7/10 28% Everly (2015) "EVERLY is a popcorn flick through and through, one that features a game leading lady and a director with a passion for excess. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 22, 2015
5/10 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Fifty Shades of Grey is by no means a masterpiece. Yet there are moments where it rises above the material thanks to the lovely Dakota Johnson who is luminous, and a director that helps paint a very pretty picture. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/10 13% Seventh Son (2015) "It's a waste of talent for all those involved. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 6, 2015
8/10 79% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) "It may not be be the smartest animated flick out there, but with all the wildly weird happenings, and impressive 3D effects being flung out at you, it is absolutely entertaining. Simply put, SpongeBob rocks! " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 3, 2015
1/10 14% The Loft (2015) "It really is a shame to see talented actors doing such a mind numbing and dull feature. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 30, 2015
4/10 16% Strange Magic (2015) "At best, it is a tunefully cheerful collection of pop songs with decent animation. At worst, it is a meandering and dull hour and forty minutes of musical theatre that will be grating to anybody over the age of seven. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2/10 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "There are moments of sexy, and moments of crazy, but as a whole THE BOY NEXT DOOR is not worth paying a visit. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 23, 2015
5/10 50% The Humbling (2015) "The Humbling is an uneven mess of a film. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 22, 2015
8/10 80% Black Sea (2015) "It may be a tad predictable, with a bit of a slow start, yet it is a worthy effort from the director giving the modern heist movie a bit of a twist. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 21, 2015
9/10 84% Predestination (2015) "Ethan Hawke, Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook all give terrific performances, but it is Snook who once again proves to be a major talent. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 9, 2015
9/10 89% A Most Violent Year (2015) "Smartly crafted and wonderfully executed, A MOST VIOLENT YEAR creeps up slowly and progresses to an intensely potent conclusion. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 28, 2014
7/10 51% Unbroken (2014) "With stand-out performances from O'Connell, as well as Ishihara, there is certainly enough to warrant a recommendation. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Dec 23, 2014
9/10 60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "With spectacular visuals and the occasionally fun 3D effects, Jackson has once again given the fans something to savor. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) "If you are up for laughs and a bunch of silliness, you may well enjoy the good times these PENGUINS have to offer. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 25, 2014
8/10 74% Starry Eyes (2014) "It may take a little while to get there, but once it does it is worth taking this diabolically offbeat journey. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Nov 13, 2014
6/10 63% Rudderless (2014) "RUDDERLESS offers great music and two charismatic leads, yet the story tends to feel a little out of tune. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 18, 2014
9/10 81% The Book of Life (2014) "THE BOOK OF LIFE is funny, familiar, and fanciful, and it is one of the best animated features of the year. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 17, 2014
5/10 62% Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014) "The story is dumb, but it is short enough to not feel too trapped taking your kids to the movies. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 10, 2014
7/10 69% The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014) "While the original was a more serious and thought provoking experience, this is a stylish and occasionally brutal true crime feature. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Oct 2, 2014
9/10 85% John Wick (2014) "This is the most entertaining Keanu Reeves action vehicle since THE MATRIX. JOHN WICK is a wild and bloody ride that hardly lets up until the final frame. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 19, 2014
5/10 64% The Maze Runner (2014) "If you are looking for the next HUNGER GAMES, this isn't near to that level, but you could do worse. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Sep 13, 2014
7/10 63% The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014) "It may not be a perfect look at romance gone wrong, yet it is a somber and memorable one. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Sep 10, 2014
5/10 26% 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 43% Frank Miller's 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

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 Jun 9, 2014
7/10 67% 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 86% 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 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 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 4, 2014
7/10 55% Nurse (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

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 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 41% 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
