Posted May 16, 2015
1/4 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "It's actually, actively worse than you think it's going to be. " ‐
Posted May 9, 2015
2/4 51% 5 Flights Up (2015) "What begins as a sweetly sentimental story ends up being cloyingly melodramatic. " ‐
Posted May 8, 2015
2/4 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "More does not necessarily equal better; here, more is just ... meh. " ‐
Posted May 3, 2015

Posted May 1, 2015
4/4 92% Ex Machina (2015) "Ex Machina is the best movie I've seen all year. " ‐
Posted Apr 25, 2015
1.5/4 21% Little Boy (2015) "It's meant to be a tale of uplift for faith-based audiences, but instead wears viewers down with a heavy-handed narrative, an overbearing score and voiceover that spells out everything in cringe-inducing, folksy tones. " ‐
Posted Apr 24, 2015
3/4 61% Unfriended (2015) "If you can give yourself over to the idea of Unfriended,you'll find it's surprisingly engrossing and really quite clever. " ‐
Posted Apr 22, 2015
0/4 5% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) "Truly, there is not a single redeeming moment in director Andy Fickman's film. A general flatness and lethargy permeates these reheated proceedings. " ‐
Posted Apr 17, 2015
3/4 94% Monkey Kingdom (2015) "You're likely to laugh and learn in equal measure-and so will your little ones. " ‐
Posted Apr 17, 2015
2.5/4 30% The Longest Ride (2015) "The Longest Ride is pretty darn tolerable - and sometimes even enjoyable - not just for fans but also for regular people who are, you know, cynical. " ‐
Posted Apr 11, 2015
3/4 82% Dior and I (2015) ""Dior and I" intimately demonstrates the tricky balance between art and commerce, between perpetuating a mythology while attending to the bottom line, and doing it with the pressure of a ticking clock. " ‐
Posted Apr 10, 2015
3/4 93% Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) "While he doesn't really uncover much that's new in "Going Clear," the way he's collected and assembled testimonials, documents and archival footage creates a cumulative effect that's chilling. " ‐
Posted Apr 6, 2015
1.5/4 16% Last Knights (2015) ""Last Knights" is so thoroughly mediocre, so dully empty, that it's difficult to summon the enthusiasm to trash it. And yet, duty calls. " ‐
Posted Apr 3, 2015
2/4 65% Reaching for the Moon (2013) "It's hard not to admire the intentions of a movie that depicts two exceptional women living exactly the way they wanted, together, outside the expected societal norms of the time. But the tone of the film itself feels unfortunately conventional. " ‐
Posted Mar 31, 2015
1.5/4 45% Home (2015) "Heartwarming and harmless? Sure, why not. But it's also numbing in its simplicity and often rather annoying. " ‐
Posted Mar 29, 2015
3/4 83% While We're Young (2015) "The observant and mocking humor that makes the film's first two-thirds so breezy and enjoyable gives way to shattering realizations, but Baumbach ultimately tempers that instinct somewhat by exhibiting genuine sympathy for Stiller's character. " ‐
Posted Mar 27, 2015
3.5/4 96% It Follows (2015) "Mitchell's skills in crafting mood and building tension result in one of the most mesmerizing and suspenseful horror movies to come along in a long time. " ‐
Posted Mar 19, 2015
3/4 85% Cinderella (2015) "The colors - good lord. They're like nothing you could experience in the real world. Cinderella's behemoth of a ball gown alone is 50 shades of blue. " ‐
Posted Mar 15, 2015
2.5/4 93% The Wrecking Crew (2015) "It'll make you listen to "Good Vibrations," a song you've heard a million times, with fresh ears. " ‐
Posted Mar 13, 2015
1.5/4 31% Chappie (2015) "While the visual effects are spectacularly seamless, they're in the service of a movie which devolves from vaguely funny to just-plain silly to numbingly gory. " ‐
Posted Mar 10, 2015
1.5/4 62% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) "Madden's movie is crammed with so many characters that we never spend enough quality time with any of them for their stories to resonate. While the many attempts at poignancy feel forced and false, the effort as a whole feels like it will never end. " ‐
Posted Mar 5, 2015
3/4 56% Focus (2015) "Co-stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie remain consistently charismatic, even once the script for this heist caper collapses in a punishing pile of its own twists and double-crosses. " ‐
Posted Feb 26, 2015
3/4 71% The DUFF (2015) "Whitman displays flawless comic timing and consistently makes inspiring choices in terms of delivery, reaction, even the slightest facial expression. She shines confidently in a self-deprecating role, and it's irresistible. " ‐
Posted Feb 20, 2015
3/4 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "It realizes this story is ridiculous in ways the book itself never could. It has an actual sense of humor. " ‐
Posted Feb 15, 2015
1.5/4 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "A lot of people spent a lot of time and a lot of money making a lot of movie, but there's not much there. " ‐
Posted Feb 10, 2015
2/4 28% Love, Rosie (2015) ""Love, Rosie" is one of those annoying movies in which everything would be just fine if the two central characters had a simple conversation that cleared up all their misunderstandings. " ‐
Posted Feb 6, 2015
2.5/4 78% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) ""The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" remains true to the surrealism of its animated television roots. But it also tries to force a live-action element which isn't as comfortable a fit as a certain pair of symmetrical trousers. " ‐
Posted Feb 6, 2015
3/4 69% Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of (2015) "Show 'Em What You're Made Of is the title of a song on their new album, but you also get a sense that they feel liberated in finally showing the world what they're made of through this film. " ‐
Posted Jan 31, 2015
1.5/4 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "The cheese is thick and it smothers everything in "The Boy Next Door," but it's never quite gooey or spicy enough. " ‐
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2.5/4 52% The Humbling (2015) "Pacino gives a refreshingly quiet and understated performance with poignant moments of vulnerability. It is the most consistent factor in a film that is frustratingly inconsistent. " ‐
Posted Jan 23, 2015
1.5/4 34% Blackhat (2015) "Let's start with the fact that Hemsworth stars as the world's most brilliant hacker. Let that sink in for a moment. " ‐
Posted Jan 17, 2015
2/4 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "If you're at the multiplex in the middle of the afternoon, and "The Wedding Ringer" is the only movie playing at a time that's convenient, you won't be completely miserable. This is not exactly a ringing endorsement, I realize. " ‐
Posted Jan 16, 2015
3/4 98% Paddington (2015) "It manages to be both old-fashioned and high-tech. It remains faithful to the character's roots while also placing him firmly within a contemporary setting. It's charmingly funny and shamelessly punny. " ‐
Posted Jan 16, 2015
1.5/4 51% The Interview (2014) "This is what all the fuss was about? " ‐
Posted Dec 26, 2014
2.5/4 97% Two Days, One Night (2014) "Even when "Two Days, One Night" drags a bit, Cotillard's performance remains compelling. " ‐
Posted Dec 24, 2014
84% In Bruges (2008) "In Bruges is a wildly imperfect feature debut, but it does make you curious to see what else McDonagh has to offer. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 14, 2014
1.5/4 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "A numbing and soulless spectacle of 3-D, computer-generated imagery run amok, Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" presents an enduring tale by pummeling us over the head with it. " ‐
Posted Dec 11, 2014
2.5/4 88% Still Alice (2015) "With a combination of power and grace, Julianne Moore elevates "Still Alice" above its made-for-cable-television trappings, and delivers one of the more memorable performances of her career. " ‐
Posted Dec 5, 2014
3/4 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) "The pacing is so zany, the jokes are so rapid-fire and the sight gags are so inspired that it's impossible not to get caught up in the infectious energy of it all. " ‐
Posted Nov 26, 2014
2/4 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "It's an elaborate game of hurry-up-and-wait. And it's the most shameless example yet of splitting the final book in a hugely popular series into two film adaptations. " ‐
Posted Nov 23, 2014
0/4 0% Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas (2014) "It is The Room of Christmas movies. Actually, The Room is more enjoyable. But you get the idea. " ‐
Posted Nov 21, 2014
3.5/4 100% The King and the Mockingbird (2014) "What a tortured path "The King and the Mockingbird" has taken to reach theaters in the United States, and what a treat it is for us to be able to experience it now. " ‐
Posted Nov 21, 2014
2/4 71% Interstellar (2014) " It's a film I didn't exactly enjoy and can't say I would recommend. And yet as an event, as a singular movie-watching opportunity, it's undoubtedly worthwhile. " ‐
Posted Nov 16, 2014
2.5/4 80% The Theory of Everything (2014) "A strongly acted, handsomely crafted film that nonetheless feels bland and unsatisfying. " ‐
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/4 88% Actress (2014) "Even calling "Actress" a documentary doesn't feel entirely accurate. " ‐
Posted Nov 7, 2014
3/4 95% Nightcrawler (2014) "Crashes and crime scenes are his bread and butter. He is driven. He is innovative. He is happy. He is also a monster - a fiend who preys on people at their weakest and worst moments. " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2014
2/4 41% Horns (2014) "Radcliffe, through his sheer presence and the piercing honesty of those big, blue eyes, makes this mixed-up material watchable. " ‐
Posted Oct 31, 2014
4/4 92% Frost/Nixon (2008) "You never feel like you're watching a play on film: The way Morgan has opened up the proceedings in his screenplay feels organic under the direction of Ron Howard, who has crafted his finest film yet, and one of the year's best. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Oct 28, 2014
3/4 91% Dear White People (2014) "Writer-director Justin Simien takes a sledgehammer to the rosy notion that we've achieved a post-racial utopia - but he does it with great wit, bite and flair - in his debut feature, Dear White People. " ‐
Posted Oct 27, 2014
3/4 85% John Wick (2014) "While the body count grows numbing and repetitive, "John Wick" actually is more compelling in the aesthetically heightened, specifically detailed world it depicts. " ‐
