Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
4/5 55% Man of Steel (2013) " A satisfying blockbuster with real-world sensibility and sci-fi fantasy, Man of Steel deserves to be the iconic Superman movie for a new generation. " — ScreenRant
Posted Jun 14, 2013
2/5 72% Wish You Were Here (2013) " Wish You Were Here is best enjoyed by fans of the actors involved or "strangers in a strange land" flicks; it'll be less satisfying to those looking for drama/mystery." — ScreenRant
Posted Jun 7, 2013
4/5 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) " Much Ado About Nothing is a faithful, pleasant and enjoyable small-scale production of Shakespeare's tale. If you are in for the experiment, you'll likely be charmed." — ScreenRant
Posted Jun 7, 2013
3.5/5 38% The Purge (2013) " Despite some cliched horror characters and tropes, The Purge is recommendable to those who like the short, sweet, and cathartic violent enjoyment of a solid thriller." — ScreenRant
Posted Jun 7, 2013
3/5 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) " Best enjoyed by loyal fans who want to see the end of the Wolfpack saga - as viewers looking for a bigger (and better) set of laughs might be disappointed." — ScreenRant
Posted May 24, 2013
4/5 49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " The Great Gatsby offers a mix of old Hollywood grandeur and new Hollywood edge (for better or worse) that helps expand on themes in Fitzgerald's seminal novel." — ScreenRant
Posted May 10, 2013
3.5/5 98% Mud (2013) " Mud is a potent and earnest rumination on love and change that gets muddled by moments of overblown as well as scattered storytelling." — ScreenRant
Posted May 3, 2013
4/5 68% Disconnect (2013) " By the end of Disconnect, the destination may not be as satisfying as it could've been (or initially seemed to be), but the journey often is." — ScreenRant
Posted Apr 12, 2013
3.5/5 62% Evil Dead (2013) " Remakes don't get much better than Evil Dead - in terms of revitalizing the franchise and servicing both veteran and newcomer viewers." — ScreenRant
Posted Apr 5, 2013
3/5 81% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " Place Beyond the Pines manages to illustrate the ravages of family and legacy almost as effectively as Blue Valentine did the ravages of romantic connection." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 29, 2013
2/5 28% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) " G.I. Joe: Retaliation is bargain-basement blockbuster entertainment but some people will enjoy it for the brainless popcorn entertainment it is." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 29, 2013
3/5 38% Admission (2013) " When Admission is over, you're left with the feeling that you've seen something whole, complete, and enjoyable - albeit not all that memorable." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 22, 2013
3.5/5 70% The Croods (2013) " The narrative execution in The Croods isn't the greatest but the experience of the journey is - for the most part - worth the slightly meandering path it takes." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 22, 2013
2.5/5 43% The Call (2013) " The Call is a mix of good and bad elements that still manages to accomplish the primary task: delivering good thrills." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 15, 2013
3/5 38% Dead Man Down (2013) " Dead Man Down is two-thirds of a film for the arthouse/indie crowd with a third leftover for the mindless action-lover." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 8, 2013
3.5/5 69% Stoker (2013) " Those hoping for a thrilling mystery will find that Stoker is not that at all, as it explicitly reveals its true intentions in ways you're not likely to forget." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 1, 2013
1.5/5 16% The Last Exorcism Part II (2013) " A ridiculous sequel whose hackneyed plot and mundane direction undermine anything even remotely innovative or exciting about the original Last Exorcism." — ScreenRant
Posted Mar 1, 2013
2.5/5 39% Dark Skies (2013) " Dark Skies is a good time but hardcore fans of horror and/or sci-fi are not likely to be satisfied with the half bits the film provides." — ScreenRant
Posted Feb 23, 2013
2/5 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) " The title A Good Day to Die Hard is not just a name, it's a proclamation that this series is now ready for the graveyard." — ScreenRant
Posted Feb 14, 2013
2/5 19% Identity Thief (2013) " Identity Thief is an odd mix of edginess, slapstick, and serious drama that is only occasionally satisfying." — ScreenRant
Posted Feb 8, 2013
3/5 46% Bullet to the Head (2013) " Bullet to the Head fires ahead with its intended mission of mayhem - and you get the feeling it could care less about what you think of it." — ScreenRant
Posted Feb 1, 2013
2/5 4% Movie 43 (2013) " Movie 43 could never hope to achieve anything above the very low bar it sets for itself - but it comes close to maintaining that low standard throughout." — ScreenRant
Posted Jan 25, 2013
2.5/5 65% Mama (2013) " Despite fizzling into conventional drama, much of Mama is pretty creepy." — ScreenRant
Posted Jan 18, 2013
1.5/5 28% Broken City (2013) " Broken City is only worthwhile for die-hard fans of the actors involved or those who don't need a clear narrative to enjoy a gritty odyssey through the NYC underbelly. " — ScreenRant
Posted Jan 18, 2013
4.5/5 93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) " The climax is one of the biggest headlines of the 21st century but Zero Dark Thirty will still leave viewers feeling in need of a shower and calming drink by its end." — ScreenRant
Posted Jan 11, 2013
4/5 70% Les Misérables (2012) " Is Les Miserables perfect? No. Is it worthy of the word 'classic'? Perhaps in some circles. Still, it's a gorgeous, well-executed (but at times lukewarm) film." — ScreenRant
Posted Dec 25, 2012
3/5 51% This is 40 (2012) " Apatow has clearly put a lot of his own heart, mind, (family) and screen time into examining this specific area of life - which is both a gift and a curse for the movie." — ScreenRant
Posted Dec 21, 2012
3.5/5 75% Killing Them Softly (2012) " Slower and more 'talky' than most mob movies, Killing Them Softly nonetheless offers a lot intriguing visual stimuli and food for thought." — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 30, 2012
4.5/5 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) " Silver Linings Playbook paves a highly entertaining road to recovery for its characters - one you will be glad to have helped sponsor." — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 21, 2012
4/5 87% Life of Pi (2012) " Life of Pi stands as an applaudable achievement for Ang Lee, Suraj Sharma, the 3D format and the technical artists who created Richard Parker." — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 21, 2012
2.5/5 12% Red Dawn (2012) " More of an overly-fantastical propaganda action film than the serious war drama the original aspired to be." — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 21, 2012
4/5 90% Lincoln (2012) " Lincoln is easily recommendable to those looking for an intriguing and wittily-humorous look at a very pivotal (and still very relevant) point in U.S. history" — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 9, 2012
2/5 49% The Man With the Iron Fists (2012) " Only for those who love their martial arts flicks no matter how cheesy or silly - or those who love the (sometimes discordant) mix of Asian and hip-hop culture." — ScreenRant
Posted Nov 2, 2012
4.5/5 66% Cloud Atlas (2012) " If there was ever a movie that truly engaged the viewer, Cloud Atlas is it." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 28, 2012
2/5 12% Alex Cross (2012) " Alex Cross fits in lock-and-step with the other entries on director Rob Cohen's resume: thin, B-movie genre entertainment." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 19, 2012
4/5 96% Argo (2012) " Affleck successfully uses history to tap into very real fears (both personal and political) about what may come tomorrow." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 12, 2012
4/5 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " Frankenweenie is a welcome return to form for Burton, and a bonafide good time at the movies for the old, young, and everybody in between." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 5, 2012
5/5 85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) " Hyped as one of the most thrilling and enjoyable action movies to come along in the last decade, this is one of the rare occasions where the hype is actually well deserved." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3/5 25% Wrath of the Titans (2012) " Wrath of the Titans is a welcome improvement but if you didn't like the first film, this sequel is not going to reverse your negative opinion." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
4/5 43% American Reunion (2012) " By the end, viewers will likely be ready for another slice of some American Pie before another decade has passed." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
2.5/5 51% The Three Stooges (2012) " Stooges will resonate strongly or not at all, depending on the viewer. But a Jersey Shore experience is about where the film falls short of honorable intentions." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3.5/5 83% Comic-Con: Episode IV - A Fan's Hope (2012) " Best suited to those curious about the convention and/or culture - or those who already embrace it and just want to relive the experience before the next 'Con comes." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
4.5/5 95% Marley (2012) " Viewers will walk away knowing Bob Marley in much more intimate and accurate fashion, rather than the specious, superficial or incomplete picture they may have had before." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3.5/5 53% Think Like a Man (2012) " The movie does provide plenty to chew on and the respective story arcs are executed well enough to make the overall journey worthwhile." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3/5 57% Safe (2012) " It ain't too smart, it ain't too sophisticated, but it does have its charm and is entertaining enough for what it is: an action-packed, B-movie experience." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3.5/5 74% Sound of My Voice (2012) " Sound of My Voice is an interesting approach to indie sci-fi and a solid introduction to Batmanglij and Marling as bright new talents." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
4.5/5 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) " Was Marvel's ambitious dream for a shared cinematic universe truly worth it? In my opinion: Most definitely." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3.5/5 81% Get the Gringo (2012) " Gibson, for all his offscreen controversy, still has his star-quality charisma, and Grunberg is a worthy protege for the Oscar-winning writer/actor/director." — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
2/5 67% The Road (2012) " Laranas definitely has the mind and vision for good horror, but still has a bit to go before he can be called a 'master of the genre.'" — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3/5 57% The Dictator (2012) " A sly/insightful portrait that the comedian has already painted, and re-painted, and painted again. How many examples of the same idea can he successfully convey on film?" — ScreenRant
Posted Oct 2, 2012
3/5 34% Battleship (2012) " Battleship is a movie that is enjoyable beyond expectation, but doesn't offer much more than the fast-food-style fun of a summer movie spectacle." — ScreenRant
