Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
3/5 38% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) " Talented filmmakers manage to elevate the uneven narrative and produce an entertaining experience, but 'Chapter 2' is nowhere near as refined as the original." — Shockya.com
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3.5/5 67% I Declare War (2013) " With so much straightforward supernatural and/or dystopian teen violence, this is a welcomed and highly effective experiment in juggling preadolescent imagination and very real, adult life lessons." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 30, 2013
2/5 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) " 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' might reduce plans for the sequel to ashes." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 24, 2013
3/5 29% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) " It rocks more than enough polished and highly engaging sequences to entice you to overlook it's minor identity crisis." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 21, 2013
5/5 99% Short Term 12 (2013) " It's infinitely dynamic, making it one of the most moving, harrowing, heartwarming, and satisfying films of the year. " — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 21, 2013
3/5 27% Jobs (2013) " It's an entirely wooden and bland representation of the tech icon, but for Apple devotees, it'll still have an appeal as an informative biopic. " — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 16, 2013
3.5/5 47% We're The Millers (2013) " The plot isn't particularly sound and some jokes fall flat, but the appeal of watching this 'family' come together is so enjoyable and satisfying, it makes the film a worthy watch." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 7, 2013
3/5 68% Elysium (2013) " Neill Blomkamp's choice to indulge in his bigger budget by throwing in every advanced technology he could conjure up dilutes the more thoughtful, raw components of the film." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 6, 2013
4/5 80% Europa Report (2013) " A highly effective documentary-style piece that puts you in the heart of a deep space mission, letting you feel the thrill and then, ultimately, the utter terror." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 2, 2013
4/5 93% The Spectacular Now (2013) " Swaps storytelling truisms for the natural beat of life and thanks to outstanding performances from Teller and Woodley, that results in an exceptionally raw and poignant experience." — Shockya.com
Posted Aug 1, 2013
3/5 42% Red 2 (2013) " The details of the mission are a little sloppy, but the appeal of watching Willis, Malkovich, and Mirren rock some serious firepower is still there, making the sequel another satisfying thrill." — Shockya.com
Posted Jul 26, 2013
3.5/5 51% The To Do List (2013) " It's a little too silly to sustain a significant character journey, but 'The To Do List' is still a successful overload of nostalgic and incredibly raunchy humor. " — Shockya.com
Posted Jul 26, 2013
4.5/5 86% The Conjuring (2013) " Loaded with nightmarish scenarios and an exceptional amount of character development. It's more than just a good scare; it's a truly thoughtful and all-consuming experience." — Shockya.com
Posted Jul 14, 2013
3/5 72% Pacific Rim (2013) " It's the quintessential mindless summer sci-fi action film and while it's successful in that respect, it's also disappointing because it could have been so much more." — Shockya.com
Posted Jul 11, 2013
3.5/5 74% Despicable Me 2 (2013) " The Anti-Villain League needs a better mission plan, but there's still more than enough family charm and minions to keep the film firmly afloat." — Shockya.com
Posted Jul 2, 2013
3.5/5 50% 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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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. " — Shockya.com
Posted Jun 13, 2013
2.5/5 55% Man of Steel (2013) " It's like Superman taking a punch from a human; you feel nothing." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted Jun 5, 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." — Shockya.com
Posted May 29, 2013
4/5 75% 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." — Shockya.com
Posted May 28, 2013
2/5 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) " At least we still have 'Bridesmaids.'" — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted May 14, 2013
3/5 35% Aftershock (2013) " If you're into Eli Roth-style gore, it's satisfying enough - period." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted Apr 30, 2013
2.5/5 50% 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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted Mar 16, 2013
4.5/5 88% Cheap Thrills (2014) " Exceptionally entertaining and effective thanks to quality characters and a well-calculated build that justify the gore." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted Feb 7, 2013
2/5 19% 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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
Posted Jan 26, 2013
93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) Shockya.com
Posted Jan 22, 2013
12% In My Sleep (2010) Shockya.com
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." — Shockya.com
