9.5/10 75% The Hateful Eight (2015) Armed with vicious humor and an intense story, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is as brutal in its insights into race relations and human nature as it is in its depiction of violence and the Wild West. ‐ IGN Movies

8 out of 10 74% Black Mass (2015) Coiled, magnetic, frightening and seductive, Depp's Whitey Bulger is more like the serpent Kaa from The Jungle Book than he is your usual screen gangster. ...

Posted Sep 17, 2015
5/10 9% Fantastic Four (2015) Fantastic Four isn't unwatchable or flat-out awful. It's aggressively mundane, and devoid of energy, wonder, wit and whimsy. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Jan 14, 2015
85% Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2) (2008) Despite the sheer force of imagination that's on display from the first frame to the last, Hellboy II simply feels like an unnecessary vanity project. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Dec 8, 2014
7.0 27% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) Director Ridley Scott gets lost in the desert at times in Exodus: Gods and Kings, his epic, but not entirely effective take on the story of Moses' journey from Prince of Egypt to Hebrew leader. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 3, 2014
3/5 90% Coraline (2009) For all its shortcomings, Coraline nevertheless has more imagination, heart and inventiveness in it than most recent animated films. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 17, 2014

Posted Oct 2, 2014
8/10 89% The Drop (2014) The movie's slow burn pacing may try some viewers' patience. But if you can hang in there until the final act -- where the movie ratchets up the tension, making one edgy with anticipation -- then you'll find the investment worth it. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 12, 2014
6/10 25% As Above, So Below (2014) Ultimately, As Above/So Below is more unsettling and uncomfortable than it is scary. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Aug 29, 2014
3% Zoom (2006) Although it is aimed at very young children, Zoom doesn't even work as a kid flick. It is truly one of the worst films of the year. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2014
5.8/10 6% Paranoia (2013) A couple of business rivals trying to steal each other's cell phone secrets is just not that gripping to watch unfold, especially when it's anchored by such a dull protagonist. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 23, 2014
7.2/10 67% Lucy (2014) Bolstered by Scarlett Johansson's confident performance and director Luc Besson's eye for action, Lucy will likely be a bit too much of a mind job for most viewers but it deserves kudos for its sheer loony ambition. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 23, 2014

7/10 17% Sex Tape (2014) As far as date night movies go, you could do far worse than the raunchy yet sweet Sex Tape, featuring solid comedic turns from Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, and Rob Lowe. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 16, 2014
6.6/10 28% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) Sinister director Scott Derrickson's "based on a true story" Deliver Us From Evil would've been better had it exorcized the cop movie cliches. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 2, 2014
65% Watchmen (2009) I truly wanted to love Watchmen, but I never warmed up to it and ended up only liking it in parts. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 10, 2014
19% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) The first Transformers may not have been bigger, but it was certainly better. ‐ IGN Movies

5.9/10 33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) MacFarlane's die-hard fans may find the silver lining in this movie, but everyone else will likely find A Million Ways to Die in the West one of this summer's big disappointments. ‐ IGN Movies

Posted May 13, 2014
5.5/10 51% Trouble with the Curve (2012) The film doesn't ask you to do anything; it tells you what to feel, when to feel it, and lets you know that everything will play out just as expected so that you won't get startled. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 12, 2014
7.4/10 79% 42 (2013) 42 is a solid crowd-pleaser about courage, endurance, justice and tolerance, but also about love: Robinson's love for his wife, the bromance between Robinson and Rickey, and their love for the game of baseball. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 7, 2014
7.5/10 70% Son of Batman (2014) Son of Batman, the 20th DC Universe Animated Original Movie, makes considerable alterations to the original Grant Morrison comic book tale, but still delivers plenty of entertainment value for Bat-fans. ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2014
7/10 20% Sabotage (2014) Sabotage is far more effective than its action-centric trailers have suggested, with the film more a mystery-thriller that actually offers Arnold Schwarzenegger and the cool ensemble a chance to act and not just shoot guns. ‐ IGN Movies
