Posted May 5, 2013
71% Dead Man's Burden (2013) " Dead Man's Burden isn't [great], but it's not a bad horse opera and is unflinching in its depictions of harshness and violence." — Sci-Fi Weekly
Posted May 5, 2013
71% Barrymore (2012) " In spite of creating a CGI world around Plummer, much is lost in this translation, making an impressive performance from him seem inert." — StaciWilson.com

Posted Mar 26, 2013

80% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) " An epic soap opera obscured by high style and buoyed by Ryan Gosling's 8-pack abs, The Place Beyond the Pines is really nothing more than delicious drivel masquerading as a serious drama." — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Mar 13, 2013
53% Come Out And Play (2013) " A relentlessly routine remake." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Mar 5, 2013
59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) " It's more 'studio' than 'Sam' for sure. But, children who have not seen the original should take to it." — Yahoo! Movies

Posted Feb 1, 2013
80% Warm Bodies (2013) " Romance with a capital R ensues, love conquers all and so on and so forth. It's clichéd (yet makes fun of itself in the process) but cute." — Inside Horror
Posted Feb 1, 2013
65% Mama (2013) " I rather liked the first half - but, caution: cliches abound, and don't go in expecting much based on the much-bandied Guillermo del Toro name. " — Yahoo! Movies
Posted Jan 18, 2013
32% Gangster Squad (2013) " While it is true Gangster Squad could not quite hold its balance between over the top camp ala Dick Tracy and taking itself as seriously as L.A. Confidential I'll admit, I enjoyed it." — Yahoo! Movies

Posted Nov 18, 2012
92% Skyfall (2012) " More than anything, Skyfall is about the Bond girls. They've come a long way, baby. Fully-formed, strong-thinking, and smart, pivotal characters, Skyfall focuses firmly on M, and rookie Eve." — StaciWilson.com
Posted Nov 7, 2012

Posted Nov 6, 2012

Posted Nov 6, 2012
50% Vamps (2012) " While it did feel more like an extended sitcom to me than an actual film, I must say I found it fun." — Horror.com
