Ghostbusters (2016)

Rated PG13 (for supernatural action and some crude humour). From the moment the first trailer was released for the new Ghostbusters reboot, the film was facing an uphill battle.  Quickly becoming one of the most down-voted videos on YouTube, it was surprising how great the vitriol was from the internet, claiming that the four female leads were an…

Finding Dory (2016)

Rated PG. In 2003, Pixar released its fifth animated feature. A little movie called Finding Nemo.

The Final Girls (2015)

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is a CIA agent whose marks were off the charts during her training as a cadet. Now, due to a…
