Just Released: Aug 5
OCULUS R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 16 moviegoers: 
Unfortunately, we were only able to collect sixteen reviews.
TEENS:  The one teen male rated it "average." The four female reviews are mixed. Two rated it "above average," one "average" and one rated it "below average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  Only three females in this age group and they rated it "Excellent," "Very Good" and "Good."
ADULTS: There were only five females giving a review. Three loved "Oculus," one rated it "above average" and one rated it "average."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the young adult horror crowd, and on the whole reactions should be fairly good but not great. Men and women will enjoy about equally, and scores will lower as ages go up.

Average critic rating:
Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)

DIVERGENT PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 118 moviegoers: 
TEENS:  Over half the males and nearly all the females, LOVED "DIVERGENT." About 30% of the males only rated it "average," which is a bit disappointing, but certainly not bad.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  Of the males, 30% loved it and 70% rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. GREAT REVIEWS FROM THE LADIES! Three-quarters indicated they LOVED "DIVERGENT" and the remaining third rated it "above average."
ADULTS:  The female reviews are extremely high, similar to what they've been for the other age groups. This is obviously a MUST SEE MOVIE FOR THE LADIES! The male reviews are very good, but not quite great. About 70% loved it but the remaining 30% only felt it was an "average" movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this action adventure, especially with the target of young females. Females and males should enjoy about equally though, and older adults may not enjoy as much as younger ones.

GOD'S NOT DEAD PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 310 moviegoers: 
WOW! And WOW again. I don't recall ever seeing a movie receive so many "Fantastic" reviews. Christians tend to rate Christian movies high but this is to the extreme. "God's Not Dead" is obviously a MUST SEE MOVIE!

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good overall, given the audience it's being targeted toward. Older adults might enjoy over younger viewers, and men and women will enjoy about equally.

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:

NEED FOR SPEED PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 46 moviegoers: 
The critic reviews are wrong again. Mostly below average reviews for a movie that moviegoers enjoyed very much.
TEENS:  Great Reviews! Both the males and females loved "Need for Speed."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:  Almost great reviews from the males and females. Three-quarters either loved it or enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, a few only felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS:  About half the guys loved it. Another quarter enjoyed it very much. About 30% felt it was only an "average" movie. Four of the six females loved "Need for Speed." Another one rated it "above average," and one rated it just "average."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target of older teen and young adult males, and on the whole reactions should be fairly good. Scores will be better with males than females, and scores will lower as ages go up.

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