LIVE BY NIGHT R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 12 moviegoers: 
This movie certainly didn't bring in much of an audience. Fortunately, these twelve reviews show that 4 of the 5 males and 4 of the 6 females enjoyed "Live By Night" very much. The others felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, and on the whole reactions will be middling to fairly good. Men will enjoy more than women.

Average critic rating:
Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 29 moviegoers: 
This movie certainly wasn't as well liked by moviegoers as it was by the professional movie critics.
TEENS: The lone male loved it and did the lone female.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The male loved it and the female enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: These are certainly decent reviews, but not the great reviews given by the critics. About 20% of the males and females loved "Manchester by the Sea," with another50%, or so, indicating that they enjoyed it very much. Another 20% felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The remaining 10% actually disliked it which is unusually low.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be best with older adults, and on the whole the film will receive middling to mildly good marks. Men will prefer over women.

Average critic rating:
Very Good (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Excellent (Roger Ebert)

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 42 moviegoers: 
WOW! I haven't seen reviews this varied in a LONG TIME! This is a very strange movie and these reviews show it. The opening scene of obese ladies dancing completely naked is likely one of the reasons this movie received such a high percentage of mediocre to low reviews. Seeing this movie is a real gamble. If your taste in movies leans more towards the strange Arthouse movies that most professional movie critics enjoy then this may be just the movie for you.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be fairly good for this drama/thriller hybrid. Older adults may enjoy more than younger ones. Men and women will enjoy about equally.

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

BAD SANTA 2 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 crude comedy, with the target audience of young adult males giving the best marks. Men in general will enjoy best, and older adults will likely enjoy the least.

HACKSAW RIDGE R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 124 moviegoers: 
FANTASTIC REVIEWS! It's unusual to see such a very high percentage of "Fantastic" and "Excellent" reviews across all ages and both genders. This is truly a MUST SEE MOVIE!" Due to the intense and bloody war scenes, it's sometimes hard to watch but it's ceretainly worth the effort in the end. This is a movie that will move you.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be very good for this inspirational war movie. Older adults will likely enjoy more than younger ones, and males will definitely prefer over females.
