Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
61% John Dies at the End (2013) " Coscarelli's direction seems well-suited to the free-wheeling material, bringing a critically light touch to a story with apocalyptic stakes." — Film.com
Posted Jan 2, 2013
81% The Impossible (2012) " ...veers between being overwhelming and overwrought." — Film.com
Posted Dec 18, 2012
64% The Fitzgerald Family Christmas (2012) " A blandly amiable thing, hardly resonant in spite of all the heartache that abounds." — Film.com
Posted Dec 5, 2012
37% The Collection (2012) " For those who are on board, it's a more absurd yet equally efficient bit of grisly fun; for those who never were, don't expect this one to change your mind regarding mindless bloodshed." — Film.com
Posted Nov 27, 2012
56% Citadel (2012) " Just tense enough for just long enough to keep potentially nagging disbelief at bay." — Film.com
Posted Nov 7, 2012
77% The Bay (2012) " Familiar faces and digital tricks are few and far between, making it easy to get caught up in the small-town cover-up at hand..." — Film.com
Posted Oct 31, 2012
5% Silent Hill: Revelation (2012) " Demonstrates what half the budget and twice the story can do to turn a fake nightmare into a real chore." — Film.com
Posted Oct 26, 2012
51% Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012) " A B-movie that's often bloody, sometimes bizarre, but rarely boring." — Film.com
Posted Oct 24, 2012
47% The Comedy (2012) " A seemingly sincere movie about a deeply ironic and unfulfilled man as he belongs to a culture - hell, maybe even an entire generation - terrified of sincerity." — Film.com
Posted Oct 24, 2012
68% Wuthering Heights (2012) " Love is muddy here; babies are both conceived and delivered outdoors, while the far more chaste affairs of Cathy and Heathcliff nonetheless leave them positively filthy." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Oct 19, 2012
5% Nature Calls (2012) " As capably as the plot comes together, the big laughs hardly come." — Film.com
Posted Oct 18, 2012
12% Alex Cross (2012) " Perry is no more out of his depth here than anyone else in the cast." — Film.com
Posted Oct 18, 2012
50% Pusher (2012) " A bit livelier at turning the same screws." — Film.com
Posted Oct 4, 2012
91% Holy Motors (2012) " In terms of pure cinematic sensation, Holy Motors stands as one of the most delightfully enigmatic movies that I've seen in quite some time." — Film.com
Posted Oct 2, 2012
35% Aftershock (2013) " Struggles to strike a tone between intense and comically cruel as it picks off its cast." — Film.com
Posted Oct 2, 2012
12% Red Dawn (2012) " Stands well enough on its own as an efficient, exciting tale of teenage insurgency." — The Playlist
Posted Sep 27, 2012
81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " Far more often than not, Pitch Perfect lives up to its own title." — Film.com
Posted Sep 26, 2012
36% The ABCs of Death (2013) " Has no shortage of inventive, ironic and gruesome sketches, but the novelty of its successes just barely outweighs its stillborn stuff." — Film.com
Posted Sep 25, 2012
65% Antiviral (2013) " Although the climax feels like one last stab by Brandon to echo his father's legacy, the rest of the film suggests the promise of his own distinct, distressing career to come." — Film.com
Posted Sep 25, 2012
87% Frankenweenie (2012) " It's the best thing with Burton's name on it in the past five years." — Film.com
Posted Sep 21, 2012
33% Butter (2012) " Once the wilted satire of Jason Micallef's script is stripped away, what's left is a generally amusing competition comedy." — Film.com
Posted Sep 21, 2012
10% House at the End of the Street (2012) " Bland, bloodless babysitter bait." — Film.com
Posted Sep 21, 2012
50% Trouble with the Curve (2012) " When the stakes are low and the heart is high, the film basically works, with this cast of pros young and old often earning the emotion that is otherwise thrust upon the audience in no uncertain terms." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 20, 2012
85% End of Watch (2012) " Winning enough to forgive some of its more egregious clich├ęs, and exciting enough to ease up on its questionable found-footage logic." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 18, 2012
8% The Babymakers (2012) " By the end of this, you won't want these idiots to reproduce." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 16, 2012
5% The Cold Light of Day (2012) " While it's hardly lacking in action, the action scenes are almost always lacking..." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 16, 2012
31% Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) " With so many scenes consisting of mindless zombies chasing after identical clones, it's hard to know whether one's describing the action or the audience at this point." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 14, 2012
55% For a Good Time, Call... (2012) " Smutty, short and sweet." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Sep 4, 2012
76% The Ambassador (2012) " A frequently amusing exploration of the dual frustrations of deep-seated corruption and dizzying bureaucracy." — Film.com
Posted Aug 29, 2012
56% Bachelorette (2012) " [Compared to Bridesmaids]... this is more of an ensemble effort, gamely led by the trio (and potentially awesome law firm) of Dunst, Fisher and Caplan." — Film.com
Posted Aug 28, 2012
20% Thunderstruck (2012) " On cable and DVD, it'll either be ignored or endured as lightweight programming. However, for anyone who insists on shelling out the full price of a ticket, Thunderstruck may prove to be something of a groaner." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 24, 2012
4% The Apparition (2012) " Feels like mediocrity whittled down to ineptitude." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 24, 2012
86% Robot & Frank (2012) " This is Langella's show, and although the story seems slight and straightforward, Christopher D. Ford's screenplay finds more complicated shades of emotion for the veteran actor to explore by the end." — Film.com
Posted Aug 22, 2012
57% Sparkle (2012) " Generally improves on the source material as much as possible while still succumbing to some of the same hoary showbiz beats." — Film.com
Posted Aug 16, 2012
65% The Expendables 2 (2012) " For better and worse, this ultra-violent follow-up gives the audience what it wants in full force." — Film.com
Posted Aug 16, 2012
87% ParaNorman (2012) " In any given year, it would stand as a lovingly crafted animated endeavor made up of equal parts creepiness and caring, mercifully spare in its use of potty humor and pop-culture references. In 2012, it ranks as one of the year's best." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 15, 2012
89% Compliance (2012) " A fairly deliberate and effective piece of provocation." — Film.com
Posted Aug 14, 2012
55% The Bourne Legacy (2012) " One analyst spits out that "he's Treadstone without the inconsistencies." It seems that Legacy is Bourne with some added in." — Film.com
Posted Aug 8, 2012
79% Ruby Sparks (2012) " Kazan proves fascinatingly game in the dual roles of creator and creation, assessing with her screenplay the weaknesses that drive men to pursue an elusive romantic paradigm while crafting for herself a role of some considerable range." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Aug 8, 2012
78% Killer Joe (2012) " The summertime blockbusters can't rival the big-drop rollercoaster audacity of this finely wrought mess." — eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 6, 2012
74% Hope Springs (2012) " Much like the marriage with which it's concerned, the more Hope Springs tries to spice things up, the harder it becomes to enjoy. The moments when either works, though, really ought to count for something." — Film.com
Posted Aug 6, 2012
51% Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012) " We jump back and forth between so many other half-hearted threads that it can feel a bit like surfing between channels that strictly show episodes of a never-made "Wimpy Kid" TV show." — Film.com
Posted Aug 2, 2012
21% 360 (2012) " We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title)." — Film.com
Posted Aug 1, 2012
42% Step Up Revolution (2012) " With the most wooden leads of the series to date - an MMA fighter and a "So You Think You Can Dance" alum - the drama between the dancing has never felt more interminable." — Film.com
Posted Jul 27, 2012
72% Klown (2012) " Anyone in the market for a good dose of bad taste should make a point of checking this out." — Film.com
Posted Jul 25, 2012
37% Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) " These films are generally good at being good enough, and the fourth installment, Ice Age: Continental Drift, doesn't deviate from that modest tradition." — Film.com
Posted Jul 13, 2012
68% Extraterrestrial (2012) " If you only see one film this month about characters seeking a friend for the end of the world, this is the more charming of the two." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 11, 2012
29% The Magic of Belle Isle (2012) " So resolutely inoffensive that it flirts with Hallmark Hall of Fame territory." — Film.com
Posted Jul 6, 2012
73% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) " A prominently placed poster touting Einstein's declaration that "imagination is more important than knowledge" is just about the only thing that passes for a ballsy move in a film fearful of both qualities." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 4, 2012
43% To Rome with Love (2012) " As generally affable as it is inarguably minor." — Orlando Weekly
Posted Jul 4, 2012
72% Wish You Were Here (2013) " Examines the toll that guilt has on well-meaning thirtysomethings to mostly intriguing effect." — Film.com
