Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
45% The Lords of Salem (2013) "Having the adorable Dee Wallace teamed with Judy Geeson and Patricia Quinn as the revived coven of witches was great. If the film had been about them, the film might have been good. " ‐
Posted Apr 20, 2013
9/10 64% Antiviral (2013) "Originality is a rare commodity in art, so when something fresh and unexpected comes my way, it's cause for celebration. Brandon Cronenberg's Antiviral is cause for celebration. " ‐
Posted Apr 20, 2013
62% Evil Dead (2013) "Evil Deadis a good old-fashioned gorefest that maintains a sense of fun, tension, and the all important "ew" factor. " ‐
Posted Apr 4, 2013
61% John Dies at the End (2013) "John Dies at the End should carry a drug label warning: caution consumption of this film may induce hallucinations, impair your ability to see the world as you once did, and cause outbursts of uncontrollable laughter. " ‐
Posted Feb 15, 2013
14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) "The Moore is less approach announced itself early in an excruciatingly uninventive car chase and then reaffirmed itself with a supreme lack of humor that permeated almost every scene. " ‐
Posted Feb 15, 2013
8/10 65% Mama (2013) "Mama is not a gross out horror film and it's not trying to terrorize you. But it does deliver an elegantly creepy ghost tale that might subtly insinuate itself into your nightmares. " ‐
Posted Jan 19, 2013
5/10 60% The Last Stand (2013) "The Last Stand is a respectable American debut for Kim Je-Woon but I hope he doesn't get sucked into the Hollywood mill. He's far too good a filmmaker to make strictly formula films. " ‐
Posted Jan 19, 2013
88% Django Unchained (2012) "I hope Django Unchained will be appreciated for being a complex film delivered under the guise of simple pop entertainment. " ‐
Posted Dec 31, 2012
64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) "There are so few directors who can convincingly create a fantasy world that I applaud Jackson for continuing to make Middle Earth a travel destination we still love to visit -- even if the journey is becoming less direct. " ‐
Posted Dec 14, 2012
9/10 93% Skyfall (2012) "So Skyfall may not be the film you are expecting from the franchise but it's a film that will prove more satisfying with each viewing. " ‐
Posted Nov 9, 2012
100% Masquerade (2012) "Director Choo Chang-min delivers a familiar tale with elegant skill and assurance. He proves that if you have a good story, there's no need to gild the lily. " ‐
Posted Oct 20, 2012
5/10 61% Tai Chi Zero (2012) "And although disappointed by this first part of the trilogy, there was enough to hold my interest to make me at least willing to give part 2 a chance. " ‐
Posted Oct 19, 2012
82% Seven Psychopaths (2012) "I would pay to see this film again if only to hear Walken utter that pivotal "no" at the end of the film. " ‐
Posted Oct 15, 2012
14% Grave Encounters 2 (2012) "Grave Encounters 2 disappoints because it cops out to so many current horror clich├ęs and can't seem to come up with anything fresh or original. " ‐
Posted Oct 13, 2012
18% Smiley (2012) "It's nice to see that Gallagher may be trying to tap into something that will talk specifically to his generation but at the same time he's not willing to cop out to all the current horror trends in making his film. " ‐
Posted Oct 13, 2012
62% Sinister (2012) "Sinister does falter but it does so early on and finishes strong so that you leave the theater with the best bits fresh in your mind and the disappointing ones starting to fade. " ‐
Posted Oct 12, 2012
100% Flamenco, Flamenco "For Flamenco, Flamenco he kicks up the style and visual luster to deliver a film that is so vivid that it stands out in bold relief in ways digital 3D can never compete. " ‐
Posted Oct 5, 2012
87% Frankenweenie (2012) "Frankenweenie is like catnip for old school horror fans, we get a whiff of homage and pick up the scent of all the horror references and we go crazy with delight. " ‐
Posted Oct 5, 2012
79% Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (2012) "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai is another solid rather than flamboyant film from Japan's master of extreme Takashi Miike. " ‐
Posted Sep 2, 2012
40% The Possession (2012) "Bornedal can't find anything to make his story unique. It could have been the dybbuk box but whatever potential for originality lay in that detail has been exorcised out. " ‐
Posted Sep 2, 2012
97% Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry (2012) "His willingness to speak out despite severe consequences is inspiring, and his recent silence speaks almost as loudly as his work in calling attention to China's repressive tactics. " ‐
Posted Aug 10, 2012
30% Total Recall (2012) "I would suggest that Original Films change their name to Deja Vu Productions. " ‐
Posted Aug 4, 2012
80% Pink Flamingos (1972) "But what made Waters unique was the joyous quality of his work, the wicked delight he took in trashy obscenity. " ‐
Posted Jul 28, 2012
87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "In The Dark Knight Rises, one character talks about revenge and a slow knife that is patient for satisfaction. That describes Nolan as well. " ‐
Posted Jul 19, 2012
86% Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) "Trying to describe Beasts of the Southern Wild seems fruitless, like trying to describe the quality of moonlight -- suffice it to say that it's lovely to behold and somehow magical. " ‐
Posted Jul 17, 2012
67% Ted (2012) "Ted is raunchy and funny as you might expect but it's also surprisingly sweet natured. Quite a fun and satisfying first feature from MacFarlane. " ‐
Posted Jul 3, 2012
6/10 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) "The Amazing Spider-Man reminds me a lot of Let Me In (the American remake of the exquisite Swedish vampire film Let the Right One In) -- neither one's a bad movie yet both are rather unnecessary. " ‐
Posted Jul 3, 2012
78% Brave (2012) "Macdonald is a delight to listen to. She is completely engaging and creates a character that's passionate, determined, and smart but also occasionally selfish and short-sighted. " ‐
Posted Jun 23, 2012
5/10 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) "The result is a film that feels more like the ridiculous Will Smith Wild Wild West and less like Bekmambetov's clever Night Watch. " ‐
Posted Jun 21, 2012
73% Prometheus (2012) "In a nutshell, the best thing about Prometheus can be summed up in two words: Michael Fassbender. " ‐
Posted Jun 9, 2012
63% Lymelife (2008) "Lymelife captures the look and feel of a very specific era in American life. " ‐
Posted May 14, 2012
37% Dark Shadows (2012) "There really isn't acting to speak of because there is no attempt at character development, just character design. Characters only exist as gags, and cheap gags at that. " ‐
Posted May 12, 2012
75% Sound of My Voice (2012) "Sound of My Voice is a subtle, low key but smart and provocative work. I am looking forward to what Marling comes up with next since her films always leave you craving more. " ‐
Posted May 9, 2012
92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) "Whedon's The Avengers does what the best films of this genre do: create a fantasy world that you accept as totally real. And then provides a kick-ass good time as well. " ‐
Posted May 5, 2012
92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) "What follows is what could be described as a clever and wildly fun deconstruction and reassembly of the standard Hollywood horror flick. " ‐
Posted Apr 16, 2012
No Score Yet Nameless Gangster (2012) "Nameless Gangster does what a number of recent Korean films manage to do so well, mix genre elements with serious social and political realities. This mix makes the films richer in their themes and emotional impact. " ‐
Posted Apr 6, 2012
10/10 85% The Raid: Redemption (2012) "The Raid: Redemption is crack cocaine for action junkies like myself. It delivers an intense euphoric high that just makes you want to immediately go out and experience it again. " ‐
Posted Mar 31, 2012
72% Let the Bullets Fly (2012) "The real pleasure is seeing Chow and Jiang square off. Chow mugs for the camera with the same finesse as he handles guns in Woo's films. " ‐
Posted Mar 9, 2012
5/10 24% Act of Valor (2012) "So is it great filmmaking? No. Is it effectively and even beautifully shot action with an eye for authentic detail? Yes. " ‐
Posted Feb 25, 2012
43% The Theatre Bizarre (2012) "The Theatre Bizarre is a delicious horror buffet with some gore-geous treats and gruesome confections. " ‐
Posted Feb 21, 2012
95% The Secret World of Arrietty (2012) "There may not be a frenzy of action and fast cuts but each scene has meticulous details about how the borrowers live, how they make use of the things in their environment to survive. " ‐
Posted Feb 21, 2012
72% The Dead (2011) "The Dead is not the great zombie film I was hoping for but it does deliver a more grown-up horror film that eschews gimmicky shakycam and CGI to try and tell a real story, and for that I am appreciative. " ‐
Posted Jan 21, 2012
93% Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011) "It's a great mix that feeds an action junkie's need for death defying stunts but reminds us how dangerous it all really is so that we remain engaged in the tension of the scene. " ‐
Posted Dec 24, 2011
80% Young Adult (2011) "Cody once again reveals herself as a talented writer with a flair for sharp humor and a keen sense of originality. " ‐
Posted Dec 16, 2011
82% The Way (2011) "The film does make a nice travelogue as Tom walks The Way and takes in the scenery. It's not a badly made film but it does aim for very low hanging sentimental fruit. " ‐
Posted Dec 16, 2011
5/10 83% My Week with Marilyn (2011) "But where the film does succeed is in giving us an insight into what has always been a baffling film. The Prince and the Showgirl seemed as odd an onscreen pairing as it was off screen. " ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2011
73% Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (2011) "A cartoonist who created a graphic novel about Gainsbourg's life and who has now adapted it to the screen. The result is a film that's as playful as its subject matter although not nearly as provocative or complex. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2011
71% OKA! (2011) "Despite some missteps and awkwardness, Oka! proves compelling and engaging. Currier captures the beauty of the African landscape, and she takes the time to document the Bayaka culture with care and compassion. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2011
24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) "It's not even fun bad like the trashy Vampire's Kiss. It's just bland, slow, and boring to those of us not on Team Edward or Team Jacob. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2011
68% A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (2011) "This latest installment in the pot comedy franchise is not as good as White Castle but still provides enough laughs and raunchiness to keep fans happy. " ‐
Posted Nov 4, 2011
75% Blackthorn (2011) "With Blackthorn, director Mateo Gil and writer Miguel Barros deliver a solid western that's as simple, straightforward, and unadorned as its title character. " ‐
