A- 97% Love Is Strange (2014) " Fully earns the tears and transcends any labels you'd like to place on it. " — Film Experience
Posted Feb 10, 2014
B+ 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) " Like watching a less soulful Toy Story movie on a sugar binge. I mean this as (mostly) a compliment." — Film Experience
Posted Feb 10, 2014
B+ 100% Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter " The film's great strength is in its eerie expressive visuals." — Film Experience
Posted Feb 7, 2014
74% Enemy (2014) " I kinda dug it but I have no idea if it's any good or what happened or where I am anymore and what aiiiiiiiieeeeeeee that last sound/shot. WTF " — Film Experience
Posted Sep 14, 2013
c 88% Abuse of Weakness (2014) " It's as if Breillat is determined to make the same mistakes all over again, botching her own would be exorcism. " — Film Experience
Posted Sep 13, 2013
D+ 43% To Rome with Love (2012) " Dear Woody, I will always be there for you. Stop punishing me for my loyalty." — Film Experience
Posted Jul 28, 2012
D+ 73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) " Loses the pop pleasure and inspiration of the original trilogy while never making a case for its own existence." — Film Experience
Posted Jul 28, 2012
B+ 92% Farewell, My Queen (2012) " Psychologically knotty and bracingly immediate... Léa Seydoux is riveting." — Film Experience
Posted Jul 28, 2012
B- 88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " The weakest of Nolan's three Batmans with offputting politics and a dull villain but its fascinatingly vertical construction and Catwoman save it." — Film Experience
Posted Jul 28, 2012
A- 80% Magic Mike (2012) " You go to see seven spectacularly formed male bodies but the movie turns out to be all sculpted, too. Soderbergh's best film since Erin Brockovich" — Film Experience
Posted Jul 28, 2012
B 85% 21 Jump Street (2012) " The best thing that can be said for it is that it never coasts on just one type of joke; funny in execution, not just in concept. " — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
C+ 49% Mirror Mirror (2012) " The Queen sees herself in the magic mirror which is a nice twist. But it's a slightly altered version of herself. The movie is like that, too -just a little bit off while trying hard to be "on":" — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
B 78% The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) " I went, as I imagine many people will, for some Quality Dame Time and I got it so I shouldn't complain..." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 37% Dark Shadows (2012) " Burton can still deliver a great visual hook and whimsical comedy. But he seems caught between his new laziness and his old genuine excitement about filmmaking." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
B+ 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) " Wonderful blink and you'll miss them comic beats in the middle of the finale's mayhem. And what glorious mayhem!" — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) " If you can suspend your disbelief that Kristen Stewart is "the fairest of all them all" in a beauty contest with Charlize Theron..." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
C 41% Rock of Ages (2012) " Rock of Ages will rock you... or at least lightly jostle you. " — Film Experience
Posted Jun 22, 2012
86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) " Despite the riveting Lisbeth reinvention and Fincher's visual prowess, source material problems remain in the form of creepy sexual politics and patchwork storytelling." — Film Experience
Posted Dec 18, 2011
A 98% The Artist (2011) " The gifted director never settles, always reaching for bigger laughs, and delivering unexpected and immensely clever mise en scène. The actors are magicians, too." — Film Experience
Posted Oct 17, 2011
90% Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) " a model of restraint and cool control, writer/director Sean Durkin and lead actress Elizabeth Olsen eschew easy thrills and familiar movie comforts for truly unsettling internal horrors." — Film Experience
Posted Oct 10, 2011
84% My Week with Marilyn (2011) " Michelle Williams wisely avoids caricature but Monroe's magic can't be replicated. The movie-making scenes are charming but this "true" story is suspect and clumsy off the set." — Film Experience
Posted Oct 10, 2011
B+ 70% The Loneliest Planet (2012) " All movies engage your eyes and ears by their very nature, but The Loneliest Planet adds a third dominant sense to the equation. How many movies can you feel on your skin?" — Film Experience
Posted Sep 26, 2011
B+ 94% Moneyball (2011) " It really really all comes down to one star banner: Brad Pitt unfurled. " — Film Experience
Posted Sep 25, 2011
72% Fright Night (2011) " The movie peaks far too early in its battle of wills over property lines but a good time at the movies is as infectious as vampirism, and more highly recommended." — Film Experience
Posted Sep 18, 2011
B- 83% Warrior (2011) " The chip on Tommy's (Tom Hardy) shoulder is so large it's metastasized into fleshy musculature in this overly familiar but effective fight picture." — Film Experience
Posted Sep 18, 2011
A 93% Drive (2011) " so possessed by the motion in its pictures --even its frozen tableaus are alive with the threat of movement -- it immediately joins the pantheon of Cinema's Coolest Movies" — Film Experience
Posted Sep 18, 2011
B- 96% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) " The Protacted Ending Pt 2. Though it's hard not to be grateful that "It all Ends" this one is a modest success. " — Film Experience
Posted Aug 12, 2011
D 39% The Other Woman (2011) " a picture that doesn't know itself: vague whenever it needs to be specific, bloats whenever it needs to trim." — Film Experience
Posted Aug 12, 2011
B- 100% The Harvey Girls (1946) " Though this creaky musical hasn't aged well, its peak moments are delightful: Dorothy and her Scarecrow reunited, "On the Atchison Topeka and the Santa Fe" and Garland's gift for physical comedy. " — Film Experience
Posted Aug 12, 2011
59% Kaboom (2011) " Araki movies used to feel dangerous. This one feels like underfunded kitsch. " — Film Experience
Posted Aug 12, 2011

Posted Aug 12, 2011
B 76% The Help (2011) " Fine actresses sharing thick pressure cooker air: Davis inhales, Stone fumes, Spencer erupts." — Film Experience
Posted Aug 12, 2011
26% Green Lantern (2011) " Hal Jordan isn't exactly gifted in the imagination department." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 17, 2011
B- 77% Thor (2011) " Despite under-imagined action sequences, the movie's intentional humor and Tom Hiddleston's well-played Loki save it from mediocrity." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 5, 2011
33% Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) " The mermaid attack is a worthy blockbuster spectacle but Johnny Depp's once intoxicating originality has all but evaporated; it's more of the tired same." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 5, 2011
84% Beginners (2011) " Beautifully cast and expressively told. It has the stamp of the exquisitely personal about it." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 5, 2011
87% X-Men: First Class (2011) " Michael Fassbender has screen presence and emotional acuity to die for but this prequel is all prologue, no payoff." — Film Experience
Posted Jun 5, 2011
91% The Fighter (2010) " The best thing about The Fighter is... No, no, it's just too hard to choose." — Film Experience
Posted Dec 6, 2010

Posted Nov 26, 2010

Posted Nov 26, 2010

Posted Nov 26, 2010
37% Burlesque (2010) " It's no turkey but a succulent bird, a (hot) pink flamingo with colorful plumage." — Film Experience
Posted Nov 25, 2010
A- 83% Avatar (2009) " Pandora is so immersive, its native cultures so well realized that any fantasy novelists watching will surely weep from the world-building gauntlet thrown down. Top this!" — Film Experience
Posted Dec 18, 2009
B 37% Nine (2009) " For every couple of failures, a triumph; the finale is perfect. And don't you have to end well?" — Film Experience
Posted Dec 18, 2009
C- 32% The Lovely Bones (2009) " Peter Jackson's heavy-handed direction snuffs out any emotion struggling for oxygen as mercilessly as George Harvey did young Susie in." — Film Experience
Posted Dec 12, 2009
C+ 85% A Single Man (2009) " frameable images don't always make for great sequential cinema" — Film Experience
Posted Dec 12, 2009
C+ 63% Brothers (2009) " The continual histrionics aren't as potent as little (emotional) earthquakes might have been" — Film Experience
Posted Dec 12, 2009
A- 91% Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) " Its blood sweat and tears are rushing in to seal up every crack or arguable stumble in the rough telling." — Film Experience
Posted Dec 12, 2009
68% Public Enemies (2009) " Too detached emotionally and a bit opaque in its characterizations but the swift footed camera work has a harsh beauty and Johnny Depp entertains." — Film Experience
