PERSECUTED PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 42 moviegoers: 
TEENS: Obviously this isn't a movie teens enjoyed very much. A review of "good/average" indicates a movie that's enjoyable but nothing special or memorable.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male only felt it was an "average" movie (see above description under Teens)
ADULTS: These are good reviews, but not quite great. About 35% loved "Persecuted." Another 40% rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Ten to fifteen-percent felt it was an "average" movie. Unfortunately, 10% rated it as a "fair" to "poor" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this thriller, with the best reactions coming from Christian audiences and older adults. Men will probably enjoy more than women.

SEX TAPE R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 29 moviegoers: 
TEENS: The one male rated it "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male rated it "poor." Three of the five females thought"Sex Tape" was an "above average" movie. Another one rated it just "average" and the last one felt it was "poor."
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are similar. About 20% loved "Sex Tape." Ten percent more thought it was an "above average" movie. Unfortunately, a very large 70%, or so, would only rate it "average," with MANY of these (especially females) rating it "poor," which is extremely low coming from moviegoers.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good on the whole, with the best reactions coming from the target audience of young adults. Men and women will enjoy about equally, and older adults will not enjoy as much.

THE PURGE: ANARCHY R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 34 moviegoers: 
Unfortunately, we weren't able to collect very many reviews since the younger audience for this movie isn't good about giving a review.
TEENS: The males mostly loved "The Purge: Anarchy." Just 15% rated it as low as "average." Only about 20% of the females loved it, with another, close to 40% rating it "above average." The remaining, nearly 50%, felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two males loved it as did two of the three females. The third female rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much.
ADULTS: Strangely enough, the females enjoyed it much more than the males. Two females loved it, three rated it "above average" and one rated it just "average." Only one male loved it. The remaining four only felt it was an "average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target audience of young adults, especially males, and on the whole reactions should be good. Men in general will prefer over females, and scores will lower as ages go up.
