5/10 30% As Above/So Below (2014) " Not the worst example of found footage by a long shot, and it moves a decent pace with a couple of good scares. However, this could have been a far more frightening feature if only it had expanded on its scary premise. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 29, 2014
6/10 45% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " As a whole and complete anthology, A DAME TO KILL FOR falls short of the first. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 22, 2014
4/10 8% Are You Here (2014) " Not really all that funny, and not all that touching, but if you are a fan of the cast it might be worth a rental." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 19, 2014
6/10 66% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) " This is an occasionally striking journey that seems to last just a little too long, yet at its best it is an appealing romantic drama." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 6, 2014
70/100 48% Earth to Echo (2014) " This is a sweet little movie. It may not be mind-blowing or even thought-provoking, but it is near impossible to not be taken in by little Echo and his group of human friends." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 1, 2014
8/10 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " 22 Jump Street is a hilarious continuation that successfully builds on what the first started." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 10, 2014
9/10 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " Heartfelt, funny, and captivating, this is a satisfying continuation of the first film." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jun 9, 2014
7/10 80% Delivery: The Beast Within (2014) " ...both Vail and Barclay give compelling performances. They are very convincing and sympathetic which made for an effective emotional anchor to the film. Basically I gave a crap about what happened to them. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 30, 2014
9/10 88% Chef (2014) " Chef is a wonderful film. It is one that, much like great food, should be savored and enjoyed." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 8, 2014
9/10 73% Neighbors (2014) " ...a delightfully dirty frat flick which manages to inject a ton of sweetness perfectly into the mix." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 6, 2014
4/10 54% Fading Gigolo (2014) " Not without its charms, this modern day Don Juan tale and his complicated relations fails to live up to promise of what could have been." — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 17, 2014
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 75% 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 79% 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 89% 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 10% 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 44% 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 24% 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 (2013) " 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 80% 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 74% 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 67% 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 50% 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 63% 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
