1.5/4 53% A LEGO Brickumentary (2015) "Documentary? Please. This glorified infomercial from directors Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge is indoctrination. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 31, 2015
2/4 58% Southpaw (2015) "The melodrama is uncomfortably high; the checked-box plot is manipulative. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 24, 2015
1/4 17% American Heist (2015) "American Heist, I want my 94 minutes back. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 24, 2015
3/4 No Score Yet Two 4 One "The acting is uniformly unforced and the tone is gentle throughout the turns, making a viewing of the quietly successful Two 4 One a bargain at even twice the price. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 17, 2015
2.5/4 35% Strangerland (2015) "erie and unpredictable, Strangerland holds attention, even if traditional suspense tricks are avoided like they were dingos at the daycare. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 13, 2015
3/4 73% What We Did on Our Holiday (2015) "Do we want to spend 95 minutes of our summer holiday watching a film about a young, squabbling, dysfunctional British family on a sham trip? Yes, we do. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 13, 2015
3/4 79% Deli Man (2015) "Anjou is not chintzy with the upbeat schmaltz - again with the bouncy klezmer music! - but his chatty story on the decline of the urban eatery's ubiquity is not just about chopped liver, but the loss of Jewish culture. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 19, 2015
3.5/4 81% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) "A quirky, self-aware dramedy with a vibe that is at turns wiseacre and wise, with tear-jerking moments that are never maudlin and comic moments that are authentic. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 12, 2015
3/4 60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "The result is a warm-hearted frightening, about love and loss and, yes, next chapters. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 4, 2015
3/4 90% Love & Mercy (2015) "We see the pop maestro as misunderstood, confused and alienated - ahead of his time or just not up to it. Either way, the man was far-out, and so is this film. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 4, 2015
1.5/4 No Score Yet Berkshire County (2015) "One suspects the "actual events" involved first-time director Audrey Cummings at one point in her life watching better babysitter thrillers such as Halloween or When a Stranger Calls, because Berkshire County is nothing close to original. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 4, 2015
2.5/4 14% Aloft (2015) "The truth is elusive, and so is Aloft. Maybe viewers will figure it out cleaner than this reviewer did. And maybe the best answers aren't served on platters. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 4, 2015
0/4 No Score Yet Debug (2015) "Writer-director David Hewlett probably had visions of a pocket-sized 2001: A Space Odyssey, but instead produces something closer to Cheap Space Nine. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 29, 2015
89% When Marnie Was There (2015) "The artwork is simple and elegant; Anna's fragility and self-loathing is portrayed clearly. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 29, 2015
1/4 37% The Face Of An Angel (2015) "Winterbottom is not out to thrill, but to lecture on the truth, which, he believes, can only be found in fiction. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 22, 2015
3/4 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Eye-popping and message-laden ... " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/4 70% Welcome to Me (2015) "Welcome to Me is an unsettling comedy, and I mean that in the best possible way. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 22, 2015
76% Good Kill (2015) "Good Kill is half-measure, with a redemptive ending that plays as safe and bogus. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 15, 2015
2.5/4 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "What we have is an update that is tighter, slicker and fine-tuned in more ways than one - no doubt music to the ears of the fans of a flowering franchise. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 15, 2015
87% Lambert & Stamp (2015) "You might call this a business story. But I call it a love story, and I think director Cooper might, too. " ‐ Globe and Mail

73% Roar (1981) "Good lord, look what the filmmaker dragged in. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 8, 2015
1.5/4 8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "It's a chase film, it's a buddy film, it's a ridiculous, loud and often offensive romp. Witherspoon's character is cornball and annoyingly adrenalized - what was she thinking? " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 8, 2015

Posted May 1, 2015
1/4 36% Can't Stand Losing You (2015) "The film is a drag - lightened up unintentionally by Summers's laughable prose. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 1, 2015
3/4 69% The Salvation (2015) "In an untamed world where hypocrisy is loud and where no one can be trusted, salvation is one's own business and actions speak louder than words. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Apr 24, 2015
1.5/4 29% Lost River (2015) "Indulgent and movie-like, Lost River is Gosling's weird, let's-do-this-thing folly. If it is a statement, it is one made by borrowing the vivid styles of the actual filmmakers he seems to admire ... " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Apr 24, 2015
2/4 63% The Water Diviner (2015) "Water seeks its own level and Crowe, while in over his head, will find his audience. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Apr 24, 2015
1.5/4 36% Beyond The Reach (2015) "A deadly, desert-set game of cat and mouse that is tired and beyond plausibility. " ‐ Globe and Mail

3.5/4 100% Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me (2014) "Life is the collection of memories, and Campbell is losing them. But there is solace in the reality that you will not miss what you cannot recall. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Apr 3, 2015
2/4 52% Boychoir (2015) "I almost half-enjoyed the routine drama Boychoir. But then the closing credits rolled, and so did my eyes. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Mar 27, 2015
2/4 22% October Gale (2015) "Filmmaker Nadda's stock-in-trade is restraint, but October Gale builds up to nothing much. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Mar 27, 2015

Posted Mar 20, 2015
2/4 22% Tracers (2015) "With escape as its theme, this thin-plotted pleaser comes hard and goes fast, its rush premium but fleeting. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Mar 20, 2015

Posted Mar 20, 2015

Posted Mar 13, 2015
2/4 79% Stop The Pounding Heart (2014) "Minervini places these two non-actors in the same arena and no sparks whatsoever fly. It's a tedious, patience-testing experience that could reward only cinephiles and the curious. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2.5/4 11% Unfinished Business (2015) "Not without charm, Unfinished Business mixes the cute with the raunchy. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Mar 6, 2015
1.5/4 13% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "No resurrection for this dog please. " ‐ Globe and Mail

Posted Feb 27, 2015
3/4 93% The Wrecking Crew (2015) "The enchanting Kaye - "I was making more money than the President" - probably deserves her own film. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/4 71% The Voices (2015) "Think of this stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi as a meeting of Psycho, Dexter and Dr. Doolittle. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Feb 20, 2015
2/4 79% McFarland USA (2015) "It's all a bit much. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Feb 20, 2015
1.5/4 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is the proverbial turd in the Jacuzzi - you can't pin down who's responsible, but it's a floater that ruins the party. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Feb 20, 2015
