55/100 58% Southpaw (2015) "Southpaw doesn't give you that thrill and because of that it can throw a few good punches, but it never lands a KO. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jul 24, 2015
77/100 79% Ant-Man (2015) "It's exactly what the MCU needs right now: a creative dose of fun. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jul 17, 2015
58/100 14% The Gallows (2015) "Let's just say it's fine to see once, but not worth hanging around. That's some gallows humor, right there. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jul 10, 2015
4/5 27% Terminator Genisys (2015) "It's an interesting commentary on itself that many seem to have missed, dismissing the movie as overly complex, but it smartly tells you exactly how to enjoy this film: keep moving and don't look back. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Jul 5, 2015
50/100 64% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "If you want abs, strippers, thrusting loins and more dollar bills than you've ever seen before in a movie then Magic Mike XXL delivers. It's just too bad it couldn't deliver the entire package (pun totally intended). " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jul 2, 2015
92/100 98% Inside Out (2015) "So there are some words on Inside Out. They're OK. I still don't think I got it right. I guess the only words I really need to write are: see this movie. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 19, 2015
50/100 32% Entourage (2015) "There's nothing wrong with a film for the fans, unless you're not one. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 5, 2015
35/100 50% San Andreas (2015) "San Andreas just wants to show destruction and it wants you to revel in it. That's nearly impossible given the timing of the release and the fact that reveling in nothing but glorified destruction got old at least five years ago. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 29, 2015
48/100 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Great films have meaning to their message, all Tomorrowland does is shout from the mountain top that we're doing it all wrong. Well, Brad Bird, so are you. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 21, 2015
91/100 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "In a world of action cinema that is becoming more cookie cutter and glossy via every superhero sequel and young adult adaptation Mad Max: Fury Road is a breath of old air. The kind of R-rated action that's gritty, dirty and non-stop. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 14, 2015
72/100 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "It's one you're going to want to see because when it shines, it shines bright, but Avengers: Age of Ultron is just a little worrying that the universe is already buckling under its own weight. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Apr 30, 2015
79/100 81% Furious 7 (2015) "Furious 7 is everything you expect it to be. An over-the-top car chase film jam packed with fist fights, gun battles, insanely awesome set pieces and lots of dialog about family. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Apr 3, 2015
31/100 25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "Dear Diary, Channing Tatum is soooo cute. I wish he'd play a werewolf and fight vampires and wear eyeliner and no shirt. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Feb 6, 2015
35/100 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "Do not pay for this movie, do not rent this movie, but if, late one night, you find yourself flipping through channels and you see Jennifer Lopez in her underwear getting it on with a walking, talking six-pack stick around and have some fun. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jan 23, 2015
48 34% Blackhat (2015) "Like a bad thriller trying to be a Michael Mann film " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jan 16, 2015
75/100 73% American Sniper (2015) "American Sniper hits on the sniper part of its title, but sadly forgets to talk about the American. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Dec 26, 2014
50/100 51% Unbroken (2014) "A paint by numbers retelling of a fantastic story that pulls at the heartstrings with cliche rather than true emotion. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Dec 24, 2014
94/100 99% Selma (2015) "What matters is that a film about a protest in 1965 is powerfully relevant to today and should be required viewing for the year. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Dec 24, 2014
51/100 50% Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014) "The movie itself is harmless and needless and would have been forgotten by the ages if it weren't for the fact that it gave us one last chance to remember something greater. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Dec 19, 2014
55/100 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The movie is a visual triumph as all of the films have been, but pretty pictures only get you so far, and with five other films full of pretty Middle Earth pictures they garner even less distance here. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Dec 17, 2014
3/5 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "In this day and age we get big and brash every other week from our movies so you better have something else to back it up. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Dec 12, 2014
5/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "Mockingjay succeeds where the book failed " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Nov 21, 2014
81/100 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "More Baymax, please " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Nov 7, 2014
4/5 71% Interstellar (2014) "The most brilliant editing of the year revs you up as it interlaces the apex of story lines, and then explodes into a giant orgasm of emotional and physical movie making only to roll over, light a cigarette and stop paying attention to you. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Nov 5, 2014
4/5 29% Annabelle (2014) "Annabelle knows how to play with its toys. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Oct 3, 2014
4/5 61% The Equalizer (2014) "It helps to have Denzel Washington delivering your one-liners and threats, but the real charm of The Equalizer is not that it is better than it should be, but that it is exactly how it should be. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Sep 29, 2014
37/100 35% The November Man (2014) "Even more disastrous is the film's treatment of women who are seen almost entirely as either sex objects or foils for men to play off of. A woman's only use in this film is to advance the plot by making mistakes. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Aug 28, 2014
25/100 18% When The Game Stands Tall (2014) "When the Game Stands Tall is a mess of a film that gets lost in its inability to tell a single story. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Aug 22, 2014
3/5 43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) "The film just falls flat, which is ironic since the 3D looks stunning. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Aug 22, 2014
5/5 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) "Finally an 'Expendables' that isn't so expendable " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Aug 14, 2014
39/100 21% Into The Storm (2014) "What makes this truly appalling is that every so often the film actually tries to connect its ludicrous and action oriented storm scenes with the tragic destruction that has recently torn through the Midwest. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Aug 8, 2014
68/100 21% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) "When the movie finally does decide to deliver the turtles we came to see it does it well. I just wish they remembered who the movie was named after sooner. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Aug 8, 2014
5/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) "Dawn is proof that with the right director and some care a remake or sequel can go further than anything that has come before it. Evidently there's still some creativity left in big budget Hollywood. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Jul 11, 2014
28/100 23% Tammy (2014) "We're forced to watch uncomfortably as McCarthy seemingly shills herself out as the big, funny girl. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jul 2, 2014
72/100 83% Begin Again (2014) "There's plenty of good to watch here, but this time around Carney's soul seems to be missing. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 27, 2014
40/100 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) "The film is somehow both over-plotted and yet completely lacking in story and the action just too disjointed to work. I still want a sequel, and that's because Optimus Prime riding on a Dinobot is really freaking awesome. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 27, 2014
85/100 85% 22 Jump Street (2014) "Sometimes it's good to be wrong... twice. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 13, 2014
78/100 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) "It works in both action and humor and deftly handles what could have been an overly complicated story. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Jun 5, 2014
2/5 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) "For a man who mocks pop culture so well he can barely pull of the most American of pop culture, the western. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted May 30, 2014
48/100 14% Blended (2014) "It does not make you want to gouge your eyes out in horror. It is not the anti-Christ. This is not a worse movie than Grown Ups 2. Not exactly praise, but it should take what it can get. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 23, 2014
64/100 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) "A charming cast makes it succeed, but a lack of willingness to really push boundaries never lets it become anything more. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 16, 2014
75/100 74% Godzilla (2014) "Godzilla might miss out on the perfect film it could be, but it's definitely the film it should be. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted May 15, 2014
32/100 23% The Other Woman (2014) "It's a despicable film that clearly has no idea what it's doing as it contradicts its own themes, eventually landing in a big puddle of false feminism that would set the movement back years if anyone actually cared about the movie. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Apr 25, 2014
63/100 19% Sabotage (2014) "Somewhere between Arnold's recent fare of dumb action and Ayers's history of dark, smart cop dramas we find Sabotage " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Mar 28, 2014
68/100 77% Noah (2014) "Noah works when its about Noah. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Mar 28, 2014
54/100 62% 13 Sins (2014) "While the move does have some visually striking moments, and a fantastic mob kill to push it into slasher territory it can't put its interesting pieces together into something that thrills or scares. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Mar 12, 2014
92/100 98% Boyhood (2014) "From the moment a train pulled into a station filmmakers have been trying to present life to us -- to tell us its story -- and Linklater may have now come the closest. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Mar 12, 2014
75/100 78% Veronica Mars (2014) "This is the Veronica Mars fans have been dying for, and if that means non-fans aren't going to have as good a time as fans at the movie then screw them, they should be fans in the first place. " ‐ Flixist.com
Posted Mar 8, 2014
3/5 28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) "3 Days to Kill is a bit confused about what it wants to be, but some of the things its trying on work and that makes it worth killing some time with -- just not at full price at a movie theater. " ‐ Examiner.com
Posted Feb 21, 2014
55/100 28% Pompeii (2014) "The thinking seems to be that when you already know that everyone is going to die at the end it makes it kind of hard to make any plot interesting so why not try them all out and see if any stick. " ‐ Flixist.com
