1/10 0% Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser "JOE DIRT 2: BEAUTIFUL LOSER is not a good film. In fact, it is utterly terrible. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 24, 2015
7/10 55% Paper Towns (2015) "This coming-of-age tale seems impossibly romanticized, yet somehow it still manages to remain grounded and truthful. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jul 23, 2015
6/10 51% Boulevard (2015) "The best thing about Boulevard is to once again witness the depth and subtlety Robin Williams was able to give to a performance. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

6/10 19% Aloha (2015) "As a love letter to Hawaii, ALOHA is a sweet - and scenic - yet not always satisfying sentiment. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 29, 2015
5/10 74% The Connection (2015) "THE CONNECTION is a well made, but ultimately generic and predictable crime drama that never manages to rise above its influences. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted May 12, 2015
4/10 24% Child 44 (2015) "Ambitious to a fault, this is a slightly serviceable story of murder that features strong performances, but little more than that. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 20, 2015
4/10 9% Kill Me Three Times (2015) "This is the kind of flick that you can catch on Netflix and maybe find a few moments to entertain yourself, but nothing more. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Apr 7, 2015
9/10 91% White God (2015) "... there is much to admire in this near exceptional film, and I guarantee you will be fully invested in the two leads. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 27, 2015
7/10 78% Danny Collins (2015) "The best aspect of the film is the music. Both Ryan Adams and Theodore Shapiro deliver a sweet sounding score, as well as a couple of nice tracks. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Mar 18, 2015
2/10 17% The Gunman (2015) "This is a dull and convoluted mess that takes too long to get going, and unfortunately keeps going and going and going until the silly finale. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

7/10 29% Everly (2015) "EVERLY is a popcorn flick through and through, one that features a game leading lady and a director with a passion for excess. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 22, 2015
5/10 25% Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) "Fifty Shades of Grey is by no means a masterpiece. Yet there are moments where it rises above the material thanks to the lovely Dakota Johnson who is luminous, and a director that helps paint a very pretty picture. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Feb 13, 2015
3/10 12% Seventh Son (2015) "It's a waste of talent for all those involved. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

8/10 78% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) "It may not be be the smartest animated flick out there, but with all the wildly weird happenings, and impressive 3D effects being flung out at you, it is absolutely entertaining. Simply put, SpongeBob rocks! " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Jan 30, 2015
4/10 18% Strange Magic (2015) "At best, it is a tunefully cheerful collection of pop songs with decent animation. At worst, it is a meandering and dull hour and forty minutes of musical theatre that will be grating to anybody over the age of seven. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Jan 23, 2015
2/10 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "There are moments of sexy, and moments of crazy, but as a whole THE BOY NEXT DOOR is not worth paying a visit. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Jan 21, 2015
9/10 84% Predestination (2015) "Ethan Hawke, Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook all give terrific performances, but it is Snook who once again proves to be a major talent. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Nov 13, 2014

Posted Sep 10, 2014
5/10 26% As Above, So Below (2014) "Not the worst example of found footage by a long shot, and it moves a decent pace with a couple of good scares. However, this could have been a far more frightening feature if only it had expanded on its scary premise. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Posted Aug 29, 2014
6/10 43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) "As a whole and complete anthology, A DAME TO KILL FOR falls short of the first. " ‐ JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Posted Aug 6, 2014
