Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
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 55% 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 76% 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 79% 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 52% 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
7.5/10 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) " A worthy follow-up even if there's less creativity involved once the central premise is introduced." — ComingSoon.net
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 75% The Green Inferno (2014) " 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

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
Posted Jul 29, 2013
7.5/10 51% The To Do List (2013) " An incredibly catchy attempt at a retro sex comedy ... while it does go a bit overboard with the raunch at times, it offers enough solid laughs to make it worthwhile." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jul 25, 2013
6/10 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) " For a film that starts as a 'fish out of water' comedy, it's not that funny, instead feeling more disjointed and all over the place in terms of tone and even dull at times." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jul 22, 2013
7.5/10 89% The World's End (2013) " Maybe fashioning it as a trilogy with "Shaun" and "Hot Fuzz" wasn't a great idea since it leads to comparisons it can't possibly live up to being such a different movie." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jul 20, 2013
8.5/10 69% The Wolverine (2013) " The best comic book movie of the summer and one that rarely feels like a comic book movie." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jul 17, 2013

Posted Jul 11, 2013

Posted Jun 27, 2013
7/10 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " Whether or not you agree with the characters' motivations, it's far too easy to understand how the world we currently live in can lead to something like this happening. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jun 19, 2013
7/10 67% World War Z (2013) " Plays with scale in ways that allows it to feel like a big movie at times but it also has enough intimate moments to keep sight of the fact that it's a character piece." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jun 19, 2013
8/10 78% Monsters University (2013) " It's not Pixar's most innovative or clever movie by any means, but it ultimately delivers in terms of offering something to entertain everyone." — ComingSoon.net
