80% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015) "This is not just a good SpongeBob movie - it is a genuinely great use of cinema as a visual medium, funny as hell and utterly random in its dream-logic " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Feb 6, 2015
13% Seventh Son (2015) "[Bridges] is so at odds with the film's tone in every other way that it's either an intentional middle finger to the original story, or a Captain Jack Sparrow gamble that completely failed. " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Jan 5, 2015
92% The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) "In theory, we all should know that stepping into a theater automatically makes what we are about to see a story within a story - but director Wes Anderson delights in showing us the artifice " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jan 5, 2015
90% The Imitation Game (2014) "...a fine, old-fashioned Hollywood biopic of the man, filled with quality actors, an entertaining script, and the inevitable degree of minor fact-fudging to make things move along a little quicker. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jan 5, 2015

Posted Jan 5, 2015
45% The Scribbler (2014) "John Suits creates a brightly colored dystopia that mirrors the palette of superhero comics while the sets themselves resemble the grimy imagery of industrial music videos. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jan 5, 2015
100% Rocks in my Pockets (2014) "In a year when Robin Williams got us all to open up about depression, this movie felt more essential on that topic than any of the late comic's final roles. " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Jan 2, 2015
59% The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) "I am getting older, and the Hobbit movies are becoming more tedious. I don't know if there's a cause and effect relationship, but I do know that those are both truths, from where I sit. " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Nov 20, 2014
84% Alleluia (2015) "Perhaps there's a misbegotten idea to make this a franchise, as it leaves you feeling as a typical horror movie does that aspires to sequels - they could have resolved the story, and didn't. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
86% Goodnight Mommy (2015) "Honestly, without the festival hype, this would probably be a quickly forgotten number, a low-key bit of horror with a gimmick, that just happens to be from Germany. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
81% A Hard Day (2015) "This Korean action movie is so propulsive and tight that I expect the American remake rights will be snapped up by the time you read this. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
99% Leviathan (2014) "Like so many Russian works of art, this is bleak, bleak stuff. You might want that four-way vodka by the end. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
88% The Tribe (2015) "Compelling, upsetting, brutal and brilliant, The Tribe is one of the best works of cinema of the year - a familiar template recreated in what, for most, will be an entirely new world. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
97% It Follows (2015) "There's a primal fear at work here - everyone gets nervous about being followed - and even though the monster is fiction, I suspect the anxiety may pursue the viewer home. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
74% Inherent Vice (2015) "Picture a Las Vegas buffet - there's too much stuff on your plate, and a lot of it is stale chunks of melon. But then you come to the counter where they're serving the crab legs, and for a moment, it is the best thing ever. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 19, 2014
89% Big Hero 6 (2014) "I do plead guilty to wanting to make a lot of children's products my own (toys, comics and such). But this one is for them, and I'm just a welcome visitor in that world who shouldn't think too hard about it. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Nov 7, 2014
71% Interstellar (2014) "Love or hate Interstellar - or fall, like me, into a wishy-washy middle ground - you will feel like you've been on a grand journey by the end. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 27, 2014
85% John Wick (2014) "You don't go to John Wick for plot any more than you'd go to Raw Deal or Out for Justice for the same back in the day. You go because you know the star, and you want to see him give a beatdown. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 24, 2014
22% Dracula Untold (2014) "Universal, please just stop now. 3D convert the old ones if you must. But nobody wants the Justice League of CG-Heavy Semi-Monsters " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Oct 5, 2014
93% Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2012) "Yes, this documentary argues, they were crooks and hustlers, but they made amazing cheese and the occasional masterpiece...and you know you miss them. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 5, 2014
85% Kung Fu Elliot (2015) "Mark Borchardt, for all his wackiness, was talented. Scott is not...and the further the documentary follows him, the more dangerous his delusions - about himself as well as his dreams - are revealed to be. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 5, 2014
100% Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau (2015) "If you love [Moreau] as I do, or are even simply fascinated by its chaos for totally ironic reasons, this documentary is a must-watch. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 5, 2014
2% Left Behind (2014) "...it's a much better film many times over than the 2000 version with Kirk Cameron...which is to say it's still a slightly below-average movie. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Oct 3, 2014
29% Annabelle (2014) "...when it comes to directing, let's just say that the best-case scenario for Annabelle is that drag queens embrace it as a midnight show to yell at. " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Sep 24, 2014
41% Tusk (2014) "At its best, Tusk gives me hope that [Smith] can grow. At its worst, it makes me despair that he can't. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Sep 11, 2014
25% As Above, So Below (2014) "That the Dowdles made me extremely uncomfortable in the right way attests to the fact that they know how to shoot a movie. They still need to prove that they can write a great one. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Aug 29, 2014
43% Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is as Frank Miller-y as a Taliban whiskey enema " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Aug 21, 2014
30% Hook (1991) "In the end, Hook isn't great or terrible, but it's both - a film that has some wonderful moments, and some really awful ones " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Aug 18, 2014
21% Into The Storm (2014) "Hilariously, it's even positioned by movie's end as an educational film people risked their lives to make. And yet the only lesson learned here is that we can make CGI tornadoes look really cool now. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Aug 7, 2014
22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) "The way people have been talking about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you'd think Michael Bay directed it. After seeing it, you may wish he had. I did. " ‐ The Robot's Voice

Posted Jul 17, 2014
90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) "I can't say I didn't enjoy the ambition and the seriousness with which director Matt Reeves takes the potentially absurd material, but I will forewarn that "entertaining" may not be the word you're looking for here. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jul 9, 2014
91% Frank (2014) "What they've managed is a fair portrayal of group dynamics among weird, artsy types; that it doesn't venture onward to any further points is mitigated by the fact that it feels real, if not profound. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jun 18, 2014
92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) "As much as 3D detracted from, say, Man of Steel, so does it enhance How to Train Your Dragon 2. Call it How to Train Your Cranky Elders That 3D is Good Sometimes. " ‐ The Robot's Voice
Posted Jun 13, 2014
83% I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story (2015) "You'll probably be happy to know that, as per this Kickstarter-funded documentary, the man in the puffy yellow suit is just as kind and loving as the overgrown fowl he portrays " ‐ The Robot's Voice
