Holiday Movie Scorecard 2015


Point Break (2015)

Adjusted Score: 13.462%
Critics Consensus: Loaded with dazzling action but bereft of purpose, the Point Break remake will be remembered as the first film to make audiences pine for the simultaneous presences of Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey.
Synopsis: An undercover cop makes his way into a scene of bank-robbing extreme-sports atheletes in this remake of Kathryn Bigelow's Point... [More]
Directed By: Ericson Core

Adjusted Score: 16.794%
Critics Consensus: In some respects, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip is a marginal improvement over prior installments, although this in no way qualifies as a recommendation.
Synopsis: Through a series of misunderstandings, Alvin, Simon and Theodore come to believe that Dave is going to propose to his... [More]
Directed By: Walt Becker


Love the Coopers (2015)

Adjusted Score: 22.004%
Critics Consensus: Love the Coopers has a talented cast and a uniquely bittersweet blend of holiday cheer in its better moments, but they're all let down by a script content to settle for cloying smarm.
Synopsis: LOVE THE COOPERS follows the Cooper clan as four generations of extended family come together for their annual Christmas Eve... [More]
Directed By: Jessie Nelson

Adjusted Score: 30.839%
Critics Consensus: A re-imagining without the imagining, Victor Frankenstein plays at providing a fresh perspective on an oft-told tale, but ultimately offers little of interest that viewers haven't already seen in superior Frankenstein films.
Synopsis: James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein... [More]
Directed By: Paul McGuigan


The Letters (2015)

Adjusted Score: 27.543%
Critics Consensus: The Letters tries to honor Mother Teresa with an unstintingly positive portrayal of her life and works, but ends up smothering a fascinating real-life story under a bland hagiography.
Synopsis: MOTHER TERESA, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, is considered one of the greatest humanitarians of modern times. Her selfless... [More]
Directed By: William Riead


Daddy's Home (2015)

Adjusted Score: 35.046%
Critics Consensus: Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have proven comedic chemistry, but Daddy's Home suffers from a dearth of genuinely funny ideas - and lacks enough guts or imagination to explore the satirical possibilities of its premise.
Synopsis: An affable radio executive finds himself competing for the affections of his step-children following the unexpected reappearance of his wife's... [More]
Directed By: John Morris, Sean Anders


By The Sea (2015)

Adjusted Score: 40.464%
Critics Consensus: By the Sea may intrigue celebrity voyeurs or fans of a certain type of arthouse cinema, but for most viewers, its beauty won't be enough to offset its narrative inertia.
Synopsis: A married couple takes a vacation in France in the 1970s and find that their time in a sleepy seaside... [More]
Directed By: Angelina Jolie


My All American (2015)

Adjusted Score: 32.835%
Critics Consensus: My All American has a genuinely moving real-life story to tell, but writer-director Angelo Pizzo fumbles it into manipulative, melodramatic tearjerker territory.
Synopsis: From Angelo Pizzo, the writer of RUDY and HOOSIERS, comes MY ALL AMERICAN - the true story of one of... [More]
Directed By: Angelo Pizzo

Adjusted Score: 44.172%
Critics Consensus: Secret in Their Eyes wastes its incredible cast on a remake that fails to improve upon -- or even make a compelling case for its own existence in addition to -- the remarkable original.
Synopsis: A tight-knit team of rising investigators - Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their supervisor Claire (Nicole... [More]
Directed By: Billy Ray


The 33 (2015)

Adjusted Score: 53.339%
Critics Consensus: The 33 offers an appropriately inspirational account of real-life heroism, but its stirring story and solid performances are undermined by a flawed focus and an overreliance on formula.
Synopsis: The true story of the 2010 collapse of a Chilean mine and the rescue of the 33 miners who were... [More]

    Brooklyn is mediocre PBS at best. The third act? Walk out of the theater when those ground-markers, who grease the Tomato meter to increase hype, flag you as a non-believer in secular conversion ratio$.

      Well, whatever floats your boat, I guess. I didn’t think it was better than Spotlight, but I still liked it. I’m just gonna say that if Saoirse Ronan doesn’t at least get a mention somewhere (it doesn’t have to be the Academy), well, I’m gonna be disappointed, but I’m not gonna go apes**t about it either.

      Stallone should be nommed for Best Supporting Actor, though; same with Michael B. Jordan for Best Actor. Wouldn’t hurt to give Charlize Theron & Daisy Ridley credit, either, though I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t. But that’s for another comment.
