Posted Oct 9, 2015

Posted Oct 1, 2015
2/5 33% The Green Inferno (2015) a hurry up and wait experience that barely delivers when the intended freak show begins. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 24, 2015
2.5/5 55% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) You won't hate yourself for liking this movie, but it's really nothing more than filler ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 24, 2015
2.5/5 48% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) Sadly, the promise built up the first time around devolves into the typical dystopian vision, including bombed out cities, random zombie hordes, and a government cabal that can't decide whether to save mankind or doom them ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 17, 2015
3.5/5 74% Black Mass (2015) an effective entertainment buoyed by two men who literally make or break it. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 17, 2015
2/5 45% No Escape (2015) If international intrigue was a hate crime, Dowdle and his co-writer brother Drew would be guilty as charged. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 17, 2015
1.5/5 19% The Perfect Guy (2015) wouldn't be out of place among the flurry of post-Fatal Attraction knock-offs that filled video stores throughout the '80s and '90s ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 16, 2015
2.5/5 64% The Visit (2015) a mountain of mediocrity ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 10, 2015
1.5/5 15% The Transporter Refueled (2015) If all you wanted was a movie that fetishizes the tools of the Transporter's trade - read: vehicles and violence - then you'll have no problem with this revival ‐ Film Racket
Posted Sep 3, 2015
1.5/5 8% Hitman: Agent 47 (2015) You don't even have to be familiar with the first movie made from the Hitman title (or even remember that there was one) to judge this reboot ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 20, 2015
1/5 13% Sinister 2 (2015) a lame origin story, a badly executed family-in-peril film, and an equally weak supernatural mystery ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 20, 2015
4.5/5 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) Straight Outta Compton is not just one of the best movies about the music business ever made, but it's the drama about racism that a modern audience needs now more than ever. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 13, 2015
3.5/5 93% The Gift (2015) The Gift may not be a true revelation, but it is an effective and workmanlike thriller ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2/5 64% Ricki And The Flash (2015) does little except hit a series of sour notes. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2.5/5 9% Fantastic Four (2015) Audiences will be watching the clock, waiting for something to happen ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 6, 2015
4/5 99% Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015) It uses its own unique look, and the occasional lapse into the language of the action adventure, to turns frowns upside down ‐ Film Racket
Posted Aug 4, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) Previous installments may have done a solid job of bringing Ethan Hunt's inner turmoil to the fore, but Rogue Nation really nails it ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 30, 2015
2.5/5 61% Southpaw (2015) With a weaker central performance, the movie would be an even bigger mess. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) When Mr. Holmes concentrates on the character and gives its actor a platform to perform from, it's electrifying. When it doesn't it's dull. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 16, 2015
4.5/5 85% Trainwreck (2015) As an introduction to Schumer and her big screen potential, as well as an example of comedy in 2015, it's a winner. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 16, 2015
1.5/5 16% The Gallows (2015) If you think horror should be something more than a subpar state fair sideshow, you'll want off this ridiculous ride long before it ends. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 9, 2015
3/5 56% Minions (2015) likeable, but limited ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jul 9, 2015
2/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) Sure, they look good in the buff, but their problems are transparent and the solutions as pat as Channing Tatum's buns are tight. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 30, 2015
2/5 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) With an intriguing idea and an amiable cast, Terminator: Genesys should have been better ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 30, 2015
3.5/5 77% Big Game (2015) While it's mostly silly, Big Game finds a way to end up satisfying. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 25, 2015
3.5/5 46% Ted 2 (2015) Not as original as the first film, but it's more daring and inventive. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 25, 2015
3.5/5 89% Dope (2015) balances the basics of a clever, coming of age comedy with the equally important elements of a (minor) action film ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 19, 2015
3.5/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) When its focus is on dino-centric destruction, Jurassic World is wonderful. When it doesn't, it's a dump -- an expositional dump, to be precise. ‐ PopMatters
Posted Jun 12, 2015
3/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) A film full of attempts. When it succeeds, we smile. When it doesn't, we sense a revision gone wrong, or at the very least, unoriginal. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 11, 2015
4.5/5 91% Love & Mercy (2015) There is a timeless quality to the music Brian Wilson made that continues to touch something deep inside us. Love and Mercy manages to find a similar path, thanks to its insights and invention. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 4, 2015
4/5 94% Spy (2015) for the most part, Spy is solid ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 4, 2015
3.5/5 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) a solid stand-alone experience ‐ Film Racket
Posted Jun 4, 2015
1.5/5 19% Aloha (2015) barely tolerable... cinematic navel gazing ‐ Film Racket
Posted May 28, 2015
2/5 31% Poltergeist (2015) We want a potent supernatural light show, with undead bodies breaking through the foundation to reclaim their gravesites. Poltergeist 2015 doesn't get this. Instead, it repeats the past, and proves a pale comparison. ‐ Film Racket
Posted May 22, 2015
3.5/5 50% Tomorrowland (2015) When it works, it's a true wonder. When it doesn't, it barely dodges disappointment. ‐ Film Racket
Posted May 21, 2015
4.5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) 70-year-old George Miller steps before this cinematic cult, shows the skill set he's developed over the last three-plus decades, and then drops the mic. ‐ PopMatters
Posted May 15, 2015
3/5 66% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) repeats the formula, and is far more phony as a result. ‐ Film Racket
Posted May 14, 2015
3.5/5 85% Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) pleasant if predictable ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 30, 2015
4/5 75% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Joss Whedon and his heroes and villains epic offers more this time around -- more characters, more plot points, more action -- and a few reasons for concern. ‐ PopMatters
Posted Apr 29, 2015
2/5 63% The Water Diviner (2015) feels like an affront - and a waste of time ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 23, 2015
3/5 55% The Age of Adaline (2015) a weeper that raises more concerns than true tears ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 23, 2015
2.5/5 22% Little Boy (2015) hard to hate... but easy to dismiss as well. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 23, 2015
1/5 5% Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015) Nothing here is remotely salvageable ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 17, 2015
2.5/5 62% Unfriended (2015) One of the rare occasions where an aesthetic decision drives the experience... It lacks in the legitimate fear department, however. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 16, 2015
2.5/5 26% Child 44 (2015) an exercise in empty histrionics. ‐ Film Racket
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3.5/5 30% Lost River (2015) When it premiered at Cannes last year, Gosling's urban fairytale was greeted with jeers. It should have been met with cheers. ‐ PopMatters
Posted Apr 10, 2015
4/5 93% Ex Machina (2015) turns a standard story into something quite special ‐ Film Racket
