Posted Sep 23, 2015
63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) ""Sleeping With Other People" is one of the best and funniest recent attempts to update the rom-com - but the container feels too antiquated for the world it captures, which is so furiously alive. " ‐ Salon.com

85% Trainwreck (2015) ""Trainwreck" is not very good, but Schumer is frequently amazing in it. Officially, her fans will not be disappointed; not far below the surface, it's a bummer. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted May 28, 2015
48% San Andreas (2015) "Considered as pure spectacle, "San Andreas" is gripping and effective, as well as a somewhat interesting form of counter-narrative: A vision of near-term apocalypse that has nothing to do with climate change, monsters or alien invaders. " ‐ Salon.com
Posted May 28, 2015
86% Heaven Knows What (2015) "I'm glad I saw this film; considered on its own merits, in terms of what I understand as its artistic goals, it's a wrenching and finely wrought piece of work. " ‐ Salon.com

Posted Apr 18, 2015
69% The Dead Lands (2015) "Once you get past an awkward and artificial beginning and roll with the movie's crazy rhythm, The Dead Lands is also a blast, and one that delivers an unexpected emotional wallop along with gore, thrills and spectacular scenery. " ‐ Salon.com
