66% The Night Before (2015) "Seth Rogen may have grown up a lot since Knocked Up, but The Night Before still fits precisely into that wheelhouse of raunch comedy with heart. Thank goodness he hasn't grown up too much to make movies like this one. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Nov 19, 2015
90% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "Idris Elba's ferocious performance alone should be enough to keep Beasts afloat... and the True Detective fans who fell for Fukunaga and his man-bun (now cut short, alas) can see this and know just what a tremendous, ambitious talent he is. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Sep 14, 2015
40% Equals "Equals and its recycled dystopian ideas may feel like nothing new, but that's not a problem for the romance at its center, as old-fashioned as Romeo and Juliet and nearly as satisfying. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Sep 14, 2015
No Score Yet Colonia "For anyone following Watson's slow and steady path toward becoming one of her generation's finest actresses, Colonia is more evidence of the exciting career she's building. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Sep 14, 2015
89% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "Straight Outta Compton earns its place in the pantheon of biopics that are good, just not as great as the artists who inspired them. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Aug 13, 2015
91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) "In an age when more and more movies just feel like stepping-stones toward the next, bigger things, is it so much to ask that it be a good movie all on its own? " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Jul 13, 2015
98% UnReal: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Starring Shiri Appleby, charismatic even when deeply rumpled and grouchy... UnREAL skewers everything from the false romance promised by such shows to the brutal schedules of every Hollywood production. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Jul 6, 2015
100% Catastrophe: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "The show can be vulgar and dark -- Sharon jokes that getting married will only make it harder to sleep with other men -- but also heart-meltingly sweet, sometimes at the same time. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Jul 6, 2015
92% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 14 "It's still a cynical world we live in, but Mad Men's characters finally figured out how to make the most of it. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted May 18, 2015
97% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 11 "For all the tremendous scenes in the episode-Peggy opening up about her child to Stan, Pete and Trudy's surprising tenderness, "We should put a bell on you, Meredith"-the conference room scene may have been the most thrilling. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Apr 27, 2015
5/5 96% Argo (2012) "The emotional catharsis of Argo isn't what happens onscreen, but the sheer knowledge that the creaky old moviemaking system has put together something this crowd-pleasing and great. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Jan 13, 2015
89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "It's not as lovely as Pixar's best, or remotely as complex in its storytelling, but it makes for a refreshingly simple intro course on modern superhero-movie tropes. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Jan 5, 2015
96% The LEGO Movie (2014) "It's one of the few movies based on a toy with no explicit story behind it. And it is, so far, the only one that's really good. " ‐ Vanity Fair
Posted Jan 3, 2015
87% The Orphanage (2007) "Though The Orphanage sticks fairly closely to a genre fomat, and the plot twists become a little predictable, the film packs surprises all the way to the end. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 14, 2014
2.5/5 6% Who's Your Caddy? (2007) "The lackadaiscal plot, cheesy jokes and lack of originality make Caddy nothing more than a trashy comedy, but at least it's occasionally an entertaining one. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 4, 2014
1.5/5 41% Oldboy (2013) "As Oldboy moves on it feels more and more generic, as if a studio grabbed hold of the wheel and turned it into something more resembling a late-90s Ashley Judd thriller than either the original or any of Lee's films. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Nov 26, 2013
4/5 89% Frozen (2013) "This is rigorous Disney hit-making at its finest, but with enough charm to get away with it. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Nov 19, 2013
3/5 69% The Best Man Holiday (2013) "In its strongest moments, it's like spending a weekend with exasperating but beloved friends: full of jokes both witty and dirty, slap fights, heart-to-hearts, and an overwhelming good cheer that only occasionally teeters into sanctimony or sentiment. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Nov 13, 2013
2/5 35% The Counselor (2013) "With Fassbender a blank patsy in one corner, and Diaz and Bardem hot-blooded horror shows in another, none of the actors or characters of The Counselor ever seem to exist together ... " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 24, 2013
3/5 48% Carrie (2013) "Peirce might have made a fantastic horror movie about horrible teenage girls, but she and the actors alike are trapped within a framework that nobody seems brave enough to break out of. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 17, 2013
3/5 48% Carrie (2013) "Touches of wit and insight enliven the first half, but Carrie eventually devolves into lackluster modern horror cliches for a souped-up version of the famous finale. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 17, 2013
2/5 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) "The Fifth Estate tries to ape its subject's bravado and innovation to near-disastrous results. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 15, 2013
4.5/5 94% All Is Lost (2013) "It's nothing new to watch an impressive survival story onscreen, but rare to see it done this well. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 15, 2013
2/5 22% Romeo and Juliet (2013) "Every generation gets their own Romeo and Juliet, but kids these days really didn't deserve this dull, cheapo attempt. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 11, 2013
2.5/5 70% About Time (2013) "About Time is funny and charming as all get out, but its messy core keeps the many pieces of quirk, sentiment and romance from lining up into anything worthy of all the talent here. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 3, 2013
93% Captain Phillips (2013) "True stories this remarkable are rare, and movies about them that work this well are even rarer. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 2, 2013
4.5/5 97% Gravity (2013) "Your mileage may vary on the film's more spiritual elements, but Gravity will make you believe in the higher power of movies. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Oct 1, 2013
4/5 89% Rush (2013) "Rush's greatest strength is the rivalry that drew Howard to tell this story to begin with, and the gifted actors who bring it to life. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Sep 18, 2013
88% Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) "Even if Brooklyn Nine-Nine doesn't revolutionize the cop show format, it shakes up the formula enough with its cast of characters to offer something worth watching. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Sep 16, 2013
4/5 89% The World's End (2013) "A bittersweet, marvelously effective end of a certain goofy era, when friends banding together were enough to save the world. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Aug 22, 2013
2/5 72% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) "A great film about the American civil rights movement is way overdue. The Butler, overwhelmed by flash and good intentions, doesn't even come close. " ‐ Guardian

Posted Aug 6, 2013
93% The Spectacular Now (2013) "At the very least, it proves that Woodley's vulnerable performance in The Descendants was no fluke, and sets up Teller as easily one of the best actors of his age. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Jul 29, 2013
2/5 42% Red 2 (2013) " It's not the summer's laziest sequel-- that's still Grown Ups 2 by a wide margin-- but it's a comfortable second place. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Jul 18, 2013
1.5/5 7% Grown Ups 2 (2013) "Believe it or not, Grown Ups 2 is better than at least one other movie in existence, and that movie is Grown Ups. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Jul 11, 2013
3/5 72% Pacific Rim (2013) "Pacific Rim is shiny and big and eager to please, but its originality can't save it from feeling as derivative and empty as any cobbled-together remake. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

3.5/5 69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) "If endless mumbled monologues from Vin Diesel are the price to pay for watching The Rock land a leaping punch to the face, it's worth it. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted May 20, 2013

Posted May 9, 2013
3/5 54% Oblivion (2013) "Large-scale, original sci-fi is a hard thing to come by these days, and despite its familiar story Oblivion does dream up some great ideas " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted May 7, 2013
4/5 80% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) "Cianfrance creates a layered and moving portrait of working-class life, of people trying-- in many of the wrong ways-- to improve lives for themselves and the generations to come. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted May 7, 2013
4/5 87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "Take-flight moments of blockbuster bliss are frequent and consistently spectacular, as Abrams continues to prove his rare gift of combining character, plot, comedy and action into setpiece after setpiece " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted May 7, 2013
49% Pain & Gain (2013) "In walking the impossible tightrope of violent satire, Bay succeeds by calling up one of cinema's most powerful and least-understood languages: the relationship the audience has with the people onscreen before the film even begins. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
Posted Apr 26, 2013
3.5/5 48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) "Olympus Has Fallen takes a star performance and gallons of fake blood and stretches it into something both captivating and queasy. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com

Posted Feb 14, 2013
2/5 12% Safe Haven (2013) "Safe Haven doesn't have a whole lot to offer, with a plot so familiar and stars so uninterested in each other, and its resolution only undermines what it's truly best at being-- a cheap North Carolina vacation. " ‐ CinemaBlend.com
