Posted Oct 30, 2013

Posted Oct 11, 2013
3/4 81% Don Jon (2013) "''Don Jon'' is a lark, but an enjoyable one with a full-hearted finale, and it further reveals the considerable talents of Gordon-Levitt. " ‐ Associated Press

Posted Aug 21, 2013
2.5/4 79% Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013) "Awash in 1970s filmmaking and the kind of stylized folksiness that pickling Brooklyn hipsters with handlebar mustaches will positively drool over. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Aug 14, 2013

31% The Lone Ranger (2013) "There's a limit, it turns out, to how much Johnny Depp and a bucket of makeup can accomplish. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 1, 2013
2/4 51% White House Down (2013) "If stripped of its production value, ''White House Down'' would make one hysterical off-Broadway one-act. " ‐ Associated Press

Posted Mar 21, 2013

Posted Feb 28, 2013

Posted Dec 19, 2012

Posted Nov 20, 2012
2.5/4 83% Seven Psychopaths (2012) "After breaking apart the crime film, McDonagh puts it back together again for a conclusion worthy of the genre. " ‐ Associated Press

2.5/4 76% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) "As artificial as much of the apparatus surrounding Perry may be, none of it works without her charisma at the center. That comes through in "Part of Me," as does her intense drive to succeed after early failures. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jul 4, 2012

Posted Apr 25, 2012
1.5/4 22% Darling Companion (2012) "It ... feels utterly neutered, a film with little on the line and a talented cast begging for a little wit and a few jokes.

Posted Apr 18, 2012
2/4 38% Lockout (Unrated) (2012) "Cavalierly conceived, generically titled and derivatively plotted. It feels like a missed chance because Pearce and Grace came ready to play. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Apr 11, 2012
2.5/4 70% The Hunter (2012) ""The Hunter" doesn't particularly test him, but Dafoe, who's in every scene of the film, easily dominates it. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Apr 3, 2012
2/4 25% Wrath of the Titans (2012) "Perhaps Liebesman, whose previous movie was the grim "Battle: Los Angeles," is too drawn to the spectacle of battle to find the balance of camp and seriousness a patently ludicrous film such as "Wrath of Titans" seeks. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Mar 28, 2012
2/4 85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) ""The Raid: Redemption" will offer a full meal to action-starved moviegoers, but strike most others as -- for all its athletic dynamism -- lacking nutrition. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Mar 21, 2012
2/4 38% Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012) "With limitless absurdity comes a kind of glossy-eyed meaninglessness and extreme tastelessness. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 28, 2012
1.5/4 25% Act of Valor (2012) "Just barely a movie, "Act of Valor" is more like a high-quality recruitment video with interstitial acting. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 23, 2012
1.5/4 74% Rampart (2012) "Instead of leading toward understanding, "Rampart" remains a dirty cop caricature, more a complaint than a story. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 8, 2012
2.5/4 66% The Woman in Black (2012) "The appeal of a good ol' ghost story is strong, and the simplicity of "The Woman in Black" suits the tradition. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Feb 2, 2012
2/4 79% The Grey (2012) "Ultimately, the film feels less like a genuine existential thriller than a movie aping the conventions of one. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 25, 2012
2/4 40% Red Tails (2012) "The biggest flaw here is the corny script by John Ridley and Aaron McGruder, the Boondocks cartoonist. There's a fine, swaggering vibe, but a curious hesitance to really tell the Tuskegee story. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 19, 2012
2.5/4 76% We Need to Talk About Kevin (2012) "This thoroughly well-crafted, if rigidly conceived film could use a little more talking -- at least some therapy! -- about Kevin. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Jan 11, 2012
2/4 55% In the Land of Blood and Honey (2011) "There isn't enough context given to the overall conflict, and the love story feels increasingly myopic as the war drags on and the film's ambitions broaden. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 20, 2011
1.5/4 12% Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (2011) "Puns like these would be unforgivable coming from a human. From high-pitched rodents, they prompt calls for an exterminator. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 14, 2011
1.5/4 7% New Year's Eve (2011) "If there is some kind of world record for schmaltz, this may have set it. " ‐ Associated Press
Posted Dec 6, 2011
3/4 93% Coriolanus (2011) "The play has been significantly but artfully trimmed by John Logan's screenplay, which preserves Shakespeare's language. " ‐ Associated Press
