1/4 74% Around the World in 80 Days (1956) "Michael Anderson's direction couldn't be more unimaginative and flat. A movie like this should be swimming in creative whimsy, and a sense of wonder. There's nothing of that sort here. " ‐ Film Geek Central

3.5/4 63% Byzantium (2013) "It has a great mythical feel and is loaded with beautiful, haunting imagery. If you like "good" vampire movies, then you won't want to miss this " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jul 8, 2013
3.5/4 73% Despicable Me 2 (2013) "I laughed harder and more often than in any movie I have seen so far this year! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jul 8, 2013
2.5 31% The Lone Ranger (2013) "It begins and ends with a bang. Too bad the fuse fizzled out somewhere in the middle.This could have been the best film of the summer with some simple tinkering. But as it stands, it's just an okay movie with some spectacular action. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jul 5, 2013
3.5/4 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "If you are a Joss Whedon fan, you won't want to miss this! If you're a Shakespeare fan, you won't want to miss this! If you like good movies, you won't want to miss this! In other words, you won't want to miss this! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 21, 2013
2.5/4 67% World War Z (2013) "The movie doesn't work because it feels like you're watching a really good R-rated film "edited for television". " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 21, 2013
3/4 78% Monsters University (2013) "If you just want to get away from all of life's problems, MONSTERS UNIVERSITY is a pleasant, mild, temporary distraction. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 21, 2013
2/4 60% The Bling Ring (2013) "It's about as insightful as Paris Hilton's underwear. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 21, 2013
3/4 73% Augustine (2013) "The stand out is French Pop star Soko as the title character, who gives an outstanding Oscar worthy performance! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 20, 2013
3/4 84% They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) "It's depressing as hell, so it's not a movie I would watch repeatedly, but I'm sure glad I saw it. This is an important film about a time in America's history that wasn't so glamorous. You won't forget it. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 17, 2013
2.5/4 55% Man of Steel (2013) "From an action stand point, MAN OF STEEL delivers. But, I didn't connect with it on an emotional level, which would be fine if this was something like G.I. JOE... but this is SUPERMAN. There should be more to it than just a couple of swell battle scenes. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 14, 2013
3/4 83% This Is the End (2013) "Just when I thought I was getting tired of this comedy group, they surprise me with this refreshing, dark, gross, raunchy, brave, bold satire that made me laugh hard and often. It's a little rough around the edges, but the laughs are definitely there. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 13, 2013
4/4 98% Before Midnight (2013) "Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy shine in what has to be the most genuine, brutally honest, and romantic tale of love in all of film history. Linklater has made a crowning achievement! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 7, 2013
3.5/4 69% Wish You Were Here (2013) "It's an engrossing, dramatic mystery that's filled with terrific performances and raw filmmaking. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 7, 2013
1/4 35% The Internship (2013) "Kind of like when Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor tried to recapture the magic of SILVER STREAK and came out with ANOTHER YOU. THE INTERNSHIP is that kind of a failure. Avoid at all costs! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 7, 2013
3.5/4 65% The Great Ziegfeld (1936) "It's a lavishly epic biopic, full of wonderful performances and breathtaking musical numbers. It definitely deserved its Oscar! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 5, 2013
3/4 100% Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai) (1956) "I can think of a several samurai films that I prefer to this, but it's still a solid film. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 4, 2013
2/4 74% Micmacs (Micmacs à tire-larigot) (2010) "It's superbly directed but the story just isn't involving and the characters are empty shells. Knowing how awesome this director can be, MICMACS was a major letdown. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Jun 2, 2013
3/4 90% Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay (2013) "It's not the tightest Documentary I've ever seen, but it offers a rare look into the life of that charismatic, mysterious character that is Ricky Jay. If you're a fan of magic, card tricks, or Jay.... definitely check it out. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 31, 2013
2/4 11% After Earth (2013) "It had a great premise, solid special effects and decent direction, but the film's potential is derailed by some truly atrocious acting, especially from Jaden Smith. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 31, 2013
2.5/4 49% Now You See Me (2013) "So, we have a fun cast and a neat premise. But about halfway through the movie, I found myself wondering WHY everything was happening. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 31, 2013
3/4 69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) "It's probably an oxymoron giving these movies bad reviews at this point in the game. It's a fun, stupid movie that wil have audiences hootin and hollerin. Good times . " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 24, 2013
1/4 20% The Hangover Part III (2013) "This makes HANGOVER 2 look like HANGOVER 1. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 24, 2013
2/4 64% Epic (2013) "Why does Hollywood always feel the need to pander to kids by throwing in annoying comic characters and out of place humor in a story that doesn't need it? " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 24, 2013
3/4 82% The Painting (2013) "It's a wonderful, imaginative, one-of-kind experience. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 24, 2013
3/4 83% The Ten Commandments (1923) "This is light years better than the Heston version. The effects hold up better (parting of the read sea is awesome!), the acting is better and it's about an hour shorter. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 19, 2013
2/4 83% How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) "Despite some good work from Bacall and Monroe, this comedy ends up feeling flat. How many people want to watch a movie with a bunch of selfish women who want to find a rich husband so they don't ever have to work again? Yeah, I didn't think so. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 19, 2013
3.5/4 86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "I'm sure this movie will upset a few fanboys here and there, but I thought this was a terrific, crowd pleaser of a film. Loaded with action and humor, this is summer blockbuster escapism at it's best. Better than the first! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 16, 2013
3/4 77% Fast Five (2011) "The last 2 entries were stupid too, but at least this one was well directed and features some of the most impressive stunt work I've seen in years. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 14, 2013
3/4 86% Big Fan (2009) "Despite the rough-around-the-edges direction, this was a compelling character study, anchored by an astonishing performance by Patton Oswalt. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 10, 2013
1.5/4 73% Before Night Falls (2001) "This could have been a compelling movie about a wonderful writer, but instead it's a tedious, pointless mess. After spending over 2 hours with Arenas, I still knew nothing about him. Javier Bardem's great performance seemed to be a complete waste. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 10, 2013
2/4 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) "It all seems so forced, it's as if Baz was trying really hard to emulate his own style. But he seemed to forget that he IS Baz so he doesn't need to try at all. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 9, 2013
3/4 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "If you keep your expectations realistic, IRON MAN 3 will not disappoint. It's a great popcorn movie and a perfect way to start off the summer movie season! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 2, 2013
2.5/4 80% Marvin's Room (1996) "Great work from Dicaprio, De Niro, and especially Streep certainly make the film watchable, but it still can't save it from feeling like a TV movie of the week. If you're a fan of melodrama... and over 60, then you'll find much to like. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted May 2, 2013
3.5/4 78% Fatal Attraction (1987) "Solid direction, ,thrilling set pieces, and an iconic performance from Glenn Close. It's a sleazy movie, but an extremely watchable one. The entertainment value for this one is very high. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 30, 2013
3/4 44% Casanova (2005) "A fun, lighthearted, energetic (if insignificant) romp that features fine work from Ledger, Platt and Irons. I was grinning for most of the running time. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 28, 2013
4/4 92% The Kid Stays in the Picture (2002) "It offers a fascinating peek into the (not always glamorous) life of a Hollywood big shot. Full of insight, meaty tidbits, and not without humor, this documentary is one of the best. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 27, 2013
3/4 No Score Yet The Gaucho (1927) "It may get too bogged down with religious themes during the second half, but that doesn't keep it from being a likable, rousing adventure, featuring a fantastic performance from Fairbanks. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 26, 2013
3/4 94% Re-Animator (1985) "I definitely see its appeal and influence. It's tasteless, shameless, and nasty. And I mean that in the most positive way. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 26, 2013
3.5/4 49% Pain & Gain (2013) "PAIN & GAIN is a big middle finger to all the Michael Bay haters out there. It's crass, crude, vulgar, raunchy, gross, gratuitous, and I loved every minute of it! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 25, 2013
3/4 98% Mud (2013) "It features another fine performance by McConaughey, a compelling coming-of-age story, and sturdy filmmaking. It's definitely a movie that will stick with you long afterwards, and you can't really ask for more than that from a movie these days. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 25, 2013
1.5/4 82% Mulholland Drive (2001) "It's a big mess! But not in a controlled sense like Lynch's other films. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 24, 2013

Posted Apr 24, 2013
4/4 96% The Red Shoes (1948) "It's marvelously acted, superbly written, and features outstanding choreography , unforgettable characters and hauntingly beautiful cinematography. It's a cinematic treat for movie lovers! Bon appetit! " ‐ Film Geek Central

Posted Apr 19, 2013
3.5/4 88% The Mark of Zorro (1920) " It's exciting, thrilling, romantic, and thoroughly entertaining.. And it's all anchored by a rousing performance from Douglas Fairbanks. This is what going to the movies should be about: Pure escapism! " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 18, 2013
3.5/4 53% Oblivion (2013) "It's a smart blockbuster that may have a hard time finding a large audience, but those that discover it will love it. Especially nerds. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 18, 2013
3/4 No Score Yet The Reluctant Dragon (1941) "This isn't really so much a movie as it is just an excuse to show the movie-going audience some of what goes into making an animated film. And you know what? That's absolutely fine by me. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 18, 2013
2/4 73% Kiss Me, Stupid (1964) "Being a HUGE Wilder fan, I can honestly say that this was a HUGE disappointment. I'd rather watch this than say, BIG MOMMA'S HOUSE 2, but I expected something much better from a director as talented as Wilder. " ‐ Film Geek Central
Posted Apr 16, 2013
2.5/4 59% Somewhere in Time (1980) "I understand why this movie has a respectable cult following. I get the appeal. I only wish the movie would have followed through with its promising premise all the way. I didn't dislike it, but was a little letdown. " ‐ Film Geek Central

2.5.4 46% The Babe (1992) "John Goodman's performance deserves to be seen. I just wish I could say that for the rest of the movie. " ‐ Film Geek Central
