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
Posted Jun 26, 2013
7/10 68% 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 Mar 22, 2013
7/10 70% The Croods (2013) " This prehistoric tale may take a bit of time to really get going but by the end I was very happy to spend a little quality time with the other "modern stone-age family." " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 18, 2013
8/10 27% Upside Down (2013) " Upside Down may be flawed, yet it is a stunningly original work. Give me that over a typical cinematic romance any day. " — JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 12, 2013
7/10 62% Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey (2013) " Everyman's Journey is a fun and occasionally inspiring look at a man given the chance to live his dreams that you can sing along with" — JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Sep 21, 2012

Posted Jul 27, 2012
