3/5 72% Jurassic World (2015) "The folly of man is on full display in Jurassic World. Unfortunately, it's happening both in front of the camera and behind it. " ‐ Student Edge

2/5 33% Entourage (2015) "Once again, nothing happens, just for longer. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Jun 5, 2015
3/5 49% San Andreas (2015) "When you're watching the impossibly charismatic former wrestler on screen, you'll not only forgive the movie around him, you'll want to throw Pulitzers, Nobel Prizes and even Miss World crowns at it. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 28, 2015
2.5/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) "Yet, not even [Brad Bird's] CV could have prepared him for the task of wrapping his head around a Damon Lindelof screenplay. Mission: No, For Real, Like Actually Impossible. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 25, 2015
4.5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Mad Max: Fury Road is one hell of an achievement; 'hell' being the operative word, given how long director George Miller spent toiling to develop the damned thing. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 21, 2015
3.5/5 94% Spy (2015) "Watching Jason Statham skewer his tough-man persona is just one of Spy's delights... It's here you can see the feminist twist on this take-down of the 007 franchise: dudes make everything worse. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 21, 2015
3.5/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) "Above all else, Pitch Perfect 2 is a sleek joke-delivery system, interrupting its playful songs with goofy non sequiturs and good-spirited gags. It's basically the Jimmy Fallon of musicals. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted May 5, 2015
3/5 61% Unfriended (2015) "Even her Spotify account becomes possessed. Yes, the killer is calling from inside the house... music playlist. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 29, 2015
4/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "You'd be surprised how much slack you'll cut a film that features superheroes gently ribbing one another for 142 minutes. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 21, 2015
4/5 97% It Follows (2015) "That ceaseless slow march will likely become 2015's scariest image. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 84% While We're Young (2015) "While We're Young is the Antz to Bad Neighbours' A Bug's Life, and not just because Adam Driver looks like a giant grasshopper. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 12, 2015
2.5/5 80% Black Sea (2015) "Jude Law completes with Black Sea his transformation into one of the UK's most imposing screen presences. This, we were not expecting. What next? Ray Winstone, now out of a job, auditioning for Alfie 2? " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Apr 7, 2015
3.5/5 81% Furious 7 (2015) "The most gleefully meat-headed franchise going has intersected with real-life tragedy and handled it with surprising grace. Meat-headed grace, sure, but grace nonetheless. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 31, 2015
3.5/5 83% Cinderella (2015) "The Cinderella fable is a lot like Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah": it's been covered. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 22, 2015
2/5 29% Insurgent (2015) "Maybe that's why signing up for this sound-a-like saga was secretly a smart move [for Woodley]. When you're watching Insurgent, trying to quell the boredom, all you can think about is how much better Shailene is than the movie around her. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 17, 2015
3.5/5 86% Top Five (2014) "The incomparable Chris Rock is not known for impersonations, but he mimics Woody Allen, Richard Linklater, Louis C.K. and even Federico Fellini in his directorial pet project Top Five. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 13, 2015
2.5/5 56% Focus (2015) "If I wanted to see a thief not have a good time, I'd just find footage of Robin Thicke hearing the "Blurred Lines" plagiarism verdict. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 12, 2015
4.5/5 74% Inherent Vice (2015) "Movies don't need to be better than the book. They only need to be the best movie version of the book. And Inherent Vice is that. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3.5/5 52% The Interview (2014) "Super sloppy and very, very silly, The Interview at least doesn't pull its punches. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3/5 26% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "You'd have to be craving something highly specific and more than a little freaky to be in the mood for Jupiter Ascending, the latest multi-million-dollar weird-fest from the Wachowski siblings, Andy and Lana. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 12, 2015
4/5 96% Citizenfour (2014) "Citizenfour (named after Snowden's codename of choice) is paced like the great paranoid-man political thrillers of the 1970s... Poitras makes this potentially-tedious exercise seem claustrophobic in the most enthralling way. " ‐ Student Edge
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2/5 79% The Theory of Everything (2014) "For those deadened by the Transformers saga comes The Theory of Everything, a Stephen Hawking biopic to remind us even prestige movies made with good intentions can be interminable too. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Feb 12, 2015
5/5 99% Selma (2015) "Selma's achievements defy those of regular films. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Feb 1, 2015
2.5/5 90% Wild (2014) "I've always believed Nick Hornby books make for better movies. Here, a Nick Hornby screenplay was probably better left as someone else's book. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Jan 18, 2015
4/5 72% Into the Woods (2014) "Into the Woods is a musical unruined by the transition from stage to screen, which is pretty much the best we can hope for when it comes to Stephen Sondheim adaptations. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 21, 2014
2/5 60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Let's call it the 'seafood extender' of sequels. It takes up room on the plate, but there's no meat here. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 19, 2014
4/5 91% Birdman (2014) "Hollywood keeps trying to convince us with each new blockbuster that we've "never seen anything like this before." In 2014, it took a technically-audacious yet inexpensive backstage satire for that sentiment to actually ring true. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 17, 2014
4/5 98% Mr. Turner (2014) "Mike Leigh's late-career fascination with the turning of the seasons and corporeal decline is illustrated with great humour and poetry in Mr. Turner. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 14, 2014
3.5/5 89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "Do we celebrate its strides toward cultural diversity, or cringe at the christening of its setting as 'San Fransokyo', a hybrid Japanese-American town where everyone looks only a little foreign? " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 11, 2014
4/5 90% The Imitation Game (2014) "The Imitation Game is a great biopic. The trouble is, biopics just ain't that great. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 10, 2014
3/5 51% Unbroken (2014) "Though viewers suffering from 'inspirational biopic' fatigue won't be energised by its conventional storytelling, the tale within is so unlikely and so empowering only the steeliest of viewers could keep from being moved. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 8, 2014
3/5 58% Finding Fela! (2014) "Fela Kuti was a one-in-a-million figure with indomitable presence. What film could possibly contain him? " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 7, 2014
3.5/5 86% The Mule (2014) "Angus Sampson co-directs and stars in the most unglamorous vanity project of recent memory... A slickly-produced black comedy. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 1, 2014
3.5/5 92% Heaven Adores You (2015) "Heaven Adores You is a fond remembrance of a talented musician by those who knew and loved him most. We should all be so lucky to score a tribute like this when we're gone. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 1, 2014
3.5/5 100% Nas: Time Is Illmatic (2014) "As humbling as hagiographies come. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 1, 2014
2.5/5 34% Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) "The Coens were never moved to make a second Big Lebowski, but Horrible Bosses 2, this we get. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Dec 1, 2014
4.5/5 95% Nightcrawler (2014) "Jake Gyllenhall gets his Rupert Pupkin on in Nightcrawler, the heir apparent to Martin Scorsese's own satire of media infamy and celebrity (at any cost), The King of Comedy. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 23, 2014
4/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) "The revolution isn't just televised in the latest Hunger Games instalment; it's subdivided. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 19, 2014
3.5/5 97% The Dark Horse (2016) "Small in scope but significant in stature, Robertson delivers in The Dark Horse a sensitive tale with a crowd-pleasing punch, even as it declines to shy away from the bleakness of its characters' lives. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 18, 2014
3.5/5 19% Let's Be Cops (2014) "Reader, do not underestimate my willingness to watch the stars of New Girl screw around with one-half of Key and Peele when I recommend to you the undeniably conventional Let's Be Cops. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 11, 2014
3/5 71% Interstellar (2014) "Interstellar can be pretty fun when it wants to be. The trouble is, 'fun' has never been atop director Christopher Nolan's list of priorities. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 5, 2014
1.5/5 47% The Judge (2014) "Judge not, lest ye be judged. Easy to say if you didn't have to sit through David Dobkin's cloying courtroom melodrama. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 5, 2014
4.5/5 89% Obvious Child (2014) "A modern, human comedy that tackles a controversial subject with ease. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 5, 2014
3.5/5 85% John Wick (2014) "The depth of one man's thirst for retribution is immeasurable in John Wick, a carnivorous thriller not ruined, shockingly, by the suddenly-useful vacant stare of leading man Keanu Reeves. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Nov 2, 2014
4/5 77% Fury (2014) "If you want the quick sell, rest assured Fury is a grisly WW2 flick with a seeming unquenchable appetite for destruction. But there's a little more to Fury than the quick sell would imply. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 28, 2014
2.5/5 47% Taking Woodstock (2009) "At no point did I feel like I was at Woodstock and surely that was the whole point. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 21, 2014
4.5/5 80% Humpday (2009) "It's a comedy that grows beyond any Apatovian expectations and expertly avoids being an ode to 'Gay panic' a'la I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 21, 2014
5/5 100% The Last Picture Show (1971) "The Last Picture Show is indeed one of the greatest movies ever made (although I hardly think the scorekeepers were waiting for my vote to come in before they declared it such). " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 21, 2014
4.5/5 100% Repulsion (1965) "The young Catherine Deneuve (she was 22 at the time of filming) gives a performance so unsettling and so precise, I can barely believe she grew into such a confident screen presence. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 21, 2014
3/5 15% Year One (2009) "In the beginning there was light, which was closely followed by the fart joke. " ‐ Quickflix
Posted Oct 21, 2014
