Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"Let's just cut to the chase: Captain America: The Winter Soldier is awesome." Den of Geek

4/5 92%

Patriots Day (2016)

"When Peter Berg focuses solely on the moments in his films, without letting sentiment or messaging seep onto the screen, he's among the best directors of pulse-pounding, you-are-there suspense working today." Den of Geek

2.5/5 23%

Bad Santa 2 (2016)

"Bad Santa 2 is a film that doesn't provide any real reason for its existence other than to cash in on the cult status of the original brand." Den of Geek

2.5/5 60%

Allied (2016)

"Allied is as if a snazzy new copy machine was supposed to print out a presentation in eye-popping colors and ended up spitting it out in plain old black and white. You can read it but it's dull to look at." Den of Geek

Bleed For This (2016)

"It follows the same pattern of rise, fall, comeback, and redemption that has become so automatic for this particular subgenre that you can almost set your watch by the narrative beats." Den of Geek

3.5/5 91%

Doctor Strange (2016)

"The acting, the visual fireworks and Michael Giacchino's distinctive, Eastern-influenced score all go a long way toward disguising the fact that we are once again watching an origin story, and one that seems even a bit more perfunctory than usual." Den of Geek

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is a disappointment whose title may unwittingly end up serving as the epitaph for a briefly promising franchise." Den of Geek
Posted Oct 19, 2016
4.5/5 98%

The Babadook (2014)

"The Babadook is the best horror movie I've seen in some time, because it works on all those emotional and psychological levels in addition to succeeding as a straight genre outing." Den of Geek

Snowden (2016)

"Snowden could have used more of the JFK-era Stone." Den of Geek

Kicks (2016)

"Director and co-writer Justin Tipping makes a confident and even occasionally audacious debut." Den of Geek

Sully (2016)

"Even with its mistakes, Sully is watchable and occasionally gripping entertainment." Den of Geek

Hands of Stone (2016)

"There are so many secondary characters and narrative strands introduced and forgotten that a scorecard should have been handed out as we sat down." Den of Geek

3.5/5 92%

Southside With You (2016)

"[It's] breezy, warm and romantic, if ultimately somewhat slight. In other words, the complete opposite of the past eight years." Den of Geek

Ben-Hur (2016)

"Timur Bekmambetov has apparently never met a shot that he didn't want to cut down to two seconds or less. " Den of Geek

War Dogs (2016)

"[It's] a well-worn tale that could be best described as Scorsese-lite." Den of Geek

5/5 98%

Hell or High Water (2016)

"It's simply one of the best films of the year." Den of Geek

4/5 84%

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"Star Trek Beyond may not be the perfect Star Trek film, but it is unashamedly, entertainingly and enthusiastically a true one -- and that's more than enough for this Starfleet lifer." Den of Geek

3/5 72%

Ghostbusters (2016)

"One starts to get the same feeling one had watching The Amazing Spider-Man a few years ago: why are we telling this story again, just with different people and a few remixed aspects?" Den of Geek
Posted Jul 10, 2016
1.5/5 36%

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

"When Yates cuts to a pointless wrestling match between Skarsgard and a digital gorilla, it's almost a relief." Den of Geek

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"Strange and tremendously engaging." Den of Geek

Warcraft (2016)

"All anyone seems concerned with regarding this listless, hollow film is brand extension." Den of Geek

Me Before You (2016)

"Emilia Clarke has more than her share of charisma... but it's not enough to save Me Before You, a cloying and predictable romantic drama." Den of Geek

Money Monster (2016)

"The movie feels strangely out of step and small." Den of Geek

Demolition (2016)

"[It's] a flimsy tale that ends up demolishing itself." Den of Geek

The Jungle Book (2016)

"... a new generation will absorb it cover to cover." Den of Geek

Keanu (2016)

"Repetitive enough to become tiresome but stopping short of being actively irritating, Keanu ultimately runs out of steam and inspiration" Den of Geek

Sing Street (2016)

"'Charming' is a perfect word to describe Sing Street. " Den of Geek

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"These are real characters, not empty action figures, and they're the reason the MCU has gone from success to success while other superhero franchises have stumbled or stalled." Den of Geek

American Psycho (2000)

"Harron and Bale have found a mirror that forces us to look at ourselves and ask tough, disturbing questions -- which is ultimately what the best satire always does." ‐TNT's Rough Cut
