Call Me Lucky (2015)
Ricki And The Flash (2015)
Irrational Man (2015)
"Woody Allen generates films with such rapidity and inconsistency that you can never be certain if this season's offering will be a hit or a miss. I'm happy to report that Irrational Man is a delight."
Bikes vs Cars (2015)
Fort Tilden (2015)
Jimmy's Hall (2015)
"If you ever thought Footloose might've been improved with an Irish brogue and a short pour of agitprop, then by all means look to this latest from Ken Loach, Britain's elder statesman of cinema and its evergreen champion of the working class."
Paper Towns (2015)
"The Griswold elders (Chase and Beverly D'Angelo) show up toward the end for brief cameos, but like most everyone else in the film, they barely register. With any luck, Vacation will barely register, as well."
The Vatican Tapes (2015)
"Tangerine's greatest accomplishment, however, lies with director Baker, who filmed the movie using an iPhone 5S. It's an amazing achievement -- the fluidity of the camerawork is exhilarating at times, the intimacy of the close-ups sometimes unsettling."
Big Significant Things (2015)
"The problem is that when every anticipated "discovery" brings disappointment, set against the backdrop of the South's reductive popular music and overly used rural rubble, for some the palate begins to crave balance."
Gemma Bovery (2015)
Mr. Holmes (2015)
Cartel Land (2015)
The Tribe (2015)
"Just as you begin settling into these science-fiction parameters and start pondering the wisdom of humanity's vain quest for immortality, Self/less switches gears, much to its detriment, and becomes a frenzied chase thriller and shoot-'em-up."
Infinitely Polar Bear (2015)
"The gut-wrenching Amy is, in the end, as much an indictment of our celebrity-obsessed (global) pop culture as it is of the perils of rampant success arriving unexpectedly fast, tires squealing and driving a hearse."
The Gallows (2015)
Arlo and Julie (2015)
Magic Mike XXL (2015)
"While Manglehorn eschews the traditional third-act redemption you've seen ad nauseam in films that neatly wrap things up right before the end credits roll, it's nevertheless refreshingly optimistic about people's ability to change."
Terminator Genisys (2015)
"Chock-full of various sorts of Terminators, thuddingly dull explosions, and one of the most downright boring helicopter chases ever created for the movies, Terminator: Genisys is a catastrophic misfire on nearly all counts."
The Overnight (2015)
Ted 2 (2015)
Balls Out (2015)
"The glue that holds this madness together, however, is Lacy's performance as Caleb, the fifth-year college student uneasily about to embark on matrimony and attend law school, who sees intramural football as his last hurrah."
The Wolfpack (2015)
Inside Out (2015)
"Pixar really swings for the brass ring of seemingly unmarketable concepts with its latest, Inside Out, which throws a couple hundred million dollars at a movie about the life of the mind. Its audacity is entirely matched by its artistry."
Beyond The Mask (2015)
Good Kill (2015)
Sunshine Superman (2015)
"Sunshine Superman is at times a bit too reverent with the material, and there are distracting reenactments (à la The Jinx and Man on Wire), some of which seem extraneous, but overall, the film is a sun-kissed tribute to a singular individual."
Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)
Live From New York! (2015)
Jurassic World (2015)
"It's all in good fun, and critic-proof to boot, but Jurassic World doesn't even come close to that most intimate and dearly coveted "Gosh, wow" sense-of-wonder that the original film mustered so easily. Roar more, bite less."
I'll See You in My Dreams (2015)
"Danner's even better on her own, as she honestly, even angrily, wrangles with not a paradox, per se, just the raw rub of life: that it sucks to be alone, and it's scary to try not being alone. She's exquisite."
When Marnie Was There (2015)
