1/5 45% Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014) " A definite nominee for the worst kids movie of all-time. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 18, 2014
1/5 20% Sex Tape (2014) " Making a sex tape would be a lot more fun. Maybe someone also forgot to erase this movie? " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 18, 2014
3/5 55% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) " Better than the original but better is a relative term. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 18, 2014
4/5 81% Begin Again (2014) " A decent feel-good flick that features also decent music. The real reason to see it is the acting especially that of Mark Ruffalo who gives a career best performance. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 11, 2014
3.5/5 91% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " Good movie, great effects but a bit slow in spots. What actually impressed me most is Andy Serkis -- who voices the ape leader Caesar -- getting top-billing. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 11, 2014
1/5 48% Earth to Echo (2014) " Earthling to Echo. No kid on any planet is going to like this one. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 3, 2014
3/5 23% Tammy (2014) " Love Melissa McCarthy. She can do no wrong. Her movie, on the other hand, does everything wrong. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jul 3, 2014
3.5/5 17% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Waaayyyy too long but not as bad as some are painting it to be. If this is your thing, what I, or other critics think, won't matter anyway. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 27, 2014
5/5 54% Jersey Boys (2014) " Clint Eastwood gets a movie version of a gold record for this terrific retelling of the Broadway play of the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 20, 2014
4/5 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) " 22 Jump Street jumps off where 21 Jump Street ended. When it's funny, it's really funny. When it's not, it's REALLY not. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 13, 2014
4/5 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " Just like the first film, when it's done you want to run out and pick up your own dragon. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 13, 2014
4/5 83% Belle (2014) " Based on the "true" story of an African woman of British nobility and the role she might or might not have played in an historical anti-slavery legal decision." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 6, 2014
4/5 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " How good this genre of film is depends on how the actors, writers and the director get from predictable A to Z. This one does it perfectly." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 6, 2014
5/5 88% Chef (2014) " Jon Favreau has cooked up a great movie. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 1, 2014
4.5/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " A better title, a million ways to laugh in the West." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 1, 2014
4/5 49% Maleficent (2014) " Definitely the baddest fairy of them all. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jun 1, 2014
4/5 66% The Railway Man (2014) " Intense, well-acted, worth seeing but the back and forth, past to present barely works." — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 23, 2014
1/5 14% Blended (2014) " Sandler & Barrymore. Great chemistry. They're terrific. Their movie is not." — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 23, 2014
3/5 92% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " You'll love it if Marvel comic book movies are your thing. If not, it's a yawner. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 23, 2014
4/5 61% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " It's always okay when a baseball movie goes into extra innings. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 16, 2014
1/5 74% Godzilla (2014) " Godzilla saves the world but can't save he? she? its? movie. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 16, 2014
2/5 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " Seriously. No one would pay several thousand to sleep with a middle-aged guy who looks like John Turturro. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 9, 2014
2.5/5 16% Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014) " Dorothy's return doesn't give you much of a return for the time invested." — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 9, 2014
1/5 73% Neighbors (2014) " Would love to have Seth Rogen as a neighbor. He'd be a blast and probably more fun than his movies." — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 9, 2014
4/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " The not so amazing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was enough fun when it was fun to recommend. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted May 1, 2014
1/5 23% The Other Woman (2014) " Couldn't make up its mind whether to do slapstick or more sophisticated brand of comedy and sadly, wasn't that good at either. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 25, 2014
3/5 91% Bears (2014) " A barely bearable bear nature flick. Great cinematography. Boring story & script. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/5 19% Transcendence (2014) " A technology run amok flick about artificial intelligence that isn't intelligent -- artificial or otherwise. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 18, 2014
3.5/5 62% Draft Day (2014) " Kevin Costner is never better than when doing a sports movie. Draft Day wouldn't be my number-one movie pick but it's not bad if you're a sports movie fan. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 11, 2014
4.5/5 74% Oculus (2014) " Oculus is frighteningly good and light years better than most of the crap passed off as horror these days." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Apr 11, 2014
2/5 20% Sabotage (2014) " The governator's latest has more plot holes than the dozens of bullet-riddled bodies that inhabit this ridiculous story." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 28, 2014
4/5 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " This is really aimed at an adult audience that grew up on the Muppets. By the 45-minute mark of the 112-minute movie, their kids or grandkids will be squirming in their seats." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 21, 2014
4/5 41% Divergent (2014) " I can recommend but the movie is hampered by a cookie-cutter societal threat and to mix metaphors, the paint-by-numbers plot turns painfully predictable at the climax." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 21, 2014
4/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) " This is all about speed and well-done dangerous dashes and spectacular crashes. They're fun. Unfortunately, at 130-minutes Need for Speed is everything but speedy. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 14, 2014
4/5 79% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " Kids will love it. Adults -- especially those growing up on the original -- will enjoy the bazillion puns, marvelous wordplay and sense of humor. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2/5 41% 300: Rise of an Empire (2014) " This time you have the option of seeing all the blood, gore and bare chests and breasts in glorious 3-D." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Mar 7, 2014
1/5 29% Pompeii (2014) " Pompeii ends up an epic failure that doesn't show off the Mount Vesuvius disaster as much as it duplicates it." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 22, 2014
3.5/5 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " Not a great movie but also not a bad way to spend an afternoon or evening. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 22, 2014
3.5/5 13% Winter's Tale (2014) " It takes awhile to get into a groove but once it gets there Winter's Tale is one of this winter's best tales. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 14, 2014
4/5 49% RoboCop (2014) " RoboCop -- even 27 years after the original -- is hard not to like." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3.5/5 32% The Monuments Men (2014) " Recommendable. Barely. It's like the first cut was too long so scenes connecting to pieces left in the final version were cut. What's left is a story with dots not connected. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 7, 2014
4/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " Much of the adult humor zips over the heads of children, who will dig the characters and the action, and everyone loves the legos." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Feb 7, 2014
2.5/5 33% Labor Day (2014) " Seriously good acting and Labor Day is a reasonable 111-minutes. However a draggy plot with nowhere fresh to go turns Labor Day into Belabor Day." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 31, 2014
2.5/5 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) " 20-something relationship crisis rom-com's are a predictable A to B to C. How they negotiate the alphabet determines the outcome. This one has too many awkward moments." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 31, 2014
4/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " After growing up in a dysfunctional family, movies about them sits at the bottom of my movie priority list. The acting, however, makes this a must-see." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 10, 2014
4/5 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " Flawed, multi-dimensional characters are a Coen brothers specialty. You'll like none of them but will love the movie and the music. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 10, 2014
4/5 75% Lone Survivor (2014) " Great acting. Terrific movie. It's flaw is one faced by most directors doing a military biopic. Peter Berg fails to realize that less is more." — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 10, 2014
3/5 94% Her (2013) " Brilliantly done, inspired acting but the one-note plot has nowhere to go. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Jan 10, 2014
4/5 29% Grudge Match (2013) " Sylvester Stallone is never better than when he's playing Rocky or a character like him. Add Robert Di Niro to the mix and presto: guilty pleasure. " — Tri-City Herald
Posted Dec 28, 2013
4/5 50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " This Ben Stiller-directed and Stiller and Kristen Wiig star vehicle is not close to James Thurber's charming, classic short story but has a charm of its own. " — Tri-City Herald
