Posted Apr 25, 2014
2/5 19% Transcendence (2014) " They must've titled this movie with total irony, because Transcendence stumbles hard in its attempt to rise above. " ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2.5/5 73% Oculus (2014) " The unique stylistic approach to haunted house horror will be a novelty to fans of the genre - just don't be disappointed when it all ends with a fizzle instead of a bang. " ‐ ScreenRant

Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " Falls short of matching the simple pleasure of the first installment, but for action fans, there is still plenty of next-level choreography work present in Evans' sequel. " ‐ ScreenRant

Posted Dec 6, 2013
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a much-improved sequel whose only real drawback is that it's a middle chapter - with a somewhat thin payoff. " ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2/5 No Score Yet The Upper Footage (2013) " The debate surrounding The Upper Footage (is it real or is it fake?) far outclasses the experience of actually watching the film. But therein lies the hook. " ‐ ScreenRant

Posted Oct 25, 2013
2/5 49% Escape Plan (2013) " A shoddy, silly, testosterone-fueled action film throwback, which teeters between clever self parody and an embarrassingly bad attempt to create an actual action blockbuster. " ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 18, 2013

Posted Aug 23, 2013
3/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " An otherwise standard action film with B-movie feel, Kick-Ass 2 is a 'good' but not 'great' followup to the surprisingly smart, stylish and witty original. " ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 17, 2013
2.5/5 68% Elysium (2013) " Elysium presents vivid and grounded sci-fi realness in a clumsy story full of unconvincing characters - resulting in an interesting but conflicted movie experience. " ‐ 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 85% 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
