24% We'll Never Have Paris (2015) "Despite some real pedigree behind the making of "We'll Never Have Paris", the movie doesn't succeed on a number of levels. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 22, 2015
98% Paddington (2015) ""Fun for the whole family" is an overused cliche when it comes to movies. But in the case of "Paddington", there is no better description. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 19, 2015
72% American Sniper (2015) "After "Trouble with the Curve", director Clint Eastwood had nowhere to go but up. He has done that with "American Sniper", but I'm not convinced it belongs with the other Oscar candidates. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 19, 2015
88% Still Alice (2015) "Julianne Moore, as Dr. Alice Howland, evokes the heartbreaking reality of this dreaded condition. Yet through it all, she is "still" Alice, and that's why Moore is a lock for the Academy Award. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 16, 2015
28% The Wedding Ringer (2015) "Hart is a bundle of energy --- so is Gad, for that matter --- and they bring that to their roles with relish. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 15, 2015
99% Selma (2015) ""Selma" is a phenomenally stirring production that should be seen by everyone who believes in racial equality. And even more so by anyone who does not. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 13, 2015
52% Unbroken (2014) ""Unbroken" should be seen on the big screen if only to witness the jousting in the sky, orchestrated by 11-time Oscar nominee for cinematography, Roger Deakins. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Jan 1, 2015
46% The Gambler (2014) "The script is more than a bit unrealistic, and annoyingly insulting to the audience's intelligence. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 31, 2014
71% Into the Woods (2014) "Marshall struck gold in 2002 with his Oscar-nominated smash "Chicago", but he followed that up with the disastrous "Nine" in 2009. Now, with a superb cast spearheaded by the ethereal Ms. Streep, Marshall has another hit. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 29, 2014
72% Big Eyes (2014) "The strange saga of the Keane paintings is merely a blip in the history books, but Tim Burton proves that sometimes its those little things that amaze us the most. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 27, 2014
98% Mr. Turner (2014) "To hold audience interest for 150 minutes with virtually no action sequences speaks volumes. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 27, 2014
98% The Babadook (2014) ""The Babadook" is a well constructed character study, but may fail to creep out some jaded horror lovers. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 20, 2014
60% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Fight scenes that go on --- and on --- and on...Talk about battle fatigue. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 17, 2014
27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "Some movies should not be trifled with --- "The Ten Commandments" is one of them. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 12, 2014
86% Top Five (2014) "If seeing Cedric the Entertainer naked in a threesome is amusing, then this is your kind of movie. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 12, 2014
90% The Imitation Game (2014) "You wouldn't think a movie about an English mathematical genius could be so absolutely riveting, but that is the subject matter of "The Imitation Game", a sure bet for a Best Picture nomination. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Dec 12, 2014
90% Wild (2014) "It's an entertaining picture with enough humor to allay the seriousness without diminishing its importance. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Posted Nov 14, 2014
29% Dumb and Dumber To (2014) "The Farrelly Brothers should thank their lucky stars that Nicolas Cage's incredibly bad "Left Behind" has already been released. Otherwise "Dumb and Dumber To" would be the leading candidate for worst movie of the year. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 14, 2014

Posted Nov 10, 2014
67% Laggies (2014) "The movie is simplistic, predictable and trite. It's pure fluff. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 7, 2014
71% Interstellar (2014) "There are genuinely spectacular and tension-filled scenes, none more so than when the crew is confronted by massive waves. We have come to expect jaw-dropping effects like this from Nolan. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Nov 5, 2014

Posted Oct 17, 2014
78% St. Vincent (2014) "I love a movie with authentic laughs. And when that movie puts a lump in my throat, it's even better. "St. Vincent" is such a film. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Posted Oct 10, 2014

Posted Oct 3, 2014
2% Left Behind (2014) "The movie is astoundingly awful on so many levels. I suspect that Bible thumpers and end-of-the-world fanatics will be "en-raptured" by its doom-and-gloom message, but for the rest of the movie-going public, it is an unintentionally laughable experience. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Oct 2, 2014

Posted Sep 20, 2014
89% The Drop (2014) "Hardy delivers a truly riveting performance as the apparent nice guy in the hood. How can you not admire someone who takes an injured dog home? " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Sep 11, 2014
60% The Equalizer (2014) "Denzel's McCall, with his easy-going style and likeable personality that can instantly explode into controlled fury, is what makes this movie so compelling. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Sep 11, 2014
87% The Skeleton Twins (2014) "Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig have taken career risks with "The Skeleton Twins". And we are fortunate that they did. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Sep 10, 2014
30% The Last Of Robin Hood (2014) "Kline doesn't overplay the part, and his performance is ultimately respectful to Flynn's memory. " ‐ Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Posted Sep 5, 2014
