4/10 No Score Yet The God Cells (2016) "If stem cell therapy is as good as he says, one wonders why we are not hearing more about it from the rest of the world where, unlike in the United States, the therapy is legal. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted May 28, 2016
7/10 18% The Curse of Sleeping Beauty (2016) "a fresh idea in a genre where too many ideas are overused and stale. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted May 5, 2016
1 /10 30% Sacrifice (2016) "Medical thriller that frequently appears inspired by THE WICKER MAN and perhaps THE STEPFORD WIVES " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews

6/10 63% Dough (2016) "There is little here to laugh out loud about, but there are some warm moments. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Apr 22, 2016
5/10 30% Love Thy Nature (2016) "all too much of the message is laced with New Age ideas, some of which are actually dangerous. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews

6/10 No Score Yet Sholay (1975) "Though it may seem uneven... parts of it are excellent. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Apr 18, 2016
5/10 24% Camino (2016) "The film is neither as serious nor as entertaining as it was trying to be. The road in CAMINO is one well-traveled. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Mar 20, 2016
7/10 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "This is a taut film that flips reality and tears up your expectations of where to think the film is going. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Mar 16, 2016
6/10 17% A Country Called Home (2016) "There is not a lot in the plot that is surprising or even original. There is some wit and there is a not too unrealistic look at strained family relationships. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Mar 8, 2016
7/10 94% Colliding Dreams (2016) "In fact, there is little emphasis on the "Arab dream" and considerably more on the dream of a Jewish homeland. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Feb 27, 2016
8/10 60% Admiral (Michiel de Ruyter) (2016) "The dialog talks down a little to the viewers who are intended in large part to be school students, but it pays the viewer back in thrilling visual images. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Feb 16, 2016
6/10 43% Forsaken (2016) "FORSAKEN does not bring much that is new to the Western, but it is nice that it brings a Western at all. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Feb 12, 2016
6/10 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "several humdrum stories do not make for a compelling overall plot. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Feb 9, 2016
6/10 20% Durant's Never Closes "Rather than having a plot, the film takes the form of a collection of vignettes and short stories--not all believable--woven into a minimalist account. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 15, 2016
4/10 55% Jeruzalem (2016) "The Paz Brothers apparently had some good ideas of what to put into a horror film, but not much new in how to make that film. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 15, 2016
7/10 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "as long as the viewer does not need to contend with Jar-Jar Binks or a pod race, any Star Wars film delivers more than a ticket's worth of entertainment. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 8, 2016
4/10 92% Anomalisa (2015) "Somehow the animation really does nothing for this story that live actors could not. The characters may be made out of plastic, but they remain wooden. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 8, 2016
8/10 93% Sicario (2015) "SICARIO is playing in theaters opposite SPECTRE and generally is the same genre of film, but there is no doubt that SICARIO has a better and more relevant story with more believable characters. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2016
7/10 79% Macbeth (2015) "This film is heavy into style and it was a style that will have selective appeal. But the story is strong enough to hold the audience captive with what is, as comes as no surprise, a good " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jan 1, 2016
7/10 88% Turbo Kid (2015) "TURBO KID is campy fun as a reminder of the films kids liked some three decades ago. It has the magic to turn "are you kidding?" into "that was fun." " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Dec 13, 2015
9/10 76% Trumbo (2015) "For a film on a relatively serious subject there is surprising wit and suspense in this story of reluctant heroes. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Dec 7, 2015
6/10 73% Suffragette (2015) "The cause is great, but the film account in SUFFRAGETTE is tepid and rather by-the-numbers. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Dec 3, 2015
7/10 97% Brooklyn (2015) "The plot of BROOKLYN is simple--perhaps too simple to justify the high production values. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews

6/10 60% Flutter (2015) "Fans of Roald Dahl will enjoy a story that could have easily come from his pen. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Nov 12, 2015
8/10 65% Spectre (2015) "The script is dark and occasionally confusing and muddled, but it is the most ambitious plotting of any Bond film. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Nov 11, 2015
6/10 53% Woman in Gold (2015) "Perhaps the film has problems in the casting. This should be a story to ignite the anger of the audience. Helen Mirren is too reserved to do that and Ryan Reynolds is just plain wooden. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Nov 9, 2015
7/10 89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) "a Western that is also a comedy until the good humor runs out and what is left turns into a grim horror film. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Nov 4, 2015

9/10 92% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "The best of the writing in BEASTS OF NO NATION shows up near the end of the film when the commandant tells his men about the alternatives to the combative life style he has chosen. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Oct 22, 2015
6/10 70% Crimson Peak (2015) "It is beautiful to watch until it jumps off the rails and goes over the top. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Oct 20, 2015
9/10 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Its thrills come not from the barrel of a gun or master martial artists jumping from building to building. Instead it is about a plain lawyer doing his job and somewhat more than his job. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Oct 19, 2015
9/10 92% The Martian (2015) "Weir proves you do not have to bend the laws of science to tell a good science fiction story. This is the most gripping film of the year so far. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Oct 4, 2015
7/10 29% Reversion (2015) "The biggest weakness of the film is to not look at the societal implications of this new technology. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews

Posted Oct 3, 2015

7/10 No Score Yet Dusty's Trail: Summit of Borneo (2013) "this film is unintentionally but impressively a tribute to Jayasuriya's spirit " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 26, 2015
7/10 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) "As a silent the film is almost entirely limited to sight gags, and they come thick and fast. And most of the gags work. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 21, 2015
8/10 78% Blood Punch (2015) "This is a crime, drug, dark-comedy, romance, horror, and science fiction thriller. There are far too few of those around. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 21, 2015
7/10 No Score Yet Message From Hiroshima "This account breathes life into the memories of a culture that died the instant the Atomic Age was born. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 9, 2015
5/10 29% Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism (2015) "There are too few films that aim for a female young teen market. The stories covered may well charm girls growing to young adulthood. But beyond that demographic this film may not be greatly rewarding. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 9, 2015
7/10 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "I have never been fond of Tom Cruise, but one must admit what he does he does well. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Aug 6, 2015
7/10 47% Dark Was The Night (2015) "The characters and their attitudes are more than just the mortar to hold the horror scenes together. Credible and involving. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jul 20, 2015
7/10 43% 10 Cent Pistol (2015) "Brutal and bloody, the narrative of his new film follows a twisted plot forward and backward in time, throwing off the viewer just when he thinks he has it understood. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jul 17, 2015
6/10 74% The Outrageous Sophie Tucker (2015) "portrait of an indomitable woman, punctuated with her songs and her monologues " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jul 17, 2015
7/10 80% Advantageous (2015) "ADVANTAGEOUS is a science fiction film with a much higher budget for art direction than it has for special effects. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jul 14, 2015
7/10 No Score Yet Caffeinated (2015) "a scattershot but loving look at coffee, its growers, its merchants, its coffee bars, its baristas, its fans who get a transcendental experience from coffee, and the exploitation of its producers. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jul 14, 2015
9/10 98% Inside Out (2015) "If you get tired of the ideas whizzing around you, you can just sit back and enjoy it as a pretty good Pixar animated comedy. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
Posted Jun 24, 2015
6/10 72% Jurassic World (2015) "re-used dinosaurs and re-used plot. But most of us can always enjoy watching the dinosaurs. " ‐ Mark Leeper's Reviews
