In Stereo (2015)
Closer To God (2015)
Magic Mike XXL (2015)
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
Terminator Genisys (2015)
Rebels of the Neon God (2015)
"Achieves much on a relatively meager budget (it has an impressive futuristic visual design), and the last half hour is so irresistibly creepy that it's sure to invoke discussion after the screening."
Batkid Begins (2015)
"A fascinating look at how a true event can become a media event - and how courting the media can have good and bad results so mixed up that it's hard to know where the good influence stops and the corrupting influence starts."
A Little Chaos (2015)
"We get ready for the sparks to fly, but the scenes between Winslet and Schoenaerts fall flat. In fact, we pay more attention to the beautiful costumes and art direction than to any exchange between the two romantic leads."
Gemma Bovery (2015)
Infinitely Polar Bear (2015)
Ted 2 (2015)
What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015)
The Wolfpack (2015)
"Shameik Moore is a forceful, sympathetic locus, with an appealing gentleness of spirit that in no way seems entirely innocent. There's a drive there. As for Zoe Kravitz, she is having one terrific year."
Inside Out (2015)
Love at First Fight (2015)
Heaven Knows What (2015)
Testament Of Youth (2015)
"Gomez-Rejon matches the wit of the script with gently witty touches, such as the clever use of a fishbowl lens. He also relies on his actors for long takes, which give the movie a lived-in, naturalistic feeling."
Live From New York! (2015)
Jurassic World (2015)
Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)
When Marnie Was There (2015)
"There's an absurdist edge, but with nothing of the smart aleck about it. Rather than use wit as a way of bypassing thought and emotion, Bujalski's concerns are serious and his attitude toward his characters is warm without being indulgent."
Love & Mercy (2015)
"Crowe introduces a serious topic without really examining it, and even the romance feels off, with a pair of lovers who seem mismatched. To complete the picture, Crowe tags on an ending that's convenient but not convincing."
Sunshine Superman (2015)
The Connection (2015)
"Riveting from its first moments, "The Connection" is fascinating in its presentation of character, as well as for its glimpse into the workings of an international drug empire and into the ways an imaginative cop found to chip at its power."
San Andreas (2015)
Slow West (2015)
About Elly (2015)
I'll See You in My Dreams (2015)
In the Name of My Daughter (2015)
"The characters' intense desires are framed within a sedate, workaday context, so that even though the characters' passions drive the action, director Andre Techine lends the film an appealing illusion of calm."
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
"Perhaps most of the humor just doesn't translate (the film was a smash hit in Sweden). Whatever the case, the script needed to mine more comedy from the characters, not the clownish plot machinations."
Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)
Hunting Elephants (2015)
Dark Star: HR Giger's World (2015)
Saint Laurent (2015)
