    While Draft Day is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely.

    Either I’m getting dumber or the “Transformers” sequels are getting more coherent.

    Despite the numerous patchy moments The Brass Teapot by and large squeaks by as an enjoyable entertainment.

    While there are some okay side stories (stuff with the daughters and daughters’ friends) it kinda feels like attending a dinner party and checking in on the first world problems of a friend you kinda like, but don’t like enough to ask any follow up questions.

    Go For Sisters is something of a frustration. It’s the least interesting crime caper ever, and there are fascinating characters forced to go through the motions as if any of us could possibly care.

    There’s just too much good stuff to dismiss White Bird in a Blizzard out of hand, even if it does have a somewhat dull and desultory plot.

    It has a nose for what's cool, but is completely inept at execution.

    Da Sweet Blood of Jesus isn't entirely successful – and certainly offers few new insights into the nature of addiction – but it remains a welcome change of pace.

    The end of the movie goes completely off the rails, but in a way that is charming in its stupidity.

    By the end of the movie few won’t be rolling their eyes or checking their watch, but there’s enough that’s fundamentally good in the meat of film not to wholly reject what The Giver is giving us.

    Put bluntly, Tim Story's film wears you down until you relent and say, yes, I like these people and it's fun to watch them all have such a good time.

    It’s a great story that lends itself to some striking scenes. Yet the film in total – if I may paraphrase Webb’s critics – has a number of holes.

    For family entertainment, you could do a lot worse.

    I’d be lying if I said this movie didn’t crack me up on more than a few occasions.

    Despite the desultory nature of the film, it is sure to hammer home some key points.
    • 52 Metascore

    Both Rogen and Franco, who have marvellous chemistry and exude good cheer, continue to tweak their personas in this very amusing, very imbecilic film.

    Certainly we care for Margaret and the way Walter has her trapped, but her character comes across as a cypher representing a great number of issues without being a real individual. This movie wants to be an oil painting, but ends up being more of a mass-produced, though good-quality print.

    Despite the uncomfortable sexism and altogether predictable nature of the film, I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t modestly entertaining.

    Clearly there is entertainment value in this documentary, but it’s very much of a “behind the music” calibre.

    No one in the film is particularly likeable, and while the global implications about epistemology are interesting, the specifics of this particular case, at least rendered here, are quite dull.

    What’s exciting about Brooklyn is the way it engages its ethnicity without succumbing to stereotypes.
    • 73 Metascore

    The on-stage moments of Entertainment are revelatory but, unfortunately, some of the in-between meat of the film doesn’t quite connect.
    • 62 Metascore

    It isn’t just the sheer density of jokes that is impressive, but the diversity.

    Johnson’s Ana squeezes believability out of one of the more silly romantic entanglements in recent popular culture. It’s all there in her face, which Taylor-Johnson frames in close-up. She’s fully aware this scenario is ridiculous, but can’t seem to turn away from its lunacy.

    There’s more to this movie than sweeping music and celebrating in slow motion. It all stems from Costner’s remarkable, taciturn performance as Coach White.

    The three leads draw you in. The pace gives these actors time to breathe, show nuance and make their characters human.

    Age of Adaline, which starts off looking like a frothy series of excuses to put Blake Lively in some fabulously timeless gowns, ends up an emotional and even bold chamber drama. Its ending is ludicrous, but also perfect, and I’d be lying if I didn’t get a little choked up.

    I can’t believe just how dumb Hot Pursuit is. Moreover I can’t believe just how much I laughed.
    • 67 Metascore

    This is detached, flat film-making at its most bare. You figure out which lines of dialogue deserve to be underlined.
    • 44 Metascore

    Perfect Sisters may stand accused of being rife with tone-deaf stylistic choices, but the more positive spin is to call it a marginal film elevated, however inadvertently, by the strange specificity of its scenes.
