3.5/5 51% White House Down (2013) " It's no 'Independence Day,' but it is a major step up for Emmerich primarily because he manages to successfully embrace humor while doing what he does best - blowing things up." —
Posted Jun 28, 2013
3/5 67% World War Z (2013) " It's formulaic and predictable, but the thrill of watching Brad Pitt survive the impossible and do his part to save the world makes it a satisfying offering for the summer season." —
Posted Jun 19, 2013
3.5/5 60% The Bling Ring (2013) " It isn't as slick as 'Spring Breakers,' but it benefits from a boost in intrigue, appeal, and credibility courtesy of its outrageous factual source material. " —
Posted Jun 13, 2013
2.5/5 56% Man of Steel (2013) " It's like Superman taking a punch from a human; you feel nothing." —
Posted Jun 12, 2013
2/5 38% The Purge (2013) " If The Purge ever becomes a thing, you can save yourself by killing the kids. Lesson learned." —
Posted Jun 5, 2013
—— Veggietales: 'Twas The Night Before Easter (2011)
Posted May 30, 2013
4/5 74% The East (2013) " Thoughtful and slick, it functions both as a riveting thriller and also something that's deeply conflicting, compelling you to juggle all angles of the scenario during the film and long after, too." —
Posted May 29, 2013
4/5 76% The Kings of Summer (2013) " Strikes a unique balance between coming-of-age charm, comedy, and honest drama, and it's the constant give and take between all three that makes the film as a whole both pleasantly enchanting and quite poignant, too." —
Posted May 28, 2013
2/5 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) " At least we still have 'Bridesmaids.'" —
Posted May 24, 2013
3/5 87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) " It isn't as effective as the first overall, but there are so many exceptional set pieces that it packs more than enough momentum to pull through and deliver a riveting experience." —
Posted May 14, 2013
3/5 35% Aftershock (2013) " If you're into Eli Roth-style gore, it's satisfying enough - period." —
Posted May 7, 2013
2.5/5 49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " It's first-rate filmmaking in a number of respects, but those accomplishments rarely support one another and when certain components of a film only excel on their own, you just can't achieve a fully realized, believable world." —
Posted May 7, 2013
2.5/5 62% Byzantium (2013) " Ronan and Arterton are captivating enough, but this hybrid drama-period piece lacks the zest, pace and tension you'd expect from a film digging into the repercussions of vampirism." —
Posted Apr 30, 2013
3/5 78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " Some details won't fly for source material outsiders, but the Tony Stark charm and incredible action are enough to make the film a successful thrill." —
Posted Apr 30, 2013
2.5/5 49% Pain & Gain (2013) " It's a moderately funny, largely deplorable narrative with entirely unlikable leads, but thanks to its true roots, it gets away with it." —
Posted Apr 26, 2013
3.5/5 68% Disconnect (2013) " With impeccable transitions, well-calculated story overlap, and a congealing tone, it doesn't feel like a sampling of stories, rather a look inside a well-developed world." —
Posted Apr 12, 2013
3/5 73% Simon Killer (2013) " The unusual shooting style and tendency to go to dark and uncomfortable places will undoubtedly lose some along the way, but for the rest, it's a twisted experience that'll undoubtedly leave a mark." —
Posted Apr 4, 2013
1.5/5 8% The Host (2013) " The author of 'The Twilight Saga' and the director of 'Gattaca' just had a baby - an unintentionally laughable, nonsensical, ugly baby." —
Posted Mar 29, 2013
3.5/5 81% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " Long and can feel like it, but your time and attention is ultimately rewarded through thoughtful, tense and moving scenarios that culminate in a satisfying and well-earned conclusion." —
Posted Mar 25, 2013
3/5 38% Admission (2013) " It isn't loaded with rapid-fire laughs, but it's because Weitz gives the material a chance to breathe and develops it into a more thoughtful comedy, making it more memorable and moving than most." —
Posted Mar 19, 2013
3.5/5 65% Spring Breakers (2013) " It isn't a film aiming to make you think, consider plot layers or even like the characters; it's all a show, one big disturbing and demoralizing yet mesmerizing and entertaining show." —
Posted Mar 16, 2013
4.5/5 84% Cheap Thrills (2014) " Exceptionally entertaining and effective thanks to quality characters and a well-calculated build that justify the gore." —
Posted Mar 16, 2013
3.5/5 62% Evil Dead (2013) " Gore for the sake of gore, but the best possible kind thanks to a committed cast and a director with the skillset to create carnage that's lacking in story, but is still thoughtful." —
Posted Mar 16, 2013
3/5 43% The Call (2013) " A quintessential guilty pleasure. Portions are nearly devoid of quality, making you resent the more enthralling bits until you have no choice, but to give into the satisfaction and enjoy the ride." —
Posted Mar 16, 2013
3/5 36% The ABCs of Death (2013) " All 26 shorts can't be winners, but the full film maintains excitement and curiosity when jumping from letter to letter, suggesting the horror anthology format has potential." —
Posted Mar 6, 2013
3/5 52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) " It's a fantastical, CGI romp; who's seeing it for character development or even a wholly believable narrative for that matter? It's about the fun of the adventure and in that sense, it delivers." —
Posted Mar 2, 2013
2/5 16% The Last Exorcism Part II (2013) " Gass-Donnelly could have made a decent slow burn, but overly long, static shots paired with a script with zero build just results in a film that's flat out boring." —
Posted Mar 1, 2013
2.5/5 28% 21 And Over (2013) " Lucas and Moore's work is sophomoric at best, but Teller, Astin and Chon are talented and charming enough to keep you engaged and, for the most part, enjoying the party." —
Posted Feb 28, 2013
2.5/5 39% Dark Skies (2013) " Likable leads, eerie imagery, and the more creative plot points could be enough to make it a worthy at-home watch, albeit not eradicate the fact that it's still a missed opportunity." —
Posted Feb 22, 2013
2.5/5 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) " A silly, disjointed and incomplete narrative makes it nearly impossible to appreciate what could have been an intriguing new supernatural franchise." —
Posted Feb 14, 2013
3.5/5 83% Side Effects (2013) " Even when the narrative loses its footing, Soderbergh manages to keep the piece cohesive enough to make the entire experience very effective and worthwhile." —
Posted Feb 7, 2013
2/5 20% Girls Against Boys (2013) " Chick takes the material way too seriously, turning what could have been a fun murderous romp into something truly disturbing, disgusting and often quite miserable." —
Posted Jan 31, 2013
3.5/5 80% Warm Bodies (2013) " Levine adapts the source material in the best possible way, keeping key plot points and character details intact, but infusing it with a wildly appropriate sense of humor." —
Posted Jan 31, 2013
1.5/5 4% Movie 43 (2013) " Just wait until 'Movie 43' hits DVD; Halle Berry's descent into humiliating madness will make for quite the collection of hilarious and mortifying GIFs." —
Posted Jan 26, 2013
93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011)
Posted Jan 22, 2013
12% In My Sleep (2010)
Posted Jan 22, 2013
3/5 61% John Dies at the End (2013) " Should be too off the rails to work, but smart and steadfast filmmaking turn it into an oddly engrossing, funny and wildly enjoyable experience." —
Posted Jan 21, 2013
65% The Following: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Clearly the big draw is the show's power to give you the creeps. - See more at: " — ScreenRant
Posted Jan 21, 2013
2.5/5 65% Mama (2013) " The short it's based on is a single scare and while the feature honors that single scare, the attempt to expand upon it results in a handful of less successful permutations connected by a clunky narrative." —
Posted Jan 16, 2013
2.5/5 19% Texas Chainsaw (2013) " As far as mindless gore goes, it's absolutely harmless and should hold you over until the next blood-soaked, subpar horror remake." —
Posted Jan 4, 2013
4/5 88% Django Unchained (2012) " An almost entirely enthralling piece, oozing with thoughtful gore, a wildly unique style, and curious characters all of which could only come together so well through notably cohesive filmmaking." —
Posted Dec 23, 2012
3/5 51% This is 40 (2012) " Dull jokes, a bloated running time and a lack of proper pacing is somewhat remedied by a charmingly honest representation of a dysfunctional family." —
Posted Dec 21, 2012
4.5/5 81% The Impossible (2012) " A suspenseful, moving and disturbing watch for all the right reasons. Watts and McGregor deliver immensely successful performances, but this is young Tom Holland's show." —
Posted Dec 20, 2012
3/5 65% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) " Two thirds is so packed with charming characters, stellar visuals and sense of adventure, it makes that other third come across as much more of a failure than it really is." —
Posted Dec 14, 2012
4.5/5 93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) " 157 minutes of anxiety, heartache and detailed information that'll leave you overwhelmed by a multitude of emotions, everything you'd want to feel from such a film and more." —
Posted Dec 10, 2012
3.5/5 70% Les Misérables (2012) " Never cared much for "Les Mis" back when every girl in class had to sing "Castle on a Cloud" at the talent show and while I still don't, the movie is an immensely impressive production." —
Posted Dec 6, 2012
4/5 62% Hitchcock (2012) " It's easy to toss around words like disturbing, eerie, and violence when Hitchcock is involved, but, turns out, the film version of a portion of his life is enjoyable and surprisingly heartwarming." —
Posted Dec 3, 2012
4.5/5 92% Silver Linings Playbook (2012) " Offers the satisfaction you'd expect from a romcom and feel-good sports movie, but Lawrence and Cooper's delicate treatment of their characters makes it far more than a fleeting source of entertainment." —
Posted Nov 24, 2012
2.5/5 12% Red Dawn (2012) " The original is no masterpiece, but it does get you rooting for the Wolverines. The 2012 version finds similar success, but to a lesser degree, as it's too manic and illogical to support character development." —
Posted Nov 19, 2012
2/5 48% The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012) " After a ridiculous five-film run, seeing the main characters at each other's throats is twistedly blissful." —
Posted Nov 14, 2012
3/5 43% 28 Hotel Rooms (2012) " A little dreary and often feels like an experiment, but if you're open to trying something new that requires a degree of effort, it's unusually unique and immersive." —
