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)

WHY HIM? R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 8 moviegoers: 
Unfortunately, this movie wasn't well attended opening weekend so we were only able to collect 8 reviews. The two teen males loved it, as did the one female. The lone adult male indicated that he enjoyed it very much. Of the four females, one loved it, one rated it "above average" and two felt it was an average movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this comedy, especially with the target audience of young adults. Males and females will enjoy the film about equally though with a slight skew toward men.

GREAT REVIEWS! Approximately three-quarters of both the males and females LOVED "PATROIT'S DAY." All but a small percentage of the remaining quarter indicated that they enjoyed it very much rating it "above average."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this drama. Older adults will probably enjoy best. Males and females will enjoy about equally.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 132 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: Great reviews from the kids! Nearly everyone loved "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."
TEENS: GREAT REVIEWS from both the males and females. Only a few females rated it as low as "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Of the 8 males, 5 loved it and 3 rated it "above average," which indicates they enjoyed it very much. Same thing for the 8 females. Five loved it and 3 enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: Half the males loved it with another 25%, or so, rating it "above average." Close to 20% rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Close to 10% actually disliked it, which is unusual and surprising for this type of movie. As for the females, just over 60% loved it with another 15% enjoying it very much. Like the males, about 15% felt it was just an "average" movie with close to 10% actually disliking it.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this fantasy adventure. Kids may like the most but all demographics should rate highly. Males and females will enjoy equally.
