Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
8/10 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " Truly one of [Wes Anderson's] most inspired films, as much influenced by classic cinemas as it maintains his own sense of style and pace. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 6, 2014
5/10 47% The Pretty One (2014) " Plenty of moviegoers out there enjoy these sorts of films--usually at festivals--but I honestly have no idea what anyone else might get out of watching this. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 4, 2014
3/10 8% Cavemen (2014) " If I read this screenplay, I'd probably immediately ban Dean and Herschel from Hollywood." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 4, 2014
7.5/10 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " The results are thoroughly entertaining and anyone who has ever played with the blocks or the recent video games will find something to enjoy." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 3, 2014
6/10 33% Labor Day (2014) " Labor Day could have been a beautiful love story. It also could have been a tense thriller. Trying to be both makes it tonally tricky and not an easy movie to love." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 31, 2014
7/10 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " Sometimes comes off as uneven due to a semi-convoluted plot, but the cast brings their all to the material and eventually, it does win you over." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/10 0% Best Night Ever (2014) " These quote-unquote filmmakers have nothing to offer the world of comedy or film and I've given up trying to figure out why people keep giving them money. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 29, 2014
2/10 4% I, Frankenstein (2014) " I, Frankenstein isn't just a bad movie--it is an abysmally awful one. Someone in production should have realized it didn't work in the script phase and put a stop to it before it went this far. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 23, 2014
7.5/10 78% Big Bad Wolves (2014) " Two talented genre filmmakers to keep an eye on, especially if they're able to break away from far too familiar genre territory and try something even more different with their third movie." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 19, 2014
1.5/10 18% Devil's Due (2014) " We have to assume, even hope, that a movie this bad will finally wring the death knell for found footage horror... but sadly we'd probably be wrong." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 17, 2014
3/10 33% Freezer (2014) " No one involved with the making of this movie should be allowed to work again. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 16, 2014
8.5/10 82% Maidentrip (2014) " To create something so epic while also maintaining itself as a small and intimate film is something that's difficult to accomplish. Somehow Schlesinger is able to pull off that feat." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 16, 2014
5/10 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) " Not a terrible movie as much as a redundant one since we've already seen much of the source material and most of that does it better than this mostly ripped-off cliché fest." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 10, 2014
7.5/10 45% Raze (2014) " A genre film that literally pulls no punches that will thrill fans of Tarantino and Rodriguez's recent revenge movies-- true "grindhouse" through and through." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jan 7, 2014
5.5/10 56% The Best Offer (2014) " A beautiful film marred by a weak script that tries to dive headlong down the Hitchcock rabbit hole without offering any of the tension or suspense that might have made it a worthwhile journey." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 31, 2013
10/10 50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " An absolute joy of a film and a masterpiece in terms of storytelling, Ben Stiller has become a serious director who seems like he's capable of doing anything." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 24, 2013
6/10 29% Grudge Match (2013) " Isn't a terrible movie, it's just a lot of fluff that serves very little purpose beyond 100 minutes of forgettable entertainment." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 24, 2013
6.5/10 94% Her (2013) " Like all relationships, it's a complicated film that's hard to love but impossible to hate, and though it gets better once it overcomes its painfully dull first hour, it still feels uneven at best." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 22, 2013
8/10 75% Lone Survivor (2014) " A solid effort from director Peter Berg in turning Marcus Luttrell's story into a edge-of-your-seat military thriller that never feels over-the-top or sensationalistic." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 20, 2013
9/10 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " A brilliantly witty take on the world of the stock market that's on par with Scorsese classics like Goodfellas and Casino." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 17, 2013
7/10 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Enough quotable quips and laughs to enjoy the movie as a whole ... but when it goes off the rails and starts getting silly, it has a hard time recovering." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 17, 2013
9/10 80% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " A definite must-see for long-time Disney fans." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 10, 2013
9/10 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " A welcome return to form for Peter Jackson that should help remind everyone why they loved 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy so much." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 7, 2013
6/10 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) " Other than some decent performances from Bale and Harrelson, this feels like it could have been executed better. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 4, 2013
6.5/10 61% Hours (2013) " A solidly-directed thriller that could easily appeal to a wider audience than the arthouse crowd." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 2, 2013
7.5/10 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " One of the Coen Brothers' more enigmatic offerings ... gets major points for the authentic folk music and an unforgettable committed performance by Oscar Isaac." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Dec 2, 2013
7/10 42% Oldboy (2013) " A few minor changes and another strong, rounded performance by Josh Brolin helps Spike Lee's remake overcome some of the problems inherent in revisiting known source material." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 27, 2013
5/10 42% Homefront (2013) " Another dumb action movie with a couple of fun fight sequences, none of which make up for the weak cliché-filled story that tries too hard to be a serious drama." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 25, 2013
9/10 92% Philomena (2013) " Philomena is one of those movies that plasters a big smile on your face with its sense of warmth and the originality of its storytelling." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 21, 2013
8/10 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " Significantly better than the first movie ... leaving you breathlessly waiting for the next chapter." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 19, 2013
8/10 92% Nebraska (2013) " More in line with About Schmidt than Sideways, Alexander Payne's latest is a warm and witty look at the relationship between fathers and sons..." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 15, 2013
8.5/10 65% Thor: The Dark World (2013) " An entertaining blend of fantasy and science fiction ... it's not the perfect sequel but it gets pretty damn close." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Nov 5, 2013
7.5/10 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " Brutal and relentless, it's hard to recommend 12 Years a Slave whole-heartedly even though it's incredibly well directed and acted across the board. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Oct 15, 2013
8/10 93% Captain Phillips (2013) " Paul Greengrass has created another gripping thriller with clear intentions to create as realistic a portrayal of actual events as possible." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 27, 2013

Posted Sep 25, 2013
9/10 97% Gravity (2013) " Simply the most spectacular movie you'll see this year." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 24, 2013
6/10 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) " Will hold infinitely more interest for those already intrigued by Assange's activities than those trying to learn more about WikiLeaks and its origins." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 24, 2013
8.5/10 78% Metallica Through the Never (2013) " Those who dig what Metallica do will certainly appreciate what they and Antal have done to create a very different experience from other concert docs that have come out in recent years. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 24, 2013
8/10 96% Enough Said (2013) " Holofcener's best script to date and performances by Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini make it one of her most enjoyable films. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 18, 2013
7/10 63% The Sacrament (2014) " Enough solid dramatic moments that make it far more interesting than the typical "found footage" movie." — ShockTillYouDrop.com
Posted Sep 11, 2013
7.5/10 67% The Green Inferno " A fun and interesting twist on the travelogue sub-genre of horror ... far better than many horror movies with twice the budget." — ShockTillYouDrop.com
Posted Sep 11, 2013
8/10 82% Prisoners (2013) " Prisoners offers strong drama, suspense and intrigue within a crime thriller that constantly leaves you guessing where it's going." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 7, 2013
8.5/10 89% Rush (2013) " An awe-inspiring story filled with nail-biting, fast-paced racing scenes ... right up there with some of Ron Howard's best films." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Sep 7, 2013
6/10 42% Closed Circuit (2013) " Motors along at such a slow pace it hardly earns its moniker of 'thriller,' often keeping any real tension at an aggravating minimum." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Aug 26, 2013
8.5/10 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " Just a beautiful film and a real crowd pleaser." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Aug 21, 2013
5.5/10 74% You're Next (2013) " While the filmmakers clearly did their homework on how to make a scary gorefest, they fail to give us something that feels particularly new or different." — ShockTillYouDrop.com
Posted Aug 14, 2013
7/10 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " So faithful to the comics that whether you like the movie or not may already be determined by whether or not they're to your taste. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Aug 14, 2013
6.5/10 68% Elysium (2013) " Any attempt at heavy political commentary tends to get diluted by the film's desires to be accepted as a summer action movie." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Aug 8, 2013
8/10 47% We're The Millers (2013) " There isn't a ton of heavy thinking involved with the high concept premise but it works better than one might expect." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Aug 6, 2013
8/10 64% 2 Guns (2013) " A surprisingly fun action comedy that you can enjoy in the moment but also one that's likely to play just as well on repeat viewings." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jul 31, 2013
7.5/10 93% The Spectacular Now (2013) " You have to give Ponsoldt some credit for getting strong and naturalistic performances out of the entire cast." — ComingSoon.net
