SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Opinions are collected opening weekend and will usually be online within a few days.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with the target audience of young adult males, but on the whole reactions will be fairly good though not great. Scores will lower as ages go up, and males in general will far prefer over females.

THE WALK PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 12 moviegoers: 
Unfortunately, "The Walk" didn't bring in much of an audience so we weren't able to collect very many reviews. Fortunately, the few reviews we collected clearly show that EVERYONE LOVED "THE WALK."

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this lighthearted, even whimsical fact-based film. Older adults may enjoy more than younger ones. Males and females will enjoy about equally.

SICARIO R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 4 moviegoers: 
Two of these four moviegoers were my wife and I. We only had a couple people show up at our showing of this movie and our other review collectors didn't do any better. No one in our area wanted to see this movie. They all went to see "The Martian."
The professional critics really enjoyed "Sicario" but my wife and I thought it was too dark and violent with no character development and no lightness at all. It wasn't a very entertaining movie for us and the other two moviegoers also rated it mediocre and both said they wouldn't recommend it.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be fairly good though not overly enthusiastic for this very dark and downbeat action drama. Older adults will probably appreciate more than younger ones. Men will prefer over women.

THE GREEN INFERNO R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Opinions are collected opening weekend and will usually be online within a few days.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best for the young adult male horror crowd, but overall reactions will be low for this extremely brutal cannibal thriller. Younger adults will be more favorable than older ones, and males over females.

CAPTIVE PG-13
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 32 moviegoers: 
TEENS: Of the two females, one loved "Captive" and one enjoyed it very much rating it "above average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: None
ADULTS: The male reviews are good but not great. About 10% loved it with another 70% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much, but didn't quite love. The females reviews are quite a bit higher. A full 50% loved "Captive." Another 40%, or so, enjoyed it very much. Only a relatively small percentage of both the males and females felt it was just an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this thriller, particularly with older adults. Women may enjoy more than men.

Average critic rating:

SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Opinions are collected opening weekend and will usually be online within a few days.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this romantic comedy, with the raunchy nature of the material prompting fairly even reactions between the genders. Younger adults will enjoy far more than older ones.
