Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 15%

Critic Consensus: “A Good Day to Die Hard is the weakest entry in a storied franchise, and not even Bruce Willis’ smirking demeanor can enliven a cliched, uninspired script”


Beautiful Creatures

Starring: Alden Ehreneich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, Thomas Mann

Directed by: Richard LaGravenese

Plot: A new girl arrives in small Southern town and falls for a local boy but has to try and push him away as she is nearing a supernatural change that will either put her on side of light magic or cause her to fall to dark magic.

RT Freshness: 47%

Critic Consensus: “Charming romantic leads and esteemed supporting cast aside, Beautiful Creatures is a plodding YA novel adaptation that feels watered down for the Twilight set”

Directed by: Lasse Hallstrom

Plot: A young woman on the run from the police winds up in a small, seaside town and starts a relationship with a widowed store owner.

RT Freshness: 13%
