What we know

J-Lo plays an unhappy divorcée who falls for her young neighbour. Big mistake.

What the critics say

  • “The cheese is thick and it smothers everything in “The Boy Next Door,” but it’s never quite gooey or spicy enough.” –
  • “For its budget, “The Boy Next Door” looks decently polished” – Variety
  • “…it offers January moviegoers some guilty-pleasure thrills and laughs, while falling way short of its potential on both the dramatic and the camp fronts.” - Hollywood Reporter

What’s it rated?

It Follows

What we know

Scary flick about a teen who has a bizarre experience and is left feeling like she’s being followed.

What the critics say

  • “…an expressionistic teen horror movie that’s like nothing else.” - IndieWire
  • “It’s altogether smart, subtextually fascinating, and more or less a contemporary horror fan’s dream come true.” - Telegraph
  • “It Follows relies a bit too heavily on a wobbly venereal-disease allegory.” - Variety

What we know

Will Smith plays a con man called Nicky who tries to pass on his skills to femme fatale Jess (Wolf on Wall Street’s Margot Robbie).

What the critics say

  • “…surprisingly terrific little crime caper” - Forbes
  • “The problem is the story lacks so much focus leading up to the finale that when the twist comes, we don’t care because we’ve already lost interest.” – Charleston City Paper
