Posted Feb 11, 2016
B 83% Deadpool (2016) "Funny and zippy though it is, 'Deadpool' is the safe, studio-sanctioned version of 'edgy.' " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Feb 10, 2016
C+ 29% The Boy (2016) "People who like mild funhouse scares and creepy puppets will find it well worth the rental fee at Redbox (assuming that fee is still somewhere in the $1 range). " ‐ EricDSnider.com
Posted Feb 8, 2016
2/4 7% The Choice (2016) "Less of an insane soap opera than a lot of Sparks-based movies, so you could do worse. " ‐ Salt Lake City Weekly

Posted Jan 31, 2016

Posted Jan 24, 2016
B- 80% Other People "The whole thing works better than it should, even if it still might be better as therapy than as a movie. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 23, 2016
C+ 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) "Destined for heavy rotation on TNT, to be half-watched for a few minutes at a time by channel-surfers and laundry-folders. " ‐ EricDSnider.com

Posted Jan 4, 2016
B 82% The Revenant (2015) "Themes so uncomplicated you wonder why Iñárritu needed two and a half hours to convey them. What a ride those two and a half hours are, though. " ‐ EricDSnider.com
