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

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
Posted Jul 6, 2010
B- 71% Invincible (2006) " Mark Whalberg is surprisingly good, delivering a likeness to the real Vince Papale that is uncanny." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 6, 2010

Posted Jul 6, 2010
A 75% Over the Hedge (2006) " Adventure, cute and cuddly animals, and some wit make for a wonderful experience!" — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 6, 2010
A- 76% Rocky Balboa (2006) " Stallone still has what it takes to make Rocky the peoples champ, and while the film is by no means a knockout, it will certainly be right there 'til the final round." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 6, 2010
C+ 49% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) " Eclipse breaks the mold at the hands of a craftsman. It becomes something new, something oddly watchable, at times enjoyable and surprisingly unlike what has come before." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 1, 2010
F 6% The Last Airbender (2010) " The most well-rounded failure of the year so far." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 1, 2010
C+ 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) " the film's joyous embrace of the gaudy computerized action earns it the tag of fun, but not to be taken seriously." — Film School Rejects
Posted May 27, 2010
D+ 43% Robin Hood (2010) " An extravagantly hollow experience that feels disconnected from the original character, and can't survive the ferocious scowl of Russell Crowe." — Film School Rejects
Posted May 14, 2010
B 73% Iron Man 2 (2010) " Despite some imperfections, this film accelerates well into a spectacular final act, once again proving Iron Man invincible." — Film School Rejects
Posted May 7, 2010
15% A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) " Haley's Krueger doesn't just look like a deeply unhinged burn victim out for gruesome revenge, he is a complete embodiment of evil. And it's terrifying." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 30, 2010
F 8% Furry Vengeance (2010) " Brendan Fraser should know better. Then again, his career choices continue to insist that he doesn't." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 30, 2010
A+ 91% Hot Fuzz (2007) " From paying homage to Michael Bay's camera motions to kicking an old lady square in the kisser, this film holds nothing back and fires away with tons of laughs." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 18, 2010
76% Kick-Ass (2010) " It is violent, it is vulgar and the story is off-the-walls at times. But in the end, Kick-Ass is a relentlessly fun, irreverent film that doesn't even care to take names." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 17, 2010
B- 41% Death at a Funeral (2010) " By holding tight to the story of the original, it delivers laughs and is held up on the shoulders of a great performance from James Marsden." — Film School Rejects

Posted Apr 14, 2010
C- 28% The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009) " Poorly structured, poorly paced, poorly executed CGI in places and characters that are unlikeable, despite the fact that we should be rooting for them. An inaccessible mess." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
B- 74% Banlieue 13 - Ultimatum (District 13: Ultimatum) (2009) " Adrenaline-filled, high-flying and brutal. A truly impressive action film that will hit you in the chest with awesome." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
84% Tucker & Dale vs Evil (2011) " Take note, those of you in Hollywood making awful satire. There is a right way to send up a genre, and this is it." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
87% Buried (2010) " Make no mistake, you can make a movie about one character inside a box interesting for 94 minutes." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
63% Howl (2010) " A complex, multi-layered commentary on art and what it means to different people." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
80% Cyrus (2010) " The best we've seen from Jonah Hill and yet another in the long line of wonderful performances from John C. Reilly." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
69% The Runaways (2010) " What begins as a sexually charged, energetic rock love story featuring two actresses pouring their souls into two iconic characters grinds to a halt beyond act one." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
27% High School (2012) " A stoner comedy worthy of being mentioned in the same paragraph as both Dazed and Confused and the great John Hughes." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
87% Blue Valentine (2010) " Uses its duality of setting %u2014 young and old, vibrant and cold, optimistic and tragic %u2014 to unleash wave after wave of emotion." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) " A sweet film that plays relatively fast and loose with sexuality, but never loses focus on it's core story." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010

Posted Apr 14, 2010
96% Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010) " An energetic, chaotic and thoroughly enjoyable look at a world of street art. And one hell of a prank, to boot." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
B+ 51% Chloe (2010) " Amanda Seyfried's performance is gripping and seductive, as is Julianne Moore's. Egoyan achieves great tension through methodical character development and unflinching style." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
C- 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " An otherwise passable adventure film that almost survives its many problems with energetic action sequences, but is ultimately damaged by the gimmick of 3D." — Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 14, 2010
86% Hubble 3D (2010) " It's a short film, but a fascinating one that contains breathtaking imagery. It's as simple as that." — Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 16, 2010
A+ 94% Juno (2007) " It seems to be, at least to me, that Reitman has found a very distinct formula for successfully entertaining us with sharp-witted, off-the-cuff comedies." — Film School Rejects
