8.8 55% Post Tenebras Lux (2013) " "'Post Tenebras Lux' works so well because - even at its most random - it always feels like more of a single portrait of a man in crisis than it does an impish bouquet of provocative incidents."" — Film.com
Posted Apr 29, 2013

3.5/10 68% Trance (2013) " An insufferable cross between "Inception" and the twisty heist noir of Jean-Pierre Melville, "Trance" is a shapelessly propulsive mess of pop psychology and poor drama." — Film.com

Posted Oct 8, 2012
3/5 31% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) " Resident Evil movies don't tell stories so much as they provide variations on a theme, and that theme is: a pubescent boy's wet dream recast as an antiseptic dub-step nightmare" — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Sep 14, 2012
2/5 70% The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate (2012) " A rare treat for anyone who's ever wondered what a martial arts epic might look like through the eyes of someone suffering from severe glaucoma." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Aug 29, 2012
4/5 77% Samsara (2012) " Profoundly gorgeous stuff that appeals more to the senses than it does to the intellect" — Boxoffice Magazine

Posted May 17, 2012
1/5 50% Free Samples (2013) " A deeply unpleasant micro-budget indie that has no clue how to extrapolate a single location into an entire feature, Free Samples is an ugly bit of work." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted May 1, 2012

Posted Mar 10, 2012
2/5 11% Gone (2012) " With a title that's even more generic than the film's aesthetic, Gone will struggle to draw audiences. By next weekend, it'll be...wait for it... Not there, anymore." — Boxoffice Magazine
Posted Feb 24, 2012
0/5 2% One for the Money (2012) " It's official: Katherine Heigl will not rest until every last person on Earth is a misogynist." — Boxoffice Magazine
