    Sensational slanting notwithstanding, Whitney is as powerful and quintessential as it is overwhelming and grueling.

    The Forest is flawed on so many levels. It’s a tiresome bore, and the story is filtered through white characters when an Asian lead could have carried the movie just fine.

    A mention must be given to John Cena, who also appeared in “Trainwreck,” for his comedic talents. Here, he’s a stone-faced drug dealer with a supermarket of goods.

    Credit goes to smart casting of unknowns in the leads, who click uniformly; a packed script that manages not to feel overly long and social commentary that is timeless.

    Dope is funny, slick and sharp.

    The special effects and especially the 3-D are top-notch.

    The trailers for the Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara comedy Hot Pursuit hint at a movie that’s unfunny, insufferable and obvious. You can’t say you weren’t warned.

    This mess is guilty of being both racist and homophobic. And it’s as shamelessly lazy and crude as its title suggests.
    • 31 Metascore

    For the hour or so it’s on screen it’s a harmless, little chiller that doesn’t scare much but serves as a holdover until something truly scary comes along.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    It’s unashamedly of the B-movie variety — a quick and easy time-killer.

    Mbatha-Raw continues to be a true revelation in a role that could be not be any more different from her star turn in “Belle” this year.

    Directed by Stiles White, whose credits lean more heavily in the special-effect arenas, Ouija is bland, safe horror for those who like their scares nonexistent.
    • 40 Metascore

    This toothless attempt is just dead on arrival.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    It has a game cast, it’s watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin C. Johnson
    Not all of it makes sense, but for disaster movie fans, Into the Storm has enough destruction to go around.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    Cameos from actors portraying Little Richard, Mick Jagger, Frankie Avalon and Alan Leeds add up to some fun.

    Like the first movie The Purge: Anarchy, is trash masking as social commentary, and its depiction of unrelenting, sanctioned violence can be hard to stomach.
    • 38 Metascore

    Every character from the original is here, navigating the dating jungle, but this time there’s no pushing of Steve Harvey’s book.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    This send-up of current horror movies is a go-for-broke hoot, a hot mess of a comedy that doesn’t have a lick of sense. And knowing that going in adds to the often knee-slapping laughs.
    • 61 Metascore

    The flashbacks, which get almost as much screen time as the present day story, are far more compelling.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    The four leads are entirely engaging including the manic Hart.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    Count Black Nativity as a more noble than notable effort.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    A full plate of tear-jerking drama is served here. And it’s even tastier than the first time around.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 88 Kevin C. Johnson
    Long before the blood starts spilling, it’s clear the new team has mostly nailed it. The reboot is as good a Carrie remake as possible, though it’s not truly a scary movie; the film takes its time living up to its R rating.

    Targeted toward horror-film junkies looking for a terror throwback, You’re Next mixes gore and dark humor with yet another home invasion plot line.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Kevin C. Johnson
    The film is flat and lazy, and the audio mix is so low it sounds as if the audience is barely laughing. His cable comedy specials have better production values.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 63 Kevin C. Johnson
    Good but not-good-enough schlocker.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 88 Kevin C. Johnson
    It’s ultimately everything a modern horror movie should be.
    • 60 Metascore

    If you're a zombie purist or a fan of "The Walking Dead," Warm Bodies is not for you.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Kevin C. Johnson
    The finale is heavy on CGI. But it never takes away from this respectable entry into the horror genre that values chills over kills.
