3/5 18% Pixels (2015) "This movie is ridiculous, but in watching it, you realize that it's been a long time since a live-action summer movie had the nerve to be ridiculous. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3.5/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) "Trainwreck is not perfect, but it's perfect for Judd Apatow. He needed this movie, arguably more than the movie needed him. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 16, 2015
2/5 54% Minions (2015) "A group of benevolent, joyful creatures willingly dedicate their lives to serving the worst forms of life on the planet: that is a terrible concept for a comedy. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 9, 2015
3/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) "[Seth MacFarlane] has never let story get in the way of a good joke, or even a bad one. To the surprise of no one, Ted 2 has plenty of each. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 25, 2015
3.5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) "It's a two-run double in the corner from a studio that, until recently, had hit nothing but home runs. It's good, often great, but Pixar has shown us that they can do better. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 18, 2015
3/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "It may take its name from a 60-year-old section of Disney World, but this movie is as right here, right now as it gets. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 21, 2015
3/5 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "The movie's story structure is nearly identical to the first Pitch Perfect. If it's missing anything, it's the element of surprise. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 14, 2015
2.5/5 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Joss Whedon has said that he's walking away from the Marvel universe after this, and after seeing Ultron, it makes sense; from the looks of things, this movie killed him. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 30, 2015
2/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "As awkward love triangles go, this is second only to the 1989 film Chances Are, where Robert Downey Jr. discovers that in a past life, he was his girlfriend's father. (Gross.) " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 23, 2015
2/5 29% Get Hard (2015) "In a parallel world, there is a version of this movie that is just as offensive, but also funny and smart. It's a pity we will never see it. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 26, 2015
3.5/5 85% Cinderella (2015) "Cinderella practices what it preaches by having courage, being kind, and exceeding all expectations. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/5 13% The Lazarus Effect (2015) "The Lazarus Effect is a wag-the-dog film, where the filmmakers had a good idea of how to end the movie, but didn't put the required work into selling the setup. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 26, 2015
2.5/5 No Score Yet VANish (2015) "It doesn't rise above its influences, but with a 74-minute runtime, the thrills-per-minute ratio is surprisingly high. Watch it with a friend, and a ton of booze. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 25, 2015
1.5/5 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Jamie Dornan is going to get crushed for his performance here, but it's not all his fault. His character, as it's written, has the charm of a toaster. There's not much Dornan can do about that. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 12, 2015
1/5 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "Jupiter Ascending is only slightly less absurd than Moon Quake Lake, the fake movie within the recent remake of Annie. The difference is that Moon Quake Lake was trying to be ridiculous. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 5, 2015
3.5/5 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "It's not great by any means, but it is very entertaining, and as January releases go, it's a borderline gift to get a movie this enjoyable. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 15, 2015
3/5 73% American Sniper (2015) "Clint Eastwood is directing. Bradley Cooper is the lead. It's a movie about a decorated war hero, and the studio seems to be really high on it. Shouldn't it be, you know, better than this? " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2014
4/5 89% The Imitation Game (2014) "It's an exceptional piece of work, while serving as a commentary of how the fight for human rights is still very much in its infancy, and how far we still have to go. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2014
2.5/5 71% Into the Woods (2014) "We are now at the point where pop culture has passed Into the Woods by, stripped it for parts, and left it for dead. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2014
3/5 50% Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) "The film as a whole is still merely decent, but the bar has definitely been raised here. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 18, 2014
3/5 86% Top Five (2014) "It paints with a broad brush... but the journey is nonetheless entertaining, and at times wildly funny. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 11, 2014
2.5/5 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) "Since the penguins never had to carry a Madagascar movie, it was easier for them to steal one. Now they have their own movie, and who steals it? No one, as it turns out. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 26, 2014
2/5 35% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "Horrible Bosses 2 is similar to The Hangover Part II, where a group of guys goes through a harrowing life-or-death experience, only to choose to do it again, and make even worse decisions than they did the first time. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 25, 2014
4/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "Phase 1 of the Marvel Toons era is off to a very promising start. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3/5 71% Interstellar (2014) "With Interstellar, Christopher Nolan has fallen into a trap that has caught many before him: the pitfalls of autonomy. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 4, 2014
2.5/5 85% John Wick (2014) "It is blood, death, and noise. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 23, 2014
3/5 82% The Book of Life (2014) "Hopeless romantics will love this movie, while everyone else will learn about the benefits of being a hopeless romantic. Sounds like a win-win to us. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 16, 2014
2.5/5 62% Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014) "It's a pleasant distraction, nothing more. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com

4/5 88% Gone Girl (2014) "It's hard to imagine anyone else capturing the essence of Gone Girl quite like David Fincher does. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 4, 2014
3/5 29% Annabelle (2014) "Annabelle deserved a story of her own, not one stitched together from the carcasses of others. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 2, 2014
2.5/5 41% This Is Where I Leave You (2014) "Good for Shawn Levy for going outside of his comfort zone, but as much as he may dislike being typecast as a director, he should keep that 'mindless family movie' door open as long as he possibly can. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 18, 2014
2.5/5 68% God Help the Girl (2014) "If God Help the Girl were any more precious, Gollum would steal it. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com

Posted Jul 31, 2014
2.5/5 66% Lucy (2014) "How ironic that in a movie about striving for greater intelligence, the takeaway turns out to be that ignorance truly is bliss. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 24, 2014
2/5 17% Sex Tape (2014) "If there is anything good that comes from Sex Tape, it is the age-old lesson that you shouldn't make one, ever. Ever. No, really, ever. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2.5/5 44% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) "The rule for animated films should be that a good joke for adults is one that is both funny and can be explained to children. Here, we have a female airplane talking about her rack. John Lasseter, I expect more from you than that. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2/5 48% Earth to Echo (2014) "It's a movie that acknowledges cynicism, but shows a more hopeful path. It's hard to get too down on a movie like that, even a mediocre one. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 2, 2014
3/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) "It's entertaining and gorgeous, but disjointed, veering between wildly emotional scenes on both ends of the spectrum without much thought for how they should flow together. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 14, 2014
2/5 49% Maleficent (2014) "There is certainly another side of the Sleeping Beauty story to be told, but it looks as though the idea of Disney villains as the next franchise opportunity overtook all efforts to make a solid, stand-alone film. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 29, 2014
3/5 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) "It speaks to the importance of loving the game that you're playing, and that is never a bad thing, even when it takes an extra 20 minutes to say it. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 16, 2014
3/5 73% Neighbors (2014) "Everything about Neighbors screams bro... and then a funny thing happens: Rose Byrne comes along and wipes the floor with every man in the cast. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 8, 2014
3/5 61% Draft Day (2014) "Holy cow, is this movie safe. That it manages to still be entertaining is to its great credit. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com

4/5 78% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) "Hats off to the sequel that begins with poking fun at its inherent shortcomings - in a musical number, no less - then proceeds to surpass its predecessor in nearly every way. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2.5/5 40% Divergent (2014) "This movie could use some teeth, and it's surprising that they didn't use the ones that the book provided them. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 20, 2014
2/5 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) "You will learn virtually nothing from this movie, except that Eva Green has very nice breasts. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3.5/5 60% Non-Stop (2014) "The beats and twists may be familiar, but it's well executed, and director Jaume Collet-Serra wisely resists the urge to go turbo, as it were. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) "The acting performances elevate the material from 'predictable' to 'predictable but fun.' " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 20, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) "It's a LEGO movie for people who despise the very idea of a LEGO movie, which is pretty punk rock for a CGI movie made by one of the largest media conglomerates in the world. " ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
