Posted May 22, 2015
B+ 98% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Mad Max: Fury Road is what so many films strive for and so few achieve - an experience that feels somewhat unique in what it accomplishes. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 13, 2015
B- 69% Kung Fu Killer (2015) "It's an exciting watch, but more than that it's a respectful appreciation of Hong Kong cinema and all those who came before. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 11, 2015
B 20% Skin Trade (2015) "One area where the script unexpectedly shines is an ending which completes the story, respects the reality of loss and sets up a sequel I sincerely hope we get to see. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 11, 2015
B 56% Cooties (2015) "Cooties is a ridiculously good time at the movies for viewers who like their laughs with a side of disembowelment. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted May 4, 2015
B 86% We Are Still Here (2015) "We Are Still Here is familiar in many ways, but a clear love for the genre and a ridiculously bloody third act go a long way towards making it a memorable entry in the haunted house canon. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 10, 2015
B 78% The Sisterhood Of Night (2015) "It avoids the exaggeration of Mean Girls and the visual bombast of The Craft to tell a very real story about the pressures of fitting in, the dangers of standing out and the ultimate need each of us has for companionship. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Apr 9, 2015
B- 75% That Guy Dick Miller (2015) "It's clear that That Guy Dick Miller needs more Dick, but fans of the man will find enough here to justify the time investment. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 30, 2015
83% The Last Days (2014) "This Spanish production tackles a familiar subject -- the post apocalyptic world -- and imbues it not only with a fresh premise but also with real heart and character. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Mar 16, 2015
C+ 67% Girl House (2015) "The film fully embraces its love of blood and gore with some stellar practical effects work that serves to heighten the horror. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 20, 2015
C- 64% The Rewrite (2015) "Hugh Grant ultimately makes the film an endurable experience, but he can't stop it from being a forgettable one. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 20, 2015
B 80% WYRMWOOD: Road Of The Dead (2015) "There's a relentless energy here - in the story, characters and camerawork - and it makes for a wildly enjoyable ride for fans of old-school Jackson, Raimi and the like. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Feb 20, 2015
D+ 14% Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015) "It's early, but Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has secured a healthy lead as the worst sequel of 2015. Your move Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. " ‐ Film School Rejects

Posted Feb 19, 2015
100% The Overnight (2015) "It continues Patrick Brice's (admittedly short) trend of delivering very funny films with a second, more dramatic layer underneath, but even if the relationship drama fails to move you the laughter created by the dialogue and visuals surely will. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 26, 2015

Posted Jan 26, 2015
B- No Score Yet The Summer Of Sangaile "The narrative issues are undeniable, but there's an emotional and visual current at work here that leaves feelings and images floating in your head. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 26, 2015
A- 96% Argo (2012) "Argo is crackerjack entertainment deserving of both awards and box office as it offers up two hours of laughs, suspense and history in an extremely enjoyable package. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 13, 2015
B- 81% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) "It's a familiar message, but it's one told well with wit and heart. And a whole truckload of metaphors. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 6, 2015
C+ 66% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) "A Walk Among the Tombstones does a fantastic job introducing its capable and engaging main character, but it bungles the execution of the film's narrative as time is spent with unnecessary subplots and supporting characters that add nothing to the tale. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 6, 2015
B- 77% Fury (2014) "The cast is uniformly fine even if some of them do fit too simply into the roles of soldiers hardened by war, but it's Lerman and LaBeouf that stand out. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B+ 92% Dear White People (2014) "Dear White People succeeds because it delivers its message with common sense and wisdom instead of a heavy hand. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B- 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "A Most Wanted Man is exactly what you'd expect from the director of The American, and while that assessment will mean different things to different people the film remains a meticulously crafted adaptation of John le Carre's bestselling novel. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 5, 2015
C+ 73% Oculus (2014) "Oculus is well-acted, looks quite good, and manages some moments of entertainment, but as the minutes tick by it grows weaker and weaker until its final cheat designed to allow for a shocker ending. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 5, 2015
B- 90% The Guest (2014) "While Stevens is the highlight the rest of the cast does entertaining work too including Lance Reddick and Joel David Moore in small roles. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 5, 2015
C+ 70% Honeymoon (2014) "Honeymoon tells a tight tale that sticks to it guns past its final frame, but revealing way too much far too soon immensely damages the film's overall effect " ‐ Film School Rejects

Posted Jan 4, 2015
D+ 28% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "Ridley Scott and his quartet of screenwriters hint at a handful of ideas deserving of exploration, but none of them survive the frogs, locusts, crocodiles and other plagues - the most devastating of which is excessive and unimpressive CGI. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 4, 2015
C+ 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "The final installment of Peter Jackson's trilogy adapting J.R.R.

Posted Jan 4, 2015

Posted Jan 3, 2015
B+ 98% The Babadook (2014) "It's incredibly chilling, but the horror doesn't take away from the raw emotion of a mother struggling against herself and stuck between connecting with her child or hurting him. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 3, 2015
B+ 98% Boyhood (2014) "Arquette in particular unearths meaty pockets of raw emotion along her character's journey through a performance that reminds us of her immense talent. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 2, 2015
C+ 64% Beside Still Waters (2014) "Beside Still Waters grows a bit choppy in the third act, but like the best ensemble films the ensemble itself is enough of a reason to travel these rough narrative waters. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 18, 2014
B+ 89% Frozen (2013) "As gorgeous-looking and highly amusing as the film is, it's the songs that deliver much of the emotional weight. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 8, 2014
B+ 95% A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) "Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour's feature debut is a gorgeously-photographed and highly unconventional vampire tale about the willful ignorance sometimes required to see the best in the people we suck on and sometimes even love. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 20, 2014
C 33% The Brass Teapot (2013) "The energetic lead performances bring some smiles for fans of Angarano and Temple. The story is less successful though as aside from its unique premise it has very little to offer thanks to its very familiar moral. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 17, 2014
B- 77% Rosewater (2014) "Bahari's triumph is real, impressive and relevant. Rosewater is a pleasant feature debut. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 14, 2014
32% Extraterrestrial (2014) "There's no denying it's a nice change from the usual supernatural shenanigans, but the characters, actions and denouement leave a bit too much to be desired. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 21, 2014
B- 56% Suburban Gothic (2015) "Richard Bates Jr.'s second film, Suburban Gothic, is a bit rough around the edges at times, but none of that gets in the way of the high energy and generous laughs packed into a tight and very funny 90 minutes. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 13, 2014
B+ 95% Whiplash (2014) "Whiplash is somewhat of a revelation in both its lead actors and in its ability to overcome a troublesome second act, and like many of the best films it also leaves audiences talking and debating the merits of its conclusion. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Oct 6, 2014
C- 0% Kite (2014) "Every exterior is foggy to diminish how far we can see... ie how far the production design could afford to make look like a rundown near future. " ‐ Film School Rejects

Posted Aug 21, 2014
B- 56% Coldwater (2014) "Strong lead performances and attractive cinematography are occasionally overwhelmed by a spotty script, but the end product is suspenseful and compelling enough and marks Boudousqué, Burns and Grashaw as talents to watch. " ‐ Film School Rejects
