Black Souls (2015)
"A quiet, contemplative film that shows how one small act of rebellion and violence can escalate and destroy a family. Great performances and cinematography work hampered by an unnecessary twist ending. "
Salem: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
Furious 7 (2015)
"I'm not ashamed to say (ok, maybe a little) that I cried like a baby at the end - but I didn't ugly cry. A perfect ending to this 7 film ride and they should just stop now and leave on a high note. "
Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
"My mind screams Noooooooo! This movie sucks and is offensive on so many different levels, but damn my lady parts....Jamie Dornan's abs beat me into submission. Every time I think about them any common sense I have goes out the window. "
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)
"Director Matthew Vaughn brings his unique sensibilities and breathes a breath of fresh air to the stagnate Spy Genre. You can't go wrong with Samuel Jackson as a mean mugging, villain who speaks with an hysterically bad lisp. "
"Makes you question what's real and not, but doesn't follow through. Two thirds of a absolutely brilliant film that in the end made me want to throw a brick through the screen. Goes completely off the rails. "
Chasing Life: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015)
"Headed up by series star Italia Ricci, Chasing Life does a nice job of walking the fine line between hope and drama while giving every character a reason to be there. It's a journey worth going on. "
The Fosters: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2015)
"As far as stand alone Christmas specials go, this was a pretty solid outing for the Fosters family and does a lot to push the plot forward, or at the very least give fans a small taste of what's in store for the 2nd half of the season. "
Gotham: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
"A Batman TV Show without you know Batman? Was skeptical at first. The winks and nods to future bat villains are a bit much and some of the procedural aspect are a bit sloppy but the set design and cinematography are gorgeous. "
Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
"Apparently these days all movies have to be dark, grim, joyless, and not allowed to be fun just for the sake of entertaining an audience. I loved every moment of this big, dumb, over the top extravaganza. It's why Summer Blockbusters exist. "
Orphan Black: Season 2 (TV, 2014)
"At the end of the day, no matter how poorly this may be directed, written, and acted, the only thing a good comedy needs to do is make you laugh and this one does it in spades. Funniest comedy of 2014. "
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
"Could have been so much more if not for the relentless focus on Wolverine and Magneto. While their performances were good, just sucked the life out of the film. Felt like a retread of the far superior X-Men: First Class. "
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
"It's official, I think I hate every Spider-Man movie, except Spider-Man 2. Can we please have ONE Spider-Man film that doesn't have The Green Goblin? A decent, but shallow, by the numbers corporate blockbuster that doesn't bring anything new to the table. "
The Other Woman (2014)
The Jungle Book 2 (2003)
47 Ronin (2013)
"47 Ronin is better than the logline would suggest that it would be, but the plot is really confusing and the action is mediocre. Hard to recommend purchasing or renting this Blu-ray when it is so thin on extras. "
"Makes the mistake of taking itself way too seriously. Horror films should be fun and deliver scares; Oculus is a plodding mess that doesn't even follow its own internal logic on a consistent basis. "
Draft Day (2014)
Veronica Mars (2014)
"Anyone who loved the television show and supported the Kickstarter should adore this film. Rob Thomas and the VM crew deliver a brilliantly constructed film that redefines the phrase "fan service." "
The LEGO Movie (2014)
The Collector (2009)
Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)
Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
"The movie fails to make you sympathize with Thorin. I was rooting for him to fail, he'd make a wretched King. Should have been called The Hobbit: Sidequests. I felt like I was watching a Video Game or Theme Park ride pitch and not a real movie. "
Killing Kennedy (2014)
"Killing Kennedy offers a fresh, if not biased take on the lives of two men that unexpectedly intersects and changes the nation forever. Will Rothhaar and Michelle Trachtenberg give the performance of their careers. "
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
"Bullock and Clooney are good at playing themselves, but it felt like they "phoned" it in making the film feel shallow. Some nice visuals, but nothing that we haven't seen in far better Space films. "
The Great Gatsby (2013)
The World's End (2013)
"Throws everything at the wall to see what sticks - Werewolves, vampires, warlocks, love triangles - because what is a tween story without one of those, gay demon hunters, incest...Wait, what? It is a mess, but somehow it works. "
G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)
The Wolverine (2013)
Pacific Rim (2013)
"The movie's main drawing power is also its strongest weakness. Del Toro knows what the audience wants to see, but he doesn't build to it, or make us earn it. You want fights, oh we'll give them to you - every ten minutes. "
White House Down (2013)
The Lone Ranger (2013)
Man of Steel (2013)
"At the end of the day Man of Steel is yet another tedious origin story that boils down to a Real Estate scheme and giant Spider ships. Superman is not Batman, he is not supposed to be dark, gritty, and joyless. Where is the hope? "
This Is the End (2013)
