AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 197 moviegoers: 
USE CAUTION when selecting this movie! It contains extreme language and dark/depressing subject matter. As these reviews indicate, this movie isn't for everyone.
TEENS:  The three females all felt it was just an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  The lone male loved it. The female reviews are very mixed. Just over half either loved it or enjoyed it very much. Most of the remaining half rated it "average," but a few rated it "poor."
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are almost identical. About 40% loved it and 25% rated it "above average." Most of the remaining 35% rated it "average," except for about 10% who rated it low to very low.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
While there will be some passionate fans, on the whole reactions will be middling to low for this very dark comedy. Women will likely enjoy more than men, and older adults over younger ones.

GRUDGE MATCH PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 56 moviegoers: 
TEENS:  Great reviews from both the males and females. There weren't but a few reviews but they clearly show that teens enjoyed "Grudge Match" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  The lone female loved it.
ADULTS: These are very good, but not quite great, reviews from both the males and females. Eighty-percent either loved "Grudge Match" or enjoyed it very much. Equally important is that no one gave a low review. The remaining twenty-percent felt it was an average movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be quite good for this film, especially with the target audience of men. Older viewers may enjoy more than younger ones.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 166 moviegoers: 
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED this latest Hobbit movie. Better than three-quarters rated it extremely high. There were a small percentage who weren't impressed. They only felt it was an average movie, which isn't a bad review but it is disappointing, especially considering the expectations for this movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be quite good for this fantasy adventure. Younger viewers will appreciate more than older ones, and men will definitely prefer over women.

Average critic rating:
Above Average (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Very Good (Roger Ebert)
Good (Washington Post)
Below Average (NY Post)
