Anomalisa (2015)

"That, perhaps, is the genius of Anomalisa: its ability to inspire pity for unpleasant puppets-and their puppeteers." Washington Free Beacon

The Revenant (2015)

"The Revenant is a muddled and lumpy affair, one whose occasionally brilliant flourishes are buried in an overlong movie in love with its own sense of grandiose suffering." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
4/4 75%

The Hateful Eight (2015)

"Sprawling throughout, with clearly delineated sections that are alternately very talky and very bloody, I loved it. But your mileage may vary." Washington Free Beacon

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"The Force Awakens is fun. I'm not sure that it's great. ... But on the heels of the prequels, well, maybe fun is all we really need." Washington Free Beacon

Chi-Raq (2015)

"Chi-Raq may not be the most coherent critique of inner city violence or even the best film about race hitting theaters this winter ... but it is Lee's most vital work in years." Washington Free Beacon

Spotlight (2015)

Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 61%

Legend (2015)

"Legend is the best movie of the year if your idea of a great movie is watching one of our preeminent actors hamming it up for two hours and change in service of a lacking story." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 85%

Trainwreck (2015)

"One of the funniest movies I've seen this year, suffused with the sort of raunchy sentimentality that made [Apatow's] previous films such amusing romps." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 39%

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

"Sometimes a metaphor can be a prison too, shackling creativity to an under-considered thought." Washington Free Beacon

By The Sea (2015)

"For those of you who complain about the multiplex offering nothing of substance for adult audiences, this is a grand opportunity for you to put your money where your mouth is." Washington Free Beacon

Spectre (2015)

Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 71%

Crimson Peak (2015)

"Beautiful and well-acted, expertly staged and shot, but tonally very uneven, veering wildly from one style of film to another with little warning." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 91%

Bridge of Spies (2015)

"Bridge of Spies is a bit overstuffed and full of itself, but it is competently made, a little exciting and a little funny and a little, well, little." Washington Free Beacon

3/4 87%

Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon (2015)

"This is a celebration, not an examination, and those looking for a critique of the ribald publication, radio show, off-Broadway play, and film franchise [should go] elsewhere." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 73%

Everest (2015)

"This is a tale of hubris and tragedy, a reminder that pushing oneself solely for the point of pushing oneself is not a particularly good use of one's time on this planet." Washington Free Beacon

3/4 92%

Pawn Sacrifice (2015)

"Histrionic Tobey Maguire is my least-favorite iteration of the actor, but he is certainly believable as the prodigal loon." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3/4 75%

Black Mass (2015)

"A gripping character study and the best-acted film of the year so far, an unnerving look at the pursuit of power." Washington Free Beacon

The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

The Gallows (2015)

"I wouldn't want to definitively say The Gallows is the nadir of the found footage genre ... but I have to hope we're nearing rock bottom." Washington Free Beacon

4/4 97%

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

"Miller's commitment to things that look cool cannot be overstated. Mad Max Fury Road is a never-ending stream of such things" Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 58%

Maggie (2015)

"Maggie is beautifully shot. Hobson and director of photography Lukas Ettlin make excellent use of natural lighting to create a mood of disaster and despair." Washington Free Beacon

2.5/4 75%

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

"It's too bad Avengers: Age of Ultron lacks dramatic tension and has a more or less nonsensical plotline, because its component parts are frequently entertaining." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 93%

Ex Machina (2015)

"Alex Garland's Ex Machina uses a compelling, well-contained story to examine society's growing anxieties, something he's made a habit of doing throughout his career." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 79%

Furious 7 (2015)

"Furious Seven is constructed of clichés ('You do whatever you gotta do') and lines that aspire to be clichés ('There's a billion things that's wrong-but not in this moment')." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
3.5/4 97%

It Follows (2015)

"This impressive throwback to 80s slasher flicks is packing houses for good reason." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
1.5/4 17%

The Gunman (2015)

"Even for an action movie, The Gunman is ridiculously, almost courageously, dumb. It's also boring. So, you know, it's got that going for it." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2/4 60%

Run All Night (2015)

"A rather dour example of late Liam Neeson." Washington Free Beacon
Posted Jul 14, 2016
2.5/4 32%

Chappie (2015)

"When I say Chappie reminds me of Short Circuit 2 by way of Robocop and District 9, you have to understand that I mean it in the nicest sense possible." Washington Free Beacon
