While We're Young (2015)

" While We're Young is perhaps [Noah Baumbach]'s most unpleasant picture to date, and that's a compliment. "

Get Hard (2015)

" In a parallel world, there is a version of this movie that is just as offensive, but also funny and smart. It's a pity we will never see it. "

Insurgent (2015)

" Insurgent does get a few things right along the way, [but] they're completely overshadowed by the general dullness of the rest of the movie. "

The Gunman (2015)

" Almost everything about The Gunman is by-the-numbers, which is fine, but it doesn't even tell a familiar story particularly well. "

Accidental Love (2015)

" Accidental Love did not have a smooth production process, and it shows in the stitched-together final product. "

Run All Night (2015)

" It's become so tiresome watching [Neeson] play the same character again and again that the film is even more forgettable than usual. "

It Follows (2015)

" It Follows may have a pretty terrifying premise - the kind of story that urban legends are born from - but it's much scarier in concept than execution. "

The Cobbler (2015)

" It's difficult to say what's more troubling: that the film doesn't do enough with its clever premise, or that it doesn't seem to care. "

Chappie (2015)

" It's just a shame that poor Chappie is stuck in a patchwork collection of clichés and, one can only presume, aspects from Blomkamp's favorite '80s sci-fi films. "

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)

" While it's not as good as its predecessor, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel still skates by on the delightful charm of its ensemble cast. "

Maps to the Stars (2015)

A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Out of the Furnace (2013)

" The grittiness of the tone... will bring to mind films ranging from The Fighter to The Deer Hunter, but it's that lack of cinematic gloss that makes the film come to life. "

The Lazarus Effect (2015)

VANish (2015)

" It doesn't rise above its influences, but with a 74-minute runtime, the thrills-per-minute ratio is surprisingly high. Watch it with a friend, and a ton of booze. "

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

" Jamie Dornan is going to get crushed for his performance here, but it's not all his fault. His character, as it's written, has the charm of a toaster. There's not much Dornan can do about that. "
