Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
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.
Posted Dec 23, 2013
75% Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) "I liked Anchorman 2. And maybe in a couple of viewings I can shake off the disappointment that, while pretty good, this is not even close to being as good as the first film. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 17, 2013
93% American Hustle (2013) "American Hustle is a relative of Goodfellas and Boogie Nights, although never quite as transcendently magical as those two films. Which just means it isn't one of the greatest movies ever made, so don't hold that against it. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 16, 2013
88% The Wind Rises (2014) "I wish these beautiful scenes and images were in the service of a story that I enjoyed watching be told. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 10, 2013
74% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) "Congratulations, Millenials - you have your own disappointing Prequel Trilogy. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Dec 9, 2013
41% Oldboy (2013) "Let's put it this way: five years from now when you're talking about Oldboy, nobody's going to say 'Which one?' " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 26, 2013
39% Delivery Man (2013) "A lot like the sperm that sets its plot in motion: it's mostly white, moves with a viscous sluggishness and is made up largely of glucose. You also would rather not get it in your eyes. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 21, 2013
89% Frozen (2013) "It straddles the classic and the current in a way that will delight Disney geeks of all stripes, and its wonderfully girl-powered story melted the heart of even a Disney cynic like me. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 18, 2013
75% Lone Survivor (2014) "Berg shoots their every wound - and they suffer dozens, because while it takes one or two bullets to kill an Afghani it takes ten just to slow an American down - with a loving attention that calls to mind Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 13, 2013
89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) "CATCHING FIRE bests THE HUNGER GAMES in every way. If the trend continues this series will be a political science fiction epic that will endure for generations. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 12, 2013
66% Thor: The Dark World (2013) "Thor: The Dark World is a movie that understands why we like these characters, how they work and how to best bounce them off each other. I'll forgive the overclocked pacing because the movie swept me so perfectly into a big, weird world. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Nov 2, 2013
49% Escape Plan (2013) "Escape Plan is entertaining enough to keep it from being 'bad,' but there's so little different or interesting or truly engaging that it's not very good either. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 18, 2013
94% All Is Lost (2013) "The sort of unique, uncompromising movie that immediately undercuts the 'They don't make em like they used to' complaints. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 18, 2013
96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) "Steve McQueen's latest masterpiece is a shattering horror film. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 16, 2013
73% Zero Charisma (2013) "Zero Charisma is the nerd movie I've been hoping to see for years. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 10, 2013
36% Ghost Team One (2013) "An unyielding exercise in extreme pain. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 10, 2013
93% Captain Phillips (2013) "No other film I have seen this year has the sort of visceral gut-wrenching terror and deep, complex humanity that Greengrass brings to Captain Phillips. In a career littered with highlights, this is one of his best. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 9, 2013
96% Gravity (2013) "90 minutes of sheer excitement and terror, a dizzyingly participatory experience. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Oct 3, 2013
81% Prisoners (2013) "A very good film, with two hours of extraordinary, gripping filmmaking and twenty final minutes of subtle deflation. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 19, 2013
99% The Wizard of Oz (1939) "The most magical movie ever is still magic in 3D IMAX. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 19, 2013
89% Rush (2013) "An extraordinary true story makes for a smart, adult, thrilling movie. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 18, 2013
58% Riddick (2013) "Riddick works. As a mid-range scifi action movie it's fun enough, if it never quite reaches the potential of that first act. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Sep 6, 2013
89% The World's End (2013) "Yes, The World's End is funny and fun, and yes it will make you want to go get blasted at a traditional pub. But, like all the best science fiction, it also has a lot to say about humanity and who we are and how we screw up. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 23, 2013
75% You're Next (2013) "You're Next always keeps itself fun, always keeps itself moving and always gives the audience something to care about. What a weird gimmick: they made a movie that's actually just really good. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 20, 2013
71% I Declare War (2013) "It's a loving, fun, extraordinarily well made celebration of the imagination and worldview of being 12. It's sweet but never sentimental. I loved it. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 20, 2013
27% Jobs (2013) "Jobs ends up being a fairly honest, only mildly bombastic look at the life of a man who was very, very complicated - which is code for 'a complete a-hole.' " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 15, 2013
31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) "Kick-Ass 2 is passable, but is completely missing the spark that made the original work. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Aug 15, 2013

Posted Jul 26, 2013
41% Only God Forgives (2013) "A hypnotic, terrifying plunge into neon hell. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 16, 2013
71% Pacific Rim (2013) "A movie about that is thrillingly, upliftingly about the best of humanity. And it also has giant mechs punching the s**t out of giant monsters. This is what blockbuster movies should be. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 8, 2013
31% The Lone Ranger (2013) "I hate THE LONE RANGER as much as THE LONE RANGER hates The Lone Ranger. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jul 1, 2013
50% White House Down (2013) "White House Down is the new standard-bearer for what summer action fluff should be. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jun 27, 2013
83% This Is the End (2013) "The funniest movie of the year. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jun 12, 2013
55% Man of Steel (2013) "The best superhero action ever put to film " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jun 10, 2013
76% The Kings of Summer (2013) "Kings of Summer is mostly very funny, which makes the bits where it gets serious hit all that much harder. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Jun 6, 2013
69% Fast & Furious 6 (2013) "Justin Lin gives fans of this franchise what they want: greatcharacters being themselves and bouncing around in crazy, over the top action sequences. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 22, 2013
86% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "A totally stupid movie, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS falls apart as it goes, raining debris as it implodes like a building being demolished. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 14, 2013
37% The Purge (2013) "Logic and drama are what get purged here. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted May 7, 2013
79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "This isn't just the best Iron Man movie, it's a recharge to the whole shared universe concept. Marvel can make movies that exist together while still having unique, awesome identities of their own. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 30, 2013
49% Pain & Gain (2013) "Instead of incoherent robot movies he doesn't even like, Michael Bay should have been making pitch black movies with the conscience of a sociopath all this time. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 24, 2013
53% Oblivion (2013) "Like Tron Legacy, Oblivion is a beautiful, tedious, stupid movie that is an actual chore to endure. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 18, 2013
4% Scary Movie 5 (2013) "If AIRPLANE! was Mad Magazine at its absolute best, a real genius work of insanity, SCARY MOVIE V is an issue you don't bother trying to get back after the teacher confiscates it. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 12, 2013
79% 42 (2013) "If you were to order "42" at the ballpark you'd get a corndog. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 11, 2013
93% Jurassic Park (1993) "Have you always wanted to watch Jurassic Park through Ian Malcolm's sunglasses? Then boy, is Jurassic Park 3D for you. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 4, 2013
73% My Amityville Horror (2013) "Not only a unique psychological spin on the entire story, but more importantly a truly heartbreaking examination of a 40 year old man who has spent his life trying to protect a wounded 10 year old boy within him. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Apr 2, 2013
29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) "Incredibly disjointed, lacks any sort of a compelling throughline and, in the end, feels very small. And that's with the entire city of London being destroyed from outer space. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 25, 2013
67% Spring Breakers (2013) "Is Spring Breakers a party movie? Yes, but that party is a raging kegger, and it's happening amidst the ashes of Western civilization. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 15, 2013
36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) "Funny enough fluff, the sort of movie that plays well on cable when you're just kind of lazing on the couch. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 14, 2013
61% Evil Dead (2013) "It isn't that Evil Dead is particularly bad; it's fine. But it's without much of an identity; it's never allowed to become its own movie and is constantly forced to reference or bow to or swerve from the original. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
Posted Mar 10, 2013
69% Stoker (2013) "A movie that feels elegantly transgressive and viscerally exciting. A wonderful, menacing and sexy thriller. " ‐ CHUD
Posted Feb 27, 2013
52% Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) "This is what it looks like when no one cares about a movie. This is a movie as pure product, cinema rendered utterly soulless, with no aspirations beyond getting your money opening weekend. " ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
