B+ 91% 12 O'clock Boys (2014) " It's important to remember that not every day is a joy ride. 12 O'Clock Boys is also a portrait of a family." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 31, 2014
A- 93% No (2013) " No is an open conversation about the very means by which we understand ourselves and our societies, the way that we internalize advertising and news footage. It's a manifestation of national memory." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 1, 2014
A 94% Lore (2013) " Shortland may not leave us with certainty, but in the context of so bloody a conflict fueled by intransigence and misguided idealism, the hope and the beauty of Lore is only strengthened by its embrace of youthful uncertainty." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 1, 2014
A- 95% War Witch (2013) " Rachel Mwanza's performance is extraordinary and shows great depth for such a young actress." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 17, 2013
A 99% Wadjda (2013) " Films like Wadjda do not come around very often." — Film School Rejects
Posted Dec 10, 2013
7.9/10 100% These Birds Walk (2013) " These Birds Walk might be the single most beautiful documentary of the year so far." — Film.com
Posted Nov 1, 2013
8.7/10 76% Concussion (2013) " Passon's portrayal of sexuality is not so much fluid as it is open, a frankly refreshing way of seeing." — Film.com
Posted Oct 7, 2013
B+ 93% Our Children (2013) " A quietly violent film that will both assault and deeply move its audience." — Film School Rejects
Posted Jul 31, 2013
B+ 96% Chasing Ice (2012) Film School Rejects
Posted Jan 22, 2013
B- 90% Lincoln (2012) " This small glimpse at the Lincoln presidency gives them many opportunities to build up a great American hero. All of this is possible only through Daniel Day-Lewis' unparalleled performance." — Film School Rejects
Posted Nov 2, 2012
2.5/4 70% Friends With Benefits (2011) " The problem is that once all of the sex is over we find ourselves watching an inexplicable couple do their utmost to find their way to a pre-written happy ending." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jul 23, 2011
4/4 77% La belle endormie (The Sleeping Beauty) (2011) " This provocateur has moved away from the "New French Extreme" to become the master of her own magical kingdom." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jul 8, 2011
.5/4 35% Larry Crowne (2011) " "Larry Crowne" will give you little more than a strong sense of empathy for the unfortunate cast and crew, shackled to a mind-bogglingly mediocre screenplay." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jul 1, 2011
1.5/4 30% Sanctum (2011) " Even if you don't feel emotionally attached to the characters, or particularly invested in the outcome of this expedition, you totally feel submerged. " — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
4/4 82% Trollhunter (2011) " It is as if we have been transported to a dimension where these monsters are no longer out of place, but rather the little humans are dwarfed and rendered eerily incongruous." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
3.5/4 86% The Wild Hunt (2010) " "The Wild Hunt" is a film so creatively conceived and hauntingly executed it will stick with you long after the first viewing." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
1.5/4 10% Red Riding Hood (2011) " The screenplay is awful, the story is all over the place, and the pacing is way off the mark." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
3.5/4 89% Passione (2011) " "Passione" is a hip city symphony for the 21st century." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
1.5/4 44% Bad Teacher (2011) " "Bad Teacher" is bad, but not necessarily bad for women." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
1.5/4 26% Green Lantern (2011) " It's far from exciting or unique when compared to other recent superhero flicks, and there are some moments that fall embarrassingly flat." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 24, 2011
1.5/4 82% Super 8 (2011) " This movie doesn't make you want to go home and re-watch an old favorite; it makes you wish that's what you had done with your evening in the first place." — SpoutBlog
Posted Jun 9, 2011
.5/4 34% The Hangover Part II (2011) " How is it that a group of screenwriters can sit down and just replicate their earlier film exactly?" — SpoutBlog
Posted May 27, 2011
2.5/4 64% You Won't Miss Me (2010) " Somehow the rawness of this film's subject remains potent throughout, and keeps drawing us in." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 27, 2011
2/4 55% Gnomeo and Juliet (2011) " For the most part, "Gnomeo and Juliet" stays just a bit above that thin line between inspired remake and unfortunate caricature, which is both a relief and a delight." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 27, 2011
3/4 75% Tuesday, After Christmas (2011) " The sparse austerity of every frame and the quietly raw performances are shaped into a beautifully potent series of increasingly dramatic set pieces." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 27, 2011
3/4 50% Lebanon, Pa. (2011) " It's more than a little refreshing to see the issue of teen pregnancy tackled in a fiction film without the need for campy humor or eccentric dialogue." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 7, 2011
2/4 15% Something Borrowed (2011) " There's more to this film than meets the eye, or the critical consensus." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 7, 2011
4/4 95% Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2011) " "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" is not just a visually stunning masterpiece of 3D but also a film that turns the third dimension into an artistic necessity." — SpoutBlog
Posted May 7, 2011
3.5/4 58% Scream 4 (2011) " The satire of this film is not comedy about fear; it's the combination of comedy and fear into a sort of meta-experience that is more than the sum of its parts." — SpoutBlog
Posted Apr 16, 2011
1.5/5 23% Sucker Punch (2011) " A cautionary tale for those trying to write future super-heroines and female action heroes. Take notice ... write something a bit more nuanced and conscious." — SpoutBlog
