Posted Jun 30, 2015
5/10 27% Terminator Genisys (2015) "A watered-down PG-13 updating of the franchise that surgically removes any of the franchise's edge (and heart). " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 30, 2015
6/10 45% Ted 2 (2015) "Often very funny and more consistent than the first. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 25, 2015
5/10 26% Burying the Ex (2015) "The cast is game but ultimately BURYING THE EX doesn't work as either a comedy or a horror flick. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 19, 2015
8/10 79% Ballers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "A very impressive star-showcase for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who gets to show real range beyond his big-screen heroics. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 17, 2015
9/10 81% Me & Earl & the Dying Girl (2015) "Deserves to be the sleeper hit of the year. A wonderful film. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 12, 2015
7/10 71% Jurassic World (2015) "Not the summer game-changer some were expecting but still a good, solid blockbuster. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 10, 2015
5/10 59% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Lin Shaye is great as always, but this franchise is starting to wear thin. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 5, 2015

Posted May 28, 2015
4/10 8% Survivor (2015) "A very run-of-the-mill B-grade actioner. A waste of Jovovich and Brosnan. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 25, 2015
6/10 33% Poltergeist (2015) "Doesn't hold a candle to the original, but as far as remakes go I've seen a whole lot worse. Energetic and never boring. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 22, 2015
3/10 18% Pound Of Flesh (2015) "Extremely low-rent actioner that's only for die hard JCVD fans. Even Van Damme seems bored, opting to keep his sunglasses on for almost the whole movie. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 15, 2015
10 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "An absolute action masterpiece. George Miller's made a true genre classic. As good as - maybe even better than - The Road Warrior. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted May 7, 2015
5/10 20% Skin Trade (2015) "Not a great showcase for Tony Jaa, but Dolph Lundgren makes Skin Trade worth watching for action fans. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 6, 2015
8/10 100% Penny Dreadful: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Maintains the momentum of season one and nicely sets the stage for a host of new baddies. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 1, 2015
8/10 52% Maggie (2015) "Arnold Schwarzenegger is remarkably good in this indie-flavored horror-drama, with the emphasis on the latter. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 29, 2015
8/10 76% Hyena (2015) "A pretty sensational and tough British crime drama. A real gem, and visually stunning to boot. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 29, 2015
6/10 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "A surprisingly effective fable. Blake Lively is excellent. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 23, 2015
7/10 62% The Water Diviner (2015) "Beautifully directed and entertaining, but the history is problematic. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 22, 2015
6% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) "Tragically unfunny. More of an excuse to promote the Wynn resort than a real movie. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 17, 2015
8/10 74% Alex of Venice (2015) "A terrific character piece. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Don Johnson are excellent. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 14, 2015
7/10 61% Unfriended (2015) "A clever spin on the found footage genre, and a tight little horror flick that's good for a solid scare or two. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 13, 2015
5/10 30% The Longest Ride (2015) "Better than average for a Nicholas Sparks adaptation, but still pretty two-dimensional with an utterly ridiculous ending. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 10, 2015

Posted Apr 7, 2015
9/10 81% Furious 7 (2015) "Trust me when I say absolutely nothing's been left out of Furious 7. A thrill ride from beginning to end. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 3, 2015
5/10 16% 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
Posted Mar 30, 2015
7/10 87% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter (2015) "An intriguing indie and certainly one-of-a-kind. The Coen Bros. likely would approve. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Mar 12, 2015
7/10 89% Turbo Kid (2015) "If this is your kind of thing Turbo Kid is a lot of fun and makes the perfect midnight movie or VOD rental for a party night with friends. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 9, 2015

Posted Feb 27, 2015
4/10 72% The DUFF (2015) "More in line with cheesy nineties teen movies like SHE'S ALL THAT than John Hughes or more sensitive, recent fare. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Feb 19, 2015
3/10 39% 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
Posted Feb 12, 2015
8/10 100% Better Call Saul: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "An incredibly promising start for what should be one of the rare spin-offs that work. The best since FRAISER? " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Feb 5, 2015
8/10 94% The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015) "It remains to be seen how the MPAA will react to THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL's frankness, but hopefully it won't be too restrictive as there's more value in this for younger people than in mainstream YA fare. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
