28% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) It's a brilliant casting coup, as Cox... proves herself to be a legitimate triple threat, effectively singing, dancing and sneering her way through the film's many over-the-top musical numbers. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

5/5 100% O.J.: Made in America (2016) One of the best documentary projects ever shown on mainstream network television. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

70% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) A Very Murray Christmas is a show that only a Bill Murray fan could love. But here's the thing: is there anybody who's not, on some level, in some secretly tickle-susceptible corner of their being a Bill Murray fan? - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

2.5/5 56% Ferrell Takes The Field (2015) For staunch fans of Ferrell's comedy, that'll make Ferrell Takes the Field a home run. For everyone else, however, this well-intended effort will probably feel more like a ground-rule double, at best. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

71% I Am Chris Farley (2015) It's a heartwarming but ultimately heartbreaking film that celebrates the life of a unique comic genius without ever sidestepping the personal problems that pushed him ever deeper into the lifestyle excesses that led to his death in 1997, at age 33. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) Sharknado 3 merely creates tedium as it repeats the same gags within a framework that somehow manages to make - yes, it is possible - even less sense than its amusingly mindless predecessors. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet The Novack Murders (2015) [It's] a bad movie that revels in its tackiness, amps up its tawdriness and emphasizes its campy qualities. And as a result, what might have been a channel-flip-inducing failure instead turns out to be a couple of hours of guilty-pleasure TV fun. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

47% Whitney (2015) This story is limited in range, refuses to test any boundaries and is content to remain in a safe middle range without ever soaring to heights that might thrill. And because of that, not even the most devoted Whitney Houston fan will always love this. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

71% Hello Ladies: The Movie (2014) Hardcore fans who stuck with the series specifically because of its wince-worthiness will likely feel they've been victims of an elaborate bait-and-switch con. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

59% Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014) Simply put, it's one of those TV movies that's so unapologetically bad that it is, in its own unique way, also pretty great. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT

92% The Challenger Disaster (2013) Most of the credit for The Challenger's success belongs to Hurt, who has made a career of bringing slightly damaged, awkwardly distant but morally grounded characters to life. His portrayal of Feynman hits all the right notes. - Winnipeg Free Press EDIT
