8/10 77% Noah (2014) " Though it's not without its faults, Darren Aronofsky's Noah is a powerful experience with some truly stunning scenes." — We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 20, 2014
7/10 67% Leave The World Behind (2014) " Leave The World Behind is a slightly shallow, yet still entertaining documentary about one of EDM's most influential groups." — We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 12, 2014
7/10 57% Justin Bieber's Believe (2013) " Even if it doesn't ask all the right question or provide the answers we're looking for, Justin Bieber's Believe is a perfectly harmless piece of work that will send fangirls the world over into a tizzy." — We Got This Covered
Posted Dec 25, 2013
7/10 86% Unstoppable (2010) " Unstoppable is a pure thrill ride from beginning to end. Well-staged action, strong performances and great direction make it one of the most exciting films of the year." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
3/10 46% Hereafter (2010) " Eastwood fails to infuse any moments of suspense or heart into the story and when all is said and done, Hereafter is an anticlimactic, sleepy and momentum-less mess of a film." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 64% Jackass 3 (2010) " Jackass 3D is incredibly stupid, but it's also hands down one of the funniest and most entertaining movies I've seen all year. Anyone who thinks differently just doesn't have a sense of humor and needs to lighten up a bit." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
5/10 71% Red (2010) " It delivers a few thrills here and there but ultimately a bland story and forgettable characters turn Red into a mediocre action film at best." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
6/10 67% Conviction (2010) " Conviction is way too routine, not fleshed out enough and rather uninspired. I'd recommend it for a watch just for the performances alone but that's it." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
10/10 96% The Social Network (2010) " The Social Network is a spellbinding and compelling story with top notch performances and flawless directing." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 82% Mesrine: Killer Instinct (L'instinct de mort) (2010) " Mesrine: Killer Instinct is a triumphant gangster film. It's exhilarating throughout thanks to a masterful performance by Vincent Cassel and some expertly staged action scenes. Comparing this one to Goodfellas would not be a stretch." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
4/10 22% Case 39 (2010) " Despite its initial premise showing promise, Case 39 turns out to be boring, predictable and nothing new." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
10/10 86% Inception (2010) " Inception is the best film of the year and one of the best films of the decade, this is Nolan's masterpiece and it is perfect in every regard." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
7/10 59% Centurion (2010) " Centruion is an exciting and intense action/adventure film with fantastic fight scenes and strong acting." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 41% The Expendables (2010) " What The Expendables does right is it caters to its fans. It knows exactly what they want and it delivers a a pure, adrenaline-fuelled thrill ride with some great action." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is refreshing, unique, wildly entertaining and consistently funny. I haven't had this much fun while watching a movie in a long, long time." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
7/10 64% Predators (2010) " A decent cast, great effects and costumes and satisfying blood and gore make this a pretty decent horror remake, which you don't find too often." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
3/10 66% The Karate Kid (2010) " A cliched and predictable script mixed with the miscasting of Jaden Smith make The Karate Kid a pretty dull film. Stick with the original." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
5/10 10% Grown Ups (2010) " Grown Ups is cliched, predictable and full of immature and juvenile humor. The film recycles far too many jokes and it gets old real fast." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
3/10 11% Killers (2010) " A lazy script makes for a cheesy and predictable film that features two crummy performances from stars who are hard to dislike." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 73% Get Him to the Greek (2010) " Get Him To The Greek is absolutely hilarious. With great music and amusing chemistry between the two leads, it's definitely a must-see." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
6/10 58% Shrek Forever After (2010) " Shrek Forever After is a very mediocre affair, with crummy 3D and a real lack of laughs." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
10/10 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " Genuinely moving and a beautiful farewell to a beloved series, Toy Story 3 is the must-see movie of the summer." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
6/10 79% The Other Guys (2010) " Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell have excellent chemistry, and provide for a lot of funny moments, but a poorly written plot and some forced jokes make The Other Guys only a good, not great comedy." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
4/10 42% Dinner for Schmucks (2010) " Dinner For Schmucks seems promising at first but too many plot points feel forced and the humor is too dumb to enjoy." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
4/10 62% Salt (2010) " Overly concerned with creating the next Greengrass/Damon superteam with his star Angelina Jolie, Phillip Noyce forgets to tell us just who Salt really is and thus, the film lacks the punch that it should have." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
6/10 72% Machete (2010) " Though it starts off well, Machete becomes boring and slow towards the end as Trejo's shtick starts to feel a bit stale. Still, you'll definitely find some entertainment here." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
2/10 72% The Last Exorcism (2010) " The Last Exorcism is completely boring, devoid of any scares, tension or unease and has one of the worst endings ever. Avoid at all costs." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 28% Takers (2010) " Takers is an above average heist film and while it could have benefited from an R rating, it is still one of the better movies of the summer." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
9/10 82% Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (2010) " Once again Casell is phenomenal in the role and turns the film into a compelling and gripping ending to an epic gangster flick." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
8/10 40% Due Date (2010) " Due Date is absolutely hilarious! Downey Jr. and Galifianakis are perfect together and the film is wildly entertaining." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
5/10 29% The Warrior's Way (2010) " Weak acting, unfocused directing and an overall very phoney feeling make for a film that is seriously misguided." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
7/10 49% Love and Other Drugs (2010) " Love and Other Drugs isn't a perfect film, and Zwick has certainly done better, but for what it is, it's mostly watchable and fairly enjoyable." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
5/10 9% Saw 3D (2010) " If you've been disappointed with the way the series has been going up until this point, Saw 3D isn't exactly going to change how you feel. " — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 9, 2013
7/10 38% Casino Jack (2010) " Casino Jack is a funny and enjoyable film with great performances." — We Got This Covered
Posted Nov 3, 2013
10/10 68% Disconnect (2013) " Disconnect is disturbing and haunting, but most of all, it's an immensely compelling and taut thriller." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 22, 2013
5/10 41% All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2013) " If all the boys really do love Mandy Lane, I must be the exception." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 18, 2013
10/10 96% Enough Said (2013) " The combination of Julia Louis-Dreyfus's comedic strengths with Nicole Holofcener's graceful style and James Gandolfini's quiet charm makes Enough Said a sad, sweet, and beautiful story of love at middle age." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 9, 2013
7/10 75% The Green Inferno (2014) " A very slow start threatens to derail The Green Inferno, but once the terror begins, it never lets up and Roth once again proves why he's a master of horror." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 9, 2013
7/10 85% Only Lovers Left Alive (2014) " Only Lovers Left Alive offers an intelligent twist on the vampire subgenre, even if it does become a bit too moody and mellow for its own good." — We Got This Covered
Posted Sep 5, 2013
9/10 91% The Fighter (2010) " Superb performances and a well told story make The Fighter one of the year's best films." — We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 11, 2013
9/10 96% True Grit (2010) " Fantastic performances all around, great dialogue and damn fine filmmaking make this one of the best of the year." — We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 11, 2013
7/10 49% No Strings Attached (2011) " While it's not without problems, No Strings Attached is a romantic comedy worth watching, and that's saying a lot. Every member of the cast lights up the screen with humor and charm and there are a lot of genuinely funny moments." — We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 11, 2013
8/10 67% The Company Men (2011) " Amazing acting backed up by an authentic and emotionally engaging story makes The Company Men one of the best films of the year." — We Got This Covered
Posted Aug 11, 2013
5/10 19% Just Go with It (2011) " The silly story and crummy writing leave Just Go With It feeling a bit unfinished and never quite hitting the right level, like a haphazard hodgepodge of poor ideas." — We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
5/10 55% Unknown (2011) " As the film progresses, it becomes incomprehensible. The twists are too preposterous and the plot holes are too plentiful, making Unknown an absolute mess." — We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
8/10 68% Black Death (2011) " In Black Death, Christopher Smith effectively creates a creepy and unsettling atmosphere with great production values. He shows lots of potential as a director and I'm looking forward to seeing what he does next." — We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
7/10 41% HappyThankYouMorePlease (2011) " Happythankyoumoreplease is a charming and refreshing romantic comedy. Radnor is great in the role and provides an uplifting and enjoyable film." — We Got This Covered
Posted Jul 24, 2013
4/10 72% Rio (2011) " While it may entertain the kiddies for a while, for the older folks out there (and that means anyone 10+), Rio is just another animated yawner." — We Got This Covered
Posted Apr 21, 2013
7/10 65% Daydream Nation (2011) " All three leads do a good job and the film is visually appealing. As a director, Goldbach shows promise." — We Got This Covered
Posted Mar 25, 2013
6/10 34% The Hangover Part II (2011) " The cast is once again at the top of their game and there are some genuinely hilarious moments, but on the whole, The Hangover Part II is way too similar to the first film to be enjoyable." — We Got This Covered
