9/10 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " Be prepared for a game changer!" — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 24, 2014
6/10 76% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " While not quite as disturbing as ANTICHRIST nor as captivating as MELANCHOLIA, this sexually charged feature is a strange and yes, pretentious film that is ultimately worth investing in for fans of the director." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 21, 2014
5/10 78% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) " ...the humor here is forced and the story fails to create much more than a forgettable time waster." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 4, 2014
7/10 88% The Wind Rises (2014) " THE WIND RISES is a visually powerful feature with a less-than-stellar romance." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 19, 2014
9/10 96% The Lego Movie (2014) " Delightfully witty and energetic, this engaging flick manages to create a sense of wonder for everybody." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 4, 2014
7/10 63% Nurse 3-D (2014) " ...a visually enticing hour and a half that is willing to do just about anything to excite. High art it is not, but if you are looking for a good time you might want to give this NURSE a call." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 3, 2014
9/10 78% Big Bad Wolves (2014) " There is something deeply disturbing at the heart of Big Bad Wolves and I mean that in the best possible way." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 21, 2014
3/10 11% The Nut Job (2014) " With few laughs, barely tolerable characters and over-the-top action, THE NUT JOB clumsily makes the transition from short to feature film." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 13, 2014
7/10 43% Cold Comes The Night (2014) " It may be too short and a little too convenient, yet it is ultimately a decent thriller that is worth checking out." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 8, 2014
3/10 25% Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) " The animation department deserved a better story and script than this." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 20, 2013
10/10 94% Her (2014) " Her is filled with strong performances, an insightful script, beautiful direction and an impressive score from the critically acclaimed rock outfit Arcade Fire for what is truly a very human love story." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 19, 2013
6/10 61% Hours (2013) " The chemistry Walker shares with Rodriguez is terrific as the two played off of each other perfectly." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 13, 2013
8/10 79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Saving Mr. Banks is a joyful tale made all the better by a winning cast especially the fantastic supporting performance from Colin Farrell." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 10, 2013
9/10 75% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " ...a near perfect blend of the previous trilogy as well as giving Bilbo Baggins his own fully realized story with another brilliant creation in the form of Smaug." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 9, 2013
5/10 42% Oldboy (2013) " This is simply a cold and calculated revenge thriller that is satisfied to offer a few shocks, good performances with a little sex and violence thrown in for good measure." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 26, 2013
9/10 89% Frozen (2013) " This is an extravagant yet profound story for the entire family." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 25, 2013
8/10 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " With an impressive cast and an intriguing story, this is one cinematic revolution that fans are sure to rejoice in." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 12, 2013
7/10 66% Sunlight Jr. (2013) " Collyer is a gifted storyteller with a knack for writing damaged characters who can't seem to rise above their impossible odds." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 11, 2013
4/10 34% The Counselor (2013) " Even if the film failed to win me over, this all-star thriller is not a total misfire, if only it were firing more than just impressive looking blanks." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 26, 2013
8/10 60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) " Knoxville is of course terrific as Zisman, but it is young Jackson Nicoll's fearless performance that really steals the show." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 24, 2013
8/10 78% Metallica Through the Never (2013) " However, light the story itself may be, as a music fan - especially a Metallica fan - THROUGH THE NEVER is a rock and roll cinematic trip worth taking." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 25, 2013
6/10 81% Don Jon (2013) " For a first time feature filmmaker, this is a brave attempt to examine the clichés of a modern romance." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 25, 2013
8/10 89% Rush (2013) " ...it is Brühl who gives the more complex and moving performance. His blonde-haired, good-looking enemy might be far more colorful and exciting, yet there is something about rooting for the underdog." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 17, 2013
7/10 51% A Single Shot (2013) " A SINGLE SHOT is another reminder of just how fantastic an actor Mr. Rockwell is as he holds it all together with a powerful performance." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 16, 2013
2/10 29% The Family (2013) " Predictable, dull and chaotic, THE FAMILY is one of the least funny comedies of the year." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 13, 2013
7/10 35% Jayne Mansfield's Car (2013) " If you are a fan of Thornton's earlier work you will definitely find this to be an oddly enlightening experience." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 10, 2013
4/10 31% Adore (2013) " Adore is a pretty yet superficial romance that feels more like a Twitter update with #richwhitewomenproblems." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 6, 2013
5/10 42% Closed Circuit (2013) " This may be worth a look for those who enjoy a nice proper British mystery on the telly. Yet as it stands it would be near impossible to recommend going to the cinema or paying a costly VOD price." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 28, 2013
9/10 89% The World's End (2013) " The World's End is gruesomely gooey and wonderfully clever without skimping on real three-dimensional characters." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 20, 2013
5/10 26% Planes (2013) " Planes is not terrible, it is just not much of anything at all." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 10, 2013
8/10 83% Prince Avalanche (2013) " PRINCE AVALANCHE feels uniquely like David Gordon Green and I for one am thankful for that." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 8, 2013
7/10 80% Curse of Chucky (2013) " This may be nothing more than a low-budget horror sequel, yet it is one that is much better than the straight-to-video label would lead you to believe." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 6, 2013
6/10 54% Lovelace (2013) " Lovelace is a decent cinematic escape that could have been so much more." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 6, 2013
7/10 80% Europa Report (2013) " It is one that is worth experiencing for true science fiction fans" — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 29, 2013
8/10 67% Turbo (2013) " ...this may be the most entertaining animated movie of the summer." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 16, 2013
3/10 10% Killing Season (2013) " Killing Season is competently put together, yet the woefully hollow dialogue and the predictable plot developments make for a pretty bland flick." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 12, 2013
8/10 12% Hustlers (2013) " ... for those willing to take this trashy B-movie wild ride you'll be in for a hell of a good time." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 8, 2013
6/10 74% Despicable Me 2 (2013) " Not a great movie for sure, but if your kids want to see this there is enough humor to not drive yourself minion crazy." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 3, 2013
8/10 62% Byzantium (2013) " Byzantium is a smaller and more intimate companion piece to Jordan's own cinematic supernatural lore, one that is well worth a visit for fans of the vampire mythology." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 26, 2013
7/10 67% World War Z (2013) " The family dynamic quickly establishes WWZ as a somewhat character driven thriller, and it is better off for that." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 7, 2013
8/10 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) " This is an intimate and giddy romantic comedy with only a hint of seriousness, one that is as elegant as it is fun." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 3, 2013
5/10 64% Epic (2013) " This woodland fairy tale is not nearly as Epic as the title would suggest. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 25, 2013
4/10 26% Erased (2013) " A cold and lifeless feature that offers a couple of good performances yet it fails to tell any sort of an intriguing story. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 17, 2013
8/10 75% Pieta (2013) " ...as a character study and even as a thriller, PIETA creates an uneasy sense of dread heightened by the two terrific leads. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 15, 2013
7/10 35% Aftershock (2013) " ...if you think you are going to be witnessing something in the vein of your typical death and destruction flick like THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW or 2012, you will probably be horrified by the depravity on display. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 8, 2013
8/10 66% The Iceman (2013) " The Iceman is a tense dramatic thriller presenting a grim - yet seemingly more picturesque - portrayal of a cold and calculated killer, a role that is tailor made for the ferociously intense Michael Shannon." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 1, 2013
9/10 78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " Tony Stark's latest adventure is an enthusiastically exciting ride that never loses its humor or its edge." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 24, 2013
8/10 49% Pain & Gain (2013) " With three fantastic lead performances and a healthy dose of style, those who can appreciate an action-packed black comedy will savor the ride." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 23, 2013
6/10 45% To The Wonder (2013) " This is not one of Malick's best works clearly, yet the beauty and skill it does offer may be worth revisiting." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 8, 2013
8/10 28% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) " It's getting to the point that we should just give Dwayne Johnson a shot at all the big summer blockbusters in need of repair. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
