"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)
The DUFF (2015)
"Capable, spry, and mostly wise when it isn't spelling out its moralistic intent. The main attraction is Mae Whitman, acting her heart out while making her every last moment look as natural and vulnerable as that of a real life being lived. "
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015)
"Any way one spins it, this is a bad movie. It's cheap-looking. It's asinine. It's dull. It's thoroughly unsatisfying. And, at 93 minutes, the proceedings earn a whopping two laughs tucked inside a tidal wave of misery. "
