4.5/5 81% Me & Earl & the Dying Girl (2015) "Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has directed a touching movie that will indeed tug on your heartstrings, but in such a unique way that it feels like the very first time. " ‐ Schmoes Know

3.5/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) " It can't be the amazing revelation the first film was, but "Jurassic World" is a great amusement park ride...and the best sequel to it's predecessor we've had. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Jun 12, 2015
2.5/5 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) " It's not a disaster by any means, it's simply just a sequel that could have been better, but couldn't quite find the pitch. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted May 15, 2015
4.8/5 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "The audience feels transported to this post-apocalyptic setting, and the mind-blowing action sequences rival any that have ever been put to film. George Miller does a magnificent job in recapturing the feel of his beloved "Mad Max" franchise. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted May 15, 2015
3.7/5 51% Maggie (2015) "It's a slow burn here, and occasionally it flirts with boredom, but "Maggie" still is a worthy endeavor for fans to see a new side of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenneger. " ‐ Schmoes Know

2.4/5 54% The Age of Adaline (2015) "It does manage to pick up the pace in the third act and actually get us somewhat invested, but by that time we've already seen too much. It's certainly watchable, but best to wait until it's free to do so. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Apr 24, 2015
3.8/5 77% 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
1.7/5 17% The Gunman (2015) "It misleads audiences hoping for a girtty action thriller and ends up being a huge disappointment. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Mar 20, 2015
2.3/5 30% 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

Posted Mar 6, 2015
2.3/5 11% Unfinished Business (2015) " Going through the motions and never uncovering any funny material to play with, "Unfinished Business" is just that: a film that had loads of potential but isn't able to muster any laughs with it. " ‐ Schmoes Know
Posted Mar 6, 2015

Posted Mar 6, 2015
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
Posted Mar 3, 2015
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

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 88% 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 Oct 3, 2014
