Joy (2015)

"It's awfully hard for me to not find some joy in this imperfect movie about a daring woman who digs deep and soars. You got a problem with that?" ‐The Movie Minute

The Big Short (2015)

"Adam McKay has delivered an energetic, highly entertaining movie that could be titled 'The 2008 Credit Bubble Burst for Dummies'. That dummy would be me." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Dec 6, 2015

In the Heart of the Sea (2015)

"Ron Howard's clunky telling of how Herman Melville researched Moby Dick is an ambitious slog." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Dec 6, 2015

The Danish Girl (2015)

"Buoyed by two remarkable performances, this is a film that becomes increasingly alluring once it puts its (great looking) clothes back on." ‐The Movie Minute

Creed (2015)

"Don't go assuming this is just another undercard in the Rocky series. After a somewhat predictable start, Ryan Coogler digs in to deliver what is undeniably a hit to the heart: the most emotionally satisfying crescendo of the year. " ‐The Movie Minute

Carol (2015)

"Todd Haynes' immaculate film sweeps us away, but not for the reasons I was expecting. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Nov 17, 2015

Miss You Already (2015)

"I'm obedient. I cried. But it wasn't a good cry." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Nov 4, 2015

Spectre (2015)

"An action extravaganza of diminishing returns, this Bond chapter left me a little bit shaken, but definitely not stirred." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Nov 3, 2015

Spotlight (2015)

"While Tom McCarthy's beautifully crafted film about the Boston Globe investigation of the sex abuse in the Church is very much of a time and place, it also couldn't be more important now. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Nov 3, 2015

Brooklyn (2015)

"Set in the 1950's New York borough, this especially charming, beautifully made story of an Irish newcomer sweeps us all off our sensibly clad feet." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Nov 3, 2015

Bridge of Spies (2015)

"Deliberately not reinventing the wheel, Spielberg and esteemed company have delivered an absorbing, feel good historical drama." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Oct 15, 2015

Room (2015)

"This remarkable adaptation is unnerving, intimate and surprisingly cool. You'll be as moved, curious and safe as you might want to be. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Oct 15, 2015

Steve Jobs (2015)

"It's fitting, I suppose, that a movie about the complicated man behind Apple be complicated as well and, in that sense, this adventurous Danny Boyle/Aaron Sorkin spin succeeds. But, is that dazzle enough? " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Oct 8, 2015

The Walk (2015)

"Robert Zemeckis, retelling Petit's most famous walk, creates his own art, with a 3D mastery that is nothing but depth defying and beautifully sweat provoking. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Sep 27, 2015

The Martian (2015)

"A mass appeal movie that proclaims it's going to 'science the shit out of this'? Go figure: this genuinely thrilling sci-fi thriller about smart people is also sensational entertainment. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Sep 25, 2015

Black Mass (2015)

"While the whole is less than the sum of its parts, this retelling of the Whitey Bulger story sure has some magnificent parts. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Sep 15, 2015

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)

"Even if it isn't as much of grabber as the TV series, Guy Ritchie's reboot sure gets points for style." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Aug 11, 2015

The Gift (2015)

"There's a movie lover's gift at the heart of Joel Edgerton's terrifically entertaining thriller. Because this chilly chiller has a lot more on its mind than only getting you to jump out of your seat. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Aug 3, 2015

Vacation (2015)

"Perhaps the funniest thing about this silly sequel is the shock and horror some are expressing in its wake. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015)

"You sure get your bang for the buck with this one. Tom Cruise, and his team deliver an action packed espionage thriller that's so eye popping you hardly notice you have no idea of why they're really doing all that stuff. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Ant-Man (2015)

"If you can hang in there an hour and a half, this latest Marvel installment does, finally, deliver. But why do we have to wait so long?" ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Trainwreck (2015)

"Amy Schumer's Trainwreck is anything but. Baudy, assured, realistic and mature this laugh-out-loud comedy is a delight." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Irrational Man (2015)

"Has Woody worn me down, getting me to (almost) shrug my shoulders at this latest spin on a romance between an older man and younger woman? " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Mr. Holmes (2015)

" It's Ian McKellen who, in a brilliant turn, makes this class act one that should be remembered at awards season. In great company and greater surroundings, you still just can't take your eyes (or heart) off of him." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 15, 2015

Self/less (2015)

"This movie is as bad as it looks. Director Tarsem Singh never wrangles Alex and David Pastor's mess of a mélange into anything comprehensible. Too bad, really, as, somewhere buried deep inside here is a decent concept. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jul 7, 2015

Magic Mike XXL (2015)

"Proving it's not just looks, but heart, the effectively packaged but very uneven entertainment delivers a few things that are just darn irresistible." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 30, 2015

Ted 2 (2015)

"Do you have to be high in order to laugh here? No, but for a whole lot of this movie it sure feels that way." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 24, 2015

Inside Out (2015)

"There's no real way to prepare yourself for the flat out marvel of Inside Out, the Pixar release that not only revives the studio's legacy, but the whole concept of family entertainment. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 16, 2015

Jurassic World (2015)

"Don't sweat it if you're running a little late for the screening you bought tickets for. Not much happens in this chapter's first hour or so. And then all hell breaks loose, delivering exactly what you bought those tickets to see." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 10, 2015

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015)

"Shooting a burst of much needed oxygen into the current scene, this very lively winner thrives on its unabashed love of film and innovative yet poignant storytelling. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 8, 2015

Spy (2015)

"This is the movie we Melissa McCarthy fans have been waiting for: a sweet, silly and stealthily smart spoof that delivers genuine laughs. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 3, 2015

Entourage (2015)

"Boys will be boys. You were expecting Shakespeare, maybe?" ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jun 2, 2015

Aloha (2015)

"Aloha is a word with many meanings. In the case of Cameron Crowe's latest film, it's definition can only be "whaaaa?"." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted May 28, 2015

Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)

"It may not be well, you know, perfect, but this harmonious sequel still sings." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted May 13, 2015

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

"Well, hot damn! George Miller's Mad Max reboot kicks the superhero action genre in the butt, charging forth with a furious yet streamlined energy that changes the game for everybody." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted May 13, 2015

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

"Talk about feeding the beast. Josh Whedon's never dull chapter in the franchise is practically bursting at its seams, relentlessly serving up just what the fans of this brand are expecting. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Apr 29, 2015

The Forger (2015)

"I felt a little guilty not liking John Travolta's pale imitation of a melodrama. But, as routine reduced to redundant, I got over that." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Apr 22, 2015

The Water Diviner (2015)

"Russell Crowe acquits himself nicely in this overly ambitious yet still slim historical romantic drama." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Apr 21, 2015

Woman in Gold (2015)

"The real life heroes of this gutsy story deserve far better than the dumbed down and white washed treatment they get here." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Mar 30, 2015

Cinderella (2015)

"Yes, it's enchanting, but this beautiful version is also something very much more." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Mar 11, 2015

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)

"The title may have double meaning, but the singular rewards of this sequel are as rich as the original." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Mar 4, 2015

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

"A flaccid S and M movie that's more infuriating than titillating? Happy Valentine's Day." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Feb 12, 2015

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

"The crazier Matthew Vaughn's homage to James Bond becomes, the greater it is. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Feb 11, 2015

The Rewrite (2015)

"Granted you'd think a movie about a screenwriter could have been at least a little less rote, but that doesn't mean this rom com isn't offering up some sweet entertainment. " ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Feb 9, 2015

Black or White (2015)

"Mike Binder's got the heart but not the grit to fully tap the potential of this well intentioned drama." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jan 29, 2015

The Boy Next Door (2015)

"Don't we...and Jennifer Lopez...deserve better than this routine at best possible guilty pleasure?" ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jan 22, 2015

The Humbling (2015)

"For those willing to meet it halfway, this beautifully pedigreed hybrid offers up some real and strange delights." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jan 21, 2015

Cake (2015)

"Is it truly such a surprise Jennifer Aniston is as good as she is in this otherwise modest drama? Look back, people: your Friend has been mixing it up in independent films throughout her very successful career." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jan 21, 2015

American Sniper (2015)

"Much has been written about what this film is not. What it is, undoubtedly, is one damned compelling movie." ‐The Movie Minute
Posted Jan 6, 2015

A Most Violent Year (2015)

"With this gritty, savvy and finely wrought drama, J.C. Chandor establishes himself as one of the most exciting directors of his generation. " ‐The Movie Minute
