Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
1.5/5 41% Life After Beth (2014) " A dead-on-arrival comedy that's just as much in need of some brains as its title character." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 28, 2014
3.5/5 98% Starred Up (2014) " From the cell block politics, to the crooked authorities supposedly in charge of keeping the peace, Starred Up doesn't pull any punches in its tough and gritty depiction of prison life." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 27, 2014
3/5 20% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) " Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles delivers a slightly different take on the series... and though it gets some things wrong along the way, it gets just as much right." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 7, 2014
4/5 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " Gunn absolutely nails the offbeat tone of the source material, creating a sort of punk rock Star Wars that delivers big on adventure and comedy with a thoroughly entertaining cast of characters." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 30, 2014
2/5 48% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " The whole thing feels less like a genuine Woody Allen comedy than a pale imitation." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 24, 2014
3.5/5 41% Wish I Was Here (2014) " Wish I Was Here is a confident, funny and heartfelt tragicomedy that, although not without its blemishes, proves Braff is more than just a one-hit wonder." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 22, 2014
2/5 57% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) " Unlike the home invasion plot of the first film, Anarchy has shed itself almost entirely of all horror elements, aiming for something more along the lines of a retro John Carpenter movie, only not as good." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 17, 2014
3/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " What it lacks in originality, the movie makes up for in sheer visual spectacle." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 11, 2014
1/5 24% Tammy (2014) " Sitting through McCarthy's latest movie is about as pleasant as a punch to the face." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 1, 2014
3/5 83% Begin Again (2014) " Begin Again doesn't quite have the same magic of Once, but it's a sweet and cuddly crowd-pleaser highlighted by a pair of great performances and some catchy tunes." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 26, 2014
2.5/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " A fitfully funny sequel that lacks the surprise factor of its predecessor." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 12, 2014
3.5/5 90% Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " Edge of Tomorrow isn't without its faults... but those are minor annoyances for a film that proves to be such a satisfying breath of fresh air in a summer packed with sequels." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 5, 2014
3/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " A Million Ways to Die in the West is guaranteed to divide audiences, but it's a really solid comedy with more than enough laughs to offset its minor shortcomings." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 29, 2014
3/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " There's quite a bit to like about Days of Future Past, but it feels more like a step backward than the creative leap forward that Matthew Vaughn's prequel pointed towards." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 24, 2014
2/5 14% Blended (2014) " While Blended isn't as aggressively terrible as [Adam Sandler]'s recent crop of films, it's not very funny either." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 22, 2014
2.5/5 73% Godzilla (2014) " It doesn't take a nuclear physicist to realize that a Godzilla film should probably have more, you know, Godzilla." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 15, 2014
3/5 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) " For all the things that the film gets wrong, it does just enough right to keep you entertained, even if it fails to capitalize on the promise of its predecessor." — Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 1, 2014
3/5 58% 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 20% 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 22% 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 65% 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 29% 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- 68% 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 32% 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 50% 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 94% 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 93% 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
