The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015)
"Working from Phoebe Gloeckner's 2002 graphic novel/memoir, Heller gets the shabby glamour and bleached sunshine of '70s San Francisco just right, coloring several scenes with vivid blooms of animation."
Cop Car (2015)
Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015)
"Gibran's little life lessons have been turned into three-minute haiku by different animators and spread across the film. Each one soars, even if the plot holding them together is frustratingly Disneyish."
The Gift (2015)
Straight Outta Compton (2015)
The Walking Dead (1994)
Ricki And The Flash (2015)
"Ricki raises smart questions about why a mother's musical ambitions are so much more selfish than, say, seven-time dad Mick Jagger's, and even the shamelessly corny sing-along finale wrings a few real tears out."
Dark Places (2015)
Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015)
I Am Chris Farley (2015)
Best Of Enemies (2015)
"This deliciously feisty doc contextualizes their verbal brawls and the odd love-hate (mostly hate) rivalry between two men who seemed able to regard their own sense of heroism only through the other's villainy."
"Vivas tries to add a family-drama twist to an otherwise standard survival story, but the characters aren't complex enough (and the secrets aren't explosive enough) to elevate this beyond a basic zombie flick."
Listen To Me Marlon (2015)
The End Of The Tour (2015)
Two Step (2015)
"Just as director Antoine Fuqua starts to close in on something interesting and unexpected, he retreats to the safety of his corner and gives us what we've seen too many times before: a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs."
Paper Towns (2015)
"Unlike in its predecessor, The Fault in Our Stars, the path to pubescent enlightenment in Paper Towns is more literal than existential, giving your tear ducts the night off at the cost of something a little deeper."
The Vatican Tapes (2015)
Irrational Man (2015)
Lila & Eve (2015)
The Look of Silence (2015)
Mr. Holmes (2015)
"The mystery subplot lacks the ingenuity of the greatest Holmes stories, but McKellen excels, switching effortlessly between the reclusive beekeeper with a faltering memory and the elegant younger detective at the height of his powers."
Glass Chin (2015)
"Beneath all of his bad-boy shtick, Apatow's always been a pretty conventional moralist. But Schumer gives their raunchy rom-com enough of her signature spikiness to prevent it from ever feeling predictable."
The Gallows (2015)
"This is another found-footage movie that, with a little art direction and some actual cinematography, could easily have been a decent little terrorizer. Instead, it comes mostly unglued thanks to its hacky gimmick."
Do I Sound Gay? (2015)
10,000 Km (2015)
Cartel Land (2015)
Magic Mike XXL (2015)
"Supporting players including Jada Pinkett Smith, Andie MacDowell, and Elizabeth Banks have good fun with underwritten roles, and the movie's take on desire is admirably democratic (Sex: it's not just for hot millenials!)."
Terminator Genisys (2015)
Back to the Future Part II (1989)
Fresh Dressed (2015)
Big Game (2015)
Batkid Begins (2015)
Ted 2 (2015)
"You realize what it must be like to be trapped in detention with a bunch of 15-year-old boys who think there's nothing more hilarious than repeating the same jokes about porn, pot, and pulling your pud over and over again. It's funny, until it's not."
Balls Out (2015)
