Z For Zachariah (2015)
"At times, it feels as if "Z for Zachariah" is holding back; one wishes the film wasn't quite so restrained and polite. The tricky ambiguity and tough suggestion of where the narrative leads, however, feels right. "
Big Game (2015)
American Ultra (2015)
"A genre-bending stoner comedy that proves most successful as a romantic action-thriller. In between the blistering gunfire and spoon-stabbings to the neck, "American Ultra" isn't without its oddball charms. "
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
The End Of The Tour (2015)
Fantastic Four (2015)
"There are specks of promise hidden amidst the muck of "Fantastic Four," but what disturbingly permeates the surface is director Josh Trank's creative anguish over seeing his movie get viciously stripped of its soul. "
Ricki And The Flash (2015)
""Ricki and The Flash" may not be the most complex or demanding film of 2015, and it may not be the deepest, but, in terms of the unadulterated buzzy joy and comfort it evokes from every frame, there will likely be few that match it. "
Barely Lethal (2015)
""Barely Lethal" may not ever reach the hallowed heights of the films Megan dreams of modeling her own adolescence after, but it is nonetheless a perfectly respectful entry in the teen-comedy subgenre. "
"If "Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation" doesn't quite have that same touch that assuredly sets it apart, what it does have is a similar confident skillfulness that keeps the film humming along from one noteworthy action set-piece to the next. "
Paper Towns (2015)
""Southpaw" is grown-up filmmaking with the elegant feel of a 1970s drama, focusing on the psychology and personal struggles of human beings rather than the tidily plotted events that happen to them. "
"Unapologetically ridiculous and most definitely slight, but neither of these traits takes away how fun it is. Younger viewers may not understand most of the references, but they will quickly be caught up in the pure adventure of it all, as well. "
"Taking itself seriously without being too serious, the film proves fun all the same, confirming that it is possible to side with a superhero who is the size of a fingertip without once feeling the need to laugh at him. "
"A frothy family comedy, no more and no less. It may not endure the way the best animated films do, but as an answer to where these cheerful yellow servants of villainy come from, it proves a good deal more winning than most will be expecting. "
Magic Mike XXL (2015)
Terminator Genisys (2015)
Ted 2 (2015)
"Ultimately just an over-the-top, patently silly lark, and on those terms, it is diverting and even a little sweet on occasion. The line between what is smart and funny and what is cheap and unamusing is one the filmmaker hasn't yet quite mastered. "
Inside Out (2015)
"Cleverly buoyant before hitting a number of genuinely poignant notes, "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is respectful and understanding of teenage behavior and the struggles life can throw no matter one's age. "
Jurassic World (2015)
""Spy" may be stuck with a stale title, but as a frequently uproarious comedy that also takes itself seriously as a globe-trotting espionage actioner, it never loses its wily freshness. Melissa McCarthy is as fierce as she is hilarious. "
"Plays like a vapid spoof of its old self, at once ceaselessly middling, painfully contrived, and so over-the-top that it feels less like a fleet-footed exposť of Hollywood culture and more like a lame extended episode of "The Twilight Zone." "
San Andreas (2015)
"Audiences who choose to seek out "San Andreas" will get exactly what they came for. Undeniably silly but riveting when it means it most, the film delivers the goods. Snooty cinephiles need not apply. "
"Anchored by the knockout pairing of Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, the filmand its characters, and the world they inhabitis difficult to say good-bye to because it's just so effortlessly endearing. "

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015)
"It takes approximately thirty seconds for Kevin James and Nick Bakay to undo any existing good will viewers might have for its predecessor. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" succeeds only at being aggravating. "
Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)
"One watches at a politely admiring, oddly removed distance. The film, exquisitely performed by Binoche, Stewart and Moretz, remains chilly in spite of its showbiz intimacy, which may be the point all along. "
The Longest Ride (2015)
While We're Young (2015)
Furious 7 (2015)
" It took seven movies, but "Furious Seven" can be counted as the franchise's first unequivocal success, a go-for-broke extravaganza of gripping tension, unbelievably wild stuntwork, and a beating heart that doesn't feel prefabricated. "
The Rewrite (2015)
Song One (2015)
"Compelling in spite of its commonplace premise and themes. Wanting to see where Tris goes from hereand how Shailene Woodley will continue to imbue her with lifeis more than enough incentive to keep watching. "
"Sweeping, intimate and whimsical, "Cinderella" does the Disney brand proud with a faithful yet expansive retelling that never misplaces its heart in exchange for shallow extravagance. This is one happily ever after worth believing. "
Unfinished Business (2015)
