D- 48% Carrie (2013) Schlockier than a Rolox watch, this Carrie will have panphobes howling with laughter.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2013
C 96% Gravity (2013) As Cuarón spells out in his intro: "Life in space is impossible". So is forming any emotional attachment to Gravity.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2013
A- 81% Don Jon (2013) Gordon-Levitt's cracking directorial debut depicts porn/sex addiction infinitely more realistically -- and rollickingly -- than 2011's absurdly-overrated snoozefest Shame.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2013
C 70% Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (2013) The makers of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 spend the first five minutes of their subpar sequel recapping the original, a handy reminder just how inferior Flint Lockwood's second cinematic outing is to his first.‐ Final Cut on Film

D- 31% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) Bravo Jim Carrey, bravo. Refusing to promote your work in Kick-Ass 2 is the wisest career move you've ever made. ‐ NECN

C+ 67% Elysium (2013) What form of British-ish accent is Foster attempting exactly? A Razzie-worthy performance. ‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Aug 12, 2013
B+ 86% The Conjuring (2013) Thank God I live in newish construction.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2013
A- 71% Pacific Rim (2013) Utter awesomeness.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2013
C+ 73% Despicable Me 2 (2013) The Minions' decision to go solo next year is the smartest move since The Simpsons severed their relationship with Tracey Ullman.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2013
C- 60% The Bling Ring (2013) A stick-thin expose of a gaggle of brats obsessed with snatching Prada purses and Alexander McQueen shoes from celebs' high-up-in-the-hills chateaus.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2013
C- 66% World War Z (2013) We've seen it all before and seen it done far, far better. E.g., 28 Weeks Later, the Holy Grail of the zombie-contagion genre.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2013
C 55% Man of Steel (2013) Superman's brawl with Zod is interminable, an ungodly overload of CGI that amounts to a special effects bludgeoning.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2013
B 74% The East (2013) Marling and Batmanglij pull punches as things come to a close, opting for a more pacifist resolution than their fictional insurrectionist group would certainly espouse.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2013
B+ 83% This Is the End (2013) A rapturously-riotous, celeb-skewering raunchfest.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2013
B 35% The Internship (2013) Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's cinematic reunion renders the Google-glorifying, Revenge of the Nerds ripoff irresistibly likable -- make that +1-able.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2013
A 98% Before Midnight (2013) Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy come off as if they were conjoined for the past nine years in the gloriously-acted, hypnotically-conversational conclusion to the Before Sunrise trilogy -- the year's first legit contender for awards season love.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted May 28, 2013
A- 64% Epic (2013) Though Epic walks a woefully-worn, save-the-planet path, it manages to feel fresh, even when drawing inspiration directly from Alice in Wonderland, Avatar and The Lord of the Rings.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted May 21, 2013
B- 66% The Iceman (2013) Getting to see Shannon boogie to Blondie is enough to warrant a stay of execution.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted May 17, 2013
A- 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) A visually-stunning, theatrically-showy spectacle that's as lavishly grandiose as one of Gatsby's grotesquely over-the-top shindigs.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted May 10, 2013
C- 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) A movie so block-headed, so aimlessly busy, you'd think Michael Bay directed the thing. Actually, that would be an upgrade.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted May 3, 2013
F 46% To The Wonder (2013) Malick's profound message permeating throughout: Living in Oklahoma blows.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2013
B+ 68% Trance (2013) The film's sensory experience is too alluring to resist, Boyle salvaging his unduly swirly story with a slathering of his shimmering, sumptuous aesthetics.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2013
B 29% G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) Administers exhilaration without a Michael Bay level of enervation.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2013
B- 91% The Sapphires (2013) The most affable, innocuous outing ever set in a war zone.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2013
A- 67% Spring Breakers (2013) Korine kills it with a Britney Spears-backed montage of the pretty little gangsters protecting Franco's drug-trafficking turf. Gun-toting teens clad in string bikinis passing for high art? Indubitably.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2013
A 71% The Croods (2013) The Croods is the most entertaining film of the year thus far -- a Neolithic knockout.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2013
D 38% Admission (2013) Admission doesn't just misfire, it flatlines.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2013
B 96% West of Memphis (2012) I would have preferred Jackson's clinically-presented project display a bit more reverence for the three young lives that were brutally taken some twenty years ago.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 18, 2013
D- 36% The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013) If The Incredible Burt Wonderstone were a real Vegas show, its rightful home would be amongst the rubble of an imploded casino.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2013
C- 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) The film's CGI'd talking monkey is more alive than Franco. And it totally looks fake.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 7, 2013
B+ 80% The Place Beyond The Pines (2013) While Cianfrance's overambitious narrative and Crash-y conclusion come perilously close to bringing the film to its knees, the electrifying first half more than compensates. ‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2013
C 69% Stoker (2013) Dripping with mood but deprived of dynamics, Stoker fails as an overall film yet wonders with the wizardry of the man behind the cam.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2013
B- 33% Escape From Planet Earth (2013) A surprisingly well-produced effort that fills the recent vacuum of family films without totally sucking.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2013
B- 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) A bombastic onslaught of smashed-up machinery and king-sized explosions that adequately sates your neanderthalic needs.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Feb 14, 2013
C- 46% Beautiful Creatures (2013) A supernatural spell of boringness smothers it all.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Feb 12, 2013
C- 83% Side Effects (2013) Its big twist is telegraphed so soon after its start, there's zero shock value and zero suspense as the film plods towards its pathetically pat ending.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2013
A 100% Sound City (2013) An electrifying and enthralling labor of love that acts as a defibrillator for your creative juices.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2013
A- 81% Warm Bodies (2013) It's hard to beat a brain-eating scene with John Waits' "Missing You" blaring in the background, the '80s ode to the forlorn has never sounded so grotesquely poignant.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 22, 2013
D 28% Broken City (2013) A tedious, needlessly-convoluted clunker.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2013
B 93% Amour (2012) Haneke addresses the ravaging effects of aging in a starkly intimate way but Amour oddly lacks affectivity. Something that should be overflowing with emotion is strangely as sterile as Georges and Anne's Parisian apartment.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2013
B+ 32% Gangster Squad (2013) It's the premium cast that redeems the project. ‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2013
A- 92% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) While it's executed with the same level of meticulous precision as the raid itself, you can't help but wonder if Bigelow could have compressed things just a bit.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2013
C+ 81% The Impossible (2012) The Impossible is immersive only when it's fully immersed.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2013
A 87% Django Unchained (2012) At a shade under three hours, Django Unchained never once feels that length...a testament to the ferocity of Tarantino's fantastically unmannerly concoction.‐ Final Cut on Film
Read More | Posted Dec 25, 2012
A 69% Les Misérables (2012) This is filmmaking of the most opulent order -- par excellence.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Dec 25, 2012
C- 51% This is 40 (2012) Teetering between tepidly humorous and totally unfunny, Judd Apatow's crazy long crudefest plays like bits and pieces of a stand-up routine that would get a comedian booed off the stage.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2012
B+ 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Packed with crescendos and crap-outs, Peter Jackson's mega-bloated beginning to Bilbo Baggins' pilgrimage across Middle-earth to Lonely Mountain both awes and bores.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2012
C 74% Killing Them Softly (2012) Everything about the loaded-with-lowlives crime flick is elongated, extended to the very precipice of its expiration date.‐ NECN
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2012
B- 62% Hitchcock (2012) Mirren's "I am woman, hear me roar" nuclear weapon-level unloading on her hubby is a contender for the strongest acting moment this year - time stops, jaws drop when she unleashes it.‐ NECN
