63% Bad Words (2014) " Perhaps Jason Bateman serves his edgy audience by bringing them a redemption story in their own language. Perhaps he crosses lines that shouldn't be crossed. Perhaps both." — Patheos
Posted Mar 21, 2014
41% Divergent (2014) " She's nothing like Bella, that vampire-girlfriend, and this romance is nothing like Twilight." — Patheos
Posted Mar 21, 2014
77% Noah (2014) " It's the kind of movie that Christians, indeed everyone, should want Hollywood to make." — Patheos
Posted Mar 21, 2014
96% The Lego Movie (2014) " It works on all levels: as a fun, funny movie to enjoy with family, as a commentary on the conformity of society and its lack of creativity, as an ode to human connections, and even, if you squint just right, an exploration of the nature of God." — Patheos
Posted Feb 7, 2014
76% Lone Survivor (2014) " A powerful telling of a true story that reminds us there is a qualitative difference between America and the evils we fight at such great cost. This devastating movie will make you proud." — Patheos
Posted Jan 10, 2014
50% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) " Enough quirky, charming moments, as Walter travels the odd corners of the world, to elevate the film to something enjoyable. It has its own sense of delight." — Patheos
Posted Dec 24, 2013
77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) " It's not ok to make three hours of graphic sex, epic drug binges, and general debauchery as boring as it is in The Wolf of Wall Street." — Patheos
Posted Dec 24, 2013
93% American Hustle (2013) " On paper, American Hustle should be the movie of the year and sweep the Oscars, but its supreme promise fades once the lights go down in the theater. It's good, not great." — Patheos
Posted Dec 20, 2013
74% The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) " Memo to schoolchildren planning on watching Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy in lieu of reading the novel for your book report: Don't. You could read the book in less time than watching the movies." — Patheos
Posted Dec 13, 2013
79% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) " Created by Disney, lauding Walt Disney, about the creation of a Disney classic, it has much the same effect as a trip to Disneyland: It's a heartwarming, sweet, kind, and fantastical ride that works best if you never wonder what's behind the curtain." — Patheos
Posted Dec 13, 2013
92% Nebraska (2013) " Like the road trip that fills the bulk of the story, it's a ride that feels awkward and even pointless at first, but one you're sure glad you took by the end." — Patheos
Posted Nov 22, 2013
89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) " This movie makes you believe in revolution." — Patheos
Posted Nov 20, 2013
89% Rush (2013) " It's nice to see a film for the guys that doesn't feature anorexic chicks in leather hoisting huge guns or fighting robots destroying metropolises. Good on you, Ron Howard. " — Patheos
Posted Sep 27, 2013
72% Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013) " I was moved by this film. I laughed, I teared up. I - dare I say? - related. And that is more powerful than any message movie could ever be. You should see it even if (like me) you're white and conservative. Especially if you're white and conservative." — Patheos
Posted Aug 16, 2013
26% Planes (2013) " Planes would be a fine DVD to have in your arsenal to keep your toddler boy occupied while you take a shower, if they'd grown tired of Thomas the Tank Engine or Cars itself. It's that level. Nothing more." — Patheos
Posted Aug 9, 2013
68% Elysium (2013) " Calm down. This movie fits fine with conservatism. It's pretty much a warning about what will happen to Earth if socialism wins. Future Socialist Earth is in bad shape. It's dusty. It's dirty. It's unkept. Basically, it's Detroit. " — Patheos
Posted Aug 9, 2013
67% World War Z (2013) " Zombies bad. Brad Pitt good." — Patheos
Posted Jun 21, 2013
60% The Bling Ring (2013) " Is it a sin to covet the life of someone who exists purely for the purpose of being coveted?" — Patheos
Posted Jun 21, 2013
78% Monsters University (2013) " If it were released from any other studio, it would be their best film. From Pixar, it's not even in the top bunch. Not everything can be "Up" or "Toy Story 3," I suppose. Oh well." — Patheos
Posted Jun 21, 2013
56% Man of Steel (2013) " Engaging, entertaining, and refreshingly sincere." — Patheos
Posted Jun 14, 2013
34% The Internship (2013) " Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson deliver a pep talk to Millennials with nice, easy chemistry, but the sweetness of the message deserves a better overall vehicle. " — Patheos
Posted Jun 7, 2013
68% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) " If you see it, I highly recommend that you do what I did and sit in front of your local chapter of The Rock Fan Club. It, um, enhances the experience. One might even say it pumps it up. Puts the fun on steroids. (Too far?)" — Patheos
Posted May 24, 2013
64% Epic (2013) " Good despite the poster-blurb title. I hear the sequels are "Best Family Movie Yet" and "Amazing Thrill Ride!"" — Patheos
Posted May 24, 2013
49% The Great Gatsby (2013) " I'm not sure I understood the book until I saw this movie. Yeah. I said that." — Patheos
Posted May 10, 2013
78% Iron Man 3 (2013) " It has the flash and quips to be a good time, if not the heart to be great. " — Patheos
Posted May 10, 2013
45% To The Wonder (2013) " A profound and mystical exploration of love that juxtaposes marriage between humans with a priest's marriage to God but gives few answers. " — Patheos
Posted Apr 15, 2013
78% 42 (2013) " Perhaps not a great movie, but definitely a good adaptation of a great American story." — Patheos
Posted Apr 15, 2013
70% The Croods (2013) " What's happening in America? Are there really scores of concerned but overprotective parents locking their daughters in padded rooms and not letting them experience any adventures? Actually, maybe Hollywood has a point." — Patheos
Posted Mar 21, 2013
48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) " If I had a pickle for every time a person went to meet his Maker in this film, I'd have a bulging full barrel." — Patheos
Posted Mar 21, 2013
59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) " After years of Shrek-like cynicism and fart jokes dominating children's media, a refreshing tornado of sincerity blows into theaters with the new spectacular Oz the Great and Powerful. " — Patheos
Posted Mar 8, 2013
14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) " Don't be dismayed, Die Hard fans. The problem is with the movie, not yourselves." — Patheos
Posted Feb 15, 2013
32% Gangster Squad (2013) " There's nothing particularly wrong with Gangster Squad, except perhaps its timing, but there's nothing particularly right either." — Patheos
Posted Jan 11, 2013
93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) " The controversy comes from insistence by Bigalow that audiences think for themselves. She neither condones nor condemns, but rather asks questions without giving easy answers. Plus, she does it while thoroughly entertaining the audience." — Patheos
Posted Jan 11, 2013
51% This is 40 (2012) " Once again, the insightful Judd Apatow has put his finger on Generation X. Sadly, the result is not encouraging." — Patheos
Posted Dec 21, 2012
70% Les Misérables (2012) " Beneath the moving acting, soaring music, and powerful images is a story. And what a story. " — Patheos
Posted Dec 21, 2012
4% Playing for Keeps (2012) " A star-studded cast and a good concept add up to less than nothing in Playing for Keeps, an attempt at a warm, family romantic comedy that, like the main character, succumbs to its vices." — Patheos
Posted Dec 10, 2012
75% Killing Them Softly (2012) " What with personal problems and a bad economy, mob hitmen are just like us. Only more violent. " — Patheos
Posted Nov 30, 2012
90% Lincoln (2012) " This is how the political sausage is made and it will make you feel better about American Democracy. Not many movies can say that." — Patheos
Posted Nov 16, 2012
63% Anna Karenina (2012) " Daring staging and a great story make this adaptation the movie to beat this Oscar season." — Patheos
Posted Nov 16, 2012
21% Taken 2 (2012) " If there were any justice in the world, this would be the movie inspiring mass riots. It's that bad." — Patheos
Posted Nov 8, 2012
86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) " The creators, more than most, understand that a good setting and fun sight gags are secondary to a story with heart. " — Patheos
