Posted Dec 24, 2015
B- 62% Concussion (2015) "Smith, with a convincing African accent and without his usual stylish cool, is in top form, reminding us he's an actor in addition to a huge movie star. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Posted Nov 25, 2015
A 94% Creed (2015) "... Hits many of the same story beats as the original "Rocky" but is very much its own entity, introducing a compelling new character and taking an old favorite into the most dramatically rich terrain he's encountered. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Posted Aug 26, 2015
A- 88% 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- 80% 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)
Posted Jul 17, 2015
B- 26% Terminator Genisys (2015) "... It's hard not to get the feeling that we've been here before. And that's both part of the movie's fun and what holds it back at times. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Posted Jun 10, 2015
B 94% Spy (2015) "Instead of being an outright parody of the spy movies, "Spy" subverts and pokes fun at the genre's conventions while deploying McCarthy, a highly visible presence the past few years, in a fresh way. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
Posted Jun 5, 2015
B 49% San Andreas (2015) "Objectively, "San Andreas" probably shouldn't work. But you don't enjoy a roller coaster by thinking about it. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
Posted May 29, 2015

Posted Apr 3, 2015
A 97% It Follows (2015) "Easily the best horror film I've seen since "The Cabin in Woods" (2012), "It Follows" is an instant classic. " ‐ Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
