to give Morgenthaler credit for what we used to call "moxie"-whatever the hell he's doing, or thinks he's doing, he's fully committed to it ... " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 12, 2015
1/4 61% Hungry Hearts (2015) "A better name for this movie would maybe be "The Ghastly Ones." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/4 92% We Are Still Here (2015) "More than a mere homage, "We Are Still Here" is the kind of movie you wish you could take back in time with you and project in your favorite 42nd Street grindhouse. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/4 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "A story that's hair-raisingly watchable and frequently moving, regardless of what you believe you might already know of Wilson's life. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
1/4 0% Unfreedom (2015) "As accomplished and committed as most of the cast is, one doesn't so much find affinity with the characters they play as feel bad that they were compelled to enact such ugly movements. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 29, 2015
3/4 50% San Andreas (2015) "The action is bracing, Johnson's performance is solid and, within its extremely narrow parameters, entirely convincing, and Gugino and Daddario are both gritty and attractive. The result is a pretty exemplary popcorn movie. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 28, 2015
2.5/4 90% Sunshine Superman (2015) "The subject matter increasingly suggests a kind of cross between "Man On Wire" and "Grizzly Man," but unlike "Grizzly Man" director Werner Herzog, director Strauch has little interrogative spirit. There's no interest in exploring Boenish's contradictions. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/4 94% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) ""I'll See You In My Dreams" is notable for its tempered sweetness and never on-the-nose wisdom. It makes genuine cinematic hay of scenarios that 99 out of one hundred other filmmakers would play for cheap look-at-the-old-people laughs. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 15, 2015
2.5/4 67% The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015) "This movie, as it happens, is a comedy, but it's a frequently grisly one, and one that makes rollicking fun of a lot of dark Swedish preoccupations. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 8, 2015
1.5/4 43% The D Train (2015) "The movie goes for grin-and-cringe-inducing, and instead achieves "excruciating." " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 8, 2015
2/4 8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "As a movie, "Hot Pursuit" can barely be said to exist. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 7, 2015
2.5/4 79% Far from Men (2015) "Something of a Distinguished Slog. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted May 1, 2015
2.5/4 44% Adult Beginners (2015) "If you're a big booster of any of the lead actors (I'm something of a Cannavale partisan myself), this will be worth your time. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 24, 2015
3/4 79% 24 Days (2015) "[It] has a more upsetting dimension than most suspense dramas as it's based on a true story, a story that touches on issues still roiling France today. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 24, 2015
C 38% Silent Tongue (1994) "The lone lure of this supernatural Western is a truly possessed performance by River Phoenix in his last completed role. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 21, 2015
2.5/4 75% Alex of Venice (2015) "The movie's quirky setting pays off dividends where you least expect them. At such moments, the movie's humanism finally seems unforced, and everything is the better for that. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 17, 2015
1.5/4 44% True Story (2015) ""True Story" spends much of its 90 minutes trying to figure out just what it is. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3.5/4 89% Clouds of Sils Maria (2015) ""Clouds of Sils Maria" is oodles more poetic and enigmatic than the term "backstage drama" generally encompasses. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 10, 2015
1/4 9% Kill Me Three Times (2015) "All participants could have gotten up to something far more enjoyable. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 10, 2015
2/4 31% Desert Dancer (2015) "Its depiction of the internal tensions in Iranian politics and culture is not what you'd call super-nuanced, but it is sympathetic to Iran as an entity. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 10, 2015
1/4 67% 5 to 7 (2015) "Somewhere before the halfway point the movie crosses a line, and its fantasy version of New York, not to mention of French women, gets to looking kind of hoary and inadvertently adolescent. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 3, 2015
3/4 94% Man from Reno (2015) "An intricately, even densely, plotted mystery/thriller that casts an unusual spell from its opening scene. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 27, 2015
2.5/4 89% The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq (2015) "This is pretty much the opposite of a contemporary American comedy: rather than broad, "The Kidnapping of Michel Houllebecq" is an exemplary example of narrow. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 25, 2015
2.5/4 86% Backcountry (2015) "Apparently inspired by a true story that the movie made me very much not want to look up, which I suppose may be taken by some to be a token of its effectiveness. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2.5/4 87% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) "The title of the movie seems to promise adventure, and the movie does deliver that, though not in the conventional manner. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 18, 2015
3/4 100% Seymour: An Introduction (2015) "The movie kind of flits along-if one wanted to be cruel one would use a word like "dilettante"-pleasantly and informatively enough without ever lifting off. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 13, 2015
2.5/4 44% Two Men in Town (2015) "As exceptional as the acting in the picture is, and it is wonderful ... it can't entirely lift the movie from the rut it has all but plowed into by the end credits. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 6, 2015
3/4 69% The Salvation (2015) "It is not a particularly light-hearted Western but it's also neither portentous nor pretentious, and it doesn't wear out its welcome. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 27, 2015
3/4 79% Bluebird (2014) "Edmands' scenario provides plenty of opportunity for narrative twists and social commentary, but these aren't the areas of interest for the filmmaker. Rather, he's interested in the people ... " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 27, 2015
3.5/4 79% McFarland USA (2015) "Kevin Costner reaches a welcome career high in this new movie, a live-action based-on-a-true-story inspirational tale of school sports, produced by Disney. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 19, 2015
2.5/4 64% The Rewrite (2015) "By no means watch this if you're looking for a nourishing cinematic experience. But if your idea of a cozy rom-com is an old Hugh Grant one, this has some cine-comfort-food-carbs for you. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 13, 2015
2.5/4 21% Old Fashioned (2015) "It's incredibly rare to see an American movie with a Christian perspective that's more invested in philosophizing and empathizing than in eschatological pandering, and for that alone "Old Fashioned" deserves commendation. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/4 84% Ballet 422 (2015) "The members of the team creating Peck's ballet are master illusionists. But they're also people with jobs, and the movie does an excellent job of showing the commonplace workaday atmosphere that is, in fact, a big part of that business we call show. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 6, 2015
1/4 6% Outcast (2015) "The status of actor Nicolas Cage's career has now definitively shifted from its entertainingly eccentric phase into its genuinely befuddling and perhaps sad phase. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 6, 2015
2.5/4 12% Seventh Son (2015) "One doesn't want to damn the movie with faint praise by saying "it's not that bad," but that's kind of the most objectively accurate description of it, in all honesty. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 6, 2015
4/4 94% Hard to be a God (2015) "Not only an unforgettable individual masterpiece but probably one of the capital-G Great Films. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 30, 2015
4/4 99% Timbuktu (2015) "It manages to ravish the heart while dazzling the eye simultaneously, neither at the expense of the other. It's a work of art that seems realized in an entirely organic way. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

1/4 90% Mommy (2015) "Dolan is not going to let you forget who's boss. As for myself, I quit. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
