4.4/5 86% Darkest Hour (2017) If you aren't interested in this stuff, it might lose you. [Gary Oldman] is engaging, there's no doubt about it, but the subject matter could lose you. ‐ Schmoes Know

4.1/5 81% Molly's Game (2018) It's two and half hours but it certainly doesn't feel like it. ‐ Schmoes Know

1.9/5 56% The Commuter (2018) None of it made sense. The whodunit, who is it. Speed did a better job of giving me the characters on the bus. ‐ Schmoes Know

4.5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Rian Johnson has made a Star Wars movie that features so many great additions to canon and mythological intrigue that will have fans buzzing for years.‐ Schmoes Know

4.5/5 96% Call Me by Your Name (2018) A deep and complex journey into discovery, Call Me By Your Name is an announcement that Timothee Chalamet is a new force to be reckoned with in cinema. Certainly a top contender for awards this season!‐ Schmoes Know

4.5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Del Toro once again shines and gets the most out of his amazing cast... Sally Hawkins leads an incredible ensemble in one of the most imaginative, emotional films of the year.‐ Schmoes Know

3.5/5 40% Justice League (2017) Overall Justice League is a fun action ride that gives us great introductions to new heroes and solid chemistry within the team. ‐ Schmoes Know

4.5/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) It's so great to see a film pay off in a way that will please both its hardcore fans and a general public that has been clamoring for it for decades.‐ Schmoes Know

58/100 83% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) There is certainly plenty of fun to be had with James Gunn's new entry in the Guardians universe, and I will look forward to more adventures with this group...but Volume 2 didn't quite hit the right note for me.‐ Schmoes Know

45/100 35% The Great Wall (2017) What begins as a promising tale of adventure devolves into a sleepy grasp at historical fiction that won't land on anyone's must-see list.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
78/100 75% Split (2017) Split does a terrific job of keeping us guessing and never allowing the audience to relax for too long; there's also some of the best humor Shyamalan has ever put on screen.‐ Schmoes Know

40/100 20% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) I can't say that I'd recommend Underworld: Blood Wars to anyone but the hardest of core fans.‐ Schmoes Know

80/100 93% Hidden Figures (2017) This is a movie that should be seen featuring a story that needed to be told.‐ Schmoes Know

88/100 100% The 24 Hour War (2016) The 24 Hour War doesn't just tell us the story of an incredible rivalry... it puts us in the driver seat.‐ Schmoes Know

93/100 81% Patriots Day (2017) Peter Berg and Mark Whalberg are back together again, and once more they do a commendable job bringing a true story to life.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jan 4, 2017
48/100 35% Live By Night (2017) Live By Night is a flat misfire, and one that hopefully a director such as Affleck can make up for with the upcoming Batman film.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2017
95/100 86% A Monster Calls (2017) One of the great films of 2016.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Dec 22, 2016
85/100 74% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) The beasts are fun, the magic exciting and the story engaging. We're off to another good start in this universe.‐ Schmoes Know

Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2016
74/100 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) A worthy tribute to the original 1960 classic, and it's a great ride for fans of action or westerns.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2016
67 59% The Light Between Oceans (2016) Overall, "The Light Between Oceans" is a fine representation of the film-making potential of director Derek Cianfrance...although it won't be mentioned among his career highlights.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Sep 3, 2016
3.4/5 50% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) With a run time that is well over two hours and probably didn't have to be; you can clearly see that Bay is still in love with slow-motion and low sweeping shots. That being said, Bay has made a good film.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jan 19, 2016
5/5 98% Inside Out (2015) It's more than just a return to form for Pixar; "Inside Out" might be one the best films they've ever made.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2015
1.9/5 27% Pan (2015) The film is overwrought with visuals that at best are hit-and-miss, and his actors all seem to be in a different movie. ‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2015
3/5 92% 99 Homes (2015) "99 Homes" can't live up to it's early promise...but it's still worth seeing for Shannon and Garfield, two of the best actors on the market today. ‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2015
4.5 85% The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (2015) We'll never get to see Cage as Superman, but with "The Death of 'Superman Lives'...What Happened?" Jon Schnepp masterfully portrays a universe where we did.‐ Schmoes Know

3.2/5 55% Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) Some of the cut-aways get tiresome, but all can be forgiven once the legendary Mel Brooks shows up for an extended role. It won't contend for Best Animated Movie of 2015, but it should make for a fun time at the movies this Halloween.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2015
3/5 65% The Visit (2015) "The Visit" shouldn't have anyone shouting from the rooftops that M. Night Shyamalan is back to his A-game...but it at least stops the blood-letting from his last decade of career wounds.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Sep 11, 2015
1.3/5 26% Vacation (2015) The jokes comes out swinging, but virtually every scene is set up basically to get us with a gross-out gag that echoes the more recent (and less funny) Farrelly Brothers efforts. ‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jul 29, 2015
4.6/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) The newest installment in Tom Cruise's franchise might be the best yet. ‐ Schmoes Know

4/5 59% Southpaw (2015) "Southpaw" gives movie fans what they want: great performances and an emotional core that will resonate even with non-boxing fans.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jul 27, 2015
3/5 46% Irrational Man (2015) The performances are great, and Allen sits back and let's the stars do the work this time around. Not for everyone, but "Irrational Man" might just surprise viewers not expecting to care.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
4/5 86% Trainwreck (2015) Cameos galore ensue, most notably by LeBron James and John Cena...both athletes show a surprising amount of comedic chops. Colin Quinn, Brie Larson and an almost unrecognizable Tilda Swinton all deliver great supporting turns as well‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2015
4.5/5 82% Ant-Man (2015) Poking fun at itself while still treating it's subject matter with respect is no easy task, but the stars handle it magnificently. "Ant-Man" is one of the most unexpectedly fun rides you can have in the MCU...or anywhere else for that matter.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jul 15, 2015
3/5 45% Ted 2 (2015) Certainly worth the price of admission for the laughs, but we could've used more in the last third of the film.‐ Schmoes Know

4/5 90% Winning: The Racing Life Of Paul Newman (2015) A documentary worth watching for racing fans, film buffs or anyone else looking for an engaging time at the movies.‐ Schmoes Know

4.5/5 82% Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015) Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has directed a touching movie that will indeed tug on your heartstrings, but in such a unique way that it feels like the very first time.‐ Schmoes Know

3.8/5 33% Entourage (2015) If you've never seen the show, check out the flick then have fun on HBO Go. Oh yeah.‐ Schmoes Know

3.5/5 71% Jurassic World (2015) It can't be the amazing revelation the first film was, but "Jurassic World" is a great amusement park ride...and the best sequel to it's predecessor we've had.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2015
2.5/5 65% Pitch Perfect 2 (2015) It's not a disaster by any means, it's simply just a sequel that could have been better, but couldn't quite find the pitch.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted May 15, 2015
4.8/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) The audience feels transported to this post-apocalyptic setting, and the mind-blowing action sequences rival any that have ever been put to film. George Miller does a magnificent job in recapturing the feel of his beloved "Mad Max" franchise.‐ Schmoes Know
Read More | Posted May 15, 2015
3.7/5 59% Maggie (2015) It's a slow burn here, and occasionally it flirts with boredom, but "Maggie" still is a worthy endeavor for fans to see a new side of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenneger. ‐ Schmoes Know
