Posted Jul 24, 2016
3/4 77% Lights Out (2016) "Lights Out ends up being a good example of taking an oft-used premise and turning it into something that's highly effective. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 21, 2016
4.5/5 91% The Return of the Living Dead (1985) "Dan O'Bannon's The Return of the Living Dead is a classic of the zombie genre that delivers a good laugh with its silly, over-the-top nature, while also giving you several thrills along the way. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 18, 2016
2.5/5 58% Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) "Insidious: Chapter 3 may be a slight improvement over the previous sequel, but with its continued over-reliance on jump scares and a basic, repetitive plot, it merely becomes another chapter that will leave horror fans unsatisfied. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 17, 2016
2.5/5 78% Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) "What we're left with is a gorgeous, but tedious adaptation of the classic tale that feels confused about its own identity, leaping this way and that, while at other times just meandering about. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 16, 2016
3.5/5 87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "Everybody Wants Some!! may seem to set about without a purpose or direction, but under writer/director Richard Linklater's guidance, it becomes a rather entertaining character piece mixed together with a delightful nostalgia trip. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 11, 2016
3.5/5 100% The Dresser (1983) "While The Dresser may have ups and downs in its narrative, there's no denying that Sir Anthony Hopkins and Sir Ian McKellen deliver stunning performances that alone make the film worth seeing. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 11, 2016
4/5 87% House of Cards: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "It may have a few subplots that needed to be removed or retooled, but it makes up for it by having several more that are thoroughly engaging and filled with the same great tension and excitement that made us fall in love with the show in the first place. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jul 6, 2016
1.5/4 36% The Legend of Tarzan (2016) "When one thinks of Tarzan, they think of fun, excitement, thrills, and fantastic adventure (even the cheesy 30s films had all of these), not something dull, tedious, and morose like this. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jun 30, 2016
3.5/5 91% No Way Out (1987) "No Way Out may take about half its runtime to finally get the story moving, but when it does, the audience is treated to a grand thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jun 21, 2016

Posted Jun 20, 2016
4/5 92% The Martian (2015) "Sir Ridley Scott's The Martian is a thoroughly entertaining epic that easily ranks as one of the best films of 2015, and as the director's best film since 2000's Gladiator. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jun 13, 2016
3/4 80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "Basically, the sequel takes almost everything that was wrong with the first film and vastly improves upon it, leading to a horror experience that ranks as one of the better offerings of the last few years. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jun 9, 2016
4/5 85% Hail, Caesar! (2016) "With a sharp script and an excellent ensemble, Hail, Caesar! is a delightful love letter to filmmaking that blends the Coen Bros.' passion for the art with an exquisite tapestry of characters and storylines. " ‐ The Blu Spot

Posted May 30, 2016
2.5/5 42% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may have seemed like an interesting idea on paper, but when trying to combine these two elements on film, it makes for a narratively-befuddled experience in which they only get in each other's way. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted May 30, 2016
2/4 48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "It would appear that this new franchise is finally starting to show a little weakness, for what Singer delivers with X-Men: Apocalypse doesn't even come close to reaching the quality of the films that preceded it. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted May 26, 2016
2.5/5 51% Risen (2016) "While Kevin Reynolds does try to do something a little different with Risen than we're used to seeing, it ultimately can't overcome its shoddy pacing and uneventful storyline, turning this into a rather forgettable biblical outing. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted May 23, 2016
2.5/5 91% The Witch (2016) "The Witch does an excellent job in establishing its 1630s New England setting, but when it comes to the film's storyline, it's never quite able to reach the compelling and disturbing heights that writer/director Robert Eggers strives for. " ‐ The Blu Spot

3.5/5 98% Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs may not be the best example of a Disney classic, thanks mainly to its lightly-plotted story, but with great animation, memorable characters, and beautiful music, it still remains one of their most endearing films. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Feb 1, 2016
3/5 76% Goosebumps (2015) "Goosebumps is an interesting attempt to turn the beloved series of books into a film, but with a story that's uninspired and a bit rushed, it merely turns into an overstuffed tale that lacks focus. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jan 25, 2016
2.5/5 98% Mr. Robot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Mr. Robot sets up an intriguing premise and a fascinating lead character, but its failure to build upon them results in a show that is just as cold as its aptly-chosen title. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jan 11, 2016
3.5/5 94% Sicario (2015) "Sicario may have a lot of downtime as it slowly unravels its plot, but it more than makes up for it with plenty of thrills, a fine ensemble, and excellent work from cinematographer Roger Deakins. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Jan 5, 2016

Posted Jan 5, 2016
3.5/4 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) "What Tarantino has delivered here is a fascinating portrait of deception and mistrust. The Hateful Eight has the incredible writer/director back in fine form, presenting not only an intriguing script, but also top-notch direction. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Dec 25, 2015
3.5/4 82% The Revenant (2015) "It's a grand adventure that delivers on its tale of survival and revenge, and though it might be a little too intense for some, it's ultimately well-worth the two and a half hours to experience one of the most breathtaking films of the year. " ‐ The Blu Spot
Posted Dec 25, 2015
3/4 92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) "What Abrams delivers here is still a pretty good start to this new trilogy, but you can't help but think how great it might have been if they had done their own thing and given us something new. " ‐ The Blu Spot

Posted Nov 9, 2015
3/5 88% Mr. Holmes (2015) "Despite a brilliant performance from Sir Ian McKellen, Mr. Holmes is a little too scattered in its plot to leave much of an impact, making you wish that there had been more focus on its intriguing mystery and less on the less satisfying parts of the tale. " ‐ The Blu Spot
