JOHN WICK R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 38 moviegoers: 
The professional critic reviews are very mixed, just like these reviews.
TEENS:The 3 males all loved "John Wick."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Great reviews from the guys. Only one rated it as low as "average," with most loving it. Two of the three females loved it. The third female felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
ADULTS: This is where you see the mixed reviews. About a third of the males and half the females indicated that they loved "John wick." Another 20% of the males and about 10% of the females rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, a very high percentage felt it was only an "average" movie with about 10% indicating they hated this movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good overall for this violent action film, with the best marks coming from young adult males. Men in general will prefer over women, and younger viewers over older ones.

THE BEST OF ME PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 69 moviegoers: 
WOW! How can the, so-called, professional movie critics be so wrong? Their "average" and "poor" reviews are so much lower than the vast majority of moviegoers.
TEENS: Ok, this isn't a movie for teen males, but two did love it. Two more rated it "average." One didn't care for it. This IS a movie for teen females and nearly all of them loved "The Best of Me."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The two males loved it, Four of the eight females loved "The Best of Me." Two more enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average." The last two felt it was just an "average" movie.
ADULTS: ALL ten of the males loved "The Best of Me" even though this is clearly not a guys movie (so I guess it IS a guys movie). Nearly 80% of the females loved it with another 10% rating it "above average." A small percentage did rate it just "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target audience of older women, and on the whole reactions should be good. Older adults will enjoy more than younger ones, and females over males.

DRACULA UNTOLD PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 103 moviegoers: 
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, REALLY ENJOYED "DRACULA UNTOLD." A high percentage indicated they loved it with most of the rest rating it as an "Above average" movie, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. There were a few adult males that only rated it "average." I fit in this age group and I felt it was the best Dracula story I've seen. It is a different telling of the story than you probably expect so be sure to read all the information we provide before deciding if this might be a movie you would enjoy.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target action crowd of young adult males, and on the whole reactions should be fairly good. Males will definitely enjoy more than females, and scores will lower as ages go up.

Average critic rating:
Average (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Above Average (Roger Ebert)
