Posted Apr 23, 2015
7/10 59% The Water Diviner (2015) " Beautifully directed and entertaining, but the history is problematic. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Apr 3, 2015
5/10 17% Last Knights (2015) " A so-so riff on 47 Ronin that seems to have lost something in the post-production process. Clive Owen gives it his all. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 30, 2015
6/10 53% Woman in Gold (2015) " Much better than the buzz out of Berlin would suggest. Helen Mirren is excellent. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

3/10 35% Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2015) " A curio that will likely only appeal to Spike Lee's most devoted fans - or those that contributed to the Kickstarter campaign that financed it. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 17, 2015
9/10 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) " A gonzo-fun take-off on old-school super-spy yarns. Smashing! " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
