3/5 No Score Yet A Date With Miss Fortune (2016) "The comedy is essentially sweet-natured; the conflict that will keep our lovebirds apart, so crucial to the genre, does not go down quite so well. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 4, 2016
9% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "This is a movie that desperately wants to be a raunchy, politically incorrect, gross-out comedy. It gets as far as desperate. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Feb 4, 2016
2.5/5 80% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Waaaaay too talky and overcomplicated. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jan 28, 2016
4/5 96% 45 Years (2015) "A movie that will shatter you. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jan 21, 2016
3/5 97% It Follows (2015) "No question that the storytelling here is impressive; the story itself, however, is a bit thin. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 30, 2015
1/5 0% Extraction (2015) "It's a rare movie that can't be saved by Bruce Willis single-handedly killing all the bad guys. And yet, here it is: Extraction. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 17, 2015
4/5 73% Youth (2015) "Youth is imperfect and it meanders, but Caine and Keitel bring this thing to life with gusto. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 10, 2015
4/5 93% Carol (2015) "Carol is a complex human story about unspoken desire, social expectations and an authentic life. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 10, 2015
3/5 60% Life (2015) "Both Pattinson and DeHaan could have used more to do, but both actors put in performances that elevate the proceedings. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 62% Legend (2015) "It's not short of thrills, the biggest of which is Hardy's double performance. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Dec 3, 2015
3.5/5 42% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) "It's Julia Roberts who owns the movie. As the grieving Jess, a woman reduced to a shadow by the death of her daughter, Roberts is a revelation here. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 20, 2015
3/5 80% Man Up (2015) "Man Up has a couple of bits that don't quite work and the ending is just silly, but for the most part, Pegg and Bell carry this thing through sheer force of personality. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 19, 2015
4/5 98% Brooklyn (2015) "It's such a beautiful film. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 19, 2015
3.5/5 31% By The Sea (2015) "By the Sea [is] a strange, dream-like undertaking and ravishing to look at. What it all means is tougher to work out. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3/5 43% The 33 (2015) "The 33 is not a failure. It's a crowd-pleasing, sentimental, middle-of-the-road venture suitable for any audience. And that's a pity, because the subject matter cries out for a much more muscular treatment. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
5/5 96% Spotlight (2015) "Spotlight is a mystery, a thriller and a human interest drama, but mostly it's a love letter to investigative journalism. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
4/5 100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "Kilo Two Bravo is one of the most intense anti-war films extant. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Nov 13, 2015
3.5/5 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse manages to be a very good comedy, a scary adventure, a tale of friendship and a coming of age story, all rolled into one. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/5 73% Suffragette (2015) "Suffragette is easy to look at, populated by strong actors who move through a world furnished with lovely period detail, but it feels hollow at the centre. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 29, 2015
4/5 96% Room (2015) "Room works as a film because of the completely engaging performances from Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 22, 2015
2.5/5 47% Freeheld (2015) "[Freeheld] is sincere, to be sure, but unlikely to win any prizes. For starters, the most memorable character in this important story of a courageous woman is a man; that's a problem. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 15, 2015
4/5 91% 99 Homes (2015) "99 Homes is a movie about how we live now, a thriller for grown-ups about everyday life and the social pecking order. Not for the faint of heart, mind you. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3/5 72% The Final Girls (2015) "The Final Girls offers a lovely twist on the horror genre and some good laughs for movie fans of every stripe. Nice to see the more ludicrous elements of retro slasher fare get the mockery they deserve. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Oct 7, 2015
4/5 91% Grandma (2015) "The movie is both hysterically funny and heartbreaking, but Weitz somehow makes you laugh without making light of serious issues. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Sep 24, 2015
5/5 93% Sicario (2015) "Director Denis Villeneuve, aided and abetted by cinematographer Roger Deakins, fills Sicario with dread and a violence that happens to be stunning to look at. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Sep 24, 2015
2.5/5 60% The Intern (2015) "Only the impressive chemistry between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway will keep you watching; we haven't even mentioned the painfully ageist sex jokes or the silly plot developments that unfold like sitcom padding. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Sep 24, 2015
3/5 17% The Transporter Refueled (2015) "The Transporter Refueled is big, brainless fun and just the sort of amusement the back-to-school crowd might crave. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Sep 3, 2015
3.5/5 91% The End Of The Tour (2015) "What we have here is a road trip about two guys talking. And it's riveting. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3.5/5 78% Z For Zachariah (2015) "Experiencing Z for Zachariah is a bit like rummaging around in someone else's mind for 90 minutes, and we mean that in the best way. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/5 41% We Are Your Friends (2015) "If Cole's journey in We Are Your Friends is somewhat predictable, at least there are interesting things to look at along the way. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 27, 2015

Posted Aug 20, 2015
2/5 4% Some Kind of Beautiful (2015) "Sometimes, [the film] wants to be light farce, all repartee and two-dimensional characters; other times it wants to be a contender, with deathbed scenes and motivating lectures on romantic poetry. At all times it's a tremendous waste of talent. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 52% Boulevard (2015) "Boulevard itself moves toward an obvious conclusion with no surprises along the way; it runs out of steam after about an hour. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 13, 2015
3/5 39% She's Funny That Way (2015) "This is a light and lovely confection that doesn't linger in the mind, but it will certainly leave you smiling. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 13, 2015
4/5 99% Shaun the Sheep (2015) "Shaun The Sheep is suitable entertainment for anyone who likes to laugh out loud. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 7, 2015
3/5 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "There's a lot to like about Ricki and the Flash, but seeing Meryl Streep perform the song Wooly Bully with a bar band is a particular highlight. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Aug 6, 2015
3/5 42% Irrational Man (2015) "Provided you don't look too closely, Irrational Man is a film Woody Allen fans will love. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3.5/5 65% Unexpected (2015) "Thanks to an intelligent script and the performances of Cobie Smulders, Gail Bean and Elizabeth McGovern, the minutiae of everyday life in this small, lovely film will capture your interest. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 60% Southpaw (2015) "Despite brilliant fight scenes and impressive performances, Southpaw is brought down by ham-handed storytelling. " ‐ Jam! Movies
Posted Jul 23, 2015

3.5/5 76% Suite Fran├žaise "What could be all-too-familiar here is mostly fresh and engaging, thanks to understated storytelling and a great cast. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 2, 2015
4/5 79% Infinitely Polar Bear (2015) "By capturing a watershed period in her family life, Forbes also manages to offer a remarkably concise snapshot of the era and its social views on race, class, education, working women and mental illness. And the resilience of children. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jul 2, 2015
3/5 81% The Overnight (2015) "What makes The Overnight work as well as it does is the cast. The performances here are truly fearless and engaging, with Schwartzman and Scott in particular in high gear. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 25, 2015
4/5 89% Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman (2015) "Hagiography? Maybe a little, but for fans of the actor, it's a must-see. " ‐ Toronto Sun

Posted Jun 11, 2015
4/5 93% Spy (2015) "On her own, Melissa McCarthy is hilarious. So is Rose Byrne. Together, they're spectacularly funny. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 92% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) "Danner is probably the main reason to see the movie, and her screen presence is impressive; she's an actor who manages to bring gravitas to any role, and that includes her work in goofy things like Ben Stiller's Meet the Parents series. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 28, 2015
3.5/5 20% Aloha (2015) "Sometimes confusing and often self-indulgent, Aloha is also kind of fabulous to watch. That's mostly thanks to a great cast. " ‐ Toronto Sun
Posted May 28, 2015
3/5 52% Saint Laurent (2015) "Bonello makes good use of mirrors and reflective surfaces throughout the film, all very fitting for a story about a boy as beautiful and as self-absorbed as Narcissus himself. " ‐ Toronto Sun
