  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    Though viewers will find familiar story beats and characters in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Ritchie succeeds in creating a fun love-letter to 1960s spy fandom.

    (33) by Ben Kendrick
  • Paper Towns

    It’s not the most poignant or ground-breaking coming of age tale, but Paper Towns’ gentle nature and noble intentions make it a respectable one.

  • Mr. Holmes

    Mr. Holmes is a solid (if unremarkable) period drama that is anchored by a great Ian McKellen performance as an old Sherlock Holmes.

  • Trainwreck

    Trainwreck is an honest film that defies gender stereotypes; though, more often than not, it still adheres to familiar romantic comedy tropes.

  • Ant-Man

    Though being a formulaic Marvel superhero origin tale, Ant-Man gets a boost from a good ensemble cast and an overall tone of fun and creativity from director Peyton Reed.

  • Magic Mike XXL

    Magic Mike XXL may not be an insightful continuation of its predecessor, but it delivers an experience that many wanted the first time around.

  • 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.

    (108) by Sandy Schaefer
  • Spy

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

    (24) by Sandy Schaefer
  • 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.

    (364) by Ben Kendrick
  • 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.

    (90) 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.

    (64) by Sandy Schaefer
  • 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.

    (27) by Kofi Outlaw
  • 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.

    (31) by Ben Kendrick
  • 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.
