92% The End Of The Tour (2015) "Torturous. Fitzgerald, Hemmingway, Salinger and...David Foster Wallace? Come on, you never heard of him or his book. This movie is just an ad for another book, Primary Colors. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Aug 21, 2015
66% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "Henry Cavill won the evolutionary sweepstakes and even without being Ritchie's object of desire, he's the best thing in the movie. Everything else is boring, stunted and a "who cares"? " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Aug 13, 2015
93% The Gift (2015) "The surprise emergence of a highly talented writer-director. Bravo to Bateman for taking on such a tough role. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Aug 7, 2015
40% Irrational Man (2015) "Dostoyevsky, Kant, Sartre and the standard Woody Allen May-December romance. Reaffirms Allen's belief that intellect wins the ladies. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Jul 31, 2015
60% Southpaw (2015) "Gyllenhaal is fantastic. A terrific boxing film that makes the Mayweather-Pacquiao match look like a kindergarten puppet show. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jul 24, 2015
85% Trainwreck (2015) "Not as raunchy as you want it to be. Bill Hader's voice was like nails scratching a blackboard. He wears a bad wig. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jul 16, 2015

Posted Jul 6, 2015
27% Terminator Genisys (2015) "Only Stephen Hawkings could understand the plot of T-G. It's great to see the Arnold of PUMPING IRON resurrected by CGI. Why couldn't that Arnold be in the whole movie? " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jul 2, 2015
65% Magic Mike XXL (2015) "So howling terrible - it's a must see! An insult to women - especially women past 25. Tatum's likeability survives. The only thing missing is SHOWGIRLS Gina Gershon. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Jun 29, 2015

Posted Jun 11, 2015
32% Entourage (2015) "A disgrace. Every viewer will know more about the inner workings of Hollywood than the guys who made this bore. Stale, dated, and dull - except for Ronda Rousey. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jun 3, 2015
90% Love & Mercy (2015) "A sadist father, a sadist therapist, a severe mental illness, and a brilliant career. It's all here without the whitewash of movies based of a real person's life. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jun 1, 2015
No Score Yet The Fourth Noble Truth (2015) "An aging movie star who is used t o getting everything he wants, is still miserable. A clever film engaging Buddhist philosophy. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted May 20, 2015
97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Awesome! Up-ends the genre. No dialogue, no exposition, no explanation and no kissing. Just pure energy (and heroic stunt work)! " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted May 15, 2015
84% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) "Beautifully rendered but the subject that drives the story - English class distinction - is subsumed by the three suitors' pursuit of the independent heroine. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted May 14, 2015
8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "Reese, why? Comedy for you is cursed. Vergara shows she can deliver chemistry but she can now retire the accent. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted May 6, 2015
74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "Black Widow chooses the Hulk over Thor? Females everywhere say "Huh?" The Avengers show absolutely no interest in each other. AGE OF ULTRON is soulless. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Mar 12, 2015
57% Focus (2015) "Let's hope this slips away before everyone realizes that terrific hot chick from The Wolf of Wall Street stars in this. Will Smith goes through it looking angry at his agent. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Feb 25, 2015
75% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) "Perfect. And a massacre worth seeing. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Feb 15, 2015
25% Jupiter Ascending (2015) "A girl from the "projects" would rather stay put than be the hereditary Queen of a bunch of planets including Earth. Reincarnation gets a slap in the face. The reconstituted Queen hates her kids. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Jan 15, 2015
72% Big Eyes (2014) "Another Tim Burton fairy tale. Adams and Waltz miscast. The screenplay is shallow and has no depth. The ham-fisted acting doesn't help. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Dec 3, 2014
75% Enemy (2014) "A powerful and challenging film with a great deal of psychological symbolism. If it's a hallucination or alternate universe experience is up to you. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer

Posted Nov 29, 2014
90% The Imitation Game (2014) "Hollywood biopics infantilizes its audiences. If someone's true story ended badly, it's a text epilogue that tells us what happened. When Hollywood does another biopic of Jesus's life they will leave out the crucifixion. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 28, 2014
88% Foxcatcher (2014) "Carell is mesmerizing but nominations should also go to Tatum for an equally vanity-free performance. The acting succeeds while the story lacks a more in-depth study of a very complex relationship. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 28, 2014
72% American Sniper (2015) "Would be a peerless film if Clint Eastwood kept to Kyle's fascinating military career and left out the annoying, under-written personal story. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 24, 2014
80% The Theory of Everything (2014) "A sweet fairy tale of the marriage between a living legend, anti-God "saint" and the wife who attended to his every need. A nice whitewash. It's not a warts-and-all film. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 14, 2014
94% Whiplash (2014) "WHIPLASH offers Simmons a truly grand opportunity to be the vilest character of the year. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 8, 2014
72% Interstellar (2014) "Dazzling, frightening and thrilling. Pure cinematic magic. But the philosophical points presented - love and survival - are contradictory. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 7, 2014
92% Birdman (2014) "There should be nominations and awards for all involved - Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Cinematography. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Nov 1, 2014
85% John Wick (2014) "The brilliant frontrunner of the genre. Hail the return of Reeves back on top in this exciting "kill-them-all" aria. The soundtrack is fantastic. Keanu, stay with this franchise and away from romantic movies. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 23, 2014
77% Kill the Messenger (2014) "It's his Watergate. He has a "Deep Throat". Terrific thriller with a great performance by Renner but fails to bring the family's lives to life. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 10, 2014
22% Dracula Untold (2014) "Luke Evans puts sexual energy and masculinity into the legend. It's dark, moody and I'm ready for the sequel. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 10, 2014
37% Stephen King's A Good Marriage (2014) "Every wife of a serial killer is clueless? I doubt it but A GOOD MARRIAGE is terrific. Directed by Peter Askin, it is wildly tense and at times funny. The bravo performance goes to a sexy, hysterical Allen. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 1, 2014
88% Gone Girl (2014) "Thankfully, its true to the book. Fincher faithfully captures the cruel dynamics of a ruined marriage. If only we saw why these two people hated each other. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Oct 1, 2014
94% Love Is Strange (2014) "Unrealistic premise that drags on. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Sep 24, 2014
43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) "This sequel has girth. The filmmakers got the magnificent unclothed Eva Green as cinema's deadliest femme fatale but Jessica Alba gets star billing? " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Sep 3, 2014
23% Tammy (2014) "I want more Tammy. I want the franchise, the book, the FX series and the musical. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
Posted Jul 2, 2014
52% Jersey Boys (2014) "A sloppy, lazy, energy-free back lot production. Everything is wrong except the music. The dreadful "dee's," "dem's" and "does" are as shameful as the clumsy acting. Eastwood proves he has limitations. " ‐ Las Vegas Informer
