8% Mother's Day (2016) ""Mother's Day" doesn't go for the cheap laughs right out of the gate. Instead, we are given the opportunity to get to know the characters. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 29, 2016
77% Keanu (2016) "I'm loathe to report the movie doesn't stand up to their past work --- obviously it's much harder to be funny for 90 minutes than thirty. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 29, 2016
16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "It's a shame they couldn't find a better looking actor than Hemsworth to play the hunky huntsman. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 22, 2016
32% Criminal (2016) "The last straw has Costner's character simulating Pope's sign of love for Jill by tapping the end of his nose. A better gesture would have been Jerico holding each side of his nostrils with thumb and forefinger. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 15, 2016
94% The Jungle Book (2016) "Favreau has masterminded a film destined to be a classic, something moviegoers will clamor to see again and again. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 15, 2016
71% Miles Ahead (2016) "Cheadle turns in his finest performance since his Oscar-nominated role in "Hotel Rwanda" " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 8, 2016
19% The Boss (2016) "Physical humor is where McCarthy sparkles, but there is not enough in this movie to satisfy. I would like to see a Melissa McCarthy film with more sight gags and less spewing of profanity and bathroom-related references. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Apr 8, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) ""Midnight Special" is a bleak, joyless film that's not for everyone, yet I give it kudos for originality. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 31, 2016
21% I Saw the Light (2016) "Despite its focus on a short period in the life of Hank Williams, we get to know the man, and, in the context of music history, we appreciate the huge talent he shared with the world, if only briefly. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 31, 2016
28% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "The film generates zero tension from what is implicitly marketed as a seismic battle of super heroes. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 27, 2016
28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) "Maybe the biggest winner will be the S.C Johnson Company --- look for a spike in Windex sales. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 23, 2016
12% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "Talk about an unnecessary money grab! " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 18, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "Just when things seem to settle down as Howard, Michelle and Emmett relax with a quiet board game, the movie morphs into a nerve-jangling suspense yarn in seconds flat. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 12, 2016
46% Knight of Cups (2016) "If anyone could bottle "Knight of Cups" into pill form for insomniacs, they would make a fortune. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 10, 2016
94% Eye In The Sky (2016) ""Eye in the Sky" is an important story that should stand the test of time because of its originality, execution and immediacy to current events. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 10, 2016
24% London Has Fallen (2016) "You can enjoy "London Has Fallen" as essentially a science fiction/action film. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 7, 2016
98% Zootopia (2016) "A movie you will tell your friends and family about. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Mar 5, 2016
54% Triple 9 (2016) "The movie cries out for a central figure, and Affleck's character should have been it. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 27, 2016
79% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Crowd-pleasing movies happen every once in a while, and though "Eddie the Eagle" isn't exactly "Rudy" --- the ultimate feel-good story --- it's worth a look. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 27, 2016
53% Risen (2016) "You may be a believer in Christ's Resurrection, a non-Christian, an atheist or an agnostic. Wherever you stand, as a moviegoer I'm confident you will find "Risen" to be highly entertaining. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 22, 2016
61% Race (2016) "A genuine crowd-pleaser with sympathetic heroes and a true villain. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 19, 2016
24% Zoolander 2 (2016) "Silly and stupid, but reasonably entertaining if you just sit back and accept it for what it is. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 11, 2016
42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "The filmmakers of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" were adamant about not creating a spoof, satire or anything that smacked of folly, and they have succeeded. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 9, 2016
85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "For such a star-studded cast, most of the Coen brothers' latest effort, "Hail, Caesar!", falls flat. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Feb 9, 2016
96% Son of Saul (2015) "It's a disturbing look at this dark period of man's inhumanity. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 30, 2016
63% The Finest Hours (2016) ""The Finest Hours", based on an actual event, should have been edge-of-the-seat suspenseful, but it is not. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 29, 2016
17% The 5th Wave (2016) "How many average end-of-the-world stories must we endure before someone comes up with a real zinger? " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 21, 2016
8% Norm of the North (2016) ""Norm of the North" clearly is not on a par with the many superb animated films of 2015, so anyone who takes their kids to this should attend with lowered expectations. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 15, 2016
75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "I have now seen Quentin Tarantino's epic "The Hateful Eight" twice, and enjoyed it even more the second time. Billed as his eighth film, it is also his best, and that includes the likes of "Inglourious Basterds", "Django Unchained" and "Pulp Fiction". " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 13, 2016
62% Concussion (2015) "If you're a devout pro football fan, you may not watch games quite the same way after viewing "Concussion". And if you're a casual fan, you should be justifiably angry at the cavalier attitude of the NFL towards this very serious problem. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 25, 2015
59% Sisters (2015) ""Sisters" is one of the laziest attempts at comedy in recent memory, and it is my leading candidate for worst film of the year. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 18, 2015
92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "Complete with the great John Williams score, dazzling special effects, lots of good humor -- and of course, the creatures, it's a real crowd pleaser. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 18, 2015
88% The Big Short (2015) "It may be a bit overdue, but it's still an important reminder of a sordid time in American financial annals that should never be repeated. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 11, 2015
70% The Danish Girl (2015) ""The Danish Girl" is spellbinding...it's a quiet film that allows its viewers to feel the raw emotions of people caught up in a personal perplexity that few of us would ever experience. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 11, 2015
29% The Letters (2015) "Ms. Stevenson is effective and credible in the role. And "The Letters" is worth viewing for people of all faiths. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 4, 2015
82% The Revenant (2015) ""The Revenant" should be seen for its exquisite scenery, its realistic portrayal of men living 200 years ago in an unforgiving environment, and for Leo. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 4, 2015
96% Spotlight (2015) "Its extraordinary cast keeps us riveted to the screen in an authentic portrayal of investigative journalism. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 29, 2015
76% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "Peter Sohn, a voice actor in previous Pixar efforts "Monster University" and "Ratatouille", has stepped way up as he writes and directs "The Good Dinosaur", his debut feature. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 29, 2015

Posted Nov 29, 2015
70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "Aside from one major surprise, at least to non-readers of the books, there is nothing else that breaks the tedium of sitting through two plus hours of this franchise that has worn out its welcome. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 20, 2015
97% Brooklyn (2015) ""Brooklyn" is intelligent, warm, funny and endearing. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 13, 2015
43% The 33 (2015) "As emotional as the rescue effort was, equally fascinating are the technical challenges that the crews had to overcome to bring the men to the Earth's surface. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 13, 2015
33% By The Sea (2015) "With its deliberate pace and a running time of two hours, moviegoers have a right to expect more of a payoff, and when it does come, it's neither surprising nor satisfying. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 13, 2015
87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "Any male out there who has ever had to make that dreaded phone call for a first date will appreciate Charlie's reluctance when he goes to the Little Red-Haired Girl's front door to return her pencil. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 6, 2015
64% Spectre (2015) "Despite some well-choreographed sequences --- the movie's opening in Mexico City is typically frenetic of Bond films, and the helicopter episode is harrowing --- Agent 007 needs to retire. There is nothing unique or original left to do with the franchise. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 6, 2015
73% Suffragette (2015) ""Suffragette" suffers from an overload of extreme close-ups and jittery hand-held camera sequences. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 30, 2015
34% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "With so many Americans apathetic about our own politics --- Donald Trump aside --- why would anyone care to watch a film about a Bolivian presidential contest, and one campaign guru pitted against another? " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 30, 2015

Posted Oct 24, 2015
91% Bridge of Spies (2015) ""Bridge of Spies" is another in a long line of films, based on actual events, where the outcome is either well known or easily predicted. Yet it still manages to hold us firmly in its grasp. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 16, 2015
85% Steve Jobs (2015) "At the heart of the movie is a mesmerizing, iconic performance by Michael Fassbender, certain to be Oscar-nominated. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
