Latest 3 star movies

  • Ted 2

    Though crafted with a more mature hand, ‘Ted 2′ feels episodic rather than reinventive, and is ultimately just more of the same.

  • Jurassic World

    Jurassic World is a big, shiny, and entertaining roller coaster ride, though the ‘World’ is more interesting than the people.

  • Spy

    Spy is a very good showcase for Melissa McCarthy and another successful collaboration between her and director Paul Feig.

  • Insidious: Chapter 3

    A streamlined story and menacing villain make-up for Insidious: Chapter 3’s imperfections – an eerie, albeit forgettable, horror movie.

  • Pitch Perfect 2

    Pitch Perfect 2 will sate its target audience – though that audience may have trouble sharing the movie with casual comedy lovers.

  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron

    It misses the bar of classic movie greatness but Avengers: Age of Ultron is one of the most exciting and entertaining Marvel entries.

  • The Age of Adaline

    The Age of Adaline is a ludicrous romantic fantasy, but solid craftsmanship and good acting make it an enjoyable one too.

  • Furious 7

    Furious 7 is another solid Fast and the Furious installment – one that (flaws aside) provides a nice farewell to star Paul Walker.

    (89) by Sandy Schaefer
  • It Follows

    The film might not be as deep as it aspires to be, but It Follows is one retro horror movie that’s quite creepy and has style to spare.

  • Get Hard

    The combined power of Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell is enough to make ‘Get Hard’s raunchy and juvenile look at prison life a whole lot of depraved fun.

  • Insurgent

    Insurgent falls short of hitting the bar set by superior YA film adaptations but is a step in the right direction for the Divergent series.

  • Run All Night

    ‘Run All Night’ marks a slight uptick in the stock of ‘Liam Neeson With a Gun’ action movies.

  • Cinderella (2015)

    Cinderella plays it overly-safe in transitioning from cartoon-to-live-action but is sure to entertain Disney’s go-to juice box crowd.

  • Chappie

    Chappie succeeds in Blomkamp’s principle goal: exploring a heightened version of childhood development told through the lens of gritty science-fiction and gangster stereotypes.

  • Focus

    Despite its ‘never lose focus’ catchphrase, unnecessary tangents and underwhelming reveals make Focus a somewhat unfocused, though still enjoyable, viewing experience.

    (11) by Ben Kendrick
  • The Duff

    The Duff makes timely points about self-love, body image, and modern relationships but falls short of becoming a teen drama classic.

    (9) by Ben Kendrick
  • McFarland, USA

    McFarland, USA is by-the-numbers underdogs sport fare, but good direction and performances make it a respectable addition to the genre.

  • Hot Tub Time Machine 2

    ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ is basically a sillier version of an already silly concept – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still fun.

  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

    ‘The SpongeBob Movie’ is essentially a kid-friendly stoner comedy, but also one that’s clever and inspired enough to keep SpongeBob fans entertained.

  • A Most Violent Year

    A Most Violent Year is not the next great mob movie it’s been advertised as; it’s a thoughtful character drama with a solid cast – no more, no less.
