58% Me Before You (2016) As far as weepy summer romantic dramas go, Me Before You may be a tad more predictable and not quite a three-hankie tearjerker, but it still achieves the requisite feels, buoyed by an effervescent performance from Emilia Clarke. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Jun 5, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) While it isn't as stellar as the first two - First Class and Days of Future Past - X-Men: Apocalypse still manages to thrill you with its mutant action and impeccable characterizations. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted May 27, 2016
92% The Nice Guys (2016) The Nice Guys is just pure wackiness all the way through - a straight-up crime mystery filled with hilarious antics and plenty of violence. A perfect addition to the summer movie roster. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted May 22, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) Buckle in. The ultimate battle of superhero titans is about to take off in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War and hold onto your seats, folks, because this is one helluva ride - and the best Marvel movie to date. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted May 6, 2016
90% Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) For a third installment in a series, Barbershop: The Next Cut feels just as original and relevant as if this were the first one. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Apr 23, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn't in any way a perfect comic book movie, but it has enough going for it that will make fans happy. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Mar 26, 2016
50% Altered Minds (The Red Robin) (2015) Altered Minds moves almost too slowly through a family's dynamics but culminates with a heart-wrenching punch in the gut. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Mar 24, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) Midnight Special shrouds its sci-fi story in marvelous mystery but tackles the narrative's complexities with heart and soul. Another winner from writer/director Jeff Nichols. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Mar 20, 2016
90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Make sure to bring someone with you who doesn't mind if you unexpectedly grab their arm. 10 Cloverfield Lane is one of the best psychological thrillers to come along in awhile. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Mar 11, 2016
43% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) A big-screen adaptation of the best-selling novel took some time to reach theaters, but it was worth the wait. PPZ is rip-roaring, zombie guts-spewin', Jane Austen conventional fun. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Feb 6, 2016
92% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just what the fans have been hoping and dreaming about for a long, long time. ‐ The Movie Kit

33% By The Sea (2015) The intent to show something meaningful, something personal in "By the Sea" is lost in the slow, morose drag of it all. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Nov 14, 2015
85% Trainwreck (2015) Applaud the hotter-than-hot Amy Schumer... Trainwreck just works, from start to finish. ‐ The Movie Kit

79% Furious 7 (2015) Rev your engines... and grab the tissues. Furious 7 delivers the same outrageous thrill ride you expect , but tears will also flow for the late Paul Walker. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Apr 7, 2015
2/4 48% Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011) Mr. Popper's Penguins will certainly delight the kiddies, but their parents might wish for a tad more Jim Carrey irreverence. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Jun 20, 2011
2/4 49% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) No need to tread lightly. The third installment to the Chronicles of Narnia definitely fairs better than the last one, Prince Caspian, but it still can't hold a candle to the first Narnia movie ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Dec 12, 2010
2/4 49% Love and Other Drugs (2010) Remember the game of reading fortune cookie proclamations out loud and ending them with the phrase 'in bed'? That's sort of how I feel Love and Other Drugs ended many scenes--in bed. ‐ The Movie Kit

Posted Jul 17, 2010
3/4 81% Despicable Me (2010) Despicable Me follows a tried and true formula of good story decent animation = entertaining family film. But it isn't quite up to Pixar quality. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Jul 10, 2010

4/4 99% Toy Story 3 (2010) It doesn't try to surpass its predecessors but simply continues the story in such a wonderful, natural progression that it melds with ease into the brilliance that is the Toy Story lore. ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Jun 22, 2010
3/4 72% Get Him to the Greek (2010) Get yourself to see the Greek. It's raunchy, tasteless, hilarious, and surprisingly poignant (at times). ‐ The Movie Kit
Posted Jun 4, 2010
2/4 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) Prince of Persia is the sort of popcorn-eating, mindless actioner you'd expect for the summer, made only slightly more appealing by Jake Gyllenhaal's performance. ‐ The Movie Kit
