3/5 56% Dom Hemingway (2014) " Jude Law is one of the most underrated actors in the business, and though it's been awhile since he's had a part to really sink his teeth into, he may have found the role of a lifetime with Dom Hemingway." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 8, 2014
4/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " The Raid 2 may not provide quite the same adrenaline rush of its faster-paced, more contained predecessor, but it's a richer and more sophisticated action-thriller that ranks among the best crime movies ever made." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 7, 2014
3.5/5 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Arguably the studio's best sequel to date - a gripping and socially relevant continuation to its hero's cinematic evolution." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 4, 2014
2/5 22% Sabotage (2014) " There's nothing about Sabotage that's even remotely surprising, except perhaps for the fact that a film with such a cool premise and awesome cast could be this boring." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 27, 2014
2/5 23% Need For Speed (2014) " Need for Speed is in desperate need of a lot of things - a better script, stronger direction, better pacing - but one thing you wouldn't think it'd be lacking is excitement." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3/5 63% Bad Words (2014) " Although the story is a little undercooked and the big "twist" is entirely predictable, Bad Words delivers enough hilarious, foul-mouthed mischief to deserve its title." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 13, 2014
3.5/5 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) " You know what to expect when watching one of Anderson's films, and his latest doesn't disappoint, overflowing with colorful characters, zany plot twists and sublime production design." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 12, 2014
2/5 24% Pompeii (2014) " Everything about Pompeii feels half-assed - from its bland romance, to its terrible dialogue, to the worthless addition of 3D." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 20, 2014
B- 70% About Last Night (2014) " [It's] typical rom-com fare, but it's a more enjoyable adaptation of the source material that's elevated by its smart direction, solid cast, and willingness to make sex and dating every bit as funny, charming, and sincere as it is in real life." — Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 14, 2014
2.5/5 48% RoboCop (2014) " The fact that it's not a complete failure will feel like a win to some fans... [but] its inability to capitalize on the promise that it shows early on is perhaps the biggest disappointment." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 11, 2014
2.5/5 33% The Monuments Men (2014) " A giant mess tonally... It's as if [Clooney] was caught in two minds as to which kind of movie he wanted to make." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 6, 2014
2.5/5 33% Labor Day (2014) " It's essentially a trashy romance novel disguised as an Oscar prestige movie - the kind of story that sets back feminism several decades." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 30, 2014
1.5/5 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) " If there were any reservations about just how bad of an actor Kellan Lutz really is, The Legend of Hercules more than confirms it." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 10, 2014
3.5/5 49% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " While Stiller has retained the core spirit of the original story, he's produced a more modernized, feel-good road movie that's got a bit of a Forrest Gump vibe to it without quite the same heavy-handedness." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2013
4/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " Between Leonardo DiCaprio's brilliant lead performance and Terrence Winter's excellent script, it's without a doubt the funniest movie that Scorsese has ever directed." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2013
3/5 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) " Anchorman 2 is at times funnier than its predecessor, but it's also wildly inconsistent, bouncing aimlessly between gut-busting hilarity and entire sequences that miss their mark." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 17, 2013
4.5/5 93% American Hustle (2013) " Immensely entertaining, impeccably structured and featuring excellent performances from its entire cast, American Hustle is one of the year's absolute best films and a serious contender for every major award." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3.5/5 95% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) " Although the movie is a fairly bittersweet portrait of personal failure (a running theme in the Coens' repertoire), it's not without their trademark wit and humor." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 5, 2013
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " Under the assured direction of Francis Lawrence (stepping in for the departing Gary Ross), Catching Fire doesn't just improve upon Collins' book, but the first movie as well." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 20, 2013
2.5/5 92% Nebraska (2013) " Though it features some good laughs and decent performances, the movie never really goes anywhere." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3/5 94% Dallas Buyers Club (2013) " Dallas Buyers Club isn't the kind of movie that would normally attract this much Oscar buzz... but it benefits from a couple of great performances that demand to be seen." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 2, 2013
4/5 69% About Time (2013) " This is not only [Richard Curtis'] most mature and personal work to date, but it's also one of his best." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) " It's like Harry Potter meets Full Metal Jacket, and while that's certainly an intriguing mash-up, the movie doesn't quite live up to the book's reputation." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 31, 2013
3.5/5 97% 12 Years a Slave (2013) " Though Solomon Northupp's story is one that deserves to be told, it could have benefited from a little restraint." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 26, 2013
4/5 93% Captain Phillips (2013) " A gripping hostage thriller that boasts some of the year's finest performances, not only by Hanks, but his amateur co-stars as well." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 10, 2013
3/5 89% Rush (2013) " Rush teeters on the edge of being a really good film, but despite some fantastic source material, it never fully seizes the opportunity." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 26, 2013
3/5 49% Thanks For Sharing (2013) " Pretty standard indie fare that's only elevated by its ensemble cast." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 20, 2013
3/5 29% The Family (2013) " A surprisingly funny fish-out-of-water tale that succeeds thanks to its excellent cast." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 12, 2013
3.5/5 74% You're Next (2013) " It's not exactly an instant classic, but You're Next is a horror movie lover's treat that embraces as many genre tropes as it subverts." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 22, 2013
3/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " Although it lacks the provocative originality of its predecessor, [the film] maintains the same sense of fun and over-the-top absurdity that made the first Kick-Ass such a blast." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) " We're the Millers doesn't break any new comedic ground, but it's packed with some great laughs and an ensemble cast that seems game for just about anything." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 6, 2013
3/5 69% The Wolverine (2013) " It's an enjoyable addition to the X-Men series thanks mostly to Jackman's involvement... but it's hardly the definitive Wolverine movie that fans were promised." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 27, 2013
3.5/5 89% The World's End (2013) " Wright and Co. have produced another excellent comedy that, although it falls a little short of their previous two films, still delivers all the laughs that we've come to expect from the trio." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 20, 2013
3/5 42% Red 2 (2013) " Although it doesn't quite pack the same punch as its predecessor, RED 2 is still a good deal of fun thanks almost entirely to its star-studded cast." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 18, 2013
4/5 85% The Way Way Back (2013) " In a summer filled with big budget blockbusters, leave it to a quaint coming-of-age comedy to stand out as the best of the season." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 12, 2013
3/5 72% Pacific Rim (2013) " While Pacific Rim functions as a fairly enjoyable popcorn flick, it's lacking any real substance." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 11, 2013
2.5/5 30% The Lone Ranger (2013) " Disney's big screen adaptation of the classic radio serial is like the Pirates movies in many ways, and unfortunately, that includes the bad along with the good." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 2, 2013
1.5/5 65% The Heat (2013) " You know what would have been funny? If Bullock and McCarthy had switched roles... Instead, we got Miss Congeniality 3: Boston Boogaloo." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 27, 2013
3.5/5 67% World War Z (2013) " An immensely entertaining film that also happens to be much smarter than your average summer blockbuster." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 20, 2013
2.5/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " There's no real point to the movie, unless it's to say that stealing from B-list celebrities will make you equally as famous, in which case, isn't it just contributing to the problem?" — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 20, 2013
3.5/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) " This is exactly the kind of reboot that the franchise desperately needed... a massive and incredibly enjoyable step in the right direction." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 13, 2013
2.5/5 34% The Internship (2013) " Vaughn and Wilson take an incredibly formulaic and improbable setup and make it somewhat enjoyable." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 7, 2013
1/5 1% Disaster Movie (2008) " It's juvenile and crude, and it ranks right up there as one of the worst films of the year." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 4, 2013
3/5 68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " Bigger and dumber but still tons of fun, Fast & Furious 6 may have you rolling your eyes even more than usual, but that's part of what make the series so great." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 23, 2013
1.5/5 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) " A joyless and humorless cash-in that bears little resemblance to the 2009 original except by name." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 23, 2013
3/5 78% 42 (2013) " An enjoyable tribute to one of baseball's biggest heroes, [but] it's not as memorable as the source material warrants." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 11, 2013
3.5/5 81% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " An impressive piece of American filmmaking that's every bit as compelling as it is annoyingly flawed. " — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 11, 2013
3/5 68% Trance (2013) " An entertaining psychological thriller, [but] it doesn't quite live up to Boyle's more recent, award-winning work." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 5, 2013
2.5/5 50% Welcome to the Punch (2013) " Ultimately a case of style over substance, and one that its top-notch British ensemble is unable to rescue. " — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 26, 2013
2/5 38% Admission (2013) " Not even Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, arguably two of Hollywood's most likable performers, are able to do much to save Weitz's latest effort." — Bullz-Eye.com
