These are also now placed in the "Opinion" section for each movie listed.

Just Released: Aug 15
THE EXPENDABLES 3 PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 56 moviegoers: 
WOW! I can't recall seeing "Professional" critic reviews that varied as much as these did. Two "Goods," a "Poor" and a "Terrible," show just how useless critic reviews can often be. Which critic are you supposed to believe? Moviegoers sided more with the "Good" critic reviews because most of them enjoyed "The Expendables 3" very much, with a large percentage indicating they loved it. Only 10% of the adult females and 20% of the adult males rated it as low as "good/average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed but didn't feel it was anything special or memorable. And equally important, especially considering the very low critic reviews, no moviegoer disliked "The Expendables 3."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target male action crowd, and on the whole reactions will be good. Men in general will prefer over women, and younger adults will prefer over older ones.

Average critic rating:
Good (Roger Ebert)
Poor (USA Today)
Good (Entertainment Weekly)
Terrible (NY Post)

THE GIVER PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 61 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: All enjoyed "The Giver, very much.
TEENS: Two males loved it and one rated it "average." GREAT REVIEWS FROM THE 19 FEMALES! Nearly all of them LOVED "THE GIVER."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Three males loved it and one rated it "average." Both the females loved it.
ADULTS: The adult reviews aren't great, but they also aren't bad. About 40% of the males loved it with close to 20% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, just over 40% felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
Just over 20% of the females loved it with another 40% indicating it was an "above average" movie. Just like the males, around 40% rated it as just an "average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be fairly good for this science fiction drama. The readership target of teens will probably enjoy most of all though older adults may also appreciate. Males and females will enjoy about equally.
