Posted Oct 31, 2014

Posted Oct 17, 2014

Posted Oct 17, 2014

Posted Oct 12, 2014
92% Pride (2014) " Without the well-honed, and not overly maudlin script, "Pride" would not have become the testament to support, commitment and love that it is. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 10, 2014
78% Kill the Messenger (2014) " "Kill the Messenger" is an extremely powerful film --- and one that is so important historically. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Posted Oct 3, 2014
95% Last Days in Vietnam (2014) " "Last Days in Vietnam" isn't just about the horrific mistakes that were made by the U.S. government. It ultimately unveils the untold acts of heroism performed by a select few to save many. It's a true testament to the human spirit. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 3, 2014
88% Gone Girl (2014) " It's not an easy task to make a decent mystery/thriller --- let alone one that was such a widely-read, popular book. But Fincher, Flynn and the rest of the crew were definitely geared up for the project --- with a formidable end result. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 3, 2014

Posted Sep 25, 2014
89% The Drop (2014) " Gandolfini is perfect, but he's really just playing a less classy version of Anthony Soprano. With this being his very last role, the fact that he's back playing a mobster is satisfying, but truly sad. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Sep 11, 2014

Posted Aug 22, 2014
43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " The script is dull, heavy-handed and predictable, with only a few twists and surprises...these characters are simply not compelling. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Aug 22, 2014
73% The German Doctor (2014) " It is the dichotomy of the beauty of the setting with Mengele's monstrous deeds that make "The German Doctor" so unnerving. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Posted Aug 9, 2014

Posted Jul 26, 2014
77% Happy Christmas (2014) " "Happy Christmas" tries very hard to be cool and relevant. But, in the end, it's pretty average and never gets to any real point. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 25, 2014
51% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) " I found it utterly engaging --- I loved it! " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 25, 2014
46% Wish I Was Here (2014) " It wants so badly to be profound, and while it is extremely touching and moving on some levels, on others it misfires completely. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 20, 2014
17% Sex Tape (2014) " "Sex Tape" is nothing more than a mindless way to spend an hour and a half --- not great, not totally awful. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 18, 2014
90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " At least, for once, the fight scenes don't last forever. My favorite is the major battle between Caesar and Koba --- it's very well choreographed and terrifically exciting. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 11, 2014
97% Life Itself (2014) " James has done a great service with this doc --- it demands to be seen, and Roger's life to be appreciated. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 10, 2014
23% Tammy (2014) " Enough with the sight gags and wisecracks about her size, and her love of pies. Choose some other topic to make fun of --- preferably not one which insults our intelligence. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 2, 2014
48% Earth to Echo (2014) " "Earth to Echo" is a flimsy excuse for a tribute to number 25 on AFI's 100 Years 100 Movies List. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jul 2, 2014
23% Third Person (2014) " "Third Person" makes a valiant attempt at being a continuation of Haggis' love for storytelling and multi-layering, but it falls flat --- not having the panache necessary to keep it compelling. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 29, 2014
70% They Came Together (2014) " Who knew that a spoof of romantic comedies could be so hilarious, and entertaining? " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 29, 2014
83% Ivory Tower (2014) " A shocking and disturbing look at higher education in the U.S., "Ivory Tower" does an excellent job exposing the many problems facing universities, and more importantly, students who wish to attend them. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 27, 2014
18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " The battle scenes are consistently too long, even though the special effects of the street fighting in Chicago and Hong Kong are awesome. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 27, 2014
54% Citizen Koch (2014) " It appears the filmmakers had noble intentions in revealing the inequity of influence from wealthy donors, i.e., the Koch brothers, "Citizen Koch" is muddied in its attempt. It fails to deliver its intended message...wake up, America, or we're screwed! " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 13, 2014
58% The Signal (2014) " "The Signal" is completely underwhelming --- not enough science in the fiction. And certainly not thrilling. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 13, 2014
92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " I loved the first "How to Train Your Dragon". But this movie is mired in lengthy oratories which come off as preachy and full of righteous indignation. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jun 13, 2014
85% 22 Jump Street (2014) " Every bit as enjoyable as its predecessor, because, it doesn't take itself too seriously. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
