10/10 93% Anomalisa (2015) ANOMALISA is a thoughtful and distinctively original film. We've all seen a man going through a midlife crisis before, but never like this.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) As a long time fan, I would have appreciated perhaps another story than the recycled one offered here, but it is still nice to see all the old friends back.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

9/10 75% Band Of Robbers (2016) Quirky, cunning, and even a little heartwarming, this is a perfect example of taking a classic story and offering it to a brand new audience.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

6/10 45% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE accomplishes what it is striving for much of the time, which is little more than a crazy zombie flick with sex.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

4/10 13% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) Sure I've had my moments of enjoyment with PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, but this "final chapter" adds nothing interesting to the fading franchise.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 33% The Green Inferno (2015) If you are looking for a well shot horror movie about a tribe of cannibals, Roth did a pretty damn good job with his directorial return.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 57% Paper Towns (2015) This coming-of-age tale seems impossibly romanticized, yet somehow it still manages to remain grounded and truthful. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 78% Danny Collins (2015) The best aspect of the film is the music. Both Ryan Adams and Theodore Shapiro deliver a sweet sounding score, as well as a couple of nice tracks. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

5/10 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) Fifty Shades of Grey is by no means a masterpiece. Yet there are moments where it rises above the material thanks to the lovely Dakota Johnson who is luminous, and a director that helps paint a very pretty picture. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 80% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) It may not be be the smartest animated flick out there, but with all the wildly weird happenings, and impressive 3D effects being flung out at you, it is absolutely entertaining. Simply put, SpongeBob rocks!‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

4/10 16% Strange Magic (2015) At best, it is a tunefully cheerful collection of pop songs with decent animation. At worst, it is a meandering and dull hour and forty minutes of musical theatre that will be grating to anybody over the age of seven. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

2/10 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) There are moments of sexy, and moments of crazy, but as a whole THE BOY NEXT DOOR is not worth paying a visit. ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 75% Starry Eyes (2014) It may take a little while to get there, but once it does it is worth taking this diabolically offbeat journey.‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
