33% The Bronze (2016) "Punishingly bad. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jan 23, 2015
52% The Interview (2014) "If you can make it through the first fifteen minutes you'll be rewarded with a movie that's very funny, emotionally deep and has more, perhaps, to say about American interventionism than it does about the real Kim Jong Un. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jan 9, 2015
98% The Babadook (2014) "It's a movie that uses dread and suspense, not cheap jump scares. It's also a movie that unsettles with deep psychological unpleasantness. And it's got a pretty killer title, as well. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jan 3, 2015
99% Selma (2015) "I walked out of SELMA believing in this country, even amidst all the horror and tragedy we've been experiencing, because SELMA helped me remember that sometimes we're at our best in the face of injustice like this. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 23, 2014
72% American Sniper (2015) "Legendary filmmaker Clint Eastwood has achieved another stunning cinematic milestone: he has made not one but two of the absolute worst movies of the year. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 9, 2014
27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) "This is big screen filmmaking at its most traditional, a pageant of sight and sound that makes the trip to the theater completely worth it. Pity about the movie, though. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 5, 2014
62% Felt (2015) "It is certain that Felt is a beautiful film from one of the most exciting new directors working today, anchored by an astonishing performance by an artist without any previous acting experience. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 21, 2014
90% The Imitation Game (2014) "Besides being an offensive disservice to the sadly not singular tragedy of Alan Turing, how is The Imitation Game? Well, it has good performances. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 17, 2014
100% Tales Of The Grim Sleeper (2014) "Manages to evoke both outrage and sympathy - outrage at the incredibly unprofessional LAPD and sympathy with the people who live so far below the lines the authorities and media didn't even bother letting anybody know they're being picked off, one by one. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 14, 2014
75% Starry Eyes (2014) "Not a slow burn so much as a strong build up, and once STARRY EYES gets where it's going the film becomes explosively violent and shocking. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 14, 2014
88% Foxcatcher (2014) "Two great performances and one big fake nose anchor this chilly tale of murder. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 14, 2014
89% A Most Violent Year (2015) "There's not much blood in the veins of A Most Violent Year - and even less on screen. This is one deeply mistitled movie. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 13, 2014

Posted Oct 31, 2014
71% Interstellar (2014) "It's a movie designed for people who watched the bedroom sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey and wished there was more exposition about who built the room, how, why and what thread count was on that bed. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 27, 2014
91% Birdman (2014) "The single take gimmick is the heart of what's wrong with Birdman - it's cool, it's catchy, it's well done, it's screamingly obvious and eventually pointless. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 17, 2014
29% Annabelle (2014) "The most shocking thing about cheap-looking ANNABELLE, the haunted doll prequel to THE CONJURING, is that a major Hollywood studio is releasing it. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 2, 2014

Posted Aug 8, 2014
22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) "A MadLibs style superhero blockbuster, with each interchangeable beat and set piece placed into a skeletal structure that could support any characters in any story. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 5, 2014
91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) "You'll laugh because the jokes are good, you'll clap because the action is awesome, but you'll get emotional because you truly care about the characters. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 31, 2014
67% Lucy (2014) "It's the stupidest possible movie about being smart, a sort of 2001 for people whose movie-going mantra is 'turn off your brain.' " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 23, 2014
64% The Jeffrey Dahmer Files (2013) "Jeff ends up a movie that's not really about anything. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 11, 2014
90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) "Dawn is an incredible epic of conflict and humanity, a movie that - in the truest Planet of the Apes tradition - tells a story about our society using the figures of apes on horseback. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 9, 2014
No Score Yet A Hard Day's Night - 50th Anniversary (2014) "It doesn't so much begin as explode into existence, that ringing first chord shattering the quiet of the theater as the Beatles run towards the camera.

Posted Jul 8, 2014
86% Willow Creek (2014) "Willow Creek isn't a joke. It's not a satire. It's an actual found footage horror movie that centers on Bigfoot... and it's actually scary. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Posted Jun 20, 2014
84% 22 Jump Street (2014) "By doubling down on the chemistry between Tatum and Hill (and by giving Ice Cube a lot of room to be amazing), 22 Jump Street gets deeper and funnier than the first movie. It is, simply put, absolutely awesome. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jun 12, 2014
91% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) "Edge of Tomorrow is everything you wish summer blockbusters were - strong, charismatic central performances anchoring excellent FX work in the service of a well-constructed and smart story " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

Posted May 22, 2014
63% Million Dollar Arm (2014) "So casually wrong-headed in its storytelling that it personifies the thorny concept of white privilege -o one involved in the movie considered whether this was actually the white guy's story they were telling. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 13, 2014
74% Godzilla (2014) "They spent millions upon millions of dollars to make highly sophisticated computers recreate the look and feel of classic Toho monster brawl action, and it is absolutely glorious. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 10, 2014

Posted Feb 27, 2014
49% RoboCop (2014) "A neutered movie that is constantly battling itself, ROBOCOP 2014 eventually reveals itself to be a hunk of junk, as inert as a robot cop when his plug is pulled. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Feb 10, 2014

Posted Jan 29, 2014
51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) "Walter Mitty isn't so much trying to tell a story or make us think about anything, it's trying to give us the feeling of diaphanous well-being we get from credit card commercials that feature smiling people in exotic locations. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 23, 2013
77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) "Sometimes I think Martin Scorsese's biggest flaw is that he makes creating masterpieces look so damn easy. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
