8/10 75% Chinese Puzzle (2014) " A joyful conclusion to the underrated series and a true coup for Klepisch that he was able to end the series on such a high. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted May 13, 2014
8/10 92% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " A perfectly fine follow-up to X-Men: First Class and a nice way to offer some closure for Bryan Singer's earlier X-men movies. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted May 13, 2014
8/10 73% Godzilla (2014) " There's a lot to enjoy in this latest attempt to bring everyone's favorite giant lizard back to the screen. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted May 10, 2014
5.5/10 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " It's disappointing that it never feels like anyone involved with this sequel has learned anything about what didn't work in previous Spider-Man movies. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 29, 2014
6/10 19% Transcendence (2014) " Any momentum is swallowed up by its failed attempts at being smarter than everyone in the room, which isn't exactly a good way to keep an audience invested. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 16, 2014
8/10 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " A movie as entertaining as some of Woody Allen's classics but also one with its own personality. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 15, 2014
5/10 48% Rio 2 (2014) " Mostly uninspired and rarely even remotely entertaining, you'd be better off sticking with the original Rio... and by that, we mean the one in Brazil. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 9, 2014
7.5/10 66% The Railway Man (2014) " Shows off real filmmaking and storytelling skill on the part of Teplitzky and a different view of WWII than we've seen before. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 8, 2014
8.5/10 91% Mistaken for Strangers (2014) " You have to admit that Tom Berninger has captured something truly unique and unlike any other music documentary so far. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 25, 2014
8/10 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Gains huge points by working as a standalone movie set in the world of espionage and world politics, different enough from previous Marvel movies to be more accessible for non-comic fans than anything Marvel's done thus far. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 20, 2014
7/10 73% Neighbors (2014) " Neighbors succeeds at being more than your typical frat house movie, even if it's a strange mix of humor that might lose some along the way. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 10, 2014
8.5/10 88% Chef (2014) " Never relies solely on its tasty-looking food to win over the audience ... and yet, it's probably the best 'foodie' movie since Ratatouille. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 9, 2014
6/10 78% Veronica Mars (2014) " The movie is clearly more for the diehard fans and they likely will get more out of this experience than the mildly curious. " ‐ ComingSoon.net

7/10 42% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " An epic spectacle filled with fantastic visuals that ultimately works as a worthy follow-up. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 3, 2014
8.5/10 96% The Lunchbox (2014) " A very special film that transcends its origins; despite its simple premise, it's a story that could really only take place in Mumbai. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 25, 2014
7.5/10 65% Bad Words (2014) " Jason Bateman's delivery and his direction turn the movie into something more thoughtful and entertaining than it might have been going by the initial set-up. " ‐ ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 24, 2014
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

Posted Feb 3, 2014
6/10 34% 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 23% 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 44% 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

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
