3/4 76% The Green Prince (2014) " The story plays well regardless of what one's opinion is about the conflict, because it primarily operates on the more universal, relatable aspects of human nature." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 12, 2014
3/4 90% To Be Takei (2014) " Conventional documentary or not, I got something of positive value and insight out of "To Be Takei."" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 22, 2014
3/4 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) " As dopey and bloodless as the action sequences are, they keep the film moving at a brisker pace than its 2-hour-plus running time indicates." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 15, 2014
A 100% Dr. Strangelove Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) " Of the many films considered great satire, only Dr. Strangelove holds up as a masterpiece with none of its bite removed." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Aug 7, 2014
35% Young Einstein (1988) " Serious's most distinguishing feature is his unruly hair, which serves as both a reminder of Einstein's own unkempt mane and the endless series of '80s-era stand-up comedians memorable only for their wacky hairdos. " — House Next Door
Posted Aug 6, 2014
2/4 78% Get On Up (2014) " It just wants to play some of the big hits you love while ticking off a checklist of standard biopic milestones." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 1, 2014
1/4 60% Hercules (2014) " You can feel your intelligence being insulted in almost every frame." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 25, 2014
3/4 59% A Five Star Life (2014) " "A Five Star Life" shows something not often seen in American cinema, at least in films that aren't police procedurals: It shows an ordinary citizen doing her job." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jul 18, 2014
3/4 88% Siddharth (2014) " A sense of hopelessness invades every frame of "Siddharth," yet its story is not emotionally manipulative." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 28, 2014
2/4 53% Jersey Boys (2014) " The elephant in the room is Eastwood himself. He is the wrong director for this material, and this opinion comes from someone who loved "Million Dollar Baby," "Space Cowboys" and even those orangutan movies." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 20, 2014
1/4 27% Burning Blue (2014) " This shockingly amateurish film evokes memories of "Making Love," the Arthur Hiller film about a married man coming to terms with his homosexuality." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Jun 6, 2014
85% Dead Poets Society (1989) " Dead Poets Society purports to be about the bravery of following one's own path. This is a bright, shining lie, one the film is ballsy enough to tell to your face." — House Next Door
Posted Jun 4, 2014
1.5/4 42% Words And Pictures (2014) " If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, this review would be just a slfie of yours truly looking sad and confused as the credits for "Words and Pictures" played in the background." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 23, 2014
B 62% Million Dollar Arm (2014) " Million Dollar Arm's biggest strength is its sneaky way of making you care about its characters. Sure, it's clich├ęd, but it's perfectly fine Sunday afternoon movie fare." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted May 16, 2014
73% Neighbors (2014) " The screenplay is a poorly stitched-together patchwork of ideas, which shouldn't be a surprise, as See No Evil, Hear No Evil is credited to five writers." — House Next Door
Posted May 15, 2014
2/4 34% Stage Fright (2014) " "Stage Fright" could have been so much fun." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 9, 2014
1/4 31% Bad Johnson (2014) " Why actresses take roles in dreck like this I'll never know. The money must be fabulous." — RogerEbert.com
Posted May 2, 2014
0.5/4 8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) " Why did I need to see scene after unfunny scene of Wayans nakedly humping a creepy children's doll (there must be 10 minutes of this footage)?" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/4 46% Heaven Is for Real (2014) " Without fail, every time I found myself liking this movie, it would break the spell with its ulterior motives." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 16, 2014
3.5/4 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) " "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a very good movie, the rare film in this genre that serves as both entry point and continuation. For a change, you can walk in cold and you won't be too lost." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/4 76% Anita (2014) " As a documented record of Hill's story and her achievements, "Anita" is a serviceable, at times riveting documentary." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 21, 2014
A- 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " This may be the Muppets' best onscreen appearance since Kermit strummed his banjo back in 1979." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Mar 20, 2014
1/4 22% Need For Speed (2014) " As exciting as getting a tow from AAA, and just as slow." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Mar 14, 2014
B 60% Non-Stop (2014) " For most of its running time, Non-Stop provides breezy, no-nonsense, kitchen-sink entertainment." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/4 40% In Secret (2014) " Isaac is better in his early scenes as a seducer, Olsen is better in her bitter, angry later scenes, but they synch up by the film's over-the-top last moments." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 21, 2014
A- 98% Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2014) " Stritch speaks honestly about her mortality. At 87, she harbors no fantasies about extended amounts of time. Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me makes you wish she would live forever." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 21, 2014
0.5/4 8% Girl On A Bicycle (2014) " It may be the worst romantic comedy I have ever seen, and this is not hyperbole." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 14, 2014
3/4 68% About Last Night (2014) " "About Last Night" surrenders its predecessor's ellipsis in its title, but thankfully retains the salty mouth and sexual shenanigans that mark it as an adaptation of David Mamet's "Sexual Perversity In Chicago"." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Feb 14, 2014
D- 15% Endless Love (2014) " It's too early for me to call this the worst movie of 2014, but it's certainly the worst thus far. Endless Love is an interminable mess." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 13, 2014
A+ 98% Chinatown (1974) " Chinatown is deliciously, intolerably cruel as it toys with us." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 4, 2014
A+ 96% Do the Right Thing (1989) " My rowdy audience at Do The Right Thing did not cheer the riot, nor did one break out at the end. Like me, they left having seen a reflection of their own lives onscreen." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 4, 2014
C- 94% Her (2013) " Her left me as empty as an unplugged monitor." — Movie Mezzanine
Posted Feb 4, 2014
2.5/4 29% Grudge Match (2013) " It broke my nostalgia, casting a gloomy dark cloud over my memories of "Rocky" and "Raging Bull." I didn't need to see this." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Dec 26, 2013
3/4 81% Lenny Cooke (2013) " This is quite a good sports documentary, moving and unafraid of making you work for its pleasures." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Dec 1, 2013
1.5/4 38% Delivery Man (2013) " Vince Vaughn can be a ray of sunshine in even the worst movies (see "Be Cool" for the best example of this). Here, I just didn't buy him as a loveable sad-sack." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2.5/4 63% Dear Mr. Watterson (2013) " I was frustrated to the point of rewinding the screener and pausing it so I could take in what was being described. In a theater, you won't have this luxury." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 15, 2013
3.5/4 68% The Best Man Holiday (2013) " "The Best Man Holiday" has the potential to become a staple of Christmastime movie watching in the 'hood." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 15, 2013
1/4 33% Best Man Down (2013) " A very disjointed, confused, and sloppy movie." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Nov 8, 2013
3/4 60% Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013) " Knoxville immerses himself in the role, radiating affection and concern for his charge. He's completely convincing, even during the most bizarre moments in "Bad Grandpa."" — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 25, 2013
2/4 79% Big Ass Spider! (2013) " "Big Ass Spider!" has a big ass problem: It thinks you're better than the material." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 21, 2013
3.5/4 63% Broadway Idiot (2013) " There are some emotionally stunning and candid moments in this documentary, and they unfold without seeming forced or staged." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 11, 2013
3/4 83% Dislecksia: The Movie (2013) " It's packaged in an easygoing 83 minutes that sometimes gets too cutesy for its own good but never wears out its welcome." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Oct 4, 2013
1.5/4 81% Don Jon (2013) " Hearing the star of "Who's the Boss?" drop about 500 f-bombs is one of the film's few pleasures." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3/4 93% Sample This (2013) " For a documentary filled with such joyous, danceable beats, there's still a note of sadness playing through Sample This." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 13, 2013
1.5/4 35% Salinger (2013) " It's a relentless assault on a man who wished to be left alone." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 10, 2013
2.5/4 59% Riddick (2013) " "Riddick" is better than I expected, and it does provide a decent amount of fun for fans of the genre." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Sep 6, 2013
1.5/4 68% I Declare War (2013) " I Declare War plays like a C-student's final exam essay on Lord of the Flies. Any interest in the game is overridden by the massive amounts of allegory lifted straight from Golding's novel." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 30, 2013
1/4 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) " This looks like a string of screen tests and home movie outtakes of the actors getting hammered on set. It's "Grown Ups 2" for the art house crowd." — RogerEbert.com
Posted Aug 23, 2013
90% Crossing Delancey (1988) " Let me list the things Izzy does to Sam, and ask if you'd stick around." — House Next Door
Posted Aug 15, 2013
3.5/4 92% In a World... (2013) " "In A World..." is too good a film to merely focus on ... one plot element, or to present its male characters as one-note villains. These are complex people, funny one moment and infuriating the next." — RogerEbert.com
