Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 65%
Critic Consensus: “Grim, bloody, and utterly flawed, Lawless doesn’t quite achieve the epic status it strains for, but it’s too beautifully filmed and powerfully acted to dismiss”

RT Freshness: 32%
Critic Consensus: “It may be based on a true story, but that doesn’t excuse the way The Possession repeatedly falls back on hoary ghost movie clichés — or the uninentional laughs it provides”

RT Freshness: 40%
Critic Consensus: “Although it may serve as a passing diversion for very young viewers, The Oogieloves fails to offer much more than several brightly colored examples of the worst stereotypes of modern children’s entertainment”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
