Just Released: Aug 7
FANTASTIC FOUR PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 50 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: All the kids loved "Fantastic 4."
TEENS: One male loved it and one didn't enjoy it. The female reviews aren't great. Only about 25% loved "Fantastic 4." Another 10% to 15% indicated that they enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, close to 40% felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Another 25% rated it "below average," which is not good.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: These are great reviews from both the males and females. They all either loved it or enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: These are mediocre reviews from both the males and females. They indicate an enjoyable movie but certainly not a great movie. It's unusual to see such a low percentage of high reviews. Fortunately, there aren't any very low reviews so chances are you would enjoy "Fantastic 4" but not love it.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with kids to younger adults, and on the whole reactions should be fairly good. Males will enjoy more than females, and scores will likely lower as ages go up.

Average critic rating:
Above Average (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Below Average (Roger Ebert)

THE GIFT R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 59 moviegoers: 
TEENS: Three males loved it, one enjoyed it very much but one hated it. Just over half the females loved "The Gift." Unfortunately, the remaining reviews are mediocre to low.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males loved it and one felt it was only an "average" movie. As for the females, three of the eight loved "The Gift." Two more enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining three felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but noting special or memorable).
ADULTS: Both the male and female reviews are very similar. About 40% loved "The Gift." Another 25% to 30% indicated that they enjoyed it very much rating it "above average." There is a fairly large percentage who felt it was only an "average" movie with an even smaller percentage who didn't enjoy it much at all.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this edgy thriller. Males will probably enjoy more than females though only slightly. Younger adults may enjoy more than older ones.

SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 18 moviegoers: 
Unfortunately, we weren't able to collect very many reviews but the few we collected clearly indicate that most everyone really enjoyed "Shaun the Sheep Movie." There were a few who felt it was only an "average" movie, but that's still pretty good for a movie you're mainly taking the kids to see.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this animated feature, with kids giving the best marks but strong ratings from all demographics. Reactions will be even between the genders.

Average critic rating:
Excellent (Roger Ebert)
Good (NY Post)
Very Good (Rolling Stone)
