Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)

"An attractive cast and better-than-average thrills make "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" a lesser, but worthy entry into the series of films based on the late Tom Clancy's characters."

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

"It's the writing and plotting in "Edge of Tomorrow" that sucks. Not the staging of scenes. Not the film's sense of humor. Not the film's quality action sequences."

RoboCop (2014)

""Robocop" is a remake that manages to find its own way. It may lack the social satire of the 1987 original, but it's sharper and more believable than the film that went before."

Murder on the Home Front (2014)

"You've got a classic whodunit story with breezy lead performances and darkly humorous plotting. "

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

""X-Men: Days of Future Past" is more than just a gathering of super-heroes. It's a symphony of superbly coordinated action scenes that, as a whole, will appeal to the mainstream, not just the comic book crowd."

Date And Switch (2014)

""Date and Switch" should have had something new to say about high school friendships. It doesn't. "

Möbius (2014)

""Möbius" makes the international world of espionage and high-dollar finance downright boring. "

Reel Zombies ()

"Shocked to say I liked "Reel Zombies." It's crude, full of salty language and nudity. And, those are the good points. "

Death Do Us Part (2014)

"We have nasty secrets, a body count, plenty of blood, and no suspense. The movie drags. As we wait for the killer to be revealed, we snooze. "

Stage Fright (2014)

"More contrived than clever, "Stage Fright" wants to be the musical version of "Scream." It isn't."

Bad Country (2014)

"Action fans need more than bullets and bodies. "Bad Country" is a disappointment. "

Bordello Death Tales ()

"Despite a few bright ideas, "Bordello Death Tales" is plagued by a lousy screenplay, horrible sets and off-the-charts bad acting. It's terribly difficult to watch, even for hard-core horror fans."

Lizzie Borden Took an Ax (2014)

"Included are the trial and all the trimmings. What's missing is the horror of the event. Except for a few shots of dear old daddy's caved-in face, there's not much gore, even for a TV movie. "

In Fear (2014)

"More coherent writing could have helped. That, or a direct line to the Auto Club. "

Draft Day (2014)

"Kevin Costner would love to have the kind of career comeback that, say, Liam Neeson is enjoying. "Draft Day" won't hurt his chances. But, it won't help them either."

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

"Those merry Muppets are back and on a world tour, no less, in "Muppets Most Wanted." And, while not as good as the 2011 reboot, this follow-up has enough laughs and zippy musical numbers to keep Muppet fans more than happy."

Narco Cultura (2013)

"Right out of the headlines, "Narco Cultura" is a documentary that offers insights into the world of drugs and music, north and south of the U.S.-Mexico border."

Scarecrow ()

"Oh, no! Not another Syfy movie! Yes, kids. If "Scarecrow" seems familiar, you probably saw it on TV. Now, it's on DVD and can't say it got any better."

Game of Thrones: Season 3 (TV, 2013)

" "Game of Thrones: Season 3″ is the most challenging and the most rewarding of the seasons so far, and the Blu-ray/DVD combo available now does it justice. "

The Monuments Men (2014)

"The screenplay is childlike and overly reverential. It's almost as if Clooney is afraid he's going to insult someone by getting a few laughs out of a serious subject. "

The Prey (2013)

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

"A strong lifting from "Chronicle." A dash of "The Exorcist." And, a weak connection to a previous "Paranormal Activity" sequel. Nothing original going here, folks."

Out of the Furnace (2013)

""Out of the Furnace" plays like a less-commercial version of Patrick Swayze's "Next of Kin." The characters are deeper without being complex. In the end, it's just another blood feud. "

Delivery Man (2013)

""Delivery Man" is just a tick away from being a typical Vince Vaughn movie. But, surprisingly, there's just enough charm in this film about the joys of fatherhood to make it an entertaining exception to my Vince Vaughn rule."

Static (2012)

"Any appreciation of the film will come after it's over and you might say, "oh, that's why that happened." I'm not sure the ending is worth the time invested."

I Married a Monster From Outer Space (1958)

""I Married a Monster From Outer Space" is surprisingly well-acted. Everyone is dead serious, and not in a campy way as the title might suggest. It works. There are even some genuinely chilling moments."

The Big Bus (1976)

"Before there was "Airplane," there was "The Big Bus." The granddaddy of the disaster spoof movies came out in 1976, and despite its unevenness, it's quite the hoot."

Resolution (2013)
