2/10 9% Mother's Day (2016) "MOTHER'S DAY is the worst kind of romantic comedy. It's soulless, uninspired and void of any real laughs. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 29, 2016
8/10 76% Elvis & Nixon (2016) "Shannon and Spacey as Elvis and Nixon! That is all the reason you need to enjoy this fine feature. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 20, 2016
8/10 65% A Hologram for the King (2016) "This comedic drama is a refreshingly optimistic film-going experience. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 20, 2016
10/10 83% Midnight Special (2016) "MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is a revelation. It may sound like the filmmaker borrows heavily from others, but believe me, this is still absolutely fresh. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 16, 2016
7/10 37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "While I'm not sure this is worthy of checking out on the big screen, it's certainly fun to sit down with an audience looking for dumb delights. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 10, 2016
7/10 46% Knight of Cups (2016) "KNIGHT OF CUPS is equal parts artificial, genuine, gorgeous, infuriating and captivating. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 4, 2016
7/10 43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "Even with the overuse of CG and the PG-13 rating, PPZ is a bloody good blast of zombie fun. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 1, 2016
6/10 42% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "As a slight feminist western, JANE is a good movie. Considering we're in the "dump month" of January, a good western genre flick is more than welcome. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 31, 2016
7/10 63% The Finest Hours (2016) "It may take a bit to really get going, but once it does it is a worthwhile journey. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 27, 2016
8/10 86% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "This is a bright and shining example of how to do a sequel right. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 25, 2016
1/10 10% Dirty Grandpa (2016) "DIRTY GRANDPA is certainly dirty. It's crude and rude, and that would've been great if it had offered a few laughs. It doesn't. At all. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 22, 2016
7/10 42% Moonwalkers (2016) "With Grint and Perlman making quite the dynamic duo, this is one walk on the moon worth taking. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 12, 2016
1/10 16% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) "It is a loud and bloated live action mixed with animation that will appeal to the less discriminating young ones. I guess in that case it does exactly what it was supposed to, but it is impossible to even mildly recommend something like this. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3/10 43% Bleeding Heart (2015) "If anything, this reminds me how much I'd like to see both Anderson and Biel - hell, even Mamet - in a better film than this. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 79% Macbeth (2015) "This is a fine adaptation, and it continues to prove what an immensely powerful actor Michael Fassbender is. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 2, 2015
6/10 25% Victor Frankenstein (2015) "VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN is an enjoyable - if more than a bit silly - take on the classic story. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 25, 2015
9/10 88% The Big Short (2015) "This modern day morality tale may take on a very serious subject matter, but it does so in an engaging way. The humor is intact, even if the seriousness of the story has a devastating impact. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 17, 2015
8/10 80% Southbound (2016) "Grab the keys, fill up the tank and head Southbound, this is a trip horror fans will enjoy taking. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Nov 14, 2015
6/10 62% Concussion (2015) "If you are a fan of Smith, this is certainly worth checking out for a bargain matinee, but it won't stay with you for a very long time. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 13, 2015
10/10 92% Anomalisa (2015) "ANOMALISA is a thoughtful and distinctively original film. We've all seen a man going through a midlife crisis before, but never like this. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 11, 2015

Posted Nov 9, 2015
7/10 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) "As a long time fan, I would have appreciated perhaps another story than the recycled one offered here, but it is still nice to see all the old friends back. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 6, 2015
9/10 74% Band Of Robbers (2016) "Quirky, cunning, and even a little heartwarming, this is a perfect example of taking a classic story and offering it to a brand new audience. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 3, 2015
6/10 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE accomplishes what it is striving for much of the time, which is little more than a crazy zombie flick with sex. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 30, 2015
4/10 14% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) "Sure I've had my moments of enjoyment with PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, but this "final chapter" adds nothing interesting to the fading franchise. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 23, 2015

Posted Oct 10, 2015

Posted Oct 2, 2015
9/10 92% The Martian (2015) "THE MARTIAN is a smart and moving story that will have kids - and probably everybody else - wanting to go to the farthest ends of the universe. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 2, 2015
7/10 35% The Green Inferno (2015) "If you are looking for a well shot horror movie about a tribe of cannibals, Roth did a pretty damn good job with his directorial return. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Sep 18, 2015

Posted Sep 17, 2015
7/10 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) "THE SCORCH TRIALS has an impressive level of intensity thanks to some effective action set pieces. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Jul 24, 2015
