Posted Jul 28, 2015
8.5/10 62% Mission: Impossible (1996) "Still holds up as a fun, unique entry in the action spy genre and launched Tom Cruise's second career arc as an action megastar. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Posted Jul 27, 2015
9/10 59% Southpaw (2015) "Fuqua and Sutter don't spend the entire film chasing clichés and Gyllenhaal delivers such a strong performance that while it may at times be familiar, you'll remain engaged. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

9/10 79% Ant-Man (2015) "Guaranteed to feature 2015's best climactic battle atop a train set -- pardon the terrible pun -- 'Ant-Man' is freaking f-ANT-astic fun and the year's most pleasant surprise. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Posted Jul 16, 2015
5/10 85% Trainwreck (2015) "On the heels of the tremendous 'Obvious Child,' which challenged conventions about the modern female, 'Trainwreck' doesn't feel nearly as groundbreaking and revolutionary. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

7/10 54% Minions (2015) "While they're probably better-suited in hilarious background roles there's a lot of fun to be had for fans. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

Posted Jul 8, 2015

6.5/10 74% Big Game (2015) "Helander avoids the mistake of taking the story too seriously. It's a crazy premise and he embraces it in a way that's easier to accept than other president in jeopardy films. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Posted Jun 25, 2015

Posted Jun 19, 2015
3/10 No Score Yet Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League Vs. Bizarro League (2015) "Strictly for younger viewers happy to laugh at Superman and company acting goofy. For other viewers, you've got 49 minutes to keep the kids distracted -make the most of it. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

6/10 71% Jurassic World (2015) "While it isn't going to end up on many 2015 Top 10 lists, this is a standard fun, check your brain at the door kind of summer blockbuster. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files

4/10 16% God's Not Dead (2014) "Will likely get a mildly, if unenthusiastic, passing grade from its target audience, but for the non-believers, it's going to prove a tough and condescending experience. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Posted May 27, 2015

Posted Apr 16, 2015
8.5/10 No Score Yet Batman Vs. Robin (2015) "More a mash-up of two of the most highly regarded Batman stories in the last 20 years than its title implies it stands alongside the best efforts of Warner Bros. Animated. " ‐ Lyles' Movie Files
Posted Apr 15, 2015

Posted Mar 30, 2015
