Demolition (2016)

"It demands a lot to make a complicated character like Davis sympathetic, especially as we watch him take a sledgehammer to his life. But Gyllenhaal is up to the task." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Take Me To The River (2016)

"At a time when many films can be viewed and summarily forgotten, "River" unsettles and lingers long afterwards -- just like the ghosts that haunt this family." ‐San Jose Mercury News

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016)

"The second to last entry in what is a so-so franchise, "The Divergent Series: Allegiant" is squirrelly, chasing from one big concept to another without satisfactorily executing most of them." ‐San Jose Mercury News

The Witch (2016)

"For anyone seeking an intelligent, atmospheric American horror story reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe, Hawthorne and the Brothers Grimm, "The Witch" is the kind of pure movie magic that sends chills up the spine." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Deadpool (2016)

Joy (2015)

3.5/4 88%

The Big Short (2015)

"While "The Big Short" could have benefitted from an even harder, names-taking edge, its satirical approach succeeds in a key way: Shaking us awake to the possibility that history might be repeating itself." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Spotlight (2015)

"One of the most accurate depictions of journalism put on film, perhaps even the finest example we've seen yet. It's easily one of 2015's best films." ‐San Jose Mercury News

I Smile Back (2015)

"Let's hope the next time Silverman lands a meaty dramatic role -- and she surely will -- it will be attached to a stronger movie with a screenplay that adds more context and gives more texture to its characters." ‐San Jose Mercury News

The Visit (2015)

"Frightfully fun, with Shyamalan relentless toying with us and cramming in horror genre references." ‐San Jose Mercury News

A Walk In The Woods (2015)

"Sure, "A Walk in the Woods" stumbles at times, but it does make for an entertaining, leisurely spent few hours at the movies. All of it goes down charmingly and you'll likely walk out with a smile plastered on your face." ‐San Jose Mercury News

We Are Your Friends (2015)

Mistress America (2015)

""Mistress America" defies pigeonholing, which is true of anything produced by the insightful Baumbach, who always offers interesting observations about relationships and human frailties." ‐San Jose Mercury News

3.5/4 91%

The End Of The Tour (2015)

"This is a peel-back-the-layers drama that addresses the perplexing themes of "Infinite Jest," which apply to us all. What "The End of the Tour" focuses on is truly an axiom for our times." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015)

"After taking a few stabs at the right formula, the series has finally found its voice, and Ethan Hunt and company give James Bond a real run for his blockbuster money." ‐San Jose Mercury News

The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

Mr. Holmes (2015)

"McKellen puts an indelible stamp on Holmes. He gives us a more seasoned, crankier Holmes, a former detective who's trying to stop a decaying mind from turning his own life into an unsolved mystery." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Minions (2015)

"A fun, cheerful time passer that's filled with many random zingers that will leave you snickering afterward." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Magic Mike XXL (2015)

"What's particularly energizing about "Magic Mike XXL" is how it exuberantly celebrates sexuality, and does so unabashedly and unapologetically. It's something you don't often see in mainstream films." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Batkid Begins (2015)

""Batkid Begins" doesn't have answers for our many troubles, nor will it change the world, but it provides hope for humanity, and that's something we surely need to see more of right now." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Dope (2015)

"While Famuyiwa deserves the lion's share of acclaim for making "Dope" such an inventive, hyperactive and electrifying comedy, it is Moore who gives "Dope" its big heart." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Spy (2015)

"Feig draws out McCarthy's best, and she's up to the challenge, whether it's expressing tenderness and anger or slapsticking her way through the physical humor." ‐San Jose Mercury News

2.5/4 48%

San Andreas (2015)

"As for the story line, there are faults and cracks aplenty. But "San Andreas" does know where its epicenter must be: overdone, loud, anything-but-realistic and enthusiastic destruction sequences." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Tomorrowland (2015)

"Noble intentions don't always net smashing results, and such is the case with the disappointing "Tomorrowland" ..." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Far From the Madding Crowd (2015)

""Far From the Madding Crowd" is one the most satisfying, finest romantic period dramas to grace screens, big or small, in awhile." ‐San Jose Mercury News

3/4 44%

True Story (2015)

"Franco downplays his accused killer role, speaking softly and dazedly, which works eerily well. Hill makes Finkel driven and obsessed, yet never heroic." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Desert Dancer (2015)

"A little gem that sparkles brightly as it celebrates not just dance but unshackled, uncensored creative expression." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Serena (2015)

"The film is haunted by a sense that something was overlooked in translation from the book." ‐San Jose Mercury News
Posted Mar 24, 2015
3/4 28%

Insurgent (2015)

"That's a lot of back story to wade through and at times the expository world-building weighs heavy here too. But in "Insurgent," twists and developments bulk up the story and help further define the characters." ‐San Jose Mercury News
Posted Mar 18, 2015
2.5/4 60%

Run All Night (2015)

"We've been up and down this road before, and even though Kinnaman, Neeson and Harris make interesting passengers, the overused tires in "Run All Night" go bald." ‐San Jose Mercury News

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)

"If the first film felt like snuggling up with a warm blanket, this one is like sipping a comforting cup of warm tea." ‐San Jose Mercury News
Posted Mar 3, 2015
2.5/4 56%

Focus (2015)

"This kind of film needs a punchy right hook to follow up its clever, if outlandish, jab late in the game, and "Focus" doesn't deliver." ‐San Jose Mercury News
Posted Feb 25, 2015
3/4 74%

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

"If you're not averse to ridiculous violence and un-PC irreverence, your money will be well spent." ‐San Jose Mercury News

3.5/4 89%

A Most Violent Year (2015)

"The performances are memorable. Isaac uses understatement with the appropriate emotional outburst and Chastain is the film's firecracker." ‐San Jose Mercury News

Selma (2015)

""Selma" demands to be seen now and by the generations that follow." ‐San Jose Mercury News
