Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 52% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) "The feature manages to ascertain a greater sense of personal identity than its predecessor, but the script's a mess and much like Sam Raimi's franchise halting "Spider-Man 3" suffers a severe faulty villain complex. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 19, 2014
1/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) "The road to hell is paved with Nicki Minaj cameos " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 17, 2014
D+ 36% The Quiet Ones (2014) "I guarantee anyone with even post-virginal grounding in this sort of material will find the process trite and unrewarding. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 12, 2014
A 89% Calvary (2014) "There's a raw honesty and aura of torment to "Calvary" that renders the dying moments of Stephen Frears' "Philomena" superfluous by comparison. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 12, 2014
C 41% Divergent (2014) "YA kiddin' me? " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Apr 8, 2014
B 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) "The audience cares for Captain America because he is sweet and sincere, an old-school hero with tangible vulnerabilities beneath his invincible shell. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 30, 2014
B- 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) "It's an amusing sequel with a respectable roster of delightful moments at its disposal, but it's a baggier less infectiously envisioned project than its practically perfect predecessor. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 24, 2014
C- 92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) "It's utter anti-plotting from start to finish, coated in a varnish that underlines Anderson's cine-literacy at the expense of engaging narrative. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 10, 2014
B- 60% Non-Stop (2014) "Amusing, but no "Con-Air " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Mar 5, 2014
A- 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) ""The LEGO Movie" definitely can't claim to be utterly devoid of monetarily driven hooey, but it gets as close to jettisoning Western philosophy as any flick boasting such a title ever could. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Feb 17, 2014
C- 30% The Monuments Men (2014) ""The Monuments Men" has Oscar potential written all over it, until you actually see the damn thing. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Feb 12, 2014
3/5 49% RoboCop (2014) "Worth buying for a dollar " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Feb 10, 2014
D+ 23% That Awkward Moment (2014) "name checks "Jerry Maguire" at one point, but what's actually presented is closer to "Dude, Where's my Rohypnol?". " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Feb 4, 2014
2/5 56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) "This is a hero who first appeared some 30 years ago, and in 2014 he's really beginning to creak. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jan 26, 2014
C+ 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) "Into the scrapheap " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jan 22, 2014
4/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) "It lasts three hours yet never tires, viciously clubbing its audience repeatedly with a mobile mise en scene and thudding soundtrack " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jan 19, 2014
C 75% Lone Survivor (2014) "Where Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" painted the moral complexities of the situation with deft brush strokes, "Lone Survivor" just plasters Crayon over the nursery walls " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jan 3, 2014
B- 14% 47 Ronin (2013) ""47 Ronin" isn't the disgrace some industry insiders and media types are labelling it " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 27, 2013
B+ 75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) "BREAKING NEWS - Burgundy still funny in 2013 " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 21, 2013
B+ 51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) "the movie's soulful introspection proving an intriguing parallel to a life lived almost entirely through fiction. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 18, 2013
D+ 24% Walking With Dinosaurs (2013) "With a handful of popular family oriented blockbusters already on release, I imagine this thing will go extinct fast. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 15, 2013
B+ 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) ""The Desolation of Smaug" is a true spectacle and an absolute pleasure to gaze upon. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 12, 2013
B 92% Philomena (2013) "It's no masterpiece, but the feature captures a natural storytelling flow, handling rather dramatic shifts in tone confidently. It'll probably be your grandmother's new favourite film. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 10, 2013
A 91% Nebraska (2013) "It also allows Payne another chance to exhibit his talents for casting and sustaining creative dynamism with actors, drawing wonderful turns from a bevy of thespians, most notably a feisty yet vulnerable Bruce Dern. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Dec 8, 2013
C- 48% Carrie (2013) "Like its namesake "Carrie" is an unwanted beast, but at least she mounts a visceral and memorable last stand. Peirce's ho-hum retread doesn't even get close. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Nov 30, 2013
B 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) ""Catching Fire" gets off to a slow and moody start, the air filled with ice, rain and stinging despondency. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Nov 24, 2013
B- 81% Don Jon (2013) ""Don Jon" is a clinical and amusing Hollywood comedy, albeit one that's aim possibly outstrips its means. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Nov 13, 2013
A 96% Gravity (2013) ""Gravity" can be enjoyed as a superbly mounted palm-sweater or as a more meditative contemplation on existence, but for maximum gratification I would advise you to embrace it as both. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Nov 11, 2013
C 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) "more knock-off than knock-out. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Nov 2, 2013
C- 60% Ender's Game (2013) "I suspect distributors Summit Entertainment have the next "After Earth" on their hands, as opposed to the "Twilight" replacement they've been struggling to unearth for the last 12-months. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Oct 26, 2013
B 78% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) "There's nothing radical to observe here (aside from the stunning contributions of Farrell and Thompson), but "Saving Mr. Banks" is both credibly realised and well-intentioned. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Oct 21, 2013
B+ 91% Blue Jasmine (2013) "It's incredible to observe a seasoned director now well into his seventies produce such vital output, all powered by a towering turn from the regal Cate Blanchett. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Oct 19, 2013
D- 19% Texas Chainsaw (2013) ""Texas Chainsaw 3D" is a heartless desecration of an icon and an affront to those who take scary movies seriously. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Oct 6, 2013
C- 8% Runner Runner (2013) "The screenplay is hopeless; maybe one of 2013's least convincing. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 24, 2013
D+ 44% The Call (2013) ""The Call" is a sour, dopey flop; unable to deliver anything worthwhile aside from the odd, sparse moment of competence. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 19, 2013
A- 89% Rush (2013) "The 70s period detail doesn't feel contrived or forced and the sound design is incredible. Each thundering challenge shakes the auditorium- as engines whir and vehicles collide - "Rush" pleasuring every sensory capacity in the book. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 16, 2013
A- 49% Pain & Gain (2013) "It's probably too much to hope that this is Michael Bay moving in a permanently fresh direction, but after subjecting myself to years of his over-produced noise, I consider this ballsy gem adequate compensation. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Sep 2, 2013
B- 75% You're Next (2013) "I'm the first to suggest the feature has been given an easy pass by critics, but admittedly the movie does pack at least one terrific shift of gear, channelling the carnage in a different and more intriguing direction. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 30, 2013
C- 67% Elysium (2013) ""Elysium" comes across as positively foolish in spots. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 26, 2013
B- 47% We're The Millers (2013) "You get what you pay for here. There's a prosthetic dick, Jennifer Aniston gives an onscreen lap dance and the screenplay provides an ample degree of mirth. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 24, 2013
C+ 64% 2 Guns (2013) ""2 Guns" has nothing to say concerning the facile and unreliable state of Government, but tellingly it does harbour a pretty kick-ass Mexican stand-off denouement. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 18, 2013
B+ 31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) ""Kick-Ass 2" still entertains fluidly and is eons away from the disgrace some were anticipating earlier this year. In a summer of bummers, this one actually gets it right. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 14, 2013
B 87% Alan Partridge (2014) "Director Declan Lowney never manages to eclipse the character's TV origins visually, but there are plenty of giggles to be had here, many of which support a refreshingly smart voice. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 13, 2013
B+ 41% Only God Forgives (2013) "It's a film of supreme moodiness, lit in dangerous reds and backed by daunting black spaces, with characters defined by action and belief, rather than oneness with any sort of identifiable reality. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 13, 2013
B 84% Much Ado About Nothing (2013) "As self-important Benedick, Alexis Denisof is the scene-stealer, although Whedon favourites Fran Kranz, Nathan Fillion and Clark Gregg also get moments to shine. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 13, 2013
C 31% The Lone Ranger (2013) ""The Lone Ranger" concludes like a pro, but conducts itself like an amateur in nearly all other senses. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 13, 2013
D 23% The Canyons (2013) "Ultimately the movie has the personality of a snow-cone, but more criminally its storytelling prowess and observational relevance are blunter than a toddler's favourite crayon. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 3, 2013
F 7% Grown Ups 2 (2013) "It's a ghastly film; crassly commercial, shamelessly sentimental and short of any proper laughs whatsoever. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Aug 2, 2013
B+ 86% The Conjuring (2013) "A strong reminder that sometimes the old ways are the best. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jul 30, 2013
C+ 65% The Heat (2013) "I ask you this. Is justifying the reuse of hackneyed old storytelling on the basis of gender diversity not sexism in action? " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
Posted Jul 25, 2013
C- 69% The Wolverine (2013) "Let's leave the X-Men as a team from now on. " ‐ eFilmCritic.com
