No Score Yet Buster's Mal Heart "Whether he's playfully interacting with his wife and daughter, or delivering a madman's rant to thin air, Malek has the range to be utterly charming, utterly creepy, or both at once. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 12, 2016
40% Katie Says Goodbye "Even if first-time writer-director Wayne Roberts is sympathetic to the plight he's chosen for the protagonist, his film never burrows deep enough under her skin to make the string of miserable scenarios connect in a meaningful way. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 11, 2016
90% Queen of Katwe (2016) "Quietly radical in enough ways to make you cheer despite the cliches. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 11, 2016
65% The Land (2016) "There's enough on screen, beyond Lendeborg's confident star turn, to label Caple as a filmmaker to watch. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 27, 2016
56% Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? (2016) "It's a bold choice to devote a solid minute of the running time to the famed "Macbeth" monologue including the line, "a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing." Bold, and like the rest of the movie, a little too self-aware. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 20, 2016
38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "Every bit as noisy, brain-numbing and lowbrow as its predecessor, the Michael Bay production never strays from basic blockbuster formula. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jun 2, 2016
28% Warcraft (2016) "The final product brings to mind those animated advertisements for iPhone app games. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 24, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "Disappointingly [succumbs] to an exhausting case of been-there-done-that-itis. " ‐ Variety
Posted May 9, 2016
No Score Yet Little Boxes "Even as some of the supporting players and subplots veer toward caricature, the family dynamics at the film's center remain entirely relatable. " ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 17, 2016
28% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) "This 14-years-later sequel is every bit as sitcom-ish and saccharine as its predecessor, but considerably less distinctive. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 21, 2016
43% Miracles from Heaven (2016) "If there are miracles everywhere we look, who wants to waste time on a movie this middling? " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 15, 2016
100% Hush (2016) "Silence is golden in "Hush," one of the more inspired concoctions to emerge from the busy Blumhouse horror-thriller assembly line in recent years. " ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 13, 2016
35% The Other Side of the Door (2016) "The type of sporadically silly and patently predictable horror pic that would look like filler on Syfy's weekend lineup, "The Other Side of the Door" brings virtually nothing new to the supernatural genre. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 24, 2016
0% Cabin Fever (2016) "This dud sets a new standard for the term 'pointless remake.' " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 12, 2016
100% Under the Gun (2016) ""Gun" acknowledges the solutions to this ongoing problem are neither easy nor obvious, while persuasively arguing that more, surely, can be done. " ‐ Variety
Posted Feb 10, 2016
96% Gleason (2016) "Clay Tweel's emotionally wrenching documentary chronicles NFL star Steve Gleason's battle with ALS. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 30, 2016
No Score Yet As You Are "A promising and impressively self-assured debut for 23-year-old filmmaker Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, "As You Are" is crafted with the confidence and skill of a veteran, but also the youthful eye of someone not far removed from his protagonists. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 27, 2016
79% Joshy (2016) "One of the saddest comedies ever made about boys behaving badly at a bachelor party, "Joshy" offers a strange mix of elements that never quite add up. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 25, 2016
96% Weiner (2016) "A rollicking and never-dull insider's view of a political campaign that leaves fascinating questions unanswered. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 25, 2016
67% Trash Fire "An aggressively unpleasant black comedy with modest horror flourishes. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 24, 2016
84% Tallulah (2016) "Heder's script likely won't please those who prefer their indie dramas naturalistic and event-free. But the freewheeling storytelling enacted here has an excellent anchor in the grounded work of the ensemble cast. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 24, 2016
77% The Fundamentals of Caring (2016) "With material this familiar, casting is crucial. And Burnett has a pair of aces up his sleeve in Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts ... " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 23, 2016
82% Naz & Maalik (2016) "Taken as a whole, "Naz & Maalik" is more of a curiosity piece than a magnet for any sort of discourse, let alone controversy. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 20, 2016
8% Norm of the North (2016) "[Wall's] visually unimaginative style ... may work, barely, in increments of fifteen minutes or less, but fails to engage over 90 minutes on the big screen. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jan 14, 2016
31% Daddy's Home (2015) "The first PG-13 comedy from R-rated laffer auteur Sean Anders ("Horrible Bosses 2," "That's My Boy") winds up an unpalatable mix with little to satisfy families or anyone who likes to laugh. " ‐ Variety
Posted Dec 22, 2015
25% Condemned (2015) "It's hard to be charitable about Gesner's intentions while his contemptible characters are successively obliterated for cheap laughs. " ‐ Variety
Posted Nov 16, 2015
18% Jem and the Holograms (2015) "The film seems inexplicably embarrassed by its roots, instead serving up half-baked and self-consciously contemporary drama that no one in the sure-to-be minimal theatrical audience will remember quite so fondly some 30 years on. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 22, 2015
76% Goosebumps (2015) "Turns an endearing collection of silly spooky stories into a busy, noisy, soulless eyesore. " ‐ Variety
Posted Oct 5, 2015
34% The Green Inferno (2015) "A project that boasts all the appeal (and aroma) of a carcass rotting in the rainforest. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 27, 2015
24% Captive (2015) "True crime and Christian filmmaking collide with more subtlety than either genre is typically known for in "Captive." " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 17, 2015
55% Hyena Road (2016) "Alternately detailed and derivative, thesp-filmmaker Paul Gross' third feature has a relatively offbeat point of view that only partially masks its formulaic characters and narrative twists. " ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 15, 2015
97% Being Evel (2015) "Even if Daniel Junge's documentary falls a bit short of its goal, it deserves points for trying. " ‐ Variety

Posted Jul 30, 2015
88% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 11 "This week's The Walking Dead may not have pleased the adrenaline junkies in the fan base, but it delivered major thrills in the character department - including Andrea's long-awaited reunion with the group. " ‐ Zap2it.com

Posted Jul 29, 2015
87% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 6 "So far... the prison and Woodbury have remained separate but creatively equal storylines. Tonight is the beginning of those worlds colliding, and raises anticipation even more for the final two episodes of the season's first half. " ‐ Zap2it.com
Posted Jul 29, 2015
64% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 14 "The effectiveness of "Prey" - arguably one of the most tense hours of The Walking Dead to date - probably depends on how invested you are in Andrea's fate. " ‐ Zap2it.com

Posted Jul 29, 2015
86% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 4 "Even if you didn't like Lori, The Walking Dead was daring you not to choke up in her final moments on the show. The circumstances of her death were as harrowing and horrifying as anything ever seen on series television. " ‐ Zap2it.com
Posted Jul 29, 2015
50% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 16 "There was more than enough blood-splattered action to satisfy thrill seekers, but also enough substance for those looking for more than a live action video game. That's the spirit The Walking Dead needs to retain. " ‐ Zap2it.com
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Posted Jul 28, 2015
100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 1 ""Seed" didn't betray the established tone or style -- this is still the gritty, quiet, mournful, cinematic series we've come to know over 19 episodes -- but it ramped up the action to a level beyond even last season's eventful finale. " ‐ Zap2it.com
Posted Jul 27, 2015
16% The Gallows (2015) "The Gallows isn't without a certain amount of atmosphere, it simply feels borrowed wholesale. That would matter less with a better script, but the four main characters are paper-thin even by genre norms. " ‐ Variety
Posted Jul 9, 2015
