Posted Oct 24, 2015
2/4 53% I Smile Back (2015) "Silverman is so committed and convincing that she makes you wish there were more to her character, more to her story. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 23, 2015
2/4 35% Knock Knock (2015) "As a piece of social satire, "Knock Knock" winds up being not just toothless but anticlimactic. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 9, 2015
3.5/4 86% Steve Jobs (2015) "The energy is relentless and the actors all more than meet the challenge of not only keeping up with Sorkin's trademark, rat-a-tat patter but also making it sing. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 8, 2015
2/4 72% He Named Me Malala (2015) "In the place of ... much-needed substance, we get filler in the form of wispy, pastel-colored animated segments. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 2, 2015
2.5/4 54% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) "Hotel Transylvania 2 is the greatest movie Adam Sandler and Kevin James have ever made together. I believe this is called "damning with faint praise." " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 29, 2015
3/4 93% A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story (2015) "Her story would be inspiring in and of itself, but Velasquez is such an effervescent, charismatic subject, she can't help but win your affection as well as your respect. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 25, 2015
1.5/4 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) ""Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" crams in more lore, supporting characters, backstories and motivations to the extent that it becomes difficult to get a grasp on anything. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 17, 2015
4/4 86% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "This is deft and daring storytelling that will grip anyone who's willing to be a little uncomfortable - make that a lot uncomfortable - and who's willing to follow it into some dark and twisted territory. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 15, 2015
2/4 19% The Perfect Guy (2015) "Decent trash that could have been delicious trash with a little more daring. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 12, 2015
1.5/4 33% War Room (2015) "War Room is the most slickly made faith-based film I've seen yet in terms of production values, but that doesn't make it quote-unquote good, per se. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Sep 11, 2015
1.5/4 22% Before We Go (2015) "Very little here is special, despite the individual charms of Evans and co-star Alice Eve. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Aug 21, 2015
1.5/4 42% American Ultra (2015) ""American Ultra" tries to combine a sweet, slacker romance with a slick, super-violent action flick. If that sounds jarring to you, that's probably because it is. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 20, 2015

Posted Jul 24, 2015
3/4 66% Unexpected (2015) "Except for a bit of contrived conflict that arises toward the end, the connection between these two expectant mothers-who are at vastly different points in their lives-rings with a mutual kindness and compassion. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 24, 2015
3/4 81% Ant-Man (2015) "The overwhelming, self-serious sense that we are watching something Very Important blissfully doesn't exist in Ant-Man. It's just plain fun: light, breezy, simple and enjoyable. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jul 22, 2015
3/4 85% Trainwreck (2015) "It's a familiar rom-com dynamic, but the reversal of traditional on-screen gender roles-combined with Schumer and Hader's easy chemistry-makes "Trainwreck" feel new and fresh. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 17, 2015
2/4 56% Minions (2015) "Fittingly, because they're pill-shaped, the Minions work best in small doses. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com

Posted Jul 10, 2015
3/4 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "If you're not a fireman or a police officer or a cowboy beneath those breakaway pants, then who are you, really? This is the central question of Magic Mike XXL. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jul 1, 2015
2/4 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) ""Terminator Genisys" turns unfortunately jokey and self-referential, to the point that it borders on parody. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

98% E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) "It holds up beautifully. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jun 29, 2015

2.5/4 46% Ted 2 (2015) "If you liked the original Ted, Seth MacFarlane's 2012 surprise smash about a pot-smoking, potty-mouthed teddy bear, then you will probably like Ted 2. It is essentially the exact same movie, and more - and less. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com

Posted Jun 19, 2015
2/4 71% Jurassic World (2015) "So basically, Jurassic World is a big-budget indictment of corporate greed, jammed with product placement for Samsung and Mercedes-Benz and Beats by Dre and Coca-Cola. " ‐ ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jun 16, 2015
2/4 43% Madame Bovary (2015) "There's little tension as her romantic and financial calamities collide, only mere traces of tragedy. Even at nearly two hours, much-needed character development is sorely lacking. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

3/4 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "I leapt out of my seat and grabbed the arm of the critic sitting next to me so often (and he did the same, although he shall remain nameless) that you'd think we'd never seen a horror movie before. " ‐ RogerEbert.com

Posted Apr 25, 2015
1.5/4 22% Little Boy (2015) "It's meant to be a tale of uplift for faith-based audiences, but instead wears viewers down with a heavy-handed narrative, an overbearing score and voiceover that spells out everything in cringe-inducing, folksy tones. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 24, 2015

Posted Apr 22, 2015
0/4 5% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) "Truly, there is not a single redeeming moment in director Andy Fickman's film. A general flatness and lethargy permeates these reheated proceedings. " ‐ RogerEbert.com
