Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 96% Spotlight (2015) Everyone plays their part and plays it extremely well, but it's ultimately about serving the story over a particular character. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 20, 2015
2.5/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) If anything good comes out of Mockingjay: Part 2, it's that it will finally convince studios to stop dragging out these stories for the sake of their own greed. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 19, 2015
2.5/5 66% The Night Before (2015) The Night Before is at best a fleetingly funny comedy that ranks as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's weakest collaboration to date. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Nov 19, 2015
2.5/5 35% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) There's a complacency to the storytelling that prevents the film from ever moving outside its comfort zone when that's exactly what a movie like this should be doing. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 29, 2015
3/5 71% Crimson Peak (2015) Crimson Peak is a sumptuously designed genre flick that delivers a different kind of horror from the typical ghosts-and-ghouls haunted house story. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 15, 2015
2.5/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) A harmless slice of family entertainment that evokes the goofy humor and PG-rated scares of other Halloween classics like Hocus Pocus. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 15, 2015
3.5/5 84% The Walk (2015) This is the kind of unbelievable true story that you couldn't make up if you tried, and it's ultimately what makes The Walk such an enjoyable, gripping experience. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Oct 8, 2015
2.5/5 62% The Intern (2015) Though the movie gets by on its sweet, fish-out-of-water story in the first hour... it takes a sudden detour into more serious territory midway through and never quite recovers. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 24, 2015
3/5 74% Black Mass (2015) Despite being a fairly compelling true-life story with some fine performances, Black Mass never attains the greatness to match its ambition. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 17, 2015
3/5 63% Sleeping with Other People (2015) A sweet and candid romantic comedy that ranks as one of the more enjoyable entries in the genre in quite some time. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Sep 10, 2015
2/5 83% Mistress America (2015) Much like Brooke's proposed restaurant, Mistress America is a mishmash of ideas that never really comes together. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 27, 2015
2.5/5 43% American Ultra (2015) Although the movie boasts a talented cast and intriguing premise, it never amounts to more than a mildly amusing end-of-summer distraction. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 20, 2015
3/5 77% People Places Things (2015) A sweet and honest little indie that's held together by a great performance from leading man Jemaine Clement. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 14, 2015
3/5 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) An entertaining homage to retro spy films that makes up for what it lacks in substance with plenty of laughs and undeniable style. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 13, 2015
3/5 79% Cop Car (2015) A solid, low-budget thriller that proves you don't need to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to make a good summer film. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Aug 6, 2015
2/5 26% Vacation (2015) It's basically just a raunchier, less funny rehash of the Harold Ramis/John Hughes classic that lacks its predecessor's charm and heart. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 28, 2015
3/5 61% Southpaw (2015) Southpaw is perhaps [Gyllenhaal's] most impressive piece of acting to date, if only because he's managed to take a fairly standard redemption story and elevate it on the strength of his shoulders alone. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 23, 2015
3.5/5 81% Ant-Man (2015) A funny and fast-paced superhero film that serves as a welcome breath of fresh air compared to the typical end-of-the-world summer blockbusters. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 15, 2015
1/5 16% The Gallows (2015) A dull, poorly acted and generally awful found footage film that's void of any sense of terror or fear. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jul 9, 2015
3.5/5 63% Magic Mike XXL (2015) Magic Mike XXL is everything the first film should have been and more - a fun and energetic road movie that makes up for its loose structure by unabashedly pandering to the audience. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 29, 2015
2.5/5 82% The Overnight (2015) The movie has its share of laughs... but it's mostly a missed opportunity to create an intelligent sex comedy about relationships in the 21st century. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 18, 2015
3/5 32% Entourage (2015) The reason Entourage survived for eight seasons was the amazing chemistry between the cast, and it's great to see the whole gang back together again. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jun 2, 2015
3/5 48% San Andreas (2015) San Andreas doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is... VFX-driven disaster porn at its finest. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 28, 2015
3.5/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) Fury Road is about as nontraditional as a big-budget studio movie gets, surviving on its sheer originality, audacity and no-holds-barred attitude. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 14, 2015
2/5 48% The D Train (2015) By the time The D Train has anything important to say (albeit at the cost of some poorly conceived, mildly homophobic jokes), the shock of the central plot device has worn off. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 7, 2015
1.5/5 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) Women in Hollywood may be desperate to prove that they can be funny too, but Hot Pursuit is so painfully dull, mind-numbingly stupid and just plain lazy that it doesn't exactly help their cause. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted May 7, 2015
2.5/5 62% Unfriended (2015) Unfriended should be applauded for addressing a very serious issue in today's culture of anonymity-driven public shaming, but the fact that it's surrounded by so much stupidity weakens its message. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3/5 44% True Story (2015) The film is pretty standard fare that, considering the crazy-but-true nature of the story, deserved something a little more memorable than this. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015
3.5/5 93% Ex Machina (2015) Ex Machina is intelligent science fiction operating at a very high level. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 16, 2015
2/5 14% Kill Me Three Times (2015) Kill Me Three Times had the potential to be better, [but] it never once makes good on that promise. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Apr 9, 2015
2/5 28% Insurgent (2015) Insurgent does get a few things right along the way, [but] they're completely overshadowed by the general dullness of the rest of the movie. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 19, 2015
2/5 60% Run All Night (2015) It's become so tiresome watching [Neeson] play the same character again and again that the film is even more forgettable than usual. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 12, 2015
2.5/5 97% It Follows (2015) It Follows may have a pretty terrifying premise - the kind of story that urban legends are born from - but it's much scarier in concept than execution. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 12, 2015
1.5/5 9% The Cobbler (2015) It's difficult to say what's more troubling: that the film doesn't do enough with its clever premise, or that it doesn't seem to care. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 12, 2015
3/5 63% The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) While it's not as good as its predecessor, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel still skates by on the delightful charm of its ensemble cast. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Mar 5, 2015
1.5/5 29% Everly (2015) Everly is never able to match its B-movie aspirations, instead forced to flounder in the gutter like the filthy, exploitative grindhouse film that it is. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 26, 2015
2.5/5 56% Focus (2015) Focus is basically two movies stitched together by the same connective tissue, and only one of the halves is any good. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 26, 2015
3.5/5 74% Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) In the age of the overserious spy film (see: Daniel Craig's Bond, the Jason Bourne series, etc.), this is exactly the bold, silly kick up the ass that the genre needed. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3.5/5 96% What We Do In The Shadows (2015) Time will tell whether What We Do in the Shadows is destined for cult status, but any movie that makes you laugh this hard (even if only sporadically) at least deserves to be part of the conversation. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 12, 2015
3/5 73% The Voices (2015) A flawed but amusing dark comedy that plays like a delightfully strange mix between Doctor Dolittle and American Psycho. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Feb 5, 2015
1/5 12% Mortdecai (2015) [Mortdecai] fails on just about every level, so committed to its ridiculous premise that it doesn't bother to step back and recognize what an unholy mess it is. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2/5 34% Blackhat (2015) Blackhat could have been a very timely thriller about cyber-terrorism... but instead, it's just another style-over-substance misfire from Mann. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Jan 15, 2015
3.5/5 89% A Most Violent Year (2015) A smartly directed character study of a man fighting to uphold the antiquated ideals of the American Dream. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 30, 2014
3/5 72% Big Eyes (2014) While Big Eyes features some strong lead performances and a fascinating story, just like Margaret Keane's paintings, it never amounts to more than a pleasant distraction. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 25, 2014
3.5/5 99% Selma (2015) To DuVernay's credit, she manages to make almost every moment as riveting as the last, and a big part of that success falls on the casting, even those in bit roles. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 23, 2014
2/5 74% Inherent Vice (2015) It's as if the film, like many of its characters, is in a constant state of a drug-addled high, unable to remain focused or make sense of anything that's going on. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 18, 2014
2.5/5 46% The Gambler (2014) The Gambler had all the right ingredients... but it's a disappointing misfire that fails to capitalize on its intriguing premise. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 18, 2014
3/5 59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) The Battle of the Five Armies is the weakest entry in the Hobbit series, but it's a nonetheless fitting end to a trilogy that's biggest problem was taking so long to get there. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 16, 2014
3/5 85% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) It's not that Hellboy II is a particularly bad sequel, but that it tries to do way too much in the time allotted. ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
Posted Dec 8, 2014
3/5 65% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014) Although the great performances and promise of what's to come help offset the listless pacing and general needlessness of splitting the final book into two movies, the whole thing feels like one giant tease for "Part 2." ‐ Bullz-Eye.com
