99 Homes (2015)
"While Bahrani and his co-writers approach the subject matter with all the noisy subtlety of a bar brawl, the film rises above mere polemics thanks to charged performances from Andrew Garfield and especially Michael Shannon. "
The Martian (2015)
"This marks a solid return to form for Scott, whose last few films ( Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Counselor and Prometheus) have veered from the leaden to the unwatchable. Scott may have found himself by getting lost in space. "
Meet The Patels (2015)
"Meet the Patels ends up being much more than a movie about a guy going out on dates. It's about shifting identities, parental expectations and trying to hold on to a life raft of tradition in a swirling sea of change. And it's pretty funny, too. "

"The film is right in line with Kempner's other works...but as long as she keeps excavating these illuminating treasures of the Jewish-American past, that she's not doing anything radically new fades in importance. "
Black Mass (2015)
"If there's a problem with Black Mass, it's that the general arc of the story is well known...its details reflect the plot points of many other gangster films. But it's the getting there that's the thrill. "
The Beauty Inside (2015)
The Visit (2015)
The Transporter Refueled (2015)

Z For Zachariah (2015)
"Director Craig Zobel has something more contemplative in mind than the usual end-times blood lust...[It] is not concerned with the panicky desperation of the newly primitive but what happens after comfort and routine has set in with this new world order. "
We Are Your Friends (2015)
"As good as much of the music is, the film still feels like a studio concoction...But, to paraphrase words of wisdom from a previous generation of young dancers from Dick Clark's American Bandstand, it's got a good beat and it's easy to dance to. "
American Ultra (2015)
"Eisenberg usually plays geeky and studious, not gallant and studly. He's Mark Zuckerberg, not Jason Statham. But he gets to stride both sides of the street in the disposable yet mildly enjoyable riff on the spy-movie formula. "
Straight Outta Compton (2015)
"But as a depiction of a time and place, Straight Outta Compton - from its low-rider Chevys on hydraulics blaring hip-hop to police battering ram vehicles crashing into suspected crack houses - nails it. "
Fantastic Four (2015)
The Tribe (2015)
Ricki And The Flash (2015)
Shaun the Sheep (2015)
"The franchise has a lot in common with Old Faithful: it's a popular attraction; predictable as clockwork; and features acts of nature - a geyser of boiling water in one case, Tom Cruise's abs in the other - that remain impressive after all these years. "
"Southpaw doesn't try to reinvent the boxing-movie game - in fact, it pretty much indulges every cliche - but it's the intense central performance from a beefed up, ripped-to-the-core Jake Gyllenhaal that gives it distinction and heart. "
The Suicide Theory (2015)
In Stereo (2015)
"The ugly unraveling of Winehouse's life infuriates and saddens anew, as Kapadia's poignant documentary reminds viewers of what was and what might have been, but was ultimately, tragically never to be. "
The Wolfpack (2015)
"The boys are bright and funny, and when they do go out together - shades on, long hair flowing down rail-thin bodies - they look like a somewhat awkward but cool rock band you'd like to get to know. Moselle's documentary is the next best thing. "
Terminator Genisys (2015)
"Someone needs to go back in time and stop movie executives from greenlighting more "Terminator" movies. It's not that Terminator: Genisys is a laughably bad movie. Worse, it's an interminably boring one. "
