Poster for Zoolander 2

Zoolander 2

5

Aims to be bigger and crazier than its predecessor, but amounts to a serviceable (though less memorable) comedy sequel.

Poster for The Finest Hours

The Finest Hours

A respectful dramatization of the real-life events that inspired it, but is too by the numbers to leave a strong impression.

Poster for Ride Along 2

Ride Along 2

An uninspired retread of its predecessor, but manages to reach the (low) bar set for this action/comedy franchise.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

5

Has elements of a lean and efficient action/thriller, but is bloated and overblown thanks to Michael Bay’s directorial approach.

A formulaic Will Ferrell comedy, but enough jokes hit their mark to make it a passable one.

The Big Short

7

Has its flaws, but is one of the more unique movies based on non-fiction literature in recent memory.

2015.12.23

2015

Poster for Sisters

Sisters

6

An uneven mix of raunchy farce and sincerity that’s elevated by the undeniable chemistry between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

2015.12.18

2015

Poster for Macbeth

Macbeth

6

An effectively grim and well-acted Shakespeare adaptation, but prioritizes style over substance.

2015.12.11

Provides enough kitschy fun for those craving a darker holiday yarn.

A well-crafted and thoughtful investigative journalism docudrama that is buoyed by great performances.

Poster for The Peanuts Movie

The Peanuts Movie

Poster for Burnt

Burnt

Poster for Jem and the Holograms

Jem and the Holograms

4

What good intentions Jem and the Holograms has are weighed down by its cheap aesthetic and thinly-drawn storyline.

Poster for Goosebumps

A fun, if frantic, scary adventure for kids that even captures the spirit of R.L. Stine’s original books.

Falls short at being either an imaginative origin story for Peter Pan and/or a satisfying standalone big-budget fantasy adventure.

An engaging and well-made biopic with solid performances, but fails at being an insightful and thematically rich work of cinema.
