B- 38% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016) "In a world in which our comic book movies have become dark and serious almost to the point of self-parody, reaching a zenith with this year's "Batman v Superman," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is a refreshing breath of levity.

Posted Apr 15, 2016

Posted Nov 25, 2015

Posted Oct 2, 2015
B 75% Black Mass (2015) "It's Depp's best work in years, suggesting that maybe his insistence on hiding behind heavy makeup and wigs in almost every recent role has not been the problem. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Posted Aug 26, 2015
A- 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "F. Gary Gray's film detailing the rise and splintering of the hugely influential rap group N.W.A. is very nearly a masterpiece. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
Posted Aug 13, 2015
A- 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "New writers and directors for each installment have kept the creativity flowing, and like the "Fast and Furious" movies, the "Mission: Impossible" film series has hit its stride later in its run. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
Posted Jul 31, 2015

Posted Jul 28, 2015
A- 81% Ant-Man (2015) "In more ways than one, "Ant-Man" is smaller than most of the rest of the MCU. The fate of the world is not immediately at stake, and that's a refreshing change. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
