Posted Mar 21, 2014
1/4 —— John Doe: Vigilante (2014) " This is supposed to be a thriller, by the way. It's more of a slog, not so much a whodunit as a whydunit-and by the end, it's: Who cares?" — RogerEbert.com

Posted Mar 18, 2014
25% Wicker Park (2004) " Wicker Park is one of those maddening movies in which the characters do incredibly stupid things simply for the sake of plot contrivance, and everyone's problems would be solved if they simply picked up their cell phones." — Associated Press
Posted Mar 18, 2014
3/4 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " Veronica herself is such a breath of fresh air as a strong female character: smart, secure, resourceful, loyal, funny and not the slightest bit chickish. " — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Mar 17, 2014

Posted Mar 14, 2014
1.5/4 64% Bad Words (2014) " Once we understand what's driving Guy, the revelation is airless: It feels like too little, too late. Now we're supposed to care about whether he has feelings?" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 14, 2014
2.5/4 93% Journey To The West (2014) " By turns daffy and dazzling, awkward and artful, "Journey to the West" takes an ancient tale and gives it contemporary flair." — RogerEbert.com

Posted Mar 5, 2014
1/4 19% HairBrained (2014) " "HairBrained" is painfully contrived and self-consciously quirky from the word go." — RogerEbert.com

Posted Feb 23, 2014
2/4 15% Endless Love (2014) " "Endless Love" isn't so much a remake of the 1981 Franco Zeffirelli film as it is an extended ad for the idyllic Abercrombie & Fitch lifestyle." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 14, 2014
51% Cherish (2002) " Cherish is one of those movies in which the soundtrack is better than the movie itself." — Associated Press

Posted Jan 31, 2014
1.5/4 22% Gimme Shelter (2014) " An after-school special blown up on the big screen, it stridently aims to inspire you. More likely, it'll make you cringe." — ChristyLemire.com
Posted Jan 27, 2014

Posted Jan 17, 2014
2/4 38% Life of a King (2014) " Solid performances-especially from star Cuba Gooding Jr.-elevate the film slightly above the familiar trappings of its genre." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jan 17, 2014
14% Dumbbells (2014) " Perhaps the best thing that can come out of "Dumbbells" is that it will provide hope to young filmmakers who have a real voice and vision: You too can get distribution." — RogerEbert.com

Posted Dec 19, 2013
1/4 25% Trap For Cinderella (2013) " The erotic thriller "Trap for Cinderella" is neither erotic nor thrilling, but rather reliant on cheap nudity and multiple mistaken-identity switcheroos in hopes of keeping us on edge." — RogerEbert.com

Posted Dec 8, 2013
1.5/4 18% Twice Born (2013) " Yes, it's all as clunky and tasteless as the description suggests, and the awkward casting doesn't improve this overlong drama." — RogerEbert.com

88% Shrek (2001) " After a 90-minute onslaught of in-jokes, here's the real punch line: Shrek strives to have a heart. Supposedly there's a message about beauty coming from within, but somehow it rings hollow." — Associated Press
Posted Nov 25, 2013
3/4 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " Director Francis Lawrence's film runs nearly two-and-a-half hours but it concludes so abruptly and tantalizingly, it leaves you wanting more. " — ChristyLemire.com

Posted Nov 20, 2013
3.5/4 92% Nebraska (2013) " Dern makes Woody as cantankerous as he is clueless, bobbing and weaving to avoid his inevitable mortality, but there's a purity about him that'll break your heart." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 15, 2013
1.5/4 11% Paris Countdown (2013) " That's a lot of stuff going on at once, all of which feels rather familiar but none of which the film ever truly gets right." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 8, 2013
2.5/4 28% Ass Backwards (2013) " As with any kind of episodic or sketch comedy, some gags land more effectively than others, although you'll likely find a line or a beat or an image that makes you laugh from start to finish." — RogerEbert.com
