Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

"Fans of catheters, snot, menstruation, cat anuses and a hearse filled with farts won't be disappointed. All others need not - and should not - apply." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

1.5/4 41%

Horns (2014)

"The movie's hormone-level anger reeks of brimstone, Axe-body-spray and mid-1990s trenchcoat-mafia egocentricity. Mess with this much bull, you get "Horns."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dracula Untold (2014)

""Dracula Untold" tries to be the "Lord of the Rings" of horror movies. Surprisingly, it mostly succeeds." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Equalizer (2014)

"[Fuqua] has not only seemingly lost his eye for arty action set pieces, he apparently can't draw characters in more than one dimension." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dolphin Tale 2 (2014)

"Once Bethany Hamilton of "Soul Surfer" fame shows up for stunning group-swim cameos, the shallower story is instantly forgiven." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

When The Game Stands Tall (2014)

"Treats football like this summer's "Godzilla" reboot treated radioactive dinosaurs, eking out game-day and practice footage before piling it on so thick that the last minutes become an instantly forgettable blur of clashing helmets and torn-up turf." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

What If (2014)

"Radcliffe and Kazan's crucible becomes trying to fully inhabit characters who talk past each other, never amounting to more than the sum of their snark." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Into The Storm (2014)

"Dangers might include rapidly decreasing green-screen visibility and high winds capable of producing gusts of stupid dialogue." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

I Origins (2014)

""I Origins" will divide audiences without multiplying them." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Earth to Echo (2014)

""Echo" frustratingly short-circuits its young protagonists' self-determination. Along with the odds of us caring about anything they do." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

For No Good Reason (2014)

"For 89 madcap minutes, Paul and interviewer Johnny Depp conduct a surface-level whistle-stop tour of the artist's life, never once outstaying our curiosity." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)

"Jumbling frat-house humor with nostalgic period sets and costumes is like writing a punchline to a Frederic Remington painting. Only less hilarious." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Brick Mansions (2014)

"Nothing more than a nearly scene-by-scene remake of "District B13," itself a glorified Nike commercial with French subtitles." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Raid 2 (2014)

""The Raid 2" comes chock full of baseball bats pulping skulls, box-cutters slicing arteries and a henchman wielding what looks like carpet knives, redecorating the floor with opponents' entrails." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3.5/4 89%

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"A sizzling, stand-alone conspiracy that lights the fuse on the Marvel universe and actually retrofits "Iron Man 2's" clunkiest component parts." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Divergent (2014)

"Director Neil Burger cinematically steamrolls the potholed yet powerful source material, buffing his film adaptation to a gooey asphalt sheen." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Eva Green shows up as the film's best visual effect, transposing a one-note henchwoman into a symphony of glowers, glares, gnashing teeth and blunt-force decolletage." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Pompeii (2014)

"Unfortunately, "Pompeii" turns out to be a blue-ribbon science fair volcano: all papier-mache, baking soda and vinegar, but no actual heat." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

1.5/4 13%

Winter's Tale (2014)

""Winter's Tale" perfectly portrays the confusion of falling in love and not knowing all the rules because you lost your Dungeons & Dragons manual and never took Comparative Religions 101." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013)

"The only thing worse than the commercialization of the holidays is trying to tell the difference between commercials and certain holiday movies." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3.5/4 74%

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

""The Desolation of Smaug" sometimes feels slower than an Ent, but audiences will be spellbound by the museum-quality production design, top-notch visual effects and endearingly unironic performances." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Out of the Furnace (2013)

"A surprisingly unwatered-down signature flavor, mixing motor oil, gunpowder, sweat, pig iron, dollar bills, denim, skunky beer, blood and dirty socks." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (2013)

"Prop gags that "Saturday Night Live" might stretch to fill an entire sketch fizzle almost immediately, while director Jeff Tremaine's low-def hidden-camera footage often looks like it was shot on Skype." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 24, 2013
2/4 49%

Escape Plan (2013)

""Escape Plan's" totally unstylish production design somehow seems less cinematic than real life. A script with zingers including "You hit like a vegetarian" doesn't exactly pump up the excitement either." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Oct 17, 2013
1.5/4 36%

Salinger (2013)

"Just because most attempts to deconstruct reclusive artists like J.D. Salinger are mechanically illustrative yet poetically disappointing doesn't mean they have to be so shameless. Or outright crummy." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Family (2013)

"The movie's dark humor and realistic, often sexual violence go together about as well as Cabernet and a mugging." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Riddick (2013)

"Always bet on Diesel - especially when he's doing what he's most average at, which happens to be starring in sci-fi "Conan the Barbarian" knock-offs." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Closed Circuit (2013)

"Although cloak-and-dagger fans might be intrigued by the foggy atmosphere, "Closed Circuit's" conspiracy theories are mostly suspect." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

""Kick-Ass 2" literally stabs good taste in the eye, featuring dismemberments aplenty and so many raunchy one-liners Hit-Girl's alter-ego might actually be Joan Rivers." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

We're The Millers (2013)

""The Millers" might be the first movie ever made that could have been improved by casting Pamela Anderson, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Chris Brown." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

I'm So Excited! (2013)

"Almodóvar joins the mile-high club, setting his films' trademark sexcapades, overwrought telenovella plot twists and bubblegum-colored imagery aboard a doomed airliner." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 25, 2013
2.5/4 43%

Red 2 (2013)

"The most significant difference between "RED 2" and the original film is its surprising lack of authentic human behavior." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The East (2013)

""The East's" eco-friendly politics might be Swiss, but its overly sentimental storyline is pure Velveeta." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

3.5/4 98%

Before Midnight (2013)

"Hawke, Delpy and director Richard Linklater strike sparks like never before and, in the process, question everything Jesse and Celine have gone through - even the notions of fate and true love that brought them together." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

2/4 86%

Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

"Jettisoning the franchise's optimistic, socially aware sci-fi, not to mention character development or a logical plot, Darkness turns out to be any Vulcan's worst nightmare: Team America: World Police with Tribbles." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Mud (2013)

"As far as brawny dramas or ripping coming-of-age yarns go, you could do a lot worse than getting stuck in the "Mud."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Evil Dead (2013)

"A dead end." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

"Ultimately, "Olympus Has Fallen" would have lost no more credibility if it revealed that the White House was actually made of birthday cake and Butler had to eat his way to safety." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Admission (2013)

Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)

"As directorial regressions go, "Jack the Giant Slayer" seems positively M. Night Shyamalanian." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Beautiful Creatures (2013)

"Too bad Ehrenreich and Englert have so little chemistry; it often appears director Richard LaGravenese shot their scenes with stand-ins." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Jack Reacher (2012)

"A workmanlike take on "Jack Reacher" that fittingly adapts Child's fragmented sentences and blunt-force drama. Call it "Hemingway of the Gun."" ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Red Dawn (2012)

Wreck-it Ralph (2012)

Samsara (2012)

"Crams all of the supersized format's extra resolution into a standard image that's so pristine it often feels like 3-D." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Seven Psychopaths (2012)

"All great films are both fairy tales and confessionals, and when the two collide, what's left beyond the crumple zone is magic." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Won't Back Down (2012)

""Won't Back Down's" suggestions for improving K-12 education include having kids wish themselves into college using "The Secret." Yeah, that should do it." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Killer Joe (2012)

"Resembling yard sculptures in a trailer park, where trash becomes art, "Killer Joe" is a Picasso signed with a branding iron." ‐Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
