Angelina Jolie’s second as director is a gruelling and sadistic war film, without the necessary follow up.

Terrence Malick's latest looks ace. (Will hopefully rinse out the taste of TO THE WONDER.)
It is in competition at the Berlin Film Festival 2015.
99 HOMES ★★★★★
Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon team up and make amends respectively for dire offerings THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and MAN OF STEEL.

I don’t remember a triceratops, or Sir Lancelot, being exhibited at the British Museum.
My review of NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB - http://www.filmaluation.com/night-at-the-museum-secret-of-the-tomb.html
DIVERGENT is one of the worst films of 2014. Will its sequel be just as shoddy?
EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS ★★☆☆☆
Ridley Scott sleepwalks through a fast paced epic. It needed to slow down for introspection/nuance/originality.

How can a film live up to such a title?

The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
