D 33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) " I don't know who to blame for such an awful looking movie - the Director or Cinematographer. If I have to spend 2 1/2 hours in this world, can they at least make it watchable?"" — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 22, 2011
D 9% Saw 3D (2010) " Clearly the Producers have no more ideas for this franchise. It's a good thing they are ending the way they wanted to. To bad its not an ending fans will enjoy or deserve." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 22, 2011
B 77% Thor (2011) " This isn't SyFy Thor, it's HOLLYWOOD Thor! Crummy costume and set design is made up by being full of heart and soul." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 7, 2011
B- 60% Water for Elephants (2011) " Witherspoon seemed way too old for Pattinson. Like a cougar ready to attack and Pattinson has the emotional range of a teaspoon. Movie is soggy but doesn't sink." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 24, 2011
D 58% Scream 4 (2011) " Boring, derivative and killed its own gimmick within the first five minutes." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 16, 2011
C 89% Tangled (2010) " Enjoyable movie but a little shallow and lifeless." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 10, 2011
C 27% Your Highness (2011) " Fails to please as a comedy, but was fine as a low-budget adventure movie." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 9, 2011
A 94% The Town (2010) " The Town isn't original in any sense of the word, but Affleck does a marvelous job executing all of the pieces and is easily one of the best films of 2010." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2011
C 93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) " The dialog seems like it was pulled from a magazine full of bad liberal clichés. It feels as if people who used to be progressives, but want people to think they still are wrote this movie." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 27, 2011
B 55% Unknown (2011) " Liam Neeson's late career conversion into a bad ass action hero continues. On it's face the premise sounded dumb, but the movie is much more nuanced than the trailer would lead you to believe." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2011
A 18% Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009) Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 25, 2011
B- 43% The Green Hornet (2011) " These are just two people who wanted to do cool stuff and had the money and talent (at least Kato did) to do it. It was nice watching a Comic Book movie where there wasn't much brooding or tales of woe involved." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 15, 2011
A 91% The Fighter (2010) " I'm a sucker for a good sports movie, add Christin Bale in a Oscar worthy performance, Amy Adams and Mark Wahlberg and you can't go wrong. Great cast, good story makes it one of the year's best." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2010
A 51% Tron Legacy (2010) " The "Youngification" of Jeff Bridges is downright creepy, but groundbreaking. Hedlund does a great job of being the emotional center of this movie. Great visuals are matched by a good story." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2010
D 20% The Tourist (2010) " Boring, bland and self indulgent Vanity piece for Angelina Jolie." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 12, 2010
A- 49% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) " If this truly is the last Narnia film, the series will end on a strong note. I'm not ashamed to say I cried like a baby at the end. " — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 11, 2010
C 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) " David Yates hoodwinked us. He created a really strong, dark, road movie set against the backdrop of a holocaust, but fails to deliver a real Harry Potter movie. He completely sucked the magic out of this franchise." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 20, 2010
D 86% Unstoppable (2010) " There may be a decent action movie in here somewhere but Unstoppable is stopped in its tracks by a horrible set up." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 13, 2010
F 9% My Soul to Take (2010) " Yep, this movie is garbage." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 10, 2010
C 96% The Social Network (2010) " What happens when a director and writer hate their subject? A well made, but one dimensional hit piece. " — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Oct 2, 2010
B- 23% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) " Would this movie have been made if not for the 3D Gimmick? Milla Jovovich commands the screen and makes all the RE films a fun ride. If you hate the series, this won't change your mind. " — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Sep 11, 2010
B 73% Piranha 3-D (2010) " Parents keep your annoying kids out of my R Rated Movies! Has a bit of build up but once the carnage finally hits, it's 20 - 30 minutes of absolute, beautiful, mayhem." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 21, 2010
C 82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " Has moments when it is laugh out loud funny and has some truly cool action scenes but it's overdone, over the top and they are so darn smug and self-aware about everything. Ultimately suffers from gimmick overload." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 13, 2010
B 69% The Runaways (2010) " Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning are great together." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2010
B 46% Step Up 3 (2010) " Best use of 3D I've seen all year. Doesn't set the world on fire and not genre defining, so if you don't like these types of films, this isn't going to change your mind. For the rest of us, it's a fun ride and truly a showcase for effective 3D use." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Aug 7, 2010
B- 100% Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010) Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 30, 2010
B 62% Salt (2010) " Ok action movie that gets bogged down by a convoluted plot, but is elevated by Angelina Jolie's presence." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 23, 2010
D 86% Inception (2010) " It's hard to connect with a movie when it tries so hard to fool you; is this a dream, is it not, is it a dream within a dream? Who cares? Just commit to something and get on with it. A crushing bore." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 16, 2010
C 41% The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010) " Nicholas Cage is fun, but the rest of the movie lacks vision, style and dare I say it - magic." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 16, 2010
C 81% Despicable Me (2010) " Decent movie that falls victim to 5 key flaws: A marketing campaign that gives away all the best parts, I generally don't like Steve Carell, boring minions, bland and lifeless animation and it's in 3D." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 10, 2010
B+ 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) " Eclipse almost fully redeems this franchise. It finally brings some bite to these vampy cats and wolf cubs. It actually looks and sounds like a real movie and not some student film with a blind cinematographer. I still HATE Bella and Edward." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jul 1, 2010
C- 10% Grown Ups (2010) " Remember the moment in your life when you realized that Saturday Night Live was no longer funny? Any movie that has not one but four different pee jokes tells you something. I guess its better than having 4 or 5 fart jokes, oh wait." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 27, 2010
B 37% From Paris with Love (2010) " A fun, over the top action movie that doesn't care that it's stupid and over the top." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 20, 2010
B+ 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) " I wish I could be one of the few to hate on this movie, it'd drive up my traffic numbers. But I can't, it has an Evil Stuffed Bear! Toy Story 3 is not perfect, but it's strong. This coming from a Pixar Hater." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 19, 2010
B 47% The A-Team (2010) " The Rare TV - Movie Adaptation that works. The chemistry and nods to the original are perfect. Only flaw is bland action and boring villains." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 12, 2010
D 74% Splice (2010) " It strives so hard to be more than it is and that is why it ultimately fails. Could have been good if they left the pretensions at the door and went for straight horror. Then the horrible 3rd act could be forgiven." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jun 5, 2010
C 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) " Maybe the $200 million went towards Craft Services, its certainly not up on the screen. I honestly don't know if I liked it or not. I will say it's the best video game movie ever, but that's damning the movie with faint praise." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 29, 2010
C 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) " Its a collection of scenes where stuff happens but not a real movie. The first Iron Man proved it could be smart AND entertaining. This is just mildly ok in parts." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 8, 2010
C- 15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) " Incredibly bland and unimaginative. It's slow, tedious, and kind of pretentious. Fails to answer the existential question - why do I exist?" — Eclipse Magazine
Posted May 1, 2010
B 49% The Losers (2010) " Its a fun, derivative rip off of the A-Team. I walked in expecting to hate it, came away being thoroughly entertained." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 24, 2010
A+ 76% Kick-Ass (2010) " This movie has everything I love, Comedy, Elvis, Heroes, and Over the top Action all executed perfectly. I left the theater giddy with happiness. Best movie of the year." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 17, 2010
C 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " Sam Worthington is proof that there is a devil. It's the only explanation for his inexplicable meteoric rise. At some point this movie turns the corner and becomes Campy Good Fun." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Apr 1, 2010
C 51% Alice in Wonderland (2010) " The movie feels wrong. I liked the individual pieces but it never works as a whole. It's too much like Burton's other work and the 3D was awful." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Mar 7, 2010
D 69% Shutter Island (2010) " This is a soul crushing bore that I desperately wanted to walk out on. Would have been better if it was called Arkham Asylum." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2010
B- 49% Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) " This is what a quality book adaptation should do, stand on it's own, while making you want to explore more. But JESUS! Can we stop the Apple Product Placements! I don't want to see a freaking iPhone in a Fantasy film!!!" — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Feb 13, 2010
B 56% Edge of Darkness (2010) " Crazy Mel returns From the Edge of Darkness. I'm not sure what I expected from this movie but it is a good solid return to form for Mel. Just stay off the coo-coo pills." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 30, 2010
A- 48% The Book of Eli (2010) " Rejoice, Hollywood has made a movie that the Religious Right can like - if you take away the blood and gore. It's nice to know my iPod will work in a post apocalyptic world." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Jan 16, 2010
C- 70% Sherlock Holmes (2009) " This is one Ugly, cheap looking movie. While Holmes is good in small doses, 2 hours of him is a bit much, even if it's Robert Downey Jr. whom I have mad love for." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 27, 2009
C 83% Avatar (2009) " This movie takes itself way too seriously; there are no cute or funny moments, no rah, rah, nothing. I didn't love this movie or hate it. It''s one big blurry pile of meh." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Dec 19, 2009
D 28% The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) " Bella Swan is loathsome and not aware how insipid, self involved, narcissistic and whiny she is." — Eclipse Magazine
Posted Nov 22, 2009
A 89% Inglourious Basterds (2009) " In this year of bland, boring, vision-less studio films Ingourious Basterds is a fun, inventive breath of fresh air that I just wanted to keep breathing in and hold as if my life depended on it." — Eclipse Magazine
