1/4 10% The Forest (2016) ""The Forest" is flawed on so many levels. It's a tiresome bore, and the story is filtered through white characters when an Asian lead could have carried the movie just fine. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 7, 2016
3/4 60% Sisters (2015) "Fey and Poehler are a hard duo to beat, even if accepting them as sisters invites some suspension of disbelief. Their characters are genuinely funny and endearing. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Dec 17, 2015
3.5/4 92% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "The ugly world portrayed here isn't for all appetites, but it is depicted with a gripping authenticity. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3.5/4 87% Straight Outta Compton (2015) "The group members' stories are overly familiar to rap fans, as are portrayals of the big bad music industry in general, but that doesn't take away from the film's dramatic tension. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 13, 2015
3/4 89% Dope (2015) ""Dope" is funny, slick and sharp. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jun 18, 2015
2.5/4 48% San Andreas (2015) ""San Andreas" is an action film that hits viewers over the head. Again and again. But isn't that exactly why you'd want to go see it? " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted May 28, 2015
1.5/4 7% Hot Pursuit (2015) "The trailers for the Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara comedy "Hot Pursuit" hint at a movie that's unfunny, insufferable and obvious. You can't say you weren't warned. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted May 7, 2015
1/4 29% Get Hard (2015) "The film's numbing lack of intelligence, exhibited from the start, makes "Get Hard" tough to watch, even by Hart/Ferrell standards. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Mar 26, 2015
2/4 14% The Lazarus Effect (2015) ""The Lazarus Effect" boasts nothing special. It's not going to provide much relief for horror-starved audiences. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Feb 27, 2015
2/4 10% The Boy Next Door (2015) "It's unashamedly of the B-movie variety - a quick and easy time-killer. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 22, 2015
3/4 82% Beyond the Lights (2014) "Prince-Bythewood isn't reinventing the wheel here, but she succeeds on a pure entertainment level. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Nov 13, 2014
1.5/4 7% Ouija (2014) "Bland, safe horror for those those who like their scares non-existent. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 23, 2014
1.5/4 22% Dracula Untold (2014) ""Dracula Untold" feels longer than its 95-minute running time. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 9, 2014
3/4 41% Tusk (2014) "It has a game cast, it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Sep 18, 2014
2.5/4 21% Into The Storm (2014) "Not all of it makes sense, but for disaster movie fans, "Into the Storm" has enough destruction to go around. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 7, 2014
3/4 80% Get On Up (2014) "If Chadwick Boseman's turn as Jackie Robinson last year in "42" made him a star, his flashy performance in James Brown biopic "Get On Up" adds another layer of shine. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jul 31, 2014
2.5/4 56% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) ""The Purge: Anarchy" is a dirtied-up breath of fresh air, an old-school exploitation movie that does what it sets out to do. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jul 17, 2014
2.5/4 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) "The film keeps many of the same parts of the first one's winning formula, beginning with Hart himself. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jun 19, 2014
3/4 8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) "This send-up of current horror movies is a go-for-broke hoot, a hot mess of a comedy that doesn't have a lick of sense. And knowing that going in adds to the often knee-slapping laughs. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2/4 73% Oculus (2014) "It's never actually scary. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 10, 2014
3/4 69% About Last Night (2014) "The four leads are entirely engaging including the manic Hart, who seems to play variations of the same character in every movie. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Feb 13, 2014
2/4 49% Black Nativity (2013) ""Black Nativity" has its heart in the right place, but that's simply not enough to make it a good movie. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Nov 26, 2013
3/4 69% The Best Man Holiday (2013) "Though not so warm and fuzzy as some fans may expect, "The Best Man Holiday" is a more than fitting return that improves upon the original in unexpected ways. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Nov 14, 2013
3.5/4 48% Carrie (2013) "The new movie won't overshadow the superior original, but that was never the point. On its own merit, "Carrie" is a bloody good time. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 17, 2013
14% Baggage Claim (2013) "Paula Patton puts on the well-worn shoes of Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts, ending up with a predictable vehicle perhaps best left in lost and found. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Sep 26, 2013
2.5/4 75% You're Next (2013) "The family's reactions and fights for survival are played for laughs just as often as shock, and the horror/comedy blend pays off. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 22, 2013
2/4 62% Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain (2013) "The film is flat and lazy, and the audio mix is so low it sounds as if the audience is barely laughing. His cable comedy specials have better production values. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jul 2, 2013
2.5/4 37% The Purge (2013) "The great premise in "The Purge" - and it is a great premise, while being no "Hunger Games" - is squandered on a few levels. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jun 6, 2013
3.5/4 61% Evil Dead (2013) "This blood-soaked remake improves on its cheeky source material, paying homage while establishing its own identity for younger horror fans who never knew there was an earlier "Evil Dead." " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 4, 2013
2/4 80% Warm Bodies (2013) "Though on the surface falling in line with any "Twilight" film, "Warm Bodies" is better produced, acted and written, which isn't saying a lot. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 31, 2013

Posted Jan 17, 2013
3.5/4 63% Sinister (2012) "It comes together with a gruesome though excellent ending that some will find difficult to shake. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 12, 2012
2.5/4 55% V/H/S (2012) "Hardcore horror lovers will soak up the gruesome morsels. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 5, 2012
3.5/4 57% Sparkle (2012) "Energetic, colorful and packed with strong performances and musical numbers good enough to get by, "Sparkle" beams brightly. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 16, 2012
3/4 76% Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) "Surely there are more interesting subjects, but Perry manages to pull it off here, coming off completely likable and real, never insufferable and fake. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Posted Jun 15, 2012
2.5/4 63% The Five-Year Engagement (2012) "At best, "The Five-Year Engagement" is very well played by its leads and supporting characters. You can't go wrong with Segel, Blunt, Pratt and Brie, the latter two TV stars who are movie-ready. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 26, 2012
3/4 53% Think Like a Man (2012) "Despite the crass book promotion, the overlong film is harmless romantic fun that's well played. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 20, 2012

Posted Apr 12, 2012
3/4 41% Red Tails (2012) "The battle scenes soar, thanks to top-notch and thrilling special effects. Quieter scenes give characters added dimension, such as those that address one officer's drinking problem. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 20, 2012
1.5/4 33% Joyful Noise (2012) "Nothing more than uninspired mushiness. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 13, 2012
2/4 36% In Time (2011) "Niccol's movie demands a lot of explanation - too much. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Oct 28, 2011
3/4 72% Fright Night (2011) "It honors the original throughout, including a memorable nightclub scene and a surprise cameo that's a huge crowd-pleaser, while at the same time giving updates to make it fresher and better than ever. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 18, 2011
3/4 90% Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest (2011) "Despite accusations of nearly succumbing to spotlighting beefs over beats, the film comes off as an honest representation of a great group that's not to be forgotten. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Aug 5, 2011
2/4 56% Jumping the Broom (2011) "The film's main thread, the class clashes, simply aren't enough to make this unnecessary movie worthwhile. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted May 6, 2011
3/4 59% Scream 4 (2011) "It's funny and scary at the same time, and fans will "Scream" with approval. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Apr 14, 2011

Posted Jan 27, 2011
22% Country Strong (2011) "Doesn't come close to matching any of the legion of films set in the country music world, from "Coal Miner's Daughter" to "Walk the Line" to "Crazy Heart." " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Jan 7, 2011
1.5/4 29% The Virginity Hit (2010) "Producers Will Ferrell and Adam McCay should know better. " ‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
