Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
C 47% Rio 2 (2014) " Rio 2 feels less like a new adventure and a lot like an excuse to do more of the same." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 11, 2014
89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " It's one hell of a proper action thriller. A full-speed man-on-the-run story with layers of intrigue and violent stakes." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 8, 2014
98% Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014) " At its best, the show is completely unpredictable and meticulously detailed in its orchestration of pain and agony. So far as we can tell, season four stands to be its finest frame yet. " — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 3, 2014
C- 11% The Nut Job (2014) " Weird as it may be with its dancing Korean pop star and all of its "nuts" wordplay, The Nut Job isn't a tough one to crack. Like most actual nuts, it's pretty bland." — Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 28, 2014
100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 (TV, 2013) " For season three, there was no other way to end. After The Red Wedding, an event so monumentally brutal that it instantly became one of the cornerstones of this show's very legacy, the only way to go would be softer, quieter, warmer. " — Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 28, 2014
D 29% Machete Kills (2013) " A movie so lumbering and unnecessarily stupid that it has rid this reviewer of the desire to see Rodriguez continue the Machete saga." — Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 21, 2013
D 26% Planes (2013) " This is the laziest brand of kid's film: the kind created by a bunch of marketing executives in a 90th floor boardroom. For shame, John Lasseter." — Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 9, 2013
C+ 14% The Smurfs 2 (2013) " For movies that don't aspire to the pedigree of age-spanning animated tales, it's harmless and above-average." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 30, 2013
B 52% The To Do List (2013) " It's refreshing to see a movie aspire to a little more than just raiding the cliche bin." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 26, 2013
B 69% The Wolverine (2013) " After the outright creative failure that was the last Wolverine movie, this kind of Adamantium-solid effort is something to be appreciated by fans." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 24, 2013
A 72% Pacific Rim (2013) " Del Toro brings no pretense to Pacific Rim. He's simply making the most massive, relentlessly cool movie he can make until a studio accountant brings him to a full-stop." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 11, 2013
B 52% Promised Land (2013) " Promised Land is one of those rare "message movies" that first tells us a great story with great performances, then alerts us to its message." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 28, 2012
D 65% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) " Jackson has come back to Middle Earth to compose his most masturbatory effort yet." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 14, 2012
A 93% The History Of Future Folk (2013) " The film's charm, as you might imagine, is derived from the innocent joy that music brings to our main characters." — Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 28, 2012
A 40% Black Out (2014) " An Energetic, Twisted, Colorful and Wickedly Violent Ride." — Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 24, 2012
A 78% Dredd (2012) " A killer take on the character, full of great 3D and slow-motion effects that enhance a stellar performance from Karl Urban." — Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 21, 2012
B 87% Frankenweenie (2012) " Gorgeously animated and playful in its love of classic monsters, Burton's very personal little dog movie has plenty of charm to overcome its faults." — Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 20, 2012
C 88% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) " It is much bigger. But it's also much colder, much more dour and emptier as it plods its way through a flurry of chaos and silliness." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 19, 2012
78% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) " Delivered with infectious energy, Part of Me gives us moments of note mixed in with a gorgeous, immersive concert experience." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 5, 2012
78% Brave (2012) " With an incredible attention to the little things, Brave is not just Pixar's first Disney movie, but simply another great Pixar movie." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 22, 2012
—— El Infierno Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 16, 2012
85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) " An expertly crafted explosion of good old fashioned hand-to-hand-to-machete-to-fist-to-head-to-wall brilliance. A milestone for action cinema." — Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 15, 2012
68% God Bless America (2012) " Darkly comedic, subversive, rage-filled and infinitely charming. I haven't quite laughed this hard since Bobcat Goldthwait's last movie, World's Greatest Dad." — Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 14, 2012
—— Just Like Being There (2013) " Anyone who has ever bought a poster at a rock show or a wonderful screen-printed movie poster is going to love the intimate portrait of those behind the art they love." — Film School Rejects

B+ —— Louis C.K.: Hilarious (2011) Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 16, 2011
B- 60% Real Steel (2011) " Kudos to Shawn Levy, he's made a movie many of us didn't expect - the personification of what a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots movie should be." — Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 6, 2011
—— Bunohan (Return To Murder) (2013) Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 28, 2011
—— Borderline (1930) Film School Rejects

—— El Judicial 2 - "Cazadores De Narcos" Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 28, 2011
D 27% Colombiana (2011) " Columbiana is stupid, listless and too shy to be any fun. When you fail to make a well-armed, underwear-clad Zoe Saldana interesting, it seems almost intentional." — Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 26, 2011
A 79% Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) " Guided by the steadiest hand Joe Johnston has shown in years, Captain America explodes into the action movie you've been waiting all summer to see." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 21, 2011
B- 36% Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) " It's got problems, but when it comes to delivering jaw-dropping, massive spectacle, we're again reminded that no one can do Transformers quite like Michael Bay." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 28, 2011
C 26% Green Lantern (2011) " Lantern dazzles with some ambitious visuals and a wicked cool mythology, but fails to overcome its fear that is audience is stupid." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jun 17, 2011
—— Greenlit Film School Rejects
Posted May 11, 2011
B- 72% Rio (2011) " Using all the vibrant colors and lively music of Brazil, Rio dances its way toward becoming Blue Sky's best effort to date. It may be but a kids' movie, but it's a fun ride." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 16, 2011
83% The Imperialists Are Still Alive! (2011) " If it accomplishes one thing, it is that Durra shows herself to be an exciting young director. She has a sense of style and a sense of character. And her film has a lot of character because of it." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 15, 2011
41% HappyThankYouMorePlease (2011) " As it is in any breakout comedy, it is performance that matters. Radnor is charming, while Kate Mara is red hot sexy and in no way the manic pixie dream girl." — Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 28, 2011
B 13% Yogi Bear (2010) " Yogi Bear is a good-hearted, delightful story that captures the spirit of its original, leaving its audience smiling (and possibly hungry)." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 17, 2010
C+ 51% Tron Legacy (2010) " Stunning visuals, excellent use of 3D and all the digitized cool you can cram into one film. And that Daft Punk score, oh that Daft Punk score." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 17, 2010
A 87% Black Swan (2010) " Visually stunning and brutal, Black Swan gives us the great cinematic monster that we never saw coming: Natalie Portman in a pink tutu. Just remember to breathe." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 2, 2010
43% Barry Munday (2010) " It trades schmaltz for honesty and receives heaps of laughs as its reward." — Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 4, 2010
82% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) " One of the most completely entertaining films of the summer." — Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 13, 2010
C 41% The Expendables (2010) " When The Expendables revs up and becomes the loud, explosive machismo parade that it's meant to be, it works. But when it doesn't, it's rather abysmal." — Film School Rejects
Posted Aug 12, 2010
C+ 64% Predators (2010) " A fun call-back to its gruesome predecessor. What it lacks in machismo, it certainly makes up for with atmosphere." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 9, 2010
A 93% Children of Men (2006) " A special film by a gifted filmmaker." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 6, 2010
B- 76% Superman Returns (2006) " One of this summer's best action movies." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 6, 2010
A 69% A Scanner Darkly (2006) " The message is clear and the animation creates a world unlike any other in film, making A Scanner Darkly an easy addition to the must-see list of 2006." — Film School Rejects
