"Mockingjay Part 2" fails to satisfy as either a traditional sci-fi adventure blockbuster or an exploration of the dark side of war.
From a historical perspective, "Suffragette" is riddled with inaccuracies, but that's less of a problem than its questionable dramatic arc.
Neither as imaginative nor as satisfying a journey into the realms of the strange and supernatural as some of the director’s more memorable outings.
As a family-oriented adventure film, "Pan" is adequate, although the darkness of the material may make it unsuitable for younger children.
"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.
The musical sequences throb with energy and this allows "We Are Your Friends" to maintain its trajectory when its momentum flags.
As a superhero movie, it falls into the "adequate" range of the spectrum - neither memorable nor forgettable.
This is an appetizer and like most meager fare, it doesn't satisfy.
