Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2.5/5 23% Dracula Untold (2014) Dracula Untold is not a masterful or deep re-introduction to the franchise; but as genre fare, it's relatively fun in its depiction of the monster in a different light. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 10, 2014
2/5 29% Annabelle (2014) Unfortunately, Annabelle can't sustain much tension before fizzling out into a boringly repetitive exercise in rehashed scare tactics. The Conjuring this is not. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 3, 2014
3/5 60% The Equalizer (2014) The Equalizer is a slow-burn, B-movie hero origin story propped up by a great lead actor and some unique stylistic flourishes. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 26, 2014
2/5 65% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) A Walk Among the Tombstones is your standard, traditional Noir flick; in other words, it feels pretty dated. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 19, 2014
4/5 41% This Is Where I Leave You (2014) Thanks to a quality ensemble cast and a willing director, This Is Where I Leave You covers overly familiar territory in a refreshingly entertaining way. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 19, 2014
2.5/5 10% No Good Deed (2014) In the end, No Good Deed is pretty much what it promises to be: your standard home-invasion thriller. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 13, 2014
3/5 25% As Above, So Below (2014) As Above, So Below milks a surprising amount of richness from its premise and found-footage format, but is hampered by its inability to fully develop both. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 29, 2014
2/5 19% Let's Be Cops (2014) Let's Be Cops tries to offer coming-of-age gravitas, action movie thrills and comedic slapstick, but never excels at any one of them. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 15, 2014
2.5/5 22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) TMNT is shallow popcorn entertainment - but within the spectrum of reboots and remakes, it falls on the safe side of honorable. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 8, 2014
4/5 91% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Guardians of the Galaxy may blast off another successful franchise for Marvel, but it has a few parsecs left to go before it can truly claim greatness. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 1, 2014
2.5/5 56% The Purge: Anarchy (2014) A step down from the original in terms of narrative but the basic promise of the series - thrills, kills, and mayhem - is still fulfilled in satisfying fashion. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jul 18, 2014
4.5/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes everything great about the first film and kicks it up to a higher level. One of the best (and most technically proficient) films of 2014. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jul 11, 2014
3/5 49% Earth to Echo (2014) A fresh-yet-familiar sci-fi adventure for adolescents that's not as good as it could've been, but still delivers a solid good time, nonetheless. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jul 3, 2014
4.5/5 95% Snowpiercer (2014) A unique vision, strong execution (in action, wit, and humor) as well as compelling characters culminate in one of the year's best dark horse hits. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jun 27, 2014
2.5/5 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) An amusing matinée or rental at best, Think Like a Man Too rests on its laurels - and, as a result, pales in comparison to its much funnier predecessor. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jun 20, 2014
4/5 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) 22 Jump Street pulls off the comedy sequel balancing act better than just about any comparative franchise - with extra points for skewing its own sequelness. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jun 13, 2014
3.5/5 91% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) Edge of Tomorrow doesn't go far enough in some respects, but its unique stylistic approach makes the experience an overall satisfying one. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jun 6, 2014
2/5 50% Maleficent (2014) In its attempt to depict the 'real story' of Sleeping Beauty, this Django Unchained of Disney fairy tales never soars as high as its bad-girl-gone-good namesake. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted May 30, 2014
4.5/5 91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) X-Men: Days of Future Past succeeds at being a thrilling and fun superhero movie, balanced by well-earned dramatic weight. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted May 23, 2014
5/5 80% Fed Up (2014) Fed Up is imperative viewing for just about anyone in America who is currently eating food. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted May 9, 2014
3/5 24% The Other Woman (2014) Not at all mandatory theater viewing, but as far as date night goes, both guys and gals will find themselves in pretty good hands with this one. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Apr 25, 2014
2/5 19% Transcendence (2014) They must've titled this movie with total irony, because Transcendence stumbles hard in its attempt to rise above. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Apr 18, 2014
2.5/5 73% Oculus (2014) The unique stylistic approach to haunted house horror will be a novelty to fans of the genre - just don't be disappointed when it all ends with a fizzle instead of a bang. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Apr 11, 2014
1.5/5 20% Sabotage (2014) Those just hoping for some good-ol' action fun - you get one major shootout set piece, a couple small sequences, plenty of blood, gore and foul language and that's about it. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Mar 28, 2014
3/5 79% The Raid 2 (2014) Falls short of matching the simple pleasure of the first installment, but for action fans, there is still plenty of next-level choreography work present in Evans' sequel. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Mar 28, 2014
2.5/5 41% Divergent (2014) Divergent falls somewhere in a middle ground between high points of The Hunger Games and the low points of The Twilight Saga. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Mar 21, 2014
3/5 80% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) Mr. Peabody & Sherman has a heart and mind but the film is still a second-tier contender when compared with similar CGI animated movie offerings. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Mar 7, 2014
2.5/5 60% Non-Stop (2014) Kick your seat back, let that tray table down, turn off the overhead light (your brain) and let this plane carry you to your destination. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Feb 28, 2014
3/5 69% About Last Night (2014) About Last Night is more unique than your average rom-com flick - even if only marginally so. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Feb 14, 2014
4.5/5 96% The LEGO Movie (2014) The LEGO Movie is a fun adventure with heart and originality that everyone (regardless of age) should experience in full, big-screen 3D grandeur. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Feb 7, 2014
1/5 18% Devil's Due (2014) Consider this one stillborn, and put your faith in better horror offerings to come. The real devil is ever having to view this movie. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jan 17, 2014
4/5 95% Her (2013) If in ten years we see people seeking the solace of love from digital companions, we'll have only to say that Spike Jonze showed us the way. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Jan 10, 2014
2.5/5 14% 47 Ronin (2013) 47 Ronin is a harmless (read: awkward but somewhat inspired) piece of action movie fluff married to a period epic. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 27, 2013
5/5 77% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) By presenting the bad and the ugly behind Wall Street so unflinchingly, Scorsese crafts an insightful and important deconstruction of post-millennial America's moral erosion. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 24, 2013
4.5/5 94% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) With a good character, a cat, and a few choice folk songs, the Coens have created one of the more authentic portraits of the torment, joy and anxiety of an artist's life. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 20, 2013
4/5 78% Saving Mr. Banks (2013) Saving Mr. Banks manages to deconstruct, and then reconstruct, an iconic character and film in a way that is at once truthful and mature but also moving and reverent. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 13, 2013
3/5 53% Out of the Furnace (2013) Out of the Furnace is definitely one of those mood movies where style trumps substance - albeit a well-acted one. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Dec 6, 2013
4/5 89% The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a much-improved sequel whose only real drawback is that it's a middle chapter - with a somewhat thin payoff. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 22, 2013
2/5 No Score Yet The Upper Footage (2013) The debate surrounding The Upper Footage (is it real or is it fake?) far outclasses the experience of actually watching the film. But therein lies the hook. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 22, 2013
3.5/5 69% The Best Man Holiday (2013) The Best Man Holiday is a worthwhile revisiting that manages to push its characters forward in a very mature and emotionally honest way. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 15, 2013
2.5/5 71% Man of Tai Chi (2013) Reeves is not yet the bridge between east and west moviemaking he's aspiring to be, but considering this is his first time directing a feature, the result is only half-bad. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 1, 2013
3/5 60% Ender's Game (2013) Ender's Game is an interesting and well-acted representation of a novel that has withstood the tests of time and changing paradigms (with good reason). ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Nov 1, 2013
3.5/5 35% The Counselor (2013) The Counselor is a novelist-turned-screenwriter experiment likely to be met with mixed reception between the 'get it' and 'don't get it' types in the audience. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 25, 2013
2/5 49% Escape Plan (2013) A shoddy, silly, testosterone-fueled action film throwback, which teeters between clever self parody and an embarrassingly bad attempt to create an actual action blockbuster. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 18, 2013
2.5/5 37% The Fifth Estate (2013) The Fifth Estate is best suited as exploratory viewing for anyone looking to get a crash-course overview on what all the WikiLeaks fuss was about. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 18, 2013
5/5 96% Gravity (2013) Given what Cuarón has done here for the film medium, Gravity is nothing less than a 5-star 2001 Space Odyssey for a whole new generation of movie lovers. Take the ride. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Oct 4, 2013
4/5 81% Don Jon (2013) Funny, witty, honest and eventually heartfelt, without having to pander to saccharine fantasies or gross-out raunch humor that have become mainstays of rom-com cinema. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 27, 2013
3.5/5 39% Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Insidious: Chapter 2 expands upon the original story in an intriguing and smart way - tweaking and evolving series ideas in new (and spooky) ways. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Sep 13, 2013
3/5 83% Drinking Buddies (2013) Drinking Buddies is a stripped-down and straightforward look at the complications of relationships that may not astound but manages as a solid indie romantic drama. ‐ ScreenRant
Posted Aug 23, 2013
1.5/5 12% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) Even with a rich and dark premise as well as a cast of thespians with actual acting chops, the story and movie are sub-par, forgettable, and crushingly boring. ‐ ScreenRant
