2.5/4 32% Entourage (2015) "An almost perfect recreation of the HBO series - just a little bigger, longer and more desperate to justify its existence. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jun 2, 2015
3/4 74% Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) "With Marvel's universe expanding and intertwining at an ever increasing rate, "Age of Ultron" feels less like a sequel than a cosmic event. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Apr 30, 2015
2.5/4 61% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "Rarely has a final battle been so anticlimactic (or padding been so apparent). " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 16, 2014
3/4 71% Interstellar (2014) "Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic is a beautiful, ambitious, ultimately flawed film about nothing less than the survival of the human race. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Nov 6, 2014
3/4 95% Snowpiercer (2014) "If you can buy the premise of this Bong Joon-ho graphic novel adaptation, you're in for a good ride. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 6, 2014
2/4 74% Godzilla (2014) "Ambitious and reverent reboot may not manage to satisfy either purists or modern moviegoing audiences. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 16, 2014
2.5/4 53% The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) "The first sequel in this prematurely rebooted franchise is freed from the shackles of the origin story but still exists in the shadow of the Raimi movies. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 1, 2014
2.5/4 89% Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) "The First Avenger's second outing is a third-rate conspiracy thriller, but Chris Evans and company give it their all. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Apr 3, 2014
3/4 74% The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) "This second "Hobbit" film is a worthy entry in the Jackson/Tolkien canon. But after almost three hours in the theater, having a incomplete story feels like a cheat. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 12, 2013
3.5/4 97% Gravity (2013) "If you can get past the heartstring-tugging, the amped up soundtrack, and George Clooney's relentless Clooneyness, this stunning space saga is the very reason we go to the movies. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Oct 3, 2013
1/4 58% Riddick (2013) "As you're watching this third Riddick installment, you can actually feel the character's potential being wasted, along with precious minutes of your time. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Sep 5, 2013
2.5/4 80% Europa Report (2013) "Beautifully-crafted sci-fi entry in the "found footage" genre is both as wondrous and monotonous as deep space travel. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 2, 2013
2.5/4 70% The Wolverine (2013) "This second attempt to bring the "X-Men" character to a solo franchise moves along at a brisk clip but never finds its footing as either a brooding return to graphic novel form or a rousing actioner. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 25, 2013
3.5/4 56% Man of Steel (2013) "Zack Snyder's epic adaptation gives this generation a Superman movie to call its own. Call it "Superman Begins". " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jun 13, 2013
3/4 83% This Is the End (2013) "It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel high. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jun 11, 2013
1.5/4 19% The Hangover Part III (2013) "This (fingers crossed) final installment of the stillborn franchise is as bleakly unfunny and tone-deaf as its predecessors. It succeeds in only one thing: making you want to get drunk enough to forget you saw it. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 24, 2013
2.5/4 87% Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) "This ill-named sequel plays more like a transitional story than its own film. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 14, 2013
2.5/4 48% The Great Gatsby (2013) "Baz Luhrmann's delicious visuals struggle to enliven a fairly standard retelling of the Fitzgerald classic. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 9, 2013
3/4 79% Iron Man 3 (2013) "The third time's a charmer for this Marvel franchise, thanks to a clever script and, of course, its inimitable star. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 3, 2013
3/4 59% Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) "Making a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz" takes courage and brains. This one's got a little of both, but most of all it has heart. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Mar 6, 2013
1/4 14% A Good Day To Die Hard (2013) "This insultingly slap-dash sequel has as little relation to the original "Die Hard" as it does to logic and narrative coherence. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Feb 14, 2013
3/4 32% Fanboys (2008) Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jan 22, 2013
3/4 93% Zero Dark Thirty (2013) "Kathryn Bigelow's painstaking account of the events that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden favors dramatization over character and suspense. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 20, 2012
3/4 64% The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) "Get ready for a more heated debate than any election season. Is Peter Jackson's ambitious, overblown adaptation worth it, or is it a flagrant attempt to create a cash cow out of a children's book? The answer is yes. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 13, 2012
3/4 62% Hitchcock (2012) "This slight biopic isn't as good as any of the master's films, but it's worth seeing for the performances by Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Nov 21, 2012
2.5/4 92% Skyfall (2012) "An obsession with age, and an underwhelming plot, has this 50th anniversary Bond installment showing its years. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Nov 8, 2012
2/4 77% Flight (2012) "A highly pedigreed Lifetime movie about a heroic pilot who's also a raging alcoholic. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Nov 1, 2012
2/4 10% House at the End of the Street (2012) "This convoluted psychological thriller unravels as it should be tightening. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Sep 21, 2012
0/4 3% The Apparition (2012) "The only thing scary about this DOA horror attempt is that it ever got made. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 24, 2012
3/4 87% ParaNorman (2012) "Gleefully twisted fairytale about a small medium with large problems. If only the script were as deeply textured as the beautiful stop-motion animation. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 17, 2012
3/4 55% The Bourne Legacy (2012) "Matt who? Jeremy Renner finally gets his due in this well-crafted and entirely satisfying entry in the sturdy spy franchise. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 9, 2012
3/4 64% The Campaign (2012) "The comedic one-upmanship between Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis results in a raunchy political comedy that's also insightful almost in spite of itself. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 9, 2012
3/4 30% Total Recall (2012) "You'll want to remember the sci-fi futurescape but forget the plot in this "Recall" reboot. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Aug 2, 2012
2/4 17% The Watch (2012) "This half-baked alien invasion comedy is just barely Watch-able. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 27, 2012
3/4 87% The Dark Knight Rises (2012) "The epic, unwieldy conclusion to the "Dark Knight" trilogy is everything that made its predecessors great but it can't rise as high as the bar had been set. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 19, 2012
2/4 51% Savages (2012) "Despite a quick pace and a few flashes of brutal violence, Oliver Stone's narcotics thriller feels sanitized, like a drug that's been cut one too many times. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 5, 2012
3/4 72% The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) "It's a tribute to the enduring strength of the wall-crawling superhero that this redundant origin story is as good as it is. Well, that and Andrew Garfield's excellent performance as the title. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jul 2, 2012
2.5/4 67% Ted (2012) "This comedy of a boy and his talking bear - which plays like a long episode of "Family Guy" - is basically like watching Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg hanging out. Happily they're both pretty funny. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jun 28, 2012
3/4 35% Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) "In a movie that promises to be about little more than Abraham Lincoln and Vampire Hunting, having Mr. Walker deliver a performance that exceeds those expectations is -- to some small, ironic degree -- liberating. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jun 22, 2012
2/4 48% Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) "Even the considerable imagination and investment on display here can't make this fairytale character - or Kristen Stewart - a viable movie star. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 31, 2012
3/4 92% Marvel's The Avengers (2012) "Joss Whedon's glossy, super-budgeted Marvel ensemble flick is the cinematic equivalent of comfort food. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted May 2, 2012
2.5/4 22% The Raven (2012) "Part "Seven", part "From Hell", part "Sherlock Holmes", but despite its contrivances there are enough clever nods in the script to keep it interesting. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Apr 26, 2012
3/4 63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) "Paper-thin romantic-comedy succeeds entirely on the extreme cuteness of its two stars. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Apr 25, 2012
2.5/4 43% American Reunion (2012) "If you've been wondering what the "American Pie" gang has been up to for the past nine years, this is the movie for you. If not, why are you still reading? " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Apr 5, 2012
3/4 84% The Hunger Games (2012) "Director Gary Ross' solid adaptation aims to please fans and a mass audience alike, which is a double-edged sword. And a surprisingly blunt, bloodless one. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Mar 22, 2012
2.5/4 51% John Carter (2012) "Beautifully-realized visuals nearly make up for the well-worn story in this Disney adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs character. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Mar 8, 2012
2/4 31% Man on a Ledge (2012) "This thriller's twisty, predictable plot can't sustain its one-trick premise. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Jan 26, 2012
4/4 51% The Iron Lady (2012) "A biopic of the highest order featuring a performance of equal measure. A thoughtful, complex portrait of Britain's divisive PM. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 24, 2011
2/4 86% The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) "Surprisingly sanitized version of the Swedish blockbuster has little resonance in this Americanized form. Stick with with Swedish version - both book and film. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
Posted Dec 20, 2011
2.5/4 59% Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011) "Thanks to the addition of a delightfully sinister Moriarty, the memory of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic detective is only slightly less tarnished than in the previous installment of Guy Ritchie's bombastic franchise. " ‐ Big Picture Big Sound
