Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
62% Draft Day (2014) " Draft Day is a film that knows how to tell a good, traditional story and tell it well." — Badass Digest
Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Marvel understands that throwing moral mud at Captain America is exactly what makes his red, white and blue costume all the brighter." — Badass Digest
Posted Mar 25, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " Outrageously ambitious and courageously complicated." — Badass Digest
Posted Mar 21, 2014
79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " All you have to do is buy the soundtrack and skip the movie and you can create your own great version of Muppets Most Wanted in your living room, just like gulag prisoners putting on a show. " — Badass Digest
Posted Mar 19, 2014
82% Teenage (2014) " What makes Teenage truly special is the way it tells its story through the voices of the young." — Badass Digest
Posted Mar 17, 2014
59% Non-Stop (2014) " NON-STOP is an extraordinary piece of cheese, a movie that elicits laughs (with the film), gasps and even some spontaneous applause." — Badass Digest
Posted Feb 27, 2014
49% RoboCop (2014) " A neutered movie that is constantly battling itself, ROBOCOP 2014 eventually reveals itself to be a hunk of junk, as inert as a robot cop when his plug is pulled. " — Badass Digest
Posted Feb 10, 2014
63% Nurse 3-D (2014) " It's truly sleazy, and it's ridiculous. It's the kind of bad movie that a certain type of discerning connoisseur longs to discover." — Badass Digest
Posted Feb 5, 2014
33% The Monuments Men (2014) " I wanted to love The Monuments Men, and I spent the running time hoping it was a slow starter, that it would finally come together into something sublime. It never did. " — Badass Digest
Posted Jan 29, 2014
50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " Walter Mitty isn't so much trying to tell a story or make us think about anything, it's trying to give us the feeling of diaphanous well-being we get from credit card commercials that feature smiling people in exotic locations." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 23, 2013
77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " Sometimes I think Martin Scorsese's biggest flaw is that he makes creating masterpieces look so damn easy." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 23, 2013
75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " I liked Anchorman 2. And maybe in a couple of viewings I can shake off the disappointment that, while pretty good, this is not even close to being as good as the first film." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 17, 2013
93% American Hustle (2013) " American Hustle is a relative of Goodfellas and Boogie Nights, although never quite as transcendently magical as those two films. Which just means it isn't one of the greatest movies ever made, so don't hold that against it." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 16, 2013
88% The Wind Rises (2014) " I wish these beautiful scenes and images were in the service of a story that I enjoyed watching be told." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 10, 2013
74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " Congratulations, Millenials - you have your own disappointing Prequel Trilogy." — Badass Digest
Posted Dec 9, 2013
42% Oldboy (2013) " Let's put it this way: five years from now when you're talking about Oldboy, nobody's going to say 'Which one?'" — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 26, 2013
38% Delivery Man (2013) " A lot like the sperm that sets its plot in motion: it's mostly white, moves with a viscous sluggishness and is made up largely of glucose. You also would rather not get it in your eyes." — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 21, 2013
89% Frozen (2013) " It straddles the classic and the current in a way that will delight Disney geeks of all stripes, and its wonderfully girl-powered story melted the heart of even a Disney cynic like me. " — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 18, 2013
75% Lone Survivor (2014) " Berg shoots their every wound - and they suffer dozens, because while it takes one or two bullets to kill an Afghani it takes ten just to slow an American down - with a loving attention that calls to mind Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ." — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 13, 2013
89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " CATCHING FIRE bests THE HUNGER GAMES in every way. If the trend continues this series will be a political science fiction epic that will endure for generations. " — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 12, 2013
65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " Thor: The Dark World is a movie that understands why we like these characters, how they work and how to best bounce them off each other. I'll forgive the overclocked pacing because the movie swept me so perfectly into a big, weird world." — Badass Digest
Posted Nov 2, 2013
49% Escape Plan (2013) " Escape Plan is entertaining enough to keep it from being 'bad,' but there's so little different or interesting or truly engaging that it's not very good either. " — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 18, 2013
93% All Is Lost (2013) " The sort of unique, uncompromising movie that immediately undercuts the 'They don't make em like they used to' complaints." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 18, 2013
97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " Steve McQueen's latest masterpiece is a shattering horror film." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 16, 2013
71% Zero Charisma (2013) " Zero Charisma is the nerd movie I've been hoping to see for years." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 10, 2013
36% Ghost Team One (2013) " An unyielding exercise in extreme pain." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 10, 2013
93% Captain Phillips (2013) " No other film I have seen this year has the sort of visceral gut-wrenching terror and deep, complex humanity that Greengrass brings to Captain Phillips. In a career littered with highlights, this is one of his best." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 9, 2013
97% Gravity (2013) " 90 minutes of sheer excitement and terror, a dizzyingly participatory experience." — Badass Digest
Posted Oct 3, 2013
82% Prisoners (2013) " A very good film, with two hours of extraordinary, gripping filmmaking and twenty final minutes of subtle deflation. " — Badass Digest
Posted Sep 19, 2013
99% The Wizard of Oz (1939) " The most magical movie ever is still magic in 3D IMAX." — Badass Digest
Posted Sep 19, 2013
89% Rush (2013) " An extraordinary true story makes for a smart, adult, thrilling movie." — Badass Digest
Posted Sep 18, 2013
58% Riddick (2013) " Riddick works. As a mid-range scifi action movie it's fun enough, if it never quite reaches the potential of that first act." — Badass Digest
Posted Sep 6, 2013
89% The World's End (2013) " Yes, The World's End is funny and fun, and yes it will make you want to go get blasted at a traditional pub. But, like all the best science fiction, it also has a lot to say about humanity and who we are and how we screw up." — Badass Digest
Posted Aug 23, 2013
74% You're Next (2013) " You're Next always keeps itself fun, always keeps itself moving and always gives the audience something to care about. What a weird gimmick: they made a movie that's actually just really good." — Badass Digest
Posted Aug 20, 2013
71% I Declare War (2013) " It's a loving, fun, extraordinarily well made celebration of the imagination and worldview of being 12. It's sweet but never sentimental. I loved it." — Badass Digest
Posted Aug 20, 2013
27% Jobs (2013) " Jobs ends up being a fairly honest, only mildly bombastic look at the life of a man who was very, very complicated - which is code for 'a complete a-hole.'" — Badass Digest
Posted Aug 15, 2013
29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " Kick-Ass 2 is passable, but is completely missing the spark that made the original work." — Badass Digest
Posted Aug 15, 2013
69% The Wolverine (2013) " It only took them six movies, but they finally got Wolverine right. " — Badass Digest
Posted Jul 26, 2013
40% Only God Forgives (2013) " A hypnotic, terrifying plunge into neon hell." — Badass Digest
Posted Jul 16, 2013
72% Pacific Rim (2013) " A movie about that is thrillingly, upliftingly about the best of humanity. And it also has giant mechs punching the s**t out of giant monsters. This is what blockbuster movies should be." — Badass Digest
Posted Jul 8, 2013
30% The Lone Ranger (2013) " I hate THE LONE RANGER as much as THE LONE RANGER hates The Lone Ranger." — Badass Digest
Posted Jul 1, 2013
51% White House Down (2013) " White House Down is the new standard-bearer for what summer action fluff should be." — Badass Digest
Posted Jun 27, 2013
83% This Is the End (2013) " The funniest movie of the year. " — Badass Digest
Posted Jun 12, 2013
56% Man of Steel (2013) " The best superhero action ever put to film" — Badass Digest
Posted Jun 10, 2013
76% The Kings of Summer (2013) " Kings of Summer is mostly very funny, which makes the bits where it gets serious hit all that much harder." — Badass Digest
Posted Jun 6, 2013
68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Justin Lin gives fans of this franchise what they want: greatcharacters being themselves and bouncing around in crazy, over the top action sequences. " — Badass Digest
Posted May 22, 2013
87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) " A totally stupid movie, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS falls apart as it goes, raining debris as it implodes like a building being demolished." — Badass Digest
Posted May 14, 2013
38% The Purge (2013) " Logic and drama are what get purged here." — Badass Digest
Posted May 7, 2013
78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " This isn't just the best Iron Man movie, it's a recharge to the whole shared universe concept. Marvel can make movies that exist together while still having unique, awesome identities of their own." — Badass Digest
Posted Apr 30, 2013
49% Pain & Gain (2013) " Instead of incoherent robot movies he doesn't even like, Michael Bay should have been making pitch black movies with the conscience of a sociopath all this time." — Badass Digest
