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

Posted Sep 11, 2013
7.5/10 70% 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

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

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 92% 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 52% 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
4.5/10 65% The Heat (2013) " An uninspired formula comedy that wastes every iota of that talent on a movie genre that should have been retired at least five years ago. " — ComingSoon.net
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
Posted Jun 15, 2013
9/10 99% 20 Feet From Stardom (2013) " An amazing group of women with stories that need to be heard and seen to be believed. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jun 12, 2013
7.5/10 83% This Is the End (2013) " Enough laughs and entertainment value you have to give them more than a little credit for what they're able to pull off and get away with." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Jun 12, 2013

Posted May 31, 2013

8/10 88% The Angels' Share (2013) " Loach's best film since The Wind That Shakes the Barley." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 9, 2013
6/10 68% Trance (2013) " From any other director, Trance would be just fine, but coming from Danny Boyle after such a long gap, it's hard not to be disappointed by what is clearly weaker material." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Apr 3, 2013
6/10 7% Tomorrow You're Gone (2013) " The movie tries to achieve something we've seen done so much better in the past without the level of writing necessary to make it work. " — ComingSoon.net

Posted Apr 2, 2013

Posted Apr 2, 2013
4.5/10 8% The Host (2013) " It's painfully obvious Stephenie Meyer is a one-trick pony and a trick like Twilight you can only really pull off once." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 28, 2013
6.5/10 28% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) " Most of the high points involve its bigger action set pieces, but other parts just don't work as well because it never quite finds the right overall tone." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 22, 2013
5.5/10 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) " A better Die Hard movie than the most recent Die Hard, but it's hard to quantify its entertainment value due to how ridiculous the whole thing comes across." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 19, 2013
7/10 81% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " Not nearly as strong as Cianfrance's previous movie, but it comes across as an interesting dramatic storytelling experiment that ultimately pays off." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 15, 2013
7/10 55% I Give It a Year (2013) " Much like the original Death at a Funeral, it offers enough huge physically-driven laughs that it makes up for some of the lazier storytelling decisions. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 14, 2013
7/10 91% Good Vibrations " Has a couple of true revelatory moments, but the script could be better so that it didn't constantly have to rely on the music to drive the movie... and ultimately, save it." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 14, 2013
8/10 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) " A study of relationships between men and women and how attraction and chemistry can get in the way of keeping a friendship platonic." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 11, 2013
7.5/10 84% Upstream Color (2013) " Upstream Color is cinema as art and it's the type of art that can lead to lots of conversations, presumably intelligent philosophical ones." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 11, 2013
7.5/10 68% Love & Air Sex (2014) " Even with its share of tonal shifts, this is a fun follow-up to Lovers of Hate as Poyser shows he can work with a bigger budget and more ideas. " — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 11, 2013
8.5/10 81% Don Jon (2013) " A truly original character piece, hilariously funny and poignant, with enough humor and heart that more people will be able to relate to the characters than they'll care to admit." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 9, 2013
7/10 65% Spring Breakers (2013) " As edgy and in-your-face as Fight Club, Spring Breakers may be just as divisive." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 9, 2013
5/10 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) " Not particularly funny or clever, it often hits the lows of some of the worst Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell character comedies." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 8, 2013
8.5/10 65% Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey (2013) " If you're a fan of the band and want to learn more about its relatively new frontman, then the film is a must-see." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 6, 2013
8/10 38% Admission (2013) " It eventually elevates itself above its genre, which can be fully attributed to Paul Weitz's knack for this type of material and the brilliant pairing of Tina Fey with Paul Rudd." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 6, 2013
8/10 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) " The perfect blend of Frank L. Baum, Sam Raimi and Disney... and a movie that's as entertaining as the 1939 classic." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Mar 5, 2013
5.5/10 68% Stoker (2013) " There's only so much Mia Wasikowska navel-gazing anyone should be forced to bear." — ShockTillYouDrop.com
Posted Feb 27, 2013
8.5/10 90% A Place at the Table (2013) " Does a good job relaying the facts and why it's become so difficult to overcome the problems but also an incredibly emotional film." — ComingSoon.net
Posted Feb 26, 2013
