92% The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2014) If you think a documentary about Studio Ghibli might appeal to you, stop wasting your time with me and start streaming The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness.‐ The Mary Sue

95% She's Beautiful When She's Angry (2014) Directed, produced, and shot exclusively by women, She's Beautiful When She's Angry tells the story of the American feminist movement.‐ The Mary Sue

20% Kidnapping Mr. Heineken (2015) It's obviously possible to make compelling movies about true crime committed by unsympathetic people, but this sure isn't one of them.‐ The Mary Sue

80% A Brony Tale (2014) A Brony Tale educated me, but I can't help but feel the history I learned was a little selective.‐ The Mary Sue

33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) A Million Ways to Die's endless parade of toots undermines its actors. The writing also manages to find less-scatological ways to disrespect women and minorities.‐ The Mary Sue

80% Furious 7 (2015) Furious 7, more so even than its Furious Forefathers, is about people who love each other un-self-consciously (and the way they express said love with their cars).‐ The Mary Sue

33% Blackhat (2015) I'm not saying that this is a good film, just that it has value beyond its inglorious January release.‐ The Mary Sue

78% The Theory of Everything (2014) The Theory of Everything charts the universes inside of us: inscrutable, expanding, human.‐ The Mary Sue

72% What If (2014) I don't think self-respecting audiences are supposed to believe in soul mates anymore. What If made me want to.‐ The Mary Sue

86% Trainwreck (2015) Trainwreck's faults as a movie are overlookable, and its faults as a piece of feminist media are more the result of the burden of representation than anything else.‐ The Mary Sue

3/5 19% Jem and the Holograms (2015) Jem and the Holograms is a satisfyingly goofy, girl-power band movie that's totally unembarrassed by its own ridiculousness.‐ The Mary Sue

65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) [Pitch Perfect 2] is bigger than Pitch Perfect in every way: more extravagant, more important, and definitely more flawed.‐ The Mary Sue

2.5/5 42% In the Heart of the Sea (2015) I was pretty satisfied by the movie. Unfortunately, most theater-goers will probably be left wanting more.‐ The Mary Sue

24% Alien Abduction (2014) The events that inspired the movie are more believable than the essential conceit of found footage. It sacrifices the story to constantly insist otherwise.‐ The Mary Sue

25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) Fifty Shades of Grey is so much smarter than its source material, but smarter in this case doesn't mean better. Not where it counts, at least.‐ The Mary Sue

No Score Yet Airplane vs. Volcano (2014) It's saying a lot about my hormones that a movie with the tag line "FLY LIKE HELL" brought a tear to my eye, but I'll admit I was invested and more impressed with the acting than I have been by other Asylum offerings.‐ The Mary Sue

88% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) I think the less you know going into this movie the better, so if you're a die-hard fan of Rinko Kikuchi or a film buff with a vested interest in how pop culture influences modern folklore, put yourself on Kumiko media blackout and just go see it already.‐ The Mary Sue

4.5/5 65% The Visit (2015) The Visit is somehow not only a good movie; it's an exceptional one that stands out from similar stories for its emotional authenticity and the respect it has for its characters.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 30% Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) There's a good movie buried somewhere in Independence Day: Resurgence, amidst the clunky exposition and embarrassing callbacks to the first film and disheartening one-liners delivered by Liam Hemsworth.‐ The Mary Sue
