100% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 8 "This was a tense and exciting episode of Homeland, as Saul -- one of the most beloved characters on the show -- faced great danger. And while he's safe for the moment, I don't think he'd say Carrie saved him at all. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 21, 2014
80% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 7 "There is a lot going on in this episode of Homeland, which risks reopening old wounds for the show but also manages to drive the bigger story and remain engaging. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 21, 2014
82% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 6 "A strong, portentous episode of Homeland closes out the Carrie/Aayan thread in a sad if satisfactory manner, while also setting up the second half of the season. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 21, 2014

Posted Jul 1, 2014
8.6/10 84% Homeland: Season 3 (TV, 2013) "It seems that one needs to enter this third season of Showtime's Homeland fully aware that the series has long since deviated from its (relatively) realistic approach in Season 1. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 1, 2013
5/10 64% 2 Guns (2013) "Full of been-there, done-that characters, twists, and action beats that are as familiar as houseguests who have overstayed their welcome, know it, and don't care. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 31, 2013

Posted Jun 3, 2013
7/10 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) "The Hangover Part III gets points for changing the franchise formula, as well as for giving the lovably weird Galifianakis the spotlight. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Mar 29, 2012
4/5 17% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) "Brings all the cartoonish insanity of the directors' Crank to the -- let's face it -- cartoonishly insane concept of the Ghost Rider. It's a match made in, er, hell. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 17, 2012
3.5/5 53% Safe House (2012) "It's the Denzel-isms that prove to be the deciding factor in Safe House's success. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 10, 2012

Posted May 26, 2011
3/5 63% Kill the Irishman (2011) "A mishmash of familiar mafia tale beats and rise to power/fall from glory tropes, the film is nonetheless buoyed by a strong cast -- particularly its star, Ray Stevenson, who plays the flagrantly coifed mad bomber Greene. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 17, 2011
3/5 62% Salt (2010) "Even if the picture ultimately winds up being exactly what we figured it would be when we saw the very first preview for it, it still manages to hold our attention throughout. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Mar 22, 2010
3.5/5 43% Brooklyn's Finest (2010) "The film is more inclined to look to the cop dramas of the '70s for its inspiration, pouring on all the quasi-realism and downbeat inclinations that films of that era thrived on. It's a style that suits Fuqua and his actors. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 15, 2010
2/5 53% Green Zone (2010) ""No WMDs! Government evil! Fire bad! Freddy good!" the film roars as it staggers around like the Frankenstein monster that it is, the sewn together parts of previous Greengrass successes. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 15, 2010
2.5/5 19% Cop Out (2010) "Here Smith the director is a hired gun, shooting someone else's words for a change -- the first time in his feature career, in fact. And you know what? It suits him. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 25, 2010
4/5 86% The House of the Devil (2009) "Written, directed, and edited by Ti West, this movie is an old-school tension builder, slowly ratcheting up the anxieties of the audience who, of course, is fully aware that something bad is going to happen. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 26, 2009

Posted Jul 23, 2007
3/5 No Score Yet Perfume "It is overlong and maybe too painstakingly faithful to the source material at times for its own good. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 25, 2007
2.5/5 66% Miss Potter (2007) " Much like star Renée Zellweger's portrayal of its famous title character, Miss Potter is a strange, split-personality kind of thing. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 25, 2007
1.5/5 4% Code Name: The Cleaner (2007) "If Cedric the Entertainer's constant mugging for the camera is not your cup of tea, and a derivative plot, relatively humorless script, and mundane directing aren't up your alley, then best to clean Code Name: The Cleaner off your must-see list right now. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 25, 2007
