B- 85% Trainwreck (2015) "Schumer is a fresh, bold new voice in comedy, and while this film doesn't fully reflect that, it's a reasonably mirthful foundation to build on. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jul 16, 2015
D 14% The Gallows (2015) "This is a bad movie, and the people who made it should feel bad. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jul 9, 2015
C+ 21% Self/less (2015) "A nicely made, supremely average movie: not bad enough to avoid, but not good enough to seek out on purpose. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jul 9, 2015
C 46% Ted 2 (2015) "Get it? The teddy bear says swear words! " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jul 3, 2015
B- 89% Dope (2015) "Feels a lot like someone's first movie, even though it's Famuyiwa's fourth.... But it mostly hangs together pretty well. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jul 1, 2015
C 64% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "Alternates between pandering to its target audience of straight women, and just boring them. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 30, 2015
B+ 98% Inside Out (2015) "A conceptual near-masterpiece ... except for the big chunk in the middle where it isn't. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 19, 2015
B 86% Heaven Knows What (2015) "The whole cast feels authentic, and the Safdies wisely avoid melodrama, keeping a grip on grimy reality that keeps a grip on us. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 12, 2015
C 60% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Get some fresh ideas or let this series die. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 12, 2015
D+ 32% Entourage (2015) "If it's just fan service, meant to give the show's viewers another 104 minutes with their beloved crew, well, I guess it's good at that. But it's bad at being a movie. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 3, 2015
B 50% San Andreas (2015) "Visually well-executed, shiny and seat-rattling, and completely useless otherwise. It does the one thing it set out to do, though, and so here we are. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Jun 2, 2015
B- 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Though the film has some wonderful things in it, it's not full of wonder like it ought to be. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted May 22, 2015
C 33% Poltergeist (2015) "Has the same form as the original, but none of the substance. Cinematically speaking, they kept the headstones but got rid of the bodies. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/4 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Reboots the franchise with intense, explosive energy... It is straight-up, wall-to-wall bonkers. " ‐ Salt Lake City Weekly
Posted May 14, 2015
D+ 8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "One of those comedies about supposedly ordinary people of at least average intelligence who nonetheless spend the entire movie being frantic, bumbling morons. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted May 8, 2015

Posted May 1, 2015
B- 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "It's like we're watching consecutive episodes of a very large, very expensive TV show. You might love the show, but it's not exactly an "event" every time it's on, you know? " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Apr 30, 2015
B- 44% True Story (2015) "Begins better than it ends, with tantalizing details that suggest a more satisfying tale than is actually in store. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Apr 29, 2015
C+ 81% Furious 7 (2015) "The action scenes are ridiculous and implausible, but they are undeniably entertaining. Everything else, though, is drudgery. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015
100% Night Owls "It's a thoughtful, humorous, uncomplicated film that invites us to spend time with two highly enjoyable people. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Apr 6, 2015

Posted Mar 17, 2015
3/4 92% Ex Machina (2015) "...[Ex Machina] never stops being slick, cool, and polished, its intelligence not artificial at all. " ‐ Movie Mezzanine
Posted Mar 17, 2015
72% The DUFF (2015) "Anyone not currently in high school is bound to find it derivative, albeit not unpleasant. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 20, 2015

Posted Feb 13, 2015
C 81% The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015) "Just like the real experiment, the film starts out well, then gets progressively out of control before dissolving into chaos. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
D+ 50% Knock Knock "Takes a titillating setup and turns it into hot, wet garbage that doesn't even work as exploitation, much less as psychological horror or social commentary. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
B 81% The Overnight (2015) "Even as sex comedies go, this one is slight, but it's funny. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015

Posted Feb 13, 2015
B+ 77% Cop Car (2015) "A surprisingly rich comedy, with an unexpected dash of tension and Coen Bros.-style crime fiction. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
B+ 97% '71 (2015) "A tense, nerve-racking drama set primarily over the course of one night in Belfast. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
B+ 71% Experimenter (2015) "Despite the alarming questions the study raised about human nature, the film is enjoyably relaxed, a humorous and upbeat account of a fascinating phenomenon. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
B+ 78% Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon (2015) "Whether you're familiar with the Lampoon magazine or just a fan of comedy in general, this is a thoroughly enlightening and entertaining homework assignment. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015

Posted Feb 13, 2015
C 35% Strangerland (2015) "Overlong, ambiguous, and unsatisfying, yet marked by beautiful cinematography and a few terrific performances. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
C 43% The D Train (2015) "Just another raunchy bromantic comedy that earns a few laughs before petering out. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 13, 2015
25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Presumably the sequels will explore forbidden taboos like "character development" and "plot." " ‐ GeekNation

Posted Feb 6, 2015
25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "It's bold, silly, and messy, but it's sincere... You get the feeling the Wachowskis don't care if it makes money, that they'll happily spin their adventure yarns for whoever will listen. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Feb 5, 2015
34% Blackhat (2015) "Unfortunately, Blackhat proves to be worthier of January's taint than of Mann's good name. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Jan 16, 2015
2/5 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "Never fully embraces its potential as a bawdy frat house comedy, seemingly content to stick with safe, easy jokes and a formulaic plot that wastes the talents of its stars. " ‐ Complex
Posted Jan 16, 2015
73% American Sniper (2015) "Never mind whether [its] superficiality makes the movie reckless, it makes the movie pointless. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Jan 16, 2015
9% Taken 3 (2015) "This intentionally superficial character and premise have been stretched out much further than they were ever meant to be stretched. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Jan 10, 2015
99% Selma (2015) "Oyelowo's performance reflects the film as a whole: graceful understated, not showy, yet deeply moving. " ‐ GeekNation
Posted Jan 9, 2015
2/5 27% Annie (2014) "It was a bold choice to fill a role made famous by Carol Burnett with someone who isn't funny. " ‐ Complex
Posted Dec 19, 2014
C- 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The meat of the story has already been told; all that's left now is the third-act battle and the tying up of threads whose beginnings we may well have forgotten. " ‐ Complex
