Masquerading under the guise of an “inspirational story,” The Ringer hits a new low for Hollywood. Producers may have exploited their way into some (intentional, of course) controversy buzz, but don’t expect audiences to be fooled by this unfunny hoax of a comedy.

Although it might be unnecessarily complex in parts, Constantine still delivers a supernatural wallop, fueling a never-ending fascination with what lies beyond our world.

Even though it may lack a human touch here and there, The Polar Express is still a brilliant effort in CGI-animation and will certainly evoke the Christmas spirit in us all.
