71% Pawn Sacrifice (2015) "I was on the edge of my seat watching this movie. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Sep 15, 2015
73% Everest (2015) "Shot in Nepal and the Italian Alps, cinematographer Salvatore Totino has a lot to work with and he makes the most of it. The technical aspects of this grueling film are superb throughout. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Sep 3, 2015
45% A Walk In The Woods (2015) "It is fun to see both stars doing a light comedy like this in a movie that, in another era, might have been perfectly suited for a Bob Hope and Bing Crosby-style road picture. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 31, 2015
3/5 45% No Escape (2015) "No Escape is insanely intense. Is it credible? Who cares. This movie is full of heart-pounding action that takes your breath away. From start to finish it is just plain fun. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 24, 2015
2/5 93% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "Way overrated when it played Sundance, if this disappointing and dreary film presents one of the most unappealing ensembles of characters I have seen in a long time. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
1/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) "An epic fail in Hollywood's comic book movie universe this not-so-fantastic flop is so bad it could send the whole genre on a downward spiral. What a mess. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
4/5 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "An exceptional young cast and strong direction make this powerful and gritty N.W.A. biopic a cut above most showbiz sagas. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
3/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "Guy RItchie's in-your-face directorial style serves this blast from the past well but it is the cool and funny chemistry between Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer that makes this a nice tribute to the 60's classic spy series. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
5/5 79% Cop Car (2015) "Seek this riveting crime drama out wherever you can find it. Kevin Bacon is creepily great as a corrupt sheriff out to get his police car back from two joy-riding young boys. Director Jon Watts scores with a masterful gem. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
3/5 42% American Ultra (2015) "Jesse Eisenberg at his most neurotic saves this frenetic action comedy and makes it worth watching despite an overabundance of violence laced in with its silly plot. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
2/5 8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) "It's NOT a hit,man. By the numbers and mindnumbingly dull action movie is a robotic as its leading man. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 21, 2015
3.5/5 65% Ricki And The Flash (2015) "Is there anything Meryl Streep can't do? She is astonishing again and at her absolute best is this rockin' fun movie that proves Streep can sing with the best of them. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 4, 2015
5/5 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) "Hooves down the funniest animated movie of the year. Aardman has done it again - and brilliantly . Shear heaven for 'toon fans. Somewhere Jacques Tati and Charlie Chaplin are smiling just like me. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Aug 4, 2015
4/5 26% Vacation (2015) "This franchise reboot ratchets up the raunch and the fun making VACATION a breath of fresh air and raucous laughs. Truly hilarious stuff with lots of comic smarts and a great cast. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 29, 2015
5/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "Not just the best movie of the summer, but also the best SUMMER movie of the summer. A whipsmart action film that dazzles from start to finish. Cruise in control of the best 'MI' yet. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 29, 2015
3/5 56% Paper Towns (2015) "There is no fault in the new stars of the latest John Green book-to-movie adaptation and this teen dramedy is a slight cut above the norm in the genre even if a lot of it doesn't add up. Still, it's got heart and a nice theme about living life to the max. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 25, 2015
2/5 16% Pixels (2015) "The premise is clever , the effects are good and it was nice seeing Pac Man again but Pixels is stretched way too thin for its own good. Are kids really going to care about this 80's throwback? " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 23, 2015
61% Southpaw (2015) "Southpaw might not rewrite the rules of this genre, but it certainly is a sterling addition to a great legacy of movies set in the ring. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 21, 2015
4/5 82% The Overnight (2015) "It may owe a lot to BOB & CAROL & TED & ALICE, but this new age suburban swingers comedy is very funny and enlightening. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 5, 2015
5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Pedal-to-the-medal kick ass action drives this summer winner to the max. If there is any justice Charlize Theron will get an Oscar nomination. And so will the movie. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 4, 2015
3/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) "Stuffed with jast as many, if not more, laughs than the original. Ted 2 is blissfully politically incorrect so if you are easily offended better lighten up if you plan on seeing this Seth MacFarlane jokebook. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 4, 2015
5/5 95% Amy (2015) "A harrowing and heartbreaking , ultimately very sad documentary look at the life and death of Amy Winehouse, a singer in the mold of the all time greats who let the dark side of fame get the better of her. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 4, 2015
3/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "A bare bones plotline won't matter to fans seeking a good time at this stripped-down 'hey, let's put on a show' road movie. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jul 4, 2015
2/5 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "The return of Schwarzenegger to his signature role is the main attraction of this fifth installment in the Terminator franchise. He's not the problem as much as a terribly convoluted time travelling storyline that does not honor the best of this series. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 25, 2015
81% Batkid Begins (2015) "Entertaining and wonderfully satisfying. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 23, 2015
4/5 89% Dope (2015) "Fresh and original movie where geeks meet street with very funny consequences. A terrific cast and smart script make this Sundance sensation a summer winner. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 15, 2015
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "Truly a mind blowing adventure, Inside Out is wildly inventive and totally original. This one is for everyone - kids AND adults. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 15, 2015
3/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) "Not your typical movie biopic, Love & Mercy is a harrowing musical ride into the mind of Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys. Splitting the role between John Cusack and Paul Dano is a risky move that mostly pays off. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 14, 2015
5/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) "This Sundance winner is something special indeed, a movie featuring teens that can't be classified as a TEEN MOVIE. It's a masterful funny/sad and illuminating human story. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 14, 2015
4/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) "Dino-mite special effects take this sequel to new heights. Returning to the spirit of the original and ignoring the previous two editions, Jurassic World is just pure people-chomping fun. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 14, 2015
3/5 33% Entourage (2015) "If you were a fan of the TV show will you be disappointed? Probably not. It's nice to have Ari, Vince and the gang back even if at nearly two hours this ENTOURAGE feels a bit like forced binge watching. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 6, 2015
4.5/5 94% Spy (2015) "For my money SPY is the funniest film so far this year. I can't recall laughing out loud this much in a long time. Paul Feig has the magic touch when it comes these kinds of movies - and that is no small feat. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Jun 6, 2015
2/5 48% San Andreas (2015) "The fault isn't in the earthquake in SAN ANDREAS, it's in the script. Dwayne Johnson's heroics may be able to save everything else in this by-the-numbers disaster (movie), but not that. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted May 29, 2015
19% Aloha (2015) "Crowe clearly is a romantic at heart and has created an intriguing film dealing with a man whose personal life is caught somewhere in the middle between his past and future. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted May 28, 2015
4/5 48% Ride (2015) "Helen Hunt proves as adept behind the camera as she is in front of it in this funny and moving story that movies rarely do - the relationship between a mother and son. It's a winner. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted May 10, 2015
3/5 58% Maggie (2015) "Understated and low key this is a surprising zombie movie that features fine performances from Abigail Breslin and maybe the best that Arnold Schwarzenegger has ever given. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted May 10, 2015
1/5 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "I want my 87 minutes back. Directed, produced and starring smart women in a complete and total comic misfire that is almost painful to watch. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted May 10, 2015
4.5/5 86% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) "I was never a fan of the 1967 version with Julie Christie, but director Thomas Vinterberg gets it all right this time with this hugely romantic adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel that features a never-better Carey Mulligan in the lead role. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 27, 2015
3/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "It suffers from a bit of Transformersitis in laying on the action and effects too thick this time. The thrill may be gone in seeing these comic book icons together but the banter between them still works and it does have its moments of sheer fun. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 24, 2015
4/5 63% The Water Diviner (2015) "Russell Crowe's feature directorial debut is a triumph for him, an epic adventure and humane story that reminds me of the kind of movies I used to love before Hollywood found gold in them thar comic books. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 24, 2015
4/5 55% The Age of Adaline (2015) "Like a cross between a Twilight Zone episode and Somewhere In Time, The Age Of Adaline is a splendid new romantic drama with a beating heart all its own and terrific performances from Blake Lively and Harrison Ford. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 24, 2015
2/5 26% Child 44 (2015) "If the Russian accents from this non-Russian cast weren't grating enough, the convoluted and seedy story of Child 44 would be reason enough to pass on this one despite the usually reliable presence of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 17, 2015
2.5/5 62% Unfriended (2015) "Finally Hollywood has figured out how to get teens off the internet and into theatres. Make a movie that takes place ENTIRELY in front of a computer screen. But after 82 minutes you may feel a migraine coming on . " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 17, 2015
36% Beyond The Reach (2015) "It provides a nice showcase for the villainous talents of Douglas. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 15, 2015
4/5 54% Woman in Gold (2015) "Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds make a great pair in this fascinating and true tale that makes for a highly entertaining and compelling tale. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 3, 2015
4/5 79% Furious 7 (2015) "Spectacular stunts, a touching send-off for Paul Walker and pedal-to-the-metal action make this one furiously good - best in the series so far. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Apr 3, 2015
3/5 29% Get Hard (2015) "For some reason this movie offended a lot of critic-types at SXSW but the only thing that would really be offensive here is if it wasn't funny. And thanks to a nice teaming of Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart this is surprisingly funny stuff. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Mar 25, 2015
4/5 78% Danny Collins (2015) "Al Pacino shows a new side of himself - rock star - in Danny Collins and that's something to sing about. He pulls it off and is backed by a terrific cast in this smart and entertainment movie for grownups. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2.5/5 28% Insurgent (2015) "The action sequences have been ramped up and Insurgent smartly diverges from the book but it's still such a confusing and uninvolving storyline this YA adaptation made me HUNGER for something more. Thank God for Shailene Woodley though. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2/5 17% The Gunman (2015) "Sean Penn, an actor you can't take your eyes off when he's on screen , is not the problem with The Gunman. Neither is its terrific , if underused , cast. This attempt to turn Penn into a late-blooming action star is just too convoluted. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
Posted Mar 20, 2015
4/5 60% Run All Night (2015) "In the vein of those tough guy Warner Bros movies of the 40's , Liam Neeson and Ed Harris show what pro acting is all about in this edge-of-your-seat action thriller that may be far-fetched , but highly entertaining anyway. " ‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
