3.5/5
Paper Towns (2015)
For all the drama and comedy, nothing much really happens in it - other than the palpable maturation of nearly every character in less than two hours.

3/5
Southpaw (2015)
Despite brilliant fight scenes and impressive performances, Southpaw is brought down by ham-handed storytelling.

Pixels (2015)
Pixels requires a lot of disbelief, but it is a blast to behold and a good way to see Sandler do something at a higher level.

X-Men (2000)
The best news is that you don't even have to know what a Marvel Comic is to enjoy X-Men.

Ant-Man (2015)
Ant-Man is an entertaining blend of a superhero origin story and a caper film, the funniest and most grounded Marvel movie to date.

Minions (2015)
An entire movie about them feels like eating a bowl of pure sugar. Which means very young kids will love it, while adults might feel a bit nauseous by the end.

Terminator Genisys does not just reboot the famous franchise, it puts the boots to all the earlier films, their iconic characters and any fans who expected T5 to show more respect for the origins of James Cameron's man vs. machine saga.

2.5/5
A sloppy and often silly road movie that takes most of the same characters we met in 2012 and gives them a last hurrah as macho male entertainers.

Ted 2 (2015)
It gave me at least eight good laughs - mostly from set pieces that had nothing to do with the story. Your mileage may vary.

Time has done little to diminish the power of E.T.'s signature moments.

Inside Out (2015)
A near-perfect balance of humour, pathos, adventure and poignant emotion. That makes it great entertainment for children and adults. The film is sophisticated, intelligent and heartfelt -- plus a ton of fun, too.

Compared to Steven Spielberg's much-loved original, this fourth instalment in the franchise is a cruel joke.

1.5/5
What a disappointment this is. Especially coming after Chapters 1 and 2, which both delivered the frights with a slow burn mixed with ingenuity and style.

Entourage (2015)
It is Piven who is the Gorilla Glue that holds this whole enterprise together. Without Piven's creative insanity, Entourage would not work this well again.

Poltergeist (2015)
The audience isn't invested in the characters or their fate. Bit of a problem.

4/5
Tomorrowland (2015)
Tomorrowland may be structurally flawed, but it is also wonderfully imaginative, visually arresting and completely daring. That makes it a winner for audiences willing to submit to the awkward flow of the narrative.

It is listless, boring and as flat to the floor as Paul Blart when he slams down in a coma or gets knocked down by a villain, a vehicle or a horse's hind hoof.

Furious 7 (2015)
Loud, long and laughably over-the-top, Furious 7 is one of the best pure action movies ever made.

Get Hard (2015)
It's like a chocolate wrapped in poop and then dipped in more chocolate. There's no way to enjoy it without tasting some crap.

1.5/5
Unfinished Business has a big heart, a tiny brain and a lot of bad attitude. That turns it into a murky mess as a movie.

Chappie (2015)
An uneasy mix of action and philosophy, with simplistic notions of good and evil and mother love proving to be a distraction from the main event.

Gladiator (2000)
By emphasizing big battles and spilled blood, Scott banks on the hope the movie audience will be no more discerning than the Colosseum's screaming mob.

Fifty Shades of Grey only has one shade: tedious self-pity. The other 49 shades promised in the title are missing from the movie version of the infamous novel.

The well-written thriller is a masterpiece of tension, brought to life by strong performances, a clever plot and ... yeah, of course we're joking. It's a crap movie.

Taken 3 (2015)
With his quirks and thoughtful manner, Whitaker seems to be in a different movie. Neeson knows better, just going through the motions and spouting the idiotic dialogue that Besson and Kamen cooked up in English and Russian.

Wes Anderson's latest opus, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is bloody bonkers and simply splendid.

The Gambler (2014)
At the risk of overselling what is a good but not great movie, The Gambler is a slick, stylish thriller about gambling, self-destruction and personal redemption.

It may be profane and sloppy and silly and insulting to the North Koreans, but The Interview is a guilty pleasure.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is a thrilling and a fitting end to an extraordinary fantasy adventure.

There is nothing unique about the film itself - except for the mesmerizing performance by Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role.

It is about as good and authentic and funny as we could expect of a movie based on a TV series about almost nothing.

Too episodic, too halting, too disjointed to be credited as an accomplished comedy.

Mockingjay - Part 1 is as dingy and dark as Blade Runner, but just as fascinating. No more party dresses catching fire. No more fantasy games. In their place is a war tableau that seems realistic, even if this is a futuristic fantasy film.

What seemed fresh and silly and naive and hilarious in 1994 - like the cascading joke sequence about the most annoying sound in the world - now seems contrived and repetitive and sometimes repulsive.

Interstellar (2014)
Interstellar is the most ambitious, intelligent and daring space epic since Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Gone Girl (2014)
Even those who have read Gillian Flynn's novel can expect to be surprised by the jolts and jumps in David Fincher's take on events.

It just gets sort of stupid. And the movie is too long. But these are minor quibbles.

The Calling (2014)
It comes to the screen as a clumsy tale, alas, but a strong cast that includes Oscar winner Susan Sarandon elevates matters somewhat.

Chicken Run (2000)
The claymation comedy Chicken Run is eggsactly what the doctor ordered. It's a witty, high-spirited adventure that will appeal to moviegoers of all ages. Call it chicken soup for the funny bone.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe was getting a little too safe and dangerously repetitive. Guardians of the Galaxy gleefully breaks all the rules.

Hercules (2014)
Idiocy and excess is rarely this much fun - but Brett Ratner's Hercules is just the kind of macho madness that this comic book version of the myth requires when Dwayne Johnson is the chosen one.

Bless the Child is unsettling but it is never really terrifying. It's closer to a scary dream than a true nightmare.
