9/10 81% Deadpool (2016) "With Fox's Deadpool movie, a new superhero icon has been born, and he just tea-bagged us all. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 6, 2016
7/10 No Score Yet Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland "The Rise Of Thadland heroically invests in throwing the party of the century, delivering unholy amounts of sex, drugs, more sex, more drugs, a Mojito hot tub, and sex while on drugs. Translation: this may not be for everyone. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 4, 2016
7/10 79% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "Hail, Caesar!? More like "Hail, Channing!" - am I right? " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 3, 2016
4/10 No Score Yet Uncaged "It's an unfortunate situation when the best looking effects are on a film's DVD cover. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 2, 2016
5/10 No Score Yet All Hallows' Eve 2 "All Hallows Eve 2 is a horror anthology with the right spirit, but well-wishing only gets you so far. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/10 7% Fifty Shades of Black (2016) "I didn't like Fifty Shades Of Black, and I really just want to move on with my life. End of story. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 30, 2016
8/10 67% Eddie The Eagle (2016) "Eddie The Eagle is a crowd-pleasing triumph about one of Britain's lesser-known Olympic heroes, and the dream he wouldn't let die. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 29, 2016
6/10 59% The Finest Hours (2016) "The Finest Hours chugs along with purpose, but could have been a much more thrilling rescue if it had a tighter focus on the seafaring action. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 28, 2016
8/10 60% Carnage Park "Carnage Park delivers the thrill-ride such a twisted title suggests, as Mickey Keating's gun-slinging abandon paints the California desert a unique shade of red. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 27, 2016
5/10 No Score Yet The Veil "The Veil's constant visual greyness highlights the mundane nature of this supernatural cultism flick, even in recognizing Thomas Jane's wonderfully demented antagonist. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 25, 2016
2/10 29% The Boy (2016) "The Boy is wooden, lifeless, and blankly unterrifying - and no, I'm not describing the doll. I'm talking about the actual movie. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 23, 2016
7/10 41% Synchronicity (2016) "Synchronicity is a methodically paced excursion into a thrilling sci-fi experience, winning over audiences with passionate genre charms. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 20, 2016
4/10 5% Martyrs (2016) "Martyrs is the exact movie we feared it'd be - a forgettable remake of a far more prolific foreign success story. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 20, 2016
5/10 No Score Yet Two Rabbits (2 Coelhos) (2016) "2 Rabbits is the kind of movie that keeps rocketing forward as you hold on for dear life, never stopping to let you catch up. I, myself, got lost towards the end, but maybe you'll have a better grip? " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 19, 2016
6/10 53% Jeruzalem (2016) "JeruZalem is a biblical nightmare set in an inherently characteristic locale, and while generic found footage methods are used, there's still enough here for horror fans to enjoy (or fear). " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 18, 2016
7/10 43% Intruders (2016) "Intruders blends a few horror subgenres to create something complex and engrossing, all while wearing influences from Adam Wingard like a badge of pride. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 13, 2016
5/10 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) "Ride Along 2 may be a little bit funnier, but its formulaic buddy-cop plot doesn't stretch to be a bigger, more ambitious sequel in any sense. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 13, 2016
5/10 92% The Treasure (2016) "The Treasure is a one-note film that's a dry, bleak endeavor, devoid of character and lacking personality. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 8, 2016
5/10 11% The Forest (2016) "The Forest is an almost passable thriller that wants to freak your mind, but a heavy-handed focus on cheap scares prevents it from doing so. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 7, 2016
5/10 40% The Abandoned (2016) "The Abandoned is a steadfast and creepy haunted flick, until the final five minutes sink the entire production. It'll work for some, but sadly not for most. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 7, 2016
4/10 14% Cherry Tree (2016) "Cherry Tree is a story of witchcraft that's stuck on fast-forward as it zooms ahead with a disappointing attention to plotting (in favor of gore and centipedes). " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 6, 2016
5/10 18% Diablo (2016) "Diablo is an under-90-minute movie that feels doubly long, bringing you face-to-face with the Devil, but taking its sweet time to get there (unfortunately). " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Jan 5, 2016
4/10 No Score Yet Old 37 (2015) "The promise of an all-star horror teaming is lost in this slasher throwback to better times, as kills are traded for fluidity and detailing. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 23, 2015
5/10 31% Daddy's Home (2015) "Daddy's Home is the uncool stepfather who just never fits in - except he doesn't try very hard, and accepts being second-rate. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 23, 2015
6/10 63% Concussion (2015) "Concussion is more a field goal than a touchdown - Landesman walks away with points, but there's a larger score left on the field. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 16, 2015
8/10 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "The Hateful Eight's powder-keg first half ignites in a second half that's built on all of Tarantino's hallmarks, exploding in one fiery ball of tension, thrills and enigmatic storytelling with a snowy western twist. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 15, 2015
9/10 88% The Big Short (2015) "A no-bullshit, consistently engaging piece of cinema that's as poignant as it is entertaining, shining a uniquely cynical light on a low point in America's financial history. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 10, 2015
6/10 31% Don Verdean (2015) "Don Verdean is the most restrained Hess movie to date, but whether or not that's a good thing is to be decided individually among viewers. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 9, 2015
6/10 50% Uncle Nick (2015) "Uncle Nick isn't as off-putting as its disgruntled lead, but unbalanced dark humor and disturbed storytelling don't do much for this alternative holiday disaster. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 4, 2015
7/10 82% The Revenant (2015) "While Leo crawls his way towards Oscar gold, The Revenant gets lost in a beautifully snow-blind bleakness that runs far longer than necessary. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 4, 2015
8/10 65% Krampus (2015) "Michael Dougherty has another holiday horror hit on his hands in Krampus, a film packed with gleeful Christmas carnage, sweet sentiments, and a few mischievous minions who bring our tinsel-covered nightmares to life. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 3, 2015
7/10 29% Submerged (2015) "Submerged is a whole mess of tension primed to leave viewers in an anxiety-induced pile of helplessness, which means it does its job pretty damn well. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 26, 2015
7/10 77% The Good Dinosaur (2015) "The Good Dinosaur is a darker, more relentless type of Pixar film that doesn't break Pixar's typical storytelling mold, but the most important beats are all still present. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 24, 2015
7/10 44% Dangerous Men (2015) "Emotionless reaction shots, zero characterization, guns that have absolutely no special effects when blasted - Dangerous Men is rare winning dish from a one star restaurant. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 22, 2015
5/10 50% #Horror (2015) "#Horror has plenty to say about cyberbullying, but it gets lost in frantic editing and bitchy stereotypes along the way. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 19, 2015
7/10 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is the least YA of all the franchise's films, and represents a dark yet mature finish to Katniss' ever-evolving journey. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 18, 2015
5/10 60% Flutter (2015) "Flutter seems like a safe bet, but its flimsy structure crumbles like a house of cards caught in a strong breeze. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 17, 2015
2.5/5 85% He Never Died (2015) "Herein lies the problem -- can you really get excited about a character who can't seem to die? " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 17, 2015
9/10 63% The Funhouse Massacre (2015) "The Funhouse Massacre is a charismatic sideshow from Hell that horror fans shouldn't miss. You'll laugh, you'll scream, and you'll have an absolute blast with each scare zone that this killer attraction has to offer. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 15, 2015
7/10 79% Entertainment (2015) "A Greek tragedy told through the vessel of a small-time comedian, Entertainment is a bleak look into a broken man swallowed-up by second-rate showbusiness. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 14, 2015
4/10 25% Condemned (2015) "There are some likenesses to Troma's low-budget brand here, but not enough to carve out a unique voice for Condemned's brand of claustrophobic anarchy. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 12, 2015
5/10 31% By The Sea (2015) "The problem is not that By The Sea is a vanity project, it's that By The Sea drags, feels inconsequential, and fails to make use of strong leading performances and a passionate core. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 11, 2015
3/5 68% Miss You Already (2015) "Miss You Already possesses a chemistry that's worthy enough for those in the mood for a downish-note friendship drama, but it's an experience I'll probably never subject myself to again - a strange sign of approval, but approval nonetheless. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 6, 2015
6/10 44% Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015) "Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse ain't your daddy's zombie movie - quite literally. It's a genre film built for younger audiences who will embrace every moment of the dub-stepping chaos, but might not be suited for more refined tastes. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 29, 2015
5/10 13% Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (2015) "Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension is definitely not the ending we deserve to one of this generation's longest-running ghost/witch/demon narratives. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 23, 2015
5/10 18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) "It's funny how Jem And The Holograms speaks volumes about individuality, yet, at its core, comes across as generically lackluster as any Disney Channel special might. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 22, 2015
4/10 No Score Yet Tremors 5: Bloodlines (2015) "Tremors 5: Bloodlines is the beyond-generic reboot that may just bury this franchise once and for all. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 21, 2015
5/10 69% Crimson Peak (2015) "Crimson Peak is gorgeous, there's no denying that fact, but del Toro's Gothic facade hides a hollow, unbalanced foundation that begins to crumble under such immense visual weight. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 15, 2015
6/10 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "Bridge Of Spies is a historical retelling flavored like murky potato stew, but it's still a Spielberg production, and for that, we leave enlightened by the Hollywoodized wonders of wartime espionage. " ‐ We Got This Covered
Posted Oct 14, 2015
6/10 79% Tales of Halloween "Every short may not be a winner (like all anthology films), but Tales Of Halloween is a unique little indie treat worth a light-hearted holiday watch this October. " ‐ We Got This Covered
