Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
17% Pixels (2015) It does just enough to work. Perhaps low expectations contributed to my overall enjoyment of it-an understandable state of mind given recent Kevin James and Adam Sandler films-and it may be slight, but Pixels is admittedly fun.‐ Dark Horizons

82% Ant-Man (2015) I'm not entirely convinced the character will mix well into the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe when he inevitably starts to crossover into other superhero films, but as a standalone adventure, "Ant-Man" is undeniably entertaining.‐ Dark Horizons

33% Kick-Ass 2 (2013) If you're a big fan of the first movie, prepare to be disappointed here.‐ Dark Horizons

59% Run All Night (2015) Run All Night could be the worst one yet, as it simply goes through the motions without doing much of anything particularly interesting.‐ Dark Horizons

84% Cinderella (2015) Based on the classic fairy tale, but borrowing heavily from the 1950 film, Cinderella is enchanting, a wonderful and stylish film with a charming lead and emotional narrative.‐ Dark Horizons

71% Into the Woods (2014) Into the Woods is a magical film, one that combines the natural wonder of the fairy tales it portrays with terrific songs that simultaneously poke fun of those tales and lovingly embrace them.‐ Dark Horizons

90% Frozen (2013) [Olaf] one of the most charming and hilarious Disney characters in quite some time.‐ Dark Horizons

29% Dumb and Dumber To (2014) These are dumb characters in dumb situations doing dumb things and making dumb jokes, which is the entire point.‐ Dark Horizons

91% Birdman (2014) It's a near-seamless concoction of onscreen surrealism that would make the likes of Terry Gilliam, Michel Gondry, and Spike Jonze green with envy.‐ Dark Horizons

6% Ouija (2014) It's not scary or interesting, the make-up and effects are subpar and the dialogue is ridiculous.‐ Dark Horizons

86% John Wick (2014) After years, decades even, of watching violence onscreen, revenge movies just don't seem to have as strong an impact. This realization is where the terrific John Wick finds its inspiration.‐ Dark Horizons

71% Interstellar (2014) While the ride is a bumpy one and the destination is a bit of a letdown, getting there is a trip.‐ Dark Horizons

89% Big Hero 6 (2014) Big Hero 6, based on the comic book series of the same name lacks personality, a heartfelt story or even decent laughs. It's not a terrible movie by any means, but neither is it very good. It's just kind of there.‐ Dark Horizons

48% The Judge (2014) An occasionally sloppy script and baffling directorial decisions keep this from going very far, but if you enjoy seeing two great actors at the top of their game, you can't go wrong here.‐ Dark Horizons

22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) his is an impressive, action packed film with some terrific humor and an expectedly hokey plot that is both to its benefit and detriment. ‐ Dark Horizons

22% Into The Storm (2014) Into the Storm is a mess and with so many great films to see in theaters right now, why waste your time with it?‐ Dark Horizons

18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) This is the second worst of the films, rising only slightly above 2009's Revenge of the Fallen.‐ Dark Horizons
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2014
52% Jersey Boys (2014) Some of [characters'] recklessness is so reminiscent of imbecilic television personalities that, by the end of the film's 2 hour 15 minute runtime, they can get a bit grating, which is enhanced by a story that gets progressively heavy-handed as it goes on‐ Dark Horizons

84% 22 Jump Street (2014) The jokes are fresh and more often than not manage to produce some big laughs.‐ Dark Horizons

34% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) While I'm sure fans will find something to appreciate, I personally found this to be the worst comedy since Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 and easily one of the worst of the year.‐ Dark Horizons

80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) Rarely have I ever had to fight so hard to hold back from sobbing uncontrollably in a theater as I did with The Fault in Our Stars.‐ Dark Horizons

72% Neighbors (2014) I'd love to see a movie with these two paired up again, one that doesn't rely on cruelty to garner laughs.‐ Dark Horizons

23% Need For Speed (2014) While the film is easy to look at, it's not easy to watch. ‐ Dark Horizons

59% Non-Stop (2014) If the idea of Liam Neeson being Liam Neeson-y on a plane appeals to your senses, have at it. It's not great, but you could do worse.‐ Dark Horizons

96% The LEGO Movie (2014) It's about as magical and wondrous a movie as I've seen with more laughs per minute than any movie in recent memory. The LEGO Movie is an absolute delight.‐ Dark Horizons

49% RoboCop (2014) The idea of a RoboCop is a silly one that the original film nevertheless proved could be something more. The best thing one can say about this 2014 reboot is this: it exists.‐ Dark Horizons

93% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) It's not their best-in fact, it hardly even feels like a Coen brothers movie at all-but its majestic musical numbers and fantastic performances elevate this well above the humdrum lesser filmmakers churn out.‐ Dark Horizons

78% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Though it's not a bad movie (it is Scorsese, after all), The Wolf of Wall Street is surprisingly off-putting, overlong and morally skewed.‐ Dark Horizons

51% The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) It still has a good amount of heart to it, particularly from the delightful Wiig who somehow manages to create an interesting and empathetic character out of thin material.‐ Dark Horizons

94% Her (2013) [Jonze's] latest, the futuristic sci-fi romance, Her, is another film of unrivaled excellence, one that taps into ideas and themes in the way only the mind of Mr. Jonze can. It is hands down the best American movie of 2013.‐ Dark Horizons

76% Lone Survivor (2014) It's not perfect... but this is a major step up from Berg's previous travesty. This is actually quite good.‐ Dark Horizons

19% Ride Along (2014) Despite a couple of legitimate laughs, it's largely unwatchable.‐ Dark Horizons
