Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015)

"As usual for the fifth entry in a film franchise, there's a lot of talk about whether this is "our last mission." If that's true, at least it'll go out proudly." ‐Oregonian

A LEGO Brickumentary (2015)

"Pretty much a 90-minute advertisement for Legos, and probably should have been an extra on the Blu-ray of "The Lego Movie." But still fun, because Legos are cool." ‐Oregonian

Irrational Man (2015)

"What's especially frustrating, compared to earlier, forgettable Allen misfires like "Anything Else" or "Scoop" is that "Irrational Man" is apparently meant to be taken seriously." ‐Oregonian

A Murder In The Park (2015)

"[An] explosive, riveting documentary." ‐Oregonian

Unexpected (2015)

"This tale of maternal bonding benefits from believable performances and a recognizably human setting." ‐Oregonian

B- 84%

Do I Sound Gay? (2015)

"The movie feels padded out just to get to a 75-minute running time. But there's food for thought here." ‐Oregonian

B+ 100%

3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015)

"It's a well-made movie, telling a story we should all hope never to hear the likes of again." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 24, 2015
F+ 16%

Pixels (2015)

"There are legitimate excuses for going to see "Pixels." Losing a bet, perhaps. Having a loved one held for ransom. Maybe a serious blow to the head." ‐Oregonian

C+ 33%

Lila & Eve (2015)

"A woman mourning her murdered son teams up with a friend she meets at a support group to take vengeance upon his killers in this earnest, increasingly improbable thriller." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 17, 2015
B 88%

Mr. Holmes (2015)

"Apart from the lead performance, this is an awfully sleepy take on one of the most alert characters in literature. But McKellen's work is enough to make this a notable addition to the more than 250 Sherlocks captured on film over the years." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 17, 2015
B+ 97%

Tangerine (2015)

"This is a universal story that could take place in a small Midwestern town, an African city, or a space station orbiting Venus." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 17, 2015
B 85%

Trainwreck (2015)

""Trainwreck" doesn't try to reinvent the wheel so much as rotate the tires of comedy." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 16, 2015
A- 89%

Cartel Land (2015)

"Without passing moral judgments on either group, "Cartel Land" provides a vivid illustration of the dangers inherent whenever a government fails to meet its citizens' needs to the extent that they take matters into their own hands." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 10, 2015
C+ 83%

Testament Of Youth (2015)

"There's no better time than the centenary of "The War to End All Wars" to commemorate its bloody folly. It's a shame that "Testament of Youth" does both in such a bloodless way." ‐Oregonian

D+ 19%

Self/less (2015)

"Instead of exploring the psychological implications of finding oneself in a new physical vessel but forced to sever all contact with one's previous life ... "Self/less" devolves into a predictable action thriller." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 9, 2015
C 16%

Aloft (2015)

"Vague, unsatisfying, emotionally distant parable about family tragedy and the healing power of art." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jul 3, 2015
C+ 25%

Terminator Genisys (2015)

"The movie, especially the first half, is so busy replicating visual tropes and entire scenes from Cameron's originals that you wonder if it has anything new up its sleeve at all." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 30, 2015
C 34%

Max (2015)

"At its heart "Max" is the story of a boy and his dog, which gives it a lot of leeway in the hokum department. Still, this is a pretty disposable tear-jerker, aimed squarely at the next generation of Army recruits." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 26, 2015
B 94%

The Farewell Party (2015)

"Obviously, this is tricky stuff, but directors Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit, both in their 40s, manage to mix morbidly amusing jokes with a wry appreciation for the seriousness of the subject matter." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 25, 2015
B 89%

Fresh Dressed (2015)

"There's not a lot of new insight, but first-time director Sacha Jenkins scored some key interviews for his accessible and entertaining pop-cultural history lesson." ‐Oregonian

Apu Trilogy (1954)

"The opportunity to see these timeless works of art on the big screen is one that should not be missed." ‐Oregonian

Inside Out (2015)

""Inside Out" expands the possibilities of animation. It's also a hilarious ride that delights the eye, the mind and the heart." ‐Oregonian

B 64%

Hungry Hearts (2015)

"The increasingly ubiquitous Driver handles himself well, as do the presumably numerous infant body doubles employed. But it's the Italian Rohrwacher who most impresses ..." ‐Oregonian

B+ 76%

The Connection (2015)

"Despite familiar elements ... "The Connection" remains tense and believable." ‐Oregonian

When Marnie Was There (2015)

"People who complain there aren't any interesting, smart movies about girls need to take their kids to films like this one." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 5, 2015
C 58%

Saint Laurent (2015)

""Saint Laurent" is dazzling to behold, for a while. But at two-and-a-half hours, it gets old, especially if you're not familiar enough with the man's life story to piece together exactly what's happening." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 5, 2015
B- 94%

Spy (2015)

"McCarthy still seems too willing to settle for slapstick and sentiment instead of mining her characters for truly human comedy." ‐Oregonian
Posted Jun 4, 2015
B 68%

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2015)

"Any movie in which a drunken Joseph Stalin plays the trombone can't be all bad." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 29, 2015
B+ 70%

Marie's Story (2015)

"For the most part, it's a convincingly acted, earnestly told drama that works on the heart and the head." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 29, 2015
B- 93%

Slow West (2015)

"The landscapes are glowingly captured by cinematographer Robbie Ryan, and the movie mostly resists grand gestures of import in favor of small moments of insight." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 22, 2015
C- 50%

Tomorrowland (2015)

"This theme-park-inspired adventure is one small step for cinema, one giant leap for corporate synergy." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 21, 2015
B+ 85%

Far From the Madding Crowd (2015)

"Mulligan doesn't have the aura of unattainability that Julie Christie did in the 1967 film version of "Far from the Madding Crowd," but her earthier appeal feels truer to the character and less like the idealized vision of a masculine imagination." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 15, 2015
B+ 83%

I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015)

"With the heyday of "Sesame Street" undeniably in the past, "I Am Big Bird" will primarily appeal to nostalgic grownups. But as Spinney demonstrates, you're never too old to be a kid at heart." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 15, 2015
C+ 73%

Welcome to Me (2015)

""Welcome to Me" gets credit for avoiding the pitfall of trivializing Alice's illness (borderline personality disorder), but never gets around to saying anything all that meaningful about it, either." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 8, 2015

The D Train (2015)

"There's fertile soil for comedy here, if Dan Lansmann were written as anything other than a lying, narcissistic, windbag sociopath." ‐Oregonian

B 82%

Dior and I (2015)

"All that effort just to make a dress still seems a bit silly, but the passion and integrity of those involved are hard not to take seriously." ‐Oregonian
Posted May 1, 2015
B 75%

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

"Director Joss Whedon follows up his billion-dollar superhero smash the way most sequel makers try to up their game: by amping up everything everybody liked the first time around, plus more! More! More!" ‐Oregonian

B- 55%

The Age of Adaline (2015)

"This YA-style romantic fantasy could have been cringe-inducing; instead it's a serviceable fable about the importance of mortality." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 23, 2015
A- 93%

Ex Machina (2015)

"It may not be a modern masterpiece of sci-fi, but it's close enough to pass for one." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 17, 2015
B- 89%

White God (2015)

"As a dark, Eastern European take on "Benji the Hunted," "White God" holds some fascination. But as an indictment of the evil that men do, it's all bark and no bite." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 17, 2015
B+ 97%

An Honest Liar (2015)

""An Honest Liar" is a fitting tribute to a figure whose stamina and wit only appear to be magical." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 10, 2015
B 91%

Metalhead (2015)

"Any film that features a cross-generational dance-off to Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction" can't be all bad." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 10, 2015
B 53%

The Mafia Kills Only in Summer (La Mafia Uccide solo d'Estate) (2015)

"With a deft touch that veers from wry, absurd humor to appalled outrage, the Italian journalist and satirist Pierfrancesco Diliberto makes a noteworthy film debut with "The Mafia Kills Only in the Summer."" ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 10, 2015
B+ 80%

Ned Rifle (2015)

"Smart writing and committed actors make up for the microscopic budget. You don't need to have seen the previous two films to enjoy "Ned Rifle," but it definitely helps." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 7, 2015
B+ 87%

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015)

"A melancholy ode to impossible dreams from the Austin, Texas-based filmmaking Zellner brothers." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 3, 2015
C+ 54%

Woman in Gold (2015)

"The star power of Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds is critically muted in this flatly directed true story." ‐Oregonian
Posted Apr 1, 2015
A- 85%

Merchants Of Doubt (2015)

"Robert Kenner's documentary is an effective takedown of the ways that PR efforts to discredit science have shifted from helping protect Big Tobacco's profits to fueling the climate change denial movement." ‐Oregonian
Posted Mar 27, 2015
B+ 100%

Seymour: An Introduction (2015)

"Octogenarian pianist Seymour Bernstein is the charming, inspirational subject of this appreciative, occasionally fawning documentary directed by the actor/novelist/filmmaker Ethan Hawke." ‐Oregonian
Posted Mar 27, 2015
B 97%

It Follows (2015)

"There's just enough detail to the movie's mythology to make it hold together, and just enough left unexplained to make things genuinely eerie." ‐Oregonian

B 47%

Home (2015)

"You could do a lot better in the kid-film arena than this, but you could also do a Smek of a lot worse." ‐Oregonian
