Posted Mar 6, 2014
8.7/10 88% The Wind Rises (2014) " The film doesn't take the obvious moralistic steps that could avert backlash - it's pure Miyazaki, a perspective influenced by history and reflective of a 50-year career. " — IGN Movies
Posted Feb 28, 2014

Posted Feb 21, 2014
7.7/10 53% Jimmy P. (2014) " The fine lead performances by Benicio del Toro and Mathieu Amalric are the highlights of the artfully crafted, fact-based drama Jimmy P., which tries (sometimes in vain) to make psychotherapy cinematically intriguing." — IGN Movies

Posted Nov 27, 2013
5/10 42% Oldboy (2013) " Lee tosses in tones of every color, over-the-top gags coupled with acts of horrific moments of violence. It's occasionally jarring, but the cultural stew cooks too long." — GeekNation
Posted Nov 27, 2013
4/10 42% Homefront (2013) " 'Homefront' believes it's cut from the same cloth as Walter Hill's 'Southern Comfort,' but it can barely muster up the thrills of an episode of 'MacGuyver.'" — ScreenCrush
Posted Nov 25, 2013

Posted Sep 19, 2013
2/5 71% Newlyweeds (2013) " Newlyweeds looks and sounds primo. Storytelling-wise, however, it's more than one toke over the line." — Time Out New York
