"What a terrific film, what a technical achievement. If you were impressed three years ago with the special effects in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' and surely you were, prepare to be blown away with this sequel. "
"As good as this 'Transformers' looks, and the visuals are the only reason to see this spectacle, the flawless effects become overbearing after nearly three hours. (I was checking my watch after 90 minutes.) Enough is too much. "
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
"Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonás, have penned a fantastic yet credible story of courage, friendship, and survival. Even the title, 'Gravity,' is appropriate in its dual simplicity. (This) is a perfect movie. Seeing it in IMAX-3D is perfection plus. "
Lee Daniels' The Butler (2013)
"Both (Daniels) and Strong have compressed an engrossing saga covering the Civil Rights Movement, five presidents, a family's generational growth, and a love story into 132 minutes. It had to be a daunting task, but it works "
The Wolverine (2013)
"Marvel has the most tortured, flawed superheroes in the comic book universe. Proof positive is substantiated throughout 'The Wolverine,' arguably the best of the shiv-wristed franchise. It is also the most grueling to watch. "
Despicable Me 2 (2013)
The Lone Ranger (2013)
The Heat (2013)
World War Z (2013)
The Great Gatsby (2013)
"It is all about style: ultra colorful, superb costuming, knock-out set design, and all in 3-D. That last ingredient pops the imagery past one's eyes and deep into the brain cells. Way past my comfort zone. "
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)
"It is not (Bruce Willis') fault he has grown more than a tad too old to play John McClane (for the 5th time since 1988), but he can be blamed for signing on to such a script-shallow, decibel-deafening blast-fest. "
Cloud Atlas (2012)
The Bourne Legacy (2012)
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
"The trick with 'The Avengers' is to satisfy each superhero's fan base while simultaneously divvying out each hero's scenes in equal portions. Director-screenwriter Joss Whedon has pulled it off with muscle flexing aplomb. "
The Three Stooges (2012)
The Iron Lady (2012)
War Horse (2011)
"The story is reminiscent of 'Courage of Lassie' (1946) since it involves a beloved pet, of sorts, that is thrust into a world war, and whose survival, let alone return to its home base, is fraught with impossibility upon impossibility. "
Tower Heist (2011)
"The production overall is breezy and fun, with a nonstop pace after the first half hour. That is when the action really kicks in. The on location filming, particularly Trump Tower and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, is superb. "
Real Steel (2011)
"After all the 'Transformers' exposure over the last few years, who would have guessed more battling bots would hook our interest? Maybe it is because 'Real Steel's' bots need humans to think for them. "
Cowboys & Aliens (2011)
"(The leads) have the necessary chemistry to carry 'Cowboys & Aliens' for its rip-roaring two hours. True, Daniel Craig handles all the rough and tough physicality, while the elder Harrison Ford is, appropriately, much more reserved. "
