92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "Thrilling and knowing in all the right places, it's sure to satisfy fans that have breathlessly awaited its arrival for years. Unfamiliar with Jedi lore? You too will give in to the force of cinematic greatness. " ‐ Us Weekly
Posted Dec 16, 2015
60% Sisters (2015) "Sorry for the buzzkill. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have effortless chemistry, but their raucous comedy is . . . just OK. " ‐ Us Weekly
Posted Dec 15, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) "Don't worry if you're coming in to this film still fuzzy on the details of the 2008 financial collapse. That's actually preferable. " ‐ Us Weekly

Posted Jul 15, 2015

Posted Apr 2, 2015
2/4 29% Get Hard (2015) "by the final act, the entire fish-out-of-water concept is scrapped as Hart and Ferrell play bumbling cops and robbers and attempt to solve a crime. Haven't we been punished enough? " ‐ Us Weekly
Posted Mar 26, 2015

Posted Feb 11, 2015
10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "It's all hilariously ridiculous, but bless J.Lo for trying her mightiest to sell it. If someone's going to bring sultriness to suburbia, it might as well be Jenny from the Block. " ‐ Us Weekly
