    There are elements of a decent horror parable here, but Sinister 2 lacks the restrained direction and eery mythos of its predecessor.

  • Ricki and the Flash

    Ricki and the Flash is a half-baked comedy/drama, but the cast (including Meryl Streep’s aging rocker) makes it a charming one.

  • Pixels

    Despite a solid premise and talented supporting cast, Pixels is another shallow addition to Adam Sandler’s product line.

    Minions delivers just enough of what people love about the eponymous Despicable Me characters to please their fanbase – but not much else.

    ‘Tomorrowland’ is a fun adventure with big ideas and a lot of heart, but somehow winds up lacking in both.

    Those hoping for the next ‘Taken’ will be disappointed by the slow-burn character piece that is ‘The Gunman’.
