Just Released: Jan 6
A MONSTER CALLS PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 23 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: Apparently parents understood that this isn't actually a children's movie since no child reviews were collected.
TEENS: Three of the four males loved it with the fourth male indicating he felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Both the females loved "A Monster Calls."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone female in this group loved it.
ADULTS: Three of the six males loved "A Monster Calls." One enjoyed it very much, but didn't love it and the other two rated it "average." The ladies enjoyed it more than the guys. Nine out of ten indicated that they loved it.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, and on the whole reactions will be fairly good. Males and females will enjoy about equally.

Average critic rating:
Very Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Good (Roger Ebert)
Very Good (USA Today)
Very Good (Rolling Stone)

HIDDEN FIGURES PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 175 moviegoers: 
GREAT MOVIE! GREAT REVIEWS! Rarely do you see nearly 100% of moviegoer reviews in the "Fantastic" and "Excellent" range. "Hidden Figures" is certainly a "MUST SEE MOVIE!" (Even the movie critics rated it high.)

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this historical drama from all demographics though older adults may enjoy more than younger ones and women over men.

Average critic rating:
Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Very Good (Roger Ebert)
Very Good (NY Post)
Very Good (Rolling Stone)

UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 19 moviegoers: 
TEENS: The one male and one female loved "Blood Wars." Unfortunately, teens won't fill out our review questionnaire reliably so we are rarely able to collect very many reviews from this age group.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One female felt it was an above average movie and rated it "very good." The other female rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: This older movie franchise seems to be holding up well with past fans (including my wife and myself). Six of the seven males loved "Blood Wars," with the seventh one rating it "average." The female reviews are nearly as high. Five loved it, two rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much, and one felt it was just an "average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target audience of young adults, and on the whole reactions will be fairly good. Males will probably enjoy more than females though only slightly, owing to the strong female lead.

Average critic rating:
Sorry, critics were not given an advance showing of this movie. You can use these links to see if they provided a review after the release date:
Berardinelli (Internet), Roger Ebert, USA Today, TV Guide, Newsday.
