3/4 75% Black Mass (2015) "Black Mass, a down and dirty crime drama based on the exploits of Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger, is thrilling for a number of reasons. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Sep 17, 2015
2.5/4 63% The Visit (2015) "Isn't the whole handheld "real-video" thing kind of old by now? Isn't the Shyamalanian-twist thing kind of old by now, too? " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Sep 10, 2015
3.5/4 66% Learning To Drive (2015) "Learning to Drive is a story of companionship, loneliness, resilience. It's a small, artfully crafted thing, but it resonates in big ways. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

1.5/4 0% Chloe & Theo (2015) "Chloe & Theo is a mess of a message movie, simplistic, sappy, silly. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Sep 3, 2015
4/4 82% Mistress America (2015) "Mistress America is not a new comic-book movie, although Greta Gerwig, who stars, has a kind of stand-tall, hands-on-hips superhero vibe about her. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 64% Digging For Fire (2015) "Conversations drift and weave, as do the people having them. Narcissistic melancholy dukes it out with beer-and-pot-stoked merriment. There is longing. There is foolhardiness. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Aug 27, 2015
3/4 46% No Escape (2015) "A taut thriller about an American family touching down in an unnamed country just as a violent coup erupts, No Escape goes about its gut-churning business by playing (and preying) on our worst xenophobic tendencies. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted Aug 13, 2015
3/4 94% Best Of Enemies (2015) "Best of Enemies offers a bracing view of a pivotal time in our recent history, as Vietnam and race riots scarred a nation's soul, and as the Establishment and the Counter Culture exchanged epithets and blows. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Aug 13, 2015
2.5/4 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "A lot of energy and effort has gone into this endeavor, and I can't say some of it's not fun. But more of it, alas, is just tedious. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Aug 13, 2015
98% Phoenix (2015) "There is intrigue. There is suspense. Guilt -- a man's guilt, a nation's -- hangs heavy in the air. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Aug 12, 2015

Posted Jul 30, 2015
2.5/4 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "There's a difference between velocity and momentum, and while the chases, shootouts and close-quarters combat rarely flag, our interest does. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 29, 2015
3.5/4 96% Tangerine (2015) "Baker gets great, sly, unforced performances from his two leads, but it's not all a rollicking good time: There are moments of quietude, inquietude, moments when a sense of wariness and loneliness settles over the women. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 24, 2015
2/4 56% Paper Towns (2015) "The movie name-drops the cool stuff, the rebels of word and song, but the essence of the story and the cardboard characters who inhabit it are as mundane as can be. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 23, 2015

Posted Jul 23, 2015

Posted Jul 16, 2015
3/4 81% X-Men (2000) "This is a film that should satisfy fans of the hugely popular comic book and audiences who can't tell one uncanny X-Man from another. Mutants rule. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 15, 2015
4/4 96% Amy (2015) "The film is remarkable not just for the immense talent there to see in Winehouse's performances, but the fact that there is so much to see. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 9, 2015

3/4 55% Minions (2015) "Minions may just be an excuse to cash in on the phenomenal success of the Despicable Me franchise (Part 3 already has a release date: June 30, 2017), but as crass commercial enterprises go, this prequel gives its all. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jul 9, 2015

Posted Jun 19, 2015
3/4 70% The Land Before Time (1988) "It looks and sounds as if it came out of the Disney Studios of the '40s or '50s. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing -- that's as much a compliment (in terms of the quality of animation) as it is a criticism. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jun 8, 2015
3/4 92% I'll See You in My Dreams (2015) "I'll See You in My Dreams is delicate and nuanced, with writing that rejects, or at least reshapes, the cliches of movies about people facing the glare of their sunset years. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jun 4, 2015
3.5/4 93% Spy (2015) "If a Spy sequel isn't already in the works, they better get cracking. Nefarious terrorists and numskull guys await. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted Jun 4, 2015
3.5/4 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "Its daring dive into the mind of Brian Wilson feels right. God only knows (to borrow a Pet Sound song title or two), but you still believe in . . . Brian. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer

Posted May 29, 2015
3/4 50% San Andreas (2015) "Quite literally the blockbuster of the year. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted May 29, 2015
3/4 67% The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015) "This peripatetic farce practically propels itself. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted May 29, 2015
20% Aloha (2015) "For all the screwball patter, smart-aleck similes, and zingy one-liners that Crowe has handed his mismatched cast, a kerplunking emptiness runs through Aloha. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
Posted May 29, 2015
2.5/4 49% Tomorrowland (2015) "Unlikely to be remembered in decades to come - or even in months to come, once the next teenage dystopian fantasy inserts itself into movie houses. " ‐ Philadelphia Inquirer
