3.8/5 78% Danny Collins (2015) "We know this movie is going to try to pull out our heartstrings, but "Danny Collins" manages to take few unexpected turns, and it makes us want to join it for the entire trip. " ‐ Schmoes Know

Posted Mar 20, 2015
2.3/5 31% Insurgent (2015) "The visuals didn't feel realistic enough to engage and overall "Insurgent" is a let down. Unless you're a hard core fan of the novels upon which it's based, I'd wait for cable. " ‐ Schmoes Know

3.5/5 79% McFarland USA (2015) "It hits all the predictable moments one might expect, but the solid acting jobs and incredible true story make "McFarland, USA" a credible sports movie that will certainly brighten your spirits. " ‐ Schmoes Know

56% Focus (2015) "Once the real game begins, the humor starts to miss and the plot points get ridiculously unbelievable. While Smith shows flashes of his classic charisma, Robbie is under-used and no one else is around to step up and make us care. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Mar 3, 2015
4.7/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) ""Kingsman" is not for the faint of heart and features some intense violenece, but it's delightful tone makes even the most sinister of acts feel like they can be avenged with a smile. " ‐ Schmoes Know

100% Game of Thrones: Season 4 Episode 2 "Do not get married on this show! Game of Thrones proves once again why it is the absolute best event on television today. No one is safe and if you think they are, they will most likely die next episode. " ‐ Schmoes Know

1.8/5 27% Annie (2014) "Another unoriginal Hollywood remake that no one really asked for. The music holds up, and it's a testament to those songs that they can withstand this misfire of a film. " ‐ Schmoes Know

Posted Oct 3, 2014
5/5 95% Whiplash (2014) "A story that is engaging throughout, and the music is perfectly employed...but it's Teller and especially Simmons who make this one of the must-see films of 2014. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Oct 3, 2014
4/5 87% The Good Lie (2014) "The most powerful scenes might be the gut-wrenching trek the Sudan people must make in search of a safer land than their war-torn home, and it adds a depth that separates "The Good Lie" from most other cinematic experiences. " ‐ Schmoes Know

Posted May 30, 2014
4.5/5 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) "It's "Aliens" meets "Groundhog Day" meets "Starship Troopers" meets "Source Code", and each of those films' best traits are expertly deployed into "Edge of Tomorrow". " ‐ Schmoes Know
